Ferguson Police Chief Says He Is Not Aware of Any White Supremacists Who Shot At Cori Bush, Despite Democrat’s Bizarre Claim
Frank McCall Jr., the police chief in Ferguson, Missouri, said “None that I’m aware of” when asked if there were any recorded instances of white supremacists opening fire during the Ferguson racial protests several years ago in the manner described by Democrat Congresswoman Cori Bush. McCall Jr.’s quote was published by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Bush made a bizarre claim that she was shot at by “white supremacists” and her press shop wouldn’t even walk back the hysterical claim.
Cori Bush stated on Twitter: “When we marched in Ferguson, white supremacists would hide behind a hill near where Michael Brown Jr. was murdered and shoot at us. They never faced consequences. If Kyle Rittenhouse gets acquitted, it tells them that even 7 years later they still can get away with it.”
Cori Bush’s campaign spokesperson actually doubled down on the claim, stating, “While on the frontlines of the Ferguson Uprising, Congresswoman Bush and other activists were shot at by white supremacist vigilantes. The question we need to ask is why white supremacists feel empowered to open-carry rifles, incite violence, and put Black lives at risk across our country.”
