Maxine Waters Switcheroo Exposes Leftist Hypocrisy
Changing her words from “Trump cabinet” to “Cuomo administration” pulls the mask off.
Not long ago, we were “fact-checked” on social media for “missing context” in a meme merely quoting several Democrats calling for violence or threats of intimidation. As our Andrew Culper explained, “missing context” is the last-resort catch-all for these lying checkers of facts. We quoted the Democrats accurately. Leftists with an agenda didn’t like that, so it got hit with a “fact-check” for “missing context." One of those Democrats we quoted was Maxine Waters, the unhinged congresswoman from California. She said in the summer of 2018, "If you see anybody from that Trump 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!”
A Twitter account called “Cuomo Watch” had a little fun at the New York governor’s expense by swapping out “Trump cabinet” for “Cuomo administration” just to see how people would react.
It was as predictable as it was hypocritical.
Leftists galore rushed to the fainting couch, complaining that the account was inciting violence against Andrew Cuomo and his staff. It wasn’t just your average Internet dupe, either; numerous elected Democrats must have gotten a talking points memo to universally denounce this uncivil rhetoric.
Carl Heastie, the speaker of the New York State Assembly, wrote, “This is appalling and dangerous. Encouraging violence must never be tolerated. Shame on whoever is behind this kind of garbage.” New York State Senator Diane Savino likewise condemned the tweet and insisted, “Twitter should ban this dude now!” Gale Brewer, the borough president of Manhattan, warned, “I will be alerting appropriate authorities.” Even New York Congressman Ritchie Torres weighed in, hysterically asserting, “As a Congressman who lived through the insurrection against the US Congress, I am appalled by the tweet below, which is an invitation to violence against public officials.”
Torres serves on the House Committee on Financial Services, which is chaired by — wait for it — Maxine Waters.
When confronted with their hypocrisy, these Democrats either deleted their tweets or explained, Shut up!
“I see what they did,” wrote Savino, “but that was then and this is now, and 4 years of Trump has led to words becoming weapons. We can’t just ignore them anymore, people take them as a call to violent actions.”
For his part, Governor Cuomo just blanket-blamed the Right: “When you see the ugliness being fomented for selfish political reasons, everyone should condemn it. … We all know who spreads the ugliness on the Internet.”
Would that be ugliness like claiming he “would’ve decked” President Donald Trump? Yep, that was none other than Andrew Cuomo, who already has enough to answer for with his horrendous handling of the coronavirus pandemic in his state. Maybe he should worry about that instead of selectively condemning certain rhetoric.
