Well, looks like the madness of the government shutdown caused by Republicans and Democrats was too much to handle for some. A government stenographer – someone who takes notes on what people say in meetings – was dragged away after going bonkers during the vote in Congress on Wednesday to reopen the government and raise the debt ceiling. The woman, named Dianne Reidy, was reportedly taken to a hospital for a mental checkup after grabbing the microphone and spewing some serious crazy talk.
She shouted, “He will not be mocked! This is not one nation under God. It never was. The greatest deception here is this is not one nation under God! It never was. Had it been, it would not have been! The Constitution would not have been written by Freemasons! You cannot serve two masters! You cannot serve two masters! Praise be to God, Lord Jesus Christ.”
Whoa! If you’re wondering who the Freemasons are, they’re a friendly brotherhood whose origins date back to the 1400s. They became organized around groups called “lodges” in the 17th-18th centuries, and if you’ve ever seen the symbol of a math compass and ruler on someone’s car, that person’s likely a Mason.
There’s some people who believe in conspiracies (unproven rumors) that the world (especially the US) is controlled by secret societies like the Freemasons or the Illuminati. Some of them even think there’s reptiles wearing human suits ruling the world from the shadows. As you can imagine, this woman’s behavior on Wednesday has all the conspiracy nuts talking about how brave she is and that she must know the truth, but the poor dear was probably just stressed out from all the silliness of Congress.
Considering how ridiculously split the House of Representatives was these past few weeks, it’s no surprise that someone scribbling down all that babbling would feel like their own brain was cracked in two! We wish Reidy the very best of luck in recovering after her temporary mental vacation from the real world. No doubt the conspiracy nuts believe she’s being brainwashed this very moment in some dark room, hypnotized by Freemason reptiles… evil Obi-Wan Kenobi overlords waving their hands and mumbling, “These are not the Freemasons you’re looking for.”
