Missouri Representative Cori Bush gave a speech on the House floor Thursday where she praised Bassem Masri, a BLM activist who has publicly called for the death of police officers.
In her speech, Bush compared the crisis between Israel and Palestine to the shooting of Michael Brown in 2014, Blaze Media reports.
“As a Palestinian, he was ready to resist, to rebel, to rise up with us as our St. Louis community mourned Mike Brown, Jr.’s state-sanctioned murder, and as we demanded an end to the militarized police occupation of our communities,” Bush said. “Palestinians know what state violence, militarized policing, and occupation of their communities look like.”
She said Marsi and many others showed up in Ferguson in 2014.
“So when heavily militarized police forces showed up in Ferguson in 2014, Bassem and so many others of our St. Louis Palestinian community, our Palestinian siblings showed up too,” the representative said.
The Blaze reports that Bush yelled “Coward straight pig out here b****! You gotta go. Your life is in danger homie,” to a cop in 2014 and has posted threatening slogans online.
He told officers to their faces that “I’m praying for your death and your death and your death and your death,” the Blaze reports.
The news organization dug up old tweets from the BLM activist.

BLM co-founder used funds to pay sister, mother, brother and child’s father
Released tax filings show just how Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors spent the millions of dollars raised from “White guilt.” She paid roughly $970,000 to the company of her child’s father to help “produce live events” and other “creative services.”
Over $840,000 was paid to her brother, Paul Cullors, for security services. Daily Mail wrote that “leaders have attempted to justify” the expenses to her brother by saying the “foundation’s protection could not be entrusted to former police professionals who typically run security firms because the BLM movement is known for vehemently protesting law enforcement organizations.”
It was recently disclosed that she bought a $6 million mansion in L.A. for the organization, and denied she took money from BLM for personal matters, although shortly after it was unearthed that she had used the mansion for her own parties.
Cullors also reportedly “reimbursed BLM $73,523 for a charter flight for foundation-related travel, which the organization says she took in 2021 out of concern for COVID-19 and security threats.”
Cullors resigned last year from the organization due to criticism of her finances, such as purchasing multiple homes for herself that cost millions of dollars combined. She also admitted the charity was paying for “employment” of her sister, mother, and brother.
Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation Inc revealed from July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021, it ended the fiscal year with nearly $42 million in net assets. “The foundation invested $32 million in stocks from the $90 million it received as donations amid racial justice protests in 2020” adds Daily Mail.
