What if I told you that a Republican Congressional leader was encouraging his/her supporters to confront, harass, and even threaten Democrat politicians and government workers? You’d probably be repulsed. You might even argue that that legislator had no business in Congress.
Now, how do you think the media would react to such an egregious display of bad behavior?
If you think that the media would harangue that Republican mercilessly… you’d probably be right. But how would the media treat a Democrat who was behaving this badly?
Well, the media has a chance to respond to just such a Democrat and… let’s just say that the media seems disinterested.
Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) is once again proving that she’s of the lowest moral fiber, and could recently be heard calling for attacks on members of the Trump administration. She told her rabid acolytes that they should make sure Trump administration officials don’t feel welcome anywhere in society.
From the Daily Wire:
Waters, who falsely claimed that Trump was “sacrificing our children,” appeared intent on inciting violence, saying, “If you think we’re rallying now, you ain’t seen nothing yet.”
“Already, you have members of your Cabinet that are being booed out of restaurants…who have protesters taking up at their house, who say, ‘No peace, no sleep! No peace, no sleep!’” Waters continued.
“God is on our side!” Waters declared.
Waters then called for attacks on individual members of the Trump administration, saying: “Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up 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.”

Her comments come just at the same time that White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked to leave a D.C. area restaurant, and less than a week after White House advisor Stephen Miller was harassed while trying to enjoy dinner out. Around the same town that Miller was being accosted Secretary of Homeland Security, Kirstjen Nielsen was also being mistreated at yet another D.C. area restaurant, and most recently on Saturday night, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi was accosted while trying to watch a movie at a local theater!
Protesters heckled Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi on Friday at a showing of a documentary about children’s TV host Fred Rogers, challenging her support of the Trump administration’s stance on immigration and the state’s decision to join a lawsuit against the Affordable Care Act.
After watching “Won’t You Be My Neighbor,” a documentary about the fabled Mr. Rogers, Bondi was shouted at by demonstrators and had to be escorted by police, the Tampa Bay Times reported.
“What would Mr. Rogers think about you and your legacy in Florida? Taking away health insurance from people with pre-existing conditions, Pam Bondi,” one protester reportedly shouted.
“You’re a horrible person!” another is quoted as calling out.
All of this happening just a year after the attempted mass assassination of Republican lawmakers while their congressional team practiced for a charity baseball game tells a very worrisome story about the fanaticism on the left these days. It also highlights the idiocy of Democrat leaders like Maxine Waters who should be blamed the next time a Democrat attacks a Republican. This is simply a disgusting series of circumstances and Democrats across the nation should be ashamed of their party and their fellow Democrats.
