Black Christian Leaders Call On Paul Ryan To Censure Maxine Waters’ ‘Call To Extremism’

You sim­ply can­not make this up.
In order to find this rea­son­able, one would have to be total­ly turned off to over four hun­dred years of Slavery, Jim Crowe, the Prison Industrial Complex and the con­tin­ued fight of black peo­ple against racial oppres­sion and police abuse in America.
One would, how­ev­er, be able to under­stand why these mal­adies have been so intran­si­gent and dif­fi­cult to stop


A group of black Christian con­ser­v­a­tive lead­ers are call­ing on House Speaker Paul Ryan, R‑Wis., to cen­sure Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters of California for com­ments she made last month urg­ing sup­port­ers to direct­ly harass admin­is­tra­tion offi­cials at “any­time” and “any­where” they see them.

African-American con­ser­v­a­tive activists and reli­gious lead­ers gath­ered on Capitol Hill Thursday to pres­sure Ryan to for­mal­ly con­demn Waters on the House floor and pro­claimed that Waters does­n’t speak to the “faith of all black America.”

In ques­tion are Waters’ com­ments at a California ral­ly in late June in which she called for crit­ics of the admin­is­tra­tion to con­front Donald Trump admin­is­tra­tion offi­cials when they see them at a restau­rant, a gas sta­tion, a depart­ment store or wher­ev­er else they might be found in pub­lic.

Waters’ remarks came as there was much media cov­er­age over Trump admin­is­tra­tion offi­cials — White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen — being kicked out of restau­rants because they work for the Trump admin­is­tra­tion.

Her call to extrem­ism based on where anoth­er American cit­i­zen works and who they asso­ciate with must be stern­ly addressed by Speaker Paul Ryan,” Star Parker, pres­i­dent of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education, said at a press con­fer­ence. “An apol­o­gy is not enough, nor did she offer one when asked by House Speaker. As we move into two months of intense debate over SCOTUS nom­i­na­tion, the cen­sur­ing of Maxine Waters becomes of extreme urgency.”

Bishop Aubrey Shines of the non­de­nom­i­na­tion­al Glory to Glory Ministries in Tampa, Florida, assert­ed that law­mak­ers like Waters who say these types of things are also putting law-abid­ing sup­port­ers of the pres­i­dent — such as them­selves — in har­m’s way.
