During a Congressional hearing, a high-ranking Democrat was caught on video directly inciting violence against political opponents.
California Representative Maxine Waters is no stranger to inciting violence, or to outright lying. In a recently released video of her speaking at a Congressional Black Caucus hearing, she does both.
Whether she is truly deranged, or just a liar, it’s hard to tell. As Waters begins the clip, she claims that conservatives are terrorists, targeting Democrats and minorities.
“These are right-wing domestic terrorists who we are targeted by, and they intend to have power with this president. Even after he is no longer the president, this president is headed towards a civil war, and we’re the object of their hate,” she says.
The left has been destroying cities, burning down businesses, and violently attacking police and civilians all year, and not a single Democrat has called them out for this behavior. Conservatives have always denounced violence, and are continuing to do so now after the sole major incident of violence perpetrated by right-wing protestors occurred at the Capitol building on January 6.
Democrats like Maxine Waters don’t seem to see the double standard in their actions. In her rant, she goes on to call for forced diversity and inclusion.
“So it is not only about protection and security for the Capitol and us, we need to talk about what we’re going to do to force diversity and inclusion and protection for our communities,” Waters says.

Telling her already violent and rage-filled base that conservatives are out to get them will only serve to further divide the country, and may lead to actual violent acts being perpetrated against conservatives.
Maxine’s Past Violent Rhetoric
This isn’t the first time Maxine Waters called for violence against her political opponents. At a Los Angeles rally on June 23, 2018, she called for her supporters to harass and physically remove Trump administration officials from public spaces.
“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!” Waters said.
After her comments, left-wing radical “protestors” started harassing Republicans like former Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell at their homes and at restaurants.
Representative Steve Scalise was seriously injured after being shot by a radical leftist on June 14, 2017, during a practice session for the annual Congressional Baseball Game for Charity in Alexandria, Virginia. He called Maxine Waters out for her incitement.
“I don’t think there’s any place for that kind of incivility of inciting harassment or violence of any sort. I mean, I’ve seen it firsthand,” said Scalise.
“I’ve seen the video from some of these incidents. It’s beyond offensive. I think some of it borders on illegal, when you see what some of these people are doing, getting in somebody’s face, trying to taunt them into a violent act. That’s not what our democracy is about,” he added.
