Kevin McCarthy, Others Slam Maxine Waters For Riot Remarks
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), lawmakers from both sides, and the media are railing against Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA). He demanded that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) take action against irresponsible comments made by Waters over the weekend. If Pelosi won’t, McCarthy threatened he would do it himself.

Rep. Maxine Waters’ Comments
Waters attended a Brooklyn Center, Minnesota protest last Saturday. The venue is where local police shot and killed 20-year-old Daunte Wright during a traffic stop incident last April 11.
In addition, activists are on edge as they await the results of the trial of Derek Chauvin. Chauvin is the police officer involved in the death of George Floyd, who dies while under police custody in view of the public. Consequently, Floyd’s death led to protests under the Black Lives Matter movement.
Waters told the crowd to stand by for the trial’s verdict. “We’re looking for a guilty verdict. We’re looking for a guilty verdict.
And we’re looking to see if all of this [inaudible] that took place and has been taking place after they saw what happened to George Floyd. If nothing does happen, then we know, that we’ve got to not only stay in the street, but we’ve got to fight for justice, but I am very hopeful and I hope that we’re going to get a verdict that will say guilty, guilty, guilty. And if we don’t, we cannot go away,” she told the crowd.
When asked about what should they do if Chauvin receives a “not guilty” verdict, Waters told the crowd to remain on the streets. “We’ve got to get more active,” she said. In addition, Waters told the crowd “to get more confrontational. [We’ve] got to make sure that they know we mean business.”
McCarthy Says Waters Is Inciting Violence
McCarthy demanded on Sunday that Pelosi address comments made by Waters over the weekend. “Maxine Waters is inciting violence in Minneapolis, just as she has incited it in the past. If Speaker Pelosi doesn’t act against this dangerous rhetoric, I will bring action this week,” the lawmaker said in a statement.
In addition, other politicians and some media members also condemned Water’s statement. The New York Post Editorial Board called out the California representative.
They said Waters was “trying to create a Civil War” and urged that Pelosi “should strip her of her committee assignments and move for a vote to remove Waters from office.”
Others Join The Call-In Slamming Maxine Waters
Other notable officials and political commentators from both sides of the aisle also gave their opinion on what Waters said. Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz remarked that “Democrats actively encouraging riots & violence. They want to tear us apart.”
Podcast host Matt Walsh said Waters might be trying to influence the trial. “Maxine Waters is trying to intimidate a jury to influence the outcome of a murder trial.
Every elected Republican in the country should be calling for her immediate arrest and removal from congress,” he insisted.
Another podcast host, Steven Crowder, said that if Twitter and Facebook banned former president Donald Trump’s accounts for inciting violence, then Waters should be federally charged and impeached. Also, fellow host Gerry Callahan agrees, noting that Trump got banned for less.
Meanwhile, Democrat Bryan Dean Wright, a former CIA officer, opined that Waters is a threat to the Republic, while attorney and columnist Kurt Schlichter said Water’s actions are a form of insurrection.
Taylor-Greene Joins The Fray
Meanwhile, Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R) announced Sunday that she will introduce a resolution to expel Democratic Representative Maxine Waters. In her statement, Green said that she will introduce a resolution “to expel Rep. Maxine Waters from Congress for her continual incitement of violence.”
Greene, herself a target of expulsion from some Democratic members of Congress, had her committee positions stripped after previously endorsing violence against Democratic politicians. She also espoused QAnon conspiracy theories and other dogma.

This is an act of incitement Impeach her ass
Waters is inciting violence and racism. That and she’s too disgusting to look at are enough reason to drain the swamp of her. It’s an insult to her constituents that they elected her.
She should be drawn and quartered in a public square. The only thing these animals understand is violence!
Impeach! Impeach! Impeach the black racist mf’er 🤜🤛
This bitch should be taken to a prison cell and handled appropriately!
Nothing will happen to Waters, she is a Demarcate like the rest of the bully demarcates. They are in charge. God help this country.
She is a treasonous bitch like the rest of her left brother in and it should be lined up and shot because unfortunately that’s probably the only way we’re going to get rid of them

TLO, you are absolutely right.
I get sick to my stomach with the idea that someone gave her a microphone to spew her race hatred. She has been inciting riots since 1982. She has become very rich on the public’s money. She has been very corrupt in that she paid her daughter exorbitant amounts of money for working on her campaign. Not much else to say-very frightening that some people in congress would actually listen to her!! She has got to go!!
This Terrible Black person has been getting away with talk like this for 5 1/2 years and the Democrats let their fellow Rats get away with it
She’s been No Good from the beginning
She makes me sick to my stomach. Has overseas bank accounts with her husband handling it is how she gets her money. Needs to be investigated. She has been citing riots for too long now. Needs to be charged & kicked out of office.
Looks like a gorilla
