Aug 22, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: NewsBusters.org

Yesterday, at a high school gym in Inglewwood, California, at what was billed as a "Kitchen Table Summit," as seen in a video currently showing at both MRC-TV and Breitbart , Congresswoman Maxine Waters said, "As far as I'm concerned, the Tea Party can go straight to hell." The crowd, reportedly "more than 2,000 people," cheered her statement.

"Congresswoman Maxine Waters said, "As far as I'm concerned, the Tea Party can go straight to hell." The crowd, reportedly "more than 2,000 people," cheered her statement."

When the majority of US voters is going to cheer, we'll have an issue. What she said is simply obvious for everybody outside the USA.

i would say that Tea party is already a way to hell but tea-partiers won't go to hell by themselves. Americans as a whole have to kick them out in the trashbin of history the quicker the better.

Perhaps she fears that if those who know and follow the law were in any power, her own illegal activities may actually be dealt with.

Interesting that those dems feel the need to throw around gutter talk. Those who wish to limit government and follow existing laws (Tea Party) do not refer to her or her party in that fashion.

Just goes to show - quality vx immature guilty

It's inevetiable. The Tea Party's views are reactionary and all of their precepts haven't worked to radically reduced poverty at all.

LMAO, "The Tea party Can Go Straight To Hell", eh?

Does anyone else find it ironic that she made this statement standing in a state that has done just that due to democrat party fiscal incompetence?

What is obvious to folks inside the USA and around the world is that France is well on the way to losing her character and becoming an insolvent, third world cesspool, due to the socialist policies she is pursuing.

Ironically these are the same policies Maxine Waters subscribes to.

That is why she and most of her party will be sent home in 2012.

Would you please list one by one the reasons you hate the tea party and what their end result would be if they were to get into power?

Where has austerity worked long term? The fundamental point is that megabanks are hoarding trillions of dollars and they aren't spending it to even seek to create job growth. Many corporations are using outsourcing overseas and these issues are exacerbated by unfair trade deals and the excesses of globalization. Why are you talking about France? Sarkozy isn’t progressive on every issue. French President Nicolas Sarkozy has announced a series of deeply anti-democratic measures, including the persecution and deportation of Roma, the prosecution of the parents of young ‘offenders,’ and a proposed law enabling to government to strip immigrants of their French nationality. France wants a balanced budget rule in their constitution too. France’s economic problems existed because of complex reasons. Denmark, Norway, Sweden, etc. have strong public works systems and follow policies opposite of the Tea Party’s fiscal agenda. Yet, they aren’t experiencing extreme insolvency issues at all. The false god of neoliberal economic ideology doesn’t work to create economic growth. You need some spending and some investments (from both the private and public sectors) to create economic growth. That isn’t a sin and it’s found even in the Constitution that the Tea partiers claim to love so much. Economic issues have been caused by privatization, corporate corruption, Wall Street speculation in the derivatives market, and other reactionary policies. Maxine Waters’ anger is directed to the Tea Party. The Tea Party hypocritically abhor government spending, but most of them rely on Social Security, Medicare, and other government program to help their existence. They hypocritically hate government intrusion yet Bachmann has been found to receive tons of government funds in her daily life. The policies of ending the war on terror, having populist economic policies, and defending the civil liberties of human rights can work wonders for human beings in general.

Though this post is directed to Z- I want to say that I believe all "the parties" in the limelight have become the same. They may say slightly different things and try to appeal to different people's core beliefs and/or fears, but when they are in office they all continue down the same exact road- continuing to escalte things that are already wrong. This has been going on for deades.

It's difficult for a handful of people to reduce poverty when the POTUS and majority in congress are working to increase poverty.

That's why I don't understand why people get excited about one political party and villify another at this point. They may agree more with what one is saying- or their supposed philosophy- but they are just acting and putting on a show. People keep playing into it. We have to reach a point where most see that this is the reality before there is a chance of anything getting done. We have a heavy boot on our necks.

If any were serious about reducing poverty they would get rid of the Federal Reserve and enact policies to bring back jobs- for starters. Some drastic things have to be done- but they serve other masters, not us.

I think we're under a dictatorship as it is and it's not taking us anywhere that's good. I'm not saying it started with Obama but it continues on and escalates rapidly as he is President.

Actually, I don't know the Tea Party people's platform for the most part. I know that much of their talk is to lower taxes, cut various forms of Federal spending, bring down the deficit and have less general intrusion of the government. What else is in their agenda?
