Missouri Radical “Squad member Rep. Cori bush is being criticized for saying that “white supremacists” shot at her during Black Lives Matter.
Bush claimed that she marched in Ferguson in 2014 and that white supremacists would hide behind hills and “shoot at” us.
She added, “They never faced consequences.”
Bush stated that if Kyle Rittenhouse is acquitted it will send the message to white supremacists that they “can get away without consequences”.
Ferguson Police Chief Frank McCall Jr. denied knowing of any such incidents at that time.
“None that I’m aware of,” McCall Jr said.
According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, there is no evidence of the incident.
A spokesperson for Congresswoman Bush doubled down on the allegation, “While on the frontlines of the Ferguson Uprising, Congresswoman Bush and other activists were shot at by white supremacist vigilantes.”
“The question we need to ask is why white supremacists feel empowered to open-carry rifles, incite violence, and put black lives at risk across our country,” the spokesperson added.
Bush’s office did not provide any evidence about the alleged incident.
Bush’s claim has been criticized heavily on social media as many people are unsure that it actually happened.
Journalist Andy Ngo responded, “This is false and ignominious. Your colleagues should condemn you.”
“Jeffrey Williams was arrested, charged & convicted for that shooting during the protest/riots. He was aiming at police & shot two officers,” Ngo added.
