Race tears Democrats apart



All minorities are victims. Some are more victim than others.

And that is causing Democrats to implode.

The Hill reported, "Congressional Black Caucus members are furious at Justice Democrats, accusing the outside progressive group aligned with firebrand Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) of trying to oust lawmakers of color, specifically African-American lawmakers.

"Justice Democrats is backing primary challengers to eight-term Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas), a Hispanic Caucus member, and 10-term Rep. Lacy Clay (D-Mo.), a member of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC). The insurgent group also made noise this year about challenging Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.), a CBC member seen as the heir apparent to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)."

AOC knocked off Joe Crowley who was a previous heir to Pelosi's throne. He was a white guy in a largely Hispanic district, so that was OK.

The Hill said other black congressmen worried about being primaried are Yvette Clarke of New York, Joyce Beatty of Ohio, Emanual Cleaver of Missouri and Anthony Brown of Maryland.

Democrat Congressman Gregory Meeks of New York told The Hill, "It just seems strange that the social Democrats seem to be targeting members of the Congressional Black Caucus, individuals who have stood and fought to make sure that African Americans are included and part of this process.

"I don’t know what that agenda is, but if they want to come after members of the Black Caucus, it’s two ways."

The Justice Democrat organization said some of its best candidates are black.

Executive director Alexandra Rojas told The Hill, "We are supporting a black woman who is a community organizer who has taken on police brutality in the St. Louis area. 70% of congressional districts in America have no competitive general election; primaries are often the only places where voters can have a real say."

"Barack Obama first ran for Congress in a primary challenge to Rep. Bobby Rush, a CBC member. This is a democracy and voters deserve choices."

Congressman Clay is particularly upset that a group of non-black minorities is challenging him. His father held the seat before him. Between the two of them, they have represented Missouri's 1st district (largely St. Louis) for 50 years. The median household income for the district remains $12,000 below the national average.

The Hill reported, "He likened Justice Democrats to 'Russian trolls of 2016' trying to sow divisions in the Democratic party."

Clay told the newspaper, "They are going after the wrong target instead of fighting Republicans and defeating Trump and holding onto our majority, they find it convenient to go after their own, which is to me a bunch of B.S."

The party is in trouble. The midterms put them in power in the House, a power they were not prepared to handle. They thought they could. After all, Nancy Pelosi had been speaker.

But that was nearly a decade earlier. Much changed in that time. By not letting someone else take over as the party's House leader, she deprived Democrats of fresh leadership.

Obama gave Democrat voters hope. He was going to fundamentally transform America into a socialist state.

They blamed his failure on Republicans taking control of the House. Now that they have the House back, they want to impeach President Donald John Trump in 2019 and elect a socialist in 2020.

This is why all of the 20-plus Democrat presidential candidates are rushing to the left. Notice that when one of them says something crazy (reparations!) they all quickly follow. They do not want to be left behind.

But in the House, things are different. Guys like Clay, who inherited his daddy's congressional seat, have it good and are in no way going to rock the boat. They see Tide Pod Evita (as one reader called AOC) as a feather in the wind who will blow away next year if they can find a Hispanic challenger to primary her.

The gap between today's Democrat base of outright socialists and the party's lifers in Congress is wide. Charges of racism were inevitable. The establishment includes many black congressmen. The challengers are largely non-black.

Conservatives should enjoy the show but we should bear in mind our own success in ridding Republicans of Paul Ryan and the House of Bush.

Botox Pelosi is our John McCain as she disses the Four Horsewomen of the Apocalypse.

Let us hope there is no Donald Trump on their side.

  1. The challengers are largely non-black.

    So are her sponsors the ones who held auditions for candidates to go after Crowley's seat.

    And its amusing to watch the career race baiters get race baited. Karma time.

  3. There can be no "Donald Trump" on that side.

    President Trump is MAGA.

    We are MAGA.

    Americans are MAGA.

    Just taking a shit on our American soil does not one an American.

    Nor does mooching off of the earned incomes of actual Americans.

    So, no Don.

    Presuming you meant to imply something else entirely on that.

  4. Blacks are so yesterday. The new darlings are Hispanics and Hispanic illegal immigrants. Bigger voting bloc.

    1. Exactly, the DNC went from Donna Brazille to Tom Perez. Perez was picked over Keith Ellison. The current DNC spokeswoman is Xochitl Hinojosa.

  5. What happened to that investigation of Justice Democrats, the org that had AOC on board of directors or some such conflict. Also taking money illegally?

  6. Bobby Rush cleaned Obama's clock using the same "not really black" issue being raised about Kamala Harris. Bobby Rush is a former Black Panther, so his racial identity credentials are rock solid.

    Obama won his first election the Chicago way - he got everybody else (including the incumbent) kicked off the ballot.
