Maxine Waters: Harass Trump Admin. Staff Everywhere, Give Them 'No Peace,' 'God Is on Our Side!'
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) urged liberal protesters to harass members of the Trump administration, calling upon the name of God to encourage liberal activists that He is on "our side."
"Already, you have members of this cabinet that are being booed out of restaurants, who have protesters taking up at their house," Waters declared. She praised these protesters for chanting, "No peace! No sleep!"
The congresswoman went on to attack Attorney General Jeff Sessions for quoting the Bible to defend enforcing immigration law. "While you try and quote the Bible, Jeff Sessions, and others, you really don’t know the Bible," Waters declared.
"God is on our side!"
She then went on to specifically advocate for continually harassing Trump administration officials, particularly members of the cabinet.
"If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, at 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 urged.
Last week, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen faced protesters in a restaurant and outside her home. Demonstrators confronted White House adviser Stephen Miller in a Washington, D.C., restaurant.
Infamously, on Friday, the owner of the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Va., kicked out White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, arguing that the Trump spokeswoman violated her restaurant's values.
Democrats have already called for an investigation into Sanders' tweet — arguing that by reporting her exclusion on her official White House Twitter account, the Trump spokeswoman violated ethics rules. Talk about kicking someone when she's down.
The Left has not only politicized everything, now Democrats are directly eroding America's political civility by explicitly targeting political figures for exclusion from everyday businesses. Americans used to understand that whatever qualms they had with a politician or government official, they should not target them in everyday affairs.
On a personal note, a major political figure attends my church. While I and other congregants would love to mob him, we understand that he goes to church to worship God, and we respect the barrier between the personal and professional.
Were all liberal protesters to take Waters' words to heart, they would have to protest my church. Not only would this harass the Trump administration official there, but it would also disrupt the worship of God and bring political issues into a sphere where they are less important.
Waters invoked God to urge protesters to harass public officials. By contrast, the Bible urges Christians to pray for those in authority.
