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.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Ferguson Police Chief Frank McCall Jr. told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch he does not know of any record of such an incident taking place.

“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.
