Maxine Waters supporters burn American flag outside California rep's office

Supporters of Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters reportedly burned and stomped on an American flag they snatched off a pickup truck Thursday, while chanting "Black power" outside her California office.

The demonstrators showed up with the intent of countering a planned protest from a far-right group.

That group, the Oath Keepers, had said they would rally against the congresswoman they call a "protest terrorist inciter" early Thursday afternoon, prompting counterprotesters to rally in support of Waters. But the Oath Keepers did not arrive, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Still, a few dozen pro-Waters counterprotesters, including union workers, church leaders, South Los Angeles residents and members of activist groups, gathered outside the office around midday.

Some demonstrators chanted, “Black power,” while other held signs that read, “Resist!”

Every Republican candidate in every single congressional district should be running this video in a campaign ad 24/7 from now until election day. Force every democrat candidate to either disavow it and face the wrath of the loony left or embrace it and appear anti-American.

That Alt-Right group didn’t even need to show up.
MadMaxine’s Mob did all the work on their own. They have made themselves look like violent, ridiculous drones, chanting other people’s slogans. Dozens of people, and barely an independently functioning brain among them.
Some may wonder if Trump’s people pay Maxine’s people to ‘keep Dope alive’.

Idiots. The Democrats will reap what they sow. How many more white Democrats in the Rust Belt, the south and elsewhere seeing this footage will abandon the party now?

A few people cheered and someone yelled, "This is not the American flag, this is their flag." I take it that was the ebonics to English translation as, I'm guessing from looking at the crowd, that the actual quote was more like:

"Dis ain' d'merican fla, dis be der fla"

Now we know why Michael Cohen is getting so much attention today in the MSM! They can avoid talking about this disgraceful act and they don’t have to cover Lisa Page singing like a canary to Congress!
