FLASHBACK: Maxine Waters Once Said She Wants To “Socialize” America’s Oil Companies (VIDEO)

This is why the left loves Maxine Waters. Just like Bernie Sanders, she’s a socialist. Back in 2008, she was at a congressional hearing with some oil executives and she accidentally showed her true stripes.

Judicial Watch reported:

Maxine Waters Wants To Socialize Oil Companies

A California lawmaker who got a communist dictator to harbor a cop-murdering Black Panther fugitive and accused the CIA of selling crack cocaine in black neighborhoods has become the laughing stock of Congress for threatening to nationalize the oil industry.

California’s most influential black lawmaker, Democrat Representative Maxine Waters, made the threat during recent congressional hearings with oil company executives. She said the federal government would take over their industry if they failed to do something to stop the escalating price of gasoline.

Waters told the president of a major oil company to “guess what this liberal would be all about? This liberal would be all about socializing — uh, uh, would be about basically taking over and the government running all of your companies.” One renowned commentator, who said Waters made an absolute total fool of herself, points out that the congresswoman’s associates can be heard laughing in the video of the embarrassing exchange.
