One of the left’s primary strategies for combatting conservatives is to avoid all intelligent discussion on the issues, opting for targeted harassment to try shaming people into falling in line with the progressive agenda instead of debating topics to find the best solutions for the problems Americans face.
We’ve seen this play out over the last several weeks as both Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen both were denied services and harassed at local restaurants until they left.
Rep. Maxine Waters then issued a call for folks around the country to continue to treat the individuals working in the Trump administration the same way, harassing them whenever the opportunity arises.
This hasn’t sat well with a lot of folks, including many of her fellow Democrats who have called her out for such a horrific suggestion.
Well, a reporter asked Waters how she felt about the criticism she was receiving from her own party over the comments and she completely lost it.
Over the weekend, Waters celebrated the news of White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders being booted out of a restaurant because she’s a member of the Trump administration by calling for more of that kind of personal targeting of administration members. “Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up,” Waters said at a toy drive event. “And 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, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere. Mr. President, we will see you ever day, every hour of the day, everywhere that we are to let you know you cannot get away with this!”
After public rebukes from her fellow Democrats Nancy Pelosi, Steny Hoyer and Chuck Schumer, Waters held a press conference Monday at which she defended her comments. When she opened the floor to questions, the first one prompted a defensive response from the congresswoman. Asked what she has to say about the criticism from her fellow Democrats, a clearly incensed Waters tried to blame the backlash on Trump.
“They have not been,” she insisted (video below). “They have talked about civility from everybody. Don’t put this on Nancy Pelosi, don’t put this on anybody — put this on Trump! Trump is the one who is creating lies, trying to have people believe that I talked about harming people. There’s nowhere in my statement, anytime, anyplace that we talked about harm.”
Waters later attempted to clarify that when she made her call for targeted harassment she meant “peaceful protest,” but it seems pretty obvious that’s not the case, especially when you examine her history of wanting to take aggressive action to remove the president from office.
It’s crazy how much political discourse has deteriorated over the last couple of decades, growing ever more hostile until the point folks are willing to do bodily harm to each other because they have different worldviews. That’s just plain outright insane.
Here’s to hoping people learn to find common ground with each other once again and begin to find ways to communicate that uphold kindness.
