Maxine Waters is dangerously stirring up racial violence in America.
She’s openly encouraging an illegal insurrection.
A top Republican announced the career-ending consequence Maxine Waters is facing.
In Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, the Minnesota National Guard was deployed last week as rioters built barricades in the streets and looters broke into stores and attacked the police. The city is also on edge awaiting a verdict in the Derek Chauvin case.
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) travelled to Brooklyn Center and on Saturday night told the crowd that they need to be “more confrontational.”
“We’re looking for a guilty verdict. We’re looking for a guilty verdict. And we’re looking to see if all of this [inaudible] that took place and has been taking place after they saw what happened to George Floyd,” Waters said. “If nothing does not happen, then we know, that we’ve got to not only stay in the street, but we’ve got to fight for justice, but I am very hopeful, and I hope that we’re going to get a verdict that will say guilty, guilty, guilty. And if we don’t, we cannot go away.”
Waters was asked what should happen if Chauvin is not convicted, and Waters replied that they must “stay on the street.”
“And we’ve got to get more active. [We’ve] got to get more confrontational,” she said. “[We’ve] got to make sure that they know we mean business.”
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy responded saying that if House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wouldn’t take action, then he would.
“Maxine Waters is inciting violence in Minneapolis — just as she has incited it in the past,” McCarthy said in a statement. “If Speaker Pelosi doesn’t act against this dangerous rhetoric, I will bring action this week.”
Pelosi doesn’t think there was anything wrong with Waters’ remarks.
“Pelosi says she doesn’t think Waters should apologize for her remarks about confrontation after the Chauvin verdict,” Fox News reported. “Pelosi also said she didn’t think Waters’ [sic] comments would incite violence.”
The day after Waters made her comments, members of the Minnesota National Guard were injured in a drive-by shooting that occurred in Minneapolis.
This is a violent and volatile situation that is hurting innocent people, and calling for people to “get more confrontational” isn’t making the situation better.
“Telling rioters who have burned buildings, looted stores, and assaulted journalists to get ‘more confrontational’ is incredibly irresponsible. Every House Democrat should condemn Maxine Waters’ call for violence,” National Republican Congressional Committee spokesman Mike Berg told Fox News.
The New York Post Editorial Board said that Waters was “trying to create a civil war” and urged that Pelosi (D-CA) “should strip her of her committee assignments and move for a vote to remove Waters from office.”
