Rep. Rashida Tlaib, Democrat of Michigan, is a personally and politically reprehensible person. Her rabid antisemitism and her other loony socialist opinions make her well qualified for the Squad and the Democrat Party. But Tlaib recently covered herself in slime even by the most vile of standards. She called for the outright extermination of Israel and the wholesale massacre of an American ally, not to mention the murder of millions of innocent Israelis.
FNC picks up the story: “On Sunday, Tlaib commemorated the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People in part by retweeting an illustration posted by Palestinian-American activist Rasha Mubarak.’From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,’ Mubarak captioned the tweet.” In other words she echoed the cries of Arab despots since 1948, “Drive the Jews into the sea.”

FNC: “That pro-Palestinian saying has long been interpreted and criticized as a call for the elimination of the Jewish state. Last month, Tlaib was accused of anti-Semitism for immediately invoking Israeli policy after it was reported that President-elect Biden was selecting Antony Blinken, who is Jewish, as his secretary of state. In 2019, Tlaib raised eyebrows after describing the ‘calm feeling’ she experienced when thinking about the Holocaust.”
On Monday, the pro-Israel group Democratic Majority for Israel shared a screenshot of Tlaib’s retweet and slammed the crazed with hate congresswoman.
“@RashidaTlaib is not just opposed to Israeli control of the West Bank — this slogan means she sees the entire State of Israel as illegitimate and wants it eliminated. That’s an immoral and reprehensible position.”

Zionist activist Dr. Mark Goldfeder responded, “The House of Representatives should censure Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., for her continuing embrace of antisemitism and her calls for the destruction of Israel, the world’s only Jewish state. Congress should not be a forum for hate speech aimed at any religious, racial or ethnic group. While Tlaib’s target is the Jewish people today, it’s easy to imagine a different bigot in Congress targeting African Americans, Latinos, or another group with hateful comments in the future if Tlaib’s attacks on the Jewish people are not condemned on a bipartisan basis. It is beyond repulsive that a sitting member of Congress could retweet this to her followers without facing immediate bipartisan censure.” The good doctor is right. The Democrats, by their silence, expose the creepy crawly underbelly of their socialist ideology.
“It should be obvious that calling for the destruction of the world’s lone Jewish state — along with the ethnic cleansing and genocidal extermination of its millions of Jewish inhabitants — is antisemitic. To imagine that the state of Israel would go away without the wholesale killing of Jews is ridiculous. Tlaib deleted her hate-filled tweet fairly quickly, but this is not the first time she has engaged in clearly antisemitic behavior and gotten away with it. She has accused American lawmakers supportive of Israel of dual loyalty, defended terrorist attacks against a civilian population and revised history surrounding the Holocaust.” If she had said this against a PC protected group then the Democrats would be in high anxiety. But against Israel? Just par for the course for Democrats and some of their masochistic voters.
“And it has only been a few days since Tlaib expressed worry over President-elect Joe Biden’s pick of a Jewish American, Antony Blinken, as his nominee for secretary of state. While Tlaib certainly has a First Amendment right to make anti-Semitic comments, there needs to be an objective baseline standard for what members of Congress will tolerate without condemning such hatred.” Exactly. She has every right to spread her loathsome hate. Decent Americans, through the democratic process and public opinion, have every right to make her pay the serious consequences.
