House Speaker Nancy Pelosi defended the call to “stay in the streets” of the country if police officer Derek Chauvin, charged in the death of drug addict George Floyd last year, was acquitted of first-degree murder.
Pelosi did not call for conciliation and calm to maintain order and social stability, despite the violent and destructive consequences resulting from the incendiary words of Democratic Representative Maxine Waters, who incited her followers on April 17.
In contrast, California Democrat Pelosi not only exonerated Waters from apologizing but praised her behavior, according to the April 19 Daily Caller.
Waters encouraged protesters to step up their actions, saying, “We’ve got to stay in the street, and we’ve got to get more active, we’ve got to get more confrontational,” adding, “We’ve got to make sure they know that we mean business.”
Yesterday, the violence of the riots that had already caused fires the previous week increased, and at least one church was set on fire in Minneapolis. Disclose.tv provided a video of the event.

As if Waters’ and Pelosi’s words were not enough, they were joined by the Democratic mayor of Minneapolis, Jacob Frey, as he spoke of the anticipation created by the verdict in the Chauvin trial.
His attitude was impetuous as he used words like pain, anger, anguish, and frustration adding words that could even affect the trial’s outcome.
“Regardless of the decision made by the jury, there is one true reality, which is that George Floyd was killed at the hands of police,” Frey emphasized, as seen in the video contributed by author and veteran Jack Posobiec.

Against this explosive backdrop, Chauvin’s defense attorney, Eric Nelson, expressed concern about the effect Waters’ threatening words might have on the jury.
Echoing Nelson’s concerns, Judge Peter A. Cahill granted Nelson the option of using Waters’ reckless interference as a valid argument to seek reversal of any guilty conviction on appeal.
“I will give you that Congresswoman Waters may have given you something on appeal that may result in this whole trial being overturned,” said Cahill, who had previously called Waters’ interventions at least “disrespectful.”
This whole sorry process, which began in May with Floyd’s death in police custody, has caused a lot of pain, the death of many people, and the destruction of thousands of properties in many U.S. cities.
Likewise, the Marxist groups Black Lives Matter (BLM) and Antifa led the destruction of the multiple riots organized for political purposes, under the complacent gaze of the Democrats who ignored them most of the time, criticizing that such violence was just “an idea.”
Moreover, the violent and destructive behavior of the Marxists was extolled by the then-vice presidential candidate, Kamala Harris, who promised that this antisocial tendency would continue and be promoted even after the elections.
From this approach, it appears that the interference by leftist Democrats Waters, Pelosi, and Frey is nothing more than the continuation of that threatening and dark agenda expressed by Harris.
