Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, August 18, 2014

The Missouri state senator who tweeted profane messages at Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon (D) defended her words Monday during an interview on Fox News. "The reason why I used profane language is because he has allowed us to get tear-gassed for three days," state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal (D) told Fox host Gretchen Carlson. "He was at the state fair enjoying a country concert while we were getting tear-gassed and shot at," she said.

She was shot at? Can anyone tell me if protesters where shot at with rubber bullets?

They were shot with tear gas.

FERGUSON, Mo. - A Missouri State Senator said she was hit with tear gas while protesting in Ferguson.

State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal said she is angry at the military style force police are using to control crowds. The 14th district representative said she is outraged and offended by the aggression police are using toward protesters.

Chappelle-Nadal said she and 150 young protesters were hit with tear gas during a peaceful protest Monday night. She is calling out Missouri Highway Patrol.

"[Protesters] have every right to assemble freely and express themselves and not have tear gas thrown at them. By the way, tear gas was thrown on me and we could not breathe," said Chappelle-Nadal. "I approve their budget, so you know that I'm pissed off."

Chapelle-Nadal questioned Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson about the situation during a press conference early Wednesday. Chief Jackson was unaware that it had happened.

Sniper fire. Bet she wished she had a car antenna.

Man that joke is long-lived. I'm going to start selling Drudge Retort licensed self-defense antennas.

I suspect she used vulgarities for a number of reasons.

None of them make her look better.

I'd by one also. That and the Lunar smokestacks have been running jokes since I started this site. Better hurry rcade, before somebody beats you to it.

Typical. Rather than doing something positive about the situation (like joining the work force and the electorate) Sen. Maria and her young friends are too busy making noise, rippin' and runnin', and firmly burning their images in the minds of bigots across this great land. In a few months, when burned-out retailers announce they are not rebuilding, Maria et alia will wonder why they can't get a soda and bag of chips within five miles of their homes...

They've been tear gassing protesters in the US since at least 1969.

Not sure if it's sad, funny, or both to see some politicians now give a ---- after they personally get gassed.

They gassed, arrested and shot at even the media (and no it wasn't just Al Jazeera, other media outlets were gassed and shot at with rubber bullets).

So what? Hillary actually dodged sniper fire once and it's one of her qualifications to be president.

Would that even have buttons?? Or would it be more Ouija style which would tap into Vernon's mind.

I hope to God it is as bad as this lying piece of human excrement thinks it is. In the nine days since this kid was shot dead, more than 100 other young men died, murdered by other black men. So what is one black hide in all this crap. Fact is nothing. Kill a Jew, it means something, kill a Indian, it means something. Kill a white person it REALLY means something. And black trash have been killing white people to the tune of at least 1100 a year for the last 30 years. Most white people personally know someone who was murdered, robbed, assaulted or raped by black trash. The truth sucks. Say I lie like a rug, it doesn't change the facts.
