Cori Bush's Hypocrisy

Representative Cori Bush explained her position on “defunding the police” while also defending her spending on private security, in an interview Wednesday with CBS News.

BUSH: I have private security because my body is worth being on this planet right now. I have private security because they, the white supremacist racist narrative that they drive into this country. The fact that they don’t care that this Black woman that has put her life on the line, they can’t match my energy first of all.

So if I end up spending $200,000, if I spend 10, 10, 10 more dollars on it, you know what, I get to be here to do the work. So suck it up and defunding the police has to happen. We need to defund the police and put that money into social safety nets because we’re trying to save lives.

What an unmitigated crock.

This typical of socialist leaders who reserve one lifestyle for themselves and a much lower lifestyle for the people they control.

This is what “socialist equality” is all about. If you are a government leader, you live well and receive protection. If you are an average citizen, you lose police protection because the demagogues in your constituency demand it. A goodly number of those people who want to defund the police are the robbers and looters who want the police out of the way so that they can pursue “their profession.”

For those who think that socialism will bring prosperity and equality to all, this is the cold hard reality. The leaders take the assets confiscated by the government for themselves and leave the people far worse off than they were before.

It happens time after time, and yet “the little professors” who poison the minds of our youth can never see it.


Many of them are really government employees who are living well on the bloated tuitions that are paid by student loans. The world will be perfect for the greedy “little professors” when the student loans are forgiven, which what the far left is demanding now.
