Shut up and sing! Maxine Waters scolds Kanye like a child ‘perhaps needs assistance to formulate his thoughts’

Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters slammed Kanye West for supporting President Donald Trump, saying the music icon should basically shut up and sing.

“Kanye West is a very creative young man who has presented some of the most revolutionary material in the African-American community, but we also think that sometimes Kanye West talks out of turn and perhaps he needs some assistance in helping him to formulate some of his thoughts,” Waters told Politico.

Waters made the condescending remarks this week at a meeting with the Congressional Black Caucus in Oakland, California.

She continued: “We don’t think that he actually means to do harm, but we’re not sure he really understands the impact of what he’s saying…how that weighs on the African-American community and for young people in general. I think maybe he should think twice about politics, and maybe not have so much to say.”

As BizPac Review previously reported, Maxine Waters’ career highlights include being rated one of the “most corrupt” members of Congress in 2005, 2006, and 2008 by the George Soros-funded liberal watchdog CREW (Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington).

In 2008, Waters was charged with three counts of ethical violations after allegedly helping OneUnited Bank secure $12 million in federal bailout funds while hiding the fact that her husband owned stock in the bank.

In doling out her “shut-up-and-sing” advice to Kanye, Maxine Waters mirrored the language of Fox News host Laura Ingraham, who suggested that Trump-bashing NBA star LeBron James stick to playing basketball.

Immediately after those remarks, liberals viciously attacked Ingraham as a racist and pressured her sponsors to stop advertising on her show, as BizPac Review has reported. Several advertisers did drop Ingraham, but she got the last laugh when she dominated the ratings in the wake of the failed attempt to censor her.

Predictably, liberals said nothing about Maxine Waters’ attempt to infringe Kanye’s First Amendment right to free speech. Ironically, West lives in California — which Waters represents — so she should be protecting his constitutional rights more than anyone else since he’s a constituent of a neighboring district.

Kanye has also been trashed by “tolerant liberals” for expressing his support for President Trump.

“You don’t have to agree with Trump but the mob can’t make me not love him,” West tweeted. “He is my brother. I love everyone. I don’t agree with everything anyone does. That’s what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought.”

Like his pal Donald Trump, Kanye West does not back down in the face of criticism, even from his supposed “fans.”

Like Trump, Kanye merely double-downed on his initial statements, saying he will not be manipulated or silenced by liberals who don’t agree with his opinions.

West also dropped some inconvenient truth bombs about Barack Obama, whom he previously supported.

Kanye, who hopes to embody the post-racial America that everyone thought Obama would usher in, said it is time to stop focusing on identity politics and be free-thinking individuals.

“We are programmed to always talk and fight race issues. We need to update our conversation,” he tweeted.

West recounted how slave masters used to cut out the tongues of slaves to silence them, and said he will not be silenced by liberals who want him to censor his opinions.

“They cut out our tongues so we couldn’t communicate to each other,” Kanye tweeted. “I will not allow my tongue to be cut.”
