Ahle, Steven| Opinion| May 13th 2020 – Maxine Waters is at it again. Revealing the true face of the Democratic party.
The longer they can keep their states shut down, the better chance they have of defeating President Trump.
Never mind that it drives small businesses out of existence and puts its employees out of work.
It’s a small price to pay in order to get a Democrat in the White House, no matter how pitiful their candidate is.
Maxine Waters never complains about protesters when they are the violent Antifa gang. But people who want to support their families or avoid bankruptcy are evil.
Power over liberty.
“You know our governors are under great stress. The protests that have been organized, the protests trying to intimidate our governors to open up everything are protests where the people participating in that should be ashamed of themselves. They should not be encouraged in any way. They should not be encouraged from the top leadership of this country to go out and do that.”
In 2018 it was a whole different story for the hypocritical Waters:
“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere. We’ve got to get the children connected to their parents.”
She continued, “I know the pressure is on. I know that you’re trying to hold the line. I want you to hold the line. I don’t want to see these establishments opened back up. I want the federal government to join with the cities and the states to support these families in every way that we can. I do want a moratorium on rent evictions. I have a huge bill. I have a $100 billion bill to pay the landlords. We don’t want them to risk their properties, many of them have bought a small number of units, ten units, four units as a retirement property. I know that they need to pay their mortgages. I am going to absolutely see to it that they are reimbursed, that they are paid for the moratorium on evictions on their apartments.”
