Rashida Harbi Tlaib (nee Tlaib; 1st marriage to her uncle Fayez Tlaib) is the Democratic Socialist representative of Michigan's 13th congressional district and anti-white activist. Tlaib has not been shy about hiding her fascist and anti-Semitic tendencies. She wrote at least one op-ed on Louis Farrakhan's website. The Anti-Defamation League identifies Farrakhan as the nation's "leading anti-Semite." Of Middle Eastern origin and claiming to be "Palestinian", Tlaib thinks she can claim being a person of "color." Which she does for votes, for example.
Taking her oath on a Koran, Tlaib was sworn in surrounded by a group that included Linda Sarsour, Nihad Awad and Rasha Mubarak as her special guests. Sarsour has called for Muslims to carry out jihad against President Trump and has praised Imam Siraj Wahhaj, named in court documents as an alleged “co-conspirator” in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Awad is co-founder and Executive Director of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) which has direct ties to Hamas. Mubarak is a community organizer for CAIR in Orlando, Florida. After the oath was taken Tlaib told a crowd of well-wishers that "we’re gonna impeach the mother****er," referring to the President. Democrat leadership failed to condemn the comment while many Democrats defended her.
Tlaib was endorsed by the Communist Justice Democrats and co-sponsored the totalitarian Green New Deal. In a Twitter post, Tlaib ludicrously called for the deportation of Donald Trump, which drew massive criticism against her from other posters in response, many of whom called her out on her racism and anti-Semitism and called for her removal from office, while some posted the 2016 video of Tlaib, who has a history of anger issues and has put such issues on public display on numerous occasions, having a meltdown as she was forcibly escorted from a Trump speech. Tlaib's hatred for Trump caused her to forget the issues in her own congressional district, including the heroin epidemic.

In 2008 Tlaib was Arab-American outreach coordinator for Barack Obama’s Michigan campaign and was elected to the Michigan House of Representatives in representing the 12th District (Southwest Detroit). "Green jobs pioneer" and self-described Communist Van Jones was the keynote speaker for the 4th annual Michigan Summit on June 12, 2010, headlining a day-long event at which Tlaib also spoke.
In 2016, New York Magazine named her one of 10 activists who may become the future of the Democrat Party as the "new Obama". That same year, Tlaib and several other liberal activists had to be forcibly removed by Secret Service agents from a Trump campaign speech in Detroit after she began acting up and screaming at the then-candidate and disrupting his speech.
Activism for "terror support" suspects
In October 2010, a day before "community activists" were expected to present subpoenaed documents to a grand jury in Chicago, 68 organizations and dozens of public figures demanded an end to FBI investigations and grand jury subpoenas on Chicago and Minneapolis activists (mainly connected to the Freedom Road Socialist Organization/FightBack!) accused of supporting terrorist groups in the Middle East and Latin America via a jointly signed letter. Signatories included the American Friends Service Committee (Western Region), National Network for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, and American-Arab anti-Discrimination Committee, as well as four San Francisco Supervisors, and Tlaib.
The jointly signed letter was presented in response to the September 24, 2010, FBI Raids on the Illinois and Minnesota homes and offices of at least 14 activists targeted for alleged "Material Support for Terrorism."
In praise of CAIR
|"Your fight for those who don’t have the resources to defend themselves is invaluable. The advocacy efforts of your organization are vital to all American Muslims, Americans, our community and our state.” - Michigan State Representative Rashida H. Tlaib (March 2010).|
Tlaib voted against humanitarian aid for children on the border.
In one of the most galling and insulting displays of hubris ever shown by a member of Congress, Tlaib fantasized out load to a crowd on the steps of the Supreme Court that American men would actually want to have sex with her.
Anti-Israeli and anti-Semitic statements
- See also: Left-wing Anti-Semitism
Upon assuming office in January 2019, Tlaib hung a map in her congressional office with a sticky note calling Israel "Palestine." Earlier, she endorsed the anti-Israel BDS movement. In January 2019, Tlaib willingly photographed herself with a Hezbollah-praising activist who also denied Israel's right to exist.
In addition to mentioned anti-Semitic actions, Tlaib also made a bigoted tweet accusing Jewish-Americans of having divided loyalties, an attack frequently made by anti-Semites. (Jan, 2019)
Posting cartoon by long known anti-Semite
On August 17, 2019, Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar posted cartoon by author accused of anti-Semitism previously. The cartoonist was placed in Iranian (belittling or denying) Holocaust cartoon contest in 2006.
In Jan. 2020, Tlaib promoted a false claim regarding an Arab boy who died not by Israelis. She demonized Jews. Even after being called out she refused to apologize.
As Joe Biden elected to his cabinet Antony Blinken in 2020, Tlaib expressed suspicion, masking her response under a supposed worry for first amendment right to protest. She was accused of Anti-Semitism. In reaction, Americans Against Antisemitism founder wrote: "'Welp, as long as that Judische pick doesn’t stop me from focusing my hatred on one country, Israel, then he’s a good Jew!' It’s not your 1A right you’re trying to protect but your vile Jew-hatred! That’s ALL yours!"
Citizenship to outsiders
In July 12, 2021, as Tlaib used the Apartheid slur on restricting citizenship for outsiders falsely claiming it's "racist," a tweeter replied: Rashida Tlaib might be surprised to learn that every sovereign nation restricts entry, residence and citizenship for outsiders, including (gasp!) the US. In no country does marrying someone mean they get to become a citizen or even a resident. Israel, amazingly, is no different.
In August 2021, Rashida Tlaib expressed more outrageous racism, in an 'antisemitic dog whistle’, as she spoke of people 'behind the curtain' exploiting 'the rest of us,' from Gaza to Detroit. Columnist at liberal Washington Post blamed MAGA for this Democrat congresswoman's bigotry.
On the method of "as a woman of color" ahead of racist statements by Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, a tweeter noted: Saying "as a woman of color" before a racist statement does not make that statement any better.
Re her reasoning:
Representative Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) recently told the Detroit police department that non-blacks should be barred from working as analysts in the bureau’s facial-recognition unit. Why? Because “non-African Americans,” she insisted, “think African Americans all look the same.”
Is that right? Here, Tlaib takes a nasty sentiment held by an archetypal racist in the antebellum South, superimposes it onto the country today as if nothing has changed in the intervening 200 years, and casts aspersions on groups on the basis of that error.Non-blacks, as a group, think that “African Americans all look the same”? I’m not sure that this was true in 1819, let alone today. Facial recognition “analysts need to be African American,” the freshman congresswoman demanded, to the visible dismay of the black police chief, “not people that are not.”
Tlaib was paid $139,873 by a George Soros group in 2016. Between 2016 and 2017, Tlaib received a total of $225,180. Tlaib did not disclose the name of the source of funds as required by the House Ethics Committee and disclosed a lesser amount than she received. Tlaib siphoned off $45,500 for herself out of campaign donations, $17,550 after the election was over.
Tlaib's father, Harbi Elabed told a Detroit reporter that Rashida lied about living in Detroit when she actually lived in Dearborn. Rashida listed her address as her father's home but never told him.
Justice DemocratsTlaib was endorsed by Justice Democrats in 2018. Politico reported,
“I am part of a new era of social justice advocates that believe in accountability no matter what party you’re part of,” said newly elected Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), who was endorsed by Justice Democrats. “It’s important to have more people like us running for office and I want to support that.”Justice Democrats is a fundraising scam founded by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Cenk Uygur.

