Rashida Tlaib is the Democratic Socialist representative of Michigan's 13th congressional since 2019.[1] Tlaib has not been shy about hiding her fascist and anti-Semitic tendencies.

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.[2] Sarsour has called for Muslims to carry out jihad against President Trump and has praised Imam Siraj Wahhaj,[3] 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.[4] Democratic leadership failed to condemn the comment while many Democrats defended her.[5]

Tlaib's hatred for Trump caused her to forget the issues in her own congressional district, including the heroin epidemic.[6]

Career

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).[7] "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.[8]

Tlaib is on the Board of the National Lawyers Guild affiliated Sugar Law Center which openly associates itself with a murderous ideology.[9][10] [11]

In 2016, New York Magazine named her one of 10 activists who may become the future of the Democratic Party as the "new Obama".[12]

Tlaib filled the congressional seat vacated by John Conyers who resigned from Congress after 52 years when sexual harassment allegations and settlement payouts to female staff members surfaced.

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."[13]

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).[14]

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."[15] Earlier, she endorsed the anti-Israel BDS movement.[16] 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.[17] In January 2019, Tlaib willingly photographed herself with a Hezbollah-praising activist to also denied Israel's right to exist.[18]

Ethics problems

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.[19]

  3. 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.
