|State lawmaker mocks Trump by calling for his death.. Now she's facing death threats and calls for her removal from office.|
A state lawmaker from Missouri called for the assassination of Donald J. Trump.
Now her choice of words got her in some deep trouble. It got bot sides of the Missouri State house angered. It earned a visit from the financially stretched U.S. Secret Service.
It earned her constant agitation from Rupert Murdoch's right wing media conglomerate.
Fox News is the only network that devoted to pointing out this nobody from St. Louis County making a tasteless remark about Trump on social media. Remember political correctness is what Republicans and conservative believe is "silencing dissent."
Barack Obama was called numerous things. Some resigned others got reelected.
Reminder: Rep. [Addison] Joe Wilson (R-SC) infamously yelled, "You lie!" during the Joint Session of the Congress when Obama spoke.
Reminder: Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-CO) called Obama a "tar baby."
Also we have Rep. Steve King (R-IA), Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL), Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC). They said some crazy bullshit and they still get reelected like Wilson and Lamborn.
So spare me the calls for resignation and phony outrage.
Trump has Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III, Sebastian Gorka, Stephen Miller and Mike Pence on the payroll. These right wing assholes are openly racist.
The woman apologizes for the comments. Her state colleagues roundly condemn the comments. But for the right wing racists and the folks at Fox News, it's not enough. They want her drawn and quartered.
Maria Chappelle-Nadel isn't holding back her thoughts. Although she said that her choice of words were wrong, she won't resign.
|Chappelle-Nadel is facing calls for removal.|
She added, "I made a mistake. And I'm owning up to it."
She was just recently removed from eight committee positions at the state house in Jefferson City.
Republican lieutenant governor Mike Parson calls for a special state session to remove her from the senate.
She is a state senator from University City, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis.
Now she's fundraising off this. She denounced the so-called "outrage."
When the country's own leader resorts to saying stuff like this, why should she be exempted from it?
Conservatives long complained about political correctness.
They want to be unfiltered when they discuss issues about how "Black Lives Matter kill cops." Perhaps, the "Black babies are aborted far more than White babies." Maybe the "Muslims aren't American."
That's why Charlottesville happened.
White conservatives gathered in the Virginia city to protest their outrage against the changing demographics in the United States, they chanted Trump's name.
Trump's tepid response to the violence in Charlottesville was met with fury from both sides and praise from notable white extremists like David Duke and Richard Spencer.
Chappelle-Nadel was frustrated with Trump's postings on social media slamming localities decisions to remove Confederate monuments.
