Infighting Among Democrats Over House Power Positions Turns Racial

Uh oh.

Published

on

While progressives like to act as if they have a leg up on unity and harmony, especially as it involves tolerance in racial issues, the truth of the matter is, they are just as fallen, wicked, and sinful as everyone else.

The newest wave of infighting that has been ripping the Democratic Party at the seams is proof of this truth. It seems individuals in the party are taking the battle over power positions in the House of Representatives in a racially divisive direction.

“Rep. Jim Clyburn of South Carolina on Tuesday accused detractors of using racially-charged ‘dog whistles’ to undermine his bid for the No. 3 slot in House Democratic leadership,” McClatchy’s Emma Dumain reports. “Clyburn, the current assistant Democratic leader and highest ranking black lawmaker in Congress, told McClatchy race was being injected into the competition for House majority whip.”

While Clyburn didn’t name names, he did provide some more context and suggestions about the kinds of “dog whistling” taking place among his Democratic colleagues.

“I don’t know where it’s all coming from,” he told McClatchy. “But someone came to me over the weekend and told me that (they heard), when I was whip before, I was a figurehead.”

Such criticisms of the only black member of the Democratic leadership team, he suggested, was “the little dog whistles that have been floating around this side for a long time,” Clyburn said. “What do you mean, I was a figurehead? Nothing could be further from the truth.”

Challenging Clyburn for majority whip, the congressman tasked with solidifying votes to promote the leadership’s agenda, is Colorado’s Rep. Diana DeGette, who served as chief deputy whip for 14 years. Her decision to oppose him surprised Democrats, who expected that Clyburn, who served as whip from 2007 to 2011, would run unopposed.

Clyburn told McClatchy that he does not blame DeGette for what he characterized as racially charged criticisms that are not “complimentary” to the Democratic caucus.

DeGette’s spokesman says the congresswoman “categorically and respectfully rejected” any notion that either she or any of her supporters were promoting any racially charged criticisms of Clyburn. But she’s also making clear that she believes she can be more effective than him in the role.

This is the inevitable end result of identity politics being played out within the Democratic Party. It’s a way of thinking that leads to disunity and discord, ripping away at the fabric of our great nation.

Yet, liberals will still continue to practice this line of thinking with reckless abandon. It’s tragic.

Jon Voight Releases Awesome New Video Praising Trump, Left Will Hate It

Great video!

Published

on

Actor Jon Voight has not been shy about his support for President Trump, and he continues to be one of the few outspoken conservative voices in Hollywood, which in and of itself is a tough gig. Yet, no matter the hate he gets, he continues to fearlessly proclaim what he believes in, with no worry of the consequences. In fact, Voight just released a new video where he praises Donald Trump and slams folks on the left for their attacks on the president. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: Voight started by targeting the Left: This is not peace. This is not love; this is hate among the radical Left. No amount of “book-smart” will show the given policy of what truth stands for. Truth is a powerful emotion. Love is what we should be voting for, and I must say that we, the Republican party, have voted for renewal, for a place of safety, a community where all can have peace. But this is war among the Left; they have hate; it’s like a venom. No words of God, no words of love, but a radical emotion of hate. He segued to the president: “I’ve said this many times and I am saying it again from the deep truths of my heart and soul: President Trump is a man of truths, love and justice for the American people and also for the people of a sacred place: Israel. Not only does he love our country, the United States of America, but he has a love for the people of all nations. “ Voight concluded with the hope that members of the Left would put aside their hatred and stand for liberty and justice: “Let us pray for peace; let us pray for this country, that President Trump will take…

AOC’s At It Again. Look What She Wants To Be Abolished Now.

More nuttiness from the Peanut Gallery.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just cannot keep herself from saying something stupid to save her life. It’s become so common place to see a news story about something ridiculous that’s come out of her mouth that it almost feels odd when there’s not a story about her somewhere. AOC recently posted an Instagram Live Story, something she loves to do, despite how often she makes a fool of herself, mocking the U.S. voting system, calling for the abolishment of the Electoral College. These folks absolutely want to silence anyone and everyone who doesn’t live in a major urban center, which also happen to be run mostly by liberals. via The Daily Wire: “We’re coming to you live from the Electoral College,” Ocasio-Cortez said as she recorded an empty desert highway. “Many votes here as you can see — [it’s a] very efficient way to choose leadership of the country. I mean, I can’t think of any other way, can you?” The self-proclaimed “radical” congresswoman cited a March 2019 report from New York Magazine’s daily Intelligencer newsletter titled “Here’s Every Defense of the Electoral College — and Why They’re All Wrong.” She subsequently noted that the report is for “all the Republicans getting big mad [because] the electoral college is, in fact, a scam.” Ocasio-Cortez touched on several intersecting points, all of which are based on the underlying idea that the American voting system is racist and therefore is discriminatory against minorities. “The Electoral College has a racial injustice breakdown,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Due to severe racial disparities in certain states, the electoral college effectively weights white voters over voters of color, as opposed to a ‘one person, one vote’ system where all are counted equally.” AOC went on to say, “You may have heard this Electoral College argument the most: that families…
