Pelosi Stands With Maxine Waters, Who Called for Violence

( – This past weekend, Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) rallied with protesters in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Rather than simply having solidarity with her peers, though, Waters made cries for the crowd to “get more confrontational” as the nation awaits a verdict on the trial of Derek Chauvin, the police officer who pleaded not guilty to killing George Floyd last May. But, many GOP lawmakers quickly called Waters out on her words, noting that they could incite violence.

On Monday, April 19, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) defended Maxine Waters, saying that her speech was made “in the manner of the civil rights movement” and that it could “absolutely not” incite violence.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) spoke with Fox News about the top Democrat’s hypocrisy:

Every single member of Congress knows they’re leaders in our nation and that their words carry weight. How Pelosi can defend Waters after repeatedly accusing former President Donald Trump of inciting violence on January 6 is unconscionable. Perhaps before accusing others of inciting violence, Pelosi should take a look at her own party first.
