Congresswoman Waters Inciting Violence

Over the weekend, Democrat Congresswoman Maxine Waters flew to Minneapolis, where she called for violent activists to "stay in the streets" until we get a "guilty verdict" in the George Floyd case.

Ironically she officially requested an armed police escort to Minneapolis while she was there calling for, among other things, "defunding the police."

Republican House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says if Pelosi doesn't take corrective action in Congress, he will.

A university theology professor has published a prayer, asking, "Dear God, please help me to hate White people. I want to stop caring about them, individually and collectively."

God help us.

Be informed, not misled.


Documents obtained by Townhall show that Democrat Congresswoman Maxine Waters requested an armed police escort to Minneapolis over the weekend, where she called for violent activists to "stay in the streets" during a protest against law enforcement.

That night, Waters went to meet with protesters and demanded a guilty verdict for Chauvin---the police officer charged in the death of George Floyd---"or else."

Waters told the mob that is daily burning and looting in the name of justice, "We need to stay in the streets, and if nothing happens, we need to not only stay in the streets, but we have to fight for justice."

Continuing, she said, "I am very hopeful, and I hope that we are going to get a verdict that is guilty, guilty, guilty, and if we don't, we cannot go away."

Chauvin has not been charged with 1st-degree murder. What if the jury does not convict because they conclude the burden for 2nd or 3rd-degree murder was not met in the trial?

Waters is setting the standard and calling for confrontation if it isn't met.

Does she really want justice or revenge? 

If it isn't justice, should an elected official be allowed to use her position to incite violence and riot in our cities?

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says, "If Pelosi doesn't take action against Waters, he will."

In a statement yesterday, McCarthy vowed to take matters into his own hands if Pelosi doesn't take action. 

He said, "Maxine Waters is inciting violence in Minneapolis---just like she has incited it in the past."

The Patriot Post noted yesterday just how far in the past she has been doing this.

In supporting the second impeachment of President Donald Trump, Waters said she was "inciting" his followers and was "trying to create a civil war."

Many of us recall it was Waters who was calling for her followers to "harass and intimidate members of Trump's cabinet---saying, 

"Let's make sure we show up wherever we have to show up", she told a crowd, "And if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them And you tell them they're not welcome anymore, anywhere."

Justice or revenge?

A Mercer University theology professor, Chanequa Walker-Barnes, wrote a prayer in which she asks God to "help her hate White people, specifically the nice ones."

She's published it. It's titled the "Prayer of a Weary Black Woman" in a book titled "A Rhythm of Prayer: A Collection of Meditations for Renewal."

How does asking God to help you hate white people bring about "renewal?" I don't know. I doubt she does either.

Her prayer continues: "I want to stop caring about them, individually and collectively. I want to stop caring about their misguided, racist souls, to stop believing that they can be better, that they can stop being racist."

Her "prayer" is thoughtful. She explains to God that "I am not talking about the White anti-racist allies who have taken up the struggle against racism with their whole lives," nor is she referring to "the ardent racists" who "plot acts of racial terrorism hoping to start a race war."

"My prayer is that you would help me to hate the other White people---you know, the nice ones who don't see color... but who make thinly veiled racist comments about 'those people'," she says.

And the theology professor says, "Lord, if you can't make me hate them, at least spare me from their perennial gaslighting, white mansplaining, and White woman tears."

Who are these people?

Walker-Barnes describes them:

The people who are happy to have me over for dinner but alert the neighborhood watch anytime an unrecognized person of color passes their house. The people who welcome Black people in their churches and small groups but brand us as heretics if we suggest that Christianity is concerned with the poor and the oppressed. The people who politely tell us that we can leave when we call out their moral microaggressions we experience in their ministries."

"But since I don't have many relationships with people like that," she says, "perhaps they are not a good use of hatred either."

Instead, she asks God to help her "hate the White people who claim the progressive label but who are really wolves in sheep's clothing."

And, her prayer to God concludes: "Grant me a Get Out of Judgement Free Card if I make White people the exception to your commandment to love our neighbors as we love ourselves."


There is no question the professor loves herself but does not love others in the same way. I suspect God already knew that. But now we know it.

The Prophet Zephaniah is not quoted as often as other prophets, but his words came to mind as I looked and listened to the ranting of Representative Maxine Waters and the mockery of theology Professor Walker-Barnes.

In chapter 3:1-5, the prophet describes the "wickedness in Jerusalem:

"Woe to her who is rebellious and polluted. She has not obeyed His voice, She has not received correction, She has not trusted in the Lord, She has not drawn near to her God. Her princes in her midst are roaring lions, her judges are evening wolves that leave not a bone till morning, Her prophets are insolent, treacherous people, her priests have polluted the sanctuary. They have done violence to the law, The Lord is righteous in her midst, He will do no unrighteousness. Every morning He brings His justice to light; He never fails, But the unjust knows no shame."

Zephaniah's culture was one of rampant lawlessness, profaned worship, deceitful prophets, and virtually extinct religious convictions among the public.

He was an on-fire, faithful evangelist with a burning message that always concluded that repentance was the only path to restoration---and in the end, the chaos and affliction gave way to salvation and praise, not mockery to the lord.

There is nothing I could possibly add to that.

Be Informed. Be Discerning. Be Vigilant. Be Prayerful.
