Gunmen opened fire on National Guard troops in Minneapolis injuring at least two soldiers.
The Minnesota National Guard said the shooting happened in the early morning hours when security teams were providing neighborhood security.
The attack happened just hours after Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) told an angry crowd in nearby Brooklyn Center to “get more confrontational.”

“We’ve got to get more confrontational,” Waters told the crowd. “We’ve got to make sure that they know that we mean business.”
“We’ve got to stay in the streets, and we’ve got to demand justice,” she declared.
Two members of the National Guard sustained minor injuries from shattered glass.
“I am relieved to know none of our Guardsmen were seriously injured,” said Maj. Gen. Shawn Manke, the Adjutant General of the Minnesota National Guard. “This event highlights the volatility and tension in our communities right now. I ask for peace as we work through this difficult time.”
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) blamed the attack on Waters.
“BLM terrorists took her orders and took action,” she wrote on Twitter. “She should be expelled from Congress.”

Republicans were right to be stunned and alarmed at Waters’ unhinged comments.
“The Radical Left don’t care if your towns are burning, if there’s violence in your streets, or if the police are too defunded to defend their communities. As long as the Left appeases their anti-America base, their job is done,” Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., wrote on Twitter.
