Something needs to be done.
Rep. Rashida Tlaid is once again in hot water after she was caught making anti-semitic remarks about the holocaust during an interview on Yahoo’s “Skullduggery” program, the New York Post reports.
On Friday, the Michigan representative said, “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.
“I mean, just all of it was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews, post-the Holocaust, post-the tragedy and the horrific persecution of Jews across the world at that time” Tlaib added.
She concluded, “I love the fact that it was my ancestors that provided that [safe haven], in many ways.”
Steve Scalise responded right away, “There is no justification for the twisted and disgusting comments made by Rashida Tlaib just days after the annual Day of Holocaust Remembrance,” he said.
Fox News reports that Tlaib is not happy with the attention she’s received over her holocaust remarks and is fighting back.
Tlaib, the first Palestinian-American woman to be elected to Congress, has been accused of anti-Semitism several times since taking office in January.
Tlaib’s spokesman accused Republican leaders and right-wing extremists of taking her words out of context to incite hate.
Tlaib vowed to not be silenced. “Policing my words, twisting & turning them to ignite vile attacks on me will not work.“
Vile, disgusing and should NEVER be tolerated in the United States House of Representatives.
Rashida Tlaib is a gift that keeps on giving, for the Republican party.
