House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) made an a** of himself on Tuesday by calling on Democrats to change the name of their party if they are serious about fighting racism.

Republicans are the party of racism and voter suppression today. There is no doubt about it. They are also the party of insurrection. Yet they are obsessed with attacking Democrats for the past sins of the Democratic Party even though the party is no longer what it was during the Civil War and Jim Crow eras.

Up to the 1960s when racists began switching their allegiance to the Republican Party, it had been the Democratic Party that defended racist policies. Ever since then, Republicans have made it clear that their party is no longer the Party of Lincoln.

But Kevin McCarthy is pretending that the word Democrat is racist even though it means to advocate for democracy, something Republicans no longer support.

During a Fox News interview, McCarthy attacked black lawmakers and said that if they really care about ending racism they should move to change the Democratic Party name, a notion that is utterly ridiculous.

Clearly, McCarthy has adopted QAnon Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s (R-Ga.) schtick of attacking black lawmakers in their desperation to convince everyone that racism no longer exists in America even though such a claim is complete bullsh*t.

If a political party should have to change its name, it’s the Republican Party, which should go ahead and make the switch to Nazi Party or Neo-Confederate Party. The GOP not only is racist, it no longer believes in democracy. It no longer believes America should be a republic, but rather that it should be an authoritarian state.

Twitter users mocked McCarthy’s stupidity.
