California Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters, known for her inane “legislative performance art,” claimed during a shrill rant on the congressional floor this week that black voters such as herself are more patriotic than those who supported President Donald Trump.
“When we fight against this president, and we point out how dangerous he is for this society and for this country, we’re fighting for the democracy,” Waters said. “We’re fighting for America. We’re saying to those who say they’re patriotic but they’ve turned a blind eye to the destruction that he’s about to cause this country:
“‘You’re not nearly as patriotic as we are.’”
Listen to her full rant below, if you can stand it:
While trying to compare the patriotism of all black voters with that of Trump supporters would just be silly, if not also racist, it was certainly possible to draw a contrast between what Rep. Waters believes and the Trump voters she clearly viewed as her real enemy.
For starters, did you know that she had a soft spot in her heart for late Cuban dictator and mass murderer Fidel Castro? “Viva Fidel!” she proudly chanted in 2000 after the dictator spoke at a church in Harlem, according to Townhall.
Most Trump voters don’t support the Cuban dictatorship.
It appears Waters also has an affinity for cop killers. After she voted in favor of a resolution calling for the extradition of the cop killer known as Assata Shakur from Cuba in 1998, she wrote an apology letter to Castro claiming essentially that she had not realized Shakur — whose real name was Joanne Chesimard — was a beloved cop kiler.
“I, and some of the Members of the Congressional Black Caucus, mistakenly voted for House Concurrent Resolution 254 which called on the Government of Cuba to extradite to the United States Joanne Chesimard and all other individuals who have fled the United States from political persecution and received political asylum in Cuba,” she wrote.
“Joanne Chesimard was the birth name of a political activist known to most Members of the Congressional Black Caucus as Assata Shakur. For the record, I am opposed to the resolution. I unequivocally stated that a mistake was made and I would have voted against the legislation.”
Most Trump voters take a dim view of cop killers (to put it mildly).
As noted by The Daily Wire, Waters also had a history of accusing the CIA of supplying inner city blacks with crack cocaine, advocating for the nationalization of oil companies (which was the same thing that destroyed Venezuela) and taking part in the sort of shady deals that would even make the Rev. Al Sharpton, the shadiest of them all, cringe.
Most Trump voters don’t think much of Al Sharpton, either.
Truth be told, if Waters wants to go at it with unpatriotic sleazes who prioritize their own interests and ideology over the well-being of the whole nation, she would be better off yelling at the mirror than ranting about Trump supporters.
