Democrats prove every day that they aren’t the party of law and order. They would rather eulogize killers and rapists than protect Americans.
Democrat Rep. Cori Bush was put through the wringer for her shocking defense of this murderer.
Conservatives have known the Democrat party doesn’t care about stopping crime.
In fact, they’ve encouraged rioting and looting back in 2020 when they found it politically convenient.
Billions of dollars in damages and dozens of lives were lost in the Black Lives Matter riots – but at least it helped push their racist ideology.
Now Democrat Rep. Cori Bush is pushing an even more radical agenda by depending a sex-offending murderer.
Cori Bush, a member of the far-left “Squad,” said in a statement that Amber (previously “Scott”) McLaughlin, a biological man identifying as a transgender woman who was convicted of brutally raping and killing his ex-girlfriend, was “killed by state-sanctioned, inhumane capital punishment” after he was put to death by the state of Missouri.
The Democrat congresswoman said, “My heart is with her family and loved ones,” but she didn’t say anything about McLaughlin’s victims. “I yearn for the day when our society acknowledges that state-sanctioned murder will never achieve justice.”
Bush said that the death penalty is “archaic, barbaric, and cold-hearted.” He said this when he said that Republican Governor Mike Parson had “once again failed his mandate… to save lives.”
“[I]t destroys families and communities, and its abolition is long overdue…. We must not allow another life to be taken,” she stated.
Bush also said that the killer had a “traumatic childhood” and had ongoing “mental health issues.”
In a tweet on Wednesday, Bush stuck to what she has always said.
“3 days into 2023, Missouri has chosen to uphold violence over mercy,” she wrote. “Today, the state executed Amber McLaughlin, a trans woman, who was sentenced to death by a judge after a jury could not unanimously agree to impose that sentence.”

Capital punishment must be abolished.

“Capital punishment must be abolished,” she added.
McLaughlin, who called herself a transgender woman and had been convicted of raping a 14-year-old girl in 1992, was found guilty in 2003 of stalking, raping, and stabbing to death her ex-partner Beverly Guenther before “transitioning.” She was put to death by lethal injection late Tuesday.
Even though a jury found McLaughlin guilty of murder in 2006, they couldn’t agree on how to punish him.
McLaughlin, who was 49 years old, started calling herself “Amber” while she was on death row. She was the first transgender person in the United States to be put to death.
After McLaughlin was killed, Bush sent out a tweet about it. The tweet got a lot of negative feedback online.
“He raped and murdered his ex-girlfriend after stalking and terrorizing her,” wrote conservative writer and commentator Chad Felix Greene.

He was a convicted sex offender who raped a 14 year old girl when he was 19.

“He was a convicted sex offender who raped a 14 year old girl when he was 19,” he added. “He was not a victim.”
“The way you defend rapists and murderers yet act like someone trespassing in an open government building is the worst thing in the world will never cease to amaze me,” wrote one Twitter user.
“Sexually assaulted a child and murdered his ex girlfriend in cold blood. Then became ‘trans’ in prison precisely to try and work the hapless dupes like you for his benefit, precisely because he knows you types put these issues above the lives of girls and women,” wrote another.
“You are gross,” the user added.
“Her name was Beverly Guenther. Amber murdered her after stalking and terrifying her,” another user wrote. “Say her name.”

“This woman, a representative, is defending a murderer and a rapist,” wrote one Twitter user. “Let that sink in.”
“You have not one iota of care about the woman this MAN brutally raped and murdered,” wrote another. “You are a sick misogynist, Cori.”
“Stop protecting criminals, and start standing up for their victims,” another user wrote.
“He was a murdering rapist! I feel no sympathy for him, funny how dysphoria affects girls when they hit puberty but blokes when they enter the penal system,” wrote yet another.
“He was grifting you all and you fell for it! Your disturbing lack of judgment makes me question your fitness for congress,” the user added.
“You conveniently left out that he BRUTALLY raped and stabbed a woman to death, Cori,” one user noted.
“Your statement makes you either ignorant or complicit with MEN who rape and kill women,” the user added. “Which is it?”
“He beat his GF, she worked up the courage to leave him & charge him. He then stalked & harassed her before brutally murdering her 1 day before court date,” wrote another user. “After that, he raped her corpse as 1 final humiliation for daring to stand up to him.”
“Who cares if he became a Tranzez later,” the user added.
Bush and Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) sent a letter to Missouri Governor Mike Parson last week asking him to stop the execution of McLaughlin by giving him clemency.
The request was denied.
Bush is the first black person from Missouri to be elected to Congress. She is on the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees and is the Deputy Whip for the Progressive Caucus.
She has fought against the federal death penalty for a long time.
In 2021, Bush was criticized for telling her supporters to “say the names” of 13 people who were executed during President Donald Trump’s four years in office. One of these people was a white supremacist who had been convicted of killing an Arkansas family in 1996.
Bush was criticized Wednesday for saying that black Republican Byron Donalds is a “prop” who will push “white supremacy” as a member of Congress.
