House Republican Kevin McCarthy, Speaker of the House from California (Calif.), unveiled Tuesday his choices for the Select Subcommittee on Coronavirus Pandemic. COVID19 compared the Holocaust to wearing masks on the face and said that the Democratic hoax about the deadly virus omicron was an exaggeration.

“The 118th Congress marks a new beginning for this institution,” McCarthy made the announcement in a statement, naming his selections for this subcommittee. “Republicans’ governing agenda will be based on transparency, accountability, and solutions.”

He’s not wrong that it’s a new beginning: It’s a fresh infusion of bonkers atop the House panel charged with conducting oversight of the government’s response to the COVID pandemic. McCarthy gave out many high-profile seats on the committee to extremeists in order to win their support for his speakership. However, in this particular case his appointments seem laughable.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R.Ga.), one of his choices for the coronavirus panels, was regularly kicked out Twitter by Twitter spreading malware COVID misinformation to hundreds of thousands of people in violation of the company’s policy at the time.

Greene was suspended in July 2021 When she claimed COVID-19 wasn’t dangerous unless you were obese or over the age of 65. She was suspended again One month later she made the same mistake again COVID The vaccines are “failing.” Her name was permanently banned in January 2022 Falsely tweeting about “extremely high amounts of Covid vaccine deaths.” After Elon Musk’s takeover of the website, Twitter reinstated Twitter’s account.

Greene also suggested that a mask be worn on the face by those who were required to. House From the floor, to the Holocaust.

“You know, we can look back at a time in history where people were told to wear a gold star, and they were definitely treated like second-class citizens, so much so that they were put in trains and taken to gas chambers in Nazi Germany,” she said in May 2021. “And this is exactly the type of abuse that Nancy Pelosi is talking about.”

The Georgia firebrand’s comments came at a time in the pandemic when more than 100 House Republicans refused to say if they were vaccinatedThis prompted former Speaker Pelosi, to maintain a mandate for the use of a mask. House floor.

Ronny Jackson, a Texas Republican and a former doctor to Presidents Donald Trump (and Barack Obama), was also selected for the job. House coronavirus panel. He claimed the right to be a member of the coronavirus panel in November 2021. the omicron variant of COVID was a Democratic hoax to justify new mail-in ballot rules — a version of a right-wing conspiracy theory that President Joe Biden and public health officials were taking action on COVID entirely to boost Democrats’ electoral prospects.

“Here comes the MEV — the Midterm Election Variant! They NEED a reason to push unsolicited nationwide mail-in ballots,” Jackson tweetedOmicron is the abbreviation for omicron. “Democrats will do anything to CHEAT during an election — but we’re not going to let them!”

Jackson was seen wearing a mask during the initial and worst period of pandemic in July 2020 “a personal choice.” These comments not only contradicted the universal advice from public health specialists but also undermined another Texas Republican governor, Gov. Greg Abbott had required that all state residents use a mask.

Jackson, a strong Trump ally is tweeted Tuesday that he can’t wait to get to work on the new subcommittee, where “Every LIE that was used to LOCK YOU DOWN will be unearthed.”

Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-Texas), a member of the GOP's new COVID subcommittee, claimed the omicron variant was a Democratic hoax to justify new mail-in ballot rules.
Rep. Ronny Johnson (R.Texas), who is also a member GOP”New” COVID Subcommittee claimed that the omicron version was a Democratic hoax in order to support new rules for mail-in voting.

McCarthy’s other GOP Picks for the COVID Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks, Iowa (who is a member of the subcommittee), also serves as a member. spread false information Information about the CDC mandate COVID Children’s vaccines and those not being affected COVIDRep. Michael Cloud (Texas), who will be retiring in March 2020 voted against Families First COVID Response Act provided free emergency funding through the provision of unlimited funds COVID Testing and paid time off for those affected by the pandemic. Rep. John Joyce (Pa.). filed a bill To stop the government issuing standardised COVID Vaccine status cards. And Rep. Rich McCormick of Georgia, an ER physician. spread misinformation Information about Masks COVID vaccines.

Good news! The new subcommittee is a positive step in any direction. GOP Members having credibility is the fact that not all of them voted for the 2020 presidential election results based upon the same lie as the one that led to a failed coup at Capitol Hill on January 6, 2021.

Out of nine Republicans who were selected to serve on this panel, six attempted to prevent peaceful presidential transfer: Reps. Nicole Malliotakis (N.Y.), Debbie Lesko (Ariz.), Cloud, Joyce, Greene and Jackson.

Three more GOP Miller-Meeks (Ohio), McCormick, and chairman Brad Wenstrup are all members of the commission.
