The Missouri Senate voted to officially censure one of their lawmakers on Wednesday for a comment she made in August on Facebook hoping for President Trump’s assassination. After the violent protests in Charlottesville, Va. last month, lawmaker Maria Chappelle-Nadal posted on her personal Facebook page, “I hope Trump is assassinated!” She later deleted the post, but not before a screenshot was posted to Twitter, causing both Republicans and Democrats in Missouri to call for her resignation. Instead of ousting her, like some Republicans wanted, the Missouri Senate instead voted to publicly censure her. In Wednesday’s resolution, they again called for her to resign and warned that she could still be kicked out later. She soon apologized for the comment, saying it was made in frustration over Trump’s response to white supremacist violence in Charlottesville, but refused to resign. Chappelle-Nadal told KMOV in August, “I posted something on my personal Facebook and I should not have done that, and for that I am sorry for that. But I am not going to shy away from what caused that anger at all, I’m not going to shy away from that.” Chappelle-Nadal had previously been removed from her committee assignments.
Nowhere near enough. This piece of garbage needs to be kicked out of the Missouri Senate. Her very presence brings discredit upon that institution. Just imagine if some white legislator had said that about Obama… Yeah.. Exactly. This was a good first step. But, they need to throw that self-righteous, waste of perfectly good oxygen out on her butt.
Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens joined calls Friday for state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal to be expelled from the legislature after saying she hopes President Trump is assassinated. The Republican governor put out a string of tweets noting that lawmakers have called on the Democratic lawmaker to resign and urged the Senate to kick her out if she refuses. “Senator Chappelle-Nadal said she hopes the President is killed. Republicans and Democrats have called on her to resign,” he wrote. “… Last night, in an interview, she refused to apologize—twice. If she will not resign, the Senate can vote to remove her. I believe they should.” The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that Lt. Gov. Mike Parson backed the call, saying if she does not resign before an upcoming September session, he will seek her expulsion in his capacity as state Senate president. The Senate could do so with a two-thirds vote. Chappelle-Nadal made the original comment, since deleted, on Facebook. “I hope Trump is assassinated!” she wrote. Chappelle-Nadal eventually removed the post, but a screenshot was saved and shared on Twitter. In interviews with local outlets, Chapelle-Nadal said she regretted her post but not her anger at the president. She blamed her outburst on the president’s response to the white supremacist violence in Charlottesville. “I posted something on my personal Facebook and I should not have done that, and for that I am sorry for that,” Chapelle-Nadal told St. Louis television station KMOV. “But I am not going to shy away from what caused that anger at all, I’m not going to shy away from that.” The Secret Service told The St. Louis Post-Dispatch it is investigating Chapelle-Nadal’s post. Meanwhile, top Missouri Democrats – including Sen. Claire McCaskill and the chairman of the Missouri Democratic Party – also are calling on Chapelle-Nadal to resign. “I condemn it,” McCaskill told the Post-Dispatch. “It’s outrageous. And she should resign.” Missouri Party Chair Stephen Webber called Chappelle-Nadal’s comments “indefensible.” “I believe she should resign,” Webber said. But Chappelle-Nadal told KMOX Radio she won’t quit. “There is no way in hell that I’m resigning,” she said.
Of course not. She’s your typical entitlement-minded, self-righteous, black racist, extreme liberal Democrat. She openly said that the reason she said what she said was Trump’s fault. Um, no. It’s YOUR fault, Senator. Nobody forced you to say anything. But, being the self-righteous hypocrite she is, it’s “hell no, I won’t go.” The Missouri Senate is overwhelmingly Republican. They should simply expel her. They have the votes. And, even a couple of Dems would probably join in. They should have that vote on Monday and remove that disgusting piece of garbage from the Missouri state Senate.
It was way back in 1930 when the good people of Neosho, Missouri installed a giant, lighted cross in the Big Spring Park. The cross, about 60-feet long, was the centerpiece of the town’s annual Easter sunrise services. And while the sunrise services ended many years ago, the cross remained. For the past 87 years, not a single person in the community complained about the emblem – until last May. That’s when the town received a letter from an out-of-town group of atheists, agnostics and freethinkers. They demanded the cross be removed from public property.
That, of course, did not go over well in Neosho.. To read the rest of this story, click on the text above.
A Missouri convenience store clerk was hailed as a “she-ro” by fellow employees after police said she fatally shot a would-be robber during a smoke break. The wild confrontation unfolded after the 35-year-old worker, who was not identified, stepped outside for a smoke during her shift at a 7-Eleven in St. Louis just before 3:50 a.m. Monday, cops said. Suddenly, an armed man approached her and tried to rob her — but the woman, who was also armed, pulled out a pistol and shot the man in the chest, arm and thigh. The suspect, 30, later died at St. Louis University Hospital, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. The female clerk, who was shot twice in the leg during the gunfight, was listed in stable condition, KTVI reports. Employees at the convenience store — which reopened about two hours after the shooting — said she worked at the store for years and now has a new nickname at work. “I was glad she protected herself,” Davon Dodson told the Post-Dispatch on his first day of work at the store. “We’re calling her she-ro.”
How great is this?!? Kudos to this lady for exercising her constitutional right to self defense, and put this piece of garbage down. Also, kudos to the store owner for supporting her. Outstanding!! 🙂
