Congressman Introduces Resolution Calling for Maxine Waters’ Resignation

Maxine Waters resignationA new resolution was introduced in the wake of comments by Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) in which she called for supporters of the Democratic Party to harass Trump administration officials in public.

In the past few weeks, three members of the Trump administration have been heckled and kicked out of restaurants over their political affiliation.

On June 25, Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) introduced a resolution to censure and condemn Waters for her violence-inciting comments.

“Individuals have the right to debate their differences civilly, without fear of retribution,” Biggs said in a statement after introducing the resolution. “Unfortunately, Maxine Waters’ comments condone public violence and encourage actions that jeopardize the safety and security of government officials and the American people.”

Waters, who represents California’s 43rd congressional district, made the heated comments at a rally in Los Angeles on June 23.

She stated: “Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

H.Res. 962 also called for Waters to issue a formal apology to members of the Trump administration and to “immediately resign from office to allow an individual more befitting.”

Waters comments also caught the ire of President Donald Trump, who criticized her on Twitter.

“Congresswoman Maxine Waters, an extraordinarily low IQ person, has become, together with Nancy Pelosi, the Face of the Democrat Party. She has just called for harm to supporters, of which there are many, of the Make America Great Again movement. Be careful what you wish for Max!” Trump wrote on June 25.

Since the president was elected, his staff members, family members, allies, and supporters have all been subjected to similar provocation and badgering. Waters pushed that trend to a new level by openly calling on her supporters to confront Trump’s team in public.

Divided Party

Biggs is not the only one concerned with the current rhetoric.

Some Democrats have distanced themselves from Waters, citing concerns that her comments go too far and could hurt the party’s bottom line in the upcoming midterm election. The incident has sparked an internal debate in the Democratic Party.

On June 25, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi took to Twitter to urge for civility, particularly since Democrats are trying to regain control of the House.

“Trump’s daily lack of civility has provoked responses that are predictable but unacceptable. As we go forward, we must conduct elections in a way that achieves unity from sea to shining sea,” she said.

Former Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod echoed Pelosi’s comments, calling the current rhetoric, “counter-productive.”

“Rousting Cabinet members from restaurants is an empty and, ultimately, counter-productive gesture that won’t change a thing,” Axelrod wrote in a tweet on June 25.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer went further on the Senate floor on June 25, saying that harassment is never the answer.

“No one should call for the harassment of political opponents. That’s not right. That’s not American,” he said.

I wish the article would simply tell us what we can do to help get her out of office. What is a resolution for? Can we make it happen? Does it do anything at all, or just put words down for history’s sake? Tell us what we can to do help, please, when you make something known. Otherwise the knowledge is good for nothing and just serves to frustrate us more!

Whereas Representative Waters’ comments are in direct conflict with the reputation of the United States as a Nation where individuals have a right to debate their differences civilly, without fear of physical retribution: Now, therefore, be it
That—
(1)the House of Representatives censures and condemns Maxine Waters for conduct that condones public violence and incites public discord, and is not befitting an elected Member of the House of Representatives; and
(2)it is the sense of the House of Representatives that Maxine Waters, Representative of California’s 43d Congressional District, should—
(A)issue a formal apology to the members of the Trump administration and all public officials for endangering their lives and sowing seeds of discord;
(B)issue a public statement that physical violence and harassment is not an appropriate reaction for members of the public to express disagreement with their elected officials; and
(C)immediately resign from office to allow an individual more befitting of the respect of the people of the United States to represent California’s 43d Congressional District.

Yes I agree Maxine and Nancy plus Diane should all be kick out politics go home and be good grandmothers, if it is possible. They are all crazy rich people that has never worked a day in their life. And they are all group up as spoiled BRATS! We have a serious with the Demo’s and I hope we can stop them before they destroy our country. If we can stop George Soros’s money and Obama distributing it, we have a chance, Just don’t by Progressive Ins. He owns it. Plus they have all committed crimes against the constution and the people of the United States of America and should be convicted and put away.

Sad. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but Maxine Waters uses “Hate” in her words and inviting those with weak minds to share in her “Hate” and telling them to act out in an uncivil ways. Truly intelligent people would not act out in such a way just because Maxine Waters said to. Scary to know there are so many weak-minds out there.

So sad but the people that are there to protect us are now wishing hard and even death to their own country men. I am afraid that it will take a child or a child of the Republican senior or party rep to get hurt or possible worse to get Congress or House to put a stop to this craziness.
It does not made sense to waite till it is to late to save someone or group from harm

I truly believe that Maxine and Hillary and Pelosi and Samatha Bee all need to be [email protected] Just like they did to Rosanne. They all made bad comment against the president. I have never seen such poor treatment to a President in all my years voting. Which is long! If you don’t like the President u wait until the next voting and vote him out. But you know you can’t because he has so far not done anything wrong, except the name calling he does, that really is childish thing to do for a President. You might do it with your friends but not on a twitter accounts or any kind of social media. Otherwise back to the real point fire them and don’t let the door hit them where the sun doesn’t shine!

Maxine Waters has shown her true character as a racist, ill-fitting, big mouth blow hard revolting hypocrite. Her low life intelligence and credence unworthiness is a disgrace to the Democrat party. It’s obvious this troublemaker is wanting her 15 minutes of fame.

Why are the liberals getting away with this? Call them out for who and what they are and be rid of them. I’m tired of all this crap!

Maxine Waters is definitely not a”Real” American, about as poplar as a wet dog that just wants to be petted. She should resign as soon as possible because she is dividing our great country day to day.

notice how axel-clod and others didn’t say what she did was wrong, just that it would be “counter-productive”. These commie skunks don’t even have the decency to call deplorable conduct what it is. How did all these commies get here and how do get rid of them? A giant can of commie-be-gone?

The left think they’re untouchable. They can do or say anything, but, If anything is said against THEM, it’s because YOU are a racist/sexist/homophobe/whatever. They get away with it, because for some reason, conservatives are either unable or unwilling to put an end to it. It reminds me of parents today that let their children control the household. Very disturbing.

Maxine Waters is a certifiable moron. But what c an one expect from someone so stupid and ignorant that she thinks low tide at Santa Monica Beach is an impeachable offense. That woman spouts off as though she has the IQ of a brain-dead gnat.

I hope it works. An improvement would be her corruption exposed. This carpetbagger has made herself rich on the backs of her constituents that she is supposed to represent. She has fed on the carcass of her district and she needs to be held accountable. The House must force her to resign and AG Sessions should look long and hard at her corruption.

Maxine waters should resign, or voted out. what an idiot and a disgrace. she is just what we do not need at this time..

I agree that this censure won’t get any traction, but it must be attempted regardless. If we remain silent it will appear as if no one cares, or worse, agrees with her.
