(PartiallyPolitics.com) – On Monday, Democratic Rep. Cori Bush (Missouri) set off an online frenzy when she introduced legislation that commemorates Michael Brown, who died at police hands in 2014, sparking riots.

Taking to social media, Bush wrote that Brown would be turning 28 had his life not been “taken by a Ferguson police officer.”

She stated that in Brown’s “honor and alongside his mother,” she had reintroduced the Helping Families Heal Act, also called the Mike Brown Bill. 

In a video that accompanied the announcement, Bush mourned Brown’s passing, stating that the bill would assist families dealing with “police violence,” concluding by wishing Brown a happy birthday and stating “rest in power.”

After Brown was fatally shot by Officer Darren Wilson, witnesses claimed Brown had his hands up at the time of the shooting.

These statements led to the slogan “Hands up, don’t shoot,” being chanted at protests across the country.

However, further investigation, including by the Department of Justice under the Obama Administration, corroborated Officer Wilson’s account of shooting Brown in self-defense.

In response to Bush’s announcement, many conservative commentators chose to educate the progressive Democrat about the truth of the events that led to Brown’s passing.

Stephen L. Miller, contributing editor of The Spectator, noted that Brown had “shoplifted from a bodega” and held an employee in a choke hold when they tried to intervene.

Chris Loesch, another conservative commentator, accused Bush of “grifting” off of Brown’s death, which he stated should be used to train others “how not to act.”

Chad Felix Greene replied to Bush’s announcement by stating that Bush knew she was “lying,” but had to keep going because it established her “political career” and helped her pursue her “social agenda.”
