Missouri Rep. Cori Bush criticized for calling Rittenhouse judge, jury and defendant racist

Missouri’s member of the Squad, Democratic Rep. Cori Bush of St. Louis, is under fire again, this time for her response to last Friday’s verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial.

“The judge. The jury. The defendant. It’s white supremacy in action,” Bush stated. “This system isn’t built to hold white supremacists accountable. It’s why black and brown folks are brutalized and put in cages while white supremacist murderers walk free. I’m hurt. I’m angry. I’m heartbroken.”

Top responses to Bush’s claim included:

  • Stephen L. Miller, podcast host: “She has no idea what any of these words mean and couldn’t explain how any of this was white supremacy if you sat her down and told her to explain it to you.”
  • David Hookstead, columnist: “A sitting member of Congress is hurt, angry and heartbroken because Kyle Rittenhouse killed a convicted pedophile. Of all the insane takes, this is among the worst.”
  • Delano Squires, political commentator: “My problem w/the left in general and the Afrostocracy, in particular, is how out of touch they are with the realities of life in America. Black ppl are 13 percent of the pop. & 50 percent of homicide victims but the ONLY time they bring attention to a case is when the perp is white. Shameful.”
  • David Reaboi, political commentator: “If you think these people don’t want Zimbabwe, you’ve got no idea what time it is.”
  • Lisa Boothe, Fox News: “What a liar. All they do is lie to divide. Such evilness.”
  • Nate Hochman, political commentator: “If you were critical of Trump because he was undermining faith in our institutions, now would be a good time to speak up about, you know, this.”
  • Drew Holden, columnist: “I remain quite curious about what intellectual contortions it takes to determine that a white guy being found not guilty for defending himself against three other white guys amounts to ‘white supremacy in action.’”

Bush has become one of the most controversial and, many say, outrageous members of Congress. Polling shows her comments, typically contradicted by the facts, have caused her poll numbers to drop in her deeply Democrat district. National Jewish groups have pointed out that the Congresswoman regularly makes hate-filled antisemitic comments.

Bryan Dean Wright, former CIA officer, stated “The Left is, once again, stirring their followers into mass hysteria. Bad things come from stuff like this.”
