Congressional Black Caucus Furious That Justice Democrats Targeting Black Lawmakers

As I’m sure you’ve read, Nancy Pelosi is in a bit of a spat with AOC and the other 3 members of her Brat Pack, with AOC firing back at one point about  “the explicit singling out of newly elected women of color.” Some other Democrats are coming back swinging at the Brat Pack, and then there’s this

CBC lawmakers rip Justice Democrats for targeting black lawmakers for primaries

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.).

And CBC leaders are fretting that Justice Democrats may target other black lawmakers in the coming weeks and months, including Reps. Yvette Clarke (D-N.Y.), Joyce Beatty (D-Ohio), Emanual Cleaver (D-Mo.) and Anthony Brown (D-Md.). Brown said the group has been making calls in his district, actively trying to recruit a challenger to run against him.

“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,” Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-N.Y.), a senior CBC member, told The Hill.

“I don’t know what that agenda is, but if they want to come after members of the Black Caucus, it’s two ways,” warned Meeks, the Queens Democratic party boss who clashed with Justice Democrats in a local district attorney race last month.

Now, in fairness, some of the challengers are Black, but, this sure seems to be an attempt to, using their language, silence the voices of Blacks who have done great work for the community.

Some Democrats are hoping that Ocasio-Cortez, the rabble-rousing freshman with 4.7 million Twitter followers, gets a primary challenge herself in 2020.

You can almost be this will happen. Polls in NY14 shows that only 13% of the people in that district want her re-elected. Personally, I hope she sticks around, along with the rest of her America hating pack, because this just hurts the Democrats.

      The Democrat Communist presidential campaign is gonna be a hoot! An entire party that use to do everything it could to hide its hate and contempt for America all coming out at one time as hateful seditionists, traitors and quislings and all trying to out-badmouth America. They think that showing contempt for the country they want to rule is a winning strategy. God bless the ignorant, pagan, communist, soulless beings.

      Trump 2020 Cause DemCons hate America!
