Maxine Waters Calls for Physical Confrontation of Trump Officials

Political discourse regarding our immigration policy has disintegrated into a potentially dangerous situation, with Congresswoman Maxine Waters’ fiery speech over the weekend, calling for physical confrontation towards those within the Trump Administration and supporters of his “zero tolerance” immigration policy.

The incendiary and provoking tirade followed on the heels of several attacks on Republican officials. These include White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders being harassed and told to leave a restaurant on Friday and Florida’s Attorney General Pam Bondi being followed and harassed by a mob of demonstrators as she and her husband left a movie theater.

In fact, over the weekend 3 Republican officials were physically confronted and verbally assaulted in public spaces.

Bondi claimed, on “Fox & Friends”, that one protester actually spit at her stating, “Now I can’t say that was intentional because he was yelling so loud, I don’t know if it was just him spewing out of his mouth,” she said.

This brings us back to Congresswoman Waters calling for a physical confrontation of Trump officials at an outdoor gathering on Saturday, “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. Tell them they’re not welcome any more, anywhere!”

Waters continued inciting her supporters shouting, “We’re gonna win this battle, because while you try and quote the Bible, Jeff Sessions and others, you really don’t know the Bible. God is on our side, on the side of the children. On the side of what’s right. On the side of what’s honorable. On the side of understanding that if we can’t protect the children, we can’t protect anybody. ”

She concluded her speech by encouraging those in attendance to continue physically confronting Trump officials within their personal lives, similar to what was done to White House Press Security Sanders on Friday and to DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, earlier last week at a Washington, D.C. restaurant.

However, her call for physical confrontations caught the attention of leaders within both parties, forcing Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Monday to take to the Senate floor attempting to rein in Waters saying, “I strongly disagree with those who advocate harassing folks if they don’t agree with you. … No one should call for the harassment of political opponents. That’s not right. That’s not American.”

GOP lawmakers, however, weren’t so forgiving, introducing a measure by Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs on Monday, that would censure the unhinged progressive loon and asking her to resign for inciting the potential for violent confrontation.

Briggs went on to say that Waters’ comments do “not become somebody who’s in Congress” and warrant disciplinary action.

“So we just introduced it, we have some cosponsors, but what she did was to basically incite people to come after and attack members of the president’s cabinet,” the Arizona Republican told The Hill. “And also spread that out to more people.”

“Everybody agrees that it was just highly objectionable what she did,” he added.

Waters’ comments on Saturday were so egregious and worrisome, especially within this climate of deep political division that the President’s aids and staff members are being advised by security experts to arm themselves.

Law professor John Banzhaf and Crime Prevention Research Center’s John Lott are advising public officials and staff members within the Trump Administration to get guns and/or concealed carry permits for their own personal protection.

Banzhaf speaking to the Washington Examiner regarding Waters’ unhinged rants said, “High-level officials in the Trump administration, especially if their faces are likely to be recognized by many in the public as a result of appearances on TV, might want to consider applying for a license to carry a concealed weapon in the District of Columbia, and/or other states they frequent, in view of the call by Rep. Maxine Waters for the public to “absolutely harass” these officials in public places, and other recent events indicating the increased danger they are in.”

Lott also observed, “There are simply not enough police in D.C. or Virginia or Maryland to protect all Trump officials at their homes and when they go out to restaurants. Getting a concealed handgun permit would be helpful to protect themselves and their family.”

  1. This piece of Liberal Garbage has to be from California

  2. Usually, I wait for others to reply to articles and then respond, but this article was so predictable that I decided to just go ahead and have at it.

    While I believe that Ms. Waters was totally wrong in her outburst and “recommendations”, I can’t help but take note of the inaccuracies and other problems of this article, beginning with the very first sentence. “Political discourse…has disintegrated into a potentially dangerous situation” NOT since Ms Waters made her incendiary statements a few days ago, but when Donald Trump encouraged attendees at a rally in 2015 to throw people out of the place. It began when he encouraged people to “attack” the press. It began when he said he could shoot someone on 5th avenue and get away with it. Mr. Trump created the current situation and refusal to acknowledge this is simply disingenuous, dishonest and self-serving. Does the author conveniently forget a white Trump supporter punching a black protestor at a campaign rally on national TV? Does he not remember Trump suggesting that protestors be physically be thrown out of an arena? Does he not encourage intimidation of the press? Does he not encourage his followers to blame all the ills of the country on Muslims, Latino immigrants, liberals, “elites”, Democrats, the MSM (at least that named Fox)?

    Perhaps the author should ask journalists just how fearful they were while attempting to report on Trump rallies during the campaign and just how wary they are today when it comes to covering Mr. Trump in public forums. I will accept Rep. Briggs asking for Rep Waters to resign only when he asks Mr. Trump to do the same.

    RE: using the Bible. The writings of the Bible have always been used to justify man’s inhumanity to man and politicians positions. Sessions’ and Sanders’ used a portion of the Bible that was used to justify both slavery and the Holocaust(Oh wait, I am sure that there are some readers here who fervently believe that the Holocaust never happened).

    When two boxers fight and one is declared victor, often one hears him give thanks to God for his victory—–what is the loser supposed to say….Oh God, why hast thou forsaken me”???

    BOTTOM LINE….

    I cannot give any credence to the opinions of this author unless he acknowledges the genesis of the issue.

    • You made some very salient points. However to imply that Christians use the Bible to perpetuate evil is an oxymoron. The Bible is not evil. It’s an oxymoron just like “conservative Christian” or “liberal Christian” What has happened is that some Christians put their political views as primary above the biblical worldview. This results in erroneous analysis of social and economic events. The prophets in the Bible condemned evil regardless of its source. Real Christian should use the Bible to expose evil and engage truth and not go overboard on Rep Walters right to protest (point out the offensive language). By the way the silence of my Christian brethren when the Tea Party and others used many racist and facist language against President Obama was very disturbing.

