This Georgia representative used to stalk high school gun shooting victims and tell them she had a big gun. Clearly, Representative Majorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) gets into trouble when she is bored. Her participation on committees was rescinded for “her history of trafficking in racism, anti-Semitism and baseless conspiracy theories, along with her support for online comments encouraging violence against Democratic officials prior to taking office,” NPR reported. What did she do this time?
Taylor Greene started off her Sunday by calling for Representative Maxine Waters’ (D-CA) expulsion from Congress. The outspoken California lawmanker joined the Minnesota protesters and told them that they had a choice should Derek Chauvin not be convicted of murdering George Floyd. They could either “get more confrontational” or give up their effort, according to Fox News.
Chauvin placed his knee and often his full weight on Floyd’s neck for nine and one-half minutes after the man apparently unknowingly gave a store clerk a fake $20 bill. Two other police officers also used their own bodies to hold down the handcuffed man who called out “I can’t breathe,” and as he drew nearer death, “Mama! Mama!”
Fox News indicated that Waters went to be “Auntie Maxine” and support young people protesting:
“‘We have to give support to our young people who are struggling and trying to make this justice system work for everybody. They see their peers being killed. Minneapolis is a great example of what’s wrong with the criminal justice system, what’s wrong with policing. I wanted to be there as auntie Maxine to show them, not only do I love them and support them, but they can count on me to be with them at this terrible time in all of our lives.’
Taylor Greene released a statement accusing Waters of:
‘[Inciting] Black Lives Matter domestic terrorists to fire gunshots at National Guardsmen in Minnesota.’
The Georgia representative’s statement continued:
‘I’ll be introducing a resolution to expel Rep. Maxine Waters from Congress for her continual incitement of violence.’
Waters spoke to reporters this weekend, saying:
‘We’ve got to stay on the street and 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. [I am] hopeful [Chauvin is convicted of murder but if not] we cannot go away.’
Ever the rabble-rouser, Taylor Greene called Waters “a danger to our society,” then added the longtime Congresswoman was “traveling across state lines to incite riots:”
‘Her orders recorded on video last night at the Brooklyn Center, directly led to more violence and a drive-by shooting on National Guardsmen in Minnesota early this morning. As a sitting United States Congresswoman, Rep. Maxine Waters threatened a jury demanding a guilty verdict and threatened violence if Chauvin is found not guilty. This is also an abuse of power. Rep. Maxine Waters must be expelled from Congress!’
Another Republican legislator Representative Andy Biggs (R-AZ) added his voice to Taylor Greene’s:
‘The Radical Left don’t care if your towns are burning, if there’s violence in your streets, or if the police are too defunded to defend their communities. As long as the Left appeases their anti-America base, their job is done.’
The National Republican Congressional Committee (RNCC) spokesperson Mike Berg said on Fox News:
‘Telling rioters who have burned buildings, looted stores, and assaulted journalists to get ‘more confrontational’ is incredibly irresponsible. Every House Democrat should condemn Maxine Waters’ call for violence.’
The gun-toting representative from Colorado Lauren Boebert (R-CO) tweeted:
“Why is Maxine Waters traveling to a different state trying to incite a riot? What good can come from this?’
Waters remained in Minnesota over the weekend and would stay through the closing arguments, according to The New York Times reporter Nicholas Bogel-Burroughs reported.
FOX 9 in Minneapolis reported Waters responding to the accusations:
‘The way to get in control is not to allow them to win. You’ve got to register and you’ve got to vote and you’ve got to take the power.’
