Divided Over Demonstrations

Democrat leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi issued statements yesterday attempting to distance themselves from Maxine Waters’ call for more demonstrations against Trump officials.

Waters attempted to defend herself by insisting that she only called for “peaceful protests.”  But Waters has a history of fanning the flames.

For example, she labeled the Rodney King riots an “insurrection” and called them “a defining moment.”  Those riots took place in 1992 when Donald Trump was still a New York businessman.   More than 50 people were killed.  Two thousand people were injured.  Fires and looting destroyed scores of businesses and caused more than $1 billion in property damage.

Some “defining moment.”

But the left has its marching orders.  Demonstrators carrying “wanted” posters showed up at the home of Trump aide Stephen Miller, hoping to harass him last night.

Speaking of harassment, the Washington Post ran a news story about Sarah Huckabee Sanders getting kicked out of the Red Hen restaurant.  They interviewed the owner who said that she felt compelled to act on the spur of the moment, but insisted she really is not a confrontational person.

Here’s what the Post didn’t tell us:  When Sanders and her in-laws left the Red Hen, Sarah left the area while the rest of her family went to a different restaurant.  Governor Mike Huckabee told Fox News yesterday that “the owner of the Red Hen then organized an effort to go and scream at them from the sidewalk at the other restaurant.”

These people yelling “Fascist!” at normal conservative views are using Goebbel’s handbook.  This is what actual fascists do to their enemies.  They harass them and attempt to intimidate them into silence and submission.
