Maxine Waters is the Democratic Representative from California’s 43rd District and perhaps the second most-deranged member of Congress after Nancy Pelosi. Naturally, she is a liberal like Pelosi, and a major critic of the Donald (as well as his Republican predecessors in the White House). In fact, she recently declared that she was sent by God to stop Trump. Really? She has been in Congress since 1991, long before the Donald decided to enter the political arena. So it is unlikely that God put her in Congress to stop the efforts of the Trump Administration.
But Waters’ recent remarks were just the latest absurd comments which came out of her mouth. Here is a list of her other quotes.
• While addressing a crowd in August 2011, most of whom were wearing SEIU (Services Employees International Union) t-shirts: “I am not afraid of anybody. This is a tough game. You can’t be intimidated. You can’t be frightened. And as far as I’m concerned, the Tea Party can go straight to hell. And I intend to help them get there.”
So how exactly is she going to help Tea Party members get to hell? Did she plan to have Tea Party members assassinated? Was she thinking God sent her to stop the Tea Party, despite being in Congress long before the Tea Party came along?
• While lecturing oil company executives during a Congressional hearing in 2008: “Guess what this liberal would be all about? This liberal would be about socializing … uh, umm. … Would be about, basically, taking over, and the government running all of your companies.”
So she thinks that it would be best for the government to take over the oil companies? I believe Venezuela tried the same thing, and look what happened there.
• During the L.A. riots in 1992: “If you call it a riot, it sounds like it was just a bunch of crazy people who went out and did bad things for no reason. I maintain it was somewhat understandable, if not acceptable. So I call it a rebellion.”
It was a riot, not a rebellion. A rebellion is an act or state of armed resistance to one’s government, or a defiance of or opposition to any kind of authority or control (as defined in the fourth edition of Webster’s New World Dictionary). The closest the L.A. Riots ever came to being a rebellion would be the targeting of law enforcement who were attempting to restore order. But it was not any type of resistance, defiance, or opposition to the state or local authorities.
Thus, whereas Nancy Pelosi is a deranged lunatic, Maxine Waters is a deranged old hag.
