ANALYSIS – Homeland Security – While Democrat political leaders continue to condemn right-wing ‘extremism’ and search for ‘domestic terrorism’ in every nook and cranny of American society, some openly call for left wing extremism. In this case, far left California Congresswoman Maxine Waters is calling for violent riots in the streets if the trial of Derek Chauvin doesn’t go the way she wants it to go.
However, on January 6 Waters was singing a very different tune about protesting results we don’t like and inciting riots when she issued a press release warning that “Right-Wing Extremists Prepare to Protest election Results.” She added: “Congress must take seriously the threat that the President of the United States has created by encouraging his supporters to come to Washington, DC and protest.”
Apparently Waters believes that the ‘rules are for thee, not me.”
Waters appeared at the violent Brooklyn Center protests in Minnesota on Saturday saying: ‘We gotta stay on the street,’ encouraging protesters to break the law and ignore the night’s curfew.
Waters joined the protesters as demonstrations entered a seventh night on Saturday. Waters told the protesters at Brooklyn Center that she will fight for justice on their behalf and urged them to ‘to get more confrontational’ – just one day after protests descended into violent rioting.
According to The Guardian Waters said: “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.”
Of Chauvin, Waters said: “I hope we’re going to get a verdict that will say guilty, guilty, guilty. And if we don’t, we cannot go away.”

Republican lawmakers responded promptly accusing Waters of inciting violence, and even domestic terrorism, and are demanding House Speaker Nancy Pelosi take formal action against Waters.
Texas GOP Senator Ted Cruz tweeted: “Democrats actively encouraging riots & violence. They want to tear us apart.”

According to Newsweek, GOP Congresswoman Lauren Boebert of Colorado tweeted that Waters “should be arrested and charged with domestic terrorism.” Boebert added: “Why is Maxine Waters traveling to a different state trying to incite a riot? What good can come from this?”

House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy tweeted: “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.”
