Cori Bush Claims White Supremacists Shot At Ferguson Marchers
Cori Bush Claims White Supremacists Shot At Ferguson Marchers
Cori Bush lies a lot. Yesterday she tweeted out a doozy. According to her, when she was marching in Ferguson, white supremacists were shooting at them.
When we marched in Ferguson, white supremacists would hide behind a hill near where Michael Brown Jr. was murdered and shoot at us.— Cori Bush (@CoriBush) November 15, 2021
They never faced consequences.
If Kyle Rittenhouse gets acquitted, it tells them that even 7 years later they still can get away with it.
First off, Cori Bush and too many other irresponsible politicians, including Joe Biden have claimed numerous times that Kyle Rittenhouse is a white supremacist. Never mind the fact that ALL involved in this trial, those shot and Kyle Rittenhouse, are WHITE. Cori Bush and others have been yelling their white supremacist narrative from the rooftops since August 25, 2020.
Keep in mind, Cori Bush definitely marched during Ferguson. She’s also continually peddled the lies about Michael Brown, that were thoroughly debunked by the Department of Justice (with Eric Holder at the helm!), and wants law enforcement completely defunded.
We're going to defund the police and refund our social services.— Cori Bush (@CoriBush) October 19, 2020
Don’t like this idea? Well, we don’t like dead Black & Brown bodies & broken families at the hands of those sworn to protect us.
The police have failed at fixing themselves—so we're going to do it.
Yet, she also has demanded police protection for herself!
Two St. Louis deputies were dismissed last month for working on progressive Rep. Cori Bush’s security detail without permission — days before the “Squad” member defended spending tens of thousands of campaign dollars on private protection while pushing to “defund the police.”
St. Louis Sheriff Vernon Betts told KMOV that he initially warned now-former deputies Tylance Jackson and Maurice Thompson to quit moonlighting as muscle for Bush (D-Mo.) and fill out the proper forms after they accompanied her on a tour of St. Louis jails in April. However, Betts said he was told by Veterans Affairs Police several weeks later that Jackson and Thompson were providing security for Bush again.
In addition to violating policy by not getting approval to work a secondary shift, neither Jackson nor Thompson have licenses to work private security, Betts told KMOV.
In fact, the two officers in question then claimed it wasn’t because they were moonlighting as security without the proper clearances. Oh no. They were fired because the sheriff supposedly doesn’t like Cori Bush. Uh huh, how’s that working out for you guys right now?
Cori Bush is one of The Squad members. She believes the government should take care of everything and everyone. More spending with nothing to show for it is her answer. Will any of that spending fix the problems of crime, gangs, drugs, and more in her district? Nope. That’s ok though! She has the Ben & Jerry’s support!
Woke ice-cream maker Ben & Jerry’s has unveiled a new flavor whose proceeds will partly go to support lefty Rep. Cori Bush‘s $10 billion, anti-police bill that seeks to defund cops and replace them with social workers in certain incidents.
A portion of the proceeds from sales of the flavor, called “Change is Brewing,” will be donated to “grassroots groups working to transform public safety in America,” according to Ben & Jerry’s.
Yet another reason to leave Ben & Jerry’s ice cream rotting on the grocery shelves.
Let’s get back to Cori’s claim of white supremacists shooting at Ferguson marchers. We wrote extensively about Ferguson. As many of our long-time readers know, my family is from the St. Louis area, so I specifically kept a close eye on media and social media reporting at the time.
The media was all over Ferguson 24/7.
The media interviewed LOTS of protestors during that time. One would think that, if they’d been shot at, those protestors would’ve immediately taken advantage of being on national or international news to say so. Right?
Ok, so the riots needed to happen, but did you catch that? Exactly ZERO mention of anyone let alone white supremacists shooting at them while they were marching.
If that had happened, that information would’ve been the lede from this AP news report and there would be MULTIPLE news items archived at YouTube and on the web.
In other words, Cori Bush lied again. Yet, the folks running her reelection campaign insisted to the St. Louis Post Dispatch that it did happen because she said so!
This is FACTS! I vividly remember hiding under porches in Canfield as shots were fired at us. No one came to help us. We would come from under porches using cars as shields in between gun shots to make it out. https://t.co/dqmrcZznXB— Ohun Ashe 🌻🌼🌞 (@Ohun_Ashe) November 15, 2021
Here’s a teeny tiny problem with that.
In response to Bush’s claim, Ferguson Police Chief Frank McCall Jr. told the publication that there were no records of any such incident in which vigilantes, white supremacists or otherwise had shot at protesters in 2014.
Given how much scrutiny the Ferguson Police department was under at the time and since, you can darned well bet they were keeping meticulous records of everything reported.
There’s another problem with Cori’s claim. People are buying into her lies and working overtime to defend her. Example:

Minneapolis in 2020 therefore makes Cori’s lie a truth? Wow. Meanwhile, back in 2014 and 2015 during all the riots and protests, who DID get shot? Two police officers. And the shooter was definitely NOT a white supremacist, unless you can be one and be black at the same time?
Cori Bush’s rhetoric is irresponsible and incredibly dangerous. She’s framing the Rittenhouse Trial as a racial issue while peddling lies about her role in the Ferguson protests. You can damned well bet that, if Kyle Rittenhouse is found not guilty, Cori Bush will be one of the first to whip up the mob and excuse any violence that happens as a by-product of white supremacy.
