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.”
