Rep. Cori Bush, the radical Missouri

Missouri Democrat Invokes An Unproven Tale To Smear Kyle Rittenhouse As A White Supremacist

Last time we heard from Rep. Cori Bush, the radical Missouri Democrat was telling critics to get over the fact that she had spent more than $70,000 on private security as she called for defunding the police for everyone else.

At the time, in August, she also claimed racist white cops were threatening to kill her, as The Free Press reported. When, incredibly, a pair of liberal reporters actually questioned Bush’s assertion by asking why she had not tried to get the rogue cops fired or arrested, she replied, “You know … work is being done. We’re fine. We’re fine.” 

Now, she’s back with more race-baiting – this time about Kyle Rittenhouse.

Although President Joe Biden, Democrats generally, Black Lives Matter activists, and the left-wing media have smeared Rittenhouse as a “white supremacist,” no one has produced actual evidence that the young man is what they claim.

Bush, though, is undeterred.

Earlier this week, she tweeted, When we marched in Ferguson, [Missouri], white supremacists would hide behind a hill near where Michael Brown Jr. was murdered and shoot at us.”

“They never faced consequences. If Kyle Rittenhouse gets acquitted, it tells them that even 7 years later they still can get away with it.”

The first problem with her tweet is that Brown was not “murdered.”

He was killed by a Ferguson police officer who shot him in self-defense as Brown attempted to seize his gun during an altercation. Both prosecutors and the Obama Justice Department cleared the officer of any wrongdoing.

Nonetheless, Ferguson Police Chief Frank McCall Jr. told the local media that there was no record of any such incident.

“None that I’m aware of,” he told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, adding that he didn’t know of any incidents that Bush’s tweet referred to.

The paper pointed out that McCall only joined the Ferguson force in July. But before that, he had been a longtime officer and chief of the police department in neighboring Berkeley, Missouri.

In response to Bush, a man named Chad Hickam, who said he was a police officer in the area at the time of the Ferguson riot, tweeted that the congresswoman was “full of s–t!”

“I was in that area as an LEO while riots were going on in Ferguson.  We as police were getting stuff thrown at us, fires set, and gunshots every which way. Cori Bush was not [in] that area due to the area being secured and no one allowed there,” he added.

One of Bush’s supporters sought to bolster her case by sharing a story of a white man driving through a crowd of black “peaceful protesters” in a nearby community who allegedly fired a gun after one man refused to get out of the street and they began screaming at him and beat on his truck.

The problem is that happened last year during the George Floyd uprisings.

Around the time Bush references, it seems some people did get shot. Except that didn’t fit her story either. A black man, Jeffrey Williams, actually shot two cops. Williams claimed he was shooting at someone else, but the police chief at the time believed his officers were targeted.

As for Bush’s tweet, PJ Media columnist Stephen Kruiser summed it up well: “Yes, we’re writing about it here at conservative media outlets but it’s a safe bet that The New York Times or The Washington Post won’t be exhibiting any curiosity about this latest mendacious word barf from the always execrable Rep. Bush.”

“She could start telling stories about being attacked by a ship full of space alien invaders who all look like Donald Trump and there would be shrugs all around in the MSM.”
