Most Democrats will tell you that global warming is the biggest threat the world is facing today. But Brianna Wu, a feminist and Democratic congressional candidate from Massachusetts sees things differently. She is worried that evil rich people will travel to the moon and attack the Earth by “dropping rocks” (her formulation) on the planet.

Yes, this sounds like a grade B sci-fi plot from the 1050s, but Wu is serious (and, one would hazard a guess, seriously nuts). Here via Twitchy is what she tweeted yesterday:

Although a number of Wu’s tweets on the topic appear to have been scrubbed, Twitchy has preserved several in graphic form, including this one, which further explains the threat:

A Twitter user who goes by the handle Ben Shapiro is 5’4″ provides an artist’s rendering of how the attack will be conducted:

Perhaps the saddest of Wu’s post is this one, also since deleted, that gets to the root of why she believes people on the social medium are ridiculing her:

If Wu does win a seat in Congress — and the fact she is from Massachusetts makes it likely that she will — she should immediately seek out fellow physicist Hank Johnson . He made headlines in 2010 when he shared his concerns that a large U.S. military troop buildup on Guam might cause the island to tip over.
