Democrats Block McCarthy Resolution To Censure Maxine Waters Over Protest Comments

Ever since the volatile racist Maxine Waters (D-Cal.) was elected by The Left Coast in 1991, she has increasingly become a rabble-rising ghoul and this weekend, when the woman oblivious to national shame and forever carrying a grudge, unmistakably incited a riot with the words that protesters "must get more confrontational" to law enforcement, I believe the Justice Department has due cause to put her evil self behind bars. We've got to get more confrontational.

The comments, excused by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the White House, drew the admonishment of Judge Peter Cahill who presides over Chavuvin's trial.

He also criticized Waters for breaking the city's curfew, but as Waters pointed out, a police-imposed curfew to silence people protesting police violence is an unjust rule and doesn't deserve to be heeded. Republicans quickly latched on to her words and have accused Waters of "inciting violence".

House Democratic Leader Steny Hoyer also defended Waters on Tuesday, telling reporters that Waters used the word "confrontational" to mean they should face the broken USA criminal justice system head on.

McCarthy said that Waters, who represents California, went to Minnesota "to interfere in its judicial system" in violation of a curfew. Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor-Greene vowed on Twitter to introduce a resolution to eject Waters from her seat in the House of Representatives.

"I love my colleagues, and they love me", she said after the vote.

Waters brushed aside the criticism, saying she has always promoted nonviolence and accusing Republicans of "bullying" her.

"Kevin McCarthy should focus on his own conference because the Republicans in the House are a mess right now", Democratic Caucus Chair Rep. Hakeem Jeffries said during a press conference Tuesday.

"Perhaps he should sit this one out", Jeffries said.

"They are undermining the ability of the police to function, and they are going to create a situation where our very civilization is at threat from forces that are, I think, extraordinarily destructive", he said. Others, such as the New York Post editorial board, have called for Waters's impeachment, making it quite clear in the board's view that the Congresswoman's "irresponsible rhetoric is inciting violence". "You've got no credibility here", Jeffries said.

"We support peaceful protests, consistent with the First Amendment, freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom of assembly, and the right to petition the government peacefully".

"I am nonviolent", she told The Grio.

'It is beyond the pale for a sitting member of the United States Congress to look at what happened last summer and imply there should be some kind of a sequel if a legal case does not unfold as she thinks it should, ' McConnell added.
