House GOP leader finally grows a spine, condemns Taylor Greene over her “appalling” remarks

A consequence of making common cause with lunatics is that you are constantly called on to answer for their most extreme statements. It’s a lesson that the Republican Party has been forced to learn over and over again now that a sizeable chunk of their organization has devolved into full conspiracy theory mode. Still, they refuse to take action to actually stop the problem because they lack the courage to expel anyone from their caucus for fear of angering the MAGA base.

The QAnon Congressman, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, is quickly turning into one of the prickliest thorns in the side of GOP Leadership. Greene does not belong in polite society let alone elected government and hardly a day goes by without her releasing some truly deranged statement. Recently, she absurdly compared Jews forced by the Nazi regime to wear identifying gold stars to Americans in 2021 asked to provide proof of vaccination.

Greene tried to do some damage control by unconvincingly insisting that the meaning of her tweet was being misinterpreted.

This morning, House Minority Leader and professional coward Kevin McCarthy released an incredibly short statement saying that Greene “is wrong” and that her Holocaust comparison was “appalling.” He said that the House Republican Conference “condemns” her remarks but true to form refused to take any action beyond finger-wagging.

This kind of tepid, toothless condemnation is the best we can expect from a leader like McCarthy — a man who correctly blamed Trump for his role in the January 6th insurrection only to later backtrack and oppose the formation of a commission to investigate the deadly siege. He is a craven political creature, a man solely concerned with maintaining his own power regardless of the detrimental effects on our country.

As long as McCarthy and the rest of the leadership refuse to take a strong, moral stand and take action against the worst abuses of their party, behavior like Greene’s will continue.
