I listened to the Elijah Cummings, the chair of the Congressional Black Caucus last night go on about how the CBC is the “conscience of the Congress” and “the country.”
I’m sorry, but this is just so much garbage and it only serves to highlight the arrogance and delusions of the black left today. There isn’t a single issue — including Civil Rights — that I look to the CBC for moral authority on. There may be individuals within it who have some gravitas, but as a group they’re little more than a leftwing cabal of patronage seeking leftwingers eager to call their opponents on almost every public policy issue “racists.” It takes a lot of chuztpah for anybody to claim for themselves the role of “conscience” for other people. The notion that John Conyers is someone anybody should defer to because of his moral stature is laughable.
