Rashida Tlaib - the gift that keeps on giving

Better listen to your betters....

"Democrat Rashida Tlaib Blasted for Antisemitic Tweet: ‘They Forgot What Country They Represent

Newly-installed Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) is being criticized for an antisemitic tweet she posted on Sunday evening, accusing pro-Israel Americans of dual loyalty — a common theme used by antisemites to attack Jews.

Tlaib tweeted in response to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who is opposing legislation targeting the “boycott, divestment, sanctions” (BDS) movement — itself widely considered antisemitic for singling out Israel.

Sanders and far-left Democrats oppose the anti-BDS legislation because, they claim, it stifles freedom of speech and association — though the same Democrats often support censorship of conservatives on campus and in media.

This is her tweet, in response to a Crazy Bernie Sanders tweet, Tlaib tweeted:

    "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

    — Rashida Tlaib (@RashidaTlaib) January 7, 2019"
-------------------------------------------

Tlaib of course is the souper-genius who, before she had even been to her office in Washington, decided it was a good idea to tell the world "we're going to impeach that motherfucker" in reference to Trump.

Not sure what's more hilarious, an idiotic anti-Semitic democrat believing Trump will successfully be impeached or that they're all about "our US Constitution".

Sadly, I'd guess yes.

One other note - calling out Bernie for being "too Jewish" shows not just that she's tone deaf about timing and maybe just maybe that rarest of creatures, a Jew hatin' Muslim, but that she - like Horseface McSocialist - is more then willing to bury the older "leadership" in her party.

Which is a recurring theme with younger leftists.  They seem to think the democrats need to get more liberal to win elections.

Anti-BDS legislation does stifle freedom of speech and association, and politically-motivated censorship on public college campuses does the same thing. Both are wrong. How about that?

I would argue it is conservative to be against anti-BDS legislation.

If not then the word "conservative" is meaningless, largely my thoughts on the word anyway.

And why are the people of the United States forced to finance Israel's border wall and protection when getting Congress to do the same thing for our own country is near impossible?

The word "anti-semitism" is also meaningless. Semitism is a language category. Just throwing around that phrase doesn't shield anyone from criticism. Arabs shouldn't get away with using it as a shield in that way either, not that they do, even if Arabic is a Semitic language as is Hebrew. It's all stupid.

I mean, why is anti-BDS legislation that effectively gets someone fired if they don't pledge their loyalty to a foreign power so important for Americans? It's not important to the vast majority of Americans in the slightest. What happened to America First?

And sure, maybe Rashida Tlaib has dual loyalty to Palestine and she's the pot calling the kettle black.

But why should the U.S. be so preoccupied with other peoples' beefs off at this ancient hellhole in the desert? Talk about "entangling alliances."

Those are fair points.

I don't like any position that restricts US citizens IN ANY WAY in favor of any other country.

Oh, she well might be right about the substance of her argument.  My comments were more aimed at the tone, timing, and willingness to go after members of her party who've been in politics for as long as she's been alive - all despite the fact that she hasn't been to her office yet.

In other words, it's hilarious.
