HEY SCHUMER: Remember When Democrats REFUSED to Seat This Black Senator?
The Democrats think they are slick.
Now that the Democrat scoundrels got their temporary Senate victory, they want to delay the vote on the tax bill.
Check out Schumer’s plea to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. He demands that McConnell delay the vote, until Doug Jones joins the Senate.
Sen. Schumer calls for delay in tax vote until Doug Jones is sworn in: "It would be wrong for Senate Republicans to jam through this tax bill without giving the newly-elected senator from Alabama the opportunity to cast his vote." https://t.co/QeyhXhcpAo pic.twitter.com/xJ8oVr85fN

“It would be wrong for Senate Republicans to jam through this tax bill without giving the duly elected senator from Alabama a chance to cast his vote,”
Wrong? How did Obama put it, “That’s what elections are for!”
McConnell would be a fool to do this. He’s already on suicide watch after the Moore defeat. This would be the end for him.
Regardless, what I can’t believe is the nerve of Schumer. McConnell is under no obligation to do this. Frankly, you can bet your sweet ass that Schumer wouldn’t do this for McConnell.
“Our hope is that [Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell will do the right thing,” Schumer said.
Pocahontas, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) also chimed in. She echoed Schumer’s comments, asking McConnell (R-Ky.) to seat Jones “without any delay.”
I call on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to listen to the people of Alabama and seat @GDouglasJones without any delay.

I’d suggest that Schumer remember history.
The Democrat-controlled Senate refused to seat a black Senator from Illinois:
Senate Democrats may not have the constitutional authority to reject Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s choice to fill President-elect Barack Obama’s vacated Senate seat, election law experts told ABC News.
“Under these circumstances, anyone appointed by Gov. Blagojevich cannot be an effective representative of the people of Illinois and, as we have said, will not be seated by the Democratic Caucus,” the Democratic leadership said in a statement.
Earlier this month, all 50 members of the Senate Democratic Caucus called on Blagojevich to step down and not to make an appointment to fill the seat. Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White also said today that he would refuse to certify Burris’ selection.
So the entire Senate didn’t want Roland Burris. But it was mostly Harry Reid and Barack Obama who objected the loudest.
We wrote “House Negroes, But no Senate Negroes” of Harry Reid’s and Obama’s conspiracy against Roland Burris at the time:
Outside of being a liberal, Burris is certainly qualified for the job. Juris Doctorate from Howard. And as Comptroller of Illinois from 1979 to 1991, Burris was the first Black elected to a statewide office in Illinois. Burris would later serve as Attorney General for Illinois from 1991 to 1995, and then run a successful consulting company, which he still owns today.
Impressive credentials, particularly when you consider his record in comparison to say, Caroline Kennedy, or even…yes Barack “I’m Now Half-White” Obama.
So if you were forced to select a liberal for the senate (and we are), surely this liberal is better than most. But the Pied Piper of Racist Pimping ain’t having it.
Is Obama finally embracing his White heritage in partnering with Harry Reid to block the nomination of Burris, a “qualified” full-Black man? Perhaps he is jealous that Burris actually has a track record? Maybe Burris’ role as COO for Operation PUSH and his ties to Jesse Jackson disturbs Obama? As a Jackson operative, Burris could help Jackson deliver on that threat to “cut his [Obama’s] nuts off], as I documented in Black on Black Crime?
Burris had unsuccessful runs for the senate, governor, and mayor of Illinois, and here he is at the cusp of a senate appointment, an appointment over which Obama has no influence?
Maybe Obama feels that if Burris can’t rig an election to win it, then he doesn’t deserve a senate seat? He would have a point…
As for Harry “Bull Connor” Reid, I have suspected that he, like most Democrats is simply invoking his rights as a card-carrying racist. Let’s not forget that Democrats have sponsored every piece of legislation to prevent Blacks from voting and to dehumanize Black people in the history of America.
So Reid’s agenda is clear to this Black man: Blacks can be “House Negros”, but not “Senate Negros”. At least not full Blacks.
So this is just more of the Democrats’ racist agenda surfacing, in this writer’s humble opinion. “Bull” Reid can handle the senate being 0.5% Black, but damnit if he will allow it to go to 1% Black. There have only been 2.5 Blacks in the senate since Reconstruction. Hmmm…
So let’s see how Chuck Schumer handles wanting to seat the white Senator so quickly.
Because they certainly didn’t offer that courtesy to Roland Burris. Too bad they didn’t need his vote to pass legislation, or they could have put that black man to work.
