In a shocking display of common sense, Check Schumer criticized the current trend of encouraging harassment against political opponents.


Senator Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, strongly disagreeing with the public statements of Rep. Maxine Waters, went on the Senate floor and declared "no one should call for the harassment of political opponents."

"That's not right," he said, "that's not American."

He added: "I strongly disagree with those who advocate harassing folks if they don't agree with you. If you disagree with someone or something, stand up, make your voice heard, explain why you think they're wrong, and why you're right."

Great to see. Even more surprising is CNN reporting it.

Looks like Chuck drew the short straw.

Be very very careful what we believe coming from Schumer.

He has turned on his word many times in the past.

Maybe he calms a few people down in public, but watch out.

Pelosi said something similar today too, but still blamed Trump.

These Democrats Leaders are desperate.

Desperate Democrats can't be trusted at their word.

Just look at the "War on Poverty" (aka the 50 Years War).

Normally, a Mud-Pit topic is allowed as a "2nd".

Yeah, we shouldn't condone harassing of people with differing political views.

If we do protest it should be a specific policy or something we want to change, but even that should have some common decency.

I am seeing this a lot from the Democrats...not really the true leftists or progressives...you don't see this kind of harrassment from, let's say the green party. Not at this level? I could be wrong. It's like the democratic party went nuts, yet still is a corporate party.

They even harrass their own candidates or those demecratic candidates that aren't directly endorsed by the DNC>

So ... if the other Democrats dont' say anything, they agree with Waters ...

... and if they do criticize her words, they're lying?

Does that sum it up?

That is what it appears to be.

Yes.
Completely illogical.
I do not understand it. Everybody should have condemed what she said, in harsher words than Chuck.

I think it was right (and necessary) of them (Pelosi & Schumer) to condemn her speech.
Nothing good for their party will come of any violence resulting from Waters' words.
...and the potential is definitely there.

It was a smart and potentially preemptive move.

In SC Rally just now...Trump said "THIS (Democrat Party) has become the Party of Maxine Waters and Nancy Pelosi!"

Pelosi and Schumer do not want their party to become associated with Maxine.

Oh, I know Schumer did the math and decided on his official response ... it just happened to be the rare occasion when a politically calculated statement coincided with the upstanding human thing to do.

If they wanted to do the next right thing they’d censure Waters at the least ... strip her of committees and let her sit and adjust that horrid wig all day.

I just wish our friends were as scrutinizing when it came to the other side of the coin ...

Nobody would.
Nobody wants it associated with Pelosi or Schumer either.
Better get to going on electing likable people.

Pick your platitude, whether genie out of a bottle or toothpaste out of a tube, the krakens have been unleashed. If things continue to escalate, I'm sure Chuck and CNN will be relieved they disavowed any violence.

It will give them something to pontificate about after the blood is fowing.
