Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her Squad will go to any length to push their radical agenda on every single American. But one crazy decision is coming back to bite them.
And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went into a rage after this Democrat made this enormous mistake.
After George Floyd’s passing, Democrats waged a full-scale attack against the police for carrying out their duties.
The Democrat Party’s top supporters of the defund the cops movement were Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her squad.
One prominent member of the Squad was exposed for engaging in a jaw-dropping act of hypocrisy while the Squad is advocating for the defunding of the police.
Cori Bush (D-MO), although coming from the violent St. Louis, is the newest addition to the Squad and a maniacal anti-cop.
She has been one of the most vocal advocates for cutting police funding.
Bush wants to cut funding for the police, while she spends a substantial fortune on personal security.
Bush has spent roughly $500,000 on private protection for the 2022 election season, according to federal campaign finance reports.
For “security services,” Bush spent over $100,000 in the third quarter of 2022.
Her campaign gave $71,201.06 to Peace Security, a private security firm based in St. Louis.
Peace Security claims that their “security operators have military or law enforcement experience.”
Cori Bush is spending tens of thousands of dollars on former law enforcement to provide her with personal security even as she is advocating for the defunding of the police, which would render Americans defenseless against crime.
Last year, when she was questioned about her extravagant spending on personal protection, Bush showed utter disregard for her evident hypocrisy.
“I’m going to make sure I have security because I know I have had attempts on my life, and I have too much work to do,” Bush said in July of 2021. “So if I end up spending $200,000, if I spend … Ten more dollars on it, you know what? I get to be here to do the work.”
Bush feels entitled to safety, despite the fact that St. Louis has the highest murder rate in the nation as a result of the city’s defunding of the police.
“So, suck it up, and defunding the police has to happen” Bush continued. “We need to defund the police and put that money into social safety nets because we’re trying to save lives.”
Bush isn’t changing her position on defunding the cops despite her blatant contradiction.
Democrats are frantically trying to reinvent themselves as pro-law enforcement after realizing that cutting police budget is a significant political problem.
When questioned about whether the movement was harming Democrats politically during a recent interview on ABC’s Good Morning America, Bush reiterated her support for cutting money to the police.
“We can’t get caught up on the words,” Bush said. “People spend more time focusing on the word ‘defund’ than they spend on caring and addressing the problem of police violence in this country.”
Cori Bush is yet another socialist who does not put her words into action.
