A school board candidate in suburban St. Louis who self-identifies as a "Confederate," says she's not racist, the St. Louis Post Dispatch reports.


Jeanie Ames once called Michelle Obama a “giant rat” on Twitter and has tweeted in support of banning Islam in the United States.

“I am not a xenophobic, homophobic, anti-Islam, anti-Semitic racist,” the Confederate says.

A recent debate featuring Ames drew protestors who shouted at her Cadillac as she drove away.

Ames is a Trump-supporter who printed Republican logos on her yard signs for the non-partisan race.

On Facebook, she has complained that those signs are being stolen and that she has gotten the police involved.

"We have people on the ground and technology where the signs have been stolen," she wrote.

She is also now proposing that Parkway look into a plan of arming students with buckets rocks to fend off school shooters who have AR-15s.

"I would evaluate this plan on it’s practicality and potential effectiveness. I’m interested in what parents and teachers think. Please share your opinions and thoughts," she wrote on Facebook.
