CNN: Tlaib Revises History

May 13, 2019 | Press Team •

We’ve seen some of the most vile, anti-Semitic language come from House Democrats since they took the majority. But recent comments made by Rep. Rashida Tlaib reached a new low even for them.

During a podcast interview titled “From Rashida with Love,” Tlaib said she gets a “calming feeling” when thinking about the Holocaust. She went on to attempt an unpreceded rewriting of history by falsely claiming Palestinians provided refuge to Jews:

Remember: For months, Speaker Pelosi and Leader Hoyer have refused to hold members of their caucus accountable for their anti-Semitic rhetoric. They watered down a resolution intended to condemn Rep. Ilhan Omar after she repeatedly invoked anti-Semitic tropes, and even rewarded her with a seat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

No more watered-down resolutions. No more ‘whataboutism.’ If House Democrat leadership continues to refuse to take action, they are fully endorsing the hate and bigotry being expressed by their members on a weekly basis.
