Cori Bush Faces Backlash For Fourth Of July Tweet

Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) was slammed on social media after she attacked the U.S. on Independence Day in a tweet, demanding “reparations” payments for Black People.

Many on the far left took to social media on the Fourth of July to attack the U.S. for a variety of reasons. Bush used the occasion to demand that White Americans who never owned slaves pay reparations to Black Americans who were never enslaved — while also attacking the Declaration of Independence and the Founding Fathers.

“The Declaration of Independence was written by enslavers and didn’t recognize Black people as human,” the far-left congresswoman claimed. “Today is a great day to demand Reparations Now.”

Her tweet came amid a continued push in deep-blue states like California to pay millions of dollars in reparations to Black people, while Bush continues to push for reparations at a national level.

Meanwhile, social media users were outraged over her comments — especially because of the timing of the tweet.

“Don’t you think more than enough white people paid for it with their blood during the Civil War?” asked commentator Ian Miles Cheong.

“You’re gonna need reparations for this ratio,” responded Jeremy Redfern, press secretary for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R).

“I will personally out of my own bank account pay for a raft to send you on a one-way trip to Cuba where you can enjoy the Marxism you so crave. Win-win for all of us,” conservative commentator Benny Johnson tweeted.

“This is rubbish. Cori has no knowledge of what the framers did or didn’t believe evidently or what their efforts were. She should understand why people like Frederick Douglass honored and revered them,” replied Chris Loesch, husband of Second Amendment activist Dana Loesch.

“People like Cori Bush could never build anything as great as what she’s trying to destroy,” political strategist Ryan Girdusky commented.

“Of the 56, 11 signers were guilty of enslaving others. Jefferson’s clause about the need to abolish slavery was removed from the document in order to appease the colonies that backed the practice. Adams, Franklin, and 2 others were abolitionists,” Libby Emmons, editor-in-chief of The Post Millennial, tweeted.

Bush has been demanding reparations since she first took office in 2021. In May of this year, she introduced a resolution to give $14 trillion in reparations payments to Black Americans.

The resolution claimed that the United States “has a moral and legal obligation to provide reparations for the enslavement of Africans and its lasting harm on the lives of millions of Black people” in the country.
