Rep. Cori Bush Doubles Down On ‘Defund The Police’ As Other Democrats Start To Panic About Crime

Rep. Cori Bush of Missouri is doubling down on the idea of defunding the police, even though other progressives have asked her not to.

Democrats are getting absolutely hammered on crime and they know it’s going to hurt them in the midterms.

Cori Bush doesn’t seem to care. She is a true believer of the left.

Axios reports:

Rep. Cori Bush isn’t backing down on “defund the police” slogan

Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.) says she’s not going to stop using the slogan “defund the police” ahead of this fall’s midterms — even though some of her colleagues have made that request.

Why it matters: Progressives — and that slogan specifically — were blamed for Democratic losses in 2020. The 2022 midterms are even more challenging, yet Bush said during an hourlong conversation with Black reporters that she’s sticking to her activist roots.

“I always tell [fellow Democrats], ‘If you all had fixed this before I got here, I wouldn’t have to say these things,'” she said.

Bush acknowledged her party needs to do a better job of explaining exactly what it means with its call to shift some law enforcement monies to preemptive social services.

If Democrats lose their House majority this November, Bush says she’ll blame their inability to pass crucial pieces of legislation upon which members campaigned a year ago.

“‘Defund the police’ is not the problem,” she added. “We dangled the carrot in front of people’s faces and said we can get it done and that Democrats deliver, when we haven’t totally delivered.”

It’s funny that the report refers to defund the police as a slogan. It’s not a slogan, it’s a policy.

Cori Bush seems to understand this.

Let Cori Bush keep calling for defunding police.

She is only helping Republicans.
