Rashida 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 is a person of color.
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 recent 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

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 addition to these anti-Semitic actions, Tlaib also made a bigoted tweet accusing Jewish-Americans of having divided loyalties, an attack frequently made by anti-Semites. In January 2019, Tlaib willingly photographed herself with a Hezbollah-praising activist who also denied Israel's right to exist.
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.
Tlaib's first marriage was to her uncle.

- Siraj Wahhaj has said, "It is my duty and our duty as Muslims to replace the U.S. Constitution with the Quran." He has also said, "If Allah says 100 strikes, 100 strikes it is. If Allah says cut off their hand, you cut off their hand. If Allah says stone them to death, through the Prophet Muhammad, then you stone them to death, because it’s the obedience of Allah and his messenger—nothing personal." Siraj Wahhaj is also the father of one of two men arrested on August 8, 2018 in New Mexico. The two were training 11 children to carry out school shootings. A 3 year old boy was killed during an exorcism at the desert compound.
