Kevin McCarthy: Venal Opportunist or Seditionist?

House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy said Tuesday that he won’t support a proposal to form an independent, bipartisan commission to study the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, almost certainly eroding GOP support ahead of a vote and positioning his party as opposed to investigations of the attack.

McCarthy's opposition is classic whataboutism of the vilest nature, in that he equates thos protesting against racial injustice and police brutality with those who sought to violently overturn the results of the 2020 election.

In the end, it doesn't matter if McCarthy is a seditionist or just an abject Trumpist toady. The results are the same. The only certainty is that McCarthy is not loyal to the United States of America. In a just society, he would be given an engraved wooden box that contained either a seppuku knife, a revolver with one cartridge or a teabag of hemlock leaves.

He wants us to forget about the Insurrection of January 6th.

Don't forget it.

He would however, support a bipartisan commission on how TFG was robbed of an election he overwhelmingly won. Because many

Call the bluff. Establish the commission, provide seats for the repubes ~ even if they're empty chairs ~ and let's look at this thing all the way back to the original plan: call it rigged when Clinton wins and all that follows. Talk about coordinating with the pretty bois, the buggers and oath-breakers to riot and incite violence against peaceful protestors, angry moms and leaf-blower dads; to gun 'n run, kill protestors and to loot and burn in a false-flag on the anti-fascists and plot the kidnap and murder of government officials, and then again look at the re-emergence of the original call it rigged when Biden wins plans to riot and incite violence. Let's look at the whole clothe. That's the commission I want.

Of course the commission we'll get will be a white-wash so fuck it. Just Fuck It.

They need Mueller to head up this commission. It's Mueller Time. Again.

Well, he does have a tit in the wringer about that phone call and who knows what else. He must be desperate to keep everything out of the sunlight. Oh, to have him under oath....and plead the 5th like the gangster he is....along with the GOP mob.
