During the 2020 presidential election, Biden’s (likely) illegitimate victory was not the only travesty that occurred. After all, not only did the original “Squad” retain their seats, but the pro-leftist, Communist-loving clique also gained a new member: Ms. Cori Bush.
Ms. Bush is a rather prominent BLM activist, which she literally wears upon her chest in more than one occasion. And that BLM activism comes complete with hatred of law enforcement and hatred of pretty much anything that is remotely pro-American or pro-freedom.
Which makes Ms. Bush’s despicable defense of an extremely violent riot that occurred in a St. Louis jail all the more grotesque, given that she is a supposed “representative” of Missouri.
In case you may have missed it, the Democrats’ encouragement of riots has spread from the streets to jails, and more than 100 inmates took matters into their own hands in St. Louis to riot about (you guessed it) “unsafe” conditions due to COVID.
Apparently, these inmates are so concerned with safety that they decided smashing glass, hurling chairs out windows, attacking and overpowering guards, and engaging in a number of other extremely violent behaviors was a superior way to promote calls for “safety.”
Something suggests extreme, imminent physical violence is a bit more dangerous than COVID, and something also suggests that these inmates may not have been following the strictest of COVID procedures themselves before their arrest.
Nonetheless, these inmates also have access to televisions and other goodies that would be unheard of in most of the world’s prisons, which means they collectively realize they effectively have attorneys sitting as state “representatives” in DC. And, unsurprisingly, these inmates were not mistaken.
According to “representative” Cori Bush, these inmates were not only justified in their behavior, but they should also be listened to as a result of their behavior.
First, she cites a quote from MLK, Jr. as a supposed defense for extreme violence.
“‘A riot is the language of the unheard.’ – Dr. MLK Jr.” [Source: Town Hall]
If Ms. Cori Bush is so interested in MLK Jr.’s real positions, perhaps she should also consult his numerous commentaries against violence, including the following:
“In spite of temporary victories, violence never brings permanent peace.” [Source: The Borgen Project]
In addition, MLK Jr. also specifically described nonviolence as the most noble weapon of all.
“Nonviolence is a powerful and just weapon, which cuts without wounding and ennobles the man who wields it. It is a sword that heals.” [Source: The Borgen Project]
Inconvenient truths for Ms. Bush, of course, though she also banks on her “followers” not conducting any independent research of their own. Which they don’t.
Then, as if her misrepresentation of MLK Jr. isn’t absurd enough, she follows up the quote with additional commentary of her own, as if her pathetic defense hasn’t been made clear enough from her selective quoting of MLK Jr.
“I want to talk to my constituents in the window. Their lives and their rights must be protected.
My team and I are working to ensure that the urgent needs of people who are incarcerated are not ignored.” [Source: Town Hall]
You don’t say, Ms. Bush. What an entirely unsurprising position.
As if American Patriots weren’t aware of the fact that the past 10-11 months have been nothing short of a total celebration of the violent criminal and a total degradation of law enforcement.
By the way, Ms. Bush, how about ensuring that the “urgent needs” of law-abiding citizens (whose taxes fund these inmates’ TV access in the first place) aren’t “ignored” either?
Oh, that’s right, such a logical concern wouldn’t be nearly “woke” enough for BLM and Antifa, whose hatred of America is so palpable that they decided to cast a pall on D.C. during Super Bowl weekend by marching around screaming for the city to be burnt down, when they weren’t busy harassing diners just trying to eat in peace, that is.
On top of Ms. Bush’s despicable defense of extreme violence, she also had the gall to blast Trump for presumably inciting violence at Capitol Hill, which pales in comparison to the violence in the St. Louis jail.
“I’m in the Capitol. I’m safe, and my team and I are sheltering in place.
The President of the United States has incited a riot that has now stormed the Capitol. There are rioters roaming the halls of the Capitol. I saw them with my own eyes.
Our country deserves better.” [Source: Town Hall]
“Our country deserves better.” Wow, ok. Guess Ms. Bush’s idea of a “better” country involves effectively zero law enforcement, not to mention zero accountability.
Biden’s America …
