Here’s a prime example of civility and decency in our public discourse by an elected representative. Oh, wait. No, it isn’t.
It’s the exact opposite of that.
But then, would you expect anything better than that from Maxine ‘Impeach 45!’ Waters (D-CA)?
How this woman can still get elected is beyond comprehension.
ClashDaily has been covering the antics of the beloved #Resistance hero, ‘Auntie’ Maxine for a loooong time:
Contained in those (and many more articles) are critiques on Rep. Waters and her almost non-existent record in Congress, her corruption, her blatant racism, her constant showboating, and her seeming inability to string two logical and coherent thoughts together.
So, there is no need to do that here.
Instead, we’ll jump right in and show how confident this woman is that she’s going to be the end of the Trump administration.
During her acceptance speech, she said that she’s first going to ‘knock off’ Trump and then do the same to Pence.
Here’s a partial transcript of her comments:
There are those who say that we shouldn’t talk about impeachment.
And when Al Green comes up here, you are going to find out who presented the first resolution for impeachment in the House of Representatives.
There are those who say, ‘Well, what if we get rid of him? Then we’ve got that Vice President and he will be worse.’
I said, ‘Knock off the first one and then go after the second one.’ (Applause)
We have the power. We have the numbers. But we have to understand our power and we’ve got to use our power.
Not only do we all have individual power, but just think about the readers that you have, the people who look forward to getting your newspapers, the people who are looking to see if their picture is going to be in it or their child’s picture is going to be in it, or are you going to tell them something about what is going on nationally with some of the people that you have who are your columnists in your newspapers. Well, that’s all power. Let’s use it.
Let’s have this president understand, in ways that we have not done before, that we are the patriots of this country.
We’re the ones who stood by this country no matter what has happened to us, no matter that this country has not always embraced us.
We fought in the wars, came home and oftentimes didn’t have a house to live in and didn’t have a job.
But we stayed with America. We fought for the democracy. We believed in the Constitution.
All the folks on the other side of the aisle who claim to be such patriots, they’re scared of this president.
They won’t stand up to him. They’re intimidated by him.
They won’t denounce some of the terrible things that he’s doing and the fact that he’s alienated all of our allies.
Watch ‘Mad’ Maxine’s rambling speech:
Can you imagine the outrage if she had an ‘R’ after her name?
It would be headline news for 6 weeks that a high-profile GOP member of Congress was calling for violence against the President and the Vice President.
This isn’t her first time doing such a thing, and she’s called for the harassment of Trump administration officials at gas stations, grocery stores, restaurants — anywhere in public.
I’m sure if the shoe was on the other foot she’d cry racism-sexism-bigotry-discrimination-hate-speech.
Doesn’t it just speak volumes that this one of the key leaders in the opposition to President Trump?
But hey, she’s just fulfilling her ‘calling from God’ — or something.
Keep talking, ‘Auntie’ Maxine — the midterms are just around the corner.
