The Minnesota National Guard was recently the target of a drive-by shooting and we are appalled. The shooting took place early Sunday morning in north Minneapolis. We are placing the blame squarely on the shoulders of one person and one person only: Rep. Maxine Waters.
Can you believe that Waters was actually urging the Black Lives Matter protesters to become even more confrontational than they already are?! In addition to urging for more violence, Waters also broke the curfew that has been established to keep the rioters in line.

The far-left extremists have been terrorizing Brooklyn Center for the past few days, causing all sorts of destruction. The authorities put a midnight curfew into place, in hopes of putting a stop to it. Waters arrives on the scene and immediately decides that this is not acceptable.
Now, she is marching with the rioters. According to local news station WCCO, the Minnesota National Guard and some Minneapolis police officers decided that they wanted to be on hand to provide some extra security. They were located near Penn and Broadway avenues when the shots were fired from a passing SUV.
The shooting occurred on or about 4:19 a.m., as a light-colored SUV fired several shots at an @MinnesotaOSN security team providing neighborhood security. No team members were seriously injured.

The shooting took place in the wee hours of the morning, shortly after 4 AM. Two members of the National Guard sustained injuries in the shooting. “The shooting occurred on or about 4:19 a.m., as a light-colored SUV fired several shots at an @MinnesotaOSN security team providing neighborhood security. No team members were seriously injured,” tweeted the Minneapolis National Guard account.
“Two @MNNationalGuard members did sustain minor injuries from the incident. One Guardsman sustained an injury from shattered glass requiring additional care and was taken to a local hospital to receive treatment. The other Guardsman received only superficial injuries,” they continued. These reports are hard to swallow.

Waters has created an environment where people feel comfortable firing shots at police officers and National Guard personnel. How could things have fallen this far? It’s not hard to tell when you have someone like Waters who is willing to encourage violence like this.
“Hours after @RepMaxineWaters came to the #TwinCities and incited violence from #BrooklynCenter, shots were fired at police & National Guard in #NorthMpls around 4 a.m. The suspect got away. White or gold Tahoe/SUV with BM driver. Fled toward Robbinsdale,” the CrimeWatchMpls account shared.
They are merely looking to bring the shooter to justice. According to descriptions, the SUV was being driven by a black male. Is the mainstream media going to bother discussing this at all? Of course they are not. Waters’ exhortations to violence should be covered on a much wider scale than they are but we are not holding our breath.
Waters should be held responsible for any violence that takes place in Minneapolis right now but she won’t be. Imagine how the situations would reverse if a Republican encouraged people to take their streets back, though. No one is willing to let go of the things that Trump did while he was in office.
Now, we are supposed to treat a shooting that is this serious like it is a mere coincidence. Waters essentially asked for it to happen and she’s not getting any heat whatsoever. Minnesota authorities are doing the best that they can to keep things under control but now people are looking to go over their heads. Does Waters have no shame to speak of? This is a real question that needs to be answered.
We are tired of watching two different groups of people get held to two entirely different standards. If it is a problem for government employees to issue passionate cries for more violence, it should be a problem all of the time. Waters needs to be taken to task but Sleepy Joe is passed out at the wheel, like usual. Anyone who genuinely expects him or v Psaki to say the right thing about any of this is only deluding themselves at this point.
