Former Speaker Kevin McCarthy, now on his way to an early retirement that is risking Republican control of the House in 2024, was caught praising Democrats in a speech at Oxford University about three weeks after he had his gavel taken away.
Kevin McCarthy repeated Woke talking points during his speech in a passage that is reflective of the Democrats’ identity politics.
“When I look at Democrats they actually look like America, when I look at [Republicans] they look like the most restrictive country club,” he said.
The former Speaker was caught repeating Woke talking points when he thought no one was looking. But his words are a betrayal of tens of millions of diverse, unique, working class Americans who have supported the Republican Party.
They are farmers and truck drivers and soldiers and nurses and doctors and countless others who value America and what it stands for. They love the country for the life, liberty and pursuit of happiness that are enshrined as its founding principles and want to maintain the American Dream that made the nation great for future generations.
Kevin McCarthy, according to his words, is repeating a dishonest message that contends that such core beliefs only run skin deep; the promise of America is for “white people” and not for all of humanity. It is a deeply dishonest and socially destructive argument.
McCarthy participated in a discussion titled ‘This House Believes US Interventionism Has Done More Harm Than Good.’ He was one of six speakers at the occasion. His speech was in opposition to the measure.
Kevin McCarthy’s abrupt retirement announcement over being ousted as speaker now threatens Republican control of the House.
With the retirement of McCarthy at the end of the year, the expulsion of Rep. George Santos (R-NY), and the departure of Rep. Bill Johnson (R-OH), House Republicans may lose their majority before 2024.
Republicans currently possess a razor-thin four-seat lead in the House, but that number will decrease to two in the new year. The margin of error for House Republicans is virtually non-existent.
But they still may be better off without “Republicans” like Kevin McCarthy.
