Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), of “impeach the motherf***er” fame, recently told a Yahoo News podcast, “There’s kind of a calming feeling, I always tell folks, when I think of the Holocaust and the tragedy of the Holocaust and the fact that it was my ancestors—Palestinians—who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways had been wiped out. All of it was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews…” Now tell us the one about the three bears.
Her statement is a complete fabrication. The Palestinians were hostile to the Jews then as they are now. One of their leaders, Haj Amin al-Husseini, was close to SS commander Heinrich Himmler. They did not graciously give up their land, dignity and existence so the Jewish people had somewhere to go.
And she experiences a “calming feeling” when she thinks of the Holocaust? Does she also experience a “calming feeling” when she thinks about 9/11? The Bataan Death March? The Killing Fields? Perhaps she is in ecstasy when remembering Soviet tanks crushing all in their way during the Prague Spring of 1968? Is she blissfully content when pondering the plagues? Fully “at peace” when contemplating the Jonestown Massacre? The monster within is barely hidden.
What if President Trump had said he experiences a “calming feeling” when thinking about 20th-Century Klan violence? Would Democrats and the mainstream media have cared what he had to say after that? Let him off the hook? I mean, WTF?! People are getting attacked for wearing hats that say, “Make America Great Again,” and yet we are tolerating this? WTFWTF??!!
A few Republicans called for Democratic leadership (there’s an oxymoron for you!) to reprimand Tlaib for her “vile anti-Semitism,” provoking her to angrily claim that they were taking her comments out of context and trying to silence her to push their “racist and hateful agenda.” Tlaib’s office followed that up with a statement condemning Republicans and “right-wing extremists” for “spreading outright lies to incite hate.” Projection, it’s what you do when you are a progressive. Angrily denouncing your opponents for beliefs and behaviors you yourself hold and engage in is a time-tested tactic of radical leftists. Tlaib is rapidly proving herself to be a world-class prevaricator of almost Clintonian proportions. She is clearly an extremist, a racist, an anti-Semite…and full of hatred for anyone who dares to oppose her.
Rational folks will experience a calming feeling when she is no longer a member of the United States Congress.
