Rep. Maxine Waters warned her minions of potential “armed protests” against her after an conservative patriot group called for ongoing demonstrations outside her office in Los Angeles.
In a lengthy statement issued late Wednesday, Waters, D-Calif., said she’d been notified about forthcoming protests by the Oath Keepers, which she falsely described as “an anti-government militia” that’s staged armed protests in cities across the country.
She warned her supporters against being “baited” into counter-demonstrations or confrontations with the organization, which she said has a track record of “violent and provocative behavior.”
She has obviously mistaken Oath Keepers for Antifa. Antifa is well known for violent riots, while Oath Keepers is well known for being peaceful.
“I am requesting those individuals and groups planning a counter-protest to not be baited into confronting the Oath Keepers with any demonstrations in opposition,” Waters said. “Such an occurrence would only exacerbate tensions and increase the potential for conflict.”
She urged supporters to avoid protesting on the same date and time as protests planned by the Oath Keepers.
“The Oath Keepers would like nothing more than to inflame racial tensions and create an explosive conflict in our community,” Waters said. “The group is known to protest in military-style clothing while carrying various assault weapons.”
The Oath Keepers is actually a non-partisan association of current and former military officers, cops and first responders.
The group issued a “call to action” against Waters, telling members to prepare for as many as several weeks of protests in the Los Angeles area.
“This is the launch of an ongoing protest that may go on for several weeks. Other patriotic groups are welcome to join us,” the group’s statement said. “This is both a protest against Maxine Waters’ incitement of terrorism, and a stand for ICE and the Border Patrol, as they enforce the perfectly constitutional immigration and naturalization laws of this nation.”
The group said it was upset with Waters over recent comments she made about President Donald Trump and his administration that it claimed incited “far-left terrorist violence and threats of violence.”
Waters, 79, ignited controversy last month when she called on her supporters to publicly confront and harass members of the Trump administration in response to the zero-tolerance immigration policy that led to the separation of families at the border.
The longtime Congresswoman attempted to clarify her comments a few days later after Trump claimed she had “called for harm” to his supporters.
“I believe in peaceful, very peaceful protests,” Waters told reporters in June. “I have not called for the harm of anybody. This president has lied again when he’s saying that I’ve called for harm.”
She noted in her statement on Wednesday that Los Angeles Police Department officers and personnel would be on site Thursday “to ensure safety and security.”
“My primary concern is to maintain the safety and security of the protesters, staff, and constituents of California’s 43rd Congressional District — a task that would be exceedingly complicated by large crowds of protesters and counter-protesters,” she said.
Of course, had she actually been worried about anyone’s safety, she wouldn’t have called for the stalking and harassment of Trump administration officials and Trump supporters, now would she?
Recently, the California Congresswoman went on an insane screaming bout during a toy drive outside the Wilshire Federal Building.
After claiming Trump is “sacrificing our children,” referring to the illegal alien kids separated from their “parents” near the border, Waters again called for the president’s impeachment, triggering loud applause from her mindless minions.
“History will record while he tried to step on all of us, we kicked him in his rear and step on him,” she yelled, whipping up the crowd.
“If you think we’re rallying now, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet,” she warned.
“Already, you have members of your Cabinet that are being booed out of restaurants,” she continued as the crowd erupted, “who have protesters taking up at their house, who say, ‘No peace, no sleep. No peace, no sleep,’” she continued.
“And guess what,” she predicted, “we’re going to win this battle because while you try and quote the Bible, Jeff Sessions and others, you really don’t know the Bible.
“God is on OUR side!” she declared, as the crowd went wild. “On the side of the children. On the side of what’s right. On the side of what’s honorable.”
“And so, let’s stay the course. 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, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” she yelled.
“Mr. President, we will see you every day, every hour of the day, everywhere that we are to let you know you cannot get away with this!” she yelled.
