Treatment of Republican lawmakers, administration officials and supporters of President Donald Trump have gone from rancorous to dangerous.
Every day it seems we see a new level of hatred being directed at the legions of supporters of both the president and his party.
Just recently, crank Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters actually called for her backers and those of the Marxist Left to physically confront members of POTUS Trump’s Cabinet and administration. That’s outrageous — and it’s dangerous as well.
What’s more, it could even be illegal.
“If you think we’re rallying now, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet. Already, you have members of your Cabinet that are being booed out of restaurants who have protesters taking up at their house, who say, ‘No peace, no sleep. No peace, no sleep,’” she told supporters at a rally.
“God is on OUR side! On the side of the children. On the side of what’s right. On the side of what’s honorable. And so, let’s stay the course,” she bellowed. “Let’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, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”
Well, there’s no way to know which side God is on and Auntie Maxine and her perpetually triggered Democrats don’t get to decide what is and is not moral and “right” in our country.
Beyond that, though, according to U.S. Code 2101 on Riots, what Waters did was clearly a violation of the law. The specific language states that anyone “with intent to aid or abet any person in inciting or participating in or carrying on a riot or committing any act of violence in furtherance of a riot” can either be fined, imprisoned for up to five years, or both.
But so far the only ‘condemnation’ she’s received is a rebuke from House Speaker Paul Ryan, who has implored her to apologize to the president and his administration.
“When we, in this democracy, are suggesting that because we disagree with people on political views, on policy views, on philosophical views, that we should resort to violence and harassment and intimidation that’s dangerous for our society, dangerous for our democracy, and she should apologize and there’s just no place for that in our public discourse,” he said.

Paul Ryan is, of course, a Republican.
How many Democrats have joined him in publicly condemning Waters? A couple.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., are in a pitiful minority of members of their party who have called on Waters to back off those kinds of provocations and not simply apologize but resign.
“I strongly disagree with those who advocate harassing folks if they don’t agree with you,” Schumer during a floor speech. “If you disagree with a politician, organize your fellow citizens to action and vote them out of office. But no one should call for the harassment of political opponents. That’s not right. That’s not American.”
Democrats and their sycophantic soulmates in the pretend establishment media have been cheering on and otherwise enabling this kind of treatment of the Trump administration and its supporters. Many are comparing Republicans and POTUS Trump to Nazis, who killed six million Jews and millions of others by starting World War II.
The Democratic outrage machine is creating the impression that it’s okay to carry out violence against Trump voters because the Left has decided they deserve it. All of this dog whistling is going to get someone killed.
