It's a scary time these past few days for Americans, as explosive devices have been sent to the homes and workplaces of many liberal figureheads. One House Rep, Maxine Waters (D-CA), is telling us exactly how she is responding to the threat on her and her colleagues' lives.


Ms. Waters, 80, was very concise and forthright in her response to these threats.


"I ain't scared."



With the mid-term elections coming up, Ms. Waters says she is sure that this is a scare tactic.

"They would like to intimidate us. Of course, we must be wise, we must not be foolish … but we should never stop the struggle and the fight for justice and equality in this country. I don't know whether the bombs are real or not, but we should not crawl under bed, close the doors, not go out, be afraid to go to rallies," Waters told Blavity. "We have to keep doing what we're doing in order to make this country right, that's what I intend to do."




Waters also said President Trump should "should take responsibility for the kind of violence that we are seeing." Trump has, in recent history, praised a politician for assaulting a reporter, and told his followers to "knock the crap" out of any Anti-Trump protestors.

"I think the president of the United States has been dog-whistling to his constituency, making them believe that their problems are caused by those people over there. And I think they are acting out what they believe the president wants them to do and the way he wants them to act," said Waters. "He in his own way does a lot to promote violence."




Explosive devices have been sent to over ten locations. TWO devices were sent to Joe Biden and Maxine Waters each.


"I don't know whether the bombs are real or not, but we should not crawl under the bed, close the doors, not go out, be afraid to go to rallies," she said.

"We have to keep to doing what we're doing in order to make this country right; that's what I intend to do, and as the young people say, 'I ain't scared.'"

Remember, if Maxine Waters ain't scared, you have to get out to the polls and VOTE.
