“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.”
“The people are going to turn on them. They’re going to protest. They’re going to absolutely harass them until they decide that they’re going to tell the president, ‘No I can’t hang with you — this is wrong, this is unconscionable, and we can’t keep doing this to children.’”
These comments were uttered by California Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters, first at a Los Angeles rally Monday and then on MSNBC.
Ms. Waters, or Mad Max, is promoting is mayhem.
The impetus for her senile insanity was the separation of alien children from alien parents who illegally crossed the border, a practice that was going in previous administrations. But because the Democrat Industrial Media Complex (DIMC) was indifferent, it didn’t publicize it. So the public didn’t know because it wasn’t told.
Now with President Donald Trump, a Republican in the Oval Office, everything changed.
Family separation also changed. Last week Mr. Trump signed an executive order that complies with law directing Attorney General Jeff Sessions to petition federal courts to grant him greater authority to “detain alien families together.” This was the legal position of President Obama who implemented family detention as a deterrent. But with Mr. Trump in the White House, Democrats are furious because they want to prevent family detention centers altogether.
(The conditions in which the Obama administration kept unaccompanied children was far worse than how they are being cared for now, says Patricia McCarthy. “Obama’s policy was to simply turn them over to so called care facilities, many of which were fronts for child sex-trafficking. He lost track of thousands of young children he encouraged to come to the Southern border, who then simply disappeared into the interior of the county … Many of them as potential mules for the drug cartels, others to be trafficked by the enormous network of pedophiles ….”)
Last week Trump administration members were victims of Ms. Waters’ anarchy.
A mob hounded Department of Homeland Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen out of a Mexican restaurant in Washington, D.C. Then it went to her Virginia townhouse, yelling and screaming and blasting audio of crying children, chanting “no justice, no sleep.” When she left her home and got into a car, protesters shouted, “History will remember you. You belong in the Hague. You’re a modern day Nazi.”
Friday night Sarah Sanders, White House press secretary, and her family were asked to leave a restaurant in Lexington, Va. The owner of the Red Hen then followed the family, harassing them when they entered another restaurant.
Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi and her boyfriend were harassed at a movie theater, surrounded by three large men shouting at her within an inch of her face.
Seth Rogen, a Canadian-American actor, gleefully said on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” that he refused a selfie with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s children. And the Colbert crowd cheered vociferously.
The liberal Left thinks this is grand.
Yesterday, Laurence Key was arrested in Stuart, Fla., for threatening to harm the children of Florida Rep. Brian Mast, all of whom are younger than 8 because he was mad about the separation of children at the border.
The DIMC is silent. There is no condemnation of this conduct, of these words. As others, particularly those on the right are saying, this guarantees another Scalise tragedy.
For those who might not remember or who didn’t note what happened, on June 14, 2017, James T. Hodgkinson, 66, a radicalized Bernie Sanders supporter, used a high powered rifle to try and kill as many Republicans who were practicing for the annual congressional charity baseball game as he could. Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., the House majority whip was critically wounded. Four others were also shot. Capitol Police killed Hodgkinson.
Following the shooting, Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-N.Y., received a threat, saying “one down, 216 to go.” Other Republicans in Congress reported receiving calls from Leftist activists saying they were glad about the shooting and hope there are more.
The liberal Left ballyhoos tolerance but their behavior is anything but. It just can’t come to terms that they lost the election, that their candidate had no message and foundered.
“Angry mobs are not discerning or careful,” said Jim Geraghty on his Morning Jolt column on National Review online yesterday. “Angry mobs are not good for deterring a particular unwanted behavior. They are good for instilling fear and giving a lot of people an excuse to let out all of their antisocial or violent impulses with a thin patina of moral righteousness. ‘I’m not harassing and assaulting another human being, I’m standing up for human rights!’”
The Left has been encouraging this violence and feels it’s justified. Because they lost.
What goes around comes back around. If that happens, the Left will be shocked and horrified by the “climate of hate” they created — which they will disown — too late.
