There are few members of Congress more controversial than California House Rep. Maxine Waters.
The feisty Democrat has been one of the many on the left who’ve succumbed to the idea that their job is to oppose the Republicans at all costs…even when the American people are overwhelmingly in favor of compromise. In this way, Waters is a bottleneck for the progress of our nation, and she serves as a true example of what is wrong with Capitol Hill.
But Maxine is more than that, too. She is an anger-monger, constantly riling up the young and exuberant Democratic base, even going so far as to suggest that her followers seek out conservatives and publicly shame them…which they did.
Now she’s at it again, turning up the heat in a nation that’s already burnt.
U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., showed up at an anti-police brutality protest in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, on Saturday evening, saying demonstrators needed to “stay on the street,” demanding justice until police reform becomes a reality.Trending:
“I’m going to fight with all of the people who stand for justice,” Waters told reporters shortly before an 11 p.m. curfew. “We’ve got to get justice in this country and we cannot allow these killings to continue.”
Asked about the Derek Chauvin murder trial in Minneapolis, Waters told reporters if the former police officer isn’t found guilty of murdering George Floyd, “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.”
We can only hope that the confrontational ethos of Maxine Waters doesn’t turn into a combative one.
