Apr 18 - Republicans blast Rep. Maxine Waters over protest comments
 

 
A chorus of Republicans blasted Rep. Maxine Waters Sunday for telling angry protesters to “stay in the streets” and “get more confrontational” during the seven-straight night of unrest in Minnesota — saying the California Democrat’s fiery comments could incite violence in a state already on edge.

Waters stood alongside demonstrators in Brooklyn Center early Sunday morning –breaking a curfew set by police — to encourage them to make their voices heard following the fatal police shooting of Daunte Wright and ahead of as closing arguments in the trial of former police officer Derek Chauvin for the death of George Floyd.

“We’ve got to stay in the streets, and we’ve got to demand justice,” she urged the crowd, who earlier had been chanting: “No good cops in a racist system!” “F–K your curfew!” and “No justice, no peace!”

“We’re looking for a guilty verdict” in the Chauvin case, Waters said. “And if we don’t, we cannot go away, we’ve got to get more confrontational.”

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said Waters’ remarks are a reflection of the Democratic Party’s overall agenda.

“Democrats actively encouraging riots & violence. They want to tear us apart. ‘We gotta stay on the street,’ Waters was recorded saying, adding that protesters needed ‘to get more confrontational’ & they should ignore the curfew in place,” Cruz said on Twitter.

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) questioned why Waters traveled from California to Minnesota.

“Why is Maxine Waters traveling to a different state trying to incite a riot? What good can come from this?” she asked in a Twitter post.

Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) slammed Waters — who in 2018 encouraged her supporters to harass members of then-President Donald Trump’s Cabinet — arguing that she is just reacting to the Democratic base.

“The Radical Left don’t care if your towns are burning, if there’s violence in your streets, or if the police are too defunded to defend their communities,” Biggs said on Twitter. “As long as the Left appeases their anti-America base, their job is done.”

“ During an appearance Sunday on MSNBC, Waters, 82, said she went to Minnesota “kind of as Aunty Maxine” to show support for the protesters and to let them know “they can count on me to be with them at this terrible time in all of our lives.”

“They see their peers being k*lled. Minneapolis is a great example of what’s wrong with the criminal justice system, what’s wrong with policing. And so those of us who hold significant positions must stand up,” she said.

“We must support them. We must speak out. We must call for justice,” she continued.

Wright, 20, was fatally shot during a traffic stop April 11 by former Brooklyn Center Officer Kim Potter, who claims she mistook her service pistol for a Taser.

Potter resigned and has been charged with manslaughter.

I thought we already knew that the difference between a "riot" and a "peaceful protest" depends on the (perceived) politics (and other qualities) of the group doing it.

The streets would be clear if law enforcement treated everyone fairly & did not stop & harass a segment of the population for money or getting citizens tied up in the courts

Maxine Waters is an idiot and it is a shame someone so dumb represents a large segment of our society.

Slap away.

The National Guard has occupied the area. Operation Safety Net includes a*saulting, harassing and cataloging journalists on police officers cell phones.

They encourage the narrative its been violent, there's been a few break ins... the same areas they usually are to be honest.

Instead of asking people to stay in the streets why doesnt she use her position to actually try do something about the issuesthat caused the protests in the first place. That's why she was voted there in the first place. I think she owes the protesters an explanation in what she is doing to stop police brutality

she doesn't decide when bills go to vote thats Pelosi

and maxine is a California congresswoman



I don't believe democrats have enough votes or desire to pass a police reform bill

and they blocked the republican bill
