After Calling for Trump Supporters to Be Harassed Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters Cancels Attending Two Events After She Says She Received Increased Threats
HONESTLY, WHAT DID MAD MAX THINK THE BLOW BACK WAS GOING TO BE, OR IS THAT WHAT SHE INTENDED ALL ALONG?
I am going to preface all of this by stating, no one, and I mean no one, neither those on the LEFT or the RIGHT should be making threats of any type, whether they be death threats or any type of threat. All any of you are trying to do is shut down Freedom of Speech. Threats of any type are just that, threats. And for you low IQ individuals out there, maybe you will one day realize just how ignorant you really are. That being said, going after one’s policies or protesting a politician is fine, as long as its civil. Calling for people to harass in public, not allowing them to be welcome anywhere like restaurants, gas stations or harassing them at their home is hardly civil. Of course people have a right to civil protest; however, what we are seeing today is hardly civil. Politicians like Maxine Waters know better.
As reported at CNN, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) had to cancel attending two events after she says she has received an increase in threats in the wake of her inappropriate and ignorant comments Waters made last week where she encouraged Left-wing protesters to harass members of Trump’s Cabinet in public spaces. Rep. Waters says she canceled two scheduled appearances in Alabama and Texas this weekend after saying she got threatening messages and “hostile mail” at her office, including “one very serious death threat.” If true, this is terrible. But what did she expect when she went as low as she did and called for the harassment of Trump cabinet members and supporters in the public square? You mess with the bull and you’ll get the horn. When you call for harassment, when you tell people to create a crowd and push back on people and tell them that they are not welcome any more, any place … good grief, are you really that low IQ that you do not comprehend that you will bring out the worst on the other side? Or maybe, just maybe, that’s what the divisive Mad Max was after all along.
Rep. Maxine Waters should never receive death threats or any type of threat. I condemn those that do such a thing. Just as I condemn Maxine Waters for trying to incite her peeps to harass and make threats against people she disagrees with. To not to condemn violence and harassment would be a double standard. Actually, I hold Rep. Waters to a high standard as she is supposed to be and act like a U.S. Representative where she is referred to in the House when called on as the “Gentle Lady” from California. Her actions of late only make the last part true, she is in fact from California. I would call on all politicians to ratchet it down a bit with the fanning of flames of harassment and violence. You can’t put the genie back in the bottle. That being said, there is proportionality of levels of civility, name calling like “Crooked Hillary,”low IQ” and “Pocahontas” from President Trump is hardly the same as shouting into a bull horn firing up a rabid base saying … “And if you see anyone from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them that they are not welcome, any more, anywhere.”
So the question that needs to be asked of Rep. Waters is when she sows the seeds of such divisions and decides to be the sole arbitrator of where individuals she disagrees with are welcome or allowed … wouldn’t others who disagree with her be allowed to hold her to the same standard? Everyone just chill. We used to be able to debate civilly, yet passionately without demonizing the other side, or did we like when Democrat Rep. Alan Grayson Claims “Republicans Want You To Die?”
Maxine Waters on Trump administration: ” … you create a crowd, you push back on them.
Rep. Maxine Waters said Thursday she’s seen an increase in threats since she made controversial comments last week encouraging protesters to heckle and harass members of Trump’s Cabinet in public spaces.
The California Democrat canceled two scheduled appearances in Alabama and Texas this weekend after saying she got threatening messages and “hostile mail” at her office, including “one very serious death threat” on Monday from an individual in Texas.
“As the President has continued to lie and falsely claim that I encouraged people to assault his supporters, while also offering a veiled threat that I should ‘be careful’, even more individuals are leaving (threatening) messages and sending hostile mail to my office,” she said in a statement.
“There was one very serious death threat made against me on Monday from an individual in Texas which is why my planned speaking engagements in Texas and Alabama were cancelled (sic) this weekend,” she continued. “This is just one in several very serious threats the United States Capitol Police are investigating in which individuals threatened to shoot, lynch, or cause me serious bodily harm.”
So she is looking to harass, not protest, harass cabinet members until they can’t take it anymore in working for President Trump. This is also a bullying tactic to threaten people who might work for the President or disagree with her. This is shameful. By the way, the unconscionable way of dealing with illegal children was also done under President Obama, but Mad Max was silent during the Obama years. Imagine that.
“For these members of his Cabinet who remain and try to defend him they’re not going to be able to go to a restaurant, they’re not going to be able to stop at a gas station, they’re not going to be able to shop at a department store, the people are going to turn on them, they’re going to protest, they’re going to absolutely harass them until they decide that they’re going to tell the president ‘no I can’t hang with you, this is wrong this is unconscionable and we can’t keep doing this to children,’ ” Waters said on Saturday.
