A group of conservative black men and women are now gathering support and publically calling for the censure of Rep. Maxine Waters (CA-D).
Led by Star Parker, president of the Center for Urban Renewal Education, and Johms Gool, senior pastor of Victory Christian Center, and many other prominent members of the conservative black community, they descended on Capitol Hill on Thursday to demand that House Speaker Paul Ryan (WI-R) censure Waters for her inflammatory rhetoric.
The group is responding to Waters’ recent inflammatory remarks openly calling for people to form a mob and physically confront members of the Trump administration if they see them out in public after the manufactured controversy over separated illegal migrant families erupted. The policy of separating illegal migrant children from their illegal migrant parents at the border has been an ongoing situation spanning years.
The group emphasized their position that free speech is a protected right, and no one should be harassed for supporting the president. Video of Waters’ remarks at a Los Angeles rally went viral earning the radical California Democrat a well earned and very public rebuke from Republicans and even some Democrats. However, this group of men and women insist that these rebukes are merely words and not enough. Action in the form of censure must follow to set an example. Some, among more radical liberal circles, have defended Waters, including the Congressional Black Caucus. As a result, conservative black leaders felt it was time to step up to counter the so-called “resistance” with a voice of reason from within their own community.

Johnathan Alexandre, director of public policy at the Liberty Counsel, stated – “This is a dangerous and unhinged call that signals to liberal activists that violence is a preferred way to demonstrate this disagreement. This resistance is not progressing at all, but is rather in a standstill, hunched over in a dark corner of bitterness and self-loathing and now dangerous retaliation.”
The vitriol and calls for violence extended even into the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court as the replacement for retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy with US Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) leading protests against the nomination on the steps of the Supreme Court in Washington.
“Are you ready for a fight? Are you ready to defend Roe v. Wade?” Sanders said.
“This is a tough fight but it is a fight that we can win . . . We have the American people on our side, now we have to go state by state by state to make sure senators do what their constituents want.”
Meanwhile, Gool claims this lack of respect for civil dialogue is indicative of the Left and their repeated and continuing attempts to undermine the Constitution, and by extension President Trump and his administration. He also praised the nomination of Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court because he believes in the original meaning of the Constitution.
Gool stated – “I contend that our Constitution is never outdated because rather than being hundreds of pages filled with policy like these modern constitutions, our founder put together a few simple pages dealing with human nature. Now, human nature has no expiration date, and neither does our constitution and although it was not perfect, it left a means for fixing imperfections, allowing me to stand before you today.”
Parker openly condemned Waters stating plainly that the Congresswoman is openly encouraging the kind of behavior that keeps families separated and leads to civil war. Parker states the purpose of their press briefing was to allow America to see that Waters is not the face of all of black America.
Parker stated – “Congresswoman Maxine Waters has violated the sacred trust we each have to each other as Americans that have each of our rights stop at the others nose. Her call to extremism based on where another American citizen works and who they associate with must be sternly addressed by Speaker Paul Ryan and apology is not enough, nor did she offer one, after being asked by House Speaker.
We move into two months of intense debate over the next SCOTUS nomination the censuring of Maxine Waters becomes of extreme urgency so we compel Speaker Paul Ryan to heed the call of many on the Freedom caucus today and his colleague and censor Maxine Waters today.”
