Maybe she didn’t get that ‘if all your friends jumped off a bridge…?’ talk when she was a kid.
It could have saved her a lot of grief.
All the ‘cool kids’ (read: Hollywood, the media, the Democrat leaders) are tripping over themselves outdoing each other in denouncing and demonizing Trump.
And, not long after a BernieBro took his gun to baseball practice and started shooting up Republicans, people didn’t take the hint and dial it down.
Because they gotta #resist #notmypresident… right?
Wouldn’t want someone thinking they were failing in their social responsibilities of screaming like an idiot and making up BS accusations against the duly-elected President, or anything.
Well, she took it too far.
Only days after some dirtbag ran his car through a crowd of protesters, killing one, and wounding several others, Missouri Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal wished that Trump would be assassinated on her FB account.
The fact that it was her ‘private’ account was supposed to make it less egregious, somehow.
And then, according to GatwayPundit, she doubled down.
The people who actually survived such places, or have family members that did, won’t find that glib political grandstanding ‘cute’ or ‘excusable’.
And tweeting a picture of Auschiwitz to the first Jewish Governor of her state? What was she thinking? Or does she ever?
The picture of the gate of the camp includes the sign with the words, “Arbeit Macht Frei,” translated to “Work Sets You Free,” a slogan often found at the entrance of Auschwitz and other concentration camps. The train comment is in reference to the fact that many prisoners were transported to Nazi camps in that way.

Maybe she should stop, look in a mirror and think about where the REAL racism is coming from.
Especially when it’s coming from the political party that GAVE us the KKK, and DEFENDED slavery in the first place. And leveling it against the party that was created specifically because they wanted to ABOLISH slavery.
This is HER party’s history.
And so is this:
You were wrong, and race-baiting THEN, and you are wrong and race-baiting NOW.
She figured she would get away with it.
Just like Pelosi and others get away with baseless slander of everyone to the right of Lenin as racists, hateful, and (lately) responsible for the deaths of ‘millions’ of citizens for their opposition to their position on Health Care.
She will NOT get away with it.
Lieutenant Governor Mike Parson says he can and will expel State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal from the Missouri legislature if she doesn’t resign following comments made about President Trump on Facebook.
…“I have the ability and right to call on my fellow senators to have her expelled from the Missouri Senate, which I plan to do if she does not resign by the veto session.”
That veto session starts September 15, 2017. Once it does, senators would call for a special session to vote on Nadal’s expulsion. They would need a two-thirds majority of the vote to succeed. — Fox
From his official government page:
Lieutenant Governor Mike Parson Calls for Immediate Resignation of State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal After President of the United States Assassination Post
(JEFFERSON CITY) – Lieutenant Governor Mike Parson is calling for the immediate resignation of Missouri State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal after posting on social media her hope for the assassination of the President of the United States.
“It is a total disgrace for the Senator to call for the assassination of the President or any elected official. I believe she should immediately resign from her position, as this is conduct not befitting of a State Senator or a Missourian,” said Lieutenant Governor Mike Parson. “I will not sit idly by and let this kind of behavior transpire in our state, especially from members of our government. As a veteran of the armed forces, I was personally offended that a person elected to represent Missourians would call for the assassination of our Commander-in-Chief,” Lieutenant Governor Parson said.
Maybe if more elected officials got called out for behavior that undermines our actual democratic process, we could return to having a (semi) functional government again.
