Skip to comments.Waters Says Trump Responsible for Political Violence [semi-satire]
Posted on 10/27/2018 1:53:35 AM PDT by John Semmens
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif) demanded that President Trump admit responsibility for the political violence and incivility that has plagued the country since his election.
"We didn't see people rioting in the streets when Obama was president," Waters recalled. "And we wouldn't be seeing it now if Hillary Clinton had been elected as she should've been. With Republicans in charge at the White House, the Senate and the House, Democrats were pushed into violence as a last resort."
The Congresswoman insisted that "this is not aimless violence just for violence's sake. Our targets aren't random. We are going after Republicans wherever they may appear in public to let them know that we do not accept them as our governors. We are going after the deplorables who support Trump. We are going after white people who have enslaved and abused minorities since the founding of this country."
"Trump could put an end to the violence if he would take responsibility, resign, and hand the office over to Sec. Clinton," Waters suggested. "Given the choice of continued violent opposition vs. the return to civility that she has promised once Democrats are back in charge, that is the only right thing for Trump to do. Every day he insists on staying in office endangers more lives and puts America under more stress. His refusal to do what the resistance demands is unpatriotic."
A contrary perspective was offered by President Trump who contends that "a big part of what is driving the anger that is degrading civility and provoking violence stems from purposely false and misleading so-called news put out by the mainstream media."
In related news, the New York Times published a fictional story in which a Secret Service agent assigned to protect President Trump assists a Russian spy to assassinate him. The story was one of a batch of entries the paper solicited from "today's most talented spy and crime novelists" who were asked to speculate on how Trump's presidency might end. Times Book Review editor Pamela Paul called the story "the kind of ending most of our readers have been fantasizing about since the night Trump was declared the winner of the 2016 election. We just had to publish it as a reward for our loyal subscribers."

Gash it’s almost true.
It’s annoying to see the left blame violence on speech. With the exception of incitement to violence, speech is protected. Violence is not. No rhetoric justifies violence, and conversely no violence is justified by rhetoric.
The left has surrendered all logic and reason, and all their professed principles, solely to justify blaming everything the can think of on Trump... while of course exonerating their own rhetoric. Thus, they live in a world of cognitive dissonance.
I've been saying that for many years. :(
Because Trump had been featured on TV, "firing" many people, those never-do-wells who've been fired (maybe more than once) become inarticulate to Trump's programsand resort to violence...
How soon before “Beto” (should be Beano) O’Rourke claims he got a suspicious package (#metoo)?
