Asked Monday on CNN if Rep. Maxine Waters should apologize for urging protesters to “get more confrontational” if former police officer Derek Chauvin is cleared in George Floyd’s death, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said, “Absolutely not.”
“Maxine talked about confrontation in the manner of the Civil Rights movement,” Pelosi claimed. “I myself think we should take our lead from the George Floyd family. They’ve handled this with great dignity and no ambiguity or lack of misinterpretation by the other side.”
“No, no, I don’t think she should apologize,” Pelosi added about Waters. Asked if Waters’ remarks will incite violence, the speaker replied, “Absolutely not.”
When former President Donald Trump urged Capitol Hill demonstrators on January 6 to protest peacefully but to fight for election justice, Pelosi led a partisan impeachment against him for “inciting insurrection.” But when Maxine Waters demands that the Chauvin jury find him “guilty, guilty, guilty,” or else protesters — already fired up to burn cities down — should “take to the streets” and “get confrontational,” Pelosi calls it the language of the civil rights movement.
Hypocrisy, thy name is Democrat.
