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?
‘The Purge’ by Big Tech targets conservatives, including us
Just when we thought the Covid-19 lockdowns were ending and our ability to stay afloat was improving, censorship reared its ugly head.
For the last few months, NOQ Report has appealed to our readers for assistance in staying afloat through Covid-19 lockdowns. The downturn in the economy has limited our ability to generate proper ad revenue just as our traffic was skyrocketing. We had our first sustained stretch of three months with over a million visitors in November, December, and January, but February saw a dip.
It wasn’t just the shortened month. We expected that. We also expected the continuation of dropping traffic from “woke” Big Tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, but it has actually been much worse than anticipated. Our Twitter account was banned. One of our YouTube accounts was banned and another has been suspended. Facebook “fact-checks” everything we post. Spotify canceled us. Why? Because we believe in the truth prevailing, and that means we will continue to discuss “taboo” topics.
The 2020 presidential election was stolen. You can’t say that on Big Tech platforms without risking cancelation, but we’d rather get cancelled for telling the truth rather than staying around to repeat mainstream media’s lies. They have been covering it up since before the election and they’ve convinced the vast majority of conservative news outlets that they will be harmed if they continue to discuss voter fraud. We refuse to back down. The truth is the truth.
The lies associated with Covid-19 are only slightly more prevalent than the suppression of valid scientific information that runs counter to the prescribed narrative. We should be allowed to ask questions about the vaccines, for example, as there is ample evidence for concern. One does not have to be an “anti-vaxxer” in order to want answers about vaccines that are still considered experimental and that have a track record in a short period of time of having side-effects. These questions are not allowed on Big Tech which is just another reason we are getting cancelled.
There are more topics that they refuse to allow. In turn, we refuse to stop discussing them. This is why we desperately need your help. The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We are on track to be short by about $5300 per month in order to maintain operations.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. We had 5,657,724 sessions on our website from November, 2020, through February, 2021. Our intention is to elevate that to higher levels this year by focusing on a strategy that relies on free speech rather than being beholden to progressive Big Tech companies.
During that four-month stretch, Twitter and Facebook accounted for about 20% of our traffic. We are actively working on operating as if that traffic is zero, replacing it with platforms that operate more freely such as Gab, Parler, and others. While we were never as dependent on Big Tech as most conservative sites, we’d like to be completely free from them. That doesn’t mean we will block them, but we refuse to be beholden to companies that absolutely despise us simply because of our political ideology.
We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
