(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – While the ultra-far-left Squad members are busy competing at “Who’s More Anti-American and Anti-Semitic,” one of them has just been challenged for her congressional seat by a prominent Democrat prosecutor outraged by her attacks on victimized US ally Israel.
Wesley Bell, the St. Louis County prosecutor, made a significant political move by announcing his intent to contend for the House seat currently held by Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO).
Until now, Bell, 48, had intended to vie for the seat of US Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO), a bid considered a long shot, National Review reports.
The St. Louis prosecutor said his decision to challenge Cori Bush was largely influenced by the need for America to bolster its support for democratic nations like Ukraine and Israel.
In a speech, Bell highlighted the crucial juncture the world finds itself in, requiring strong leadership both domestically and internationally.
“Understand this unique place that we are with the world literally on fire. I think that we need to make certain that we are providing that effective leadership, not only in our district but in DC and on the world stage,” Bell declared.
Bush has faced scrutiny from both Democratic and Republican circles for her outspoken criticism of Israel.
She recently condemned the Jewish State even though on October 7, Israel was victimized by Palestinian Islamist terrorists who invaded it and slaughtered over 1,400 people, including 30 Americans.
“We can’t be silent about Israel’s ethnic cleansing campaign. Babies, dead. Pregnant women, dead. Elderly, dead. Generations of families, dead. Millions of people in Gaza with nowhere to go being slaughtered. The US must stop funding these atrocities against Palestinians,” Bush posted on X.
Bush was one of the ten Congress members who opposed a resolution in support of Israel following deadly Hamas attacks that resulted in approximately 1,400 Israeli casualties.
Both Bell and Bush rose to political prominence following the 2014 Ferguson protests, which erupted after the fatal shooting of Michael Brown, a young black man, by Darren Wilson, a white police officer. Wilson was subsequently cleared of wrongdoing by both St. Louis County and the US Justice Department.
“[It is] disheartening that Prosecuting Attorney Bell has decided to abandon his US Senate campaign to become Missouri’s first Black Senator after less than five months, and has instead decided to target Missouri’s first Black Congresswoman,” Bush’s office reacted.
