Maxine Waters’ actions in Minneapolis were both foolish and risky. It was a blunder that a woman like her, who has been in politics for more than 120 years, could not make at her age.
Mad Max, on the other hand, is unable to stop herself. She’s been a radical communist for the majority of her career, and calling for “abuse” is nothing new for her, so I think it’s just who she is.
Like Al Sharpton, who can’t seem to get enough of jumping on private planes and race-baiting around the world.
However, Maxine’s statements went from “dangerous and dumb” to “catastrophic” when the judge in the Derek Chauvin trial stepped in and called Water’s comments “abhorrent,” also suggesting that Chauvin’s entire trial could be reversed on appeal because of her remarks.
She gave the Right a significant gift, and now they’re after her. Kevin McCarthy is calling for Maxine Waters to be censured, and word on the street is that some Democrats are so angry with her behind the scenes that they’re willing to go along with Republicans and have Mad Max removed from her committees.
According to the Daily Wire, some Democratic lawmakers are “so upset” about remarks made by Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) about the Chauvin trial over the weekend that they are willing to support a GOP-led censure of her, which would result in her losing her place as chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee.
At a rally in Minnesota over the weekend, Waters said that “protesters” were “asking for a guilty verdict,” and that if they didn’t get one, “we cannot go away.” When asked what activists should do if they don’t get the outcome they want, Waters said they should “keep on the ground,” “get more involved,” and “get more organized.”
Judge Peter Cahill, who is presiding over the case involving the death of George Floyd, slammed Waters on live television during closing arguments on Monday, according to Fox News reporter Chad Pergram, outrage among some Democrats “metastasized.”
“Some Democrats privately expressed dissatisfaction with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) statement that Waters should not apologize,” Pergram wrote. “A lot of Democrats are angry at Waters, and they’re worried about the optics of possible abuse being connected to her and Democrats in general,” Fox reports.
Now that Judge Cahill has come out and blasted her, it will be fascinating to see how this all plays out.
This gives the whole controversy fresh and much more powerful legs.
What irritates Democrats the most is that Waters isn’t considering the vicious political beating she’s receiving over the extremists’ “Defund The Police” nonsense – or maybe she is, and she really doesn’t care?
Maxine Waters’ leap here has the same anti-cop vibe that has turned off Americans – we’re not seeing “protests” in Minneapolis, we’re watching riots – and she’s promoting more of it while subtly endorsing “defund the cops” messages and agendas.
Given the GOP’s weakness, it’ll be difficult to imagine Waters escaping punishment for this.
