It didn’t take long for someone to heed the recommendations made by Congresswoman Maxine Waters. Hours after she called for more violent protests in Minnesota, Minnesota National Guard and local law enforcement were fired upon.
“A Minnesota National Guard and Minneapolis Police team were fired upon by a light colored SUV early Sunday Morning,” said Lt. Col. Scott Hawks.
The incident followed calls by Waters for protesters in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, to “‘get more confrontational” in their attacks on police and local businesses. According to Zero Hedge:
California Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) flew to Minnesota this weekend, where she joined protesters in Brooklyn Center past curfew and urged them to ‘get more confrontational’ just one day after peaceful demonstrations devolved into violence.
“[Protestors] got to stay on the street and get more active, more confrontational. They’ve got to know that we mean business,” said Waters.
“I am not happy that we have talked about police reform for so long,” she continued, adding “We’re looking for a guilty verdict” in regards to former police officer Derek Chauvin, who is on trial for the death of George Floyd, a black man who died while in police custody last year. “And we’re looking to see if all of the talk that took place and has been taking place after they saw what happened to George Floyd, if nothing does not happen, then we know that we’ve got to not only stay in the street, but we’ve got to fight for justice.”
“If we don’t,” Waters added, “we cannot go away.”
“We gotta stay on the street” Waters was recorded saying, according to the Daily Mail.

Chauvin faces three charges in Floyd’s death; second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter. According to Waters, however, a conviction for manslaughter would not be enough – and the charges should have included first-degree murder.
Waters is essentially calling for protests even if Chauvin is convicted on all charges.

Several protesters were arrested late Saturday following Waters’ comments, after what the Washington Post described as a “volatile skirmish between police and protesters” involving around 100 people.
Sunday morning, shortly after Waters gave her marching orders, a person or people in a light colored SUV attempted a drive-by shooting on the peacekeeping team. National File reports:
Two soldiers with the Minnesota National Guard sustained injuries after someone shot at them early Sunday morning in north Minneapolis just hours after Democrat US Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) urged BLM and ANTIFA rioters to get “more active, more confrontational.”
“A Minnesota National Guard and Minneapolis Police team were fired upon by a light colored SUV early Sunday Morning,” said Lt. Col. Scott Hawks. “Two National Guard members did sustain minor injuries from the incident. One National Guard member was taken to a hospital to receive care for lacerations from shattered glass.”

Waters has built a reputation for violent and hateful rhetoric, particularly towards Republicans. But in recent weeks she has turned her attention on law enforcement as she has fully embraced the Black Lives Matter Neo-Marxist ideology. Words like these are not uncommon from Waters, but it’s conspicuous that she crossed state lines in order to deliver the message.
The area has already been a powder keg for nearly a week following the shooting death of Daunte Wright after he resisted arrest. On top of that, the Derek Chauvin trial is expected to come to a conclusion soon. Some have speculated that regardless of the verdict, Brooklyn Center and cities across the nation will burn.
Someone was trying to do as Maxine Waters asked. Will Democrats call on her to resign for inciting attacks on troops and law enforcement? Should she be charged with a crime for inciting insurrection?
YouTube, Spotify, and other Big Tech platforms are taking Freedom First Network down
It’s no secret we speak our minds and bring on guests who do the same. That’s one of the biggest reasons we put together the Freedom First Network in the first place. There are far too many news outlets, including so-called “conservative” media companies, who are so beholden to Big Tech that they temper their perspectives at best and outright coverup the truth at worst. Many, as you all know, will blatantly lie in order to maintain the narrative that supports the radical agenda taking over much of the United States.
We have had our YouTube channel taken down. Many of our shows have been suppressed or removed by Facebook and Twitter. Spotify banned one of our shows completely from their platform. Google hates us. We’ve even been censored by some of the smaller players like Medium, Transistor, and Captivate. But we stand behind our reporting and perspectives and we refuse to bow down to Big Tech tyranny for the sake of pageviews or video plays.
This isn’t the easiest road to travel, especially for a media company that is so new. We launched Freedom First Network in 2020 to fight against the very censorship that we’re seeing so widespread today. We have found great homes for our content on freer speech platforms like Rumble and we’re putting our best efforts forward into building our presence on Locals. Nevertheless, we cannot do it alone. We need help.
One of the things cofounders Jeff Dornik and JD Rucker agreed to from the start was to never be the pawns of companies that do not embrace our worldview. Finding advertisers and affiliates is easy; we receive requests by companies wanting to be pushed on our shows every day. But it’s important to us that we’re promoting companies, services, and products that are beneficial to maintaining a Freedom First stance in America. As a result, we do not take on sponsors easily. We would rather rely on our own products like Freedom First Coffee and the support of our wonderful viewers, listeners, and readers.
Those who want to support us and help keep the fight for America’s future moving forward can do so by donating through our Locals page. There, you can donate monthly or one-time. Some have told us to use Patreon or GoFundMe, but both of those platforms have demonstrated a hatred for free speech. Locals does not. They embrace it. We encourage everyone to join us on Locals, but donations are greatly appreciated as well. We do not have day jobs. Our fight for freedom is a full-time gig.
Please feel free to reach out to us through our contact form. It goes directly to our founders, so if you’re interested in getting involved, investing, sponsoring, or even bringing a show to our network, let us know. May God Bless the United States of America!
