Maxine Waters Supporters Surround Vehicle, Steal Flag and Set It on Fire

Maxine Waters supporters burn American flag

Maxine Waters issued a warning to her supporters that a right-wing group planned to protest her office, only to have her supporters show up instead chanting “black power” and burning the American flag.

A far-right militia group known as the Oath Keepers had originally planned a demonstration in front of Waters’ office due to her incitement of violence against conservatives and as a show of support for immigration enforcement.

The group’s members typically dress in military gear and bring rifles with them to their protests.

Maxine issued a statement asking her supporters to avoid the group at all costs.

“I am requesting those individuals and groups planning a counter-protest to not be baited into confronting the Oath Keepers with any demonstrations in opposition -such an occurrence would only exacerbate tensions and increase the potential for conflict,” she said.

But in a plot twist, the Oath Keepers never showed up, instead, they said they didn’t want to cause problems and saught to “ensure peace” according to the Los Angeles Times.

Supporters of the congresswoman, meanwhile, ignored her advice and showed up regardless, holding an unprovoked counterprotest but causing shocking problems all on their own.

According to CBS News, Maxine’s fans surrounded a vehicle that was occupied by “two men who appeared to be white,” with the driver being forced to stop.

The protesters then opened the truck doors and stole a flag that was flying on a pole in the bed of the truck before the driver could hit the gas and flee the scene.

Photos emerged of the protesters stomping on the American flag then setting it on fire while chanting “black power” and “resist!”

“This is not the American flag, this is their flag,” they were also heard shouting.

CBS Los Angeles also reports that Waters’ supporters could be heard chanting, “F— the government, America was never great.”

Another man showed up outside of Waters’ office because he “was curious what this protest was all about.”

He denied being an Oath Keeper and explained that he has a son in the military.

Video posted to social media shows the man being forcibly escorted to his vehicle.

All of this violence – the flag burning, accosting a vehicle, forcing a man back to his car – is wholly endorsed by the California congresswoman. (RELATED: Report: Maxine Waters Cancels Events After Receiving Threats).

She has repeatedly encouraged and incited people to harass conservatives in public and her low IQ followers are just responding in kind.

“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,” she told supporters.

That’s exactly what these far-left lunatics did outside her office. They created a crowd. They pushed back on the man who has a son in the military. And they told the truck driver he wasn’t welcome anymore, anywhere.

Maxine’s rhetoric led Florida Congressman Ron DeSantis to call her “the pied piper for the unhinged left with her rantings and ravings.” (RELATED: GOP Rep. Ron DeSantis Says Maxine Waters Is Not Fit To Serve In Congress).

“I don’t think she’s fit to serve” in Congress, he added.

She certainly has some explaining to do after encouraging a riot in front of her office Thursday evening.
