Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., has made some concessions to the House Freedom Caucus, earning enough support to be voted House speaker for the new Congress.

But apparently there were some “words” before that point was reached.

And to help clarify what was said, the popular “Bad Lip Reading” YouTube channel released a video of one of the exchanges between McCarthy and a chief critic, Rep. Matt Gaetz.

Here it is:

At the Powerline blog was this comment: “That was quite a dramatic scene on the House floor Friday night when Kevin McCarthy walked up the aisle and confronted Matt Gaetz. I’m not a good enough lip reader to know what passed between them, but fortunately we have the experts at Bad Lip Reading on the job,and they have decoded it for us.”

The “conversation,” purportedly starts out with McCarthy asking. “Son? What does a gopher build?”

It deteriorates from there.

One of Gaetz’s responses is, “I think you don’t know algebra.”

He shortly adds, “Is that a tiger?” pointing into the House aisle.

McCarthy continues, “One of your friends promised me I could flick you in your face.”

Gaetz? “Absolutely you may not do that.”

When McCarthy orders, “Say any cereal name,” Gaetz responds, “Cinnamon Toast Crunch.”

EDITOR’S NOTE: The “Climate Change Cult.” The “Anti-Racism Cult.” The “Cult of Wokeness.” The “LGBTQ Cult” and its predatory offspring targeting America’s children, the “Transgender Cult.” The “Cult of Abortion.” The “COVID Cult.” The “Cult of Globalism.” “TikTok Cults.” Every month the list grows.

To right-thinking Americans attempting to make sense of a nation seemingly gone mad, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the irrational, deranged – and often demonic – leftwing political and cultural movements currently capturing the minds of millions of Americans are nothing short of full-fledged cults.

Although the high priesthood of all these leftwing religious cults – i.e., university professors, academics and other Marxist ideologues and activists – may be true believers, the people actually wielding REAL POWER do not believe any of it. To them, these leftwing cults conveniently serve to disguise and distract “the rabble” from what the leader class is REALLY up to, which is the pursuit of ever more power, wealth and glory for themselves, and a total transformation of America and the world.

All of this and much more is explored in a powerful, insightful and absolutely unique way in the latest issue of WND’s acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “HOLY WAR: Defeating the growing cult of leftism and its total war on Christianity.”
