Remember When Maxine Waters Said She Wanted to “Socialize” and “Take Over” All Oil Companies? (Video)
Socialist Democrat Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) has become the poster child for liberal stupidity in her continued crusade to impeach Donald Trump without a shred of evidence, except her feelings. While many have called Trump and his supporters Nazis, which were National Socialists, let me remind you that Waters is the one that has claimed to be a Socialist and said she would love to “take over” all oil companies.
A slip of the tongue revealed the true intentions of Maxine Waters during a house hearing in 2008 grilling oil executives including John Hofmeister, President of Shell Oil Company.
Waters referred to herself as a “liberal” and wanted assurances from Hofmeister that prices would go down for consumers if oil companies were allowed to drill off the shores of the united States.
“I can guarantee to the American people, because of the inaction of the United States Congress, ever-increasing prices unless the demand comes down,” Hoffmeister said.
He added that paying $5 at the pump “will look like a very low price in the years to come if we are prohibited from finding new reserves, new opportunities to increase supplies.”
Waters responded, in part, “And guess what this liberal would be all about. This liberal will be about socializing … uh, um. …”
At that point, it was clear she was letting the cat out of the bag about what the agenda of people like herself actually is. It is the same thing we have been warning about for years. They have done it in the area of healthcare in our country. They have socialized it. Furthermore, now we can’t even get rid of it without some socializing by those who claim to be conservatives! Remember, many of today’s conservatives are yesterday’s liberals.
“Would be about, basically, taking over, and the government running all of your companies. …” Waters finally spewed forth.
I don’t know that was any better than saying she wanted to socialize.
Clearly, the man and woman next to her seem to be either panicking or laughing to keep from panicking as the senile woman from California can’t seem to get her socialism straight. The video really is a revelation of the true identity of one of our nations’ liberal Socialist Democrat representatives.
Keep this in mind when you hear her blather in the coming days.
