Tammy Duckworth will no longer vote for Joe Biden’s straight, white cabinet nominees

March 24, 2021

Democrats might not like to admit this but Joe Biden has a history of saying some blatantly racist things, we talked about a few of the things he said on the campaign trail alone on this blog so I do not think we have to go over them again. I will say however that this did not start on the campaign trail and where there is smoke there is fire.

Now Tammy Duckworth, a Democrat, has noticed that Joe Biden’s cabinet is just a little too full of straight white people, at least in the top positions, and she has decided she will not vote for any candidate who is not a minority or gay. Here is more:

Sen. Tammy Duckworth is pressuring President Joe Biden to step up Asian American and Pacific Islander representation in top positions of the administration, saying Tuesday that she will not vote for any future nominees who are white and straight until the situation is addressed to her satisfaction.

“I am a no vote on the floor, on all non-diversity nominees. You know, I will vote for racial minorities and I will vote for LGBTQ, but anybody else I’m not voting for,” she told reporters.

“I am not going to be voting for any nominee from the White House, other than diversity nominees, probably a no on everyone until they figure this out,” said Duckworth, one of only two Asian Americans in the Senate.

Tammy Duckworth was insulted when the White House said come on man, you have Kamala Harris.

“To be told that, ‘Well, you have Kamala Harris, we’re very proud of her, you don’t need anybody else’ is insulting,” said Duckworth.

So she is no longer looking at qualifications, she will be judging people by the color of their skin and maybe I am old fashioned but that sounds like the definition of racism to me.
