Maxine Waters Forced to Denounce Flag-Burning Outside Her Office. Here’s What She Said.

Published

Maxine “Auntie Maxine” Waters has been as unhinged as ever over the last few months, seeing, in the faux-hysteria over separated families at the Southern border, an opportunity to turn her crazy anti-Trump rhetoric up to eleven.

And turn it up to eleven she did.

Ever-hopeful that Trump will be impeached for some reason or another, she responded to recent incidents of harassment against Trump admin officials to call for more harassment of Trump admin officials, prompting even her own party to try to get her to simmer down.

But when a rag-tag group of anti-American protesters showed up outside her office to counter-protest the Oath Keepers, who had been planning on demonstrating at her California office after her repeated inflammatory comments, we learned that even Waters has her limits.

Or at least, has woken up to the fact that her violent rhetoric isn’t working out too well for the Democrats, who are currently trapped between the loud, easily-offended far-left voters they’ve been taking cues from and the moderate, reasonable voters who are ever-alienated by the increasingly radical party platform.

The Daily Mail reports that after the protesters outside her office snatched an American flag from a vehicle they believed to be occupied by the Oath Keepers and proceeded to burn it on the premises, Waters eventually issued a statement seeking to distance herself from this kind of behavior, claiming the protesters acted to push “their own agenda,” and that the “incident ‘overshadowed’ her call for peaceful protests.”

Right. “Peaceful.”

“While most of those counter-protesters remained peaceful, I have learned that there were others in attendance who were not necessary from the 43rd District, but who nevertheless participated as counter-porters not so much in support of me, but to seek press attention in furtherance of their own agendas,” she explained.

“Unfortunately, this group’s actions with respect to the American flag, and their passing physical contact with other protesters, has created fodder for partisan media outlets to exploit and overshadowed the majority of counter-protests who engaged in peaceful demonstrations,” she continued.

“While I do not agree with torching the flag as a form of protest, I understand the Constitution guarantees everyone the right to this form of free expression,” Waters finished, to everyone’s shock, considering how little she seems to think of the nation in whose government she serves. “However, physical violence, or even the perceived threat of violence, is not an acceptable way to protest injustice today and can never be tolerated.”

I don’t know about you, but this is way too little, way too late. Waters absolutely should have known better than to openly call for public harassment of Trump officials following years of violent protest and things like Antifa doxing ICE agents (which was done in their spare time in between showing up at patriotic rallies to try to bash some conservative heads in, of course.)

If Maxine waters opposes violent protest, that’s news to everyone, and if she wanted to express this, she probably should have started condeming it years ago.

Pelosi, Capitol Police Now Bickering Over ‘Orders’ to ‘Arrest’ the Mask-less

This is getting embarrassing for Nancy…

Thankfully, the latest COVID-19 stunt by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi only took a few hours to unravel this time around. Pelosi, who has been pushing the GOP’s buttons on mask mandates for months now, used the CDC’s recent guidance adjustment to bring the facial coverings back to the House floor.  This prompted protests from a great many Republicans, and Pelosi subsequently threatened to have the Capitol Police start arresting folks who wouldn’t comply. The Capitol Police were not exactly on board with that idea. https://twitter.com/CapitolPolice/status/1420810728387264517?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1420810728387264517%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.foxnews.com%2Fpolitics%2Fcapitol-police-ordered-arrest-staff-visitors-not-wearing-masks A response from the speaker followed. Pelosi’s office said she did not order police to begin arresting people because it’s not within her power. “The speaker of the House does not control the U.S. Capitol Police,” Pelosi spokesperson Drew Hammill told Fox News.  “We were unaware of the memo until it was reported in the press.” The embarrassing incident comes amid a flurry of criticisms of Pelosi’s handling of the Congressional mask policy, and likely marks yet another milestone in the decline of Nancy Pelosi’s speakership.

Capitol Police Ordered to Arrest Those Who Refuse Mask Mandate

Is Pelosi exploiting the Capitol Police to antagonize the GOP?

The COVID-19 pandemic has once again become a major piece of the American political landscape in 2021, as a new variant of the once-waning virus now threatens to set back herd immunity by several months or more. And while this is certainly not good news, there are still concerns that the Democratic Party is still taking this whole thing a bit too seriously, possibly in an attempt to virtue-signal their way into the hearts of young liberals everywhere. Their latest militant maneuver is being slathered in criticism, however. U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) were ordered to start arresting visitors and staff who refuse to wear a mask on the House side of the Capitol complex starting Thursday, according to a police memo issued by new USCP Chief Thomas Manger that was obtained by a member of Congress. Police were also advised not to arrest members of Congress for failing to wear masks but to report the lawmakers’ noncompliance to the House sergeant-at-arms, the memo says. It didn’t take long for a backlash to erupt. Rep. Kat Cammack, R-Fla., got a copy of the memo distributed at Thursday’s morning roll call from an unnamed police officer, she told Fox News. Police she’s spoken to are “very uncomfortable” with this new directive that Cammack describes as “tyrannical.” “This is such an overstep of Speaker Pelosi’s authority to basically make our Capitol Police arrest staff members and report on members [of Congress],” Cammack told Fox News Thursday. “It’s absolutely unconscionable that this is where we’re at.” The move comes just a day after House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s comments on possible mask requirements prompted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to call him a “moron”.
