Ms. Waters called on protesters of racial justice to “more conflict” if former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was acquitted of George Floyd’s murder. Republicans have faithfully expressed their anger at the comments, pointing out Mr. Waters’ words as a call to incite violence against police officers by opponents.
