Default Rashida Tlaib makes 'breathtakingly vile' comments about the Holocaust — and rewrites

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand let's see what our favorite lib anti-Semite is sayin' these days....

Rashida Tlaib makes 'breathtakingly vile' comments about the Holocaust — and rewrites history in process

Freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) admitted in a recent interview that she experiences a "calming feeling" whenever she thinks about the Holocaust because her Palestinian ancestors helped "create a safe haven for Jews."

However, Tlaib claimed in the same interview the role was "forced on" her ancestors "in a way that took their human dignity away."

What did Tlaib say?

"There's kind of a calming feeling, I always tell folks, when I think of the Holocaust and the tragedy of the Holocaust and the fact that it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, the human dignity, their existence in many ways had been wiped out," Tlaib said.

"All of it was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews, post the Holocaust, post the tragedy and horrific persecution of Jews across the world at that time. And, I love the fact that it was my ancestors that provided that, right?" she continued. "But they did it in a way that took their human dignity away, right? And it was forced on them."


Tlaib made her shocking remarks during an appearance on Yahoo News' "Skullduggery" podcast last week.

Tlaib's comments came in response to podcast co-host Dan Klaidman, who asked about Tlaib's support of a one-state solution between Israel and Palestine. Tlaib said she supports a one-state solution because it would provide equity for both Jews and Muslims.

However, Klaidman was quick to call out the freshman lawmaker, noting that a one-state solution would make Jews a minority in a single Arab-Israel state.

"But Dan it's not up to us to decide what it looks like," Tlaib shot back.


When the podcast hosts pushed back further, Tlaib launched into a broadside against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, saying a two-state solution is "impossible" because Netanyahu has "proceeded to divide, how he has proceeded to dissect and segregate communities."

What was the reaction to Tlaib's comments?

The Michigan lawmaker was widely condemned on social media for her "breathtakingly vile" comments.

But she was also called out for what appears to be historical ignorance concerning the connection between top Nazi leaders and Haj Amin al-Husseini, the top Islamic leader in Jerusalem during the inter-war period who remained a top leader during the war.

Not only did al-Husseini meet with Adolf Hitler during the war, but he held a well-documented relationship with SS commander Heinrich Himmler, the mastermind behind the Nazi "final solution."


And while some historians have attempted to say that al-Husseini was unaware of the Holocaust, most serious historians believe al-Husseini had intimate knowledge of the genocide.

Al-Husseini also attempted to block Jews escaping Europe from settling in Palestine.

Reaction to this pig's comments not good. Well, at least from conservatives. I expect libs to defend this because that's what they do.

Rashida Tlaib slammed by House GOP over statement that Holocaust gives her 'kind of a calming feeling'

Quote:
House Republican leaders called on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to "take action" against Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., Sunday after Tlaib said that thinking about the Holocaust gave her "kind of a calming feeling."

Tlaib, the first Palestinian-American woman to be elected to Congress, made the comments while discussing the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians during an appearance on the Yahoo News podcast "Skullduggery."
Quote:
"There is no justification for the twisted and disgusting comments made by Rashida Tlaib just days after the annual Day of Holocaust Remembrance," House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., said in a statement. "More than six million Jews were murdered during the Holocaust; there is nothing 'calming' about that fact.

"Unfortunately, this is far from the first display of heinous anti-Semitic comments coming from Democrat House members this year, and it’s clear this is now the norm for their caucus," Scalise added. "It’s long past time for Speaker Pelosi to take swift action and make it clear that these vile comments have no place in Congress."

House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., said Tlaib's comments were "sickening" and called on Pelosi and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., "to finally take action against Representative Tlaib and other members of the Democratic caucus who are spreading vile anti-Semitism."

A spokesman for Tlaib did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Here's some more comments by this anti-Semite pig.

Who the fuq elected this racist to Congress?

Democratic congresswoman Tlaib accuses Israel of oppressing, targeting 'Palestinian children and families'

Quote:
Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., has accused Israeli forces of targeting Palestinian children and families after a bloody weekend in the bitter conflict.

Tlaib leveled the accusation while responding to criticism of a New York Times headline that read: “Gaza Militants Fire 250 Rockets, and Israel Responds With Airstrikes.”
Quote:
Tlaib joined in, writing: “When will the world stop dehumanizing our Palestinian people who just want to be free? Headlines like this & framing it in this way just feeds into the continued lack of responsibility on Israel who unjustly oppress & target Palestinian children and families. #FreePalestine.”

I never thought it would be possible for a person in Congress to be allowed to spew such antisemitism.
