There are plenty of analogies for the experience that California Representative Maxine Waters is living through in recent weeks, none of which are quite clever enough to demonstrate the hilarity of the matter.
You see, Waters had earlier attempted to start her own New Civil War during an agitated stump speech in front of literally dozens of supporters, in which they implored them to make life a living hell for supporters of the President, his administration, and conservatives the nation over. She declared that they should be made to feel “unwelcome” in America, and that groups of vigilante progressive posses should be forming to run these politicians and their supporters out of town, out of restaurants, and out of America, eventually.
Now, in what is one delicious piece of irony, Mad Max herself is feeling the heat of the kitchen that she herself created.
Just days after her comments, Waters was confronted on Capitol Hill by investigative journalist Laura Loomer in an encounter that was caught on camera and instantly went viral.When Loomer confronted Waters, Waters swatted Loomer in the face with paper, prompting Loomer to file a police report with the Capitol Police and press charges against the Congresswoman.
Following Waters’ remarks, President Trump turned to Twitter where he declared that Waters, “an extremely low IQ person”, had become the “Face of the Democrat party”.
When the Oath Keepers announced that they would be protesting Waters outside of her Los Angeles Congressional office, Waters issued a statement opposing the planned protest, calling the group an “anti-government militia” and accused the group of having a “history of engaging in violent and provocative behavior”.
Oath Keepers famously pulled a no-show, which allowed the counter protestors that Waters had whipped into a frenzy to stage their own political road show, harassing journalists and burning an American flag.
