Democrat Rep. Waters Calls on Protestors to ‘Stay on the Street’ if Chauvin Acquitted of Murder

Published

Maxine Waters

Over the weekend Democratic Congresswoman from California Maxine Waters showed up at a protest in Minnesota and instructed the demonstrators to “stay on the street.” Did she incite violence? Will Twitter be permanently suspending her account because of a moral obligation to protect the country from opinionated politicians? Doubtful.

“I’m going to fight with all of the people who stand for justice…we’ve got to get justice in this country and we cannot allow these killings to continue,” Waters told a group of reporters regarding the anti-police brutality protest Saturday.

Reporters asked Waters to address the Derek Chauvin trial for the murder of George Floyd that is underway currently in Minnesota. The Congresswoman said if officer Chauvin is not 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.”

One politician is already pushing to see whether or not Waters’ fellow Democrats will continue to practice what they claim to preach: no inciting violence. Republican Congresswoman from Georgia, Marjorie Taylor Greene, released a statement less than 24 hours after Waters’ remarks.

“I’ll be introducing a resolution to expel Rep. Maxine Waters from Congress for her continual incitement of violence” the statement from Greene’s office read. Greene also accused Waters of inciting “Black Lives Matter domestic terrorists to fire gunshots at National Guardsmen in Minnesota” after she spoke at the Brooklyn Center “which has become a flashpoint for protests following the fatal police shooting of Daunted Wright” reports Fox News.

82-year-old Waters has been a member of Congress since 1991. Likely she is not going anywhere, nor will be expelled from Congress or Twitter for her rhetoric for one reason, and one reason alone: she is not Donald Trump.

    So Waters is judge and jury before the actual outcome. Shame on her. She represents another reason for term limits. Her conversations are course and crude at times. What ever happened to solutions to issues using ‘honey ‘instead of vinegar’? Her conversations and words are divisive…something that appeared to be lessening under Trump. Trump created jobs, recognized all people and made positive strides towards racial issues. Jobs alone gave people a sense of self-worth and self dependency which creates a good kind of pride. Waters is showing arrogance and ignorance.

    Privileged. Woke female and black-double privileged. If she were conservative (no matter the color) she would be a racist, terrorist inciting violence according to the Dems and their pit bull MSM.

    Democrats are in power, they will not expel any of their kind no matter what. Just take a look at Eric Swalwell he is still serving and on the Intel Committee noless, and he was sleeping with a Chinese spy. Also Waters is black we now have two reasons Congress would never expel her. Keep in mind this is not the first time she has done this.

    Waters is a National disgrace and should be forced to resign.

    Incendiary, toxic, hate mongering, race baiting bitch should be removed from Congress, prosecuted and imprisoned. But she won’t be. Why? Because she’s a black Democrat rapping, lips flapping and body wailing about a white cop. She’s untouchable. Whatever the verdict, it won’t be enough to placate Burn Loot Murder and their ‘soul sister’ Maxine Waters. They’ll riot, loot, burn and kill ‘one more time’ because that’s what black ghetto vermin do. They’re animals.

    Congresswoman Waters is inciting violence and riots! How is it that Democratic Politicians can say and do whatever they want to and not be reprimanded. Our “so called” President is a coward. Not once has he taken a firm stand against AOC, Talib or Maxine Waters when they make demands that put our country in jeopardy.
    He is obviously demented and half the time does not know where he is. It is shameful that he has stopped the wall and caused a catastrophe at the boarder putting children in harms way. What ever the verdict is for Chauvin, we have to accept it and move on to the next lawsuit against a police officer. Rep. Waters needs to practice what the Dems preach snd stop inciting trouble. We need to get back to law snd order in this country!

    Waters is acting un-American. She took a vow to defend the Constitution- yes, she’s exercising her freedom of speech but she is encouraging rioting, not peaceful protests. She needs to be reined in, at the least, if not expelled from Congress for incitement to riot. She is out of control and not following rule of law. Our due process needs to be able to work and if we followed her and her rhetoric, we’d all be anarchists.

    She needs to go and is another example of why we need term limits. She has personally profited while in Congress and doesn’t even live in her district. She is a hateful woman. Leo, you should run for her seat.!

