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.'

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.

McClain accuses Maxine Waters of inciting violence in Minnesota

The Detroit News

Washington — Republican U.S. Rep. Lisa McClain is slamming Democratic colleague, Maxine Waters, for saying that supporters of racial justice and Black Lives Matter should "get more confrontational."
But Waters responded to GOP criticism Monday by claiming Republicans were distorting her words and trying to "send a message" to white supremacists.
On the House floor Monday, McClain of Bruce Township accused California's Waters of condoning violence and claimed that, were Waters a Republican, the Democrat-controlled chamber would be voting on expelling her from her committees and potentially from Congress.
"Once again, this weekend we saw a member of the majority openly call for more confrontation in a Minneapolis suburb. That very night, there was a drive-by shooting in that community where police and national guardsmen were targeted," said McClain, a freshman lawmaker.

"The words 'get more confrontational' — what do those words mean? Are those not the words of someone — that someone would use if they wanted to incite more violence or insurrection?

"If the majority cares about this institution, if the majority cares about our nation, they need to get their own house in order and tamp down on the vile rhetoric."

McClain spoke just after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi opened Monday's House session. Shortly after, Pelosi told reporters that Waters did not need to apologize for what she said, but that McClain should.

"That woman on the floor should be apologizing for what she said," Pelosi said, referring to McClain. "She was attributing some murder — some incident that happened after that to Maxine's statement," Pelosi continued.

"No, Maxine talked about confrontation in the manner of the Civil Rights movement. I myself think we should take our lead from the George Floyd family: They've handled this with great dignity. ... No, I don't think she should apologize."

Asked if Waters' comments incite violence, Pelosi replied, "absolutely not."

McClain on Twitter said, "As 'that woman,' no, I won't apologize for calling out the double standards that you have set, @SpeakerPelosi."


Waters was in Minnesota over the weekend and was asked by reporters about the trial of Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer on trial for murder in the killing of a Black man, George Floyd, last year.

Waters told reporters that if Chauvin isn't found guilty, "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," according to Fox News.

Waters in an interview with TheGrio said she is nonviolent and that Republicans were purposely distorting her words.

“I talk about confronting the justice system, confronting the policing that’s going on, I’m talking about speaking up. I’m talking about legislation. I’m talking about elected officials doing what needs to be done to control their budgets and to pass legislation," Waters said.

"I am not worried that they’re going to continue to distort what I say. This is who they are and this is how they act. And I’m not going to be bullied by them."

Waters also came under fire from Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California, who tweeted Sunday that if Pelosi "doesn’t act against this dangerous rhetoric, I will bring action this week."

Another Republican lawmaker, Marjorie Taylor Greene, on Sunday announced an effort to expel Waters from Congress. Greene was expelled from her committees in February over past inflammatory remarks.

I am getting to the point that maybe the police should start to use lethal force on these communist red guard thugs. Otherwise, these communist thugs like BLM and ANTIFA will only make things get worse. They are the enemy of we the people. Just saying.
A better idea might be the press gang . For some reason I am sure 6 months off rock and roll , up and down might not appeal much .
