PBS anchor excuses Maxine Waters, other Democrats who have encouraged political violence

Most Democrats respond to accusations of double standards by simply ignoring them. Bolder types, like PBS anchor Yamiche Alcindor, own the hypocrisy.

As former President Donald Trump’s enemies attempt to charge him with “insurrection,” Alcindor excused Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) and other Democrats who have encouraged political violence, Breitbart reported.

PBS anchor defends Democrats

Democrats are seeking to argue this week that Trump incited “insurrection” by him claiming that the 2020 election was rigged, and then allegedly exciting a mob of his supporters to storm the Capitol.

In response to reports that Trump’s lawyers plan to highlight extreme comments from Democrats at the impeachment trial, Alcindor argued that there is no comparison since no violence resulted from those “fiery speeches.”

“But I think the thing that’s going to be so obvious is going to be that there wasn’t a storming of the Capitol after Maxine Waters or Senator Harris — then-Senator Harris had fiery speeches. So I think that’s all the things that we should be watching, how they juxtapose this at the scene of where this happened,” she said.

As a factual matter, Alcindor’s claim is disputable.

As many conservatives have observed, Democrats made no attempt to chasten violent mobs that rioted across the country this summer, and in some cases even seemed to encourage them.

Democratic rhetoric

Trump’s lawyers and allies have pointed to Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) demanding “unrest” in the streets, for example, and a comment from Waters calling to harass Trump staffers in public has been held up as an evergreen, proof-positive case of incitement.

The renewed attention on these comments prompted responses this week from Waters — who echoed Yacindor, saying her comments were benign — and the White House, which refused to weigh in.

Trump is expected to be acquitted when the trial concludes in a matter of days, but that doesn’t mean it will be without dramatics, with Democrats deploying sensational videos of the Capitol riot to drive their argument.

But Trump lawyer Bruce Castor has mentioned video of “cities burning and courthouses being attacked and federal agents being assaulted by rioters,” in a preview of things to come.

Currently, Democrats are engaged in opening arguments, and Trump’s lawyers will have a chance to respond later this week.

  1. PBS should not get my money – sink or swim you leftist rag. Defund PBS or Re-image them to include all viewpoints. Their choice – writing Congress today!

    1. W T G !!!! I totally agree with you. Get CNN, MSNBC and all the others off the air…tell Zuckerberg and Dorsey to take a long ride off a short pier for donating
      anything to the deranged Democrats…this entire thing is absure and our tax dollars go for this? Damn..bring back Trump!

    2. This rigged election needs to be solved. Someone knows what happened. Wouldn’t be weird if the reason AZ is being so stubborn is because the voter machines could be manipulated from this state. We do have dirty elections in AZ. McSally should have fought harder in both elections. AZ loves their guns they wouldn’t have voted for Kelly and Senima(spelling)won because they just happened to find extra voting ballots laying around in a shed. We need an audit!!!! Hobbs is a commie.

  2. It’s to the DUMBOCRATS, advantage to SLANDER PRESIDENT TRUMP, any way possible, these lunatics up in Washington have nothing better to do, those riots that occurred in Washington state and across the MidWest were incited by the DUMBOCRATS, and continued to be fueled and encouraged by them, to include Maxine Waters, Kamal Toe Harris

  4. This is so stupid on democrats . America needs help and all the care about trump that is out of office. The film they showed of trumps speech was doctored. What do you expect from the swamp. I hate that Republicans that voted for this are traders. After all that trump did for America ! Look at what they are doing to America. They are taking our first amendment, second amendment, our choice to worship, but they do whatever they want no matter what rules they make. You have been after him since day one, but you have more in a case for Clinton and Obama, but they are not in jail yet.

  5. PBS is a Commie rag. It has been for a long time.
    It’s only purpose is to wind up the uninformed Democrats against America!

  6. The voting system and paper ballots were rigged. That’s not a theory. That’s a fact. Question Donna Brasile who did the same thing the previous election. Vans of Biden ballots were delivered. It’s impossible to have every single ballot marked the exact same way using what appeared to be the same pen. I’ve no more patience with those in the democRat party.

  7. What do you mean the left can do as they please.That nothing happened after Maxine and the others B.S.. Look what they did to Ran Paul and wife, the restaurants where Maxine told them to get in their faces. They did and more. there are many and the repubs. need to bring that up.

  8. Expect to see more and more Biden goofs with no reporting the event. Trump was chastised if he sneezed. I expect the evil Harris will end up as president. A scary situation. The best man lost. Foreign leaders were happy to see Trump leave because he stood up for our country (example, NATO funding, securing our borders,lowering taxes, encouraging capitalism. I am against free stuff for everyone because that means higher taxes for me.).

  9. Our once revered Country and form of government has been destroyed by a Democratic “witch hunt” and the constant barrage of collusion which was all proven false.

    People like Maxinne Waters, Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Joe Biden and K. Harris are clear examples of brain dead politicians who are grasping at straws to destroy a President that “got things done”, helped the USA and was dedicated to a better USA.

    The politicians that pushed this ugly witch hunt and relentless attack on Trump should “personally” reimburse the USA government for the cost of the Mueller Report, the cost of all the bogus reports and the dollars lost in Congress for their stupidity.

    1. Mr. Isham, your statement says it all. I have nothing to add – you said it all. I am absolutely flabbergasted that there could be so much ignorance in our country.

  10. I agree with all of you above what they’re doing is nothing less and then a crucifixion God pity their souls for their lies in the treason and their hate for this country we had them in there who loved us cared for the people in this country walls with him without a doubt

  11. Amen to all posts! Stop your donation to pbs, they rely on OUR money to remain on the air! Their “ journalists” are political hacks, spouting commie demo B.S.! No real honest journalism there!

  12. Actually the mob did incite violence since they have been running their pothole for five years. It’s amazing President Trump did not use violence on them. It would be self defense in my book. Wonder why the trial does not include the BLM member that said he wanted to kill President Trump? Yes he did, before someone else opens their pothole. Look at the video tape unless that has been deleted by Big Tech, Nancy Pelosi and others. Maybe even the Democrats lawyers. If it doesn’t fit, you must acquit. This doesn’t fit chim, chim!

  13. I agree with All the Statements here. Pelosi has been Obsessed with Taking Down Donald Trump since before he took the Oath of Office. She Continues to do so, Clinton never paid for Her Crimes. Waters has encouraged her Followers to Harm Donald Trump & His Family. Yet she gets re elected and has not been Arrested for her Crimes. Who are the Bringing to watch this Travesty but Hanoi Jane Fonda Who Betrayed Our POWs during the Vietnam War. But she is welcomed by the Biden Administration. There is no forgiveness for her.
