Politicians are the clearest form of hypocrites — always have been, always will be. Imagine for a second that you’re a sitting member of Congress and you travel to an area of the country where riots based on false narratives are about to take place. Not only do you not condemn the violence and destruction of the area that was carried for the same reason just a year ago, but you publicly encourage it to continue and possibly become worse. If that weren’t enough, after all of that, it comes out that you requested the police protect you during the same trip in which you called on people to make their jobs more difficult.
If you were to do all of that, you’d reportedly be far-left, octogenarian activist Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.).
It’s now being reported that Waters requested an “armed police escort” to her destination of Minneapolis, the place that Waters essentially told protesters to become violent should the outcome of the trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin not return the maximum verdict possible.
According to a document obtained by Townhall, Waters’ office requested a police detail “In & Out” of Minneapolis.
Ironically, Waters comments while she was in Minneapolis came during an anti-law enforcement protest.
During said protest, when asked what protesters should do if they don’t get their desired outcome in the Chauvin trial, Waters told onlookers what should happen and even counted herself among them by using the word “we.”
“We’ve got to stay on the street, and we’ve got to get more active and get more confrontational,” Waters said in comments captured on video. “They’ve got to know that we mean business.”
Waters has a pattern of calling for harassment of and violence against political opponents, especially during former President Donald Trump’s administration.
In 2018, Waters told a group of her supporters that they should “push back” against and harass anyone associated with the Trump administration.
“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” Waters yelled. “We’ve got to get the children connected to their parents.”
One has to wonder how many times Waters has to incite her supporters to action against a city, government officials, political opponents or people she deems less desirable before the FBI drops its bias and looks into her acts that could be construed as sedition.
