Maxine Waters

Maxine Waters, the California Congresswoman who routinely harasses President Trump and members of his cabinet, has herself become a target.

Waters, 79, canceled two appearances on Thursday after receiving what she calls “hostile mail” containing “serious threats”.

Waters immediately blamed Trump for making a “veiled threat” against her on Twitter.com after she called for members of his cabinet to be harassed in public.

“The President has continued to lie and falsely claim that I encouraged people to assault his supporters, while also offering a veiled threat that I should ‘be careful’.”

“There was one very serious death threat made against me on Monday from an individual in Texas which is why my planned speaking engagements in Texas and Alabama were cancelled (sic) this weekend,” she said in a statement. “This is just one in several very serious threats the United States Capitol Police are investigating in which individuals threatened to shoot, lynch, or cause me serious bodily harm.”

Waters made headlines earlier in the week when she called for crowds of demonstrators to “push back” against members of Trump’s cabinet and run them out of restaurants and gas stations.

The Congresswoman put out the call after White House press secretary Sarah Sanders and her children were kicked out of The Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Va. by co-owner Stephanie Wilkinson, who is related to liberal anti-Trumper actress Meryl Streep.

Wilkinson has since been forced to resign from a Lexington business group and the Red Hen is now closed indefinitely.

As a result of Waters statements, Sarah Sanders became the first press secretary to receive Secret Service protection.

Waters’ hostile language drew a rebuke from NY Senator Chuck Schumer who said her behavior was “not American”.

    She should be able to take the harassment, especially when she is calling for others to dish it out. Momma said if you cant take it, dont dish it out!!

  • Carrington

    Calling on people to protest and speak out to people who propagate hatred and receiving DEATH THREATS are different things.

  • KLove

    The rhetoric is stupid on both sides…what she said can in fact be construed as inciting violence….same as when Trump says “rough him up” or whatever, can also be construed as inciting violence…..im gonna call it fair on both sides

  • KcoolMuziq

    Maxine speaks at my church periodically and she is a VERY passionate woman on a NON STOP crusade to have Trump IMPEACHED!

  • SweetTEE

    Ion know..I like Maxine, but she definitely shouldn’t be telling folks to walk up to these people in public and speak their peace. It’s no different than what Trump did bc the end result will be the same. And I don’t think anyone would like to be harassed out of a restaurant with their kids. Now they have a valid excuse for showing their ass. If we don’t want to be harassed by Trump supporters, we probably shouldn’t harass them..

  • Coy little wink

    Maxine girl, you can’t go hard then stay home. That’s not how any of this works.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Right. People are sick and tired of the hostility on both sides. Even across the pond they are shaking their heads at the juvenile behavior of our politicians. Meanwhile, Trump’s approval rating soared 10 points among Hispanics. So much for the fake news border children crisis. ?

  • MissHarlem

    One of the few who speaks out and in a field that doesn’t want her too. They always try to dismiss her on the floor as if she wouldn’t understand oppression etc. Not much of us on that floor speaking out. She’s to be respected by us at the least. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/199b570daf0c946aefdbe4eb0bc049ff84e2b2cd2ab86f33ea99428d575e0624.gif

  • Peace

    So Chucky Schumer calls Maxine UN American?
    yet she repping for illegal families the prine targets for Dems protest against Trump? Ok. Guess Brother Farrakhan was right when he called her out, Maxine , what that n___a say? Chucky dont give zero respect to blacks no matter what office you hold .

  • SweetTEE

    Yea, the hostility needs to cease if we want resolution. Meanwhile, those Hispanics are crazy af if they approve of Trump lol

  • Soda

    In none of my adult years have I ever been asked in person or by phone whether I approve of a politician, therefore I don’t believe polls. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d213a60b97b559b4a41feffb7784da17a6c3bf4b4abb9aad309df6bc439b2971.jpg “Even across the pond they are shaking their heads at the juvenile behavior of our politicians.”

  • MistaO

    She and other black representatives are a flat-out embarrassment. They went so hard for these illegals yet and all the struggles that black people have had even recently you have yet to hear one from one of those groups speak in support of black causes. These black quote-unquote Representatives do absolutely nothing for black people and haven’t for a very long time at the end of the day Donald Trump will have done more for the black situation in this country than any other president I firmly believe that.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    I agree. She’s asking people to group stalk/group harass folks and that is not okay. She would never want something like that done to her or the people she’s affiliated with. I may not agree with some of Trumps behavior or affiliations, but I’ve also heard that she’s very corrupt too. Smh. These politicians are all corrupt in my eyes.

  • SweetTEE

    Yes ma’am. She knows good and well that she would not appreciate if the tables turned. Next thing you know, white republicans and democrats will be out here killing each other and we gon feel the backlash. I need her to sit down and regroup.

