Democrats in the highest offices aren’t willing to support their own government.
Their anti-American attitude is disgraceful.
A top Democrat put herself in an embarrassing situation with an awful accusation.
Far-left Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO)who is a member of the progressive “squad” claimed on the Fourth of July that black people in America aren’t free.
“When they say that the 4th of July is about American freedom, remember this: the freedom they’re referring to is for white people.” Bush tweeted. “This land is stolen land and Black people still aren’t free.”
She added: “We know what our own freedom looks like. End the slavery permitted under the 13th amendment. End the War on Drugs. End police violence. End health care, housing, and education apartheid.”
“WE are the experts on our own liberation. And we won’t stop until it’s won.” She concluded.
Texas Senator Ted Cruz responded to Bush’s tweet saying that her words were “hateful, divisive lies.”
“The Left hates America. Believe them when they tell you this.” Cruz wrote.
The senator then quoted abolitionist Frederick Douglass and compare his “hope, optimism, passion for justice, and unifying call for America to live up to her grand ideals with the ‘Squad’s’ angry, hateful, consistently anti-American venom.”
Rep. Byron Donalds (R-Fla.), an African-American Republican congressman, said he felt Bush’s tweet was “outlandish,” adding he didn’t think the most of the black community would agreed with her opinion.
“First of all, yes, July 4, Independence Day, is to celebrate the freedom of this nation from British tyranny. That is the purpose of the celebration. We should all celebrate that. Number two, black people are free in America. That is what has happened since 1865. That is the state of play in 2021 America. So, I look at her tweet, I shake my head, I don’t agree, and to be truthful, most black people just don’t agree with that. And most people don’t agree with that.” he said during an appearance on Fox News.
Many notable black people also blasted Bush’s remarks.
Darrell B. Harrison, podcast host responded on Twitter: “Cori Bush is an angry black woman—a very angry black woman. Her anger is eating her alive from the inside out. I pity her because the ‘freedom’ she seeks is not the freedom she needs. As such, freedom will continue to evade her as long as she carries that anger within her heart.”
Thomas Chatterton Williams, a writer, said, “I’m a 40-year-old American descendent of slaves. The year is 2021, and I have been ‘free’ my entire life. Another thought: Who is the ‘they’ in this construction? The implication is that black people (and presumably other non-whites) uniformly feel alienated from such notions of freedom. This would shock Ralph Ellison, Albert Murray, Stanley Crouch, and countless anonymous others.”
