Congresswoman Maxine Waters is now facing formal action from Republicans this week after she allegedly “incited violence” during an anti-police protests outside Minneapolis.
Democrats actively encouraging riots & violence.
They want to tear us apart.
“'We gotta stay on the street,' Waters was recorded saying, adding that protesters needed 'to get more confrontational' & they should ignore the curfew in place.” https://t.co/PWW7YNDbKR

Maxine Waters is inciting violence in Minneapolis — just as she has incited it in the past. If Speaker Pelosi doesn’t act against this dangerous rhetoric, I will bring action this week.

Waters faced a growing backlash from Republicans over the weekend after she told demonstrators in Minnesota to “get more confrontational” and show America “we mean business.”
“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,” the Congresswoman told protesters outside Minneapolis when asked to comment on a potential not-guilty verdict in the trial of Derek Chauvin.
“We cannot go away!” she added.
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.https://t.co/bmBJEsrCdn

“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? https://t.co/nXzV0trmN3

BUSTED: Video Surfaces of Maxine Waters Warmly Embracing Louis Farrakhan
New footage emerged on social media this week showing firebrand Congresswoman Maxine Waters warmly embracing virulent anti-Semite and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan; raising even more questions over the relationship between Farrakhan and prominent Democrats.
“Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), who now leads the House Financial Services Committee, hugs racist and anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan,” posted a reporter from the Daily Wire. “Farrakhan has praised Hitler as being a ‘very great man,’ has called Judaism a ‘gutter religion,’ and compared Jews to ‘termites.’”

It is unclear when the footage was recorded.
The relationship between Farrakhan and leading liberal leaders made national headlines this week, when Women’s March organizer Tamika Mallory defended her previous comments that labeled the Nation of Islam leader the “greatest of all time.”
CARSON’S COMPLAINT: Ben Carson Blasts ‘Shameless’ Maxine Waters, Says She Lacks ‘Basic Manners’
Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson slammed Congresswoman Maxine Waters this week; saying the lawmaker lacks “basic manners” and her “shamelessness knows no bounds.”
“Shamelessness,” Carson wrote, “is a career politician of 30 years laying blame. Shamelessness is allowing more than 55,000 Americans to live on the very streets they represent,” he said about her Congressional district in Los Angeles, California.
“Basic manners elude you and it seems that instead of producing results, you’re more interested in producing cheap headlines at the President’s expense — like a true career politician,” added Carson.
“My mother always taught me that people shouldn’t throw rocks, especially while they live in a glass house,” Carson concluded. “Because of that wise lesson, I was a little surprised to read your hostile letter to President Trump regarding the record number of homeless Americans in California, particularly in your district.”
Waters released an official response to Carson’s comments, saying “Most recently, it was reported that he and this disgraceful President want to raze homeless camps, round up persons experiencing homelessness and force them to live in unused and unsuitable federal buildings.”
“All of this demonstrates his lack of competence as HUD secretary and the cruelty of this Administration,” she added.
