Black conservative leaders told House Speaker Paul Ryan on Thursday to censure —to publicly reprimand—Rep. Maxine Waters for comments she made last month telling people to harass Trump officials in public, Town Hall reports.

“[Maxine Waters] “is the unchallenged face of the Democratic Party,” Johms Gools of the Victory Christian Center in Charlotte, NC said in a press conference with other Black conservatives. Adding that, “she represents half of the U.S.”

Gools said that Waters should retract her comments about confronting supporters of President Donald Trump.

“Reverse, retract and call for an end to this activity now,” he said.

The president of The Center for Urban Renewal and Education, Star Parker, said in a press conference that Rep. Waters “is not the reflection of black America.”

“The attacks have to stop and the attempt to destroy peoples’ lives is not what this country is about,” Parker said in a statement prior to the press conference. “It stops when Congress acts to rebuke and condemn the comments of Maxine Waters.”
