We have already discussed the menacing commentary that was provided by Maxine Waters about the rioting in Minnesota. In case you did not have a chance to see this, Waters essentially encouraged people to shoot at the National Guard and the police officers on the scene. It did not take long before someone decided to take her up on this offer.
Now, the entire country is waiting on pins and needles to see what happens next. The Derek Chauvin verdict will be coming down this week. The White House is preparing for the fallout of the verdict and various cities around the country are also preparing for the absolute worst. Why would Waters inflame tensions during a time like this?
The city of Minneapolis is so worried about what might take place, the children have even been sent home for the week. Distance learning is all they will have access to until after this horrific crisis has blown over. Again, our elected officials are the ones who have decided to pour gasoline on this growing fire.
Everyone is well aware of how tense things will be if an acquittal is issued. This is the context that is being ignored as the liberals whoop it up and cheer Maxine Waters on. In her exact words, “we’ve got to make sure that they know that we mean business.” It’s not like there are all sorts of interpretations that can be taken from this.
Rep. Maxine Waters calls for rioters to "stay in the street" and "fight for justice" against police unless Chauvin is declared guilty for murder, not just manslaughter.

We know that she meant the obvious and we are tired of people pretending that she didn’t. Ian Miles Cheong shared the full context of her quote on Twitter: “Rep. Maxine Waters calls for rioters to “stay in the street” and “fight for justice” against police unless Chauvin is declared guilty for murder, not just manslaughter. “We got to get more confrontational. We got to make sure they know we mean business.”
This is not the first time that she has spoken like this. Trump supporters probably remember this insane quote that she offered up back in 2018: “[I]f you see anybody from [the Trump] Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”
Pelosi tells @AnnieGrayerCNN that Waters should NOT apologize for saying protestors should “get more confrontational” if Chauvin is acquitted. “No she doesn’t,” she said when asked if Waters should apologize. “Absolutely not,” she said when asked if her comments incited violence

“Maxine talked about confrontation in the manner of the Civil Rights movement. I myself think we should take our lead from the George Floyd family. They’ve handled this with great dignity and no ambiguity or lack of misinterpretation by the other side,” Pelosi said

“The people are going to turn on them. They’re going to protest. They’re going to absolutely harass them until they decide that they’re going to tell the President, ‘No, I can’t hang with you,” she continued. This is how she talks at all times. She makes no bones about the fact that she is itching for more confrontations.
Waters isn’t the one that will be responsible for them but she wants the liberals to carry out her plans all the same. To make matters even worse, Pelosi is now encouraging the violence as well. She’s seen how well the Waters act plays with the liberals and now she wants to get her own piece of that pie.
Pelosi said that she does not believe Waters should have to apologize for her commentary and offered up her own form of support. “Maxine talked about confrontation in the manner of the Civil Rights movement. I myself think we should take our lead from the George Floyd family. They’ve handled this with great dignity and no ambiguity or lack of misinterpretation by the other side,” she said. She knows right from wrong but chooses not to do the right thing,
Meanwhile, Waters offered up her own non-apology. “I talk about confronting the justice system, confronting the policing that’s going on, I’m talking about speaking up. I’m talking about legislation. I’m talking about elected officials doing what needs to be done to control their budgets and to pass legislation,” she said. Sure, Maxine. We bet that’s what you meant. Do you also have oceanfront property in Idaho that you would like to sell us?
