There, I’ve said it, “Maxine Waters is an Ugly American Racist.” …


Every time I hear Maxine Waters, it is all about how corrupt America is; how racist America is; and how America keeps victimizing her people. Her people? You mean her wealthy neighbors who live next to her $4 million mansion in L.A'. exclusive Hancock Park area or those who actually live in her South Central district where she is registered to vote?

With Waters, everything is about victimhood, in her case, double victimhood as a black woman. She would have triple victimhood, but for the fact that she and her family have somehow gotten rich on her service as a Member of Congress. You heard nothing about victimhood when she requested special consideration for her husband’s bank that was technically insolvent and in desperate need of TARP (Troubled Asset Relief Program) funds. Something that landed her in front of the feckless House “Ethics” Committee which spent years before they dismissed the case.

Her latest outrage came at a House of Representatives debate over the bi-partisan repeal of anti-discrimination policies affecting auto lenders. The subject was not anti-discrimination policies per se, but curtailing the CFPB (Consumer Financial Protection Bureau) from over-reach, attempting a backdoor maneuver to regulate automobile dealers and lenders when Congress explicitly exempted auto dealers from the CFPB’s oversight.

In the course of the debate, Mike Kelley (R-PA) had the audacity to say, “We are trying to make sure we are making America great every day in every way and the best way to do that is to stop stalking about discrimination and start talking about the nation.”

And off she went … “Mr. Kelly, please do not leave. Because I want you to know that I am more offended as an African American woman than you will ever be. And this business about making America great again, it is your president that’s dividing this country.

Responding to an admonishment to stick to House Rules by Floor Chairman Tom McClintock (R-CA), “I don’t appreciate that you did not interrupt him when he was making those outrageous remarks about him knowing more about discrimination than I know about discrimination,” Waters shouted. “I resent that and I resent the remark about making America great again.” “He’s [Kelley] down here making a speech for this dishonorable president of the United States of America.”   <Source>

Waters demands respect but has no problem with flaunting House Rules or openly disparaging and denigrating the President of the United States. As for subject-matter knowledge, Kelley ran an extensive auto dealership operation before going into politics. As opposed to Waters who appears to know more and more about less and less until she knows everything about nothing.

Bottom line …

I believe Booker T. Washington said it best.


Until the racist demagogues who see everything through the prism of class, race, and gender are defeated at the polls by well-informed citizens, we are screwed.
