It seems the Black Lives Matter and Antifa rioters are now following the orders of Rep. Maxine Waters, who in 2018 shouted at her followers to let Trump supporters know “they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

Ms. Waters was talking about American citizens, whom she dislikes simply because they are not of her political party. Well, I didn’t know she had purchased this country. Of the violent, destructive Los Anegeles riots, Ms. Waters said, “I maintain it was somewhat understandable, if not acceptable.”

I remember a quote attributed to the late Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev during a visit to the United States: “We cannot expect the Americans to jump from capitalism to communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving Americans small doses of socialism, until they suddenly awake to find they have communism.” I think that door is opening with each new “protest” episode that takes place in this country.

During a congressional hearing several years back Waters talked about “taking over, and the government running all of your companies.” Americans do not heed history.
