(National Sentinel) Divisive: Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., had a meltdown on the House floor last week in response to a statement by Pennsylvania Republican Rep. Mike Kelly in which he echoed President Donald J. Trump’s “make America great again” moniker.
What triggered crazy “Auntie Maxine?”
Kelly said: “We are trying to make sure we are making America great every day in every way and the best way to do that is to stop stalking about discrimination and start talking about the nation. We’re coming together as a people, in spite of what you say.”
The debate was about repealing Obama-era automobile lending guidelines. Kelly says they’re unnecessarily divisive and race-based; we know he’s right because everything Obama did was unnecessarily divisive and race-based.
But it was too much for Waters.
“Mr. Kelly, please don’t leave, because I want you to know that I am more offended as an African-American woman than you will ever be. And this business about making America great again, it is your president that’s dividing this country. And don’t talk to me about the fact that we don’t understand.”
When Kelly asked if she will yield, Water said, “No, I will not yield, no I will not yield. Don’t tell me we don’t understand, that’s the attitude given toward women time and time again.”
When the chair Rep. Tom McClintock (R-CA ) tried to gain control, Water shot back, “Don’t you stop me in the middle when you didn’t stop him in the middle and so I shall continue. Don’t you dare talk to me like that and think that somehow women don’t understand what goes on on the floors of automobile dealers.”
She continued, “I don’t appreciate that you did not interrupt him when he was making those outrageous remarks about him knowing more about discrimination than I know about discrimination. I resent that, and I resent the remark about making America great again. He’s down here making a speech for this dishonorable president of the United States of America… and no I don’t yield, not one second to you. Not one second. Not one second to you.”
On Saturday Kelly — who, by the way, owns a car dealership (unlike Auntie Maxine) — defended himself against the tirade in an interview with Fox News‘ Neil Cavuto.
“We’re talking about thousands upon thousands of auto dealers and millions of people who work in the industry, and making a broad statement that these are people who discriminate against non-white buyers,” Kelly said. “That is absolutely preposterous.”
Calling Waters’ argument not one “based on fact,” and the study she cited “flawed” and “junk,” Kelly told Cavuto the “rates they pay” are based on “something called a beacon score” and have nothing to do with race or gender.
In contesting her charge that dealers “think women are stupid” and “have been taken advantage of,” the Pennsylvania Republican said she was attacking “the integrity” of an entire industry.
“To say that somehow what we do is we prey on non-white people is incredibly divisive,” Kelly said. “It’s not who we are as a country, and if we continue down this path, this cancer that’s working its way through our society and breaking us down as a people, you can’t talk that way.”
“As a person that works in the automobile industry you cannot sit there and listen to that kind of talk and not rise up and say that is flawed, that is false and that is untrue,” he continued.
Waters is a typical Marxist Democrat: She doesn’t care about what’s true and what isn’t. Division is her lifeblood, as it is with her party.
The Democratic Party is America’s disease. Donald J. Trump and Trump-aligned Republicans are the cure.
