Radical Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters is known for her constant race-baiting and “activism” within the halls of Congress but her latest attempt to paint United States border agents as racist is a step too far. Last week, images emerged of agents on horseback attempting to re-capture illegal Haitian migrants, and of course, the liberal media got to work concocting a false narrative to paint the agents doing their jobs as the ruthless bad guys. Democrats and the liberal media began claiming the border agents were whipping migrants despite the fact the photographer even came forward to say he never saw any such behavior.
President Biden immediately ate it up and said the agents would be punished and now Rep. Waters is claiming the agents are racist and only tried to capture the migrants because of their skin color.
According to Townhall:
“Well, let me just say that those images were shocking and for those of us who have been fighting for so many years for justice and freedom for all and dealing with what can be done to make up for the past, all of that, it just absolutely shocked us,” Rep. Waters said.
Waters pointed to how differently Afghans have been treated by the U.S. government compared to how some Haitians have been deported back to Haiti, despite the fact that a vast majority of those who recently crossed into the U.S. have been released from custody and are now in the country.
When Waters referred to the video of the now-famous incident in Del Rio, MSNBC Alex Witt said, “Yeah. It was horrific to look at, and I frankly don’t want to see those videos again played on our broadcast during this interview.”
“Haitians have been the victims because they were the first country to fight off, you know, the repression of France. And of course, France has made them pay a big price for it,” Waters said. “Yes, I think they’re treated differently because they’re black, because they’re Haitians, and because traditionally, they have not been treated as human beings.”
There is no question that Rep. Waters is unhinged but this takes the cake, now the border agents charged with helping keep our borders are racist for doing their jobs? This has gone too far.
