Here’s the latest in the continuing rise of the New Fascist Democrats, who actually promote violence against their perceived enemies.  According to the St. Louis Dispatch, “The U.S. Secret Service is investigating a Facebook post from Missouri state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal, D-University City, in which she stated: ‘I hope Trump is assassinated’!”

It apparently happened under a comment by an activists named Christopher Gagne, who claims to have a cousin in the Secret Service.  Here’s a screen shot of the now-deleted post:

“But, what I posted earlier, I truly believe will happen, sooner … not later,” he wrote.  Then he wrote, “Damn, now I’ll probably get a visit from the secret service smdh.”

Under that, Chapelle-Nadal wrote, “No.  I will.  I hope Trump is assassinated.”

Gagné told the Post Dispatch that he was referring to the hope that Vice President Mike Pence will use the 25th Amendment of the Constitution to remove the President from office. However, a desire for Pence to invoke the 25th would obviously not trigger a Secret Service visit.

Chappelle-Nadal, on the other hand, stated clearly and unequivocally her wish: “I hope Trump is assassinated!”  Chappelle-Nadal accepted responsibility for her words — sort of — but downplayed their significance:

“I put that up on my personal Facebook and I should not have,” Chappelle-Nadal said. “It was in response to the concerns that I am hearing from residents of St. Louis. I have deleted it, and it should have been deleted, but there is something way more important that we should be talking about.”

Chappelle-Nadal said that in the wake of Charlottesville, “there are people who are afraid of white supremacists, there are people who are having nightmares. there are people who are afraid of going out in the streets. It’s worse than even Ferguson.”

When she refers to Ferguson, of course, she refers to the  2014 death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.   The Daily Caller reminds us that the Ferguson riots were, of course, based on a media lie:

Liberal journalists and activists spread far and wide the myth that Michael Brown had his hands up before being gunned down by police officer Darren Wilson. That claim was the origin of the Black Lives Matter movement and eventually lead to violent rioting in Ferguson. The facts of the case showed the ‘Hands up don’t shoot’ claim to be false and that Wilson was justified in shooting Brown.

Try again, Chappelle-Nadal. You are responsible for your own actions.  It’s horrible for any American to express a desire that someone kill the President.  For an elected official to do so is inexcusable.
