Cori Bush Hit With Immediate Reality Check After Mourning Michael Brown Nine Years After His Death

Like the other members of the so-called “Squad” of woke liberals in Congress, Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.) has become infamous for giving Democrats nightmares by inadvertently calling attention to how far out of the mainstream they’ve become on issues like abortion, community policing, and pronoun politics.


In addition to being a raging hypocrite, Bush has also become notorious for racial arson in the way she belittles black conservatives and completely revises history when it suits her political purposes.

A perfect example of her history revisionism came Wednesday, when Bush took to the Twitter machine to lionize Michael Brown on the 9th anniversary of his death, claiming Brown “would be alive today if the institutions of racism and white supremacy were eradicated”:

Well, um, no, it is unlikely Michael Brown, who was 18 years old at the time of his death, “would be alive today” if the so-called “institutions of racism and white supremacy were eradicated” – unless Michael Brown himself had chosen a different path than the one he took that fateful day which ended up with a Ferguson police officer having to use deadly force to defend himself.

Then-President Barack Obama’s own Justice Department concluded that Brown was not “murdered” by Ferguson, MO police officer Darren Wilson. The alleged “hands up, don’t shoot” narrative, which was turned into a rallying cry by social justice warriors and liberal commentators alike, was also determined to be false.


Unfortunately, Bush is not the only Democrat who has used Brown’s death as an excuse to pander and gin up more outrage.

Then-Democratic nominee for president Joe Biden shamelessly did it in August 2020. In 2019, then-presidential candidates Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren also got in on the action with claims so wildly off the mark regarding what happened that even the Dem apologists at several leading fact-checking orgs stepped in to correct the record.

If Democrats did not have the race card to fall back on as a crutch and rallying cry, their party as we know it would cease to exist. While incidents of racism still happen and likely always will, the fact that flamethrowers like Cori Bush nearly always fall back on discredited narratives suggests that those incidents perhaps are growing farther and farther in between, which is bad news for race hustlers like Bush, whose entire brand revolves around the incorrect notion of America being a racist nation with no redeeming qualities for communities of color.
