Count Rep. Maxine Waters among those politicians who saw “U.S. government cowboys on horses” — also known as Border Patrol agents — whipping Haitian migrants “fleeing violence,” although as Townhall’s Julio Rosas reports, most of the Haitians arriving en masse at the border had been settled in countries like Chile and Brazil for years before making the trek north.
Haitians fleeing violence & the lack of a credible government in Haiti are being treated like animals. U.S. government cowboys on horses used whips on Haitians as they sought refuge. Why are we following the Trump policies? This horrendous treatment of Haitians must STOP NOW.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hasn’t been to the international bridge in Del Rio, Texas to cry at the conditions, but she did retweet Waters.
Again, *zero* evidence that any of the border patrol agents had whips much less used them. But the narrative is off and running pic.twitter.com/MQQO26g9QY

On Wednesday, Waters braved the rain to give a press conference in which she said that what we witnessed was worse than slavery.

Just when you think Maxine can't possibly say something more moronic than she said yesterday, she ups her game.

She witnessed neither since she wasn't there for either.

How is she still even relevant? I mean I get that she was around during slavery, but her memory has once again failed her. I think slavery was pretty bad, at least that's what I learned in my school.
Do her people in her district even know who she is/ what she says/ does?

So she's saying slavery wasn't that bad?

A guy on a horse grabbed another guy by his T-shirt. It’s right there on camera.
Based on that statement, slavery wasn’t all that bad then. Either historians have been lying to us for decades, or you have. Which one is it?
— John Doe (@ConsrvFolsomDad) September 22, 2021
So is her position that slavery wasn’t really that bad.
It would be worse to be corralled by a cowboy on horseback.
Interesting position. I actually thought slavery was much worse, but I guess she lived through it.

The sad thing is, people are dumb enough to believe her because they simply don’t know history.. it’s nuts how far in life you can get while being uneducated.

Maxine Waters is easily the most ridiculous member of Congress.
She should be endlessly & unmercifully mocked.
— King Tired af (@KingLassitude) September 22, 2021
FAR worse than slavery ever was! Just like voter ID laws are a return to Jim Crow. These Dems sure have a way with words. It's an utterly ridiculous and incindiary way, but it's a way. #Americareins

Everything today is worse than slavery according to this person 😂
— Bob (@bob198714) September 22, 2021
She does know that slaves were brought here against their will, and these Haitians are making the trip voluntarily because they want to be here, right?
Just when I think I 've heard the dumbest thing ever to come out of that big mouth, she proves me wrong.
— Big Z (@JackSchmitter) September 22, 2021
What an absolute lunatic

That is the most insulting thing I’ve heard in a long time! She needs to go!
— maria feldman (@mariafeldman14) September 22, 2021
That’s gross. But she’ll never be ashamed.

No, I heard J6 is the worst thing that ever happened in America. Ever.
— ColbysBack (@ColbysBack) September 22, 2021
Since the Civil War at least.
Good to see she at least knows where the southern border is. Been awhile since anything came out of her mouth in regards to it.
— Tyler David (@tylerfunk14) September 22, 2021
Yet another ridiculous and incorrect comparison by a democrat trying to make a headline and gaslight folks and move attention away from the actual problem, which is that what’s going on at the border is a pure sh*tshow and it’s 1000% her party’s fault, starting with Biden…👣👊

This is what happens when you reward lying and stupidity with political power.

I think her wig is on too tight.
— Cis Lord Sexypants (@Jayinnj75) September 22, 2021
This is just unbelievable. We’re so glad there’s video because we wouldn’t believe that even Waters would say something so outrageous.
