Who Does Rashida Tlaib Represent?

The Hebrew word for “evil person” is “Rasha,” and unfortunately the United States Congress has a new one in town.

Her name is Rashida Tlaib, and she is the newly elected representative of the Michigan’s 13th Congressional district.

Here she is at a MoveOn.org event, January 3, 2018. Keep in mind this is her first day in office as a member of the U.S. Congress.
“People love you, and you win,” says Tlaib. “And when your son looks at you and says ‘Mama 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.”

The issue here is not that Tlaib cursed the President.

It is that Tlaib is whipping up the crowd to remove the President from office for no reason.

For this, Rashida Tlaib is guilty of sedition.

Tlaib is not just a seditious traitor. She is also a raging anti-Semite who is here representing the Palestinian Authority, and not the United States.

How do we know this?

On August 11, 2018, at an event to celebrate Tlaib’s win in the primary, journalist Laura Loomer asked Tlaib the following question:

“Are you willing to admit…that Hamas is a terrorist organization?”

In response, Tlaib (who states that she is anti-bullying), not only refuses to respond, but physically attacks Loomer, grabbing the journalist’s recording device and forcing her to physically retrieve it.

On January 6, three days after her “attack in a crowded theater” against President Trump, Tlaib unleashed another anti-Semitic tirade on Twitter, accusing American Jews of having dual loyalty, stating that Jews “forgot what country they represent.”

The context for Tlaib’s comment was Senator Bernie Sanders’ comment that legislation to reopen the government should not be held up by legislation to stop the economic terrorism levied by Palestinian interests against Israel, America’s military and strategic partner in the Middle East.

It should be noted that Senator Sanders is Jewish and that Jews of conscience may argue any which way about any legislation they so choose. Indeed, there are Jews who support the boycott.

The issue is that Tlaib, in her support for this movement (note: it’s not about censorship) is acting as an agent of the Palestinian people.
“Michigan Rep.-elect Rashida Tlaib and Minnesota Rep.-elect Ilhan Omar both made history during the 2018 midterm elections by becoming the first Muslim women elected to Congress — but they didn’t stop there. Tlaib and Omar both also publicly support Palestine through the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions movement, which, according to The Hill, marks a first for congressional officials.
To make your concerns known, you can file an ethics complaint with the United States House of Representatives.
