I can’t help but see a connection. Following the recent violent rhetoric from Maxine Waters this week, the violent threats to people such as myself, in the public eye, have increased.
Many of you may have heard about the recent call from Maxine Waters to physically confront Trump employees and supporters.
Waters was at a toy drive, of all places, when she 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, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” Waters yelled in a rage.
This isn’t the first time someone has called for violence against Trump, Trump supporters or conservatives. For example Madonna famously said she often thinks of blowing up the White House, but Maxine Waters is not a celebrity, she is a sitting Senator from California, her words naturally carry a legal permissiveness behind them that Madonna’s do not.
The implication to those who would like to violently attack conservatives and Trump supporters is that the Senate has your back, the United States government officials approve of your dark desires.
Your violence is protected.
So, this morning I woke up to this comment on one of my videos, which I immediately reported to YouTube.
Perhaps this comment is one of the random, violent comments I get on a regular basis, but in a political climate where the Left accuses Trump of violence simply because he wants to protect our borders, we must speak up about the rhetoric and violence thrown our way.
We must help our brothers and sisters see that this isn’t just an online rant from two sides of the political spectrum. These people are taking it to the streets and we must be prepared.
