Kevin McCarthy Whines That Democrats Are Abusing Their Power By Holding Marjorie Taylor Greene Accountable

Published by

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is standing arm in arm with Marjorie Taylor Greene while complaining about Democrats holding Greene accountable.

Here is McCarthy’s statement:

Past comments from and endorsed by Marjorie Taylor Greene on school shootings, political violence, and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories do not represent the values or beliefs of the House Republican Conference. I condemn those comments unequivocally. I condemned them in the past. I continue to condemn them today. This House condemned QAnon last Congress and continues to do so today.
I made this clear to Marjorie when we met. I also

made clear that as a member of Congress we have a responsibility to hold ourselves to a higher standard than how she presented herself as a private citizen. Her past comments now have much greater meaning. Marjorie recognized this in our conversation. I hold her to her word, as well as her actions going forward.

I understand that Marjorie’s comments have caused deep wounds to many and as a result, I offered Majority Leader Hoyer a path to lower the temperature and address these concerns. Instead of coming together to do that, the Democrats are choosing to raise the temperature by taking the unprecedented step to further their partisan power grab regarding the committee assignments of the other party.

While Democrats pursue a resolution on Congresswoman Greene, they continue to do nothing about Democrats serving on the Foreign Affairs Committee who have

spread anti-Semitic tropes, Democrats on the House Intelligence and Homeland Security Committee compromised by Chinese spies, or the Chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee who advocated for violence against public servants.

In the end, this resolution continues to distract Congress, especially given the limited time that Speaker Pelosi and the Democrat leadership want the House to debate and work, on what it needs to focus on: getting Americans back to work, getting kids back to school, and providing vaccines to all Americans who need it.

McCarthy’s false equivalencies are off of the charts. How many Democrats have called for the House leadership to be executed? How many Democrats are under investigation for collaborating with an insurrection to overthrow the United States government?

Kevin McCarthy is helping Qanon to take over the Republican Party.

Instead of cooling off after Donald Trump lost, Republicans are embracing domestic terrorists and taking another step in their journey toward becoming an extremist fringe.
