The media has tried to prop up the so-called “squad” of left-wing congresswoman as icons. But, in reality, they are very unpopular among Americans.
We heard plenty about squad members AOC and Ilhan Omar. But equally as troubling in her behavior is Rashida Tlaib.
She is mostly known for her vulgar comments and getting kicked out of a Trump fundraiser years ago. But she is also an outspoken critic of America’s ally, Israel.
But recently, it seems she went too far in her comments and support for an anti-Israel group. Because now, a Republican congressman is demanding she is removed from powerful committees.
From Daily Wire:
Rep. Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA) is calling for the removal of Tlaib from her congressional committees after Tlaib reportedly attended a conference last week that was described as “anti-Israel.” The call also comes after Tlaib recently promoted a highly inflammatory tweet on her Twitter account that used a phrase that has long been associated with extremist calls to eliminate the state of Israel.
The squad is known for their support of socialism. But the media often ignores their shocking sentiments against the nation of Israel, particularly Omar and Tlaib.
Republican Guy Reschenthaler is bringing attention to two recent moments where he believes Tlaib crossed the line.
She attended a conference that embraced the anti-Israel BDS movement. That is an international effort to cripple Israel’s economy.
Tlaib also retweeted a statement some believe calls for attacks against Israel and the Jewish people. The phrase is often quoted by Hamas.
Reschenthaler believes this woman does not support our ally Israel. In fact, he appears to be concerned that she is actively working against the only Jewish state in the world.
Looking at her track record, it’s hard to disagree.
He wants her removed from her congressional committees as a form of rebuke by the House. But considering Pelosi’s ongoing reputation for refusing to confront the radical left, we don’t know if that will happen.
But imagine if it was a Republican who said and did these things? Democrats (and conservatives) would not only want them removed from committees but perhaps removed from Congress.
How can any American leader oppose one of our most important allies? How can they appear to echo antisemitic sentiments on Twitter?
Pelosi might try to protect people like Tlaib, but I doubt the rest of the country is on her side.
- Republican congressman Reschenthaler wants Tlaib removed from congressional committees.
- He is drawing a line over her recent involvement in apparent anti-Israel events and comments.
- Pelosi and House Democrats are unlikely to heed Reschenthaler’s call.
