    Surge Summary: A number of high-profile Democrats/Leftists are erasing any doubt about their commitment to partisan and radical ideals versus an honest effort to find middle-ground with their ideological rivals.

    by Gary Bauer

    Everyone knows this is a very troubling time for our country.  Many people thought Donald Trump was causing the divisions in America.  He wasn’t.  And it’s clear that things haven’t gotten any better over the last 90 days.

    But the worst thing anyone can do is pour gasoline on the fire, particularly when the unrest is related to charges of racism.  What we need right now is calm.  Sadly, multiple leftists are fanning the flames of division in our country.

    For example, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, the president’s spokesperson, prejudged a disputed police shooting.  Friday afternoon, she insisted that “too often in this country, law enforcement uses unnecessary force, too often resulting in the death of black and brown Americans.”

    There are hundreds of examples from the liberal media.  But CNN’s Chris Cuomo said we won’t get serious about reform until white kids “start getting killed.”  That’s disgusting!

    And for the record, Jen and Chris, more Caucasians are killed by police than minorities.

    But the worst example is Rep. Maxine Waters, a powerful member of Congress.  She traveled 1,500 miles from her California district to tell rioters in Minneapolis that they should “get more confrontational,” as if they needed any encouragement.

    She demanded that Officer Derek Chauvin be found guilty.  And if he isn’t, Waters said people should take to the streets.  Hours after her remarks, two National Guardsmen were injured in a drive-by shooting.  Is that confrontational enough, Congresswoman?

    Waters has a history of making outrageous and provocative statements.  In 2018, she faced an ethics complaint after inciting violence against Trump Administration officials.

    Waters also defended the 1992 Los Angeles riots as “understandable, if not acceptable.”  She referred to the riots as an “insurrection” and a “rebellion.”

    It’s disturbing to say, but some very prominent people seem to want a civil war.  How else can you explain such extreme rhetoric?

    Maxine Waters should apologize or be kicked out of Congress.  Chris Cuomo should apologize or be fired.  The Biden White House should denounce violence.  But I’m not holding my breath.
