Kevin McCarthy threatens action against Maxine Waters for ‘dangerous rhetoric’

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is demanding House Speaker Nancy Pelosi hold Rep. Maxine Waters accountable for inciting violence in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota after the fatal police shooting of Duante Wright.

On Saturday, Waters spoke to a group of demonstrators in Minnesota one week after Wright was killed.

“I’m going to fight with all of the people who stand for justice,” said Waters. “We’ve got to get justice in this country and we cannot allow these killings to continue.”

“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.”

Since Wright’s death, violence has erupted in Brooklyn Center, Minn., where many protestors have been arrested for rioting and looting.

Waters added that she’s looking for a guilty verdict in the Derek Chauvin trial in Minneapolis. “I hope we’re going to get a verdict that will say guilty, guilty, guilty. And if we don’t, we cannot go away, we’ve got to get more confrontational,” Waters said.

McCarthy warned Pelosi that he will “bring action” against Waters this week if the lawmaker does not receive punishment for engaging in “dangerous rhetoric.”

“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,” McCarthy tweeted Sunday.

Additionally, Several more GOP lawmakers slammed Waters for her comments.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has called for Waters’ expulsion from Congress, saying she is a “danger to our society.”

“After 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,” Green continued.

“As a sitting United States Congresswoman @MaxineWaters threatened a jury demanding a guilty verdict and threatened violence if Chauvin is found not guilty. This is also an abuse of power. #ExpelMaxineWaters.”

Greene organized a petition to expel Waters from her position in Congress, saying that Waters has incited BLM/Antifa violence and riots for years.

“Speaker Pelosi,” Greene tweeted. “You impeached President Trump after you said he incited violence by saying ‘march peacefully’ to the Capitol. So I can expect a yes vote from you on my resolution to expel Maxine Waters for inciting violence, riots, and abusing power threatening a jury, right?”

Uvalde, TX Mayor Calls Beto O’Rourke a ‘Sick Son of a B****’ After he Heckled Gov. Abbott’s Presser

The vile act of politicizing horrific tragedies such as the Uvalde, Texas elementary school massacre, has been in full force. Democrat Beto O’Rourke “was escorted out of Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s press conference Wednesday after he showed up and heckled the governor in the middle of an update on the elementary school massacre in Uvalde” reports The Blaze.

Beto is a former congressman from El Paso, Texas as well as a Democratic presidential nominee briefly for the 2020  elections. During his time, he campaigned hard on his support for a mandatory gun buyback scheme.

The Blaze reported on Beto’s behavior at Abbott’s press conference:

As Abbott was finishing his remarks to reporters, O’Rourke, the Democratic candidate for governor, stood up and began speaking about the need for gun control legislation.

“Excuse me,” Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said as O’Rourke ignored him and went on about how “the time has come to put a stop” to gun violence. O’Rourke did not have a microphone, and most of his comments were inaudible.

“Sit down!” shouted Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) as the Democrat kept speaking.

“You’re out of line and an embarrassment!” Patrick told O’Rourke, while others began raising their voices.

“You are doing nothing!” O’Rourke yelled at Abbott as police officers began to march him out of the room.

“You need to get his a** out of here, this isn’t the place to talk this over,” said Uvalde Mayor Don Mclaughlin, calling O’Rourke a “sick son of a b****.”
