Washington, D.C. – On the Fourth of July, Missouri Congresswoman and outspoken ‘Defund the Police’ advocate, Cori Bush tweeted, “When they say that the 4th of July is about American freedom, remember this: the freedom they’re referring to is for white people. This land is stolen land and Black people still aren’t free.”
Three days later, it’s reported that Cheri Beasley filed a joint fundraising committee (JFC) with Rep. Bush with the Federal Elections Commission (FEC). Yikes.
This isn’t Rep. Bush’s first preposterous controversy. Bush is also an outspoken advocate of defunding the police, once tweeting: “Investing more money in policing is always bad, actually.”
She is also a self-described socialist and member of the anti-Israel BDS (boycott, divestment, and sanctions) movement.
It’s clear that the rush to the Left in the North Carolina Democrat primary is making candidates do some crazy things, including tearing down our country and our police.
Statement from NRSC Spokesman T.W. Arrighi: “Cheri Beasley has already made a blunder for the ages by teaming up with a Defund the Police, anti-Independence Day radical to raise money and win support from socialists. For Democrats in North Carolina, appeasing a vocal minority of voters is more important than disparaging our nation, our cops, and those of all backgrounds who’ve fought and died to protect Americans like her. We are sure general election voters will not forget this next November.”
