Maxine Waters Plays Race Card (For The Millionth Time)

When Democrats have no salient argument to make in their defense, they resort to calls of racism, sexism – ‘isms’ in general.

Mad Max is no exception. She’ll play the race card and the woman card simultaneously every chance she gets.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) claimed Sunday on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” that the Republican Party was scared of her. They don’t want Waters to be the chair of the Financial Services Committee. And her reasoning is pathetic. Maxine claims it’s because she is a “strong, black woman.”

When asked about a Republican congressman’s comments saying she would harass President Donald Trump with investigations, Waters argued that the GOP is racist.

“That’s the opposition talking about what would happen if this strong, black woman Maxine Waters is the chair of the Financial Services Committee,” Waters said. “They’ve never seen anybody like me before.

“There’s never been a woman in the history of this country that’s been the chairperson of the Financial Services Committee, and certainly never a black woman,” she continued. “And so they send out these dog whistles to their constituents to get them fired up about the possibility of what Maxine Waters might do.”

Hmm. Let’s Consider the Facts.

Actually Maxine, America is concerned with having another corrupt liberal in power. Especially when we have so many, such as Brenda Snipes, Donna Brazile, Kamala Harris, Susan Rice, Loretta Lynch and others.

Campaign finance documents show Waters’ campaign committee, Citizens for Waters, paid the California Democrat’s daughter, Karen Waters  $54,000  in 2018. Karen’s job was to produce, print and mail the sample ballots, with an additional $65,000 forthcoming.

The congressional campaign paid her $72,000 in the 2016 cycle, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, which tracks money in politics.

Since 2004, the campaign in turn reportedly has paid $750,000 to the congresswoman’s daughter, Karen Waters, or her public relations firm Progressive Connections for help producing them.

A government watchdog in July filed the first of two complaints with the Federal Election Commission. They’re asking for a full audit of the Citizens for Waters campaign.

The first complaint alleges Waters broke federal campaign finance law, and also names the California Democratic State Central Committee and Sen. Kamala Harris, a likely 2020 Democratic presidential contender.

Rep. Waters, first elected in 1990, has been in the headlines lately for her calls to impeach President Trump. Furthermore, she repeatedly urges violence and public confrontations with his Cabinet officials.

For the 2018 election cycle, FEC data shows, as of July 28, that Democrat Gavin Newsom’s gubernatorial campaign paid $27,000 to Waters’ re-election campaign to be in the mailers.

Waters, a frequent critic of President Trump,  often calls for his impeachment.

Yet, Trump accomplished more for black Americans in 21 months than all Democrat black “leaders” accomplished in their entire lives.

The whole world should be scared to death with this. Waters, a crooked corrupt charlatan who enriches herself at the expense of her constituents,  should never chair a financial committee.
