Maxine Waters Claims She Never Called for Violence, After Watching Video of Her Calling for Violence

If the Republicans said that water is wet, there’s a good chance Maxine might try to prove them wrong. 

Congresswoman Maxine Waters has been quite the rabble-rouser as of late, flinging fiery vitriol from all corners of the liberal spectrum each and every time she’s given an opportunity to do so.

One of her most infamous incidents came as the California legislator demanded that her constituents confront Republicans wherever they be, making them feel unwelcome and uncomfortable.

When confronted with this reality on television, however, Waters seemed to deny what she had insinuated...even after being forced to watch a clip of the call to action during the interview.

In a video clip, waters said, “Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up, 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. You tell them that they’re not welcome anymore anywhere! We’ve got to get the children connected to their parents. The children are suffering.”

Anchor Ali Velshi said, “I was able to play that clip that you were referring to from June 23rd, 2018, where you’re asking people to confront Republicans at department stores, gas stations, and restaurants and tell them they’re not welcome. That’s the stuff that Donald Trump’s attorneys say proves that you and others are doing the same thing Donald Trump was doing on January 6th and in the days before that. What’s the difference?”

And here’s where it gets wild:

Velshi said, “So let me ask you because this is what they’re going to say. Can you say that you have not glorified or encouraged violence against Republicans?”

Waters said, “Absolutely, I can say it. As a matter of fact, if you look at the words that I used, the strongest thing I was was to tell them they’re not welcome, talk to them, tell them they’re not welcome. I didn’t say go and fight. I didn’t say anybody was going to have any violence. So they can’t make that statement.”
