|Democratic lawmaker fires back at old fart Bill O'Reilly.|
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said she won't be intimidated by a man who has a notorious history of sexually harassing women. She won't bow to the right wing agitators who want her to "shut up."
"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," Waters said on All In with Chris Hayes.
"And I'd like to say to women out there everywhere: Don't allow these right-wing talking heads, these dishonorable people, to intimidate you or scare you. Be who you are. Do what you do. And let us get on with discussing the real issues of this country."
She added that discrimination is on the rise and Waters is hoping that her message is heard to those who are "fired up" about the country's direction.
"We have suffered discrimination. We have suffered isolation and undermining," Waters said. "But we stand up for America, often times when others who think they are more patriotic, who says that are more patriotic, do not."
She said that Bill O'Reilly and his former boss Roger Ailes are the real problems in the country.
|O'Reilly resorts to the canard about Black lawmakers failing Black America. He questioned the patriotism of Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA).|
On The O'Reilly Factor, the agitator made his explanation about Waters in his Talking Points Memo.
He didn't really apologize for saying that comment. He doubled down and deflected to the usual canard about Black lawmakers and Barack Obama's "so-called" ineptness to fix problems in the Black community.
It's also noted that Eric Bolling has said some offensive comments about Waters too.
The co-host of The Five had said back in 2012, Waters need to "step away from the crack pipe, step away from the Xanax, step away from the Lorazepam because it's going to get you in trouble."
Bolling has no comment on the controversy.
O'Reilly has said some nasty things about Black leaders, Barack Obama and women.
O'Reilly had attacked Black lawmakers. Those who O'Reilly attacked were Barack Obama, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA), Rep, John Lewis (D-GA), Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) and Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ).
Don't forget his infamous feuds with hip-hop artists Christopher "Ludacris" Bridges, Snoop Dogg, Jay-Z and Nas.
Is it time for the old fart to loaded in the cannon and fired out of the tent?
