On Wednesday, the House Democrats elected Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), who has often labeled conservatives as racists, to replace Nancy Pelosi, who had headed the party for decades and served as speaker while her party was in the majority.
Representative Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) responded to Jeffries’ radical rhetoric by saying, “If this isn’t proof that the Democrat Party has entirely gone from American ideals of neutrally applied justice and the right of self-defense, then I don’t know what is.” Among many such examples, consider Jeffries’ statement that we should “Lock him up and toss away the key” about Kyle Rittenhouse.
In a July 2021 tweet, Jeffries criticized Republican efforts to restore election integrity across the country, calling them racist and noting that “the Civil War ended in 1865, and the racists lost.” Pelosi had appointed Jeffries as one of seven impeachment managers in the Senate impeachment trial of former President Trump. If this is the case, keep going.
Twittering in response, Crenshaw made it clear that it was the Democrats, not the Republicans, who had a racist past. After hearing this, he said, “You’re right; the Democrats did lose.”
When asked by the host of Spectrum News NY1, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries stated his skepticism regarding President Biden’s declaration that voter ID and enhanced control of mail-in ballots represented “the most significant test of our democracy since the Civil War.”
And Jeffries said, “He’s not exaggerating at all.” Sadly, the Republican Party is currently adopting vote suppression techniques to obtain power, even though passing the Voting Rights Act in 1965 seemed to end this dispute in the United States.
Jeffries’s use of the term “voter suppression epidemic” to describe the Republican Party’s efforts to suppress the vote gave the impression that they were driven by racist hate over Obama’s triumph.
In February of that year (2022), Jeffries cast doubt on the qualifications of the conservative Supreme Court judges.
He tweeted, “Supreme Court majority has no validity. There are still “Confederate ghosts” in the modern world.”
Following September’s events, in which Florida Governor Ron DeSantis transported 50 illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard, Jeffries criticized DeSantis and Texas Governor Greg Abbott, both Republicans, for “behaving like human traffickers.”
Former congressman turned Florida governor Ron DeSantis fired back at Joe Biden, adding that illegal immigrants had been moved to different parts of the country during his tenure.
When asked if he had heard anything from the passengers when Biden was carrying them through the fruited plain at night, DeSantis said he hadn’t.
