As law enforcement officials, other politicians, civil rights leaders, even President Obama were appealing for peaceful protests in the wake of the Ferguson grand jury decision, a Missouri lawmaker who has been prominent in the protest movement was declaring “war.”
Missouri State Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal, a Democrat firebrand who represents Ferguson in the state legislature, went on national TV Monday night with inflammatory, incendiary remarks that included the words “race war” a number of times.
Chappelle-Nadal stirred it up in Missouri in the wake of the Brown shooting by attacking the governor, also a Democrat. The senator lit up twitter when she lashed out, “You don’t know s**t bc (because) you never communicate. F**K you governor.”
That profane tweet was followed up with, “F**K you, governor, I am calling your bulls**t.”
But Chappelle-Nadal’s tweets were nothing compared with what she said during an MSNBC interview following the announcement that the grand jury would not indict officer Darren Wilson.
This Missouri state senator told a national TV audience, “This is our race war.”
