The news was mildly aflutter for part of a day over the most recent bile from the gastrointestinal tract that runs from Maxine Waters' mind to her mouth. While speaking at the California Democratic Convention, in San Diego this month, Waters said: "I saw pictures of Boehner and Cantor on our [convention] screens. Don't ever let me see again, in [my] life, those Republicans in our hall, on our screens, talking about anything. These are demons. They are bringing down this country, destroying this country, because they'd rather do whatever they can do [to] destroy this president rather than for the good of this country."
She also taunted the banking industry, saying that they'll be "shaking in their boots" if Democrats take back the House – which in her mind would pretty much guarantee her becoming the House Financial Services Committee chairwoman. This threat comes from the woman who, as I wrote before, "has been named one of the most corrupt members of Congress by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) in 2005, 2006, 2009, 2011." ("Corrupt Maxine Waters in Line to Replace Barney Frank on Committee"; pjmedia.com; Dec. 18, 2011)
Her rhetoric caused a mild stir, but not for the right reasons. This is not the first time Waters has made what the media politely calls controversial statements, and it's reasonable to believe it won't be the last. And that's where the focus should be.

Media and the black illuminati are lightning-quick to label the most innocuous comment or innocent action as racist, if the source is white. But if it's the reverse, it goes unchallenged and unaddressed. And therein is the evidence of the power and intimidation that blacks command – even though race mongers would have us believe blacks are powerless.
Blacks have two trump cards they can play at any time, in any situation and for any reason. They are "anger" – born out of real or perceived oppressive conditions created by white people – and the "bully factor" – born out of same. As referenced, Waters has a history of making inflammatory and insulting statements, which she defends with her blackness, i.e., it's the mace she uses to remind people that she has a right to be angry. She has been given a pass her entire political career to say things and engage in behavior that a white representative, media person, or analyst would never be forgiven for, unless they are deemed to have favored status. And even then, we see the power of blacks, because it is they who determine what the acceptable standards are.
While discussing her latest outburst, Eric Bolling of Fox News quickly genuflected and backtracked from his jocund comment that Waters needed to stay away from the crack pipe. Trent Lott was forced out of office for making a harmless statement in a moment of jocularity. When have you heard a white comedian make jokes about blacks? But black comics mock whites as a matter of routine.
Waters has been in the forefront of branding the tea-party movement as racist since it began, at one point publicly saying, "the tea party can go straight to hell." Can you imagine the outcry if a white housewife, who identified herself as part of the tea party, told a reporter Obama and his policies can go straight to hell? Can you imagine if, during a speaking event, a white conservative said, "Obama and Biden are demons and I don't want any pictures of them in this room"?

I could give example after example ad nauseum, but my point is that blacks and certain anointed liberals are permitted to spew the vilest vitriol without fear of media condemnation or public outcry, and it's time we stopped cowering to such demagoguery. Blacks cannot claim to be powerless when they control such a powerful bully pulpit.
White people learn at an early age that they are the reason for the ills of blacks. White children are taught that it is whites that have and still do oppress and impede black progress. And due to this specious indoctrination, blacks like Waters are free to say what they want, regardless of how extreme.
Waters herself has said: "I have a right to my anger, and I don't want anybody telling me I shouldn't be [angry]." Whites may not fully understand what she was saying, but blacks sure do. She was saying she has a right to be angry because of what white "demons" did to her and her people.
You may think that's fair, but I don't. If it's wrong for one, it's wrong for all.
