Daniel Greenfield, Socialists have adopted the privatization model of eliminating public services that they inveigh against.
Rep. Cori Bush’s tantrum is everything you expect from the AOC millenial style of narcissistic politics, hysterical outrage, claims of great personal suffering, and hollow posturing intended for social media.
“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,” Rep. Cori Bush ranted.
Whom do ordinary people turn to when the crackheads and criminals that socialists have turned over major cities to make attempts on their lives?
Not the police. Go call a social worker.
Rep. Cori Bush isn’t paying social workers $70K. Like all leftists, she wants to eliminate the police as a public service and privatize it so only people like her can afford it.
From AOC hiring a Blackwater guy, to Rep. Bush spending $70K, police defunding is really police privatization.
Rep. Bush argues that what she’s doing is so important for the leftist cause that it’s okay to pay for private police to protect her so the cause can go forward.
“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. So either I spend $70,000 on private security over the last few months, and I’m here standing now, and able to speak, able to help save 11 million people from being evicted, or I could possibly have a death attempt on my life,” she ranted.
If you criticize Rep. Cori Bush for her hypocrisy, you want to see her die. If you expect her to depend on the same public services that she’s depriving others of, you want to see her die.
And her cause is so important, with 11 million people’s lives on the line, that it justifies her security arrangements. That’s the line used by every cult leader who has to explain why he’s living in style while his followers are told to reject materialism by subsisting on uncooked barley.
“I have private security because my body is worth being on the planet right now,” Rep. Cori Bush raves.
Everyone who needs the police and can’t afford to spend $70K on private security, their bodies aren’t “worth being on the planet.”
Cori Bush’s life is much more important than yours.
