Oh My! “Auntie Maxine” Kicking Chumph Behind!

01 May

Gosh…I can see why the board Trumpazoid is so hot for Maxine! I mean, the well attired Octogenarian really has the boy’s head spinning!

That’s what that Trumpaholism will do to your brain. The only known cure is to pull the victim’s head out of their ass. Sometimes requiring heavy construction equipment…Or an implanted MOAB.

Try not to whimper, little one.

How Maxine Waters became ‘Auntie Maxine’ in the age of Trump

Maxine Waters knows what “throwing shade” means now. She urges people to “stay woke.”

In the past few months, young people have embraced 78-year-old Waters and her acerbic comments about President Trump, bringing the Los Angeles Democrat national fame in her 14th term, and a new nickname: Auntie Maxine.

“It’s unusual for elected officials to step outside of the box,” Waters said in an interview. “The millennials keep telling me for the most part they’ve never heard someone talk like that before.”

Since refusing to attend Trump’s inauguration, Waters, the longest-serving black woman in the House, has achieved icon-level status. Her image and quotes appear on T-shirts and posters. Twitter and Facebook are full of people rubbing their virtual hands in glee at what she might say next.

“When I grow up, I want to be @MaxineWaters. Thank you, Rep. Waters, for being unafraid to speak the truth,” Crystal Webb, a young Twitter user, posted.

“On a different note, @MaxineWaters clap black game is sooooo strong!! #goals,” said another.

“Anyone think Auntie @MaxineWaters is a hero?,” asked another.

Young black activists in particular see a powerful and familiar figure in the impeccably dressed older woman expressing her opinion, even if it might be painfully honest, said Rashad Robinson, who leads the New York-based Color of Change, a progressive civil rights group.

“Maxine Waters has given us the viral videos to go along with our rants,” Robinson said. “People are shaking their heads when she talks, and they are saying, ‘Thank God someone said that.’

“I think for many young black folks, they have that sort of auntie or matriarch in their family that sort of says it like it is,” Robinson said.

The congresswoman’s sudden popularity has led to interview after interview in the likes of Teen Vogue, Jet, Elle, Essence, Cosmopolitan and millennial-focused news sites like Mic and BuzzFeed, with headlines like, “Maxine Waters Is Back and She’s Not Here to Play.”

Southern Californians have long been familiar with Waters, who lives in the Vermont Knolls section of South Los Angeles and is not known for holding her tongue.

In 1994, she was gaveled off the House floor when she refused to stop loudly criticizing a Republican member she felt had badgered a female witness during a hearing. In 2011, she accused President Obama of neglecting black communities, then a week later, said the tea party could go “straight to hell.”

“Nobody should be surprised about me,” she said.

But her derision of Trump goes far beyond previous criticism of political foes, and the new, norm-breaking president has energized her in a way other Republicans she’s opposed have not. In an age when the call from many on her side of the aisle is “Resistance,” Waters has become a de facto leader of the charge.

She couldn’t fathom Trump’s rise during the election, she said, pointing to his insulting comments about former presidential rivals Carly Fiorina and Hillary Clinton, the lewd “Access Hollywood” video in which he bragged about grabbing women and his mocking imitation of a disabled reporter.

“I can’t get it out of my head,” she said. “I’ve never seen anybody as disgusting or as disrespectful as he is.”

The attention began when Waters refused to go to the presidential inauguration. She also stayed away when Trump gave his first speech to Congress, telling the Los Angeles Times, “I don’t honor this president. I don’t respect this president. And I’m not joyful in the presence of this president.”

She has been saying she thinks Trump is headed for impeachment since even before he was sworn in. At an anti-Trump tax march in April, she said she’ll “fight every day until he is impeached.” She refers to his staff as the “Kremlin Klan” and has pushed for an independent investigation into Russian interference in the election and possible collusion by the Trump campaign.

Waters has made it clear she doesn’t want to be in the same room with Trump, much less extend the courtesies commonly afforded the president, regardless of party. She has put politeness aside.

“Newsflash to Trump: Republicans control Washington. Russians control you,” she tweeted in late April.

Waters has always been a target of conservative media, but the attacks have increased since she began in January to speak of impeachment. Last month, the far-right news magazine American Thinker called her unhinged and the “poster child for Trump Derangement Syndrome.”

Now-ousted Fox News host Bill O’Reilly joked earlier this month that he was too distracted by her “James Brown wig” to hear her comments on the House floor about patriotism under Trump. He later apologized.

