I wish someone would ask Representative Maxine Waters why a California representative who sits on the House Financial Services Committee was compelled to travel to Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, to incite further a mob of agitator/activist-led Black Lives Matter protesters if not to promote her own overtly racist views and to generate a photo-op for her 2022 reelection campaign?
Some of Maxine Waters’ fact-free comments relating to ongoing court trials over the accidental shooting of Daunte Wright as he resisted arrest and the Derek Chauvin case for the in-custody death of George Floyd in nearby Minneapolis…
“This is a very difficult time in the history of this country. We have to persist in calling for justice. We have to let people know we’re not going to be satisfied unless we get justice in these cases.
[OCS: As for history, race relations in America were improving until the presidency of Barack Obama who racialized America as part of his fundamental transformation of a nation using identity politics – the only way the Democrat Party can survive.
Of course, Waters does not mean “justice” in a legal sense, she means “justice” according to an agenda-driven, agitator/activist-led mob. Will the mob accept “justice” that finds Wright was accidentally shot while resisting arrest and fleeing custody and the matter should be a civil wrongful death case, not a criminal case? Will the mob accept “justice” that finds Floyd died of a multiplicity of factors and while the optics of the case support one narrative, the facts support another. Again, another civil wrongful death case, not a criminal one.]
“We’ve got to stay on the streets and we’ve got to get more active. We’ve got to get more confrontational. We’ve got to make sure that they know we mean business.”
[OCS: One might think that Waters might be better off urging individuals to submit to a peaceful arrest and not resist arrest or attempt to flee. Then there is the matter of illegal guns in the hands of felons – most of whom ignored the stricter gun control regulations in effect.]
"I’m going to fight with all of the people who stand for justice We’ve got to get justice in this country and we cannot allow these killings to continue."
[OCS: Fight? I thought this was a peaceful protest? One might assume if the people did stand for justice, they would wait for the conclusion of legal proceedings and not try to influence the process through mob intimidation and coercion.
“I don’t know what curfew means. Curfew means that ‘I want you all to stop talking, I want you to stop leading.’ I’m hopeful that the protest will continue.”
[OCS: This is not leadership. This is unjustified civil disobedience. Breaking the curfew is a minor thing – until the mob turns ugly and attacks individuals and property. There is never a justification for rioting, looting, and arson. In this case, breaking a curfew should lead to sentence enhancement, not be the main charge that clogs the justice system.]
Does anyone see Maxine Waters challenging FBI Director Christopher Wray about the threat of armed white supremacist militias? At the same time, nothing is being said about the paramilitary Nation of Islam, the New Black Panthers, and the Marxist Black Lives Matter?

After listening to Maxine Waters' recorded remarks, I find it unconscionable that Waters would appear to threaten the jury and to demand a guilty verdict in the Chauvin case: threatening further violence if Chauvin is found not guilty of murder. "Waters said she was 'hopeful' Chauvin would be convicted of murder, but if he isn’t, 'we cannot go away.'”
Why is Maxine Waters big on gun control and silent on the statistical fact that inner-city blacks are the most egregious violators of gun control and represent an exponentially greater threat to the black community than the police?
Why is Maxine Waters big on criminal justice reform that reduces criminal charges and incarceration for blacks who are killing blacks with their drug and gang activities?
Why is Maxine Waters shooting off her mouth about Adam Toledo without questioning why a 13-year-old was in a Chicago alley at 2:30 in the morning, carrying a gun that was just used, allegedly, by a 21-year-old gang member companion to fire shots at a passing car? Instead of allowing the parents to wail about their loss, where are the charges for child endangerment? It is almost certain that they knew about his gang activities.
But most of all, why is much of Maxine Waters’ constituency still disadvantaged after her 45 years in government?
Where is the condemnation over Maxine Waters' racism?
We are so screwed when you vote color over competence and fail to recognize that those who scream racism the loudest are likely to be racists themselves.
