Charlotte, NC — What do you get when you mix gaslighting, hypocrisy, and a smattering of insanity? While there are a myriad of people you could attribute those characteristics to; however, you’d specifically get Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters’ (CA-43). Mad Maxine appeared on MSNBC yesterday where she claimed to be innocent as a dove when it comes to inciting violence with her rhetoric.
MSNBC’s Ali Velshi interviewed Maxine and, surprisingly enough, confronted her on the comments she made in 2018 about Trump’s cabinet members. In light of the fact that the team of lawyers defending former President Donald Trump during the impeachment trial planned to use footage of Waters and other members of Congress calling for violence, he questioned whether or not her remarks constituted incitement to violence.
You’ve all seen the video of the congresswoman 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. You tell them that they’re not welcome anymore anywhere! We’ve got to get the children connected to their parents. The children are suffering.”
Playing the clip before asking Waters about her statements Velshi said, “I was able to play that clip that you were referring to from June 23, 2018, where you’re asking people to confront Republicans at department stores, gas stations, and restaurants and tell them they’re not welcome. That’s the stuff that Donald Trump’s attorneys say proves that you and others are doing the same thing Donald Trump was doing on January 6 and in the days before that. What’s the difference?”
The California Congresswoman, who doesn’t live in the district she’s elected to serve, responded using the old “but Trump though” deflection technique. “Nothing any Democrat that I know of have ever said or acted in the way the president of the United States has acted. People must realize this president was out to destroy our democracy if he could not be president,” she blatantly lied.
The octogenarian lawmaker continued, “He sent those people, those domestic terrorists, to the Capitol to take over the Capitol. Even they are saying so. They’re saying they were invited by the president. The president was rallying them right before they went. He told them to be tough. He told them to take back their government.”
She didn’t stop there. At that point, she then moved to pretending that she made those comments because she wanted to protect the children in cages that she and her feckless ilk have decided are no longer important now that a Democrat is in the White House again.
“Yes, I defended those poor children in cages that the Trump administration has left there separated from their parents,” she said. “There was a movement at the time where restaurants were denying members of his administration of his cabinet and saying you guys should speak up for the children. And so that does not in any way equal what this president has said and what he has done.”
Maxine added, “as a matter of fact, the Republicans should be afraid not only about the destruction of our democracy, but if they continue to support him and allow themselves to be guided by him, they’re going to have to live with a president that dictates to them every vote they can take, every vote they cannot take, he’s going to be in their primaries, they will be owned by this dishonorable human being.”
To which Velshi replied, “So let me ask you because this is what they’re going to say. Can you say that you have not glorified or encouraged violence against Republicans?”
“Absolutely, I can say it. As a matter of fact, if you look at the words that I used, the strongest thing was to tell them they’re not welcome, talk to them, tell them they’re not welcome,” she bloviated. “I didn’t say go and fight. I didn’t say anybody was going to have any violence. So they can’t make that statement.”
But what she and the rest of the Democrats obviously ignore is the fact former President Donald Trump never actually said “anybody was going to have any violence’ either. In fact, by their own definition of violence and incitement, Waters, along with many of her fellow Democrats, is absolutely guilty of the crime of which they’re now accusing former President Donald Trump. They’re impeaching the man, a man who is no longer in office, for something less than what their standards and actions reflect!
The Democrats and their communication arm, the legacy media, have established their own standard: If you use harsh rhetoric and people use it as an excuse to riot, it’s you’re fault. Unless you’re one of them, of course. This is why they don’t blame Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for the actions of one of his followers who attempted to assassinate GOP lawmakers in 2018. A reference Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) mentioned directly in his passionate speech in Congress where he called in the “antithesis of unity.”
Sen. @RandPaul: "This impeachment is nothing more than a partisan exercise designed to further divide the country. Democrats claim to want to unify the country, but impeaching a former president, a private citizen, is the antithesis of unity." pic.twitter.com/W8SHXO2URn

However, despite Maxine’s ridiculous claims, the effort to impeach former President Donald Trump is destined for failure. Last month, 45 Republican senators voted to declare the entire process unconstitutional. The Democrats needed 17 GOP Senators to vote in favor of conviction to stand a chance. Never one to give up on their lunacy, this is clearly not going to stop them from trying.
