Anything that Democrat Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) should be taken with less than a grain of salt, because she’s completely unhinged and filled with hatred towards anyone who thinks differently than she does. However, she is now being lionized by the left because after her latest insane rant Fox News host Bill O’Reilly had the audacity to make fun of her. What speech could have possibly pushed O’Reilly to mock the Congresswoman?
Watch this little bit of slanderous insanity for yourself:
“We knew about his background and his history and what he is known for, and that is discrimination, disrespect for African Americans. My position against this president and his administration is clear: I oppose this president; I do not honor this president; I do not respect this president…
We stand up for America, oftentimes when others who think they are more patriotic, who say they are more patriotic do not. We’re saying to those who say they are patriotic but they turned a blind eye to the destruction that he is about to cause this country: you are not nearly as patriotic as we are.”
Yes. She just called the President a disrespectful racist. Yes. She just said that everyone who voted for or supports the President is not as patriotic as the Democrats are (which let’s face it, is impossible. How many “patriotic” Democrats are there? Like 3?).
This fiction that Democrats tell about President Trump being known for “discrimination” or “racism” is patently ridiculous and easily disproven. Trump has spent decades in the public eye and there are plenty of images, videos, and recordings of him being praised by minority groups including Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and many other leaders in the African-American community. However, this is the Democrats favorite tactic and so they continue to use it even when it is false on its face.
The speech was so completely disrespectful and disconnected from reality that Bill O’Reilly felt compelled to mock Waters for delivering it. During an appearance on Fox & Friends Monday, O’Reilly said he didn’t hear a word of her speech because he was distracted by the “James Brown wig” that Waters was wearing. Inappropriate? Probably. Hilarious? Definitely.
Sadly, Waters and the left are using O’Reilly’s joke to allow Waters to pretend to be some kind of persecuted soul who is just fighting the good fight. They’ve already forgotten her horribly slanderous words and shifted to “Bill O’Reilly’s mean.”
In response to O’Reilly’s comments Waters told MSNBC host Chris Hayes:
“I’m a strong black woman. I cannot be intimidated. I cannot be undermined. I cannot be thought to be afraid of Bill O’Reilly or anybody,” she said. “I’d like to say to women out there everywhere, don’t allow these right-wing talking heads, these dishonorable people, to intimidate you or scare you. Be who you are! Do what you do! And let us get on with discussing the real issues of this country!
Bill O’Reilly and Roger Ailes have no credibility. They have been sued by women. They’ve had to pay millions of dollars out in fines for harassment and other kinds of things and so we know about that checkered past.
When a woman stands up and speaks truth to power, there will be an attempt to put her down. I’m not going to be put down, I’m not going to go anywhere. I’m going to stay on the issues.”
Speaking of “no credibility” Waters is still trying to impeach President Trump even though she has no cause to do so.
