Shut up. You’re not worth more than me, lady.
Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) said the quiet part out loud: They matter. You do not.
A loudmouth from the Defund the Police movement thinks her life is worth more than your life.

She spent $70,000 in the past three months on private security. But that’s okay because she is so freaking important:
I’m going to make sure I have security because I know I have had attempts on my life. And I have too much work to do, there are too many people that need help right now for me to allow that. So if I end up spending $200,000, if I spend ten more dollars on it, you know what, I get to be here to do the work, so suck it up. And defunding the police has to happen. We need to defund the police and put that money into social safety nets.
“They would rather I die?” shrieked Bush. “You would rather me die? Is that what you want to see? You want to see me die? You know because that could be the alternative.”
You guys: “I have private security because my body is worth being on this planet right now.”
Of course, this is all a “white supremacist, racist narrative” behind all of this.
If you don’t have anything nice to say then don’t say it. I should not say anything about Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) right now.
How to combine out-of-touch high handedness with a commitment to a outlandishly radical and unpopular policy position in one 30-second clip—very impressive https://t.co/sXJz1JTZcv

She'll pay $200,000 for private security while pushing to defund police, but if you dare to carry a gun for your own protection, she'll call you a domestic terrorist. https://t.co/nmdJg2hO5c
