Democrat Maxine Waters Requested An Armed Police Escort to An Anti Police Protest
Hello, and welcome to American Truth Projects, Really Dumb Things They Said. I'm Barry Nussbaum.
Democrat Maxine Waters of California requested an armed police escort to an anti-police protest in Minneapolis this weekend. While at the event, she called for riots if former police officer Derek Chauvin was not found guilty of the murder of George Floyd.
U.S. Capitol Police reportedly put in the request for police to accompany Waters on her trip to Minnesota, so she could rile up the demonstrators and urge them to get more confrontational. Congresswoman Waters also encouraged rioters to stay on the street and get more active.
She continued, "We've got to get more confrontational. We've got to make sure that they know that we mean business," and that's from the Congresswoman from California.
These comments are not just dumb. They're incitement to riot at minimum, and Congress should have censored her. But sadly, and dumbly, 100% of all congressional Democrats voted to protect her from punishment even though she asked for a police escort to a Ban the Police Rally and encouraged a riot while doing it.
