Empathy is a concept Democrats weaponize to advance their political agenda.
This by no means implies that Democrats are actually emphatic in any real way.
This overwhelming fact is proven over and over again in elite liberal circles — the instances are simply too numerous to name here.
However, the most recent example of liberal heartlessness involved the Democrat Party’s most unhinged member — Rep. Maxine Waters.
The California Democrat warned a reporter not to share footage of her exchange where she told a group of homeless people to “go home.”

Los Angeles Times investigative reporter Connor Sheets reported an incident where homeless people confronted Waters at an event amid confusion in obtaining Section 8 housing vouchers. The event was held by the advocacy group Fathers and Mothers Who Care.
The group told the attendees they would only be able to provide information and enter an emergency housing database, the outlet reported.
“I want everybody to go home,” Waters told the crowd.
“We ain’t got no home! That’s why we’re here,” one person exclaimed.
“Where the hell we going to go to?” someone said.

Water said “nothing” would happen that day and vowed to meet with the Los Angeles Housing Service Authority (LAHSA) to assist them. One person complained that Waters’ office had denied meeting requests to discuss housing issues.
“There’s nobody in Washington that works for the people any fucking harder than I do!” Waters snapped. “I don’t want to hear it.”
A person in the crowd pleaded for Waters to work with her to house people, to which the representative replied she assists people in need of housing everyday. She again told the people to “go home” and that there were no new vouchers.
When Sheets reached out to Waters concerning the incident, the lawmaker tried to convince him not to publish the story, the LA Times reported.
“You’ll hurt yourself and the community trying to put this together without background,” Waters warned. “I don’t want you to start trying to write it, you won’t understand it.”
A separate event was held Tuesday, where several homeless citizens stood in line for several hours to receive their vouchers, though the door remained closed throughout most of the day, the outlet reported.
Liberal empathy is a joke. If you really want to help homeless people, create a political and economic environment in which it’s easier to earn a decent living. Certainly do not keep impoverished people addicted to handouts from the federal government, which has been the Democrats’ plan for decades now.
