Yesterday, the issue was concern over letting Carolyn Maloney replace Edolphus Towns on the House oversight committee, a move which would be practical and prudent from a political standpoint, but unacceptable from a racial/victim class standpoint - you simply can't have a "B" level victim (a woman) replace an "A" level victim (a black man), regardless of competence or expertise. And when the Democrats asked Rep. Maloney if she would allow a less senior black man to pass over her to become their ranking committee member, Maloney said no, in a hurry.
I said this crack could become a chasm. Feel the ground shaking? That's the ground shifting under the Democrat's feet, as another black congressman tries to put another white woman in her place:
Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) warned Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) of "disloyalty" to President Obama if she should seek to distance herself from the White House in her re-election campaign.
Cleaver, who's seen as the likely next leader of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), cautioned the centrist senator of distancing herself from Obama, the way many endangered incumbents had done in the closing weeks of the 2012 election.
“Any attempt to extricate herself from him will be an act of disloyalty,” Cleaver told McClatchy in a piece profiling McCaskill's re-election campaign. “She will not do that at all.”
Sounds like a threat. Not that Cleaver has much to worry about, as McCaskill voted in favor of Obamacare and the stimulus bill, both roundly hated by Claire's fellow Missourians. Where can she go?
Why the pre-emptive charge of treason? Simple - Cleaver wants McCaskill to stay on the plantation, but to know her place - be loyal to the master in the Big White House, and stay behind him (Cleaver) on line, forever, if he deems it necessary.
Amazing - if the Democrats lose the female vote, they are done as a political force. And yet any woman who shows any sign of disagreeing with their agenda, whether inside their tent or out, is ruthlessly demonized (as a nut or a slut, or perhaps now as a traitor).
Seems as if their ideology holds a vice grip on reality. Reminds me of the way a certain president governs, by the way. Explains the state of the country. Explains the state of his party...
