Democrats have lost their minds.
Liberals are destroying monuments and committing vandalism in response to Donald Trump’s response to Charlottesville.
But one Democrat found herself in hot water after taking it to the next level and threatening to kill Trump.
Missouri Democratic State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal wrote on her Facebook page that she hoped “Trump was assassinated.”
The New York Post reports:
“A Missouri lawmaker acknowledged Thursday that she posted and later deleted a comment on Facebook about hoping for President Donald Trump’s assassination, saying she was frustrated with the president’s response to the white supremacist rally and violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Democratic Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal said she was wrong for writing the post and didn’t mean what she said, but she refused calls to resign. She said she wrote “I hope Trump is assassinated!” in response to a post that suggested Vice President Mike Pence would try to have Trump removed from office.
“What I wrote down on my private Facebook page, was it wrong? Absolutely,” she told The Associated Press. “But I am going to continue to talk about the anger and the frustration that led to that.”
Her unhinged ranting about killing the President was another example of Democrats calling for violence.
She apologized and quickly deleted her post, but her overheated rhetoric comes at a time when the rise of the violent alt-left is a major story in America.
Just weeks ago a supporter of Bernie Sanders attempted to assassinate Republican members of Congress as they practiced for a baseball game.
Her comments were quickly condemned by Democrats across Missouri, including Senator Claire McCaskill and the State Democrat Party chair who both said she should resign.
The Kansas City Star reports:
Her Facebook comment, which was first reported by a conservative radio host in St. Louis, was condemned by Senate Minority Leader Gina Walsh, a St. Louis County Democrat.
“Promoting, supporting or suggesting violence against anyone, especially our elected leaders, is never acceptable,” Walsh said in a statement. “There is too much rancor and hate in today’s political discourse, and Sen. Chappelle-Nadal should be ashamed of herself for adding her voice to this toxic environment.”
McCaskill, a Democrat, released a statement on Chappelle-Nadal’s comment: “I condemn it. It’s outrageous. And she should resign.”
Stephen Webber, chairman of the Missouri Democratic Party, agreed that Chappelle-Nadal should resign.
“State Sen. Chappelle-Nadal’s comments are indefensible,” Webber said. “All sides need to agree that there is no room for suggestions of political violence in America — and the Missouri Democratic Party will absolutely not tolerate calls for the assassination of the president. I believe she should resign.”
Missouri Auditor Nicole Galloway, a Columbia Democrat, tweeted that Chappelle-Nadal’s “words and sentiments are absolutely unacceptable. Violent rhetoric has no place in our political discourse.”
The media was furious because Trump pointed out there was violence on both sides in Charlottesville where Anti-fa and Black Lives Matter clashed with white supremacists.
What they were really mad about was Trump ending the left’s free pass on violence.
The quick reaction to Chappelle-Nadal’s comments is one example of the changing political environment.
Democrats are used to being able to getting away with saying anything they want to about Republicans.
But that day is over.
