Richard Spencer is quoted and sums up our attitude on the demise of House Speaker John Boehner:
“Spencer is equally disillusioned with those rumored to be the next Speaker—like Reps. Kevin McCarthy or Paul Ryan. But he says he sees a bright future for sect of white separatists like him that he believes to be burgeoning within the GOP.
“I’m not particularly impressed with the putatively more ‘conservative’ Republicans who are in position to take Boehner’s place. Indeed, they seem just as much products of the past as the current Speaker,” said Spencer. “In the end, politics is a lagging indicator of social change. And the Right of the future is just now taking shape.”
It is great that Boehner is finally gone, that his own caucus couldn’t stand the stench any longer, but is only a small victory. Boehner’s resignation is the equivalent of Obama resigning and Joe Biden becoming president. If Boehner is replaced by another donor class puppet like Kevin McCarthy, it will be business as usual.
