Rep. Maxine Waters cancels events after 'very serious death threat'

Rep. Maxine Waters, whose call for public protests of Trump administration officials has triggered a debate over civility in politics, said Thursday that she has canceled events in Texas and Alabama this weekend after a “very serious death threat” made against her.

In a statement reported by CNN, the California Democrat said that after President Trump took aim at her Monday on Twitter, “even more individuals are leaving threatening messages and sending hostile mail to my office.”

“There was one very serious death threat made against me on Monday from an individual in Texas which is why my planned speaking engagements in Texas and Alabama were cancelled this weekend,” Waters said in the statement.

A Waters spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for confirmation.

1. Is it coincidental Hump viciously attacked her two days ago?

Clearly he is dying to hear some completely insane right-winger will march out to carry out his filthy attack on that woman.

Hope Maxine (not "Max" as Hump called her, two days ago) will please protect herself. She is needed.

2. No doubt. And I wouldn't be surprised if the Capital Gazette shooter was a Trumpkin as well.

Extremists tend to copycat one another - all the more so when they feel they'll be given impunity.

6. They need to yank Sarah Huckabee's protection and instead, protect an elected member of ...

the US Congress, who has verifiable threats made against her. Either that, yank some of Pruitt's protection detail from him and assign instead, to Ms. Waters, who was basically doing the job her voters wanted her to do.

16. What the hell is it gonna take for us to start STEPPING on these roaches???

A dead kid in a cage?
A dozen?
A sitting Senator?
LOL@ Calls for 'civility' from the most barbaric segment of our society...buncha small-dicked, fragile, insecure motherfuckers who have had a hundred-year SAD that they LOST the civil war and got out-voted on the New Deal.

If Nixon had gone to prison, we fucking wouldn't be here.
Let's NOT let that happen again.

Dems, you're not getting elected to get RE-elected. You're getting elected to PUT SELF-SERVING TRAITORS IN PRISON WHERE THEY BELONG. Do THAT on our behalf, and your reelection is pretty much GUARANTEED. FOR ABOUT HALF A CENTURY.

The BEGINNING of Justice if we take the House is for Hillary Clinton to be elected Speaker...because FUCK their tears.

20. Nope. The House Majority can elect whomever the hell they want.

There's NO rule that says the elected Speaker be a current member of the chamber (this has never happened before, mind you, but it's neither against the Rules OR the Law).

23. intimidation

and we need to know about these death threats so we can go there and find the attacker. This is what it has come down to, courtesy of Don - we will have to aggressively and massively fight back against these terrorist threats. If there is a threat, then show up en masse to intimidate them right back. They rely on fear to silence us. We greatly out number them, and it is time to show it.

24. He poses a threat to everyone

If he can do this and get away with it. He loves to try and intimidate and scare women, especially minorities ones. Anyone who speaks out against him gets on his revenge list , then he gets people to do his dirty work trying to uncover something to use against them with. Then he demands they're corrupt , and criminals, so he can instruct the DOTJ to go after them, claiming he's not involved. All coming from a career corrupt criminal , and con man. She knows exactly what he is. Thank You Maxine.

25. minngal

First of all, I love Maxine Walters. She is a good fighter for 'what is right' for all of us.

I totally believe DJT with his vicious, hateful rhetoric fires all the dingbats up. There are a lot of crazies in our country but until we got a crazy in the WH, they protested silently............no more. Now they are just following DJT's behavior and making threats, calling honorable people names, lying about every single thing and other erratic behavior. DJT just gives the lunatics permission and even he even encourages this behavior.
