Marjorie Taylor Greene Announces Plans to Expel Maxine Waters from Congress
'Rep. Waters is a danger to our society'
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has announced she plans to introduce a resolution to expel far-left Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters for “inciting Black Lives Matter violence.”
Greene responded to Waters’ recent appearance at a rally in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, where she joined demonstrators angry at the shooting of Daunte Wright by police earlier this month.
As Neon Nettle reported, Waters triggered outrage after video footage emerged online over the weekend showing the congresswoman telling Black Lives Matter rioters to "get more confrontational."
Waters told the protesters at Brooklyn Center "to get more confrontational" while encouraging rioters to ignore the curfew - just one day after protests descended into violence and looting.
"I am not happy that we have talked about police reform for so long," Waters said.
"We gotta stay on the street," Waters was recorded saying, adding that activists need to be "more confrontational" and they should break the curfew put in place to quell the violence.

Just hours later, two members of the Minnesota National Guard patrolling a local neighborhood were lightly injured in a drive-by shooting.
Rep. Greene said Waters’s rhetoric was linked to the event, calling it domestic terrorism.
In a press release, she said:
”I’ll be introducing a resolution to expel Rep. Maxine Waters from Congress for her continual incitement of violence.
"Rep. Waters is a danger to our society.
"After traveling across state lines to incite riots, her orders recorded on video last night at the Brooklyn Center, directly led to more violence and a drive-by shooting on National Guardsmen in Minnesota early this morning.
"As a sitting United States Congresswoman, Rep. Maxine Waters threatened a jury demanding a guilty verdict and threatened violence if Chauvin is found not guilty. This is also an abuse of power.
"Rep. Maxine Waters must be expelled from Congress!”
One person also accused Waters of "stirring people up again with her calls for violence."
Waters is planning on staying in town until Monday.
According to CBS Minnesota, officials stated that there was a brief altercation between reporters and protesters as Waters was leaving on Saturday, the first reports of any skirmishes.
Democrats voted to strip Rep. Greene of her committee memberships earleir this year.
Greene said it was a blessing in disguise because Democrats are ignoring the committee process, bringing legislation straight to the floor and denying Republicans a meaningful role in the shaping of legislation.
