On the more conservative side of American politics, one of the national figures we like to lampoon is the representative for California’s 43rd district, Maxine Waters. The 43rd district itself is in Los Angeles and is one of those places humans should only visit in their nightmares.
No decent human being should have to live in such a place.
Isn’t that illegal?
And then Collins takes the viewer on a tour of South Los Angeles and what Mad Maxine avoids.
It turns out Water’s challenger, a Navy veteran, survived a drive-by shooting as a child and learned to live around gangs and the social pathologies that come with them. As this young gentleman explains, Waters does not want to live with the consequences of her own policies.
“She has a very nice community, she has a really big house – and that’s just one of three or four houses that she has,” Collins said. “And meanwhile, she comes to the inner city and preaches the message of hatred and a message of us vs. them.”
“And when she’s done spreading the hate through our community, she goes back to this huge mansion while the rest of us live in crime-infested, poverty, neighborhoods where people are absolutely struggling to live,” he added.
After forty-four years in Congress, Maxine Waters’s constituents have seen no improvement in their neighborhood’s condition. Her challenger has an uphill fight to unseat her. At least he is willing to show the world what decades of neglect do in the inner cities.
