Who is Rep. rashida tlaib (D-MI)?
I know our media have celebrated her as a courageous “woman of color”, virtually immune to all criticism (unless you like being called a racist and misogynist, that is). But, actually, there is a little more there.
Carl Horowitz, writing for townhall.com, has written an excellent commentary on the real rashida tlaib – the one media somehow keep neglecting to tell us about.
I thought you might be interested to see it, so here’s the link … and here are just the first two paragraphs:
Lost amid the uproar over President Trump’s rebuke of four radical “women of color” in the House of Representatives is the possibility that he was entirely justified. For months, these freshmen lawmakers, hyped by the media, have used their office to undermine enforcement of our nation’s laws, especially those related to immigration, labeling anyone who disagrees with them as a “racist.” One of these pugilists, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., stands out as an especially nasty piece of work.
A lawyer by training, Tlaib, born in 1976, occupies the Detroit-area congressional seat held for decades by John Conyers. Like the other three members of her vapid, publicity-hungry “squad” – Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) – she makes no secret of her loathing for America’s identity and laws. Indeed, as a Muslim born to Palestinian parents, Tlaib proudly identifies with their foreign identity. “I’m more Palestinian in the halls of Congress than I am anywhere in the country, in the world,” she declared before the Michigan Coalition for Human Rights this April. Ironically, she’s quick to hurl the charge of “dual loyalty” at Capitol Hill colleagues, Jewish or otherwise, who express support for Israel. She has been especially supportive of Boycott, Disinvestment and Sanctions (BDS), a worldwide movement whose aim is the economic isolation and destruction of Israel.
Here’s a question for you: if a member of the House of Representatives tells us that “I’m more Palestinian in the halls of Congress than I am anywhere in the country, in the world”, is it unfair to ask “Then why are you here? Why are you representing a congressional district in the United States? Why don’t you go there instead”?
To most of our media, and to the current incarnation of our Democrat Party, the answer seems to be that, yes, it is unfair, and anyone who asks it is a racist, misogynistic pig.
You’ll pardon me if I don’t join the amen chorus.
