Rashida Tlaib Tag

The Biden administration fully embraced the extension of the eviction moratorium declared by the CDC at The Squad's behest. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Cori Bush did a public protest, but other squad members pushed just as hard for it. Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) were both vocal proponents of canceling the rent, yet both of them have collected rental income over the last year.

As regular readers doubtlessly know, the 2018 midterm elections presented Americans with a new phenomenon in the form of the congressional "Squad": several avowedly anti-Israel (and often Islamist-allied) first-term U.S. Representatives. Now, as the smoke from #Election2020 begins to dissipate, it seems that (spoiler alert) The Squad's congressional anti-Zionist cabal is about to get a little bigger.

American Muslims for Palestine (AMP)—one of the most radical and controversial anti-Israel groups in the United States —spent this past week training anti-Israel activists to send them into lobbying meetings with members of Congress. Among AMP's partners in this effort were the anti-Zionist Jewish Voice for Peace, UNRWA-USA, and even the NAACP.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi declared Wednesday a solemn day and even wore black as the House voted to impeach President Donald Trump. She told the Democrats to behave and not celebrate the impeachment. Many Democratic representatives refused to toe the line. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff and others had a celebratory dinner the night before. Rep. Rashida Tlaib, who screamed "impeach the mother f*cker" after her swearing-in, posted a happy and gleeful video on her way to vote.

In a recent post, I documented how American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) ejected me from its annual conference Thanksgiving weekend because it was afraid I would provide negative coverage. For background on the harassing treatment I received, see Fearing Negative Coverage, ‘American Muslims for Palestine’ Conference Ejects Legal Insurrection Reporter. Now we know why AMP wanted to cleanse the audience of media who could report accurately on what was going on: The AMP conference was an anti-Israel, anti-Semitic hatefest, and the keynote speaker was Democratic Representative Rashida Tlaib, who has worked with the group on many occasions.
