This week the focus is on and heat has been turned up for Mad Maxine Waters. And rightfully so. Even her own party has begun to put some distance between themselves and ol’ Maxine. The question is, why?
She did nothing that her party historically never has had a problem with in the past or even recently.
Peter Fonda threatens the Trump family, crickets from the Left. Jim Carrey displays hideous art depictions of President Trump and Melania and you could hear a pin drop on the Left. Kathy Griffin holds a severed head of the President and cheers explode across the Liberal Landscape. Comics on late night and cable shows encourage all kinds of violent acts against the President and his followers and no chiding, no calls for civility from the Left.
Do you see any difference in what we have seen coming from the left for months in the form of venom, violence, and vindictiveness and what Ms. Waters did? She’s black! Almost all other assaults, verbal and otherwise, have been launched by whites. Is there a bias here? Is it okay by the Left’s standards for whites to unleash vile attacks but, not blacks. Does the left still think there are times blacks should hold their piece, less they get too uppity?
I find it bizarre that the Left and Democrats are so quick to speak out on Maxine Waters and show a willingness to throw her under the bus. But have virtually remained silent or defended all others; who are primarily white.
Is there underlying racism here? Are there fears that Mad Maxine Waters is becoming the face of the Democratic Party; thereby diminishing the role of her white counterparts, like Chucky Schumer and Nancy Pelosi.
I’d hate to think that the party that prides themselves on being the champions of racial equality, fairness and justice would be putting a black women in her place lest she would show them up.
Should not a black women be allowed to be as ugly, despicable and heinous as any white person?
