After U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., implored Americans of good conscience to publicly confront White House officials over their policies, leading Democrats joined with Republicans to denounce Waters comments as uncivil.
It was one of the few acts of bipartisanship that Democrats have engaged in since the advent of the Trump administration, and it was by far the most harmful. Not only because Waters, who lived through the civil rights movement, understands that oppressors do not buckle to civility. It was harmful because Waters fellow Democrats including leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer wrongly believe that tyranny can be combated with polite discourse.
That naive worldview is exactly why Democrats find themselves out of power. And if the only thing they can find to criticize is the one Democrat who wants to stand and fight an administration that seeks to disenfranchise, discriminate against and disrespect every nonwhite, non-Christian person who steps on American soil, Democrats do not deserve to retake Congress in the midterm elections.
This latest example of Democratic futility began with the Trump administration's policy of separating families that illegally crossed the southern border. After 2,300 migrant children were locked in government-funded detention facilities, Waters spoke out....

Couldn’t get past the first sentence. What a cr@p sandwich.
What can you say? It’s a carp wrap paper. Waters is so repulsive even democrats notice but not the F heads at the Turbine.
Setting themselves up with excuses for massive failure. Its all Obama ever did.
“Maxine Waters deserves better from her party”
absolutely! she CLEARLY deserves to be the face of the party ...
The only people who listen to Maxine are blacks with extreme political orientation.
Therefore, the logical conclusion of following Maxine’s exhortations is to assemble a hostile black mob around physically vulnerable white government officials.
At best, threatening, and easily interpreted that way. Often, dangerous, since the people listening to Maxine aren’t all love-and-flowers peaceful.
It’s incitement to riot.
The Big Lie is alive and well.
If the Left wants a fight, more and more folks are ready to oblige... Personally, I'm extremely sick of their nonsense.
I am old enough to remember when the Tribune was Conservative! What absurd drivel!
I agree. She needs to be propped up even more as one of the faces of the DEM party.
costings the democrats thousands of votes a day and I love it. Keep it coming.
Proves the Tribe is in Bed with the DemocRATS.
Well, the MadMaxiePad is one of my all-time favorite contemporary RATs.
Whether she wanted to or not, she’s become the face & voice of the RAT side of the UniParty and really should run for POTUS on the next go-around.
She should pick someone like that brain-dead Lewis fella, or even Cory Booker, for a running mate and go for it. It would be considered the ‘winning combination” for what the RAT party stands for and has become today. No one would dare contest them as it would be.......racist!!
Maxine Waters deserves... a padded cell.
If she means an intervention, I’d agree.
Pelosi put a muzzle on Maxine.
She had to claim “death threats”, oldest trick in the book.
Democrats do not deserve to retake Congress in the midterm elections.
A small nugget of truth, the rest is lies.
How about a “hale and hearty handshake” and a goodbye?
Solomon Jones is not amused.
Where’s the Cowboy Hat wearing Rock Star ?
