Black Lives Matter Activist Wins Congressional Race in Missouri
Democrat BLM activist Cori Bush wins seat in the House of Representatives
A Democrat Black Lives Matter activist has won her congressional race in Missouri to secure a seat in the House of Representatives.
Leftist Cori Bush soared to an election night victory to become the state’s first black congresswoman.
Bush won a staggering 84 percent of the vote in the state’s 1st Congressional District.
She has now been tipped to become the fifth member of AOC's “Squad” of radical-left Democrats.
“This is definitely a night to remember,” Bush told her supporters during her acceptance speech.
“This has been a historic day from the beginning to the end.”
Bush had the backing of the Justice Democrats, according to Fox News.
The well-funded socialist organization is the same that helped propel Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) to her first upset victory over 10-term incumbent Joe Crowley.
In her August Democratic primary, Bush had her own upset victory, defeating longtime incumbent, Missouri Rep. William Lacy Clay.
Bush got involved with the Black Lives Matter movement in 2014, when Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager, was shot and killed by a white police officer in Ferguson.
She joined the protests that erupted in the wake of the shooting.
She soon climbed the ladder of the Marxist group and began leading the protests in her Missouri district.
Bush has remained engaged in protest work ever since, getting heavily involved in the recent protests surrounding the murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor.
In August, prominent Marxist activist Angela Davis cheered on the recent Black Lives Matter protests, riots, and looting, warning the unrest is merely "rehearsals for revolution."
Longtime communist Davis warns that the violent BLM and Antifa demonstrations, that have been ravaging cities across America this year, are simply the early stages of a larger radical-left “revolution.”
She claims the unrest is needed to bring about lasting radical social and economic change.
Davis insists the Black Lives Matter riots and the “defund the police” movement represent a culmination of decades of radical left-wing activism.
Justice Democrats appear to be planning to build on their "Squad" of House activists, it seems.
