Lawmakers in Minnesota want to pass a bill that would disqualify convicted protesters from being able to receive federal aid, according to The Blaze.
A bit of the legislation reads, “A person convicted of a criminal offense related to the person’s illegal conduct at a protest, demonstration, rally, civil unrest, or march is ineligible for any type of state loan, grant, or assistance, including but not limited to college student loans and grants, rent and mortgage assistance, supplemental nutrition assistance, unemployment benefits and other employment assistance, Minnesota supplemental aid programs, business grants, medical assistance, general assistance, and energy assistance.”
Maxine Waters made controversial remarks at a gathering where she got very close to crossing lines of inciting harmful protests.
Waters said, “We got to stay on the street. And we’ve got to get more active. You’ve got to get more confrontational. You got to make sure that they know we mean business.”
Judge Peter Cahill said, “A congresswoman’s opinion really doesn’t matter a whole lot. Anyway.”
