Earlier in the week, House Democrats voted unanimously to make New York Congressman Hakeem Jeffries their new party leader, replacing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, making this the first time in almost 20 years she’s not occupied the position. Oh, but don’t worry folks. Pelosi will still be a regular member of the House, so we’re not completely rid of her yet.
While we all assumed that Jeffries would be pretty bad, seeing as he’s a diehard liberal and all, it seems that he might actually be worse than we previously thought.

Then again, what should we have expected? There’s no way the left would have voted in a moderate to take up the lead spot in the party. No, modern-day Democrats are sold on moving further and further to the left, dedicating themselves to the mission of dismantling the America we know and love, the beacon of freedom to the entire world, and rebuilding it according to the blueprint left behind by Karl Marx.
According to the Daily Caller, “Jeffries will serve as House Minority Leader in the 118th Congress, while Massachusetts Rep. Katherine Clark was elected Minority Whip. California Rep. Pete Aguilar will serve as Caucus Chair. While the former top two Democrats, Pelosi and Maryland Rep. Steny Hoyer, will remain in Congress, they will not serve in leadership. Former number three, James Clyburn of South Carolina, is running against Rhode Island Rep. David Cicilline for Assistant Democratic Leader, the number four leadership position.”

“It’s a solemn responsibility that we are all inheriting,” Jeffries stated Tuesday just before the vote. “And the best thing that we can do as a result of the seriousness and solemnity of the moment is lean in hard and do the best damn job that we can for the people.”
Known as the “New Three,” Jeffries, along with Clark and Aguilar, served in the fourth, fifth, and sixth-ranking leadership positions during the 117th Congress. Speculation that Jeffries would be the pick to lead the party started swirling back in the early part of the 117th Congress as Pelosi stated in 2018 she would serve no more than two terms as the leader.
In their first press conference, the New Three tossed around accusations that the GOP kowtowed to extremists. This is a rather rich charge coming from folks who are supportive of a group like Black Lives Matter that burned down communities all over the country in the name of racial equality.
“What we’re fighting against is this MAGA extremism,” Aguilar went on to say. “There’s folks who, on the other side of the aisle, go to white nationalist conferences, come from the far right corners of the country.”
This whole “MAGA extremism” nonsense is just another fake boogeyman the left uses to justify attempts to control the flow of information and silence anyone with an alternative view that does not line up with progressive ideology. There’s no room for opposing belief systems in the delusional utopia the Democrats think they can build in this country.
