No, you’re imagining things, that really is a Scooby-Doo meme being used by congresswoman Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green to argue against the New Green Deal.
During her speech on the House floor, the Republican thought using a meme from a children’s cartoon show was the best way to communicate her argument about this serious topic.
She unveiled a large poster of the popular meme where Fred unmasks an unknown villain - and in this case, the congresswoman revealed it to be the communist hammer and sickle that previously appeared on the Chinese Communist Party flag.
“This is a simple meme that you would find on the internet,” Greene said, as she pointed to the poster.
“But this meme is very real. The Green New Deal — surprise — serves China and China only,” she said, pointing to the hammer and sickle.
However, the memes didn’t stop there, as she then asked an aide to put down the Scooby-Doo meme and replace it with another meme - this time one depicting Chinese President Xi Jinping saying, “I own Joe Biden.”
Despite attempting to get down with kids through creating memes of her own, it appears to have backfired as people couldn’t believe what they were witnessing.
Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.), a widely-known critic of the Trump administration slammed Rep. Taylor Greene and tweeted: “Congress is no longer serious with people like this.”
