WATCH: Rashida Tlaib Is In Trouble For Anti-Semitism AGAIN
The new far left Democratic freshman are really making a name for themselves. And not in a good way.
Just this past week, you had Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) with her debacle, the Green New Deal, that was mocked so much they pulled the FAQ off her website and then claimed it was a “draft” that had been mistakenly uploaded (and mistakenly sent to news agencies).
Then Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) called for defunding the DHS and made an anti-Semitic comment that drew the ire of both sides of the aisle.
Now comes some more troubling news about Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).
If you’ll recall, she’s the freshman Rep. known for saying about President Donald Trump to an audience that we should “impeach the mother**cker.”
From Daily Caller:
Rep. Rashida Tlaib in 2006 wrote an op-ed column for Final Call, a Nation of Islam publication founded by Louis Farrakhan, in the latest tie to emerge between the congresswoman and anti-Semitic figures.
Tlaib authored the column in 2006, while working as the advocacy coordinator for the Arab Community Center for Economic and Social Services (ACCESS), two years before she first won election to the state legislature. Tlaib was described as a “guest columnist” in the article, which argued against deporting immigrants found guilty of “minor offenses.”
Final Call describes itself as “the official communications organ of the Nation of Islam” and was founded by the group’s leader, Farrakhan, according to Final Call’s website.
Farrakhan’s history of unapologetic anti-Semitism including describing Jews as “satanic” and praising Hitler as a “very great man,” was well established by 2006.
Tlaib has not responded to request for response on the issue.
Tlaib has already come under fire for her ties to other anti-Israel radicals including her key fundraiser Abdel-qader Maher, who promotes anti-Semitic conspiracy theories on Facebook and Palestinian activist Abbas Hamideh, who attended her swearing in, supports Hezbollah and believes Israel shouldn’t exist. Tlaib denied knowing Hamideh.
Linda Sarsour is also one of her supporters and attended the swearing in.
