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.!

‘Every Word Of This Is False’: Ted Cruz Factchecks Ilhan Omar’s Attack On Coach Kennedy Prayer Case

Published

on

Rep. Ilhan Omar

On Monday night, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) factchecked Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) after she made multiple false claims about the Supreme Court ruling in Kennedy v. Bremerton School District, in which the Court ruled 6-3 that a public high school football coach in Washington state had his First Amendment rights violated when he was punished by his school district for praying on the field after games where students could see.

As previously reported, “In 2008, high school football coach Joseph Kennedy began a tradition of praying at midfield after each game. Over time, his players and even members of the opposing team began to join him. In September 2015, a school administrator addressed the matter with Kennedy after an opposing team complained and the coach briefly stopped his prayers.”

“On October 14, 2015, Kennedy told the school district that he was planning on resuming his prayer tradition at the next game. The school district told the coach that his prayers violated the district’s policy, but Kennedy continued to pray at the next two games. The school district subsequently placed him on administrative leave, banned him from participating in the football program, and refused to renew his contract for the following season. Kennedy took the issue to federal district court, arguing that the school district had violated his First Amendment rights,” the report added.

In response to the Supreme Court ruling in favor of Kennedy, Omar tweeted, “The Supreme Court just ruled that public school teachers can pressure students to join in prayer at public school events but can also retaliate against those that don’t join in. Religious freedom is dead in America.”

“Every word of this is false,” Cruz responded.

Omar’s claim that the Supreme Court’s decision allowed to teachers to “pressure students to join prayer” is false. The Court’s ruling just protected Coach Kennedy’s religious freedom to pray publicly.

Omar was also incorrect in claiming that there would be retaliation against students who did not join Kennedy in prayer – the coach’s tradition of praying after games began with him praying alone at midfield after football games. Kennedy’s school district even noted that Kennedy had “not actively encouraged, or required, participation.”

Additionally, in contrast to Omar’s claim that “religious freedom is dead in America,” the Supreme Court ruling actually strengthened protections of religious freedom.

Writing for the majority opinion, Justice Neil Gorsuch explained, “Respect for religious expressions is indispensable to life in a free and diverse Republic—whether those expressions take place in a sanctuary or on a field, and whether they manifest through the spoken word or a bowed head.”

“Here, a government entity sought to punish an individual for engaging in a brief, quiet, personal religious observance doubly protected by the Free Exercise and Free Speech Clauses of the First Amendment,” Gorsuch added. “And the only meaningful justification the government offered for its reprisal rested on a mistaken view that it had a duty to ferret out and suppress religious observances even as it allows comparable secular speech. The Constitution neither mandates nor tolerates that kind of discrimination. Mr. Kennedy is entitled to summary judgment on his First Amendment claims.”
