Democrat Clyburn On Coronavirus Bill: ‘This Is A Tremendous Opportunity To Restructure Things To Fit Our Vision’

(Breitbart) – House Majority Whip Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) reportedly told Democrats on a conference call last week that the party should exploit the coronavirus stimulus: “This is a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision.”

Clyburn’s statement, reported by The Hill, which cited a source on a “conference call featuring more than 200 members of the House Democratic caucus” last Thursday, recalls an infamous statement by Rahm Emanuel, the incoming chief of staff to President-elect Barack Obama during the global financial crisis, who told the Wall Street Journal:

“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste … This crisis provides the opportunity for us to do things that you could not do before.”

The quote became relevant again Sunday night into Monday morning, as Democrats blocked an effort to pass an emergency stimulus, reportedly insisting on changes to suit favored social interests.

Last Sunday night, Clyburn compared President Donald Trump to Nazi dictator and mass murderer Adolf Hitler, telling Axios that Trump could exploit current political circumstances to emulate Hitler’s seizure of power.

Clyburn’s endorsement in South Carolina was considered crucial in winning the state for former Vice President Joe Biden, setting up a cascade of endorsements that saw him sweep most of the next several Democratic primaries.


  1. “This is a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision.” SHADES OF RAHM RAHMBO DEADFISH EMANUEL! Subversive rhetoric at its absolute best! Only a Democrat(s) can get away with something like that! The rest of us would be locked up and the key thrown away! Let’s just see where this goes from here.

  2. There lies the problem. It is with your twisted thinking that it’s all about your vision for America. Well guess what Budd it’s We The People you are serving not yourself and your cronies. You work for the American people so do your job and pass the stimulus bill with ZERO pet projects buried in them or you are fired. Get to work.

  3. President Trump and Senator McConnell, do not give in to a single demand by the damn democrats and do not say anything else other than the Democrats are showing they do not care for the citizens of our country. They are trying to placate their boss Soros and do the job he hired them to. To sow discord in our country and try to bring our country down in order to bring in their dictatorship over us. Keep nailing them on it every single second.Clyburn, your just another smelly turd in the democrat party.

  4. The only vision today’s progressive liberal trash have is another mans income and assets folks .
