Democratic House Minority Leader challenger accused of sexism

November 21, 2016

  After the disastrous (from the Democratic perspective) Presidential election there are many Democrats who feel a change in direction and leadership is in order. One of those Democrats is Tim Ryan; he is challenging Nancy Pelosi for House Minority Leader. 

  However Tim Ryan is a man and Nancy Pelosi is a woman so he could not possibly think a change in direction or leadership is what is best for the party, he must be challenging the Minority Leader because he is a sexist and believes a man can do a better job. At least that is what ThinkProgess is claiming.

  Here it is:

Rep. Tim Ryan’s challenge of the female Democratic minority leader, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, has ignited charges of sexism.

“This thing where an obscure male backbencher thinks he deserves to replace the most accomplished woman in Congress is how sexism works,” said Ian Millhiser, justice editor at ThinkProgress, a website affiliated with the Clinton-linked Center for American Progress.

“I’m genuinely curious if anyone can argue why Tim Ryan should replace Pelosi other than ‘she was in the job when something bad happened,’” Millhiser added.

  Of course this is just plain silly but this is the same type of unsubstantiated claims the left has been firing at the right for many years now so it is hard to feel sorry for him. Let us all join in in welcoming Tim Ryan to the club. How can we not revel in seeing the left turn on their own after the way they have attacked us all these years?

  The sad part in all of this is that the left has cried wolf so many times in the past that people are no longer taking it seriously and when a real instance of sexism or racism rears its ugly head nobody is going to believe them.

    Both the R’s and D’s don’t get what is happening in the U.S. and the world. Both Ryan and Pelosi should have stepped down without being asked. Since they are not honorable people they should be removed from their positions. This is why term limits and other reforms are necessary. The British Parliament has this one good point when the leader of the party loses a major issue they step aside or recieve a vote of no confidenc.

    Pelosi backed Hillary and she lost. Time to move on.

      I agree, I think leadership needs to be changed on both sides of the aisle. The Republican leadership seems to be reading this victory as proof the voters are okay with them but we are mistaken.

    Within the world of the Democrats, that’s what passes for logic.

    It’s not just that Pelosi was there when something bad happened, she was a lot of the cause of it’s happening! Go back to the beginning when she said “We have to pass the bill to find out what’s in the bill.” and then marched around with that over sized gavel. That was a hint there was going to be a problem.

      Don’t you just love that line about just being there when it happened? As if she as a leader had nothing to do with it.

    Their playing cards: sexism, sexist, racism, facist, etc. Boy it sure would be nice to see Pelosi gone, Reid too! Maybe the ‘rubble’ of the Machine of America starting up again will scare them out! More sanity and less illusion, delusion and insanity. 👍
    Meanwhile this explains alot of the mindset that’s so ‘out there’ and ‘being gone’: The Cult Of Clinton.
    ‘If you want to see politics based on emotionalism over reason and a borderline-religious devotion to an iconic figure, forget the Trump Army; look instead to the Cult of Clinton.’

      At least Reid is gone from the Senate but sadly I don’t think we have heard the last from him.
