PAST PERFORMANCE IS NO GUARANTEE OF FUTURE RESULTS: Chip Roy Gets Maxine Waters to Denounce Maxine Waters in Amazing Exchange.
Before he addressed Waters, though, Roy stated that “I was intrigued by an op-ed that I saw not too long ago by a Democrat from Cuba commenting on one of our colleagues, an avowed socialist [AOC], and essentially pointing out the extent to which ‘democratic socialism is a lot like the system my family fled except its proponents promised to be nicer when seizing your business.’”
“That’s the truth,” Roy remarked. “We can talk about these terms as if they don’t matter, but they do. They do matter. They’re actually at the core of who we are.”
“I’ve got one question for the ranking member,” Roy continued, looking at Waters and then his notes. “Ranking member Waters, in a 2008 hearing you said quote, ‘and guess what, this liberal will be all about? This liberal will be all about socializing, would be about basically taking over the government and the government running all of your companies,’ end quote” Roy said. “Simple question: Do you stand by that statement?”
Waters responded by first claiming that socialism was “basically a non-issue” and saying that the federal programs she was trying to protect were the same ones Roy wanted to protect.
Roy didn’t take the bait and insisted on Waters addressing the 2008 remarks he referenced where she appeared to advocate for a government takeover of the oil industry. Waters denied twice during their back and forth that she was a socialist. She later claimed she was a “capitalist” in what hilariously came across as Maxine Waters denouncing Maxine Waters when all was said and done.
Now get her to denounce her numerous calls for violence:
● Rep. Maxine Waters Jokes About Threatening Trump Supporters ‘All The Time.’
● Maxine Waters: ‘Americans should be out in the streets screaming’ for Trump’s head.
● Democrat Maxine Waters Makes Public Call For Harassment & Violence Against Members of Trump Administration.
