Newt Gingrich Rips Maxine Waters For ‘Openly Encouraging Violence’ In Minnesota  BY LIFEZETTE  APRIL 19, 2021

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich went on Fox News on Monday morning to blast Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) for recently calling for protesters to “get more confrontational” as the trial of Derek Chauvin for the death of George Floyd continues.

Gingrich pointed out that Waters is “openly encouraging violence” as he also called for a “nationwide movement” to put a stop to looting and violence in the streets under the guise of protesting.
Gingrich Sounds Off

“[T]he more patient we are, the more radical they are,” Gingrich said. “So, you have over a year of violence in Portland, Oregon. You have an expectation of violence. Why should we expect violence if the criminal justice system works? Why should we tolerate violence? Why should we tolerate National Guardsmen being shot at?”

“I think we have to really rethink our whole approach to making sure we stop people from being violent if necessary by doing the opposite of what Rashida Tlaib wanted and actually increasing the prisons,” he continued. “You cannot have a country which cowers in fear and which has radicals who wander around openly encouraging violence.”

‘We Are Going To Protect Our Property’

“I think it’s going to require a nationwide movement that says we are going to protect our people,” Gingrich continued. “We are going to protect our property. We are not going to tolerate criminals in the street. You know, when somebody is out looting, that’s not a protest, that’s a criminal. And they should be treated as criminals.”
