Under Kevin McCarthy’s leadership over the Republican Party, Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has verbally attacked her Democratic colleagues on camera and harassed a Democratic colleague who hung a rainbow flag outside her office. Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) publicly posted an anime video of himself killing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and President Biden. Greene was stripped of her committee assignments and Gosar was eventually censured, but neither time did Kevin McCarthy come out strongly in public against those actions.

Now, the offender is Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), who said that her Muslim colleague, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), was mistaken for a terrorist and called her “the jihad squad.” After a half-hearted non-apology and a phone call that was clearly staged to lob further insults against Omar and to inspire Donald Trump to make a statement full of xenophobic accusations and lies, Boebert is left without having seen any consequences for her actions. Omar, on the other hand, is left with increasing numbers of death threats against her, a crime committed against her from her earliest days in Congress.

Ocasio-Cortez called out McCarthy for his lack of leadership and his utter inability to manage his racist, xenophobic members of the GOP House. She recently accused McCarthy of pandering to his fellow GOP Congress members in a bid to claim the Speaker of the House title in 2022 should Republicans take over the House. What’s certain is that the state of Congress today is not sustainable, and the GOP is making that more and more certain every day.

TWitter was supportive of Ocasio-Cortez and Omar, offering their thoughts and good wishes to the two women of color in Congress most targeted for harassment by the GOP.
