In light of the backlash to her latest round of anti-Semitic remarks, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI-13) wants people to know she stands in solidarity with fellow anti-Semitical progressive Tamika Mallory:


Tlaib was replying to Mallory’s retweeting of another Tlaib apologist – Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA-7), who trotted out the “dangerous” card in response to Tlaib’s critics in yet another shameless attempt at stifling the debate:

One of the fascinating things about these discussions involving Tlaib, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN-5) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY-14) is that they – along with their defenders – actually believe their critics want them to stop talking, to be silenced.

They don’t.

Every time Tlaib, Omar, and AOC start talking, it reveals much in the way of how extreme the party has become. Furthermore, their party leadership’s reflexive defenses of them show how alarmingly tolerant they now are of raw, unabashed, unapologetic shutuppery and anti-Semitism.


When they talk, they reveal much. And most of it is not good look – for them.

There’s no mistaking it – the latest revelation about Tlaib is part of a disturbing pattern with her that can’t be explained away. The below tweet is part of a must-read thread that puts everything together about Tlaib’s anti-Israel, anti-Jewish, anti-Semitical belief system.

If anyone is trying to silence criticism, it’s the other way around. Tlaib, Omar, AOC and their defenders do it by way of playing the tiresome “progressive woman of color” card. Or the “incitement” card. Or the “woman” card. Or the “bullied” card.

Or the “racism” card:


They are trying to shut their critics down, but their critics in turn do not want them to be silent.
