President Trump: Maxine Waters Just Handed Republicans 2018 Victory


President Trump thanks Maxine Waters for handing Republicans 2018 victory

 President Trump has thanked Rep. Maxine Waters for ensuring Republicans win big during the November mid-terms.  Waters’ (D-Calif.) was caught on camera telling Democratic voters to go out and riot earlier this week at a rally:

“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.”

Thehill.com reports: And then on MSNBC she doubled down:

“The people are going to turn on them. They’re going to protest. They’re going to absolutely harass them until they decide that they’re going to tell the President, ‘No, I can’t hang with you.’”

What Rep. Waters advocates is a long way from simply speech, or name calling, or even civil protest.  She is calling for physically threatening, personally scary, and personally targeted mob action.

Many in the media, per pattern, are now attempting to reduce it to false equivalence – “Feud over civility in politics escalates amid Trump insults” was a Washington Post headline on Tuesday.  Alternatively, others are trying the trope that President Trump’s comments in response to just such treatment are the real “threat” to “silence dissent” — never mind that the dissent has been deafening since the election.

But voters know the difference between incivility, social media screeds, and organized protests with proper protections in place for protestors and the public, on the one hand, and pop up mobs physically stalking, harassing, and intimidating the personal lives of those with whom they disagree.

That’s the language and tactics of goons, designed to chill, silence, and frighten, and intended to get out of hand, where someone does get hurt — because that is what happens when mobs feed on their own righteousness, or when the demonization and dehumanization inspires someone to become a one man angel of vengeance — think Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-Ariz.) or Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) and the GOP baseball team.

Why would someone advocate for that?

The existential threat Trump represents has to be devastating  to those whose identity and understanding of the world was tied to the status given in certain circles to the capacity to speak and write persuasively and compellingly about complicated policy matters, or to those who had mastered how things were done in Washington, and expected long sinecures in that game.

Everything they knew to be so — that each word they heard as hateful would be Trump’s end, that he couldn’t possibly win, that having won that at best he couldn’t possibly accomplish anything, and more likely would make things worse — has failed to bear out.

Worse, it has failed to come out despite their best efforts to ensure that their predictions came to pass. It is one thing to fail for want of trying, but worse to fail when you’re giving it your all.

They have two avenues — the impossibly hard one of being willing to go back and re-examine their core assumptions and their blaming of others (the Russians, the racists), and doubling down in shouting about the horrible movie they see unfolding before them, ratcheting up the rhetoric, thinking that if they just shout louder the ears won’t be so deaf.

But it won’t work — indeed it will backfire.

In work we did before the election, voters who were on the fence deeply disliked Trump for the expected reasons — they just disliked Hillary too. But Trump supporters were no admirers of Trump’s language or character — indeed, they could enumerate in far greater detail all his reported failings and areas of deep concern.

The difference was that Trump supporters thought the country was at a point of crisis. They believed what it needed was not a man of standard character who would yet again promise but not deliver — indeed particularly after Bill Clinton who cared about character? They thought that despite those flaws, Trump’s other hardened traits were required to withstand the vortex of Washington opinion, fight for them, and thereby save the country.

Now consider the context of Waters’ call, in which, per a CBS poll, only 21 percent of the country favor releasing illegal immigrant families into the country and trusting them to report back for a later hearing.

No longer is it just Trump voters, but many others who don’t favor “catch and release”, and who may not like Trump or how he does what he does, but like how things are going. They observe the shouting louder, and how that has morphed into the personal targeting of ICE and DHS and administration staff and their children, and Waters’ call to intimidation by pop-up mob.

What they perceive is a profoundly repellent track to anarchy, with which they do not want to be associated. And for many, they believe, should Maxine and #Resist prevail, that pretty soon it will be they themselves whom will be socially ok to subject to outraged protest, everywhere, over everything, at the mall, at the movies, in restaurants, in gas stations, for the heresy of their views.

You can understand Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and other wiser Democrats trying to counter the Waters way.  Ditto Trump, smelling how bad this is for Democrats, cheerfully exploiting it by linking the Democratic party to Maxine Waters.

