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

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.

Maxine Waters

On Capitol Hill this week, there has been turbulence once again. This time, instead of a riotous mob looking to storm the building and create chaos intended to derail our government, the trouble comes from California Congresswoman Maxine Waters, whose suggestion that Americans need to be “more confrontational” in their opinions on the Derek Chauvin trial has been widely lambasted as an inappropriate call to arms at a time in which our nation is already suffering from uncouth bouts of political violence. For her troubles, Waters is now facing censure. House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy told Breitbart News exclusively that he will move to formally censure House Financial Services Committee chairwoman Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) over her call to violence in Minnesota this weekend. McCarthy’s move, which comes after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi refused to hold Waters accountable, will force a censure vote in the House. Pelosi cannot stop McCarthy’s resolution censuring Waters from receiving a vote, because it is a privileged resolution. If Democrats lose just three of their members on this vote and all Republicans vote for it, then Waters will be formally censured by the House and likely lose her powerful position as chair of the Financial Services Committee. This is certainly not Waters’ first foray into violent rhetoric. The Democratic stalwart had suggested that her constituents seek out conservatives and make them feel “not welcome” during a speech in 2018.  Over the next several days, Democratic operatives verbally harassed a number of prominent GOP women, shouting them out of public spaces.
