Having received the press over canceling scheduled appearances in Alabama and Texas this weekend because of “hostile mail,” including a “very serious death threat,” Rep. Maxine Waters declared she “has no fear” while speaking Saturday at a “Keep [Illegal Immigrant] Families Together” rally in Los Angeles
Waters ramped up her aggressive rhetoric while offering herself up as a martyr, and fell back on a familiar refrain: “Today, I say impeach 45!”
“We’re going to be in these streets until the children are reconnected with their parents,” Waters told the crowd. “Now, we have some members of Congress who are intimidated. I have no fear. I’m in this fight.”
The remark was met with a rousing cheer from the lemmings looking on, which may suggest that the California Democrat canceled the other events for a more politically advantageous appearance.
“I know there are those talking about censoring me, kicking me out of Congress, talking about shooting me, talking about hanging me,” Waters said. “All I have to say is this: if you shoot me, you better shoot straight — there’s nothing like a wounded animal.”
After offering “to make whatever sacrifices needed to be made,” Waters turned her venom on Trump, saying he has been in the White House “too long” and calling for the president’s impeachment.
“I am not about to let this country go by the way of Donald Trump,” she said. “We are sick and tired of him. He’s been there too long. They dare me to say impeach him. Today, I say, impeach 45! Today, I say, Donald Trump, this is not your country to do with whatever you want to do. This country belongs to all of us.”
Which, in the eyes of Democrats, who openly call to abolish U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement as they advocate for illegal immigrants, means the country belongs to non-citizens here illegally.
Much like she called for a campaign of intimidation and harassment against Trump administration officials, Water again talked about getting “in the faces” of those who may disagree.
“We are going to be in the faces of all of those who don’t get it. Who don’t understand it. We are going to make them come to the moment when they will say, my goodness, I guess those people really meant it,” she told the crowd.
