Democrat Cori Bush Vows to Double Down on ‘Defund the Police’ Through Midterms

Democrat Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) just handed a huge gift to the Republican Party by vowing to continue her push to “defund the police” throughout the midterm elections.

The Missouri congresswoman is doubling down on the anti-police narrative, despite requests from the Democratic Party to stop pushing the politically toxic messaging.

Bush, a former Black Lives Matter leader, went on record with a warning to her fellow Democrats that she will not stop promoting the “defund the police” movement.

The anti-law enforcement slogan was largely responsible for huge spikes in violent crime in Democrat-controlled cities that slashed their police budgets.

As crime continues to spiral out of control in Democrat-run cities, a continued push of the anti-police sentiment will surely lead to losses in safe blue seats.

Bush said: “I always tell fellow Democrats, ‘If you all had fixed this before I got here, I wouldn’t have to say these things.’

“‘Defund the police’ is not the problem,” she claimed.

“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.

“If Republicans take the majority, it’s just done as far as trying to get the legislation across.”

Bush was asked if Democrats are telling her to stop using the slogan so they stand a chance in the 2022 midterms.

“Oh, absolutely,” she said.

“I’ve had colleagues walk up to me and say that ‘defund the police’ doesn’t help in their districts.

“If we couldn’t get George Floyd done back when millions of people were marching in the street, then how do we expect to get more than one thing done on policing over the next few years,” she said about breaking up the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act into smaller pieces that can pass it easier.
