Moments ago House Democrats voted in Hakeem Jefrees to be their new leader.
Immediately after being elected to replace Nancy Pelosi the RNC wasted no time in pointing out the dangerous misinformation peddled by her replacement, Hakeem Jeffries.
FOX reports, Immediately following his election as House Democratic Leader, the RNC branded him an “election denier.” a “border crisis denier” and an “inflation denier”
Jeffries repeatedly claimed that former President Donald Trump was not legitimately elected in Tweets displayed by the RNC. He became the first African American to hold the post after winning an uncontested election to replace Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., who retired from Congress.
The RNC have made it crystal clear that Jeffries is diametrically opposed to US energy, offensively referring to pro-life Americans as a “threat to this country” and part of a “cult” while stubbornly denying any restrictions on abortion. Furthermore, he blindly defends anti-Semite Democrats frequently found in his caucus. The RNC have laid down their marker that Jeffries must fully accept the need for legitimate oversight of the Biden administration and cease any attempts to dodge those responsibilities. Such actions will not be tolerated.
Recently, Representative Hakeem Jeffries has made some bold accusations towards pro-life Americans and President Trump. From calling pro-life Americans a ‘threat’ to claiming Russia ‘artificially’ put Trump in the White House, Jeffries launched an attack on the legitimacy of the 2016 presidential election. On top of this, he even suggested Republicans are attempting to steal this year’s election too. That’s just the tip of the iceberg though – there are countless unfounded claims being thrown around by Jeffries that have called into doubt the legitimacy of both elections. With such outrageous claims flying about, it’s no wonder that people are questioning how serious we should take his statements – how can anyone be sure if what he’s saying is true?
But wait there’s more – New York Congressman and chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, Hakeem Jeffries, called for “war” amid Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination and maintained that Republicans had stolen two Supreme Court seats. Going further, Jeffries denied the legitimacy of the court and deemed it a “radical, right-wing, extreme Supreme Court.” Adding to the confusion surrounding his comments, he compared it to “ghosts of the confederacy” with one justice being labeled a “hater.” Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, Jeffries also has ties to antisemitism; his uncle Leonard is a notorious antisemite but he still claims to have “great respect” for Ilhan Omar who is no stranger to controversial allegations herself. On top of that he declared fellow Democrats Representatives Tlaib and Omar as “thoughtful colleagues” seeming to condone their behavior before going on to defend Representative Maxine Waters’ speech where she urged people to be “more confrontational” with police officers!
Congressman Jeffries, who is widely considered to have far-left and progressive policies, has drawn criticism and condemnation from both sides of the aisle. He calls for abortion-on-demand with no limits and sees border walls as immoral. Even more shocking and upsetting and it gets worse – he supports amnesty for illegal immigrant gang members and rapists and supposedly fully backs non-citizens voting. His take on Biden’s withdrawal from Afghanistan is even proving divisive, referring to the move as an ‘extraordinary accomplishment.’ Worst still, a week before 18 year old Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted of all charges stemming from the shooting in Kenosha, WI, Jeffries tweeted that he should be “locked up and thrown away the key” – an outrageous and tasteless statement instead of waiting for legal proceedings to unfold.
It’s a classic case of ‘the devil you know is better than the devil you don’t’ now that the DNC has replaced Nancy Pelosi with Hakeem Jeffries. Jeffries has gained notoriety for his far-left, progressive policies, being no friend to conservative voices in the political spectrum. But it seems Jeffries’ opinion matters little to the greater portion of the DNC establishment who took no time in electing him as their new leader, anyway. Jeffries’ tenure is already off to a sour start with Republicans denouncing his dangerous misinformation and leading Jeffries on a collision course of criticism from all sides before he even had a chance to settle into some kind of rhythm. It remains to be seen how Jeffries will perform in light of these blows, but one thing is for sure – he’s more dangerous than Nancy Pelosi ever was.
