“I think the big difference is what regularly happens to Congresswoman Waters because her words are so powerful and for whatever reason, the Republicans and apparently, some Democrats are threatened by her power and her courage, her words are not only taken out of context, she’s misquoted,” Rye said.
Misquoted? The video of Waters calling for threatening behavior towards Trump cabinet members and their families shows Waters, no one else, shrieking and spewing venom and hate. Rye knows this, and frankly, the fact that the video exposes what Maxine Waters is. This is why Rye is in full blown attack dog mode.
“The fact that Chuck Schumer called what a black woman said un-American is problematic and this is the reason why Democrats have a hard time reuniting the base — it has everything to do with the fact this black woman is is intimidating to some people who can’t handle the truth. It has everything to do with it,” Rye said.
Even Burnett stopped Rye, asking, “But can you not say that just because of the color of her skin?”
“It has everything to do with race,” Rye retorted.
She continued, “What America are you talking about? This is the America of lynch mobs, too. She didn’t call for violence. Trump did.”
Oh of course, the lynch mob card! Rye, like all race baiters uses that a lot. When faced with the facts, she plays the victim and deflects her own hatefulness onto others.
