I confronted Rep. Maxine Waters of California regarding her call for Trump administration officials to be harassed in their everyday lives. Does Maxine Waters think this kind of targeted harassment is civil? Does Maxine Waters stand behind her comments, or was it just agitprop for her Resistance friends?
Many Democrats are disavowing Rep. Maxine Waters for her comments earlier, encouraging people to harass Trump administration officials and Trump supporters in the streets.
But not all Democrat lawmakers are taking the sane path and distancing themselves from Waters.
“So yes, if I saw an administrator in, um, out and about, there’s nothing wrong with confronting that person,” said Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) at the very end of a rant on MSNBC…
The Senator took quite a circuitous route to confirm that he completely agrees with Waters’ tactics.
“So, first of all, I subscribe to the idea of radical love, Booker said. “The kind that my parents taught me – participants in the civil rights movement. Yes, you should protest. Yes should confront evil and injustice. But do it in the ways that Martin Luther King did.”
“I call on all of America not to sit comfortably and be bystanders to the injustices that are going on when it comes to this immigration system,” he said. I think we should all not be sitting comfortably by, idly by while these outrages are going on, and we should protest.”

WATCH: Tucker SLAMS Lindsey Graham For EB5 Visa Giveaway Scheme Amidst Coronavirus Epidemic
Graham wants to use the crisis to boost immigration visas.
Tucker Carlson took South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham to task in a segment on his show Thursday night, blasting the opportunistic Senator for seeking to insert an immigration visa giveaway into upcoming Coronavirus stimulus legislation.
Graham is attempting to enact a raise in the annual level of EB-5 visas. The controversial program allows wealthy foreigners to enter the United States on the basis of supposed investment they make into the economy.
Graham is lobbying President Trump to agree to a massive boost to the program-raising annual EB-5 visa levels from a current total of 10,000 to 75,000. Graham also seeks to lower the threshold of investment for an EB-5 from $900,000 to $450,000.
In a display of tone-deaf politics taken to a new level, the EB-5 program Graham seeks to expand is currently commonly used by wealthy Chinese citizens to purchase American residency and citizenship. Allowing a free path to residency for China’s richest multi-millionaires and billionaires almost certainly would provide the Chinese government a means of entryism into major American institutions and society, in an age where the American public is more distrustful and skeptical of Chinese influence than ever before.
Watch the segment here:
Graham has also gone on record advocating for a bailout of big businesses and private companies, while opposing direct basic income transfers to everyday working American families.
American citizenship is not a mere bauble to be offered for sale in a time of crisis, especially considering the EB-5’s dubious benefits on the American economy. The verification mechanisms for the visa recipients’ investments in American jobs are notoriously weak, to the extent that both major parties agreed to scale back the program last year.
America is a country, not merely an economy. It’s well past time Senator Graham gives up his constant attempt to retcon old globalist policies into President Donald Trump’s administration, especially in times of national emergency.
