Former Speaker Newt Gingrich recently voiced his vehement objection to the lack of support for Kevin McCarthy's bid for Speaker of the House, branding those against him as "Kamikazes."
In his words, Gingrich asserted that these individuals "will sink the whole Republican Party." Unfortunately, many suggest that it is not the Kamikaze objectors but rather the weak and secret-sleeping Republican party itself that has led to this decline.
McCarthy is not seen by many as the leader America needs right now in light of its slow descent into communism and subsequent erosion of individual rights.
This sentiment only intensified when The New York Times investigative reporters Jonathan Martin and Alex Burns revealed passages from their book “This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future” detailing a private phone call between McCarthy and Liz Cheney on January 10th 2021.
In this call McCarthy allegedly advised Trump to resign before his term ended, an assertion which was promptly rejected by Mark Bednar on behalf of McCarthy who said that he had never suggested such a thing. Rachel Maddow then released a leaked version of the conversation later confirmed by Tucker Carlson whose warnings regarding McCarthy's potential speakership if Republicans gain control of Congress in 2023 further solidified public opinion against him.
It was only recently when Matt Gaetz released a damning video exposing McCarthy's true colors that any doubts have been silenced.
The real Kevin McCarthy won’t take on Big Tech.
He’ll work with them to censor conservatives like @RepBarryMoore.
He should not be Speaker. pic.twitter.com/W8sWZhZ8Ll

It showed without a doubt why Republicans should not trust McCarthy with leading them in a post-Biden world should they regain control of Congress and must be taken seriously before making any decisions about him. Ultimately, it seems clear that Newt's accusations are pointing at the wrong group, instead, it is likely to be weak Republicans' poor handling of their own agenda that has sunken their own ship, one which Kevin McCarthy cannot save them from now.
