Black leaders slam Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer for not protecting Maxine Waters

July 5, 2018

  Last week Maxine Waters was condemned–not by name but the target was clear–by Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer for comments she had made about going after Trump administration officials while they are on their personal time.

  Maxine Waters fired back at the two Democratic leaders, saying they would say anything to hold on to their power. In a post I wrote about this story I rather sarcastically noted it was interesting to note that two white Democratic leaders were trying to silence a black Democrat and nobody was playing the race card.

  Well, I guess I should have just waited. About 200 black female leaders have now sent a letter to Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer voicing their displeasure with the two leaders over how they handled the Maxine Waters situation. Here is more:

Black female leaders and allies are blasting House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer for what they see as their “failure” to protect Rep. Maxine Waters from “unwarranted attacks from the Trump administration and others in the GOP.”

“We write to share our profound indignation and deep disappointment over your recent failure to protect Congresswoman Waters from unwarranted attacks from the Trump Administration and others in the GOP,” the group of nearly 200 women wrote in a letter sent Tuesday. “That failure was further compounded by your decision to unfairly deride her as being ‘uncivil’ and ‘un-American.’”

“In doing so, we believe this mischaracterizes her call to action for peaceful democratic assembly and the exercise of her constitutional rights to free speech in support of defenseless immigrant children and their families,” the women wrote.

But that was not all, WAIT. FOR. IT…

“Disparaging or failing to support Congresswoman Waters is an affront to her and Black women across the country and telegraphs a message that the Democratic Party can ill afford: that it does not respect Black women’s leadership and political power and discounts the impact of Black women and millennial voters,” the women wrote.

Now that sounds more like the Democratic party we have come to know over the years.

    Hard to justify the behavior of an insane person. But let’s face it Schumer and Pelosi are insane too.

    The letter appears to a veiled attempt to push back on Trump’s immigration policy. This position however does not appear to be a winning issue in the black community.

    “for speaking truth to power in challenging the Trump Administration to do the right thing by ending a “Zero Tolerance” immigration policy. … this inhumane immigration policy has separated over 2,000 children from their families.

    The other thing that is curious is the mention of millennial. “…respect Black women’s … and millennial voters” Is this an attack on the leadership for failing to respond to the #walkaway campaign?

      That’s an interesting point on the #walkaway campaign. Democrats have taken the black and youth vote for granted for so long that they don’t think there is any chance of losing them but we are starting to see it turn around a little.

        Some are using the #walkaway movement to promote “gayism” (homosexuality for the older crowd), so the Trump gang is saying, “You’re welcome too.”
        ‘Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.’ and makes people crazy.

        No doubt they are going to try to infiltrate the movement to try to sully what it is about.

        The #RunAway approach brings to mind Joseph and ‘the master’s adulterous wife’ who ‘cast her eyes on him saying, “Lie with me.”
        “Lies” comes in many different forms, but the ‘liars’ want everyone to be a part of their conniving lies, for their own personal gains and pleasures ~ “…she caught him by his garment, saying, Lie with me: and he left his garment in her hand, and fled, and got him out.” [he got himself OUT]!
        The lying wife “accuses” Joseph as the guilty one “she called unto the men of her house, and spake unto them, saying, See, he [husband] hath brought in an Hebrew unto us to mock us; he came in unto me to lie with me, and I cried with a loud voice:” She states the same “lie” to her husband, the master of the house, who believes her lie, “his wrath was kindled … took him [Joseph], and put him into the prison, a place where the king’s prisoners were bound: … But the LORD was with Joseph, and shewed him mercy, and gave him favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison.’
        So, God uses the evils to bring about His Good Will and Purpose ~ much Grander than the ‘lying mockers of ruin!’ God placed Joseph in what looked to be ‘something he’s not get out of (like his brothers putting him in a pit), but that becomes the ‘way’ for him to become one of the ‘top guys’ God uses to ‘save’ the masses from starvation (drought, famine) ~ He was God’s chosen, for that time! Who’s God using today?!!

        I pray so! 😊
        I’m listening to this vid about those who are spending effort, time $$$ (even roadside billboards!) to turn people away from Qanon.
        He makes some good points about why the enemy wants people ‘not believe them’ because Q & Trump are determined to ‘stop’ them, put them down.
        We who want GOOD say “Good! Go Forth, Do the Job ~ God’s Speed!”

        I pray that he is as well. There is no doubt in my mind the reason why they are going after Trump so hard is because he is not one of them and they want to take him down before he takes them down.

    For once these two clods got bitten in the ass this one time by 200 denizens of the democrat plantation even though their acting in self interest was the right thing.

    I’ve got a new theory about all this. Hillary is active in stirring people up and raising money. Obama is training organizers with his new foundation. Waters is keeping everyone’s attention away from Hillary and Obama while stirring up the radical fringe.

    They’re working up something so bad, that even Pelosi and Schumer can stomach it.

    Fasten your seat belts, we have a real conspiracy in the works.

    That is an interesting theory and I wouldn’t be surprised if they are all in this together, it is more surprising they seem to be at odds. Which might be what they want us to think…

      Pelosi and Schumer are pulling back slightly from their normal positions. Obama’s activities are getting very little MSM attention (it’s mostly being spread on the Liberal internet). Hillary is getting modest press, but apparently very good reception at her events.

      I’m doing a lot of projection here, but I think we’re not only seeing a deep rift in the Dems, but we’re also watching the emergence of a serious (especially combined with the Deep State) conspiracy to take over our government.

        The Clintons will be in this up to their eyeballs. As reported today the middle america couple, America’s couple, are now flying sans security on commercial airways. Who believes the “american people are savvy enough to see this for what it is? And anyone naive enough to believe in this so called walk away movement/campaign, I have a toll booth on the NJ Turnpike for sale. Shoyld Kavanaugh not he confirmed, and the odds are less than 50/50 he will be, the house of cards will start to fall great economy or not. Abortions and illegal children, LGBTQ rights, non sexual differentiation, women’s rights, shared bathrooms, will trump (no pun intended) a robust economy, job creation, tax cuts, eased relations with NOKO. God has been kicked out so he won’t help, the GOP has caved to the left non-stop for the past 60 years and once Trump is out it will be a blood lust in Washington DC. Just one man’s opinion. And yes, the Clintons are waiting, emerging rather from the wings ready to lead the charge once President Booker is sworn in.

        I think there is a rift in the Democratic party and I think many of the voters want to see Hillary go away because she is yesterday’s news. The Democratic voters still love Barack Obama and I think we should be worried about what he is doing which is going under the radar.

        To you and I when we see the Clinton’s riding commercial in economy class it is very transparent and clear to see what is going on, but to the left (just like the picture with them on the beach in the 90’s) it works just as planned.
