I have bitten my tongue on this weasel, preferring to give him time and space to show a personal shift and change in value for leadership. However, I have no more tongue to bite. The comments by Kevin McCarthy condemning Marjorie Taylor Greene are obtuse in the extreme.
MTG was making a point about COVID vaccinations creating two classes of people, vaxxed -vs- non vaxxed. She compared the current pressure by government to the pre-Nazi era where German Jews were made out to be second class citizens. It was, perhaps, a poor metaphor; however, it was not any form of an attack against Jewish people or any comparison to the Holocaust.
That said,the media wanted to turn this into an attack against Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene because they hate her…. and so they twist her words… And just like the typical GOPe quislings that have come before him, House Leader Kevin McCarthy shows up just in time to throw fuel on their false narrative:
Kevin McCarthy – “Marjorie is wrong, and her intentional decision to compare the horrors of the Holocaust with wearing masks is appalling. The Holocaust is the greatest atrocity committed in history. The fact that this needs to be stated today is deeply troubling.
“At a time when the Jewish people face increased violence and threats, anti-Semitism is on the rise in the Democrat Party and is completely ignored by Speaker Nancy Pelosi. “Americans must stand together to defeat anti-Semitism and any attempt to diminish the history of the Holocaust. “Let me be clear: the House Republican Conference condemns this language.” (link)
McCarthy has got to go.
