MAXINE WATERS LASHES OUT: "IF YOU SHOOT ME, YOU BETTER SHOOT STRAIGHT"

Rep Maxine Waters (D-CA) is blaming a series of death threats on comments made by President Trump over Twitter, following her call last weekend for the public to form into mobs and physically confront members of the Trump administration.

"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," said Waters.

Addressing a crowd in Los Angeles on Saturday, Waters, 79, packaged the entirety of her detractors into the same category as would-be KKK assassins in the same breath, and then insinuated that if they don't successfully take her out she would become "like a wounded animal."

“I know that there are those who are talking about censuring me, talking about kicking me out of Congress, talking about shooting me, talking about hanging me,” Waters told the crowd in Los Angeles.

“All I have to say is this, if you shoot me you better shoot straight, there’s nothing like a wounded animal.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My Dear Representative Waters; as a 69 year old Methodist choral conductor, and Christian Pacifist Activist, I wish no one any physical harm.

But what you are advocating, which I can only characterise, as "mobocracy", is the most toxic energy I can imagine with which to poison the political process in this country.

Physical harm to anyone, from either party, for their political beliefs, is opening the door to complete dictatorship.; I would like to hope that inspite of our political divisions, neither one of us would want to be the agent responsible for bringing this about.

Your district, the 43rd, has been "engineered" (some would say, gerrymandered) to create a "safe seat" for Democrats in Congress. But if you are going to make it a "bully pulpit" for violence, you are not representing the people who put you there, or their needs and concerns.

Your party is behaving like a massively obstructionist element in Congress, and appears to be singularly, almost pathologically, incapable of agreeing with the Republicans on anything, including immigration, which is of great concern for many in the Greater LA area.

So, can you possibly abandon this platform of insult, confront, and hurt people who believe differently from you, and go back to the business of actually doing what you were hired by the people of the 43rd Congressional District, which is really represent their needs and concerns?!?

I and your constituents, are thanking you in advance on this.
