Cori Bush (D-MO) went on a rant yesterday. She complained strenuously about the United States of America.
When they say that the 4th of July is about American freedom, remember this: the freedom they’re referring to is for white people.
This land is stolen land and Black people still aren’t free.

Cori Bush has a net worth somewhere between $400,000 and $2 million. She has been an RN, a pastor and a faith healer. She allegedly was healed of COVID by a “Nigerian-born religious and leadership guru” during a 30 minute phone call. She was elected to Congress in 2020 and then aligned herself with the “Squad.” She makes $174,000 per year. That sounds a lot like freedom to me.
She says America is a “racist AF.”
She got a considerable amount of pushback.
- “Black people aren’t free? Your district hasn’t had a white representative in over 50 years. You, a black woman, went from being a nurse to being elected to one of the highest offices in the country. How much more freedom are you looking for?” one person pointed out.
- “‘I’m so oppressed’ says the black congresswoman who makes $174,000 a year,” one person mocked.
- “You’re an elected member of the United States House of Representatives. You’re not only free, you’re one of the privileged. Have some self awareness,” Washington Examiner editor Jay Caruso said.
This incendiary and false rhetoric does not help anyone or anything. It will do nothing to improve race relations but will only harden people further. But then, what is the problem? She seems oblivious to reality. She has money, privilege, a place in Congress, and can make ridiculous and racist remarks without consequence.
Cori Bush is more free than am I. I don’t even know a faith healer.
