On Thursday, during an interview with TMZ, Rep. Maxine Waters, D-California, told the citizens that President Donald Trump recreated the United States to become a nation in which a police officer could enjoy the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
A popular African American Congresswoman with leftists and the news media, Waters, 81, is a high-profile politician currently serving as the U.S. Representative for California’s 43rd congressional district since 1991. The district, numbered as the 29th district from 1991–1993 and as the 35th district from 1993 to 2013, includes much of southern Los Angeles, as well as portions of Gardena, Inglewood and Torrance.
According to the TMZ transcript of Waters’ reaction to the killing of a black security guard by a white police officer, the loud and boisterous Trump-hater said, “I’m reflecting of all the killings of young black men in particular but of course black woman as well, at the hands of police and at the hands if white supremacists. I’m thinking about the way that the president conducts himself in a way he’s dog-whistling. And I think that they are feeling that they can get away with this kind of treatment.”
Waters added, “I think that the officer who had his name on his neck enjoyed doing what he was doing. I believe sometimes some of these offices leave alone, thinking I’m going to get me one today. And I think this is his one that he got today. And he didn’t care whether or not anybody was photographing him. He did what he was doing. The officers who stood there and watched him are just as guilty as he is. I’m glad that all of them were fired. If, in fact, you have subdued a suspect that you’re not in any danger at all because the handcuffs are on him, there’s no reason for the police to do what this police did. And they don’t even mention in the report that the knee was on the neck George Floyd. You give them the right they would say to shoot you if you interfere with an arrest. And so it is dangerous, and citizens are doing the best job that they could do by photographing it. They’re photographing. They’re showing what is taking place, and what we’re finding is that the justice system does not work. Because the justice system will find a way to protect those offices in most cases, they will find justifiable homicide. And that’s what we’ve got to deal with. We’ve got to deal with the fact that we’re in America with a justice system that does not work for everybody.”
During the interview, no one asked Rep. Waters about the numerous racially-motivated riots that occurred during the administration of President Barack Obama, America’s first African American Commander in Chief. Using her logic, Obama was responsible for the deaths of blacks at the hands of police in Ferguson, Baltimore and New York City:
The so-called Obama Riots were a series of racially-motivated violent protests that occurred nationwide during President Barack Obama‘s time in the Oval Office. Initially elected as America’s first “post-racial” president, many African-Americans became increasingly disillusioned as Obama’s presidency progressed. Critics said that Obama personally inflamed the rioters and lawless elements responsible for the destruction of property, businesses, and jobs in several American cities. Not only that, but blacks had a higher percentage of unemployment than both whites and Asians, who suffered through high unemployment during what the media called — with a straight face — a slow but sure economic recovery.
Pat Caddell and Doug Schoen — two well-known Democratic Party political advisors and media commentators — noted: “Rather than being a [sic] unifier, Mr. Obama… divided America on the basis of race, class and partisanship.”
Professor Mary Frances Berry, a former head of the U.S. Civil Rights Commission under both the Bill Clinton and George Bush administrations, acknowledged that the Obama administration attempted to polarize America around the issue of race as a way of diverting attention from an anemic recovery and other issues. Prof. Berry, a historian, is an 82-year-old black woman who witnessed the fight for civil rights up-close-and personal growing up poor and black in the south.
Caddell and Schoen further stated, “President Obama’s divisive approach to governance has weakened us as a people and paralyzed our political culture.”
During the Memorial Day holiday, 10 people died and 39 others were wounded in weekend shootings in Chicago — making it Chicago’s the deadliest Memorial Day weekend in five years, when 12 people were killed.
Despite the state’s stay-at-home order, the weekend’s death toll already surpassed last year’s holiday weekend, when seven people were killed and 34 were injured during the period from 5 p.m. Friday through 5 a.m. Tuesday.
Former U.S. Navy Seal Dan Crenshaw, a Republican congressman from Texas, accused Maxine Waters of siding with Iran to attack President Trump. Iran has claimed the drone was over its airspace, but the U.S. has insisted it was actually over international waters. However, Waters called Trump a liar and that she believed the Iranian government.
“This is a shocking comment from a House Committee Chairwoman,” Crenshaw, 35, noted. “She [Rep. Waters] is literally repeating the lies of the Iranian regime. What a disgrace.”
