Rashida Tlaib Says Freedom Of Speech Doesn’t Exist

Freedom of speech is, evidently, not in existence for Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).

Yesterday, in response to the well-deserved criticism of Ilhan Omar’s abhorrent statement branding the U.S. and Israel as terrorist organizations, Tlaib and the rest of The Squad ran to her defense. They made themselves the victims and worked overtime to claim victimhood for Omar. 

The media jumped into the game as well by making this more about Trump and anti-Muslim bias than Ilhan’s tasteless and bigoted remarks. 

Omar, who is one of the first Muslim women to serve in Congress and wears a hijab, has been a perpetual target for the right, including Donald Trump. As president, Trump often named her at rallies, and his criticism at one of them prompted his supporters to chant, “Send her back.” Omar, who was born in Somalia, is a naturalized American citizen.

“I am tired of colleagues (both D+R) demonizing @IlhanMN,” tweeted Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.). “Their obsession with policing her is sick. She has the courage to call out human rights abuses no matter who is responsible. That’s better than colleagues who look away if it serves their politics.

Criticism is now demonizing. Got it. As I noted yesterday, Ilhan and The Squad were ticked off because THEY want to be allowed to say whatever they want, even if it lands in the Congressional Record, with zero consequences. However, they also demand the right to criticize others and expect consequences. 

Tlaib, as with Ilhan Omar, shows us who she really is by the company she keeps. 

Rep. Rashida Tlaib took part in a fundraiser hosted by a Palestinian American activist accused of sharing anti-Semitic social media posts.

Details emerged after Tlaib confronted President Joe Biden to criticize his handling of the escalating crisis between Israel and Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip.

Tlaib delivered what was billed as a ‘special message’ of ‘solidarity’ during an online campaign event which counted Maher Abdel Qader among its hosts.

Qader, a donor and fundraiser to Tlaib’s campaign, is on record with anti-semitic content and attacks on Israel. When criticized for her participation in the event, Tlaib played the victim.

Tlaib, in May, accused Prime Minister Netanyahu of war crimes. 

Yesterday, while leaping to Ilhan Omar’s defense, Tlaib sent the following tweet out to her 1.5 million Twitter followers. 

Read her tweet again. 

A. She is overtly implying that any criticism of her or Ilhan is stemming from bigotry and racism

B. She is claiming victimhood based upon her religion

C. She is claiming that her Freedom of Speech is non-existent. 

The irony is deep and wide here. Tlaib is claiming that freedom of speech doesn’t exist for her or Ilhan in Congress. She’s claiming that WHILE bitching about it on Twitter. 

Tlaib is utilizing her Freedom of Speech to try and convince her followers that the House Democrat leadership is stifling her ability to speak. 

No, what the Democrat leadership did was criticize Ilhan Omar for her remarks and request clarification. However, according to Tlaib criticism equals taking away her Freedom of Speech. 

Sorry toots, that’s not how this works. 

Rashida Tlaib still has her freedom of speech. However, that freedom doesn’t give her extra special privileges of saying whatever she wants without consequences. 

She’s right about one thing. Freedom of Speech for Muslim women DOESN’T exist…in countries such as Iran and Palestine.

However, it DOES exist for us all here, including Rashida Tlaib, in the United States because of that wonderful document called The Constitution. 

Irony is Rashida Tlaib, a sitting Congresswoman, whining about her non-existent Freedom of Speech while exercising that very same right on Twitter.

    Headline could also be “Tlaib runs her lying mouth, claiming she can’t run her lying mouth.”

  • Scott says:

    “”defend and protect the Constitution against all enemies, both foreign and domestic”… Tlaib and the rest of the squad seem intent on making clear who that line refers to. Though with all this woke crap going on, wanna bet it gets taken out of the oath in the near future?

  • ROP says:

    In a sane world these brier bushes would be in an insane asylum or prison. Here they are running ( ruining) the country

  • Lloyd says:

    Sad, that these obvious “anti-Americans” were ever elected. Must wonder how those who voted for them feel now.

  • Al says:

    Her name in The Squad is “The Ugly One”.

  • CaptDMO says:

    No, Islam

  • Mark Nord says:

    The criticism oh Omar is that she hates Jews and sides with Hamas. Then calls the US as bad as Hamas. Her issue is that her religion and herself hates Jews period. She has no problem expressing this. She is being racist against Jews and everyone is agreeing with her. Islam is a religion of hatred and intolerance of anything not Muslim.

  • DM says:

    islam, is a CRIMINALLY SAVAGE POLITICAL AGENDA masquerading as a religion. No more no less. The muslims use The Constitution to whine that religious freedom means we have to accept them.

    The Constitution is not a suicide pact!
    If a “religion” is in fact hostile to our country, there is no reason for importing it.
    Though we have religious freedom we are not bound to accept a religion that is detrimental to our Republic. Our Constitutional Republic must be protected from enemies both foreign and domestic. And in fact islam is not a religion but a political agenda that controls every aspect of it’s followers daily lives, with the after thought that allah wills it. There is nothing in the Constitution and Amendments, Bill of Rights or the Declaration of Independence that would cause me to think that religious freedom would include any religion(s) that will not allow the freedom of others to practice their religion. Islam does in fact deny all other religions and demands that those who do not follow islam submit to it or die.

  • the Bruce says:

    She forgot her Oath as a Congress ‘person’.

    • Scott says:

      She didn’t forget it, taking that oath just falls under the tenant of islam that says it’s ok to lie to infidels…

  • […] there’s Rashida Tlaib who, courtesy of the Working Families Party, deciding she needs to lecture the moderate Democrats. […]
