Tensions were high when a constitutionalist group announced plans to protest outside of Rep. Maxine Waters’ Los Angeles office.
The group planned to protest Maxine Waters’ “incitement of violence” when she called on her supporters to intimidate and harass Trump officials.
But nobody anticipated what would happen next when a large group of Rep. Waters supporters showed up as counter-protesters.
Armed with baseball bats and metal pipes, Maxine Waters supporters showed up in force preparing to violently confront Oath Keepers, the group who intended to protest outside of Rep. Waters’ office.
The local media laughably said, “some carried protection, just in case.”
While the local media and Associate Press characterized Oath Keepers as a “no show,” the group claimed on their website the LAPD advised them to call it off.
LAPD informed our leadership that there were already 50 Maxine Waters supporters in front of her office armed with steel pipes and baseball bats. And LAPD also stated there were three busloads full of other Maxine Waters supporters staged nearby, waiting for us to arrive before they deployed. LAPD advised our on the ground leadership that LAPD could not guarantee the safety of any protesters, and strongly advised that the protest not be held because of the danger. LAPD added that if a riot occurred, and we were attacked, the LAPD officers would withdraw and we would be on our own.
Given the high likelihood of lethal force violence (steel pipes and baseball bats to the head are clearly lethal force), and out of concern for the safety of other peaceful protesters such as the MAGA Girls, our advance team leader, Johnny Itliong, made the decision to cancel the protest.
Which only proves our point.
You can’t even hold a peaceful protest in front of Maxine Waters’ office, protesting her incitement of her supporters to violence, without facing the violence of her supporters, to the point of lethal force.
But showing up with pipes and bats wasn’t the only thing the “counter-protesters” did.
At one point, the they grabbed an American flag from the back of a passing pick-up truck that was stopped by the crowd.
Reports indicate some protestors had actually opened the doors to the pickup before it sped off.
The crowd then proceeded to step on and burn the flag, while someone in the crowed yelled, “This is not the American flag, this is their flag.”
This is just the latest example of what’s come from Maxine Waters’ call for harassment and intimidation of Trump officials.
We’ll keep you posted on any new stories of these liberal extremists.
