Many Republicans are behind efforts to expel Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif. after telling protesters in Minnesota to “get more confrontational” during protests this weekend.

Waters visited Brooklyn Center, where Daunte Wright was shot, just miles from Derek Chauvin’s trial.  Waters told reporters that if the former police officer is not found guilty for the murder of George Floyd, rioters will need to show the city they mean business.

“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.”

Following those words, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., announced she is looking to expel Waters from Congress.

“I’ll be introducing a resolution to expel Rep. Maxine Waters from Congress for her continual incitement of violence.”

The National Republican Congressional Committee Spokesman, Mike Berg told Fox News that the party stands behind the notion.

“Telling rioters who have burned buildings, looted stores, and assaulted journalists to get ‘more confrontational’ is incredibly irresponsible. Every House Democrat should condemn Maxine Waters’ call for violence.”

Other Congressional members voiced their support on twitter.



Tony Katz says Waters should be held accountable of citing insurrection just as they claim they did for Trump during the Capitol attack.

“Well I’m asking now if we are going to hold the same standard for Rep. Maxine Waters because if we are, she must be expelled from the House of Representatives.”

This isn’t the first time Waters has encouraged violence. In 2018, she told the public to push back and “create a crowd” if they see members of Trump’s staff out and about.
