(National Sentinel)Â Outrageous: Controversial Missouri state Sen.Â Maria Chappelle-Nadal is calling for the Democratic Party to embrace as part of its national platform reparations for slavery.
As reported by theÂ Kansas City Star, Chappelle-Nadal said she was motivated by constituents, adding that white Democratic politicians like U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., who is up for reelection this year, don’t care about blacks and their plights.
The paper reported:
Concerned about the plight of black people in her Missouri district, a Democratic state senator on Tuesday called for reparations for former slaves and criticized her own party for taking African-American votes for granted.
Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal, D-University City, criticized white Democrats, such as U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill, saying there’s “no difference” between them and Republicans. Both parties, she said, have failed black people.
â€œNeither one of them give a heck about the black community, only the votes,” Chappelle-Nadal said.
Speaking on the Senate floor during a debate on a tax bill, Chappelle-Nadal said she was motivated by the calls and emails she receives about her constituents’ needs.
â€œWhen Iâ€™m getting a single mother of three children calling me trying to find a place to live because they donâ€™t have a place to live, thatâ€™s whatâ€™s on my mind today and every single day,” Chappelle-Nadal said.
Chappelle-Nadal is no stranger to controversy. She made headlines after President Donald J. Trump’s 2016 election victory by posting on Facebook she hoped he would be assassinated. She was heavily criticized by the Missouri Senate but refused calls to step down.
Later, she tweeted a Holocaust threat to Missouri’s current governor, Eric Greitens, who is Jewish.
TheÂ Washington Free BeaconÂ reported:
The picture of the gate of the camp includes the sign with the words, “Arbeit Macht Frei,” translated to “Work Sets You Free,” Â a slogan often foundÂ at the entrance of Auschwitz and other concentration camps. The train comment is in reference to the fact that many prisoners were transportedÂ to Nazi camps in that way.
Greitens,Â a former Navy SEAL, is the first Jewish governor in Missouri’s history.
