Maxine Waters panned for issuing calls for confrontation if Derek Chauvin isn’t convicted

It’s not a secret that Minneapolis, Minnesota is already a flashpoint for potential violence and destruction caused by riots and looting, especially after the officer-involved killing of 20-year-old Daunte Wright — not to mention the upcoming conclusion of the Derek Chauvin murder trial.

So it’s not a surprise that Republicans and many Americans are angry with recent comments from Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), who according to Fox News, made recent comments to her followers that they should “get more confrontational” if Chauvin isn’t convicted of murder when the jury returns a verdict, which is expected to happen in the coming week. 

Her inflammatory comments, which were largely ignored by most of the mainstream media, come on the heels of nearly a week’s worth of new protests and riots in the wake of Wright’s death in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota.

What did she say?

Waters, known for her inflammatory, anti-Trump comments in the past, was asked by reporters about her thoughts on the Chauvin trial, which was being held just a few minutes away from where Wright was killed as a result of a confrontation with police during a traffic stop.

“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,” Waters replied.

The 82-year-old California lawmaker made clear that she believes Chauvin should be convicted of murder but urged action in the streets if the verdict doesn’t result in her desired outcome. “We cannot go away,” Waters said, if Chauvin isn’t convicted.

Closing arguments for the prosecution and the defense in the Chauvin trial are scheduled to begin and wrap up on Monday. As in any case, a jury could return a fast verdict or it could be drawn out for days or possibly weeks.

Businesses in and around Minneapolis, as well as those responsible for various government buildings, have taken extra precautions over the past two weeks to secure their properties in order to brace for potential widespread violence in the streets following the announcement of the verdict.

Republican backlash

A number of Republicans were quick to point out Waters’ call for extended riots and destruction in a city that desperately needs a break from such tragedies, including Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO).

“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,” wrote Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) in a Sunday tweet.

Only time will tell if riots are once again sparked in Minneapolis, but if it happens and things get really bad, as many predict, Waters should be held accountable for incitement.

  1. It is people like Maxine Waters a hater of the American people and especially the cops and white people. She is an agitator for the BLM and Antifa to continue the riots because of the lies propagated by the media. She doesn’t care about truth she only feels hate. She is one very privileged Black Woman and she doesn’t care about her people, she lives in a mansion, has money, servants and also a very big ugly mouth. She does nothing for her people.

    1. Maxine is clearly the definition of the term given to filthy & evil people by English colonials in N African & Middle East countries. That is the origin of the ‘N’ word and aptly suites her by definition. As my great grandma would say, a pig wearing lipstick is still a pig wearing lipstick. Nor can you make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear.
      I still think the alien predator Arnold fought is Maxine’s twin brother.

    2. Let’s face the facts……they are going to riot regardless of the outcome !!! There is no pleasing these folks. They want every opportunity to riot, burn, destroy, steal, etc. How stupid is it to burn your own businesses, neighborhoods. The areas where riots have occured will never be restored. On a business trip I had to take a detour through the Watts area of L.A. 50 years later there are still burned out buildings that haven’t been razed. Their biggest problem is themselves.

  2. THIS WOMAN HAS SO MUCH HATRED FOR AMERICA AND ITS PEOPLE SHE NEEDS TO MOVE OUT OF THE COUNTRY SHE IS PURE EVIL

  4. No way is this pathetic savage going to be charged with inciting a riot since SHE IS BLACK!! She has gotten away with too much for her to stop now! Perhaps her age will determine her unwillingness to quit being such a bigoted big mouth! I had some one recently (a black friend) tell me that blacks will never be indicted no matter what they do, because of BLM. She said those who don’t go along with this stupidity are afraid of their own ethic group!! I certainly understand her remark, since blacks are killing blacks!!

  5. Bet Maxine won’t be held responsible for the people who die because of her rhetoric… the woman was never held responsible for inciting people to surround and intimidate anyone who is republican… people died because of her, Pelosi and Shumer but NOTHING WAS DONE ABOUT IT!!!

  6. Big mouth waters is a racist,telling people to riot but she is a democrat they can do what ever she want=Do you see any democrat condemning he racist action”no”I hope no one gets hurt.If they do she should go to jail.

  7. Arrest her for inciting a riot! She is too militant to be in our government, and should be kicked out! And then send her to prison for unAmerican activity, and embezzling money! She gets away with this crap because she can. She needs to be shown she can’t!

  8. She should move back into the district that voted for her instead of living next to all those ol white folks that are her neighbors

  9. She is inciting riots. Blood is on her hands. Look what happened to the National Guard members after she told rioters to get more active and confrontational.

  10. Free Speech is being censored by Big Tech and Social Media groups but this obnoxious women is a disgrace to her people in every way shape and form and does not know when to sut her mouth.

  11. Her hypocrisy is outrageous. She is doing the same thing she accused President Trump of doing, inciting a riot. But she’s a leftist and nothing will happen to her. This is not the first time she has done this.

  12. Isn’t she actually guilty of what they accused Trump of during the riot on Jan 6th? They tried to impeach Trump over it. It’s time for Waters to go!

  13. Waters, just like ALL the left and Left MSM say these things with supposed impunity.
    MSM is accountable for anything and Maxine controls the House as Nancy is on extended liquid lunch, or is terrified of her.

  14. Why do you delete me? Shes racst, shes corrupt with million dollar manson outside her district, what am I wsaying that others havent said here? Whats the Reply space for anyway?

  15. MAD MAX HAS GOT TO GO. This WRETCHED woman spews nothing but hate and contempt for American and its citizens …

  16. If she is not removed from Congress then they admit the tried to screw Trump over Jan 6, as they were calling for confict in Congress. Now lets see if they actually try , convict , remove her and the Squad/ AOC for calling for violence to get their way. We will see what happens to further destroy the nation from the Democratic left.

  17. She needs to be removed from her political seat. If a republican had said what she has said Ms. Waters would be demanding their removal from Congress. This is to me abstraction of Justice, abuse of her office by inciting a riot of the people. This is DEFINITELY NOT what a leader should do and how they should act. By the way, isn’t she supposed to live in her Congressional District, why has issue not come into play. I say REMOVE HER FROM OFFICE NOW.

  18. Piglosi doesn’t think waters should appologise for what she said! Double standard! trump said “ March peacefully” Piglosi impeached him. Waters says riot and it’s ok! Those two old bit**es need to be kicked out of congress! They are unfit to hold office!

  19. I’m not saying all but when some people get older if they were mean to begin with they really get down right terrible & nasty when they get dementia, etc., Waters, Pelosi & Biden all act crazy, mean & loose their tempers at the drop of a hat. They think inciting riots, harming or killing people is what they need to do clearly either an evil, vile crazy people or someone with major problem in their brains. I’ve never seen anyone hate as much as Waters & Pelosi just not normal & Joe is just about as bad.
    THESE PEOPLE SHOULDN’T BE LEADING OUR COUNTRY, WE NEVER KNOW WHEN THEY WILL CRACK & CAUSE A MAJOR PROBLEM, JUST LIKE WE SEE IN OUR GOVERNMENT TODAY!! Please get these nuts out of office NOW!!
