Cori Bush


(FreedomWire.org) – Democrat Rep. Cori Bush made very strong accusations during a House committee hearing regarding fossil fuels on Wednesday.

Bush tried to paint a witness in an extremely unflattering light, but it didn’t quite go as she’d hoped. The chairman actually allowed the witness to respond to Bush’s attacks, and he proceeded to completely dismantle her dishonest narrative.

Bush started her opening statement by first going after the oil industry at large before intentionally derailing the topic by accusing an unidentified witness as being a white supremacist.

“If House Republicans actually cared about preventing an energy and economic crisis from happening, they would commit to investing in renewable energy,” she said. “Unfortunately, there are no serious proposals being offered. Rising inflation, caused by Russia’s violent invasion of Ukraine and COVID-19 related supply chain shortages, combined with dangerous corporate greed and reliance on fossil fuels, has left the United States in a tenuous position.”

From there, she further criticized her GOP peers for bringing in “for-profit think tanks and oil-titans” that aim to allegedly maximize profits at the expense of lower income minorities.

Then she proceeded to pull out the race-card.

According to Bush, “One of these so-called ‘energy experts’ is a philosopher who has previously espoused white supremacist views.”

“For instance, in his 2000 college newspaper, he wrote ‘the African and American studies department has 23 classes and many of these classes African culture is presented not as…” Bush said before another member of the committee began to cut her off.

“Mr. Chairman, I ask the gentlelady’s words be taken down,” said Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert. “She just called the witness a white supremacist.”

“No, I referred to the words, not to the person,” Bush replied.

“The gentlelady is referring to the witness statement and referred to him as a white supremacist, I would like a parliamentary decree having the gentlelady’s words taken down,” Boebert requested.

Boebert continued by asking the chairman if it was “appropriate for ranking members to show respect to the witnesses who are here, present in the room today?”

Bush was allowed to continue speaking from that point on, “As I was saying, the African and African-American Studies Department, this is the quote, ‘has 23 classes in many of these classes, African culture is presented not as inferior to Western culture, but as one equal footing with it in other departments. The same is done with Latin American, Indian, and American Indian culture’.”

She continued, adding that “When confronted about these views over two decades later, rather than disavow them, he doubled down on this narrative saying, quote, ‘It has nothing to do with skin color. I was arguing that those cultures overall are inferior to Western culture.’ We are not inferior to any culture. Speaking as the descendant of one of those cultures, this is the witness the Republicans invited to discuss issues of energy security.”

Bush was referencing opinions made by Alex Epstein, the president of the Center for Industrial Progress.

He then explained, “What I argued and what I’ve argued for my entire adult life is that Western culture is superior in the sense that it promotes individualism and freedom. And I have fought my entire life for freedom around the world – including in Africa, including in Asia, including in India […] There are different places around the world that are in many ways inferior. They have female genital mutilation. They have slavery. These are not as good as not mutilating female’s genitals and not enslaving people.”

He concluded, “The idea that freedom and reason and individualism only apply to people of certain skin colors, that is the actual original racist idea.”

(FreedomWire.org) – Missouri Democrat Cori Bush issued a statement on the heinous killing of Tyre Nichols at the hands of five black Memphis police officers and arrived at the conclusion that this too, is an example of white supremacy.

Graphic footage from the bodycams of the officers released on Friday shows they repeatedly beat 29-year-old Tyre Nichols with the victim succumbing to his injuries three days later.

The five police officers have been charged with his murder.

“Charging the officers who brutalized Tyre is not enough,” Bush said.

“Merely diversifying police forces will never address the violent, racist architecture that underpins our entire criminal legal system,” she explained. “The mere presence of Black officers does not stop policing from being a tool of white supremacy.”

Let’s be clear here – the only ‘tool’ involved in Cori Bush’s statement on the Tyre Nichos tragedy is the author.

Let us also be clear that voters in Missouri really need to raise their standards when it comes to electing people to Congress. Bush is not qualified to work at her local fast-food restaurant let alone as a lawmaker representing the people in her district.

The ‘defund police’ advocate reiterated her claim that Nichols’ death was an example of ‘white supremacy.’

“I will not stop advocating for a country where our government helps feed, house, educate and support our children, families, and community members, instead of slaughtering them at the altar of white supremacy,” she stated.

Twitter users called out the insanity of the white supremacy excuse.
