Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said Wednesday at a House Financial Services Committee hearing that people on the internet are trying to kill her.
The focus of the hearing was primarily centered around the financial aspects of terror plots, especially those that are deemed to be small-scale or “lone-wolf” threats, PJ Media noted.
Waters took advantage of the opportunity at the hearing and linked the KKK, white supremacists, and extremists to the “alt-right."
"I think we should focus a lot on domestic terrorism also,” Waters said. “So I would like to ask again, given all that you have said about how difficult it is and the privacy concerns, do you have any thoughts about what we can do to begin to deal with the KKK, the white nationalists, the — the extremists, the alt-right?"
Waters then ratcheted up her normal level of crazy — the level where she claims "Russia is invading North Korea" — by stating, without evidence, that right-wing media is trying to kill her.
"They're on the internet, Breitbart, if you look at YouTube, you see how much they want to kill me and others. What can we do? Anybody, any one of you," Waters said.
Waters — whose only purpose seems to be calling for President Donald Trump’s impeachment — is no stranger to making ridiculous remarks.
In mid-August, Waters lumped two members of President Trump’s administration — African American HUD Secretary Ben Carson and Jewish Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin — in with KKK members and Nazis.
Waters, who previously called President Trump’s cabinet a “bunch of scumbags,” said in early August on ABC’s The View that she was “so glad” that people are leaking damaging information on the Trump administration and that she doesn’t care if the leak information jeopardizes national security.
