But the worst part about this whole issue is “Auntie Maxine” is now busy pleading for people to stop attacking her. She is claiming people are threatening her by saying she should ‘be careful’ and even more individuals are leaving threatening messages and sending hostile mail to her office.
Here is more on this via Right Wing News:
“There was one very serious d***h threat made against me on Monday from an individual in Texas which is why my planned speaking engagements in Texas and Alabama were canceled (sic) this weekend. This is just one in several very serious threats the United States Capitol Police is investigating in which individuals threatened to shoot, lynch, or cause me serious bodily harm.”
“I believe in peaceful, very peaceful protests,” she said Monday on Capitol Hill. “I have not called for the harm of anybody. This President has lied again when he’s saying that I’ve called for harm.” First of all, she did encourage her followers to assault and harass Trump supporters. There’s plenty of videos out there showing exactly that. To say it was anything less than that is extremely disingenuous. Second, Trump was not threatening her. He was warning her that she was coming perilously close to being in trouble with the feds for threatening Trump and conservative Americans. If she is indeed receiving d***h threats, she brought that on herself. I don’t condone it and they need to be stopped, but she knew what she was inciting when she started all of this.
In fact, the California Democrat doubled down again and urged supporters to continue to intimidate Trump administration members when they are spotted in public. Waters knows exactly where that leads. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen had their dinners interrupted at separate restaurants by people who disagreed with President Trump’s “zero tolerance” immigration policies. “If you think we’re rallying now you ain’t seen nothing yet! If you see anybody from that [Trump] 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,” Waters shouted at a Los Angeles rally last weekend.
“Here we were getting the country focused on kids being separated from their parents as a matter of border policy, and I think we were making enormous gains in that national debate,” said Democratic congressman Gerry Connolly of Virginia. “So I don’t want to see us distracted by calls to deny retail services to targeted members of the Trump administration. I think that’s unhelpful.” That’s soft-balling the issue. It’s not distraction or unhelpful when Waters calls for people to attack conservatives; it’s incitement to violence. Trump supporters are worried about being beaten or k****d in the streets because of her rhetoric.
President Trump shot back, saying Waters “called for harm” to his supporters. “Congresswoman Maxine Waters, an extraordinarily low IQ person, has become, together with Nancy Pelosi, the Face of the Democrat Party. She has just called for harm to supporters, of which there are many, of the Make America Great Again movement. Be careful what you wish for Max!” Again, that’s not a threat, that’s a warning her that if there is violence, she will have to answer for it.”
