When it comes to race baiting somethings do not change and some things are made to fit the 21st century. According to Breitbart, Democrat Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal, has to dig up the worn-out notion that blacks are entitled to slave reparations. By the way she is the same person who called for the assassination of President Donald Trump last August that she posted to social media. Should she have been arrested or ousted from the state senate?

Well, this apparent unbalanced Missouri legislator is just a new face on an old race baiting behavior pattern which Rev. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton made millions off of. Somehow this new but not improved version of the two race hustlers has a mainstream media audience that dates back to the Ferguson riots over Michael Brown. Her odious remarks then were baseless as well as race laced nonsense.

Now, Sen. Chappelle-Nadal is turning her race-baiting artillery at her own fellow democrats. She issued a demand that the state pass into law a reparations policy. Would it apply to only blacks who were born in the state, moved to the state or declared themselves to be black? See the point of this ridiculous notion? Even members of her own party are keeping their support for this at arms-length.

If you listen to her rationale one has to wonder just how credible the candidates who ran against her for office must have been. She is not tuned into any reality that even the most supportive voter in her district should embrace. For example, she insists that the need for slave reparations is crucial because, "When I'm getting a single mother of three children calling me trying to find a place to live because they don't have a place to live, that's what's on my mind today and every single day," reported Breitbart.

How about looking into the needs of your constituents and find out is their lack of housing has anything to do with liberal educational policies in their schools that cost those mothers future jobs, housing and careers. How she can tie their sincere plight into something that originated in slavery over 160 years ago is more than a stretch...it is ludicrous.

She even took aim at Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) for not supporting her slave reparation payday for blacks in Missouri. She claimed that Sen. McCaskill was "no different" than Republicans who generally oppose reparations for slavery. Well, credit McCaskill for having enough sense to walk away from a lose-lose proposition.

By the way, last August when Chappelle-Nadal posted that incendiary comment concerning President Trump, eventually she did issue a lame apology. She sheepishly commented, ""I am not resigning. ... What I said was wrong, but I am not going to stop talking about what led to that, which is the frustration and anger that many people across America are feeling right now," according to Breitbart.

Translated, her statement means, no one supported her and perhaps the Department of Justice and the FBI had expressed a viable interest in her dangerous looney tunes rant. Whether it is in the 20th or 21st century, stupid is as stupid does and Sen. Chappelle-Nadal is a prime example.
