In a Monday interview, just two days after her notorious announcement, Maxine said that she was actually trying to send a message to white supremacists.
“I am nonviolent,” Waters told The Grio on Monday, right after she was roughly accused by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) of condoning political violence with her statement that the supporters of the radical BLM movement should be “more confrontational.”
“Republicans will jump on any word, any line and try to make it fit their message and their cause for denouncing us and denying us, basically calling us violent … any time they see an opportunity to seize on a word, so they do it and they send a message to all of the white supremacists, the KKK, the Oath Keepers, the Proud Boys and all of that, how this is a time for Republicans to raise money on Democrats’ backs,” Waters said.
She continued stating that she is “not worried that they’re going to continue to distort what I say.”
“This is who they are and this is how they act,” she said. “And I’m not going to be bullied by them.”
While in Minnesota over the weekend, Waters was asked by reporters about the trial of Derek Chauvin, a former Minneapolis police officer facing murder charges in the killing of George Floyd last May. A verdict in the case is expected in the coming days.
“We’ve got to get more confrontational,” Waters told reporters according to Fox News. “We’ve got to make sure that they know that we mean business.”
And McCarthy stated that she was endorsing political violence.
"I'm not happy that we have talked about police reform for so long…I confronted the police chief…in Los Angeles years ago about the killing of Eula Love…I would like to see the Bill in Congress pass on police reform."–Rep. Maxine Waters attends #DaunteWright Protest. pic.twitter.com/4Hp8tAx7Tj

“Maxine Waters is inciting violence in Minneapolis — just as she has incited it in the past,” McCarthy said in a tweet. “If Speaker Pelosi doesn’t act against this dangerous rhetoric, I will bring action this week.”
He continued saying how MTG announced plans to introduce a resolution with a single goal – expelling Maxine out of the Congress.
