As usual, Maxine Waters is making things worse. The Democrat Congresswoman flew to Brooklyn Center, MN, to encourage violence in the police shooting of Daunte Wright.
Reporters asked “Auntie Maxine,” as she calls herself, what protestors should do if Derek Chauvin is acquitted in the death of George Floyd. She replied, “We got to 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.”
To interpret this as anything but encouraging violence is naive, especially for those who condemned Trump’s “stop the steal” rally prior to the storming of the Capitol. But Nancy Pelosi did just that.
“Maxine talked about confrontation in the manner of the civil rights movement,” Pelosi said. “No, I don’t think she should apologize.” In response, Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is introducing a censure resolution.
Like Pelosi, the Biden White House refuses to condemn Waters’s inflammatory rhetoric. When asked about her remarks, Jen Psaki carefully read a pre-approved script that never mentioned the California congresswoman.
The judge in the Chauvin trial had harsh words for House Democrats and said that Waters’s statement gives a pretext for any appeal by the prosecution.
Let’s be clear: Maxine Waters is encouraging riots, looting, arson, assault, and murder. The Democratic Party approves of her message, as does much of the mainstream media. After months of blaming Trump’s rhetoric for the January 6 “insurrection,” they refuse to condemn the far worse rhetoric spewed by the hateful and noxious Rep. Waters.
Impeach. Remove. Bar her from office.
Whatever the outcome of the Chauvin trial, let’s pray that cooler heads prevail.
Yeah, that ought to help, Al.Published in
