The ridiculous buffoon, Rep Frederica Wilson (D-FL), sits on the couch with her best “Shelia Jackson Lee” fake flower on her lapel, gymnastics rings hanging from her ears and her favorite, most “dignified and professional” cowgirl dress-up hat on her head. This is “quality” individual that that represents the people of south central Florida,
While it’s easy and appropriate to completely dismiss her in view of what she is, a female, less greasy form of Rep Al Green (D-TX) and a younger, less Freddy Krueger-like version of Maxine Waters (D-CA), her comments do reveal something noteworthy about people like her.
People who immediately run to play the race card don’t always look to see if it enhances their position before throwing it down. Sometimes clowns like Wilson will reflexively grab for and play the race-joker instead.
Wilson attempts to sound reasonable and focused now that standing on the casket of the deceased soldier and ranting against President Trump’s sincerity has blown up in her face. She asks why they left him, a question that will be answered after the investigation to determine what happened and almost certainly without the cover up that accompanied the criminal acts at Benghazi. Obviously they didn’t leave him there by choice, something happened and an investigation is the only way that will be determined. She needs to shut her mouth and wait.
The rodeo clown also addresses some of the components of General Kelly’s speech which forced her into retreat. Wilson disputes what he said about her drawing attention to herself during the FBI building dedication. We could tell just by looking at her she’s not the type to seek attention.
She says that she wasn’t even in Congress in 2009, as if that is somehow evidence that she didn’t tell a lie at the time and take credit for funding that occurred prior to her arrival. The formerly vicious accuser now portrays herself as a victim, saying mean General Kelly “needs to stop telling lies on me.”
Alisyn Camerota explains the concept of an analogy to Cowgirl Frederica as she asks her about the “empty barrel” comment. She exposes herself for the race-baiting trash that she is with her response, saying, “I think that’s a racist term too, I’m thinking about that. When uh, we looked it up in the dictionary because I had never heard of an empty barrel. And I don’t like to be dragged into something like that.”
The cowgirl was never exposed to barrels on the ranch she’s from, but the concept shouldn’t need actual interaction with a barrel. Anything hollow or emptied out makes more noise than when it’s full. Has she ever held a Pepsi can? As for her automatically throwing down the race card just because she’s never heard of something, that speaks volumes to her lack of character as well.
If she had bothered to actually look it up as she claims, she’d have found multiple articles online explaining the meaning. Could she be lying again? An article from Newsweek, published after her comments, provides a good explanation but there are many more that predate her display of ignorance.
It explains, “Many credit Plato for bringing ’empty barrel’ into the vernacular: ‘An empty vessel makes the loudest sound, so they that have the least wit are the greatest babblers.’ Some believe the proverb truly has Jamaican origins, while others credit it as Spanish. A book of world proverbs gives 21 variations of the expression.”
So it was the Greek racist, Plato, who came up with that adage, or possibly the black Jamaicans, although that conflicts with the common indoctrination by folks like Wilson that only white folks can be racists. Maybe the problem lies with the Congresswoman from Florida? Get along little dogie.