All four members of the Squad, and the affiliated groups that back them, were involved in the 2020 Leftwing insurrection. Minneapolis and Metro Atlanta Democratic Socialists of America colluded with Antifa in the violence. Seattle DSA is also involved. DSA branches in Memphis, Los Angeles, Brooklyn, Louisville, Philadelphia, and Richmond are raising funds for “George Floyd Uprisings Nationwide.” The American Left has the power to start race riots in nearly every major U.S. city.
In Marxist–Leninist and Maoist theory, a United front is a coalition of leftist organizations that collude for the purpose of taking over a government. In the 116th Congress, the Committees of Correspondence for Democratic Socialism, Democratic Socialists of America, Liberation Road (formerly Freedom Road Socialist Organization}, and Communist Party of the United States formally created a united front of the nation's four largest Communist organizations to take over the Democrat Party. As of 2018 the umbrella group is known as the Left Inside/Outside Project (“One foot in the institutions, one foot in the streets.”) consisted of 57,000 community organizers. At its August 2019 convention the DSA passed a resolution to form a
“National Working Group to help drive collaboration and resource sharing to support our antifascist organizing.”
Law enforcement authorities found evidence of pre-planning. The Minneapolis Star/Tribune reported:
state officials said several caches of flammable materials were found both in neighborhoods where there have already been fires and “in cars we’ve stopped as recently as this morning,” said John Harrington, state public safety commissioner. Some of the caches look like they may have been planted days ago and some only in the last 24 hours or so, he said. Police are also finding stolen vehicles with plates removed that are being used to transport the flammable materials. Looted goods and weapons also have been found in the stolen cars, he said.
The Sunrise Movement, with established groups in several major cities, has heavily recruited activists from the DSA and Liberation Road affiliated groups, such as the Pennsylvania Student Power Network. Sunrise founding activists are all current trainers with Momentum Community, which is a training workshop funded by millionaires and billionaires to “incubate” supposed "grassroots" organizations such as Sunrise and the Movimiento Cosecha (Harvest Movement). Democrat millionaire donor and former 2020 presidential election candidate Tom Steyer's NextGen America is also tied to the Sunrise Movement, and according to the New York Times, the two groups “strategize” together.
The DSA itself as of 2020 has 66,000 members nationwide and locals in almost every state. Other communist groups such as Communist Party USA, Liberation Road, Socialist Alternative, Workers World Party, Party for Socialism and Liberation, Socialist Unity Party, and Revolutionary Communist Party and their allies in Black Lives Matter and Antifa can mobilize tens of thousands of militants and organizing cadre at short notice. The American Left has the power to start race riots in nearly every major U.S. city. DSA branches in Memphis, Los Angeles, Brooklyn, Louisville, Philadelphia, and Richmond are raising funds for “George Floyd Uprisings Nationwide.”
Following the shooting death of career criminal and gangbanger Daunte Wright in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota on April 11, 2021 after he attempted to resist arrest and flee the scene when he was arrested on outstanding warrants at a traffic stop, Tlaib posted a Twitter post where she openly sided with Black Lives Matter criminals who instigated riots in the city when word of Wright's death came out, falsely called the police "racist", called for complete anarchy and insanely demanded the abolition of all police departments and prisons. Tlaib was heavily criticized by other Twitter posters following her inflammatory post, with many correctly pointing out the foolishness of her demands while some pointed out that Wright, whom Tlaib was defending in her tweet, was wanted for illegal possession of a weapon and had other outstanding warrants at the time of his traffic stop arrest, and others called Tlaib out for both inciting violence (which is illegal under federal law) and for her hypocrisy in demanding abolition of the police while she is surrounded and protected by Capitol Police officers; even Ted Cruz weighed in and criticized Tlaib for her irresponsible comments.
Yoseph Haddad, a moderate Arab Israeli commentator with 35,000 Twitter followers remarked, "We have to say the truth! There is a direct connection between the hate speech and incitement of Rashida Talib and the other politicians in the United States to the antisemitic attacks that we see in the US.

