Black Pastors Turn on Maxine Waters – She’s Gone Too Far

By

Maxine Waters pushed too hard.

And now, some of the very people she claims to champion are turning against her.

In a string of recent appearances, Waters has encouraged Democrats, and particularly black Democrats, to confront Trump supporters and members of the Administration.

Her rhetoric has suggested that Waters would like these confrontations to be violent in nature.

And that doesn’t sit well with black pastors, even those who may oppose President Trump’s policies.

Via Breitbart:

A coalition of black pastors held a press conference on Thursday at the National Press Club to push House Speaker Paul Ryan to censure Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) for encouraging people to confront members of President Donald Trump’s administration.

The coalition is a network of some 800 pastors from across the country representing two million African Americans in their congregations.

“Her call to extremism based on where another American citizen works or with whom they associate must be sternly addressed by Speaker Ryan,” Star Parker, president of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE) said at the press conference. “An apology is not enough.”

“Maxine Waters’ actions are shameful,” Diante Johnson, president and founder of the Black Conservative Federation, said at the press conference.
