“I’m absolutely still, uh, very, very much stunned that it happened,” Waters stated, referring to the January 6 Capitol breach which the left insists labeling an “insurrection.”
“As I watched, as the world watched as our Capitol was invaded, as an insurrection took place,” she continued to blather. “It was hard for me to believe this was happening in our country, in America. It was a mob. They were destructive. They broke out windows, and they tore down our doors. They entered our offices. They took over the House floor, the Senate floor. I believe that if I had been caught walking from the gallery to my office after it had started if I had encountered them, I sincerely believe they would have killed me. I sincerely believed that if they had gotten to Nancy Pelosi, they would have killed her. That’s how dangerous and frightening this insurrection was.”
There was no insurrection. No one was in danger of being killed by the unarmed protesters, and no one was killed except a female military veteran, shot dead by a Capitol police officer.
She continued inarticulately, “This president [Trump] has not stopped, and we cannot be comfortable that we manage to not allow him to pull this coup d’état that was attempted, where they thought they could disrupt the election and he would stay in power. We cannot be comfortable that we got back into counting those electoral votes. This could happen again, and in so many different ways, the election could truly be undermined, and our democracy could truly be undermined by what is being organized right not all over this country in particular legislative bodies and with secretaries of states and even members of city councils.”
This is an absolutely fact-free, fear-mongering rant, but that’s par for the course for Maxine Waters, whose only tools in her skill set are hateful demagoguery and incitement to violence.
