Maxine Waters Goes On Unhinged Twitter Tirade After Opponent Is Endorsed By Michael Flynn

She focused on attacking both men for being convicted criminals.

Just recently, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) lashed out at her opponent Omar Navarro and Gen. Michael Flynn in an unhinged Twitter tirade.

Just recently, Omar Navarro, a conservative Latino politician currently challenging Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) for her seat in the House of Representatives, was endorsed by Gen. Michael Flynn. Following the endorsement, Waters went on Twitter and promptly attacked both of them in an unhinged tirade.

“Desperate, unstable, and convicted criminal Omar Navarro stoops low in soliciting help from another indicted criminal in a campaign against #MaxineWaters – what a campaign!” tweeted Waters, referring to the fact that Navarro pleaded guilty to “placing a tracking device on his wife’s car” back in 2016 and Flynn pleaded guilty to “lying to the FBI” several months ago.  

In a follow-up tweet, she added, “indicted Michael Flynn who pleaded guilty about his conversations w/ Russians is in CA tonight campaigning for convicted Omar Navarro on probation for putting a tracking device on his wife’s car. Apparently, the two will spend a lot of time together discussing their crimes.”

Waters’ criticism of Navarro and Flynn comes shortly after Flynn gave a speech at a fundraising event near Palm Desert a few days ago.

“What I’m not here to do is, I’m not here to complain about who has done me wrong or how unfair I’ve been treated, or how unfair the entire process has been,” stated Flynn at the time.

“I’m here to talk about the future — your future, our future, the future of this country,” he continued.

“I saw a passion in the eyes of Omar,” added Flynn, noting, “my passion and my destiny changed when I saw our country taking a fundamentally different direction, in a world filled with challenges and challengers.”

In addition to Navarro and Flynn, Waters also recently lashed out at President Donald Trump. She did so during an episode of MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” when host Joy Reid asked her about President Donald Trump suggesting that she has a low IQ while at a rally in Pennsylvania earlier this month.

When asked by Reid to respond to President Trump referring to her as a “low IQ individual,” Rep. Waters stated, “well, this is typical of him. He has expertise at name calling.”

In an attempt to underscore her point, she claimed he’s increasingly targeting women. “I understand in addition to continuing his name calling of me referring to my IQ and calling me low IQ, that he continued to attack Elizabeth Warren, Nancy Pelosi, made some reference to Oprah Winfrey, on and on and on, and it seems he’s identifying and picking up more and more women that he’s attacking,” explained Waters.

“Again, I expected this, though. This is not only typical of him. This is what this con man does. He diverts attention from himself by attacking others,” she reasoned.

After pointing this out, Waters then tried, quite unsuccessfully, to adopt President Trump’s tactic of giving people nicknames.

“I’m not going to run from it. I’m not intimidated by him, and so he can keep calling names. I’ve got plenty for him. As a matter of fact, everybody knows he’s a con man. He’s been a con man all of his life, long before he ever ran for office, and so this con man, Con Man Don, is going to keep it up and again he’s coming for me, I’m coming for him,” proclaimed Waters. as if her nickname was anywhere near as clever as the ones that the president comes up with.  

Sadly, Navarro, Flynn, and President Trump aren’t the only conservatives to recently be targeted by liberals.

Last month, for instance, United States Attorney General (AG) Jeff Sessions, who’s an unapologetic supporter of law enforcement officers, was attacked by countless angry liberals for pointing out that sheriffs are a “critical part of the Anglo-American heritage of law enforcement.” This is because, according to many on the left, saying this supposedly makes him an “outright racist.”

One of the people most upset by what he said was California’s Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom. Shortly after hearing the attorney general’s comments, Newsom went online and tweeted a video of his comment along with a furious caption stating, “reminder that our Attorney General is an outright racist who wants us all to acknowledge ‘Anglo-American heritage.’”

All of the outrages, though, are incredibly misguided. This is due to the fact that in the legal community, the phrase “Anglo-American legal tradition,” is simply a synonym for “common law.” It’s also a phrased used numerous times in the Supreme Court.

And prior to the outrage over Sessions’ comment, comedian Bill Maher viciously bashed Scott Pruitt, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) during an episode of HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher.” He did so by calling him an “eco-terrorist.”

Later in the episode, Maher also essentially bashed every single patriot at the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency, all of whom put their lives at risk every single day to ensure that others are safe.

“I mean, Trump may not be Hitler, but ICE is the Gestapo, and they’re acting like it,” he declared.

By saying this, Maher is basically claiming that the agents tasked with removing dangerous criminals who entered our country illegally are the same as the literal Nazis who rounded up legal citizens and sent them to concentration camps simply because of their religion or political belief. Not only is this absolutely absurd, it’s also utterly reprehensible as it unfairly targets countless hard-working Americans who’ve done nothing wrong.  

Much like with the attack on Sessions, however, the claims about Pruitt and ICE are also without merit. Unfortunately, though, for many on the left, this doesn’t matter as their anger is strictly partisan and not necessarily bound to reality.

Without a doubt, the authoritarian left’s continuous attacks against conservatives are utterly reprehensible. They also highlight the fact that many liberals are only concerned about being respectful to people they agree with.
