Cold Fury

Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Cry, baby, cry

A good start, I guess.

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.”

Umm…the brain-dead blot on the idea of evolutionary advancement DOES know these guys are mostly cops and soldiers, right?

“This is the launch of an ongoing protest that may go on for several weeks. Other patriotic groups are welcome to join us,” the group’s statement said. “This is both a protest against Maxine Waters’ incitement of terrorism, and a stand for ICE and the Border Patrol, as they enforce the perfectly constitutional immigration and naturalization laws of this nation.”

Waters, 79, ignited controversy last month when she called on her supporters to publicly confront and harass members of the Trump administration in response to the zero-tolerance immigration policy that led to the separation of families at the border.

Well, that sounds mild enough, right? Maybe we ought to go back and review what she actually said, just to clarify matters:

She explained, “Already you have members of your cabinet that are being booed out of restaurants. We have protesters taking up at their house who are saying, ‘No peace, no sleep. No peace, no sleep.’”

She concluded with a call to action, encouraging the crowd to go out and repeat what had been done to White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. She said, “If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. Tell them they’re not welcome any more, anywhere!

Now a little compare and contrast:

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.

Oh, it’s a lot more than just that; as I said at the time, it’s incitement to riot at the very least.

You want to defeat arrogant, fascist Lefty scum, be they the violent Antifa IRA-analog or the Democrat-Socialist Party’s Sinn Fein? This is how you do it: you use their own rules against them, up to the very fucking limit and beyond. You cram a triple helping of their own bullshit right down their throats, until they’re choking, gagging, and begging you to stop.

Like it or not, that’s how it’s done. That’s the Chicago Way.




The Oathkeepers’ move is a step in the right direction, if only a mild, tentative one. There needs to be lots more, until the message is received and the Left’s intolerable behavior modified.

Update! Our esteemed bud Aesop begs to differ, the critical part of which is this:

What is going to happen outside her office is waste-of-time street theater on hostile territory, in the wrong neighborhood, where the LAPD will studiously look the other way if the protesters are attacked, while arresting them if they so much as drop a gum wrapper on the sidewalk.

It is, in short, a stupid, pointless, and criminally negligent waste of time.

There are better and saucier ways to make a point, all within the law, and none of them so Casper Milquetoast as waddling around the offices Mad Maxine never visits, to stage a rally the MSM will never report on, and do nothing but annoy the local folks and provide a juicy target for hoodrats and her minions to exploit.

Sticking your head in the lion’s mouth may look badass, right up until the lion pride goes all Siegfried’s Tiger on you.

We’ve tried even less than that in the past, to no affect whatsoever, but if this is the best they could come up with after two weeks’ careful deliberation since her public meltdown, they need to go sit down, and have that other think they’ve still got coming.

This is the definition of lose-lose warfare, conceived of by people who haven’t the first effing clue what they’re about, since ever, as far as I can tell.

He’s right about all that, I must admit; if I remember right, Oathkeepers has been taken to task by some for exactly this kind of kabuki theater before. In my own defense, though, I didn’t mean to imply that their action was anything at all akin to “the Chicago way” as enunciated in the video clip. In fact, I was trying to make clear that the Oathkeepers’ protest was at most a modest first step, one which will have to be expanded upon greatly if we’re ever to get these fascist assclowns out of our affairs for good. Either way, Aesop has more points to make at his joint, all of them right on the beam.

  1. Um, actually, the Chicago way is exactly what this is not.
    It’s polite civil protest, which is everything the Leftards quite pointedly are not up to.

    So if we’re going to be clear, the Chicago Way would be doing exactly what full-throated Chavista Mad Maxine accused the Oaf-keepers of doing: going to protest her at her offices, while heavily armed.

    Like Mad Maxine’s communist heroes, the Black Panthers, used to do, which is why laws banning open firearms carry were passed in most of populated CA in the 1960s.

    Her thugistas have already harassed people at home and at dinner.
    The Chicago Way would be follow her people home, to throw rocks through their living room and bedroom windows, and at any establishment they patronize.

    They’ve shot up a softball game full of Republican congressmen.
    The Chicago Way would be to kill some Democrat congressmen.

    Nota bene, I’m not advocating any of that, especially since they’re all illegal, and advocating that last would be a violation of federal law, and trigger a federal investigation, (except, as we’ve seen, when senile communists representing the Dindus of Souf Central do it on national press conferences).

    But I just want us to be clear on terms, and what the Chicago Way is, and isn’t.
    Connery was pretty clear on the rules in that clip.

    This idea is almost as well-planned and likely to succeed as the Children’s Crusade was, circa
    1212 A.D.

    If they cancel now, they’re smart but already look stupid for announcing it in the first place.
    if they go, they’re prize-winning idiots, and when you play stupid games, you’re liable to win stupid prizes.

    This is the definition of lose-lose warfare, conceived of by people who haven’t the first effing clue what they’re about, since ever, as far as I can tell.

    Stay well away, and wait for the YouTube videos of them getting their @$$#$ handed to them at worst, or being totally ignored and ineffectual, at best.

    Jeez, didn’t these not-so-smart-bombs pay attention to Malheur, or Charlottesville?!?
    What does it take to beat the stupid out of some folks?
    Wait and see.

    1. I’d like to hear some suggestions for more effective and, hopefully, legal, action instead of this, Aesop. (This isn’t any kind of challenge/attack; I’d love to hear useful suggestions.)
