It’s On: White Democrat Steny Hoyer Trying to Oppress a Victimized Minority

Posted on | November 8, 2010 | 9 Comments

The victimized minority in this case being House Democrats:

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) is intensifying his push to capture the No. 2 post in the reshaped Democratic hierarchy, claiming new momentum in his clash with Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.).
“Hoyer is going to win,” a source close to the majority leader told The Hill on Sunday. . . .
The battle between Hoyer and Clyburn was created Friday when Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced she would run for Democratic leader despite her party’s blowout defeat in the midterm elections. Democrats will lose one leadership position in the minority, and because all of Pelosi’s top lieutenants want to keep their jobs, Hoyer is trying to avoid being squeezed out. . . .
Clyburn supporters include senior members of the Congressional Black Caucus as well as Rep. Luis Gutierrez (Ill.), the chamber’s most prominent Hispanic lawmaker. . . .
Despite the behind-the-scenes jousting, both sides are trying to keep the race from becoming bitter or negative.

No! We want it to become as bitter and negative as possible!

C’mon, Clyburn supporters: Steny is trying to keep you in the back of the bus of the Democratic caucus! Don’t let him get away with it!

You go call Al Sharpton. I’ll pop the popcorn.
