Blacks who happen to be conservatives just don’t get it, according to the liberals. In fact the term “black conservative” is supposed to be an oxymoron. They are a danger to the left because other blacks might listen to their views and decide that race baiters such as Al Sharpton and his allies really are not as helpful to their fellow African-Americans as they claim to be.
Hence, brilliant black conservatives such as Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams are targets of the left. It is probably not too strong to say that liberals consider them to be traitors to the cause of blacks in America. This is a disgraceful accusation to make, but since when have people like Sharpton shown much concern over making disgraceful remarks in their effort to maintain their positions on the public stage and to keep the money flowing in.
One particular disgrace to the Congress, Maxine Waters, is threatening to “take apart” Secretary Ben Carson the next time he appears before a committee of which she is a member. If she plans on using her intellect in an attempt to humiliate Dr. Carson, the whole thing has the potential for becoming a comedy, as Waters would be grossly overplaying her hand.
“According to a Los Angeles Times reporter at the event on Saturday in Gardena, California, Waters said that Carson should go back to being a surgeon, and then told the audience she would ‘take him apart’ when he came before the House Committee on Financial Services.
“Waters is the ranking Democrat on the committee.
“The controversial anti-Trump congresswoman also criticized other members of the president’s cabinet including Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, according to the Los Angeles Times.”
We’re only too familiar with some of Ms. Waters more incoherent rants. In one sense, she could be considered to be a positive boon to the conservative cause by putting liberals and their positions in such a poor light.
“Waters has been an outspoken critic of Trump, and was among the first members of Congress that called for his impeachment. The congresswoman also said that former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly should have gone to prison alongside Trump, and said the president’s cabinet was full of ‘scumbags.'”
Note what is absent here – any evidence to support her accusations. In fact, she does nothing other than rail at conservatives. She offers no thoughtful counter proposals to what the Republicans wish to do.
While Secretary Carson might wish to meet with his staff prior to appearing before the committee on which Waters is a member just to spend a few moment preparing for what she might say, he really doesn’t have much to worry about with Waters.
After all, she’s no brain surgeon.
