It is not an exaggeration to suggest that the Democrats have gone stark raving mad and should be considered a hate group for their post-election vomiting of bile against President Trump.
But not all crazies are equal because some are just crazier than others and the biggest kooks, haters and cranks are cloistered together in the Congressional Black Caucus. This self-segregating gaggle of racist goons has taken the idea that Barack Obama was term-limited by the 22nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution very personally, so much so that they have poured their energies into a fanatical jihad to reverse the results of the election and throw Trump out of office even if it would disenfranchise nearly 63 million Americans.
One of the leaders of the pack is Rep. Al Green of Texas whose multiple attempts to introduce articles of impeachment have been snuffed out but he continues to try. The former president of the Houston chapter of the NAACP is now mightily pissed off at Nancy Pelosi who has been forced to dial down the impeachment rhetoric with an election in less than six months and the “blue wave” in serious jeopardy but like billionaire greenie gooney bird Tom Steyer, the CBC has no use for the democratic process.
Congressman Green has taken his grievances to his hometown newspaper to inveigh against Pelosi for betraying him and the angry rabble of the CBC.

Via The Houston Chronicle “Houston Rep. Al Green stands by impeachment, accuses Pelosi of ‘trivializing’ Trump ‘bigotry'”:
Green, who has tried three times to impeach Trump on the House floor, accused his conference leader of trivializing what he sees as the president’s offensive remarks toward women and minorities.
“It is regrettable that Leader Pelosi would trivialize President Trump’s hateful discrimination against Jews, Latinos, Blacks, Women, and the LGBTQ community by reducing the president’s harmful bigotry to his ‘being a jerk,”’ Green said in a statement Monday. ”Love for my country will not permit me to allow the president’s bigotry to be trivialized and minimized.”
The caveman-looking Green is not only giving Maxine Waters a run for her money as the most butt-ugly member of Congress but his understanding of what the Constitution defines as impeachable offenses is so abysmal that he is either dumber than a bucket of rocks or just doesn’t care. Being offended by something that the president says just doesn’t meet the bar for impeachment and Green acts like he is some tribal warlord ruling a third world shithole instead of an elected official. When you take to the oath to uphold the Constitution, you had better at least have a passing familiarity with the document.
Roll Call provides additional detail:
In Dallas on Friday, Pelosi said initiating impeachment proceedings against Trump if Democrats retake control of the House after the 2018 midterms would be “a gift to Republicans.”
Pelosi specifically singled out Green for undermining party unity with his calls for impeachment.
“We have elections,” Pelosi said. “Go vote if it’s a policy thing and a behavior thing.”
“I don’t know if you can get impeached for being a jerk, but if we did, this guy would be long gone,” the California Democrat continued. “But that’s not unifying.”
Those are fighting words for Green who nurtures grudges and may just be first in line to club Pelosi like a baby seal if the Dems don’t win back the House in November.
