I’m not going to say that I told you so, but, if we’re being honest, I very easily could make an argument for hiring a skywriter to inform you that I saw this coming.
I’m, of course, referring to the calls for violence that have been emanating from the liberal left during the entirety of this, the Trump Era. These calls were a bit subtle at first, with politicians and celebrities just hinting that the President wouldn’t be making it through his first term. One such statement came from high profile actor Johnny Depp, famous for his portrayal of a drunken pirate in a number of children’s movies, who lamented about the “last time an actor killed the President”.
This statement came during the summer of 2017, amid a myriad of threats against the President. Snoop Dogg famously killed a Donald Trump facsimile in a music video before Kathy Griffin pulled her career-destroying beheading stunt just 14 days before James T. Hodgkinson attempted to assassinate several members of the congressional GOP.
If you’re not seeing that connection, there’s no hope for you.
Now, as if that weren’t bad enough, California democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters is now calling for her constituents to seek out and harass conservatives as a mob.
Ms. Waters told her supporters to “push out” members of the Trump administration from public spaces.
“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,” Ms. Waters said Saturday during a rally in Los Angeles.
This is no longer coming from Hollywood, where you can set aside any number of horrific opinions with a stint in “rehab”. This call to violence is coming from Capitol Hill, from a public servant elected by Americans.
This, my friends, is not a good sign for the coming months.
President Trump was quick to respond to Maxine’s utterly preposterous behavior.
President Trump slammed Rep. Maxine Waters on Monday afternoon, after her speech calling for supporters to heckle members of the Trump administration went viral over the weekend.
“Congresswoman Maxine Waters, an extraordinarily low IQ person, has become, together with Nancy Pelosi, the Face of the Democrat Party. She has just called for harm to supporters, of which there are many, of the Make America Great Again movement. Be careful what you wish for Max!”
As of this writing, Maxine Waters still has her job…somehow.
So, what’s next, democrats? Are you going to cross that line again with another James T. Hodgkinson type? Are you going to continue to treat conservatives as second class citizens? Or are you going to learn from the history of hatred and cease these incendiary attacks before anyone else gets hurt?
The ball is in your court, liberals…for better or for worse.
