“Squad member” and Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.) could very well be the far Left’s next poster child based on her collected beliefs. She believes, for example, the debate over whether critical race theory should be taught in America’s schools is over. Those who disagree, she wrote on Twitter, are racists:

Bush also believes, as she stated on the Fourth of July, that the annual celebration of the nation’s independence from a tyrannical overlord is “for white people” only, adding, “This land is stolen land and Black people still aren’t free.”

The tweet generated considerable feedback. Several respondents pointed out blacks have achieved the highest stations of American governance, including president, Supreme Court justice, and Bush herself:

Some of Bush’s defenders countered with observations like this one.

But the presumption that there has been one black president in 250 years is racist is is absurd on its face. There have been zero Jewish presidents throughout the entire history of the nation, so does that provide evidence that the U.S. is fundamentally anti-Semitic?

Still other commenters took Bush to task over the “stolen land” assertion in her tweet:

Sadly, Bush’s comment will sow antipathy and incite resentment toward the country among members of the very group she is trying to help. The House needs to censure her for her thoughtless words.