Youngkin Replaces State’s Department of Equity and Inclusion with Anti-CRT Leaders

Move over ‘Critical Race Theory’ there’s a new Sheriff in town

Published

Move over ‘Critical Race Theory’ there’s a new Sheriff in town. Newly elected Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin just ripped the roof off of Virginia’s “woke” elite. Youngkin completely gutted the employees of the state’s Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) and then rebuilt it, filling the positions with reasonable individuals.

Christopher Rufo tweeted, “Glenn Youngkin has asked all of the state’s DEI employees to resign and tapped anti-critical race theory leader Angela Sailor to lead the department. In her first move, Sailor eliminated the word ‘equity’ and replaced it with ‘opportunity.”

Youngkin asked all of the state’s DEI employees to resign, then put Sailor in charge to lead the department. Sailor is a former policy expert at The Heritage Foundation;. Having replaced the word ‘equity’ for ‘opportunity’ at the department, Sailor is now formally the DOI “Director of Diversity, Opportunity and Inclusion.”

Citizen Free Press reports “Youngkin also issued an executive order to refocus the DEI office, tasking Sailor and her staff to work on economic opportunity, cooperation among religious groups, promoting ‘free speech and civil discourse’ at colleges and universities, and ensuring that Virginia’s history curriculum is ‘honest, objective, and complete.”

Rufo’s tweet included a link to an article by the Richmond Times-Dispatch which reported “Former Gov. Ralph Northam created the state’s Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in 2019 in the aftermath of the blackface scandal that nearly ended his term. The office has been unstaffed since its former chief and her four staffers, who served at the will of the governor, were not asked to stay in their jobs.”

Richmond Times-Dispatch reports:

Youngkin’s first executive order signed Saturday seeks to ban “inherently divisive” concepts from Virginia classrooms.

In recent blog posts for The Heritage Foundation, Sailor said that lessons arguing that “America is systemically racist,” are “the textbook definition of racism.”

“No one would argue that children shouldn’t be thoroughly taught about the evils of racism, slavery, and segregation that happened in this country,” she wrote in July in a piece titled, “Schools Hiding Behind Diversity and Inclusion Rhetoric to Spew Critical Race Theory Vile.”

“But [critical race theory] ignores the hundreds of thousands of lives that were sacrificed during the Civil War to end slavery, the long struggle of the civil rights movement to end segregation and win equality, and the reality that the nation has made great progress.”

Sen. Sinema Appears To Quickly Pull A U-Turn After Seeing Biden

Published

Joe Biden
Kyrsten Sinema

Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) – who dealt a potentially fatal blow to the Democrats’ election reform legislation by refusing President Biden’s push to reform Senate filibuster rules – appears to have avoided Biden as he spoke to reporters after meeting with Senate Democrats to the legislation.

In a video posted on YouTube, as Biden speaks to reporters, Sinema can be seen emerging from a Senate room in the background. As soon as Sinema appears to see Biden, she turns around and walks in the other direction.

Under current Senate rules, at least 60 senators would need to support Biden’s election reform legislation for it to pass. With the 50-50 split in the Senate, Democrats would need at least 10 Republicans to support the bill for it to have any chance of passing. In order to bypass this, Biden has pushed for eliminating the filibuster, which would effectively allow Democrats to ram through their legislation.

On Thursday, Sinema announced that she did not support eliminating the filibuster to allow the bills to pass through the Senate.

“There’s no need for me to restate my longstanding support for the 60-vote threshold to pass legislation. There’s no need for me to restate its role in protecting our country from wild reversals of federal policy,” Sinema said, according to Fox News. “This week’s harried discussions about Senate rules are but a poor substitute for what I believe could have and should have been a thoughtful public debate at any time over the past year.”

“But what is the legislative filibuster, other than a tool that requires new federal policy to be broadly supported by senators, representing the broader cross-section of Americans… Demands to eliminate this threshold from whichever party holds the fleeting majority amount to a group of people separated on two sides of a canyon, shouting that solution to their colleagues,” she continued.

“These bills help treat the symptoms of the disease, but they do not fully address the disease itself. And while I continue to support these bills, I will not support separate actions that worsen the underlying disease of division affecting our country,” Sinema added.

“Some have given up on the goal of erasing our divisions and uniting Americans. I have not,” Sinema stated. “I’ve worked hard to demonstrate in my public service, the value of working with unlikely allies to get results.”
