Maxine Waters on Deaths and Crimes at Occupy Protests: ‘That’s Life and It Happens’~NOT TEA PARTIES!
CNS News ^ | 11/16/11 | Edwin Mora

Posted on 11/16/2011 1:43:44 PM PST by Clint N. Suhks

When asked to comment Wednesday about the deaths and crimes that have occurred around Occupy protests being held across the country, Rep. Maxine Waters said “that’s life and it happens.”

“That’s a distraction from the goals of the protesters,” Waters, who says she supports the Occupy movement, told CNSNews.com after an event at the Capitol sponsored by the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

“Let me just say this: Anytime you have a gathering, homeless people are going to show up,” said Waters. “They will find some comfort in having some other people out on the streets with them. They’re looking for food. Often times, the criminal element will invade. That’s life and it happens, whether it’s with protesters or other efforts that go on in this country.

“So I’m not deterred in my support for them because of these negative kinds of things,” said Waters. “I just want them to work at doing the best job that they can do to bring attention to this economic crisis and the unfairness of the system at this time.”

The Associated Press reported that there have been at least three deaths recently at or near Occupy encampments. A man was shot and killed near the scene of the Occupy camp in Oakland, Calif. A man reportedly shot himself at the Occupy camp in Burlington, Vt. And a man was discovered dead in a tent at the Salt Lake City, Utah, Occupy camp.

At the Occupy L.A. site—in the city where Rep. Waters' congressional district is located—five people have been charged with crimes, according to the Los Angeles Times. These include a man who allegedly exposed himself and masturbated in the presence of children.

In contrast to her support of the Occupy movement, Rep. Waters has been sharply criticial of the Tea Party movement. In August, according to the Washington Post, she said, “As far as I’m concerned, the ‘Tea Party’ can go straight to hell.”

Maxine is so stone cold ~ one of the pukes shot at Obama inside the White House and she's not particularly concerned. "That's life" she says.

I think we've got the campaign material we need for her next election ~ "Maxine Says Shooting Obama Just One Of Those Things".

That seems to be the default position of libs who are trying to defend the madness that is OWS. I heard one even say “there are rapes and murders that go on every day in this country anyway” and that the OWSers are just basically a microcosm of society (but I don’t think they used the word ‘microcosm’.)

I sat in front of Maxine flying from DC to LA a couple years ago and she was on the airline phone talking to her kids, friends, chit chat to whomever, the entire 5 hour trip. I’ll bet that bill was in the thousands of dollars.

Then the opposite must be true.

Tea Partiers are a ‘microcosm’ of law abiding up right patriotic citizens.

Great, they can camp out in Maxine Waters' front yard.

That's life and it happens.

“...~one of the pukes shot at Obama inside the White House and she’s not particularly concerned. ‘That’s’ life she says.”

Translation:
“Sheeeaaaat, Beeaatch! I be from South Central L.A. Brothas and sistas be shooting through windas every damn day. That be life. Know what I’m sayin’? Barry gots to man up, keep it real, comin’ correct and stop hiding behind bullet proof glass. Know what I’m sayin? We di’int come here; We was brung here! Now, where da hell id my gubmint check?!”

In all seriousness, certainly not all, or even a majority of “African Americans” are like that, but Maxine Waters, Sheila Jackson Lee, Charlie Rangel, Jesse Jackson (Sr. and Jr.), Al Sharpton, Barack Obama and many more “African American” legislators and bearucrats are what you get when you assign Congressional districts to areas that are solely populated by a government educated, government supported, feral, inner-city population.

Gargabe in, garbage out.

I'm guessing that if “life happened” to her in the form of one of these crimes she would be a little more perturbed.

If the TEA Party stooped to even one or two of these crimes, she'd be the first one to call for 24 hour coverage on all the Leftist-controlled networks!

“Let me just say this: Anytime you have a gathering, homeless people are going to show up,” said Waters. “They will find some comfort in having some other people out on the streets with them. They’re looking for food. Often times, the criminal element will invade. That’s life and it happens, whether it’s with protesters or other efforts that go on in this country.”

LIAR! The OWS mob are the criminal element. She would NOT be making these excuses if it was the TEA Party!

Strange that she should condemn the mostly God-fearing TEA Partiers and supporting the Country-destroying, defecating, Anti-American, pro-Communist, rapist, child porn addicts:

“As far as I’m concerned, the ‘Tea Party’ can go straight to hell.”

Is it possible for a Congressman to utter more moronic statements than this imbecile? She so thoroughly demeans the U.S. Congress with her "intellect."

"Anytime you have a gathering, homeless people are going to show up"
Yeah, just look at all the bums who showed up on 9/12/10:

Man, I would have poked my eardrums out if I had your seat. Or maybe tried to open the door on the aircraft.

Her constituents are so poor and she lives like she’s entitled.

Makes you sick.
