Infighting Among Democrats Over House Power Positions Turns Racial

Uh oh.

Published

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.

Despite promising results for COVID-19 vaccines from pharmaceutical companies Pfizer and Moderna, Levine cited the need to ration them in three phases as a reason for extended preventative measures, according to Penn Live. Levine said, “We anticipate we’re going to be rolling this out through the winter and then into the spring and into the summer. It could take a significant amount of time to immunize everyone in Pennsylvania. I anticipate we’re going to be wearing masks well into 2021, maybe to the end of 2021.”

Not A Joke: AOC, Fauci, & Andrew Cuomo Nominated for ‘Person of the Year’ By TIME

Is this real life?

You’d think this would be an article posted by The Babylon Bee. After all, it literally makes zero sense to have AOC, Fauci, and Cuomo nominated for “person of the year.” It’s almost blasphemous, at this point. All three liberal radicals have done nothing to help their state or country – and that’s the way they like it. From New York Post: Dr. Anthony Fauci and the essential workers who have labored throughout the coronavirus pandemic are tied neck-and-neck as key nominees for Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year” award, a list on which New York’s Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have also landed. The annual poll opened on Wednesday and pulls from reader vote submissions, as individuals are required to vote “yes” or “no” when asked whether or not a specific nominee should be chosen as the overall award winner. […] Other nominees include artists Cardi B, Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish and one-time presidential candidate, rapper Kanye West. Georgia politico Stacey Abrams, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr’s names similarly got a nod, as well as American NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace, the NBA’s Lebron James and Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Is this real life? Would any of these people earn your vote?
