Skip to comments.Congresswoman Complains of Harassment [semi-satire]
Posted on 07/01/2018 1:05:10 PM PDT by John Semmens
Earlier this week, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif) praised mobs that drove a couple of Trump Administration officials from a restaurant and movie theater. She urged more of this mob justice, saying 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. You push back on them. Tell them theyre not welcome anymore, anywhere! Now she is claiming to fear for her life after her statement urging crowds to harass Trump and his supporters inspired some Trump supporters to harass herincluding a crowd outside her palatial estate chanting no peace, no sleep.
I called for the people to exercise their constitutional right to drive Trump supporters from public places, Waters said. Public places belong to the people. Trump supportersmembers of his cabinet and votershave no right to enter these places if the people forbid it. Trump and his minions are the fascists that are tyrannizing this country. The people have a right to resist this by any means necessary. The fascists harassing me are usurping a power that is not their prerogative.
Over at CNN, commentator Angela Rye bristled at contentions by fellow Democrats Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer that Waters efforts to incite mobs to harass Trump Administration officials were uncivil and un-American. Democrats dont have the votes to stop Trump in Congress, Rye pointed out. Taking it to the streets, as Maxine urged, is the only viable strategy. Opposition to this strategy conceived and articulated by a Black woman is racist. The Congressional Black Caucus expressed similar sentiments.

I don’t get it.
Unless the “satire” is actually to describe the reality, and then stick a “satire” label on it. Oh, now I get it.
That residence is NOT in her district....I thought Representatives had to live INSIDE their districts???
OK, that seems to be satire. One Google hit.
"Opposition to this strategy conceived and articulated by a Black woman is racist."
But, close enough. As usual, John's satire articulates the leftists' positions better than they do.
So if I’m in a public place and suddenly get surrounded by a group on people yelling at me I’m already in fear for my life.
In the state of florida we call that a free fire zone.
Someone might want to rethink their position.
