Muslim Democrat Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib was responding to a tweet from a Jewish senator when she unleashed an anti-Semitic slur.
You know Tlaib as the classy freshman in the lower chamber who called President Trump a “motherf*****.”
From Daily Wire:
Freshman Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) is creating fresh controversy in her second week in the House of Representatives, but this time it’s over a shocking, anti-Semitic slur leveled at her Congressional colleagues for their support of a bill which would allow local, state, and federal agencies to avoid doing business with entities that support the anti-Israel Boycott-Divestment-Sanction (or BDS) movement.
It’s absurd that the first bill during the shutdown is legislation which punishes Americans who exercise their constitutional right to engage in political activity. Democrats must block consideration of any bills that don’t reopen the government. Let's get our priorities right. https://t.co/rHvpBHtHI5

They forgot what country they represent. This is the U.S. where boycotting is a right & part of our historical fight for freedom & equality. Maybe a refresher on our U.S. Constitution is in order, then get back to opening up our government instead of taking our rights away. https://t.co/KkmqjR58ZM

Did you catch it?
The “dual loyalty” smear is a typical — if horrifying — anti-Semitic charge, a fact Tlaib is no doubt aware of.

More on Tlaib:
Tlaib and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) are the first two female Muslims elected to Congress.
The first elected Muslim was Keith Ellison, who is now attorney general of Minnesota despite being accused of sexual harassment by an ex-girlfriend.
On their first day in office, Tlaib and Omar gleefully posed for pictures with radical activist and anti-Semite, Linda Sarsour.
From Daily Wire:
Far-left Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) embraced anti-Semite and alleged Muslim Brotherhood sympathizer Linda Sarsour this week on their first day in Congress.
Sarsour is a noted anti-Semite who wants people to stop “humanizing” Jews.
From Daily Wire:
Far-left Islamic activist Linda Sarsour made strong anti-Semitic remarks during a speech this month at the annual Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) convention in Houston, Texas — calling for the dehumanization of Israelis.
The Algemeiner reported that Sarsour shamed Muslims for not being more politically active and said that if Muslims are not promoting the Palestinian cause then they are part of the problem, saying, “you as an American Muslim are complicit in the occupation of Palestinians, in the murder of Palestinian protesters.”
Sarsour: “So when we start debating in the Muslim community about Palestine, it tells me a lot about you and about the type of faith that you have in your heart. If you’re on the side of the oppressor, or you’re defending the oppressor, or you’re actually trying to humanize the oppressor, then that’s a problem sisters and brothers, and we got to be able to say: That is not the position of the Muslim American community.“
Sarsour is rumored to be a Muslim Brotherhood sympathizer, as evidenced by the tweet below:
The founder of the Women’s March, Teresa Shook, is calling on Sarsour to step down for her anti-Semitic and homophobic remarks.
“As Founder of the Women’s March, my original vision and intent was to show the capacity of human beings to stand in solidarity and love against the hateful rhetoric that had become a part of the political landscape in the U.S. and around the world. I wanted us to prove that the majority of us are decent people who want a world that is fair, just and inclusive of Women and All people. We proved that on January 21, 2017 (and in the U.S. this past midterm with a diverse electorate).
Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory, Linda Sarsour and Carmen Perez of Women’s March, Inc. have steered the Movement away from its true course. I have waited, hoping they would right the ship. But they have not. In opposition to our Unity Principles, they have allowed anti-Semitism, anti- LBGTQIA sentiment and hateful, racist rhetoric to become a part of the platform by their refusal to separate themselves from groups that espouse these racist, hateful beliefs. I call for the current Co-Chairs to step down and to let others lead who can restore faith in the Movement and its original intent. I stand in Solidarity with all the Sister March Organizations, to bring the Movement back to its authentic purpose. As Women’s March founder, I am stepping up to bring focus back to the Unity Principles on which our movement began, and with the support of all of those who marched and have continued to march, I pledge to support grassroots, decentralized leadership promoting a safe, worldwide community devoid of hate speech, bigotry and racism.”
Women’s Marches are being canceled all over the country, including Chicago and California.
Anti-Semitism is rampant among the group’s “leaders.”
As far as the Golden State is concerned, the march was canceled because too many white people signed up as opposed to other races.
“Up to this point, the participants have been overwhelmingly white, lacking representation from several perspectives in our community,” the press release went on to say. “Instead of pushing forward with crucial voices absent, the organizing team will take time for more outreach. Our goal is that planning will continue and we will be successful in creating an event that will build power and community engagement through connection between women that seek to improve the lives of all in our community.”
