Maxine Waters Declares War on Civility

In case Maxine Waters is unaware (and that seems to be a permanent condition for the California congresswoman), it is against the law in most places to harass people. But then, in pursuit of public confrontation, the radical left has never had much respect for the rule-of-law in general or peaceful protests specifically.

We have seen media personalities, like Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski call for lawyers and protestors to flood the area around immigration detention centers. Joe Lockhart, former White House Press Secretary for President Bill Clinton, used his media appearance to say opponents of Trump should “take to the streets.”

They are summoning to action those on the radical left who I have dubbed as the “perma-pissed.” They can be counted on to –as Lockhart suggests– take to the streets upon the least whim or command. We will undoubtedly see more confrontation – and maybe even some violence – as the radical left once again takes the law into their own hands.

So, what about Maxine Waters?

Whenever there is a call to do something improper, destructive or stupid for perceived political gain, you can count on Waters to get out in front with the most improper, destructive and stupid suggestions. You only need to remember her call for impeachment even before Trump took office. She has now embraced, endorsed and promoted criminal bullying and harassment.

In her most over-the-top rhetoric, Waters has called on the more deranged elements of the Democrat coalition to seek out and angrily confront every Trump administration official they can find. In her call-to-“harms,” Waters has declared that no identifiable Trump supporter will be safe in public.

According to Waters, “Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And if you see anybody 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 they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.” Hmmm. Does that sound disturbingly like what her Democrat predecessors did to black folks in Dixie?

Make no mistake about it, Waters & Co. can motivate that relatively small group of irrational haters and emotionally unstable to heed the call. We have seen it with the harassment of White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and White House Senior Advisor Stephen Miller. We have seen those who blocked buses carrying illegal border crossers.

It is important to keep in mind that it does not take a lot of people to create a lot of havoc and chaos – especially when the #NeverTrump media will give them massive favorable coverage. That “massive” demonstration at the border was the product of fewer than 200 people. Hell, I can sometimes get that as an audience for one of my speeches.

As inappropriate as the congresswoman’s repetitious remarks may be, Democrats will not repudiate them. Appearing on CNN, New York Democrat Congressman Adriano Espaillat called Waters “an outstanding member of Congress and a great woman.” In a backhanded admission that what Waters said is awful, Espaillat avoided responding to what Waters said by saying, “We should not be trapped into these side stories.” If the media did not “get trapped into these side stories,” our news reports would be back to five minutes at the top of the hour.

We can all take comfort in the fact that these kinds of actions generally backfire. That is why a number of Democrats, unlike Espaillat, are distancing themselves from Waters. They know that she is moving votes to the GOP. Carry on, Maxine!

    It’s amazing what the Leftist elite can get away with. I almost feel sorry for them. They’ve allowed themselves to be led down the garden path and there’s no way out.
    I’m resting on the fact that it sure seems like the Rapture is near and I thank the good Lord everyday that my trust is in Him and not in men.
