Maxine Waters: Protesters Need to “Get More Confrontational” If No “Murder” Conviction Of Derek Chauvin
“We got to stay on the streets, we’ve got to get more confrontational. We got to make sure they know we mean business.”
California Rep. Maxine Waters traveled to Brooklyn Center, Minnesota to attend a protest over the reportedly accidental police shooting of Daunte Wright. While there, Waters said that rioters need to “get more confrontational” if they don’t get the guilty verdict they’re demanding in the trial of Derek Chauvin.
Fiery California Rep. Maxine Waters joined hundreds of angry protesters who thronged Brooklyn Center, Minnesota early Sunday, all breaking the 11 p.m. curfew together during the seventh night of protests against the police killing of Daunte Wright.
“We’ve got to stay in the streets, and we’ve got to demand justice,” she urged the crowd, according to one tweeted clip.
“We’re looking for a guilty verdict” in Derek Chauvin’s trial for the police killing of George Floyd, where deliberations will begin next week, she said.
“And if we don’t, we cannot go away,” she added. “We’ve got to get more confrontational.”

Apparently, Waters is under the mistaken impression that our justice system works on the basis of angry mobs demanding the verdict they want.
Her comments are sadly not at all surprising given her penchant for issuing orders to leftist mobs she appears to see as her own personal “justice” brigade. Remember her statement about making sure no member of the Trump cabinet was welcome anywhere? She said: “If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”
Republicans have responded to Waters’ latest outrageous comments as one might expect to such irresponsible language and behavior from a sitting member of Congress.
“Telling rioters who have burned buildings, looted stores, and assaulted journalists to get ‘more confrontational’ is incredibly irresponsible. Every House Democrat should condemn Maxine Waters’ call for violence,” National Republican Congressional Committee spokesman Mike Berg told Fox News.
“Why is Maxine Waters traveling to a different state trying to incite a riot? What good can come from this?” Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., wrote on Twitter.
“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. As long as the Left appeases their anti-America base, their job is done,” Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., wrote on Twitter.
“Why is a sitting member of Congress encouraging protesters to get ‘confrontational?'” Rep. Ken Buck, R-Colo., wrote on Twitter.
