So it isn’t the socialists, anarchists, neo-Nazis, and anti-semitic Jew hating protesters that are causing occupy protest violence according to Rep. Maxine Waters. Let me get this right, Waters believes the murders, stabbings, and rapes are being perpetrated by the homeless and criminal element. Uhm…. Someone needs to tell the Congresswoman that the criminal element IS the Occupy movement.

(CNS NEWS) – When asked to comment Wednesday about the deaths and crimes that have occurred around Occupy protests being held across the country, Rep. Maxine Waters said “that’s life and it happens.”

“That’s a distraction from the goals of the protesters,” Waters, who says she supports the Occupy movement, told after an event at the Capitol sponsored by the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

“Let me just say this: Anytime you have a gathering, homeless people are going to show up,” said Waters. “They will find some comfort in having some other people out on the streets with them. They’re looking for food. Often times, the criminal element will invade. That’s life and it happens, whether it’s with protesters or other efforts that go on in this country.

“So I’m not deterred in my support for them because of these negative kinds of things,” said Waters. “I just want them to work at doing the best job that they can do to bring attention to this economic crisis and the unfairness of the system at this time.”
