Republicans and conservatives aren’t calling Rep. Maxine Wassers (D.Calif.), “Mad Maxine” without a reason.
Waters has made some outrageous and absurd statements during her decades of service in Congress. She claimed that some looting took place because mothers needed milk and shoes for their children.
“One lady said her children didn’t have any shoes. She just saw those shoes there, a chance for all of her children to have new shoes. Godd**n it! It was such a tear-jerker. I might have gone in and taken them for her myself,” Waters told the L.A. Times at the time.
Waters famously said, “I must march because my mom could not have an abortion.” During a pro-abortion march that took place in 2004.
Mad Maxine has not seen much change over the years. She has actually gotten worse as demonstrated by Saturday’s appearance on MSNBC’s “Ayman reports” program. There, she said to host Ayman Mohyeldin that some Republican House members are “domestic terrors”.
Waters made these remarks to Mohyeldin in answer to a question about police reform after the death of Memphis resident Tyre Nicks. This was three days after Nichols was beaten by five Memphis police officers.
“It’s true that politicians try to be optimistic, but with the leadership, we have in the House, what is the best way forward for Congress to reform the police force after this tragic shooting? He asked, “Give it to us straight.”
Her response was:
“It’s Marjorie Taylor Greene Republican caucus. McCarthy spoke the truth. He told her he loves her and would do anything to protect her. She’s saying so many things and words that she feels like she owns him. They are not my expectations.
We will do our best to make sure that we accomplish everything possible. However, I believe that most Americans can see the truth. These right-wing conservatives are domestic terrorists and we have the House of Representatives. These people are extremists and I don’t believe that this will happen until the people in this country decide not to want it. They won’t elect people who behave the same way as they do.

Rep. Lauren Boebert (Republican from Colorado), who was presumably one of the so-called “domestic terrors” Waters was referring to, responded appropriately on Twitter by dropping some inconvenient facts on Mad Maxine.
“Maxine Waters claims that there are House Republicans who are domestic terrorists. Boebert tweeted, “It’s interesting because I don’t recall anyone calling for more violence in the House than Maxine Waters.”
Boebert’s response was a perfect example of the Ben Shapiro quote, “Facts don’t care what your feelings are.” Waters was the Congresswoman that told far-left agitators during Trump’s years to confront Trump cabinet members and say they were not welcome anywhere.
Let’s ensure we show up where we need to be. You can see anyone from this Cabinet at a restaurant or in a departmental store. You push them back. You tell them that they are not welcome anywhere.
Later in the day, Waters made a second appearance on MSNBC to expand on her comments. She stated that she had “no sympathy” for Trump’s administration members.
“The people will turn against them. They will protest. They will harass them until they say, “No, I cannot hang with you.”

In the 2021 trial for Derek Chauvin, a former Minneapolis police officer, she warned an Antifa/BLM-led mob that they would “get more aggressive” if a murder conviction wasn’t made.
“We are looking for a guilty verdict. We’re also looking to find out if all the talk that took part and continues to take place since George Floyd’s death. “If nothing happens, then we will know that we can not only stay on the streets, but we also have to fight for justice,” she said.
Waters responded that protesters should not stop if there was no guilty verdict.
“We have to keep our feet on the streets. We have to be more proactive, and more confrontational. She said, “We have to ensure that they understand that we mean business.”
The same night, another person was “more confrontational”, firing shots at the Minnesota National Guard.
Maxine Waters called House Republicans domestic terrorists. But it was Maxine Waters who told a mob of ANTIFA rioters to: “get more confrontational.” All Democrats in Congress do is lie to the American people.

Mad Maxine, this is a good idea. Or, as you once said to a group of homeless people in your area, “Go home!”
