As the Kyle Rittenhouse trial nears an end radical Democrats are already attempting to push false narratives to paint the trial as a black versus white issue. Progressive House Dem. Cori Bush is no different and made a questionable comparison on Twitter between a Rittenhouse acquittal and events during anti-police protests in Ferguson, Missouri, seven years ago.
Bush claimed that white supremacists shot at protestors during Ferguson protests, following the police killing of Michael Brown Jr.
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.

The Washington Examiner reports:
“Not that I’m aware of,” he told the newspaper in reference to the tweet. McCall became the Ferguson police chief in July and was previously chief of the nearby Berkeley Police Department.
Bush has called for the conviction of Rittenhouse since the Kenosha shootings in summer 2020 when he was 17. Rittenhouse testified he acted in self-defense, while prosecutors said he instigated conflict as a “wannabe soldier” who was “looking for trouble.”
Rep. Bush’s fake news was widely panned online which critics accusing her of attempting to incite riots after the Rittenhouse trial and calling her out for her lies.
This is false and ignominious. Your colleagues should condemn you. Jeffrey Williams was arrested, charged & convicted for that shooting during the protest/riots. He was aiming at police & shot two officers. pic.twitter.com/qIx0qsxcyX

"Despite the evidence, we should convict someone of murder based upon something that didn't happen 7 years ago."
Okay…got it, sounds legit to me.
