So inmates in St. Louis jails are now organizing their own social justice riots, apparently, and elected members of Congress who represent St. Louis are supporting this lawlessness.
The newest member of the radical congressional “Squad,” Black Lives Matter activist Cori Bush, is defending the inmates at a St. Louis justice center who attacked a corrections officer, freed several detainees, and proceeded to trash their unit.
This was all while local residents cheered outside, by the way.
“A riot is the language of the unheard.” – Dr. MLK Jr.
I want to talk to my constituents in the window. Their lives and their rights must be protected.
My team and I are working to ensure that the urgent needs of people who are incarcerated are not ignored. https://t.co/wMq8ecyLQ2

“I want to talk to my constituents in the window,” she tweeted, in reference to the inmates involved, who are being jailed in her district.
“Their lives and their rights must be protected. My team and I are working to ensure that the urgent needs of people who are incarcerated are not ignored,” she continued. Cori Bush is the embodiment of cultural rot.
This as St Louis recorded a historic level of gun homicides at 266 in 2020 and the fifth-highest homicide rate of 87 killings per 100,000, the highest since 1970. Bush doesn’t seem to care about those constituents. What the hell, they’re dead victims she must figure and cannot vote. Then again Democrats have figured out how to get dead people to vote.
She seems to have felt very differently about riots just a month ago, when both Black Lives Matter activists and sympathetic fringe militants incited the riot that President Donald Trump is now being blamed for.
This riot, of course, was apparently not the voice of the unheard, but dangerous radical terrorism.
I’m in the Capitol. I’m safe, and my team and I are sheltering in place.
The President of the United States has incited a riot that has now stormed the Capitol. There are rioters roaming the halls of the Capitol. I saw them with my own eyes.
Our country deserves better.

Among the “constituents” Bush is defending are men who have assaulted police officers, by the way, the very police officers who she no doubt would expect to keep her safe when she’s in her own district.
Amazing how quickly that standard changes whenever a politician has an incident of lawlessness to exploit for their own radical—and flimsily reasoned—agenda.
