Politicians Who Claim Trump is Inciting Violence Against Ilhan Omar Gave Pass to State Senator Who Called for His Assassination

One set of rules for Republicans, another for Democrats.

The same politicians who are now incensed that President Donald J. Trump posted a video of the 9/11 attacks dubbed over Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-Minn.) now-infamous “some people did something” comments were silent when a State Senator from Missouri explicitly called for Trump’s assassination in March of 2018.

“I hope Trump is assassinated,” said now-State Rep. Maria Chappelle-Nadal (D-Mo.).

This explicit call to kill a sitting president did not draw a single mainstream press headline. It did not draw the ire of any elected officials – never mind those in the Democrat Party.

But after Trump slammed Omar for downplaying the 9/11 terrorist attacks, these formerly-silent politicians and penmen are enraged, construing Trump’s video as an “incitement of violence” against Omar.

“The President is inciting violence against a sitting Congresswoman – and entire group of Americans based on their religion,” said Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). “It’s disgusting. It’s shameful. And any elected leader who refuses to condemn it shares responsibility.”

“For two years, this President has used the most powerful platform in the world to sow hate & division. He’s done it again. Putting the safety of a sitting member of Congress at risk & vilifying a whole religion is beyond the pale. I’ll be blunt — we must defeat him,” said Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.).

The Women’s March, founded by Jew-hater Linda Sarsour, has made the same claim, and even called for Trump to be banned from Twitter.

Big League Politics reached out to Chappelle-Nadal, who called for Trump’s assassination, but she did not respond to a comment request.

Worth noting is that all of the same politicians and groups were silent when Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) was mauled in his yard by an angry, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) supporting neighbor attacked him, or when an other Sanders sympathizer, James Hodgkinson, shot up Congressional baseball practice, nearly killing Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.).
