Remember when Maxine Waters was saying that activists should haunt the steps of every person associated with the Trump administration and let them know they were “not welcome” in polite society? Well, the shoe is on the other foot now and the congresswoman isn’t very pleased. Oath Keepers has announced that they will be protesting Waters at her Los Angeles congressional office and she’s issuing a warning to her supporters to stay away from the dangerous “gun nuts” who will probably start a war or something.

Rep. Maxine Waters warned supporters on Wednesday of potential “armed protests” against her after an extremist group called for ongoing demonstrations outside her office in Los Angeles.
In a lengthy statement issued late Wednesday, Waters, D-Calif., said she’d been notified about forthcoming protests by the Oath Keepers, which she described as “an anti-government militia” that’s staged armed protests in cities across the country.
She warned her supporters against being “baited” into counter-demonstrations or confrontations with the organization, which she said has a track record of “violent and provocative behavior.”
Not so fun when you’re the one being “hounded” now, is it? But it’s also worth noting that there’s a key difference between what the Oath Keepers are planning and the liberal tactics Maxine Waters has publicly endorsed. The Oath Keepers want to protest outside of the congresswoman’s office. That’s her official place of business where she’s supposedly engaged in her job. Provided they keep to the sidewalks, don’t block traffic or prevent constituent access to the office, it’s nothing more than a typical political protest.
Conversely, Waters specifically endorsed tracking and chasing down members of the Trump administration when they went out for a meal, to go shopping, at their homes and in every other moment of private time they have outside of their government jobs. That’s not a political protest. It’s harassment.
Maxine Waters is the best argument yet against immortality.
