Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., issued a strong rebuke of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democratic leadership for their statement calling out fellow Squad member Rep. Ilhan Omar for her comments involving Israel.
“Freedom of speech doesn’t exist for Muslim women in Congress,” Tlaib tweeted Thursday shortly after Pelosi and Democratic leaders issued a statement critical of Omar. “The benefit of the doubt doesn’t exist for Muslim women in Congress. House Democratic leadership should be ashamed of its relentless, exclusive tone policing of Congresswomen of color.”
Tlaib and Omar were the first Muslim women elected to Congress in 2018 and, along with other members of the progressive Squad, have been more critical of Israel, especially during the recent 11-day conflict with Hamas that left more than 250 dead, the vast majority Palestinians.
The Squad rallied around Omar Thursday as fellow Democrats, including House leadership, have lined up to condemn Omar for comments they perceived as comparing U.S. and Israeli “war crimes” to actions by the Taliban and Hamas.
Pelosi and senior Democratic leaders issued a unified statement Thursday, denouncing Omar’s comments.
“[T]here is no moral equivalency between the U.S. and Israel and Hamas and the Taliban,” the Democratic leaders said Thursday.
The Democratic leadership said they “welcome” the “clarification” Omar released earlier in the day after the Minnesota Democrat was met with a flood of criticism.
“To be clear: the conversation was about accountability for specific incidents regarding those ICC (International Criminal Court) cases, not a moral comparison between Hamas and the Taliban and the U.S. and Israel,” Omar said Thursday of her remarks.
“I was in no way equating terrorist organizations with democratic countries with well-established judicial systems,” she added.
The immense backlash came after the congresswoman questioned Secretary of State Antony Blinken during a House Foreign Affairs Committee about ICC investigations into U.S. and Israeli actions in Afghanistan and the Palestinian territories.
She later posted a tweet of their exchange and said, “We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban. I asked @SecBlinken where people are supposed to go for justice.”
A group of Democrats pounced on her comments as “offensive” and “misguided.”
Omar initially defended her statements as asking legitimate questions about how war crime victims can get justice and called out her colleagues for piling on.
“It’s shameful for colleagues who call me when they need my support to now put out a statement asking for ‘clarification’ and not just call,” Omar said in a tweet early Thursday before her clarifying statement. “The islamophobic tropes in this statement are offensive. The constant harassment & silencing from the signers of this letter is unbearable.”
The House Progressive Caucus also came to Omar’s defense decrying how “a Black, Muslim woman in Congress” is routinely attacked and saying fellow Democrats should not “abet or amplify such divisive and bad-faith tactics.”
A short while back, Rep. Tlaib advocated for the BDS Movement from the Floor of the House of Representatives.
So what is BDS?
Per their website bdsmovement.net,
Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) is a Palestinian-led movement for freedom, justice and equality. BDS upholds the simple principle that Palestinians are entitled to the same rights as the rest of humanity.
Israel is occupying and colonising Palestinian land, discriminating against Palestinian citizens of Israel and denying Palestinian refugees the right to return to their homes. Inspired by the South African anti-apartheid movement, the BDS call urges action to pressure Israel to comply with international law.
BDS is now a vibrant global movement made up of unions, academic associations, churches and grassroots movements across the world. Thirteen years since its launch, BDS is having a major impact and is effectively challenging international support for Israeli apartheid and settler-colonialism.
Rep. Talib said this in May of 2019….
“There’s always kind of a calming feeling, I tell folks, when I think of the Holocaust, and the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the fact that it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways, have been wiped out, and some people’s passports,” Tlaib said on the podcast’s most recent episode, published Friday. “And, just all of it was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews, post-the Holocaust, post-the tragedy and the horrific persecution of Jews across the world at that time. And, I love the fact that it was my ancestors that provided that, right, in many ways, but they did it in a way that took their human dignity away and it was forced on them.”
In case you do not remember, the night that Rep. Tlaib was sworn in as a member of the 116th Congress, she was videotaped vowing to impeach Former President Trump. This was shortly after she penned an op-ed for The Detroit Free Press outlining the case for impeachment.
The video showed Tlaib telling supporters.
“People love you and you win. And when your son looks at you and says: ‘Momma, look you won. Bullies don’t win.’ And I said, ‘Baby, they don’t, because we’re gonna go in there and we’re gonna impeach the motherf***er.’”
Tlaib is a Black Muslim, born in America to parents of Palestinian descent.
As I have been writing over the last 11 years, Liberals are nothing if not predictable.
They view everything in terms of politics and race, not necessarily in that order.
For years now, I have referred to the intolerant political ideology of Modern American Liberals as “The New Fascism” because of their intolerance toward traditional Americans Faith and Values, including our relationship with our closest ally, Israel, since their birth as a country in 1948.
What we are seeing now, as regards the rampant anti-Semitism in the Far Left Democratic Party, which began under Former President Barack Hussein Obama, is a result of an amalgamation of the political philosophies of the special interest groups who have replaced average Americans as the Democrats’ Voting Base.
Anti-Semitism is the norm in Marxism in all of its forms, including “Democratic Socialism”.
Anti-Semitic groups tend to gravitate toward each other finding solace and kindred spirits in their shared hatred of the Jewish people.
For those of you who are old enough to have actually studied history before the Liberals started revising it, the world has bore witness to this phenomena before.
A socialist political party in a developed nation joined forces with Islamists before, based on their mutual hatred of Jews.
You may remember this. They were the National Socialist Party of Germany, otherwise known as the Nazis.
They caused the mass extermination of millions of innocent European Jews, the Holocaust which gives Congresswoman Tlaib “a calming feeling”.
The political philosophies which the Modern Democrats are now embracing are the anti-thesis of whom they claim to be.
Average Americans are not fooled by the “Unity” Rhetoric spewed by Joe Biden and the Far Left Democrats..
Heck, they can not even keep their own political party unified.
Those who hate Americans, simply because they are Jewish, like those who hate the nation of Israel for the same reason, have already gone on record.
Those on the Left Side of the Political Spectrum bear the responsibility for the anti-Semitic violence which has plagued New York City and is beginning to rear its ugly head in other cities, as well,.
Unfortunately, all we are hearing from their leaders is support for a “country” which never existed.
