(NationalSentinel) Democrats love to pretend that their party is the most ‘compassionate’ when it comes to race, but a more accurate term for how the Donkey Party views racial issues is “political expediency.”
To believe that the party of the KKK, the party that caused the Civil War, the party of slavery, that opposed the Civil Rights Act, and that embraces abortion as a means of culling minorities really cares about men and women of color is to believe that Hillary Clinton really was cheated out of the presidency.
Case in point: After spending all weekend characterizing and criticizing POTUS Donald Trump’s tweets bashing Rep. Elijah Cummings for neglecting his “rat-infested” s**thole of a Maryland congressional district for decades as “racist,” some Democrats turned their ire on one of their own by Monday.
And for the same reason: Er, racism!
As Politico reports, Democrats are ticked off at Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chair Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-Ill.) because she’s too white and racist to appoint a ‘person of color’ to ranking positions within the organization.
Qualifications have nothing to do with anything, you see; to Democrats, only skin color matters and if your skin doesn’t have any color, no matter what you do or say it’s always racist.
Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairwoman Cheri Bustos (D-Ill.) was set to make an unplanned trip to Washington from her district Monday amid an outcry from top black and Latino lawmakers over a lack of diversity in the campaign arm’s senior management ranks.
Bustos’ sudden return to D.C., just days after Congress left for a six-week-long August recess, comes as aides and lawmakers are calling for systematic changes to the DCCC, the party’s main election organ.
POLITICO reported last week that black and Hispanic lawmakers are furious with Bustos’ stewardship of the campaign arm. They say the upper echelon of the DCCC is bereft of diversity, and it is not doing enough to reach Latino voters and hire consultants of color. In addition, several of Bustos’ senior aides have left in the first six months of her tenure, including her chief of staff — a black woman — and her director of mail and polling director, both women.
Now, mind you, a black woman was Bustos’ chief of staff; she left (wasn’t fired), likely because she and Bustos did not see eye-to-eye.
That’s not racism, that’s life. Not everyone gets along, and not everyone doesn’t see eye-to-eye because they don’t have the same skin tone. Some people just disagree.
Kind of like criticizing a lawmaker who chastises your DHS appointees over the migrant crisis isn’t racism either — unless, of course, the lawmaker you’re criticizing is both a Democrat and a person of color.
But here’s the ‘party of race consciousness’ eating one of its own because she’s white and she hasn’t prostrated herself before the altar of racial correctness that the Donkey Party has established as a 21st-century litmus test for political power:
In the most dramatic move so far, Texas Reps. Vicente Gonzalez and Filemon Vela told POLITICO Sunday that Bustos should fire her top aide, DCCC executive director Allison Jaslow.
“The DCCC is now in complete chaos,” the pair said in a statement to POLITICO. “The single most immediate action that Cheri Bustos can take to restore confidence in the organization and to promote diversity is to appoint a qualified person of color, of which there are many, as executive director at once. We find the silence of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus on this issue to be deafening.”
In response to the outcry, Bustos has agreed to participate in diversity and inclusion training for DCCC employees. An August training had previously been scheduled for just staff.
Bustos is married to a man of Mexican descent, making their children Hispanic enough to claim it on the Census if they choose to someday. One is marrying an African-American woman.
But none of this matters to the race hustlers and race-baiters in the DCCC and Democrat Party. There is no such thing as “diversity” when even a single white person has any power in the organization.
So forgive us if, again, we ignore the braying of the Donkey Party crying wolf … er, racism … again. And again. And again.
Though true racism does, of course, still exist, because the Democrat Party has labeled everything racism then nothing is anymore. Or at least that’s how more and more Americans see it.
If Democrats weren’t so fixated on using race as a tool to gain and then enhance their own political power they are now eating their own. In many respects, this is a glorious thing. But in another way, it’s a sad testament to a failed party that can’t accept the fact that not every American agrees with them.
We can’t have this much racial animosity in a country with so many races and ethnicities. We’ll tear ourselves apart.
But then, maybe that’s really what Democrats want.
