“Black girls are * very * acquainted with Marjorie Taylor Greene’s racism”: Activists assist Cori Bush

Taylor Greene said in a series of videos that Politico found out that the Jewish Democrat George Soros is a Nazi, Muslim citizens do not belong to the government and Blacks are “slaves of the Democratic Party”. “The silence of Cori Bush’s white counterparts in the face of Marjorie Taylor Greene’s racism is * very * familiar to black women. And it’s absolutely annoying,” Lewis said in another tweet.

Bush announced on Friday that she would move her offices after the racist “loudly and unmasked” addressed her. Bush said she repeatedly asked Taylor Greene to put on her mask and she berated Bush. Citing the racist stereotype that blacks are violent, a Taylor Greene employee called on Bush to “stop inciting violence with Black Lives Matter”.

On Jan. 13 – after members tested positive for COVID-19 after being locked up with her on Jan. 6 – Marjorie Taylor Greene came after me loudly and exposed. I called to her to put them on.

Bush, the first black woman to represent Missouri in Congress, ousted Rep. Lacy Clay, who had served Congress for 20 years advocating black people. She worked as a nurse during the Missouri riots following the death of Michael Brown on August 9, 2014 in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson. Brown, an 18-year-old black man, was shot and killed at least six times by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. Despite popular telling that Brown was suspected of robbing a grocery store, officials admitted they were unaware that Brown was a robbery suspect and had only prevented him from walking on the street.

“I didn’t move my office out of fear,” Bush said of Taylor Greene. “I moved my office because I’m here to do a job for the people of St. Louis.

“I can’t look over my shoulder and wonder if a white supremacist in Congress has conspired against me and my team. Our focus is on St. Louis. “

Nick Dyer, Greene’s spokesman, told CNN that he had evidence that Bush started the confrontation. “Rep. Bush is actually the instigator and it’s on tape. We’ll be releasing the video shortly, “he said. Taylor Greene posted the tape on Twitter on Friday. Except, it didn’t prove absolutely nothing. The video didn’t show Bush, but she was heard interrupting a maskless Taylor Greene for To tell her, “Follow the rules and put on a mask,” reported CNN. It’s not exactly an unreasonable request, given that the coronavirus pandemic hasn’t exempted lawmakers. Taylor Greene argued, however, that the rules weren’t for they should apply. “You know what? You shouldn’t bring COVID positive members here to spread COVID everywhere,” said Taylor Greene. She also told Bush not to yell and “stop being a hypocrite”. The footage contained no comments from Taylor Greene’s staff.

Activist Tamika Mallory tweeted on Saturday: “We don’t play through @CoriBush. We got her back yesterday, today, tomorrow and every day after. She is not alone and has her people with her.”

Mallory went on to say that She is tired of seeing black women as targets “who have to look behind our backs to protect us, our colleagues and our families from white people who cannot believe seeing us in our rightful place – positions of power. “

It is so interesting that many members of Congress and organizations spend days, weeks, sometimes months looking for essentially nothing to Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib and other progressive leaders, keeping silent about Marjorie Greene’s overt and outright racism and anti-Semitism.

Mallory said when black leaders were accused of anti-Semitism, “Dozens of Opinion contributions, statements, articles and thousands of tweets ”followed. “Marjorie Taylor Greene exposed the hypocrisy of some of these people,” added Mallory. “It was never really about fighting racism and anti-Semitism – it was about silencing progressive, powerful black voices. Couldn’t be clearer. “

We are still here, and we will always be on the front lines against the bigotry of people like Marjorie Taylor Greene who, as a member of Congress, actually affects people’s lives. Our fight against racism and bigotry is unconditional – we fight for each other.
