Maxine Waters, currently embroiled in House ethics investigations for her illegal activity, as noted her yesterday, again is in the news.
Yesterday some of her aides got tossed from a Pelosi event due to their boorish behavior.
But that’s not what prompted this post.
I am sick and tired of voters putting into office as representatives of We the People, morons who are fundamentally incapable of expressing themselves publicly in grammatical English.
“It ain’t about Nancy.” Please.
Are we so immature, so ignorant, so un-schooled a people that we elect as our representatives to the most powerful government in the history of mankind people who cannot construct and speak a grammatical sentence? Or who, assuming that they CAN do so, do not feel the need to do so, thereby continuing in their communities the idea that it is OK for their LEADERS to be ignorant – and to express their ignorance publicly?
Can anyone image Kennedy, Truman, WEB DuBois, George Washington… speaking in such a way as to demonstrate their idiocy in the public square?
This is not the first time, however, nor is it the most egregious. Several years back, “Kerosene Maxine,” as she is referred to by an LA-based talk radio host also from South Central, went on the rampage about “ebonics,” saying, “my people can’t learn” by being expected to speak and understand normal, grammatical English.
The paternalistic insult to African Americans was enormous, but they were OK with that and have continued to vote her into office as their representative, evidently totally clueless of the fact that the American people will NEVER take seriously anyone who insists on a Maxine Waters as their representative.
How on earth Blacks think they EVER will be hired into the professional world speaking ebonics, or mimicing their mentor’s public disgracing of herself, is completely beyond all thinking people.
If people refuse to educate themselves, they have no business drawing on the fruits of others’ labors.
… but you’re right, Maxine.. “it ain’t about Nancy.” It’s about YOU.
