Backlash is continuing to mount against Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) who publicly stated on Saturday that if Derek Chauvin is not found guilty, activists should become “more confrontational” on the streets.
Pushing the narrative that the mob can serve justice outside of the court system, Waters explicitly stated that “We’re looking for a guilty verdict.” She then went on to instruct viewers to “fight for justice” if the courts fail to find Chauvin “guilty, guilty, guilty.”
When asked what she thought activists should do should Chauvin be exonerated, Waters told them to “stay on the street” and “get more active. . . more confrontational.”
It’s had to imagine what could be more confrontational than razing and looting U.S. cities like a Mongol horde.
Waters made headlines in 2018 when she called on the public to harass members of Trump’s presidential cabinet. She instructed the public to seek out members of the administration and “tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”
The New York Post Editorial Board issued a statement in response to Waters most recent comments, claiming that she is “trying to create a Civil War.” They also suggested that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) should use her power to initiate a vote to “remove Waters from office”