Tlaib paid T.J. Bucholz's firm, Vanguard Public Affairs, more than $21,000 in the 2018 cycle and nearly $5,300 in 2019. After winning her 2018 race, Tlaib tweeted Bucholz to say she "couldn't have done it without" him. Bucholz went on to spearhead a 2019 Tlaib campaign fundraising effort, selling "Impeach the MF" shirts.
Tlaib who has railed against "violence and abuse" toward women in politics, remained silent as five former employees accused Bucholz of sexual harassment. According to the Detroit Free Press, Bucholz admitted to texting a 22-year-old female staffer in 2016 to say "you're so f—ing hot. Marry me." He texted the same employee to comment on a photo of her a year later, writing "you certainly look … um … healthy."
Another young female staffer said Bucholz threatened to photoshop an image of her in a "sexually compromised position" if she left his firm. One Democratic activist accused Bucholz of proposing a sexual threesome in 2010. The consultant was hospitalized for an "apparent suicide attempt" in March 2021, according to the Lansing-based City Pulse.
Tlaib disclosed thousands of dollars in rental income, despite co-sponsoring 'cancel rent' bill during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Tlaib's first marriage was to her uncle.

- Detroit Police chief calls Tlaib's comments 'racist' after she suggests facial recognition tech analysts should be African American, Veronica Stracqualursi, CNN, October 4, 2019.
Rep. Rashida Tlaib suggested that the Detroit police department should only employ African Americans to identify black suspects from the city's facial recognition technology, according to video captured by The Detroit News -- a comment that the city's police chief called "racist" and "insulting."
The Michigan Democrat made the comment during her tour Monday of the Detroit Police Department's Real Time Crime Center, as she learned about the city's facial recognition technology and the trained analysts that identify suspects through the photos flagged by the software, according to the Detroit News.
"Analysts need to be African Americans, not people that are not," Tlaib said during the tour, according to an edited video from Detroit News, adding, "I think non-African Americans think African Americans all look the same."...He told CNN affiliate WDIV-TV on Wednesday: "The fact that she made that statement, what does that say to the members of this department, who are analysts, who are trained, who are white? That they, in some way, can't do their job professionally? That's insulting.

Far-left Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), who has a documented history of anti-Semitism, promoted a false blood libel story last week demonizing Israelis for the death of a young Palestinian boy and, after significant backlash, deleted the retweet but has refused to apologize for her latest anti-Semitic incident.The tweet that Tlaib promoted stated: “KIDNAPPED & EXECUTED 7 year old #Palestinian child Qusai was kidnapped by a Herd of violent #Israeli settlers, assaulted & thrown in a water well was found this morning frozen to death in Beit Hanina, #Jerusalem after #Israeli forces assaulted search teams.”
Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib left Detroit’s police chief outraged and insulted after a tour of his department’s new video surveillance facility — by telling him he should only hire black employees to be facial recognition analysts, a report said.
“I think non-African Americans think African Americans all look the same,” the freshman congresswoman told the city’s top cop, James Craig, during a tour of the department’s Public Safety Headquarters, the Detroit News reported.
“Analysts need to be African American, not people that are not,” she insisted during the tour, which was open to the press and which left several officials outraged.
Craig protested immediately, telling Tlaib that he trusts “people who are trained, regardless of race, regardless of gender.”
Afterward, he told the News, “It’s insulting. We have a diverse group of crime analysts, and what she said — that non-whites should not work in that capacity because they think all black people look alike — is a slap in the face to all the men and women in the crime center.”
