In a sign that many voters of color may soon #WalkAway from the Democratic party, a group of black conservative leaders are calling for Speaker Paul Ryan to censure Rep. Maxine Waters.
Like so many on the left, Mad Maxine has just become crazier by the day as all efforts to take out President Trump using deception, skullduggery and anti-constitutional methods have failed and the midterms are less than four months away.
The queen of impeachment has always been one of the most extreme members of The Resistance but she took it to another level entirely last month when she exhorted the hate mobs to go after administration officials in public, cracking open the door on politically sanctioned violence.
Her lunacy may yet vault the soon to be octogenarian congresswoman into the upper echelon of 2020 Democrat presidential candidates but she also runs the risk of bolstering the chances that there will be a slave revolt on the Democratic party plantation with black voters who recognize that the party’s extremism has now gone more than a bridge too far.
The coalition of black pastors and other leading black conservative leaders convened at the National Press Club in Washington D.C. on Thursday.

Via The Washington Examiner “Black conservative leaders call for censure of Maxine Waters”:
A group of conservative African American figures, including Star Parker, gathered on Capitol Hill on Thursday and called on House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., to censure Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., after she called on her supporters to confront members of President Trump’s administration in public.
“This is a dangerous and unhinged call that signals to liberal activists that violence is a preferred way to demonstrate this disagreement,” said Johnathan Alexandre, director of public policy at the Liberty Counsel. “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 group that descended on Capitol Hill on Thursday emphasized that free speech is a protected right, and no one should be harassed for supporting the president.
Parker, president of the Center for Urban Renewal Education, condemned Waters for encouraging the kind of behavior that keeps families separated and leads to civil war. She stated their press briefing was to show Waters is not the face of all of black America.
“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,” Parker said. “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.”
The meeting didn’t get much play in the media because this time the condemnation of Waters (who is acting like a domestic terrorist) can’t simply be explained away as just racism. The biggest untold story in politics today is that the real resistance is that there are black people who are resisting the Democratic party which is creeping closer to socialism and authoritarianism with each failed attack on Trump.
Would Ryan heed the call to censure nutty Waters? Highly unlikely because the Congressional Black Caucus would go absolutely bonkers.
