Speaking in Minnesota at a rally of BLM protesters on Saturday night, California Congresswoman Maxine Waters said, “we’ve 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!”
By Sunday morning members of the Minnesota National Guard were fired on in a drive-by shooting, injuring two.
Nearly 30 years ago, Waters engaged in the same type of incitement during riots and racial tension following the Rodney King verdict in 1992.
Waters led the chant, “No justice, no peace” during the L.A. riots and her words carried a heavy toll. Sixty-three people were killed making it the fifth deadliest protest in American history.
Republicans have already condemned Waters with Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy saying, “Maxine Water is inciting violence in Minneapolis – just as she has incited it in the past.” McCarthy called on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to take action against Waters.
Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene stated she plans to introduce articles to expel Waters for inciting violence.
Maxine Waters defended her presence in Minneapolis saying, “I wanted to be there, kind of, as Auntie Maxine.”
We’ll take a look and see if taxpayers funded Water’s trip to Minneapolis or if she came out of pocket to stir the pot on the streets.
