Home Minority Chief Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is being blasted for claiming the GOP will not be the get together of nativist canine whistles.
“America is constructed on the concept that we’re all created equal, and success is earned by means of sincere, laborious work. It isn’t constructed on id, race, or faith,” McCarthy tweeted. “The Republican Social gathering is the get together of Lincoln & the get together of extra alternative for all Individuals—not nativist canine whistles.”
Conservative Invoice Kristol tweeted, “Kevin McCarthy feigns disdain for ‘nativist canine whistles’ from marginal members of Congress. However when Trump instructed different members in 2019 to return the place they got here from—shouting nativism from the rooftops—silence. After which McCarthy fortunately supported Trump for president in 2020.”
Kristol was right. McCarthy is hoping to journey the racism and canine whistles to the Home majority in 2022. His little tweet about alternative and the get together of Lincoln was solely issued to as a result of Taylor Greene and Gosar stated the quiet half out loud.
The Republican Social gathering can’t be led by Trump, whose racism was so informal that it was an nearly each day occasion and nonetheless declare possession of Lincoln’s legacy. The get together of Lincoln not exists. The Republican Social gathering is the get together of Trump, and Trumpism equals racism.
Reps. Greene and Gosar had been too blatant within the enchantment to white supremacists and racists. Discover that McCarthy has spent extra time attempting to take away Rep. Eric Swalwell from the Intelligence Committee than he has on the menace that Marjorie Taylor Greene poses to the Home and the nation.
Kevin McCarthy is a cynical and craven political climber who thinks that you’re too dumb to see by means of the apparent racism of the Republican Social gathering.
