In a political party that has come unleashed since the election of Barack Obama, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) provides still another example of the over the top lies of Democrats, made with a straight-face. We all know that we should not use Hitler analogies. Still, it is wise to understand history and to recognize when an all-out effort is underway to give the illusion of a common, dangerous enemy, as Hitler did with the Reichstag fire in 1933. These are the words of Congresswoman Waters in 2012.
“On Immigration policy and reform they [Republicans] are on the wrong side of the track… They would have you believe that if they get into office, they are going to make sure that they are going to get rid of everyone in our society who was not born in America. They’re not about civil and human rights.”[i]
The words here, are Water’s and not Obama’s. Yet, there is a striking similarity to this and the phrases uttered by Obama about Hispanic parents being harassed when they take their kids out for ice cream and the need for Hispanic voters to “punish our enemies.” Either this over the top rhetoric is hardwired into Democrats, or they are taking cues from – and marching in lockstep with their leader.
Maxine Waters: Wall Street “Shaking in their Boots”
If there were ever a need to explain the importance of maintaining a Republican majority in the House of Representatives, Rep. Maxine Waters, (D-CA) has given it to us.
At a California Democratic Convention, Waters told her audience:
“…and guess what. Let me let you in on a secret. I am the senior most person serving on the Financial Services Committee. Barney Frank is about to retire and guess who’s shaking in their boots – the too big to fail banks and financial institutions and all of Wall Street, because Maxine Waters is going to be the next Chair of the Financial Services Committee.”[i]
For those who may have forgotten, this is the same Maxine Waters who told an oil company executive that she would be about “…taking over and the government running all of your companies.”[ii]

While Nation of Islam leader, Minister Louis Farrakhan, once referred to Obama as the Messiah,[i]we never expected a member of Congress to claim the opposite of leading Republicans. But, once again, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) has defied all expectations, in noting that:
“We’ve got to take back the House. I saw pictures of Boehner and Kantor on our screens. Don’t ever let me see again in life, those Republicans in our Hall, on our screens, talking about anything. These are Demons! These are Legislators who are destroying this Country…”[ii]
It’s interesting to consider the backlash had such a statement been made by any member of the Republican Party against Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, or Harry Reid, not to mention against any black member of Congress.
Welcome to the Obama era.
