EXPLOSIVE! Missouri State Senator on Social Media: ‘I Hope Trump Is Assassinated!’

0

Missouri State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal acknowledged that she wrote a post which read: “I hope Trump is assassinated!” that she deleted a bit later. She may or may not have gotten a visit from the Secret Service!

U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., and the chairman of the Missouri Democratic Party both called Thursday for her immediate resignation.

“I condemn it,” McCaskill said in a brief emailed statement. “It’s outrageous. And she should resign.”

EXPLOSIVE! Missouri State Senator on Social Media: ‘I Hope Trump Is Assassinated!’

Missouri Party Chair Stephen Webber said in a separate statement that Chappelle-Nadal’s comments “are indefensible. 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.”

She made the comment in an exchange with a left-wing activist who claimed that his cousin is a Secret Service agent.

Chappelle-Nadal confirmed to a reporter with St. Louis TV station KMOX that she posted the comment.

“I put something up on my personal Facebook page and it has now been deleted,” she said.

“Something”

Yeah, something that just ended your career and gets you an interview with the Secret Service and possibly jail time!

The U.S. Secret Service has confirmed it is investigating the incident.

“I didn’t mean what I put up. Absolutely not. I was very frustrated,” Chappelle-Nadal told the newspaper. “Things have got to change.”

YES YOU DID!!!! You meant every word of it! It was as clear as it gets and what you did is sedition!

She was specifically frustrated with the domestic terror attack at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville. “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.”

NO! Sedition is what we should be talking about!

The U.S. Secret Service’s St. Louis field office “is looking into this,” the office confirmed.

Kristina Schmidt, special agent in charge, told the Post-Dispatch that “hypothetically” in such investigations, agents try to “determine intent, to determine if there was a violation of federal law. If there is, then we refer it to the U.S. Attorney.”

“Our primary goal is to determine if there is intent and meaning behind it,” Schmidt said.

According to a screenshot of the now-deleted conversation obtained by the Post-Dispatch, another commenter named Christopher Gagné was writing about a cousin of his who he said was on Trump’s Secret Service detail.

“But, what I posted earlier, I truly believe will happen, sooner … not later,” he wrote.

In a subsequent interview with the Post-Dispatch, Gagné said that wasn’t a reference to assassination, but to his earlier-stated belief that Vice President Mike Pence will use the 25th Amendment of the Constitution to have Trump removed from office.

“Damn,” Gagné then wrote, “now I’ll probably get a visit from the Secret Service smdh.”

(“smdh” is an abbreviation for “shaking my damn head.”)

Chappelle-Nadal responded: “No. I will. I hope Trump is assassinated!”

Let’s repeat that:

Chappelle-Nadal responded: “No. I will. I hope Trump is assassinated!”

Buh Bye Senator Chappelle-Nadal! You just ended your political career!

From Wikipedia:

Sedition is overt conduct, such as speech and organization, that tends toward insurrection against the established order. Sedition often includes subversion of a constitution and incitement of discontention (or resistance) to lawful authority. Sedition may include any commotion, though not aimed at direct and open violence against the laws. Seditious words in writing are seditious libel. A seditionist is one who engages in or promotes the interests of sedition.

Typically, sedition is considered a subversive act, and the overt acts that may be prosecutable under sedition laws vary from one legal code to another. Where the history of these legal codes has been traced, there is also a record of the change in the definition of the elements constituting sedition at certain points in history. This overview has served to develop a sociological definition of sedition as well, within the study of state persecution.

The term sedition in its modern meaning first appeared in the Elizabethan Era (c. 1590) as the “notion of inciting by words or writings disaffection towards the state or constituted authority”. “Sedition complements treason and martial law: while treason controls primarily the privileged, ecclesiastical opponents, priests, and Jesuits, as well as certain commoners; and martial law frightens commoners, sedition frightens intellectuals.”

… hmm. May have been guilty meself a few times over beers! – doesn’t count!!
