The utter ridiculousness coming from the Democrat Party as of late knows no bounds.
The radical ‘Squad’ coalition consisting of Far-Left Marxists in the House of Representatives have repeatedly embarrassed themselves — oftentimes live on TV. From AOC to Ilhan Omar, and now Cory Bush, these young and idiotic group of hypocrites is not only an embarrassment for the Democrat Party, but for the country as a whole.
Most recently, Rep. Cory Bush of Missouri has shown herself to be the leading hypocritical moron of the group.
A House Democrat lawmaker says it’s OK to have private security amid her calls to defund police departments.
In an interview on Thursday, Bush threw a wild temper tantrum defending her use of private security while simultaneously advocating for defunding of police. The interviewer asked Bush how she justified spending over $70,000 while working to eliminate security for the American people.
“If I end up spending $200,000, if I spend $10 more on it, you know that I get to be here to do the work. So, suck it up. Defunding the police has to happen. We need to defund the police and put that money into a social safety net.”
“I’m going to make sure I have security…And defunding the police has to happen. We need to defund the police…" – Dem. Rep. Cori Bush.

Suck it up?!
Is that really the messaging Bush believes will get more Americans on board with her radical cause?
Meanwhile, this kind of snide, sneering, pandering affect is common amongst most progressive Democrats. The universities have trained a force of radical cynics who unleash their derogatory and insulting remarks the minute they graduate and earn a platform. There’s an extreme case of narcissism sweeping the nation — and Rep. Cory Bush has it bad.
Bush took heat for her stance on cutting the budget of local law enforcement after campaign filings showed she spent around $70,000 on private security as she was advocating defunding the police. According to the filings with the Federal Election Commission, her campaign paid $54,120.92 to RS&T Security Consulting and $15,000 to Nathaniel Davis for “security services” between April 15 and June 28.
The Missouri Democrat, along with progressive members of the “Squad,” have taken a similar stance in the last few years, causing problems for the Democratic Party at large as it tries to present a more centrist image. Defunding the police became a battle cry for activists on the Left following the death in Minnesota of George Floyd, a black man, at the hands of a white Minneapolis officer.
However, House Republicans successfully used the “defund the police” mantra against their Democratic opponents during the 2020 election cycle, which contributed to Democrats’ losses in the chamber of nearly a dozen seats.
