No one could believe what she said.
Everyone was immediately on high alert.
Now, the Democrats are furious after Maxine Waters made this insane statement.
It is no secret that tensions have been running high these past few weeks.
The trial for Derek Chauvin for the death of George Floyd has made a huge stir, with protestors waiting outside the courthouse for the verdict.
Ultimately, Chauvin was found guilty and charged with second degree murder, but the air surrounding the trial has been tense with worry.
Before the verdict was delivered, US Representative Maxine Waters stated her opinions about the protests surrounding the courthouse.
Ryan Saaverdra of the Daily Wire reported:
“Waters said at a protest in Minnesota over the weekend that “protesters” were “looking for a guilty verdict,” and if they don’t get what they want, then “we cannot go away.” Regarding what “protesters” should do if they do not get the verdict that they want, Waters responded that activists have “got to stay on the street,” “get more active,” and “get more confrontational.”
Several prominent Democrats have struck back against Waters for her comments encouraging the protesters to “get more confrontational.”
Several are reportedly “so angry” that they are willing to back her censure led by the GOP, which would remove her from the position of chairwoman of the House of Financial Services.
Fox News reporter Chad Pergram stated that the anger against Waters “metastasized” after Judge Peter Cahill, who presided over the George Floyd case, publicly called out Waters on live television during closing arguments on Monday.
Pergram summed up the situation when he wrote:
“Some Democrats conceded privately they are not pleased with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) saying that Waters shouldn’t apologize. Fox is told that a lot of Democrats are angry at Waters, are concerned about the optics of potential violence being linked back to her and Democrats generally.”
Therein lies the crux of the matter: The Democrats are worried about violence being linked to them after their uphill struggle to free themselves of those sorts of connections.
Additionally, Pergram stated:
“The reason those Democrats are reportedly mad at Waters doesn’t appear to be based on any kind of moral conundrum they have with what she said, but rather because they are “concerned about the optics of potential violence being linked back to her and Democrats generally.”
Unfortunately, this is the truth.
The Democrats aren’t plagued by the worry of the morality of violence during protests, they simply don’t want to be linked to it in any definitive way.
Moderate Democrats took a huge hit this past election season as the far-left pushed for the “defund the police” movement.
Now, the Democrats are doing all they can to fix their public image, even if it means taking down one of their own.