  • NeverSurprised

    Unlike blacks, Hispanics are smart enough to support those who create job opportunities for them and their families. Hard working AMERICAN Hispanics don’t give a damn about some illegals at the border— many of whom were brought here by drug cartels. People who waited their turn and came here LEGALLY are taking advantage of the JOBS that Trump is providing, so naturally they approve of him.

    Blacks are the only ones dumb enough to moan and groan for everyone else, rather than focus on their OWN economic opportunities created by Trump. Keep being angry and dumb, black folks, while every other group passes you by — all while Maxine Waters is lounging in her $4mil house.

    From Bloomberg:
    “Black unemployment fell to 6.6 percent in April, the lowest in data dating back to 1972, while the jobless rate among Hispanics dipped to 4.8 percent, matching the lowest on record…”

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-05-04/black-and-hispanic-unemployment-in-america-reach-record-lows

  • NeverSurprised

    ????????????

    Lowest black unemployment on record under Trump. How many BLACK elected officials have ever uttered a word about job creation for their own people? The only thing they talk about is entitlements — the crumbs that keep blacks tethered to the welfare system. Our people needs JOBS, and that’s what Trump is providing.

    I don’t know if this is true but we have some serious issues in this country like an ever widening racial and political divide. I want real action and I want her colleagues to stand up as well. Let folks eat where they want. If the proprietor doesn’t like the customer they’ll probably just spit in their food anyway…

  • MissHarlem

    They speak out its not many of us on that floor at all. She is just the only one to shut their asses up when talking foolish.

  • GuestSTAR

    She should go give her speech behind one of those clear bullet proof windows with the NOI beside her as security.

    I like how outspoken she is.

  • J2PC

    They are too blinded by BS propaganda designed to stir their emotions to figure out that they are trapped in a mentality meant to keep them in dysfunctional in those types of impoverished, violent, struggling communities with failing public schools & housing.

    -while those they vote into gov’t jobs are laughing all the way to bank & refuses to live near their silly voters or attend those subpar/failing schools.

    That formula has worked for decades for the dem o cratz and they are not about to enlighten and encourage or lift up their poor voters in fear of allowing them to think for themselves and no longer feel need or emotionally desperate enough to vote. -the more they vote the more things stay the same or have worsen for a large swath of Black community.

    Those who are smarter manage to escape that dysfunctional maze designed to keep them trapped & highly independent on all things inner-city/urban.

  • J2PC

    This wasn’t about Trump because he is surrounded with best security team for protection. This is about all the other non-liberal voters that she wanted folks to go out & harass wherever they may be. -however, expect a pushback.

    For every action there is often an equal & opposite pushbach or reaction. -she is an irresponsible leader to say & start such a thing. Now, she has awaken a hornets nest that has zoomed in on her. It’s no fun when the same crap comes back to you. smh

  • J2PC

    All that ill-advise from liberal leaders will lead to is a bunch of Black or Brown folks ruining their good names, history or records via criminal arrests from committing violence; hate crimes, harassing voters, etc. -does Waters really care about “the people” or ruining their lives further??

  • BadAss Will

    You are aware articles dont be about Obama or Hillary but Sandra will include them for no reason so if i want to i will include.. Plus she bought up trump in this article. ???

  • Mark mcharm

    Why can’t you make a change ? I mean not to be a d…. But why can’t you be like marva collins or Berry Gordy why wait for politicians to change our community.

  • Mark mcharm

    No one is trapped the truth is Americans have gotten lazy black,white whatever nothing this idiot trump does is going to affect us changing things in our own communities we have to do the legwork not 72-year-old white men with low self-esteem.

  • SweetTEE

    That’s what she gon end up having to do. But she can’t talk slick then hide.

  • SweetTEE

    I was thinking she would have some type of protection other than “law enforcement”. Maybe she should make nice with some hood dudes.

  • Logan Roberts

    Welp ?

  • CocoBabe88

    Well someone could ask the same of you? Why can’t you? Why can’t you solely as one lone person go out and enact change for 36 million black folk. I mean that’s just a ridiculous statement. Everyone is not a natural politician. Everyone doesn’t possess that skill. Everyone is called to do something different in life. Politicians are politicians for a reason. They have trained and studied law and worked as attorneys and partners for decades. So now you want regular folk to do the job of congressional leaders being funded by our tax dollars in order to do their job??? That’s a foolish, thoughtless, dismissive, way of absolving responsibility from those made to be responsible.

  • Mark mcharm

    Doing my part in my community I just sent 3 children on my dime to sleep away camp because the Bronx is tripping right now , I am organizing movie outings and trips to msg in my city,it starts small and then things will get better. If you can take on one wayward child this summer and get them out of harms way you yourself have started change.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    She takes the worst pictures. Like Diane Feinstein, she should retire….too old to be in Congress.

