Maxine Waters Wants Trump Supporters To Stop Confronting Her

Published

It turns out that Congresswoman Maxine Waters can’t stand the taste of her own medicine.

In the most hilarious case of pot calling kettle black, Maxine Waters is now complaining about being confronted by Trump supporters, after she herself called on her supporters to harass, confront, and attack Trump supporters and members of the Trump administration in public.

In June, Waters told a mob of rabid leftists in California, “”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.”

Waters’ comments sparked an enormous amount of outrage and criticism, propelling her into the National spotlight for weeks as pundits, politicians, and political commentators used her comments as the foundation for a conversation about civility, or the lack of in the current political landscape.

Just days after her comments, Waters was confronted on Capitol Hill by investigative journalist Laura Loomer in an encounter that was caught on camera and instantly went viral.

When Loomer confronted Waters, Waters swatted Loomer in the face with paper, prompting Loomer to file a police report with the Capitol Police and press charges against the Congresswoman.

Following Waters’ remarks, President Trump turned to Twitter where he declared that Waters, “an extremely low IQ person”, had become the “Face of the Democrat party”.

When the Oath Keepers announced that they would be protesting Waters outside of her Los Angeles Congressional office, Waters issued a statement opposing the planned protest, calling the group an “anti-government militia” and accused the group of having a “history of engaging in violent and provocative behavior”.

However, on the day of the protest, the Oath Keepers were nowhere to be found outside of Waters’ office. Instead, a group of counter protesters who support Waters did show up to confront the Oath Keepers. When the Oath Keepers didn’t show up, counter protesters and supporters of Waters began burning the American flag and proceeded to attack a Conservative independent journalist.

In the end, the only people who “engaged in violent and provocative behavior” outside of the Congresswoman’s office, including burning the American flag and assaulting an Independent journalist from “Slightly Offensive” were Maxine Waters’ own supporters. Democrats.

How ironic.

Democrat Superdelegates Willing to Overturn Primary Delegate Count to Stop Bernie

The Democratic Party still has a ‘superdelegate’ system.

Published

on

New York Times interviews with several Democrat superdelegates revealed that the party elites are willing and prepared to block a Bernie Sanders nomination if they have the ability.

The superdelegates only enter into play if the Democrat nomination process goes to a second ballot at the party’s convention in Milwaukee. For that to happen, no candidate could possess an outright majority of (pledged) delegates on the first ballot.

In such a case, superdelegates could plausibly prove instrumental in deciding the nomination.

Bernie Sanders has gone on the record stating that the Democrat candidate who possesses the most delegates at the convention-even if they’re not an outright majority- should be the nominee. Every other Democrat candidate, with the exception of Tulsi Gabbard, has declined to back such a proposition.

Superdelegates interviewed by the Times seemed relatively unapologetic about the prospect of overturning the will of a plurality of Democrat voters and handing the nomination to a candidate with less popular votes and delegates.

Bernie wants to redefine the rules and just say he just needs a plurality,” said Jay Jacobs, chair of the New York Democrat Party. “I don’t think we buy that. I don’t think the mainstream of the Democratic Party buys that. If he doesn’t have a majority, it stands to reason that he may not become the nominee.”

The Times interviewed 93 superdelegates, finding consensus behind such a controversial proposition.

Superdelegates lost their right to participate in the first nominating ballot for the presidential primary after the 2016 election. Many Democrats were incensed at their undemocratic role in the nominating process, especially in light of their overwhelming allegiance to Hillary Clinton in the 2016 primary.

Superdelegates are composed of party donors, elected officials, and other elite Democrats granted the powerful position by the DNC.

It’s worth noting that primary season talk of contested conventions, be it in the Republican or Democrat Party, rarely materializes. Hope of a contested convention is usually limited to a pipe dream that party segments resort to when it becomes too obvious that their preferred candidate is not going to be selected by voters.
