Why is Maxine Waters still on Facebook and Twitter?
Saturday at 2:21 pm
What happened on the border is worse than slavery, she perversely claims.
Rep. Maxine Waters, the California Democrat, insisted that what happened on the southern border–horsemen blocking Haitian illegal aliens from entering America–was “worse than what we witnessed in slavery.” Can she really mean it? Is she that stupid?
Let us remember that speaking or writing “misinformation”–as determined by some invisible Judge of Wokeness–is cause for getting banned from Facebook, Twitter and other Orwellian social media.
It was enough to get a president of the United States expelled, someone elected by the people, no matter whom he is. Alleged misinformation was enough to get the New York Post silenced on Twitter. And that was for reporting what has turned out to be true about Hunter Biden’s laptop.
Now comes Waters with speech that is so wrong, so contrary to fact and so dangerous. Yet she remains on social media. So do the others, such as President Joe Biden and his press secretary Jen Psaki for similar nonsense.
Worse than slavery? First, the preponderance of evidence does not prove that anyone was getting whipped, and certainly not like slaves were whipped. To equate the two is to debase the suffering of millions of enslaved men, women and children.
From the first to arrive in America in 1619 to the almost 4 million held as slaves in 1860. To the uncounted number who died horrible deaths as they were shipped to America. To the mothers and fathers who saw their children sold off. To the ones who risked all to run to freedom, including those who didn’t make it. To the the shackled or physically tortured for the slightest offense. To the many who died working the fields. To the lynched.
Just as bad is her silence and absence of concern about thousands of men, women and children before her very eyes who huddled under a bridge to escape the scorching son. About the children who have been abandoned, including the toddler who discovered next to his infant sibling in the high weeds where she was left by….? About Americans who will become infected with Covid and die because of the mess that Biden has created on the border. Her view of suffering is selective and lopsided.
Can Waters be that blind or ignorant of her own history? Or does she know better and is just determined to stoke the fires of racial hatred incinerating America? Doesn’t matter which. What she has done is so far beyond “misinformation” that the censors would have to create a new descriptive. Lies, falsifications, distortions or fabrications don’t seem to capture the staggering depth of hatred that she has invoked,
How to stop her from continuing in this same kind of deceitfulness? Should she resign? Should she be censored by her congressional colleagues? Should her remarks be disavowed and condemned by progressives? (Fat chance of that.) Should she, like so many conservatives whose voices have been silenced by the tech-autocrats, be banned from social media?
Silencing her would be wrong, just as the voices of conservatives are routinely silenced. Even loons have a right to speak. Silencing her would only strengthen her standing among the many who think she’s right, even smart. More important, it reveals what a moron she truly is.
Only condemnation from her side of the political landscape will address the damage that she has done to the commonweal. But from them, only silence. Just as the person who knowing supplies an arsonist with gasoline, those progressives are equally guilty and disgusting.
