During a rally to protest border security policies in Los Angeles on Saturday, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) called for the harassment of those she disagrees with politically.

So much for the party of tolerance.

“Already you have members of your (President Trump’s) cabinet that have been booed out of restaurants. Who have protestors taking up at their house. Who say - ‘No peace, no sleep,’” Waters said.

Waters then told the crowd that God was on “our” side. So I guess, harassment of those you politically

“So let’s stay the course. Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And 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!”

That kind message of tolerance from the Democratic representative was echoed again later Sunday during an interview on MSNBC, where Waters said harassing Trump administration officials would continue.

“They’re absolutely going to harass them until they decide that they’re going to tell the president, ‘No, I can’t hang with you.’”