  • CocoBabe88

    That’s what you’re supposed to do! You’re not special because you did something kind for somebody. Each man is responsible for himself and his family and to uphold the morale and standard of his community. I don’t know where you get this ridiculous idea of absolving congressional leaders of their jobs to protect citizens and enact legislation for the benefit of those who voted them in!

  • Mark mcharm

    Ok you have a nice life you are talking stupid and I have no time for it you are blocked.

  • CocoBabe88

    Hahahaaaa ? yeah that’s probably best. You lost that one buddy. Don’t be a sore loser ?

    At least somone gets it ? I started looking at how the black panthers fed our children,Berry Gordy took 500 dollars and made legends out of people in his neighborhood how can we let Trump stop us he cannot do anything we do not let him f trump and politicians.new can do this on our own.

  • Mark mcharm

    I unblocked you to asked you how old are you?? Think about how crazy you are sounding pro or con you are on a black womens blog because she decide to do for HERSELF and make money. Why cant you do that why wait for politicians to do what you can-do yourself.

    Truth!!

  • P0shzZ0la

    No…America’s so-called first black president was the one who should have been pushing for black people not for homosexuals and transgenders. Now you expect whitey to do it for you? Black people lost BIG TIME when Obama left office and basically gave black people the finger. Black people demanded NOTHING from Obama. It’s a wrap for black people in America. They’re pushing for the illegals and other foreigners to come to the country and demand their “civil rights.” So don’t expect from Trump what the incompetent, arrogant, anti-American Obama didn’t do! And Mad-Maxine is just a fool like the other black politicians who cater to their white masters. I’m not going back-and-forth with you about this….BYE….!

    I have no sympathy whatsoever for Maxine Waters because she has been advocating for violence against anyone that support President Trump.In fact she’s been trying to incite violence and now she has come up with this scheme looking for sympathy since her white liberal masters threw her butt under the bus. She needs to be thrown out of congress.

    Hannity accused Maxine for the shooting at the newspaper company and now he is trying to backtrack and say he didn’t say it. He even blamed it on Obama. Hannity was trying to see was the paper a Dump hater to say the man shot the place up because he hated Dump so therefore Maxine told him to do it. Come to find out the man had a individual feud with the paper for years. Hannity had to throw Dump in there when it wasn’t even necessary but he said nothing about that white boy who shot up the school and was a Dump supporter.

    Its unfortunate that she has allowed all this political rhetoric to turn her into a mad woman …
    She doesnt make any sense… She picked up the torch and went on the witch hunt from the begining of the Trump Presidency…. Its unfortunate that black Democrats allows that party to make them into Pinata and Puppets doing the white liberal Dirty work always leading BS charges and DNC agendas. The Loud Mouths for others … She is not using very good tactics and does not look political savy and the issues that she is championing are just pure Embarrassing…. Especially considering that illegal Immigration is impacting her district very hard. She doesn’t seem to bright. We have all seen how the Democrats left that other black woman hanging who was over the DNC after having her do their dirty work when Hillary was running. So Maxine is the open border, Illegal Immigration supporting Congress woman… in Los Angeles…. Shes Embarrassing as a black congresswoman.

    Dr. Ben Carson grew up dirt poor and learn a different mindset to help him get off the plantation. Now, he is a wealthy retired Neurosurgeon and a hired Cabinet Member for a POTUS. His children are well-educated and wealthy within their own right as well.

    -with a mind of his own, Carson doesn’t need to be retold how to become a liberal minded democrat again to remind him of his days when he was just a self-hating, knucklehead getting into trouble and going nowhere fast in life. ijs

  • J2PC

    Formally labed in history as yellow & red folks. In this case, Black & Brown folks going to jails or for-profit prisons are mostly Blacks & Latinos in America.

  • Bobby Peru

    He used liberal programs like welfare and college scholarships to go from rags to riches. The “liberal plantation” crap is just moronic rightwing propaganda

  • J2PC

    His Mother used welfare because he was her child. He didn’t apply for welfare, she did. It is not the children’s fault or responsibility for the financial situation of their mother raising them. -she did him a big favor by punishing him with reading a book & writing her a book report on it answering her questions.

    He is the perfect example of how welfare is suppose to work. He grew up into a teenager who went to Yale and Med School to finally break away from the cycle of poverty. His kids did not know poverty because of his achievements.

    He could have chosen a life of crime, but he started focusing on school to make his mother proud of him. It was his grades & efforts in high school that EARNed him a scholarship. So what, plenty of Black folks get scholarships, but they didn’t have it to become a world renowned Neurosurgeon making million$.