      • Paul ShadowCat

        Real christian ? Real bible ? Both are all about ” I can do what ever I want and my god will forgive me later. Psalms 137:9 Happy the man that takes yours babes and dashes them on the rocks.
        Judges 21:10-24 NLT)

        So they sent twelve thousand warriors to Jabesh-gilead with orders to kill everyone there, including women and children. “This is what you are to do,” they said. “Completely destroy all the males and every woman who is not a virgin.” Among the residents of Jabesh-gilead they found four hundred young virgins who had never slept with a man, and they brought them to the camp at Shiloh in the land of Canaan.

        Deuteronomy 20:10-14)

        As you approach a town to attack it, first offer its people terms for peace. If they accept your terms and open the gates to you, then all the people inside will serve you as your slaves. But if they refuse to make peace and prepare to fight, you must attack the town. When the LORD your God hands it over to you, kill every man in the town. But you may keep for yourselves all the women, children, livestock, and other plunder. You may enjoy the spoils of your enemies that the LORD your God has given you.

        The christian god is nothing but evil.

      • You are correct sir, there is no evil in the word of God! On judgement day they will not ask you for your voters registration, or I.D. Your life was known before you lived it, God said, “I knew you in the womb!” We must stop hating each other, and start praying for each other! I know it’s very easy to get angry today, I’m the worst! I love America, why would anyone, want to make the best country on earth, into a socialist dictatorship? It doesn’t make sense!

    • John Miller I seldom have any comments on an editorial but your response was so far out into the ozone that I had to say something. As I read your response I had a vision of you sitting at your computer with your nose so far in the air that from your analysis you must have been in a severe oxygen depletion zone. Your response took snippets of statements made and then you devised your own incorrect analysis of many different conversations. It’s OK though you are a normal liberal elite who does not seemingly have the capacity to analyze a set of facts without putting a negative emotional spin on them.
      By the way Trump blames the ills of country on evil people or people who have a devisive agenda and probably stupid people who don’t understand how to analyze tieing their shoes let alone the problems with the country. Maxine Waters is over the hill and out of control. If she was a responsible person she would resign for the good of the country and her own health. She is out of control and at the very least should be heavily censured.

      My advice to you is to get off your fake moral high ground and get all the facts before you start criticizing anybody else. You can’t have solid analysis by basing your thinking on fake media soundbites.

    • Well John Miller,maybe you should go live with that ugly idiot Maxine Waters,she should be arrested for telling all those people to harass all of those people including the president if it was someone else saying all that she is doing, they would already be arrested, she needs to keep her ugly mouth shut no one wants to look at her because she is so ugly,and stupid.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • I have to agree wholly with your views on this subject here. If you are not going to call out one side for the identical and factually greater number of incidences then you shouldn’t call out either side.

  3. Did you hear the “Sieg Heil” chants in the background as Waters went on her public tirade. Hitler said God was on his side also. History repeating itself.

  4. Now you want civility? Should’ve thought about that before electing someone bragging about sexual assault.

  6. NOTE to Paul Ryan: Rep & head loon in the House of Representative, Maxine Waters, deserves to be censured for her despicable, potentially leading to physical confrontations behavior! Her behavior is not acceptable from an elected official. She has become increasingly unhinged. She called for Trump’s impeachment just hours after his inauguration! If she cannot control her anger & emotions, she needs to be removed from office. Shame on Maxine!

    Congrats to Ms. Sanders for her grace to the Red Hen Restaurant and its intolerant owner. Sarah is a class act and a role model for how one should behave in public.

    It is sad to see our country deteriorating into a lot of rude, ignorant, foul-mouthed, angry intolerant citizens. What a horrible example some people are setting for our children. It is possible for intelligent adults to disagree without being disagreeable.

    • I can’t believe you are complaining about Waters, & completely ignoring the Bigot-in-Chief’s long history of hate-filled speech & actions. His immoral behavior is a disgrace to the office, the country & humanity in general. There needs to be honor & integrity in the White House, not a con-man.

  7. Dear Mom: In a 1963 speech, Rabbi Joachim Prinz, when describing Germany’s response to the rise of fascism, said: “The most urgent, the most disgraceful, the most shameful and the most tragic problem is silence.” Calling for so-called civil behavior is little more than a demand for silence. Would America be a separate country today had our fore fathers been silent in the face of oppression by a distant and uncaring king? I think not. Let’s also be clear that confrontation is a form of free speech that is protected by our Bill of Rights. It may be unpleasant to the recipients of confrontation, but as has been demonstrated on numerous occasions by our president and his staff, a lack of civility and actual threats have become the norm of this administration. Protest – confrontation, if you will – has a long established place in American history and should not be suppressed lightly. If the president and his administration would care to lead by example, a return to a more civil discourse would seem likely.

  8. Isn’t this a hate crime similar to saying the wrong thing about gays or blacks or anyone else not like ourselves. None of the above is right but why is it alright to do what she did. Is she above the law? I guess the bottom line is when are all politicians going to start governing, which we the taxpayer pay dearly, instead or trying to outdo each other verbally.

    • It actually borders on sedition. Inciting people to rise up against our leadership, particularly by someone who is an elected representative of our government, is a crime and she should be punished for it.

  9. give maxine waters the nobel peace prize

  10. she should be jailed for inciting to riot

  11. Maxine what goes around comes around
