Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene has asked Nancy Pelosi to resign because she said Maxine Waters does not need to apologize for allegedly inciting violence. Greene has demanded that 81-year-old House Speaker should retire while Waters should be expelled from Congress. Taking to Twitter, the 46-year-old far-right conspiracy theorist, shared, “@SpeakerPelosi just endorsed @MaxineWaters ’ orders to her BLM terrorist troops that directly led to a shooting at the National Guard. She endorsed inciting violence, rioting, mayhem in the streets, and Americans being murdered like David Dorn #RetirePelosi #ExpelMaxineWaters.”

According to reports, Waters was speaking to a group of protesters in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, days after Daunte Wright’s death when she said, “We've got to make sure that they know we mean business.” In her speech, she was referring to Derek Chauvin’s murder trial who has been charged with the May 25, 2020 death of a Black man, Geroge Floyd. The 82-year-old told the crowd they required to "stay on the streets" if the former Minneapolis police officer is not convicted and get “more active” and “more confrontational.”

Later, when Pelosi was asked if Waters should apologize, she stated, “No, she doesn't.” She added, “Maxine talked about confrontation in the manner of the civil rights movement. 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, I don't think she should apologize.”

Several other Republicans also accused Waters of wrongdoing as Michigan Representative Lisa McClain said on the House floor on Monday, April 19, that Waters, the representative for California's 43rd congressional district, had openly called “for more confrontation in a Minneapolis suburb.”

“That very night, there was a drive-by shooting in that community where police and the National Guardsmen were targeted. If this were reversed, if this was said by a Republican, you know that the majority in this chamber would move to strip that representative of their committees and possibly to expel them from Congress,”  McClain added. Meanwhile, people on Twitter slammed Greene for her hypocrisy as one user said, “where was this energy when them krakkk3rs attacked the united states capitol. shut up and write a law stopping police unions from getting officers acquitted of murder.”

Another user tweeted, “Will you be offering a resolution on this soon? Thank God!  When you speak, most Americans look elsewhere for the truth!  Listen to the statement in its entirety!  Listen to Rep Waters explanation!  It’s not like she encouraged anyone to put a execution bullet in someone’s head!”

“With that train of thought you have several GOP members of Congress who should resign.  All spoke of violence regarding their failure to accept the election.  So sit down!” the third stated while another one added, “I'd like to know what Legislation are you actually working on to benefit the constituents of your District, or ANY average American. Including those that aren't Anglo-Saxon? You know, jobs, health-care, education, etc. Dinner table and wallet issues.” “You’re literally a domestic terrorist. Go ahead and stir up your base and con them out of money because you’re going to need it for legal fees,” a person noted.
