Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) has addressed a series of recent death threats she said she has received, telling would-be threateners to “shoot straight” during an immigration rally on Saturday.
“I know that there are those who are talking about censuring me, talking about kicking me out of Congress, talking about shooting me, talking about hanging me,” Waters told the crowd in Los Angeles.
“All I have to say is this, if you shoot me you better shoot straight, there’s nothing like a wounded animal,” she added to cheers.
The article goes on to state the following:
Waters was forced to cancel a pair of events in Alabama and Texas this week after a “very serious death threat.”
She said she has been getting harassed after she called for protesters to confront Trump administration officials in public over its “zero tolerance” immigration policy.
Her remarks about “shooting straight” begin at the 3:45 minute mark of the video below.
“Donald Trump, you think you can get away with everything, but you’ve gone too far,” she yelled, claiming children are being put in cages and jails.
Waters likened the handling of illegal aliens to the days of slavery, when parents and children were separated and sold “on the auction block.”
“If you shoot me, you better shoot straight. Because there’s nothing like a wounded animal.” – @repmaxinewaters at the Los Angeles #keepfamiliestogethermarch talking about right-wing death threats pic.twitter.com/RPdt6ED77d
