Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) asked for a police escort in Minneapolis over the weekend; she went to urge activists to “stay in streets” protesting police.
A document obtained and published by Townhall Monday appears to show the request Waters is listed as the primary protectee with “Police escort In & Out” listed under special requests.
“Waters flew from Dulles International Airport to Minnesota-St. Paul International Airport on Saturday, April 17, just days ahead of a verdict in the George Floyd, Officer Derek Chauvin trial,” the report said.
Waters is shown in the video, surrounded by reporters and protesters outside the Brooklyn Center police station. She told citizens to hit the streets unless Chauvin was convicted of murder.
“We’re looking for a guilty verdict,” she said. “And we’re looking to see if all of the talk that took place and has been taking place after they saw what happened to George Floyd, if nothing does not happen, then we know that we’ve got to not only stay in the street, but we’ve got to fight for justice.”
“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.”
House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) urged House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to take action because of the congresswomen’s comments.
Some lawmakers have called on fellow Californian Speaker Nancy Pelosi to take action against Waters. Others, including New York candidate for governor Rep. Lee Zeldin and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, have called for her expulsion from Congress.
Tucker Carlson told his viewers: Leading Democrats aren’t going to punish Maxine Waters because they’re not embarrassed to Maxine Waters. Because they agree with Maxine Waters.
“Maxine Waters is someone who supports mob violence.”
“Waters has never believed in Western justice. For decades, she supported the totalitarian government of Cuba, which replaced jury trials with summary mass executions of entire groups of people.”
“That was fine with Maxine Waters. She’s never had a problem with killing political enemies.”
“Is Maxine Waters greater of guilty of greater incitement than Donald Trump? Well, of course, but that’s not the point.”
“People like Maxine Waters don’t care if you point out that they’re hypocrites. They don’t care if you catch them lying. You’re wasting your breath. They are not ashamed, and they never will be ashamed.”
