Republican: The Party of the Ignorant and Stupid


quote:

After some confusion about the specifics of time travel, U.S. Representative Yvette Clarke told Stephen Colbert last night that if she could go back to her Brooklyn district in 1898, she would tell those Brooklynites, "Set me free!" When Colbert asked innocently, "From?" Clarke said, "Slavery," perhaps confusing her major U.S. history dates. "Slavery. Really? I didn't realize there was slavery in Brooklyn in 1898," Colbert replied, giving her a chance. But nope: "I'm pretty sure there was." (There wasn't.)

The host pressed forward, hinting, "It sounds like a horrible part of the United States that kept slavery going until 1898," and asked, "Who would be enslaving you in 1898 in New York?" She said the Dutch, to which Colbert quipped, as he does, "Those sneaky Dutch bastards."

"Exactly," said Clarke. Exactly.

Not quite as good as another Democrat Congressperson believing that Guam might tip over, but still quality. I'm not a fan of the Evangelical influence in the Republican Party, which I think is exaggerated by many, but let's not forget how many of the most stupid members are Democrats.

So if you equate this one woman to the entire Republican party, then it is 100% accurate to do the same with the democrats?

Or is it just unfair if you call out democrats on their idiocy.

Doesn't matter. If a dem simply states it, it is the truth, hence Elizabeth Warren is a Native American and in 1898 Brooklyn, slavery was rampant.

The most depressing thing about this is not the letter behind her name but the fact that she is an elected leader in this country.

A majority of people thought that this was their best option for governance.

Truly depressing...

The democratic party is led by a man who said he visited all 57 states and we all know some of the famous quotes by the vp.

Sort of telling how far Colbert bent over backwards to try to let her off the hook multiple times.

United States Representative Yvette D. Clarke is a Brooklyn native whose roots are firmly planted in her Jamaican heritage. A product of the New York City Public School System, Rep. Clarke received a scholarship to Oberlin College and was a recipient of the prestigious APPAH/Sloan Fellowship in Public Policy and Policy Analysis.

Rep. Clarke was first elected to Congress in November 2006 and represents the 11th Congressional District which includes the communities of Brownsville, Crown Heights, East Flatbush, Flatbush, Windsor Terrace, Borough Park, Sunset Park, Carroll Gardens, Kensington, Park Slope, Prospect Heights, Prospect-Lefferts Gardens and Prospect Park.

Prior to being elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, Rep. Clarke served on the New York City Council representing the 40th District in Brooklyn. She succeeded her pioneering mother, former City Council Member Una S. T. Clarke, making them the first mother-daughter succession in the history of the Council.

As the Congressional Representative of the 11th district, she is committed to continuing the district's legacy of excellence as set forth by the late Honorable Shirley Chisholm, the first African American woman and Caribbean American elected to Congress. As an activist, a community organizer and now as a legislator, Rep. Clarke’s boldness, compassion and love for humanity has allowed her to become an effective leader and an outspoken advocate on numerous issues of great importance to her constituents.

Currently in the 112th Congress, Rep. Clarke sits on the House Committee on Homeland Security and House Committee on Small Business.
In the 111th Congress, Rep. Clarke sat on several committees including the House Education and Labor Committee, the House Homeland Security Committee and the House Small Business Committee.

Just two years in office, Rep. Clarke was appointed Chairwoman of the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Emerging Threats, Cybersecurity and Science and Technology for the 111th Congress. Under her leadership, this Committee will exercise its oversight jurisdiction on a variety of issues, including cybersecurity, biodefense, pandemic influenza preparedness, nuclear detection, mitigating radiological attacks, agro-terrorism, and research and development within the Department of Homeland Security.

Known in the community for speaking truth to power, she is often called the “authentic voice of Brooklyn.” Rep. Clarke also plans on using this voice to make the needs of her community a priority within the 112th Congress as the newly appointed Secretary for the Congressional Black Caucus and the Senior Whip for the Democratic Caucus. The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Inc., (CBCF) also recently welcomed Rep. Yvette D. Clarke of New York to its Board of Directors.

An unwavering champion for her native Brooklyn, she has worked with non-profit organizations, local community groups and appropriators to secure millions of dollars in essential federal support for the district. As a result, major institutions received funds, including the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the Brooklyn Public Library, the Brooklyn Children’s Museum, the Prospect Park Alliance and the New York State Department of Transportation (DOT).

As a testament to what Representative Clarke has accomplished in her first term, she received an “A” rating from the Drum Major Institute, TheMiddleClass.org, and 100% ratings by Peace Action, The Brady Campaign and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). She was also named After-School Hero by The After-School Corporation for her work on the House Education and Labor Committee. In May 2009, Rep. Clarke was also presented with an honorary Doctorate Law Degree from St. Francis College.

Rep. Clarke currently resides in the neighborhood where she grew up, in the Flatbush section of Brooklyn.
