Maxine Waters Shows up in Brooklyn Center, Tells Protesters to Get ‘More Confrontational’

U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters made a brief appearance Saturday night outside a police station in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, where crowds have gathered for seven consecutive nights to protest the shooting of Daunte Wright.

Wright was killed last Sunday by former Brooklyn Center police officer Kim Potter, who has since been charged with manslaughter. Meanwhile, the murder trial of former Minneapolis officer Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd is scheduled to hold closing arguments Monday.

If Chauvin isn’t convicted, then “we know we’ve got to not only stay in the street, but we’ve got to fight for justice,” Waters said.

“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,” she added.

Waters was also asked for her thoughts on Brooklyn Center’s use of curfews amid the unrest.

“I don’t know what curfew means. Curfew means that I want y’all to stop talking. I want y’all to stop leading. I want y’all to stop gathering. I don’t agree with that,” she responded.

The California congresswoman said she has doubts about whether Congress will be able to pass police reform legislation because “the right wing, the racists are opposed to it.”

“But I know this: we’ve got to stay in the street and we’ve got to demand justice,” she continued.

Waters faced backlash in 2018 for making similar comments when she called for harassing Trump officials in public spaces.

    There are times when one needs to “stop talking”. Most of those times are when one is in the wrong. What we need is the news media to “comment” on how incredibly stupid people like Maxine Waters actually are.
    If you are going to stand in the square and shout “Justice”, you must first, yourself, be just. Waters has already displayed that she is not Just. This crap of “confrontation” is just bullying, and bullies need to be shut down.
    Floyd and Wright, in my opinion, have already gotten their “justice”. They have already felt the consequences of their actions. They made their decisions, chose their actions, and got what they deserve.

    Traveling across state lines to incite rioting is illegal. This person is a criminal and a typical liberal. The donks clamored to prosecute President Trump for inciting the civil disobedience at the capitol, but Waters’ statements are so much more encouraging of violence. But, of course nothing will happen to her as laws are for us peons, not the privileged politicians.

  6. Ms Independent

    She should be expelled for inciting violence and rioting! Crazy woman needs to be in a mental institution if they still existed!!
