Waters is an anti white race batter and hate monger. A chorus of Republicans blasted Rep. Maxine Waters Sunday for telling angry protesters to “stay in the streets” and “get more confrontational” during the seven-straight night of unrest in Minnesota — saying the California Democrat’s fiery comments could incite violence in a state already on edge. Waters stood alongside demonstrators in Brooklyn Center early Sunday morning –breaking a curfew set by police — to encourage them to make their voices heard following the fatal police shooting of Daunte Wright and ahead of as closing arguments in the trial of former police officer Derek Chauvin for the death of George Floyd.
“We’ve got to stay in the streets, and we’ve got to demand justice,” she urged the crowd, who earlier had been chanting: “No good cops in a racist system!” “F–K your curfew!” and “No justice, no peace!” “We’re looking for a guilty verdict” in the Chauvin case, Waters said. “And if we don’t, we cannot go away, we’ve got to get more confrontational.”
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said Waters’ remarks are a reflection of the Democratic Party’s overall agenda. “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,” Cruz said on Twitter. Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) questioned why Waters traveled from California to Minnesota. “Why is Maxine Waters traveling to a different state trying to incite a riot? What good can come from this?” she asked in a Twitter post.
