Flashback: Maxine Waters and Cory Booker *Explicitly* Called for Violence Against Elected Leaders

-

[The Post Millennial] In 2018, both Rep. Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Sen. Maxine Waters (D-CA) called for violence against elected leaders.

They wanted their constituents to give a wake-up call to those congressmen and Cabinet members who were allied with the Trump administration, and they believed that violence was the way to do it. They said so outright.

And so let’s stay the course.

“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, at a department store, at a gasoline station, let’s stay the course! Let’s make sure we have to show up wherever we have to show up!”

“And if you see anybody from that Cabinet  in a restaurant, at 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 that they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere…”
