Rashida Tlaib is one piece of work even before she went on a profane tirade asserting to a group of riled up followers that the new diverse Congress was going to “impeach that mother***er.” The mother***er in question is President Donald Trump. Even before she obtained notoriety for the rant, Tlaib was well-known in Michigan politics and among groups with ties to some nefarious dudes- namely, terrorists.
One of 14 children, Tlaib’s mother grew up on the West Bank near Ramallah and her father came from a Palestinian suburb of Jerusalem. Being one of 14 children, it becomes quite obvious that there was no nearby Planned Parenthood clinic. She was the 2008 Arab-American outreach coordinator for the Obama campaign which she then parlayed into a seat in the Michigan house of representatives in 2009.
This is where the fun begins for this particular species of liberal critter. No doubt, the endorsement from the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) helped her over the finish line in a district looking less and less like Michigan and more like Gaza. In fact, her associations are with a who’s who of Islamic groups here in the United States: CAIR, the Islamic Society of North America, the Muslim Students Association, the Muslim Public Affairs Council, the Muslim American Society and the Islamic Circle of North America, among others. She spoke glowingly of the head of Islamic Relief USA- a branch of Islamic Relief Worldwide, an organization that some Middle Eastern countries have designated a terrorist organization. You will kindly note there is no Lion’s Club or Red Cross in that list of associations. The reason for the praise of Islamic Relief USA- their willingness to discuss “water relief from Gaza to Detroit.” One supposes water is yet another inalienable right, like healthcare, our Founders overlooked.
She supported Black Lives Matter in Chicago in 2015 for their support of trying to protect a Palestinian woman who was to be deported. The woman in question was Rasmea Odeh who was a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. Folks, if you are a member of this group, you are a terrorist and surprise! Odeh not only committed immigration fraud, she had a central role in a Jerusalem bombing in 1969. This “freedom fighter” helped bomb a supermarket leaving two people dead.
In another surprise, she showed support for Linda Sarsour when that fruitcake lent her support to Ahed Tamini. This little 17-year-old firebrand was arrested and jailed by the Israeli Defense Forces after she was filmed slapping an Israeli soldier. She received eight months in jail which is rather lenient considering the alternative in a Muslim or Palestinian country- loss of a limb or head. Undeterred, Tamini, who apparently has the support of Sarsour and Tlaib even has encouraged other Palestinians to attack Israeli Jews by means of “stabbings, martyrdom-seeking operations [i.e. suicide bombings], throwing stones.” Said the illustrious Ms. Tlaib: “Her voice should be lifted” because it was inhumane to incarcerate a 17-year-old terrorist-in-training, but just fine to strap a bomb on your chest and blow up some of them Jews.
Tlaib in her run for the US House seat had the support of J Street- an anti-Israeli/pro-Hamas organization financially supported by George Soros, the Democratic Socialists of America, and everyone’s favorite poster boy for obesity, Michael Moore. While running for the seat, she went door-to-door with Linda Sarsour. In an interview with BBC, she vowed to vote against any military aid to Israel and believes there is only one solution in the Middle East- a one-state solution that includes only Palestinians.
At her swearing in ceremony, she was accompanied by the leader of Al Awada- Abbas Hamideh- who has (1) said Israel does not have the right to exist, (2) Zionism is the same as Nazism and is akin to the actions of ISIS, and (3) has called Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah, the “most honorable Arab alive.”
It is interesting to note that while morons like Mazie Hirono (D-HI), Spartacus Booker (D-NJ) and Kamala Harris (D-CA)- collective IQ near 35- grilled a judicial nominee about his membership in that radical and extremist Catholic organization known as the Knights of Columbus, they welcome into their fold someone who supports people with actual real life human blood on their hands. What’s the worse the Knights of Columbus ever did? Make burnt pancakes at a fundraising breakfast?
Yep… you have to just love that new diversity in Congress. A horse-headed socialist from the Bronx, a perjurer/fraud from Minnesota and now a terrorist lover from Michigan. What can be next? Perhaps a Ocasio-Cortez darker mini-me from Massachusetts?
