Prominent Missouri Democrat Calls for Reparations for Slavery
In September 2017 Missouri State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal hoped for the assassination of President Trump in a Facebook comment in August.
Chappelle-Nadal followed this up by tweeting out a Holocaust threat to Jewish Missouri Governor Eric Greitens.
On Tuesday Democratic Senator Maria Chapelle-Nadal called for reparations for slavery.
Kansas City.com 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.
“Neither 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.
It’s only a matter of time before Democrats push this on a national level.
