As you may have noticed, Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) is at it again. This time, she has picked up on the fact that some of the leftist thugs in our midst have taken to harassing members of the Trump administration, refusing to serve them when they sit down at an eatery, driving them from restaurants, and making a racket outside their homes.
Here is what she said: “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.”
To their credit, Charles Schumer and Nancy Pelosi have distanced themselves from Congresswoman Waters, and Paul Ryan has quite properly called on her to apologize for her remarks — which, of course, she has not done.
Let me suggest that it is time for the Republicans in the House of Representatives to show a little backbone (or pretend that they have one) and introduce a motion censuring Maxine Waters for her remarks.
There will be midterm elections in November. It is the perfect time to separate the sheep from the goats and force the Democrats in the House of Representatives to take a stand against the species of incivility advocated by Maxine Waters … or stand in her defense. The people of this country have a right to know where the Democrats stand.
