California Congresswoman Maxine Waters renewed her call for political violence by urging Black Lives Matter and street thugs to riot, burn, loot, and attack police officers.
Rep. Waters went on the record, stating that unless Derek Chauvin is found “guilty, guilty, guilty,” in the manslaughter trial of George Floyd’s death, rioters should “get more confrontational.” These remarks were reportedly delivered in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, where Black Lives Matter and Antifa thugs brutalized people, robbed, and destroyed buildings as Democrats such as Rep. Waters egged them on.
“We’re looking for a guilty verdict,” Rep. Waters reportedly said, inciting violence. “We’ve gotta stay on the street, and we’ve got to get more active. We’ve got to get more confrontational. We’ve got to make sure that they know that we mean business.”
Clashes with police ensued at the recent Brooklyn Center riots. A convergence of Back Panthers, Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and other loosely-knit organizations refused to peacefully leave the streets after curfews were imposed. Waters appears to be urging crowds to thumb their nose at the law and police officers. Local businesses were targeted, damaged, and looted by what Democrats routinely call “peaceful protestors.”
The California radical has a long history of inciting left-wing zealots to act violently. She was at the center of a storm that had unhinged followers harassing Trump Administration officials and assaulting Trump Supporters.
“I have no sympathy for these people that are in this administration,” Waters said at the time. “I want to tell you, these members of his cabinet who remain and try to defend him, they won’t be able to go to a restaurant, they won’t be able to stop at a gas station, they’re not going to be able to shop at a department store.”
Congressional Republicans called on Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to rein in Waters and call for calm as the Chauvin jury decides the verdict.
“Maxine Waters is inciting violence in Minneapolis — just as she has incited it in the past. If Speaker Pelosi doesn’t act against this dangerous rhetoric, I will bring action this week,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy stated.
Pelosi did not promptly respond to the growing violence stoked by Waters, who was recently seen chanting with “No good cops in a racist system!” and “No justice, no peace!” in Brooklyn Center. Other Republicans recognize that Democrats care nothing for peaceful stability in American communities. That’s why Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Greene is expected to introduce a resolution focused on expelling Waters.
“Rep. Waters is a danger to our society. After traveling across state lines to incite riots, her orders recorded on video last night at the Brooklyn Center directly led to more violence and a drive-by shooting on National Guardsmen in Minnesota early this morning,” Rep. Greene reportedly said. “As a sitting United States Congresswoman, Rep. Maxine Waters threatened a jury demanding a guilty verdict and threatened violence if Chauvin is found not guilty. This is also an abuse of power. Rep. Maxine Waters must be expelled from Congress!”
Democrats and the fake news media covered up the violence, arson, and looting during the initial George Floyd riots. The left-wing media continues to hide facts about riots in cities such as Portland. Americans can expect they will blame police officers should riots escalate if Democrat-led jury intimidation falls short.
