Maxine Waters Demanded Police Motorcade And Escort Earlier than Calling For Violence At Anti-Police Occasion
California Democratic MP Maxine Waters called in an armed police escort this weekend to protest the police in a suburb of Minneapolis, Townhall reported. During the event, Waters called for a riot if former police officer Derek Chauvin is found guilty of the murder of George Floyd.
The US Capitol Police reportedly asked police to accompany Waters on their trip to Minnesota to anger protesters and urge them to “become more confrontational”.
Waters, who plans to stay in Minnesota pending the jury’s verdict, also encouraged the rioters to “stay on the streets” and “get more active.”
“We have to be more confrontational. We have to make sure they know we mean business, ”said the representative from California.
Just hours after Waters delivered her speech, two members of the Minnesota National Guard were injured in a drive-by shooting. As The Federalist noted, “the biggest corporations made no connection between Waters’ rhetoric and the violence that resulted” when they were willing to do so with former President Donald Trump.
Waters has received backlash in the past for encouraging people to go to Trump supporters and everyone in his administration “in a restaurant, department store, gas station … and tell them they are nowhere welcome.” are”. She defended her recent comments by blaming Republicans for making their rhetoric “fit their message and reason for denouncing and denouncing us.”
“Whenever you see an opportunity to speak up, do it and send a message to all the white supremacists, the KKK, the oath guards, the [Proud] Guys and all that… ”Waters said on Monday. “This is a time for [Republicans] keep telling our voters this [Democrats] are the enemy and they do that over and over again. But that doesn’t stop me from telling the truth to power. I am not intimidated. I am not afraid and do what must be done. “
