What should be the consequence for an elected representative calling for open hostility against the members of a presidential administration? One would think it would be charges of incitement at a minimum, but certainly a loss of their elected position . . . unless the person calling for such was a Democrat.
As reported by the Washington Times:
“Rep. Maxine Waters, California Democrat, called for total social warfare against the entire Trump administration, cheering on those who in recent days have attacked or rebuffed them at restaurants and their homes, and calling for more in that vein. “Let’s stay the course, let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up,” she said at a speech, the video of which was posted Sunday on social media by conservatives. She said all Trump administration officials should not be allowed anywhere in public.“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 any more, anywhere,” she told the cheering crowd.”
Yes, there is a reason why I call her “Mad Max.” Imagine if a Republican member of Congress had said anything near this in reference to members of the Obama administration? Doggone, Joe Wilson shouted out, “you lie” — and we now know appropriately so — and was brow-beaten. We know that leftist rhetoric led to a crazed progressive socialist gunman to fire upon GOP members practicing for a baseball game.
Civility? No, this is the face of the American left, and the fact that a sitting member of Congress can make such a public statement, and be well received, should alarm us all.
However, this will not end well for the left, as anyone that feels threatened has a right to self-defense in the United States. This is a very dangerous game being played. The moment someone is hurt, or injured, of course the liberal progressive media will try to shift the blame. This is how, throughout history, the leftists have operated since their inception. It is all about intimidation, coercion, threats, and yes, violence.
Robert De Niro’s ugly speech at the Tony Awards last Sunday, and now this. Let me ask, who are the real Nazis?
Well, I suspect that sales of firearms will surge this week. And, the efforts of those anti-gun leftists will certainly not be successful now, since the progressive socialist left is calling for open warfare. One must accept that this is an official stance of the Democrat party since it is from a Democrat Congressional Representative. I wonder how many Democrats will be asked if they agree with Rep. Waters or will they demand her resignation?
It’s simple folks: the left has not accepted their loss in the November 2016 presidential election. They cannot wait until 2020. As a matter of fact, they cannot wait until November 2018.
There is one immediate response to this, vote them out and into a permanent minority status. The other response: be alert and defend yourselves . . . which is your unalienable right: life.
