I couldnt have summarized it better myself, well done sir.
Shes a long the line of. Jesse Jackson,Louis Farrakhan, and Al Sharpton
She has done nothing for black people and ZERO for the country , which given her position, is suppose to be above everything. She took an oath for that!
She is guilty of sedition!
conduct or speech inciting people to rebel against the authority of a state or monarch.
I don't really agree with what Waters suggested, I don't believe she ever suggested that liberals physically assault members of the trump administration or his supporters... she most certainly didn't suggest that shoot or lynch anyone! as far as "attacking" president trump...
conservatives were pretty danged vocal when it came to opposing obama and his policies...
were they "attacking" president obama? should they have gotten threats of being shot or lynched till they ceased "attacking " him?
we now have toddlers being ordered to appear in immigration courts alone to explain why they should get asylum.
Death threats don’t phase anyone here because she “deserves” it? Really? You wanna see her hung up with all the Strange Fruit of lynchings-past??
Okay, if you want to use that literal definition, then the prisons should be filled with people from both sides of the aisle.
I’m glad you don’t support violence against her.
I missed the part where Waters called for people to be lynched? Can you link that for me?? You said “even worse crimes.” Did she want them burned at the stake?
I disagree with harassment, so we agree on that. Should Trump tone down his bullying? I think he should. But that’s me. Nothing but ugly is coming from it, though the people do cheer him on.
Especially when he riles em up with the F word and says other rather uncivil things. And when he forceably rips toddlers from their parents and then loses them “ in the system.”
If I am running a store in a rough section of town, and a big dude with a serious Italian accent walks in and demands my "insurance payment," and I ask for what and he replies, "because you don't want your little store to be in an accident. It would be a shame if a fire broke out"... well, he didn't say he would burn my place down if I didn't pay, but he certainly intended that message to be understood. In the same vein, all Maxine asked for overtly was continual harassment... her words: harassment. Harassment is illegal, normally a misdemeanor but can rise to a felony. But the implication in that was clear to me: do whatever you have to do to make Trump's cabinet quit out of fear. That certainly includes lynching and yes, even burning at the stake. She was creating an unruly mob and giving them marching orders. Just because she didn't specify what type of violence to use does not mean she did not intend for violence to be used. She certainly did. And she has celebrated violence before, even up to the point of celebrating the beating of a helpless bystander in the head with a concrete block until he suffered irreversible brain damage. Read back through the thread for specifics, or simply google "Reginald Denny Maxine Waters."
Not so, says Maxine Waters of California. Over the weekend the Democratic congresswoman told a crowd: “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!” Trump retorted on Twitter that Waters is “an extraordinarily low IQ person” and wrote threateningly: “Be careful what you wish for Max!”
Here is my main point. Take this paragraph and switch it over to Trump calling for harassment. He constantly calls the Press the Enemy of the People. He does the mafia bit “what a nice little girl. Shame if someone took her away from you at the border” all the freaking time!!!
Now lest you think I’m merely doing a whatabouism, let’s see what she said:
“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!”
You may disagree with that interpretation of events, but IF that is how Waters perceived it, if she was imagining parents and children terrorized by Trumps border policy, then one can understand a bit more WHY she said what she said, however unwise it may be.
If Trump, in the eyes of the Left, is a tyrannical bully, then standing up to the bully is a bad thing?

Sadly, when she decides to retire it's with all the amenities most of us would love to have.
Pension, health care, etc. for life.
I appreciate she has served for the public for a long time. But I would prefer she gets the same benefits we all get.
