(National Sentinel)Â Hypocrisy:Â First and foremost, we need to be upfront and as clear as we can possibly be about this subject:Â No one should be threatened with death or harmÂ for their political views. We can and should disagree and debate our disagreements, butÂ debating and voting are how to solve them.
That said, you may recall that, in recent days, crank Maxine Waters, D-Calif., dog-whistled to her supporters and crackpots on the far Left they should confront Trump administration officials wherever they are and harass them over various administration policies, including separation of children from adults at the U.S. border.
The media created that “crisis” in the first place; there is no “ripping of kids from parents’ arms” or “caging kids,” the latter done during theÂ Obama administration. But Left-wing lunatics like Waters have taken up the ’cause’ because they’re using it in an attempt to score political points against POTUS Trump. They’re not really interested in actuallyÂ solving the issue.
If you think weâ€™re rallying now,Â you ainâ€™t seen nothinâ€™ yet.Â Already, you have members of your Cabinet that are being booed out of restaurants who have protesters taking up at their house, who say,Â â€˜No peace, no sleep. No peace, no sleep.â€™
God is on OUR side! On the side of the children. On the side of whatâ€™s right. On the side of whatâ€™s honorable. And so, letâ€™s stay the course.
Letâ€™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,Â you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them theyâ€™re not welcome anymore, anywhere.

If that’s not a roundabout way of calling for physical confrontation against someone, then nothing is. Besides, Waters drew a rebuke from some members of herÂ own partyÂ over those very inflammatory statements.
Her comments reportedly drew a major death threat that led her to cancel an event in Texas. And true to form, Ms. “Impeach 45!” blamed it on POTUS Trump.
According toÂ The Blaze:
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) is blaming the rhetoric from President Donald Trump for the increase in hostile messages she says she is receiving, and she says she is canceling speaking engagements because of it.
â€œNow, because my support for the American peopleâ€™s Constitutional right to protest the Administrationâ€™s current practice of locking up immigrant children in cages and kennels,â€ Waters saidÂ in a statement Thursday,Â â€œmere weeks after Donald Trump referred to them as â€˜animalsâ€™, the President has amplified his attacks against me at his rallies and on social media.â€
â€œAs the president has continued to lie and falsely claim that I encouraged people to assault his supporters, while also offering a veiled threat that I should â€˜be carefulâ€™, even more individuals are leaving threating [sic] messages and sending hostile mail to my office,â€ she explained.
None of this is true. There is no “constitutional right” to physically harassÂ anyone, forÂ any reason, least of all for political reasons. Protesting — free expression and freedom of assembly — isÂ not harassment. Harassment isÂ not protesting.
Further, Trump’s “veiled threat” to “be careful” hadÂ nothing to do with suggesting she be harmed. He wasÂ actually suggesting she ‘be careful’ to not incite violence against him or members of his administration because it could come back to hauntÂ her.
And apparently, it has.
That’s not Trump’s fault. That’sÂ Maxine Waters fault. You can’t call for the president of the United States and his staff to be physically confronted and harmed and not expect some fallout from that.
You also can’t say some of the most divisive things about our president — that he’s immoral, he’s illegitimate, he’s not ‘your’ president, all things Waters has said — and not expect pushback.
Again, we sayÂ clearly: Violence isÂ not the way to solve our political differences.
But as this episode proves, violence can beget violence. So the lesson here is toÂ dial back the dog-whistling inflammatory rhetoric.
Can Maxine do that?