Waters responded on MSNBC: “Let me just say this: I’m a strong black woman, and I cannot be intimidated. I cannot be undermined. I cannot be thought to be afraid of Bill O’Reilly or anybody.” Her comments quickly went viral….Read the Rest Here

    Nothing off-topic about it. For me, your ecstatic response to the now played-out and always utterly delusional notion that Trump was impeachable, that he or some members of his team had committed treason, tipped your hand that there was some or another beltway negroe kwaku-net chatter going on about a “smoking gun” that would carry the day for the administrative deep state and its parasitic negroe retainers and hangers-on.

    The only “smoking gun” turned out to be .25 caliber saturday night special with a bad clip spring and a cracked barrel, and really nothing more substantive than the backchannel gossiping emanating from Susan Rice hangers-on through the kwaku-net, overexcitedly chimping out about her abuse of sigint for political purposes.

    That ended badly, especially for Dr. Rice. After everything was said and one, Susan Rice got cold-busted on camera lying about what she knew and when she knew it, and the last bufffoons standing, still jacking their jaws about any such foolishness – was you and Auntie Maxine.

    Craig Melvin ended Auntie Maxine’s gas over a week ago – but bless your heart, evidently your kwaku-cohort is still playing April Fool with you and hasn’t yet showed you a copy of the updated memo.

        Was on a biz trip to Dallas some years back, riding in a Cab to my client’s office from another visit. Lovely building with a one-way U shaped drive in front, where the parking spaces on both sides of the driveway were full, leaving room for only one car to get through. My cabbie, a guy of possibly Indian, Paki, or Bangladesh background pulled in in the correct direction. As I was reaching into my wallet to pay the fare, a older white guy comes in from the other direction (the wrong way) and starts shouting for the Cabbie to move. The Cabbie gives the guy a “Just a minute wave” and tuns to ask me if I would like a pickup when my meeting was finished. The other driver jumps out of his car, yelling racial expletives at the Cabbie. The Cabbie yelled out of his open window what the guy could do with himself. The guy reaches into his car and draws out a pistol, while my Cabbie reaches into the glove box and comes out with a large caliber wheel gun. I tossed a $20 over the seat (the fare was about $8.00), and quickly exited the cab, hot footing it to get inside the building.

        Looking back at the scene from a place of safety, the old white guy suddenly found the situation to be much more dangerous than he initially thought, and jumped into his car to make a getaway. The Cabbie calmly got back into his Cab and departed.

        The thing about being a ” Col Stinkmeaner” in real life is sometimes you meet the wrong victim.

        See, here’s the thing.

        Root/Essence/BET loving kneegrows have played themselves for the very last time. It’s the fraudulence and superficiality of your politics. Like Humpty Dumpty, that day and those ways have taken a very great fall.

        All the kings horses, and all the kings men, will never be able to put that Hegelian headfake isht back together again.

        I’m increasingly coming to understand that the inability to comprehend that that day is over has a HUGE generational component to it.

        When you get right down to it though, though dressed up in a suit and tie and the professional and managerial fraud of merit, restraint, and competence, it’s no different in any substantive way than another fact of kneegrow life that the Boondocks properly and precisely skewered.

        So whether politics, celebrity, professional associations, divine 9 coonery, we could go on, and on through the gamut of strivers and we would find exactly the same thing.

      White supremacists, now Reprobates have been inciting racial strife since before the Civil War. Getting a lot of dumb white trash to get their ignorant asses blown off to preserve the rich white racist’s slaves.The modern day version of which is to have voted for Putin’s Bitch, who has already started screwing them over.

      Are you really foolish, and parochial enough to compare that to about 40 years of some of your hated black legislator’s failures?

        AB-SO-PHUKKING-LUTE-LY!!!

        I’ve never suffered a moment’s confusion about where pasty devils of all persuasions stand. Whether Rompin Stompin skinheads many of whose lives I literally, personally, and granularly wrecked during the 80’s and 90’s or JBS elders who desperately wanted the beige IQ-187 on their team, or Phineas Priests in the boar-hunting grasslands of Texas and Arkansas – I’ve never suffered a moment’s confusion about where these enemies stand.

        OTOH – “smiling in your face” incompetent Oak’s Bluff kneegrows have caused me more personal grief and suffering than all the above combined. It is a MUCH higher priority to me to exterminate the race-traitors and parasites than to worry about the blue-eyed xenomorphs we can all see coming 150 miles away….,

        187? Damn! I knew I liked you for some reason.

        Said Kneegrows are going down, C. Read my last couple of posts as to the how and you already know the why. They are going to be “Primaried”. It has already started in some parts of the country. That is really where BLM is going next.

        Phineas Priests? You were into some really freaky shit!
