Congresswoman Maxine Waters, an extraordinarily low IQ person, has become, together with Nancy Pelosi, the Face of the Democrat Party. She has just called for harm to supporters, of which there are many, of the Make America Great Again movement. Be careful what you wish for Max!

Waters, from California and a committed anti-Trumper, has called for public harassment of Trump officials. Several other leftists have also publicly been inciting hatred against Trump administration officials, and political pundits are anticipating that their protests will soon turn violent.
One DHS staff member had a burned, decapitated animal carcass left on the front porch, according to Fox News.
Last weekend saw a chanting mob camped outside Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s house; White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was kicked out of a Virginia restaurant with her family; and Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi was screamed at and spat on by “progressives” in Tampa.
Nielsen had to leave a working dinner at a Mexican restaurant in Washington after a leftist mob harrassed her. On Friday, a mob gathered outside Nielsen’s Virginia townhouse, chanting “no justice, no sleep” and playing recordings of immigrant children crying.
On the same day Sanders was asked to leave the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia. But the Virginia restaurant owner who kicked out Sanders, has had to resign from a local business group after a backlash against her.
Stephanie Wilkinson has stepped down from her position as executive director of Main Street Lexington, and the Red Hen restaurant has remained closed since the incident last week.
Michael Graham, a columnist for the Boston Herald, denounced the restaurant’s attitude. “The treatment of Sanders at the Red Hen restaurant is the very incarnation of the double standard many conservative Americans feel they’ve lived under for years,” Graham said.
But far-left host of Last Week Tonight, John Oliver requested that his audience send obscene images to Attorney General Jeff Sessions anyway and he posted Sessions’ email account on air, while actor Peter Fonda on Twitter urged leftists to “rip Barron Trump from his mother’s arms and put him in a cage with pedophiles”. Barron is the president’s youngest teenage son.
A far-left columnist for a website owned by Univision Communications has even said that anti-Trump resistance should take the form of domestic terrorism. In an article entitled This Is Just the Beginning, Hamilton Nolan writes, “This is all going to get more extreme. And it should,” adding that Trump administration officials should not be able “to live their lives in peace”.
Hamilton justified his calls for extreme violence by claiming that the Trump administration was implementing “fascism” and “white nationalism” with its border policies.
President Donald Trump singled out Waters at a rally in Fargo on Wednesday, after she continued calls for violence against Trump officials, Fox News reported. He called Waters is the “new” leader of the Democratic Party. “[Waters] practically was telling people the other day to assault [people],” Trump said.
Trump was commenting on what Waters had said in a speech earlier this week. “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,” Waters told her audience.
After Waters’ initial comment, Trump said she was “an extraordinarily low IQ person”, but Waters again later told MSNBC that leftists were “going to absolutely harass them [Trump officials]”.
Trump tweeted on Monday that Waters was advocating “harm” to his own supporters. But Waters again encouraged Americans to “harass them [Trump administration officials] until they decide that they’re going to tell the President, ‘no I can’t hang with you'”.
Fox suggested that Republicans needed to get concealed carry permits to keep weapons with them at all times to protect themselves against attacks.

Historian Michael Beschloss told Politico that the growing animosity was “a new disheartening sign of a country that is becoming more divided by the hour.” He added: “It is almost beginning to sound like some of the things that happened before the Civil War. It’s a polarized country.”
