Lawmakers Deliver Low Blows on Capitol Hill

Amid a fight over voting legislation, lawmakers are hurling personal attacks on Capitol Hill, with Democrats lashing out at Republicans with racially charged criticisms.

“So today, if they don’t vote — that’s evil. And we want America to know that they are cooperating with evil,” said Rep. Joyce Beatty (D-OH), chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC).

Beatty’s remarks came after leading about 20 Black Caucus members on a walk from the House’s Lincoln Room to the Senate to demand passage of voting legislation.

As some media outlets blame centrist Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.VA) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) for blocking changes to filibuster rules, some Democrats are pointing the finger across the aisle.

“We see Republicans trying to undermine the right of citizens to vote, and that’s why it’s not passing,” House Minority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) told reporters.

Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (N.Y.), head of the House Democratic Caucus, suggested that the GOP opposes these bills because they don’t want another Black president after Barack Obama’s 2008 victory.

“What happened to the modern day Republican Party? Was it the election that took place in 2008? Did that disturb you? Did that throw you off? Were you confused by that, still trying to figure out how it occurred?” Jeffries told reporters.

“What happened to the modern day Republican Party? It’s a cult right now. Is it because the cult leader has told you to oppose voting rights?”

    Wow, these scum democrats love to call out the Republicans for the exact thing they are guilty of doing themselves. Oh, and of course everyone but democrats are racist. The biggest racist of all are black politicians and yes, it all really got rolling with none other than Obummer during his time in the White House. In fact, he is still doing his best to divide the country by race.

    1. Dennis says:

      The Communist Democrat Party has gone over the edge. The 2020 elections were a sham! Mail in ballots. Ballot harvesting.! Illegal aliens voting! Dead voters! Where is the honesty in that Black Caucus? The ONLY legal and ethical way to vote is with a state issued ID.

    Ban the Democrat Party and arrest all its leaders, past leaders and criminal election officials.
