(RightIsRight.co) – Democrats love to call out Republicans for inciting violence or using phrases deemed not politically correct by their standards. However, when one of their own steps over the line of proper, healthy, political speech, they remain silent. This week, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) fought to censure one such Democrat after she incited violence over the weekend.
Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) attended a rally this weekend in Minneapolis, Minnesota. When speaking with reporters, Waters said the crowds should “get more confrontational” and encouraged them to “stay on the street,” despite the fact they were already breaking the city-wide curfew. These words came as the nation awaited a verdict in the trial of police officer Derek Chauvin, who was convicted of killing George Floyd last May.
On Monday, April 19, the Republican House Leader shared his efforts to address the incident:
This weekend in Minnesota, Maxine Waters broke the law by violating curfew and then incited violence.
Speaker Pelosi is ignoring Waters’ behavior—that’s why I am introducing a resolution to censure Rep. Waters for these dangerous comments.
— Kevin McCarthy (@GOPLeader) April 19, 2021
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) defended Waters’ words on Monday, however, the GOP still moved forward with the resolution to censure the California representative for her “dangerous comments.” Democrats eventually blocked the resolution, but it hopefully will give the Left a clear picture of how we all must use our words responsibly, especially for high-ranking politicians whose words carry a lot of weight.
