On Thursday Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters’ supporters burned and stomped on an American flag. They snatched the flag off a pickup truck and chanting “Black power” outside her California office.
The demonstrators showed up with the apparent intent of countering a planned protest from a far-right group.
Early Thursday afternoon news came from the ‘Oath Keepers’, which are the group that had said they would rally against the congresswoman who they call a “protest terrorist inciter.” The news that the ‘Oath Keepers’ would protest Waters prompted counter-protesters to rally in support of Waters. The Oath Keepers did not arrive.
A few dozen pro-Waters counter-protesters gathered outside Waters’ California office around midday.
The counter-protesters included union workers, church leaders, South Los Angeles residents and various members of activist groups, gathered outside the office.
Some demonstrators chanted, “Black power,” while other held signs that read, “Resist!”
People placed their fists over a burned U.S. flag as they chanted slogans outside the Los Angeles office of U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters.
During the protest, a vehicle with an American flag on the back, approached and was stopped by the crowd.
Some of the protesters opened the car doors while others grabbed the flag as the vehicle drove off.
The American flag was then stepped on and set on fire as someone made the flames stronger. People cheered and someone yelled, “This is not the American flag, this is their flag.”
Who’s flag is it? It was an American flag.
No one wound up injured and the police didn’t make any arrests.
It remained a mystery if the car that drove by was connected to the ‘Oath Keepers’.
Waters still issued a statement criticizing the ‘Oath Keepers’.
Waters wrote, “The Oath Keepers would like nothing more than to inflame racial tensions and create an explosive conflict in our community.”
I guess the ‘Oath Keepers’ were to blame, according to Waters, whether they were there or not. I wonder how many people agree with that scenario.
The hate speech that Waters keeps screaming to the people has her putting blame on groups who did nothing while her ignorant supporters burned the flag of the nation that they live in.
Who’s looking stupid now? Okay, Waters always appeared out of her mind to me. I guess this is just frosting on the cake.
Democrats have a leader and she’s not a nice face to look at.
