Pelosi and Booker Defend Maxine Waters’ Call to Harass Trump Supporters

Yesterday Maxine Waters announced her support for the rise in Trump administration officials being harassed in their private lives.

She told a crowd, “Already, you have members of your Cabinet that are being booed out of restaurants,” she told a crowd, “who have protesters taking up at their house, who say, ‘No peace, no sleep. No peace, no sleep.’” She continued; “After telling the audience that God was on their side, she concluded: “Mr. President, we will see you every day, every hour of the day, everywhere that we are to let you know you cannot get away with this!” (RELATED: Maxine Waters Calls for Violence Against Trump Supporters).

And if you thought those comments were indefensible, they are…. just not among the modern Left. Nancy Pelosi somehow managed to find a way to blame the insane comments on Trump.

In response to a story about Maxine’s comments, Pelosi tweeted “In the crucial months ahead, we must strive to make America beautiful again. Trump’s daily lack of civility has provoked responses that are predictable but unacceptable. As we go forward, we must conduct elections in a way that achieves unity from sea to shining sea.”

That prompted a classic reply from Trump. “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!”

And Pelosi wasn’t the only one. New Jersey’s Sen. Cory Booker is also defending Maxine’s craziness. In an interview with MSNBC’s Andrew Mitchell, Booker said “Yes, you should protest. Yes, you should confront evil and injustice,” he said. “But do it in the ways that Martin Luther King did … Recognizing the dignity of even those who you oppose, even those who are trying to destroy you.”

He further elaborated; “And so, yes, if I saw an administrator out and about, there’s nothing wrong with confronting that person, but not to lead with love and to do it in a way that is more reflective of the values that we are trying to reject in our country is unacceptable to me.”

So in other words; Cory is saying you should go out and harass people who politically disagree with you….. but do so with love.

Something tells me most liberals won’t be taking the second part of that advice. While liberals like Booker and Pelosi have rushed to Waters’ defense, conservatives are demanding the Democrat apologize for her comments.
