Things are getting interesting in the Democrat party lately and I am ready to make an extra-large jumbo-sized popcorn to watch this show.
Over the last couple of days, Maxine Waters has been in extra rare form over the high-profile George Floyd case with her comments. The comments that Waters has made have even drawn the ire of the judge presiding over the case going as far as to issue a warning that her actions could result in a mistrial. Now there is a growing number of congressional Democrats who are so irate with Maxine Waters for inciting violence in Minneapolis that they are supporting joining Republicans and censuring her which will result in her dismissal as chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee.
Ouch, that has to hurt.
Over the weekend while on the ground in Brooklyn Center, Minneapolis, Waters encourages Democrats to get “confrontational” and to “make sure that they know we mean business.”
“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,” Waters said. “If nothing does not 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 hopefully 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.”
If Derek Chauvin isn’t convicted, Waters told her supporters to “stay on the street.”
“And we’ve got to get more active. [We’ve] got to get more confrontational,” she said. “[We’ve] got to make sure that they know we mean business.”
Fox News reporter Chad Pergram explained that Democrats’ anger towards Waters “metastasized” after Judge Peter Cahill of the death of George Floyd trial, spoke out against Waters on live television, stating that she may have caused a mistrial.
“Some Democrats conceded privately they are not pleased with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) saying that Waters shouldn’t apologize,” Pergram reported. “Fox is told that a lot of Democrats are angry at Waters, are concerned about the optics of potential violence being linked back to her and Democrats generally.”
Check out what the Daily Wire reported:
Pergram noted that moderate Democrats were damaged during the election after far-left members of the party pushed the “defund the police” movement. The reason those Democrats are reportedly mad at Waters doesn’t appear to be based on any kind of moral conundrum they have with what she said, but rather because they are “concerned about the optics of potential violence being linked back to her and Democrats generally.”
Pergram noted that Democrats’ majority is so slim right now that they can only afford to lose two votes on their side. “One knowledgeable Democrat told Fox that some Democratic members are so angry at Waters now that they would relish the opportunity to censure her,” Pergram concluded. “So, McCarthy’s censure resolution may actually have legs.”
On Sunday, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy vowed to take action against Waters if Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi failed to do so.
