Trying Hard to Make Racists Look Correct

Racists used to claim that black people were too emotional to do math or science, much less discipline themselves sufficiently for self-government.  Now 8/17/17 Saint Louis Post Dispatch reports:
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!"
As outage over the comment spread Thursday, a top leader in Chappelle-Nadal's own party declared that Chappelle-Nadal "should be ashamed of herself."
Chappelle-Nadal's comment, referring to President Donald Trump, has since been removed. But Chappelle-Nadal confirmed to the Post-Dispatch that she had written it in response to another commenter before deleting it.
"I didn't mean what I put up. Absolutely not. I was very frustrated," Chappelle-Nadal told the newspaper. "Things have got to change."
Yup.  There were a few scattered idiots calling for assassination of Obama, but I do not recall any of them being elected officials or celebrities.  It would be unfair to use Chappelle-Nadal as a KKK poster child, because she is an elected Democrat.

Why all the KKK members are Democrats?

John,
they have always been part of the Democrat Party. Some long term, high profile Congress Critters were members. Until quite recently, in fact.
