Any worse than Paul Ryan? It could be!
Even though Paul Ryan is a terrible Speaker of the House, things could actually get much worse considering the newest candidate for the job. In fact, this new prospect, Paul Nehlen, could make Paul Ryan look like a saint. As a person with ties to the “white nationalist” movement, Paul Nehlen could be much more dangerous than Paul right in ever thought of being.
This latest development came about because Paul Ryan has said that he probably won’t be seeking re-election for another term. His absence will leave open the much-coveted position of Speaker of the House, the number one job in the House of Representatives. The person who holds this office basically sets the tone for voting in the US House of Representatives.
Even though Paul Ryan, a devotee of Ayn Rand who taught a philosophy of selfishness and bashing the poor; something that Paul Ryan has always had a talent for, this new candidate for Speaker almost makes him look like a Sunday school teacher. Paul Nehlen is openly a “white nationalist” and racist.
Although some people may argue that Paul Ryan is also a racist because of his attacks on poor people and entitlement programs, I say that Paul Ryan is probably more driven by an ignorance and sense of entitlement, as is often the case in people of his ilk. If he is a racist, he hides it well, because this new candidate for Speaker seems to revel in his racism in a very open and overt way.
Paul Nehlen was very active in the campaign to elect Roy Moore, the child molesting Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate from Alabama. Nehlen was very active in his campaign, because Paul Ryan was one of the first leading Republicans to call for Moore to drop out of the race, mostly because of the controversy surrounding his low character. For this, Paul Ryan deserves some credit.
An example of Nehlen’s overt links to the “white nationalist” movement is his participation a well-known podcast called “Fash the Nation”. Apparently, the word “fash” is short for fascism.
For those people who may hate Paul Ryan, which includes me, we should stop and realize that he very well could be the lesser of two evils. Paul Nehlen is not the type of person who deserves to sit in such a high position of power as Speaker of the House of Representatives. In fact, he is the type of person who doesn’t deserve to sit in any election seat.
