    Exclamation BLM Marxist wins primary in MO against long time dem rep Lacy Clay

    Progressive challenger Cori Bush upsets longtime incumbent Lacy Clay in Missouri Dem primary

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/lac...rimary-hfr-hfr

    Progressive challenger Cori Bush defeated longtime incumbent Rep. William Lacy Clay overnight in the high-profile Democratic primary in Missouri's 1st Congressional District -- a race that grabbed national attention as a party fixture and Congressional Black Caucus member battled a younger activist who came up through the Black Lives Matter movement.

    Bush's 48.9% to 45.5% victory is yet another win for Justice Democrats, the group that backed the successful primary challenges by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and educator Jamaal Bowman over powerful Democrat Reps. Joe Crowley, D-N.Y., in 2018 and Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., in June, respectively.

    “They counted us out,” Bush said after her Tuesday win. “They called me — I’m just the protester, I’m just the activist with no name, no title and no real money. That’s all they said that I was. But St. Louis showed up today.”

    The 10-term Clay was defending a seat that’s been represented by his family for more than half a century. The incumbent succeeded his father – the late Rep. William Clay Sr. – who held the St. Louis-area seat for more than 30 years and was one of the founders of the Congressional Black Caucus.

    50/50 on this. Glad that a 10 term was ousted. Not glad about the replacement.

    As for what they plan to do well isn't it clear? they are going to abolish the police stations, prisons and make whites to pay the black communities.

    As for the flag:

    The Pan-African flag—also known as the Afro-American flag, Black Liberation flag, UNIA flag and various other names—is a tri-color flag consisting of three equal horizontal bands of red, black and green.

    In NBC news this is being reported as historic event and Cori Bush will be the first African-American Woman Rep. from MO.
    Apparently she is a homeless person turned BLM social justice leader, so she very likey going to be way more radical socialist than current GOP-Progressive Socialist wing. Could change once she gets taste of power, time will tell.

    On a related note, democrats CB's and Tlaib's wins today appear to be a setback for Israel lobby/AIPAC wing of Dems and a boost for more radical pro BDS wing of Dems. Defeat of permanent fixture/professional politician who lost in MO might be a win for anti-war factions too.

    This bipartisan legislation is an important victory against the BDS movement, which seeks to inflict and encourage economic harm on the State of Israel and its people,” said Rep. William Lacy Clay, D-Mo., in a statement. “My vote stands for the principle that no matter how divided our politics, the protection and support of our ally Israel is a bipartisan trust and should remain as such.”

    That would be direct donations. Who knows what special interests and PACs helped? For example, that video was made by this group. No wonder it seemed so professional.

    Yeah, I thought about South America or Central America but the politics is to unstable and often has commie undertones even in the best circumstances.
