A group of powerful and influential black conservatives held a rally on Capitol Hill calling for the censure of Congresswoman Maxine Waters after she made comments implicitly suggesting violence as a form of protest on Thursday afternoon.

“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,” Star Parker, President of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education, said.

“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,” she added.

Jonathan Alexandre, the director of public policy at the Liberty Counsel, also spoke during the rally.

“This is a dangerous and unhinged call that signals to liberal activists that violence is a preferred way to demonstrate this disagreement,” he said.

At a rally last month, Rep. Waters said, “If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. Tell them they’re not welcome any more, anywhere!” (RELATED: Maxine Waters: God Is On The Side Of People Driving Trump Officials From Restaurants)

Since Waters’ comments, multiple conservatives and Trump administration officials have been confronted about the president’s policies while out in public. White House employees Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Stephen Miller and Kellyanne Conway have all been attacked in public.
