Democratic Missouri State Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal’s latest tweet is creating quite a stir on social media — and once you see it, you’ll understand why.
The tweet aimed at Republican Gov. Eric Greitens, who is Jewish, comes right after Chappelle-Nadal made waves earlier this week for tweeting that she hoped Trump would be assassinated.
The Free Beacon reports:
Democratic Missouri State Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal retweeted a Holocuast-themed tweet on Thursday in reference to Missouri’s Jewish Republican Gov. Eric Greitens.
Chappelle-Nadal, the state lawmaker who recently wrote she hoped President Donald Trump would be assassinated, shared a tweet that said, “Greitens should know where the Trump Train goes. At the end of the line is this place!” The tweet included a picture showing the gates of a Nazi concentration camp.
The picture of the gate of the camp includes the sign with the words, “Arbeit Macht Frei,” translated to “Work Sets You Free,” a slogan often found at the entrance of Auschwitz and other concentration camps. The train comment is in reference to the fact that many prisoners were transported to Nazi camps in that way.
Sen. Claire McCaskil, also a Democrat, was quick to call for Chapelle-Nadal’s resignation after the assassination comment — and now the Missouri legislator has produced this little anti-Semitic number.
She, of course, refuses to step down despite the growing chorus of voices demanding that she do so.
This tweet is clearly from a sick mind, one who doesn’t get the irony of claiming to fight for equality while tweeting racist memes.
Elected officials need to be held to a higher standard than the average public servant, and as such, Chapelle-Nadal needs to either step down or be removed from her position.
Either way, she needs to go.
