Rep. Bush fans the flames, claims ‘white supremacist’ Greene and others could be ‘conspiring against us’

U.S. Rep. Cori Bush threw a liberal tantrum over Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene not wearing a mask recently. In fact, the Democrat Squad member was so offended and incensed, she moved her office with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s help, citing in a fit of manufactured paranoia that Greene and other “white supremacist” House members might be “conspiring against us.”

Greene has been at the center of explosive accusations about Facebook posts that she or someone managing her account has made in the past. The left is using her confrontation of David Hogg over gun control as a weapon to bludgeon her with. Then she committed the unforgivable sins of not wearing a mask on the House floor or submitting to security screenings as she was commanded to do so by House leadership.



Enter MSNBC’s Joy Reid who is always willing to lend a sympathetic ear to those vilifying conservatives. On Friday’s “The ReidOut” she interviewed Bush who went on at length about Greene’s transgressions. The focus of Bush’s anger was an incident where Greene refused to wear a mask and videoed the exchange while doing so. The Missouri Democrat also went after Rep. Lauren Boebert over carrying a gun into the Capitol.

Bush tweeted on Friday that she had requested that her office be moved after an incident where Greene “came up from behind me, ranting loudly into her phone while not wearing a mask” before Greene’s colleagues allegedly shouted at her about Black Lives Matter. She also said the reason she was moving her office was for “my team’s safety.” She accused Greene and her staff of harassing her in the hallways and targeting her and others on social media.

It’s toward the end of the interview that the rhetoric gets even more inflammatory. Bush let loose on why she moved her office: “I’m here to do a job for the people of St Louis, they deserve that, and what I cannot do is continue to look over my shoulder wondering if a white supremacist in Congress by the name of Marjorie Taylor Greene, or anyone else because there are others, that they are doing something or conspiring against us,” Bush told Reid.

“Our focus has to be on St. Louis and the work that we can get done,” Bush added. “And also my team deserves better. They should not have to come to work and have to wonder if that door is going to open, that does not have a peephole, that that door is going to open and it’s somebody that does not want to do them well.”

Against extreme pressure to resign by the left, Greene is standing firm and will not quit. She claims it was Bush who ‘berated’ her.

“They are coming after me because I’m a threat to their goal of Socialism. They are coming after me because they know I represent the people, not the politicians,” Greene said. “They are coming after me because like President Trump, I will always defend conservative values. They want to take me out because I represent the people. And they absolutely hate it.”
