Freshman Rep. Cori Bush (D-BLM) is already earning her chops as a member of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-Clueless) “Squad” — in “splendid” fashion.
Before we get to Bush’s latest effort, the following promo tells you all you need to know about Cori Bush. The Black Lives Matter organizer, who marched in the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, to protest the legal police-shooting of Michael Brown, is scheduled to sit down with the geniuses of “The View” on Monday and “weigh in on the latest headlines.”
Too bad I’ll be busy; I’d love to hear her incisive commentary on the current goings-on.

Anyway, Bush took to Twitter on Sunday to pay homage to — exploit the hell out of — “the 13 people murdered by Trump’s death row killing spree.” Bush included the all-too-familiar, “Say their names” tag — an attempt to guilt “White America” over whomever people like Bush choose to exploit at any given time. In reality, here, we’re talking about murderers executed by the federal government during the Trump presidency.
The 13 people murdered by Trump’s death row killing spree:
William LeCroy Jr.
Say their names.

Boston Globe op-ed columnist Jeff Jacoby nailed it with his response to Bush’s tweet.
“Not one was murdered. Each was convicted unanimously of 1st-degree murder & sentenced to death by a jury. Each had extensive due process of law, including years of legal appeals.
“The names you should say are those of their victims. Do you know — or care — who those victims were?”
I got this one, Jeff. Hell no. Bush knows nothing about the murder victims of the ”above departed,” nor does she care about them or their loved ones in the least.

The only thing Cori Bush does care about, in this case, is parroting the false narrative of “racial injustice” in America. And she is far from the Lone Ranger in the effort.
“You know, people were like, ‘Oh, you shouldn’t be out protesting—you’re a congressional candidate,’” Bush says. ’And I’m like, this is what I do. People saw what I’ve been doing in my community. They know me. I’ve been doing it since 2014.'”https://t.co/Cur1q1Qur0

So, how about we make Bush aware of those victims? Not that she gives a damn about them, of course, but here we go.
Daniel Lee: Lee was executed for the torture and murder of a family of three; William Frederick Mueller, Nancy Ann Mueller, and their daughter Sarah Elizabeth Powell. Lee and an accomplice then dumped their bodies in a lake. Say their names, Cori Bush.
Wesley Purkey: Purkey was executed for the kidnapping and killing of 16-year-old Jennifer Long. Purkey dismembered her, burned her body, and dumped it in a septic pond. He was also convicted of murdering 80-year-old Mary Ruth Bales — with a hammer. Say their names, Cori Bush.
Dustin Honken: Honken was executed for the murders of five people in Iowa. The victims were related to a drug trial against Honkens. Say their names, Cori Bush.
Lezmond Mitchell: Mitchell was executed for killing 63-year-old Alyce Slim, and her 9-year-old granddaughter, Tiffany Lee, in Arizona. “If it had not been for the Trump administration,” said Tiffany’s father, “I do not think I would have ever received justice or a sense of finality.” Say their names, Cori Bush.
Keith Nelson: Nelson was executed for the kidnapping, torture, and murder of 10-year-old Pamela Butler of Kansas City. Say Pamela’s name, Cori Bush.
William LeCroy Jr.: LeCroy was executed for the rape and murder of Joann Lee Tiesler, a 30-year-old nurse, after breaking into her home. He bound her hands behind her back, strangled her with an electrical cord, and raped her. He then slashed her throat with a knife and stabbed her in the back five times. Say Joann’s name, Cori Bush.
Christopher Vialva and Brandon Bernard: Vialva and Bernard were executed for murdering two youth ministers, Todd and Stacie Bagley, after they had just attended a church service. Say Todd and Stacie’s names, Cori Bush.
Orlando Hall Hall was executed for the kidnapping and killing of a 16-year-old honor roll student. Hall raped her and forced her to perform oral sex. His accomplices subsequently drove her to a motel, where they tied her to a chair and repeatedly raped her. Hall arrived at the motel room the next morning, took Rene into the bathroom for fifteen to twenty minutes, and emerged to announce that “she knows too much.” Say Rene’s name, Cori Bush.
Alfred Bourgeois: Bourgeois was executed for torturing, sexually abusing, and bludgeoning to death his 2-year–old daughter. Say this scum’s toddler daughter’s name, Cori Bush.
Lisa Montgomery: Montgomery, the only woman on federal death row, was executed for murdering a pregnant woman in 2004 and abducting the unborn child — by cutting open her mother. Say their names, Cori Bush.
Corey Johnson: Johnson was executed for murdering seven rival gang members. One of the victims was stabbed 85 times, another was shot 16 times. Say their names, Cori Bush.
Dustin Higgs: Higgs was executed for the kidnapping and murder of three young women — Tamika Black, 19; Tanji Jackson, 21; and Mishann Chinn, 23. Say Tamika, Tanji, and Mishann’s names, Cori Bush.
As I said, Cori Bush is hardly the Lone Ranger — which doesn’t make her any less wrong.
Proverbial “bleeding-heart liberals” never seem to “bleed” for the real victims, choosing instead to indignantly wail about the “injustice” delivered to their killers.
Whether it’s horrific murders as described above or the murder of the unborn, those deaths don’t matter to the Left. Moreover, in the case of the latter, Democrats champion those murders. From Nancy Pelosi referring to late-term abortion as “sacred ground,” to Joe Biden calling abortion “an essential health care service,” this is who the Democrat Party is.
As for the new member of “The Squad,” our friends over at Twitchy correctly named her latest nonsense the “most insane take of the day.”
