Maxine Waters tells BLM protesters 'get more confrontational'

 

 

California Representative Maxine Waters joined protesters in Minnesota  as demonstrations entered a seventh night on Saturday after the death of Daunte Wright.

 

Waters told the protesters at Brooklyn Center that she will fight for justice on their behalf and urged them to 'to get more confrontational' - just one day after protests descended into violence.

'I am not happy that we have talked about police reform for so long,' Waters said. 'We're looking for a guilty verdict,' she added in regards to the Derek Chauvin trial. 'If we don't, we cannot go away.'

'We gotta stay on the street,' Waters was recorded saying, adding that protesters needed 'to get more confrontational' and they should ignore the curfew in place.

Her comments sparked outrage on Twitter.

'Of course she’ll get away with saying that while anyone else would’ve been thrown in jail,' Rick Santella tweeted.

Another user tweeted, 'Good grief lady, leave get out of here.'

One person also accused Waters of 'stirring people up again with her calls for violence.'

Waters is planning on staying in town until Monday.

According to CBS Minnesota, officials stated that there was a brief altercation between reporters and proresters as Waters was leaving on Saturday, the first reports of any skirmishes.

The Pioneer Press reports demonstrators gathered Saturday afternoon at the home of Washington County Attorney Pete Orput, responsible for the second-degree manslaughter charges against Kimberly Potter.

The protesters stood outside of Orput's home before marching through is neighborhood in Stillwater.

Black Lives Matter activist Nekima Levy Armstrong relayed that Orput left his home briefly to engage in a conversation with protesters.

Protests have also been taking place in Chicago following the death of 13-year-old Adam Toledo, as well as New York City and across the rest of the United States.

On Friday night, many protests across the nation started off peacefully before sporadic clashes broke out between Black Lives Matters protesters and the police.

The state is also the location of the trial of former police officer Derek Chauvin, charged in the death of George Floyd last year.

The closing arguments in his trial are set for Monday, after which there could be a verdict and the potential for unrest based on that verdict.

University of Minnesota medical students and doctors also marched on the Brooklyn Center Police Department on Saturday, a day after it was the site of most of the night's unrest. 

Peaceful protests on Friday devolved into clashes between protesters and police, with flash bangs and pepper spray utilized by the cops.

There originally wasn't expected to be a curfew for the first time in several days, before one was suddenly imposed during the night's demonstrations. Media members were briefly detained and 136 people were arrested.

A temporary restraining order was filed to prevent police from arresting or harming journalists.

'Following feedback from media, and in light of a recent temporary restraining order (TRO) filed in federal court, MSP will not photograph journalists or their credentials,' the Minnesota State Patrol said in a statement.

There have been no reports of incidents involving members of the media on Saturday night at this point.

According to the Washington Post, several protesters were arrested on Saturday night. It's unclear why they were arrested, as the protest of about a hundred was winding to a close.

Earlier in the day, there were peaceful protests across the nation, including Columbus, Ohio, and Philadelphia.

According to NBC Philadelphia, crowds in that city walked through City Center towards City Hall peacefully in a protest that lasted around five hours.

Nevertheless, some businesses did board up and 1,000 National Guard troops were preemptively deployed.

Here is an interesting fact. Maybe Maxine can protest this.

 

DOJ Report: For Black Victims of Violent Crime, 70.3% of Offenders Are Fellow Blacks

The same report showed that blacks comprise the largest percentage (27.5%) of violent criminal offenders against Asian-Americans. On the flip side, less than 0.1% of Asians are involved in violent crimes against blacks.

A Congressional White Caucus.

A White cable Channel

A white beauty contest.

Wow where is the Democrats that voted for this at? Aren't you a proud group? All of you were calling for the impeachment of Trump over his supposed calls for violence, but now one of your own calls for people to confrontation and not a beep... what a proud group you are!

It's their normal HYPOCRITICAL way of life. They only see ONE side of things.

DOUBLE STANDARDS all the way. They know everything about everything and if facts prove they really don't know Sh1t they just ignore the facts.

Pelosi: Waters shouldn't apologize

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calf.) on Monday said Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) has nothing to apologize for in response to criticism from Republicans over remarks she made in Minnesota over the weekend.

"No, she doesn't," Pelosi said when asked by a reporter if Waters needs to apologize for saying activists for racial justice need to "get more confrontational" when advocating for police reforms.

"That woman on the floor should be apologizing for what she said," Pelosi then said, referencing comments by Rep. Lisa McClain (R-Mich.), who spoke shortly after Pelosi gaveled the House into session for the day.

"Maxine talked about confrontation in the manner of the civil rights movement," Pelosi said, returning to Waters. "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. No, I don't think she should apologize."

Asked if the Waters comments could incite violence, Pelosi said, "No, absolutely not."

Waters on Sunday told a group of protesters and journalists in Brooklyn Center, Minn., where a 20-year-old Black man was shot and killed by a police officer last week, "We've got to make sure that they know that we mean business."

The Twin Cities area in Minnesota is bracing for a verdict in the trial of Derek Chauvin, the former police officer charged with murder in the killing of George Floyd last may.

Republicans have seized on the Waters remarks, and McClain on Monday criticized the California Democrat for the comments.

"Once again, this weekend, we saw a member of the majority openly call for more confrontation in a Minneapolis suburb," McClain said during her floor speech. "That very night, there was a drive-by shooting in that community where police and the National Guardsmen were targeted. If this were reversed, if this was said by a Republican, you know that the majority in this chamber would move to strip that representative of their committees and possibly to expel them from Congress."

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) earlier on Monday accused Waters of "inciting violence" with her comments and called on Pelosi to disavow them.

Waters responded to the Republican criticism in an interview on Monday, saying members of the GOP who expressed outrage at her assertions were attempting to "send a message" to white supremacists.

"Republicans will jump on any word, any line and try to make it fit their message and their cause for denouncing us and denying us, basically calling us violent ... anytime they see an opportunity to seize on a word, so they do it, and they send a message to all of the white supremacists, the KKK, the Oath Keepers, the [Proud] Boys and all of that how this is a time for [Republicans] to raise money on [Democrats'] backs," Waters said.
