Skip to comments.Pelosi creates leadership position for Barbara Lee (white privilege)
Posted on 12/05/2018 2:55:09 AM PST by Libloather
Rep. Barbara Lee will be joining the House Democratic leadership team, filling a key void for the caucus after its elections earlier this week left the group without a woman of color in the top ranks.
Lee is expected to fill a new position being created by Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to oversee the Steering and Policy Committee, the panel that determines committee assignments for Democrats. Pelosis decision expands leadership of the panel from two co-chairs to three.
The decision to elevate Lee comes as a group of House Democrats, disappointed by both Lees narrow loss in the race for caucus chair earlier this week and that lack of a woman of color in leadership, was planning to ask Pelosi to do just that.

Mumbles picks her posse.
So....my interpretation of the caucus vote is that the racist Democrats (the party of Jim Crow and the KKK) won’t give a real position of power to a black woman, so Speaker-to-be Pelosi is crating a token seat for Representative Lee.
Sheeeeeeit! I’d sure hate to be a democrat.
Republicans must fight back..........because power-mad desperate Democrats wont accept the results of elections.....
As FReeper KNARF insightfully posted:
I haven't seen "the Democrat party" as a political arm in a long time. All we've been subjected to is gauntlet
after gauntlet thrown down.......they're an aggressive army challenging a peaceful nation....a nation they despise.
When Republicans lose, they concede graciously, acknowledging the election is over.
When Democrats lose, in their fervid minds, the election is NOT over ........not until a Democrat holds the seat.
Democrats abandoned their role in the two-party system of checks and balances.
Democrats have morphed into an invading army......trailed by a bunch of camp followers.
I hope Democrats continue on their vengeful course of spouting unmitigated hatred of Trump and his policies....
b/c we, the people are taking note. The lefties are too stupid to realize every word against Trump is a slap in the face to voters.
They are about to get a big wrench thrown into the works. What they plan is in vain.
I get it - she's black. But surely there are other blacks in Congress with IQs above 40....
Dont bet good money on that.
Its called a participation prize.
There are, but they are Republicans.
If Lee were actually a leader, she would have deposed Nanzi and taken her job.
But why not Maxipad Waters, or Sheila Jackass Lee? All of the positions for certified idiots already taken?
So Pelosi has a token.
