While the media and other leftist elites ignore the millions of folks living in “flyover” states, they do so at their own peril; it was this silent majority that put President Trump in the White House. Each week, Liberty Nation gives voice to the hard-working heartlanders who are silent no more.
She may have absconded with one of James Brown’s wigs, but zany old Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) was channeling Aunt Ester from Sandford and Son while appearing on MSNBC earlier this week. In true form, Waters went on a President Donald Trump inspired rant, claiming he was making her a target of white supremacists.
After appearing on the cable news station yammering about Russian collusion and whistleblowing to an indulgent talking head, Waters began a tirade reminiscent of calling for her people to run conservatives and Trump supporters out of town:
“He shouldn’t be going after anybody. He’s a president of the United States of America. He is setting some of us up to be killed. I have death threats constantly … And when he does that, he’s dog-whistling to the white supremacists, the KKK, and the dangerous people. We have stories about many of those white supremacists who do nothing but practice how they are going to be involved in a civil war and fight against its government. And this president is irresponsible in so many ways, aside from making us a target of these white supremacists and those who would kill us in a civil war. Some of us would be the first to be killed.”
How many times in one long breath did Mad Maxine say “white supremacist?” She appeared more akin to a tantrum throwing toddler trying out a new word than a United States Congresswoman. But a young man from Waynesville, NC, John Cloer, agrees, in part: “Gonna go out on a limb here … Were this to happen, I’m pretty sure she and plenty of her colleagues might NOT be safe, and race has absolutely nothing to do with it.”
Lyn Godin Butler from Kankakee, IL, asked some questions we all need an answer to: “Why is she still in Congress? Are the people in California that stupid? Sorry. I should know better than ask such a question about California.”
Sensing no one would stop her, the Matronly motor-mouth went into a discussion of how well she knows the law and that the president was clearly a moron: “And he should not be talking about he wants to interview them. If he knew anything about law, he wouldn’t be so ignorant as to think that somehow anybody’s going to allow him to interview a whistle-blower.” Oh, but someone in Trump’s camp is sure to have the honor.
Chicagoan Gretchen Ruffian felt a tinge of sadness for the old gal seemingly clinging to a last gasp of sanity. “I think she knows she done,” Gretchen said. A thousand miles west in Evanston, WY, Clay Angwin gave genius credit to the founding fathers. “I think the founding fathers set it up for all in government to fear their lives could be in danger during a civil war. She should stop trying to incite one.”
Not too many folks in flyover country are fans of Maxine Waters. Even the bravery she has shown since she declared war on Republicans and Trump supporters hasn’t swayed the middle American electorate. Her plaintive admission of fear, “I mean, I can’t go to the grocery store anymore by myself. I have to pay for security all the time. I can’t move around the country without security,” had the Second Amendment folks in tears – and laughter.
“Try and take our guns and there will be a civil war – which we will no doubt win. I am my family’s armed security,” offered Nebraskan Joe Davis.
But it all boiled down to getting a kick out the quirky legislator from California and her disastrous fashion choices, and not the Russia, Ukraine, Chinese tall tales of collusion. Hoosier Mary Bills was not shy in her assessment, either: “Looks like she has been colluding with some sad a$$ wig maker.” And that’s the truth. I can hear old Fred Sandford hollering at Aunt Ester now, “Go back to your cave, bat!”
