Maxine Waters' Vigilantes

Postby High Power » Tue Jun 26, 2018 2:57 pm

Representative Maxine Waters has been in the news lately; calling for Democrats to harass members of President Trump's cabinet.

Last Friday she said; "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."

She later denied that she was calling for any harm to come to anyone. Nevertheless, her rhetoric was very clear. Before instructing the crowd to surround members of the cabinet she told them to show them "no peace no sleep." She says this at 4:45 in the video below. To be fair to Representative Waters, the entire video should be watched. After watching the video, you tell me; was she or was she not inciting people around the country to commit acts of violence against members of President Trump's administration?

Now for my next question. Before I ask the question, I do want to preface it by saying that I normally adhere to the "gray man" concept. That means not trying to stick out in a crowd or daring to be different, not attracting unwanted attention. Hopefully, you know what I mean.

Now to the question. Let's say you are going out to dinner and someone spots you (with or without a MAGA hat). They identify you as a person who doesn't align with their beliefs and they "gather a crowd" as Representative Waters suggests.

As crowds sometimes do, things begin to get out of hand and you are surrounded. People try to get "in your face." The rhetoric takes an ugly turn. By now, you can see where I'm going with this...

With that said, what are your thoughts on getting out of the situation without drawing a sidearm to keep you and/or your loved ones safe? What if you have no choice but to draw your sidearm?

One of my take-sways from a TDI class was that if you let them get close to you, you really can't react quickly enough to stop an attack. Then, if you don't draw and shoot, you lose. If you
do draw and shoot, you still lose.

I am not 100% certain, but I do not believe it is illegal in and of itself to draw a firearm. Given a circumstance as Mad Max is asking her fellow comrades to put us in, I'd say justification has already been met as it stands now. I - we are now on the defensive from harm from this point forward from the "tolerant" left.


As far as the part of your question that I bolded above - there's no more thoguht to it. If that's the last choice than it's already been made - do it and go home alive and hopefully ininjured. Any reprocussions that come after that are better than what could have happened.

This makes me think that it is not a question of "IF" but "WHEN" this scenario will happen. When it does, I hope there is plenty of video evidence showing the necessity for armed self-defense measures.

Saw a post today which sums it up.

In advocating Liberals Only restaurants, the Democrats are returning to their roots of Whites Only restaurants.

Let them have their Liberals-Only restaurants. It makes it easier to avoid danger and a generally bad time. :D

Along with Marxist Waters we should not forget Comrade Fonda's tweet about kidnapping a 12-year-old kid. So tell me how this doesn't advocate violent and criminal activity.

He has deleted the tweets and apologized for his kidnapping comments. Regardless of the apology, his comments are still out there for other nut-cases to act on.

First prize goes to the one who can see a common theme with the photos below...

Some one should remind them that many a tyrant, whether it be nazi, socialist, or facist, met their fate at the end of a rope when the hostilities were over.
I for one, pray that it does not come to that.
But it seems this generation of elite's and "progressives" fail to understand the history of their failed policies and the principles on which this nation was founded.
They will fail, but at what cost to all of us ?
With Justice Kennedy's retirement, we are going to see an all out attack to keep a conservative off the court. They will fail, but only if the GOP grows some testicles, and shut down the mobs.
It is going to get ugly.

Imagine what will happen if Ginsberg or Breyer bite the dust in the next two years.

I'm reminded of stories like this one.

GRAPHIC: Crocodile eats dog that tormented it for years

Pippa the terrier had a big reputation, far bigger than her diminutive size.

For more than a decade, the sandy-colored hound was famous for tormenting a large crocodile named Casey in Australia’s Northern Territory.

Pippa, also known as “Dumb Blonde,” would bark and nip at the reptile’s tail, chasing it back into the river that flows around Goat Island, where she lived with her owner Kai Hansen.

Hansen and his 15-pound pup were the subjects of an ABC News story last year about their lives in the outback, southeast of Darwin.

"A little terrier should not do things like that. But should I stop her? I don't know, she got away with it for 10 years," he said.


There have been other stories from here in the states of gators eating dogs that harass them.

There's a point at which the bear or 'gator get tired of being poked with a stick.

I sometimes post this to get my point across.

DO NOT stare into the eyes of this guy. You'll find that a lot of time has passed without knowing how. There aren't many images that do this to me.

It will stop after some of them spend a few nights in jail for running their big mouth. :twisted:

Hannity didn't hesitate to lay the blame at Marxist Waters' feet after the shooting at the Capitol Gazette Newsroom in Annapolis, Maryland.

I believe that lefties like Mad Max are trying to goad their followers into provoking conservatives into violence, preferably with a gun, even if it means some of their followers get killed. My MAGA hat has been staying home lately but not my EDC.