But for the good of the country, let’s revisit President Obama’s words:

“At a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized, at a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who think differently than we do, it’s important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we are talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds.”


Protestors demand Maxine Waters arrest outside her home

 Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters got a taste of her own medicine on Wednesday, when a small group of voters showed up outside her mansion demanding her arrest.

Protestors from Patriot Picket chanted for police to arrest Waters following her public call for violent riots against Republicans last Saturday.

 

 Rep. Maxine Waters is wanted by police after she physically assaulted a female journalist who questioned her support for violent riots against Republicans.  

Conservative journalist Laura Loomer filed a criminal complaint with police on Tuesday, claiming that Ms. Waters assaulted her three times during the interview.

Laura Loomer reports: Today I filed a police report in Washington, D.C. to press charges against Congresswoman Maxine Waters for assaulting me.

Laura Loomer @LauraLoomer

ALERT ALERT

1 Billion Dollar Net Worth!!! Oberlin College Claims Poverty To Avoid Paying Punitive Damages To Gibson’s Bakery

Although IRS reports show the university is worth around $1 billion, Oberlin College still claimed poverty to avoid paying punitive damages to Gibson’s Bakery.

As Breitbart News reported this week, the far-left Oberlin College lost a defamation case filed by Gibson’s Bakery after a local jury found the university liable for falsely accusing the family bakery of racism.

The jury ordered Oberlin on Friday to pay Gibson’s $11.2 million in compensatory damages for defamation and intentional interference with a business.

Legal Insurrection reported on Thursday that “the jury awarded a total of $33 million in punitive damages, which will probably be reduced by the court to $22 million because of the state law cap at twice compensatory.”

Legal Insurrection has been following the case for two years — since the beginning — and reports that the school’s only defense against a sizable punitive award is to pretend it is poor, despite holding assets that amount to a billion — with a “b” — dollars and despite paying some of its staffers more than a half-million dollars a year:

Oberlin College was so hellbent on getting the message out that their cash liquidity was in such dire straits — as the eight-person jury was figuring out if they wish to add $22.4 million to the school’s legal verdict bill — that they brought out the school’s president, Carmen Twillie Ambar to the stand to tell that part the story.

“We’ve created deficits … and over the next ten years, if this continues, that is unsustainable and we will not exist,” Ambar told the jury. She even indicated the school’s grants — about $60 million a year from the school, and lots of students get those scholarships as only 10% of them pay the full $70,000 a year — were important to preserve as “the accessibility of education” was a key component of the school’s purpose.

However…

The college has more than $1 billion in funds and net assets according to the latest IRS 990 form, an endowment fund that had grown from $440 million to $887 million in the last 20 years, and because of its non-profit status, pays no taxes on any property it owns.

It also had 18 members of their administration making more than $100,00 a year. The president and chief financial officer of the school were both making more than $500,000 a year.

Grifters gonna grift…

The day after Donald Trump won the presidency, this nutball school apparently decided to take out its impotent woke-rage on this poor bakery, which has been part of the Oberlin community for more than a century.

It all started when three Oberlin students (who would later plead guilty in a plea deal) attempted to steal bottles of wine.

The proprietors caught the students and, while attempting to hold them until police arrived, were allegedly roughed up by the shoplifters. But because the students are black and the proprietors white — and with no respect for due process or facts — Oberlin staffers and students decided some vigilantism was in order and did everything in their considerable power to destroy this local bakery forever, to smite it off the map.

Classes were canceled so hundreds of students could protest in front of the small store while enjoying free food and drink, courtesy of the school. School staffers handed out fliers that basically described the family-owned bakery as the local branch of the KKK.

As a result, the bakery had to lay off almost all of its employees and barely avoided bankruptcy.

In the end, the three shoplifters said race had nothing to do with what happened.

For those of you interested in incurring $200,000 in debt before you even enter the workforce, it looks as though you can major in Mob Justice at Oberlin.
