Just when you think you have heard all the dumb things you are going to hear from Democrats in a given week you realize one very important thing. You have not heard Rep. Maxine Waters speak yet.
Ah but alas, we did hear her speak on Saturday and, as is usual for her, she said something ridiculous and she hatched a new conspiracy theory about the incident at the Capitol on January 6 that Democrats want to paint as the opening battle in some new Revolutionary War happening only in their minds.
Fortunately for Waters, she was not doing an interview with a respected a credible journalist who would have pressed her to provide proof, but rather professional provocateur Jim Acosta on CNN.
“One of the things we know is we need a commission, and they are opposing a commission to find out who all was involved,” she said of Republicans. “Where did the money come from to send busloads of people in? Who supported them in all of this? Where was the organizing taking place?”
“I’m told there was organizing taking place right in the Trump campaign,” she said,. Sans providing a single shred of evidence to support that outrageous claim, nor did she face a follow up on it from Acosta.
“And so, if they are really concerned about why our Capitol was invaded and why there was an insurrection, they would support a commission to find out. But they don’t want to know because too many of them side with them and support what they have done, and they are not going to call them to task for it,” she said.
Of course, the Democrat effort to form a commission to investigate the incident were killed the first time but Waters wants to keep pushing on. She called the people at the Capitol that day “domestic terrorists” as Democrats continue to attempt to paint the incident as a terrorist attack.
And Waters is far from an innocent. It was just months ago that she made comments that many people interpreted as a call to violence that actually caused a judge to scold her.
After the prosecution and defense gave their closing arguments in the case on the death of George Floyd, the judge in the case said that Rep. Waters comments made the weekend of the case could be cause for an appeal if Chauvin is convicted, The New York Times reported.
“An elected official, a United States congressperson, was making what I interpreted to be — what I think are reasonably interpreted to be — threats against the sanctity of the jury process,” Chauvin’ attorney, Eric J. Nelson, said.
Judge Peter A. Cahill absolutely scorched Rep. Waters in his response, in which he declined to declare a mistrial in the case.
“I’ll give you that Congresswoman Waters may have given you something on appeal that may result in this whole trial being overturned,” the judge said.
“I wish elected officials would stop talking about this case, especially in a manner that’s disrespectful to the rule of law and to the judicial branch and our function,” he said, adding that it is disrespectful the “coequal branches of government.”
“Their failure to do so is abhorrent,” he said.
His comments came on Monday, after the comments by Waters were heard at a protest for Floyd and for Daunte Wright, who was also killed in a confrontation with police.
“I hope that we’re going to get a verdict that says guilty guilty guilty,” she “And if we don’t, we cannot go away.”
She made it known that she was referring to a murder conviction and no less than that. When reporters asked what people should do if there was not a guilty verdict she said, “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.”
