Skip to comments.Maxine Waters: Violent Protests ‘Make America Better’, Republicans Should ‘Feel Uncomfortable’
Posted on 11/05/2018 6:00:18 PM PST by Kaslin
Over the weekend, California Representative Maxine Waters once again defended her public statements encouraging her supporters to harass and assault their political opponents in mobs. During a Saturday appearance on the Roland Martin Unfiltered web show, Waters insisted that such protests make America better because protestors are fighting for justice and equality for everybody.
Rather than deny that she has been encouraging violent behavior against Republicans, Waters justified such tactics by claiming that the very nature of protests is to make their targets feel uncomfortable:
I told someone the other day who is trying to say that we are violent when we protest: Protest is about making you feel uncomfortable. Im not supposed to come to you and say: May I protest you?
[Roland Martin and staff laugh]
No! Absolutely not. If your heart tells you that this is what you need to do because you see some injustice that you see people who are creating, you know, a terrible time and pain for others and you want to protest to try and make change, to try and make it right, then speak what your heart is telling you to do.
Waters continued by lauding her concept of protests as a patriotic tradition and expression of American identity that has made our country a better place over the years:
It is because of protests that we have been able to make America better. We are the patriots who say we believe in this country and we believe that it can be about justice and equality for everybody. And we cant back up from that.
Right, Martin agreed. Without any immediate pushback, Waters went on and concluded her line of thought by accusing conservatives and Republicans of trying to intimidate her and other Democrats for pointing out their encouragement of misdemeanor-level violence:
We cant allow anybody to intimidate us and call us violent and talk about somehow, we are approaching the establishment in a terrible way. We cant allow them to take away our right to protest.

Money GOP paid to keep Maxine talking up to the minute the polls close was well spent /s
Rectal cancer for this one please...amen.
She keeps askin for It.
I wonder if it’s the fact that she’s so ugly that makes her so mean.
Yeah, I do feel uncomfotable. Like I forgot to put the garbage out or flush the toilet. Know what I mean?
Maxine, you’re going to get your people shot when they attack the wrong people. Hide and watch, wait and see.
Imagine the endless consternation and outrage if someone in Congress said that Democrats should feel threatened?
Let’s start with a bitch slap across her pie hole.
CNN will get on her about her rhetoric because they care about that kinda stuff.
Maxine just doesn’t get it. Complains about violence, but advocates violence. WTH is wrong with her?
Really hate how it’s become. I do wonder if old Mad Max would enjoy it if people started telling their base to go after her and her retarded voters. Of course the person would be slammed and then tossed in prison. Then again we can than her and a hundred others plus Soetero for Trump and pence.
If she feels that way I guess she wouldn’t mind if these violent protests were done against HER..maybe at her rich Hancock Park neighborhood, since she would NOT dare live in the ghetto she represents
>>WTH is wrong with her?
Double digit I.Q.
I sure hope all her voters turn out on Dec 8th to vote.
