This member of the far-left “Squad” saw her calls to “defund the police” come back to haunt her

It can’t be easy having to live life in a way that’s completely at odds with the beliefs you hold near and dear.

Increasingly though, this has been a common conundrum for far-left politicians.

And this member of the far-left “Squad” saw her calls to “defund the police” come back to haunt her.

Missouri Democrat Cori Bush confirmed that her car was struck by gunfire in the St. Louis area on Saturday.

A source close to the Congresswoman told local TV station KSDK that Bush was uninjured and it is believed that she was not a target of gunfire that hit the parked vehicle.

Bush later said, “Any act of gun violence shakes your soul. That’s why our movement is working to invest in our communities, eradicate the root causes of gun violence, and keep everyone safe.”

The irony here is that Bush blames “gun violence” for her vehicle being shot – not the fact that criminals are on the streets engaged in gun fights because police are stretched too thin thanks to her efforts to “defund the police.”

If this story sounds familiar, it’s because something very similar happened once before to Rep. Bush.

In June 2020, Bush tweeted images of another incident where gunfire caused damage to her vehicle.

Back in August, Bush was heavily criticized for hypocrisy when it was revealed that she spent $200,000 on private security while pushing to defund the police.

Jerry Dunleavy of the Washington Examiner tweeted, “In less than 30 seconds . . . Cori Bush: ‘I’m going to make sure I have security.’ Also Cori Bush: ‘And defunding the police has to happen. We need to defund the police.’”

Former Governor Scott Walker (R-WI) also chimed in, saying “Listen carefully. This is who is driving the agenda of the left.”

Responding to critics calling out her hypocrisy, Bush said, “they would rather I die? You would rather me die? Is that what you want to see? You want to see me die? You know, because that could be the alternative.”

But the richest part was the follow up quote from Bush.

“I have private security because my body is worth being on this planet right now.”

Seems the lack of self-awareness is strong with this one.

During the same week of the first car shooting incident, Mark and Patricia McCloskey were given pardons for wielding guns as Black Lives Matter protesters menacingly marched in their neighborhood last year.

In commenting on the pardons, Bush said threateningly that Mark McCloskey’s “day will come.”

Security for me, but not for thee.

Just another example of how far-left hypocrisy knows no bounds.
