BROOKLYN CENTER, MN – Congresswoman Maxine Waters is not from Minnesota. She’s not the elected representative of the people of Brooklyn Center, Minnesota either. Never one to let a good crisis go to waste, Waters flew to Minnesota to spark racial violence, telling protesters that unless Derek Chauvin is convicted, people should take the streets and get more aggressive, more confrontational and more violent against those she called ‘racists’.
If Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin is not convicted of first-degree murder by the jury in his case, she urged protesters to turn up the heat against racists. Chauvin is facing trial for the death of George Floyd. She said manslaughter is not an acceptable outcome in the case.
“We’re looking for a guilty verdict,” Maxine Waters told protesters in Brooklyn Center. “We gotta stay on the streets. We gotta stay active. We gotta get more confrontational. We got to make sure they know that we mean business.”
Waters also called Republicans in Congress who oppose justice reform racists and urged violence against those who oppose the Democrat Party’s agenda.
Chauvin has not been charged with first-degree murder.
