House Republicans on Tuesday forced a vote to censure Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) for calling on protesters to “get more confrontational” if former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin were he to have been acquitted of murder charges in the killing of George Floyd. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) introduced the privileged censure resolution, forcing the vote on the floor. The motion to censure was ultimately defeated in a party line vote 216-210, with Democrats defending Waters’ inflammatory comments. Dems prove that they will side in unison with wrong.
“This weekend in Minnesota, Maxine Waters broke the law by violating curfew and then incited violence. Speaker Pelosi is ignoring Waters’ behavior—that’s why I am introducing a resolution to censure Rep. Waters for these dangerous comments,” McCarthy tweeted on Monday. Waters called for protesters to “get more active” in Brooklyn Center, Minn., for a protest against police brutality on Saturday evening.
“We’re looking for a guilty verdict and we’re looking to see if all of the talk that took place and has been taking place after they saw what happened to George Floyd. If nothing does not happen, then we know that we got to not only stay in the street, but we have got to fight for justice,” she said, according to videos posted to social media.
