Cori Anika Bush (born July 21, 1976 (age 48)) (no relation to the Bush dynasty) is a nurse, pastor, and far-left anti-Semitic Democrat who ran for United States House of Representatives from Missouri's 1st congressional district in the 2020 elections. A single mother who had been a victim of domestic violence, sexual assault,[1] and was formerly homeless, Bush apparently believes the notion that progressivism lifts poor people out of poverty and into prosperity when such has not been proven to be the case.

Bush led the mob outside the home of Patricia and Mark McCloskey with a bullhorn screaming, "You can't stop the revolution!"[2] The McCloskey's were indicted by Soros prosecutor Kim Gardner for exercising their 2nd Amendment rights on their own property when they were assaulted and threatened by the mob of white Black Lives Matter terrorists.[3] Gardner was removed from the case for corruption, and in May 2021 Mark McCloskey announced his candidacy for the U.S. Senate.

A vociferous voice for defunding the police, Bush spent $35,000 for her own private security while exposing minority communities to crime, Antifa and BLM violence.[4]

She has called for defunding the Pentagon to allocate the money for social services.[5]

Cori Bush denigrated American values with a racist tweet on the Fourth of July 2021, calling it a holiday for white people and that blacks still aren't free.[6]

2020 U.S. House election in Missouri's 1st district

Bush announced in mid-2020 her run for the United States House of Representatives to challenge incumbent Lacy Clay, a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus who, according to the former, isn't left-wing enough.[7] She narrowly won the Democrat primary over Clay in a major upset,[8] and may become the fifth member of the Squad, as she easily won the general election in the highly liberal district.


Bush is an anti-Israel activist who supports the radical BDS movement.[9]

White supremacy

Bush has taken up the cause and shown sympathy for a white supremacist, Daniel Lewis Lee,[10] who was executed under federal law for the murder of a mother, father and their 8-year-old daughter in 1996.[11]

Misusing funds

In Jan 2024, Bush was under criminal investigation over misuse of funds.[12]

Hypocrisy & racism

Noted author (Jan 2023): 'Progressives like Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.) consistently exploit a racial loophole when they find it politically expedient.' Explaining in a piece Cori Bush, a liberal racist against Republicans ‘blacking wrong:'[13]

progressives like Bush actually cared about black people being used as props or tokens, she would have had a problem with Joe Biden wanting specifically a black woman to be his vice president before selecting Kamala Harris. She would have wagged her finger at Democratic pundits and strategists advocating a black female to take a Supreme Court Justice seat before Biden chose Ketanji Brown Jackson. Why aren’t they considered pawns or tokens?

Bush behaves much like many progressives who pretend their words come from a heartfelt place of caring when they’re actually a manifestation of their guttural disgust for a black face that occupies space on the opposite political wing.

In 2022, Cori Bush was under fire for fundraising with antisemitic "activist" Arab Muslim Naveen Ayesh of American Muslims for Palestine (AMP). She once said she wants to burn "every Israeli" alive.[14]

On Jan 31, 2024, this Cori Bush was the only one to align with Rashida Tlaib to vote against the bill banniing Palestinians carrying out the Oct 7 atrocities.[15][16]
