Maxine Waters Denies She's a Socialist; Chip Roy Takes Her Down with Her Own Words - WATCH

Maxine Waters was delivered a brutal blow when Congressman Chip Roy (R-TX) read her own words back to her after she denied she was a socialist.

Waters was forced to denounce her own political beliefs during the epic takedown.

The subject of the hearing was a discussion of a resolution titled “denouncing the horrors of socialism,” introduced on January 25th and sponsored by Rep. Maria Salazar (R-Fla.)

Roy confronted Waters by highlighting in her own words how she endorsed socialism.

Roy stated, “I was intrigued by an op-ed that I saw not too long ago by a Democrat from Cuba commenting on one of our colleagues, an avowed socialist [AOC], and essentially pointing out the extent to which ‘democratic socialism is a lot like the system my family fled except its proponents promised to be nicer when seizing your business.'”

“That’s the truth,” Roy remarked. “We can talk about these terms as if they don’t matter, but they do. They do matter. They’re actually at the core of who we are.”

“I’ve got one question for the ranking member,” Roy continued, glaring at Waters and his notes.

“Ranking member Waters, in a 2008 hearing, you said quote, ‘and guess what, this liberal will be all about? This liberal will be all about socializing, would be about basically taking over the government and the government running all of your companies,’ end quote” Roy said.

“Simple question: Do you stand by that statement?”

Watch

Waters argued they were taking up time on basically a non-issue” and denied socialism was happening at all.

She then claimed that she and Roy were trying to protect America’s democracy from socialist forces.

But Waters’ deflection dug her hole deep as Roy pointed out she was condemning her own words from 2008.

Waters then went on to contradict herself again:

“I’m not socialist, I’m a capitalist.”

Waters then said she just wanted to save veterans and protect seniors on Social Security and Medicare.

This did not help her escape Roy’s grip.

Roy read her words from 2008 again.

“So you disagree with that? You now denounce that statement?” asked Roy.

Waters again denied she was a socialist.

Satisfied with his victory, Roy said he appreciated the response because “one has concerns when we hear statements” like Waters’s 2008 praise of socialism.
