On Saturday, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., called for a political “revolution” on Twitter, further stating that she would like to change the entire political system in America.
“We have to make the tough, courageous changes that completely transform a political and economic system that is now built for corporations (and profits), not people,” she said.
“Choosing the status quo means doing nothing and giving up. We need a political revolution,” she added.

Tlaib wrote the tweet in reference to a June interview she gave to Next Left. The Michigan lawmaker talked about how she and her fellow “Squad” members are “pretty new” to the political arena as women of color and argued that they are “easy targets because people easily will fear us if they just tell people, ‘Be scared.’”
“‘She’s Palestinian, you should be scared. She’s also Muslim. Be scared,’ but it’s because you know the, the GOP, the individual one in the White House, is feeding into hate because that’s all they have right now,” she said, placing the blame squarely on President Trump.
“They don’t have a plan. They don’t know what they’re going to do about infrastructure. The health-care crisis, the immigration, humanitarian crisis that we’re facing right now in our country, it’s pretty unprecedented what we’ve seen in our country,” she continued, adding that there is a “real human impact” of “doing nothing.”
“You know, this is an institution that is very much broken right now and very much in need of an injection of, you know, looking at the real human impact of doing nothing,” she said.
As Breitbart noted, this isn’t the first time she’s accused the president of attacking her and her fellow far-left “Squad” members.
Reaction on Twitter was pretty much what you’d expect:
The only changes we need is the removal of you and your buddies.— Commissioner (@Commissioner_25) September 7, 2019
We dont need any revolution.— Black Stang. (@woody_61953) September 7, 2019
Actually, we already had a revolution, which led to the nation’s founding and the Constitution. It sounds to us like Tlaib wants to undo all that and turn America into something else…
Without profit, Americans would be reduced to slave labor. Workers must be compensated for their work.— Fisher (@ryanfisher122) September 7, 2019
Socialism is not answer, Capitalism is.
Political revolutions lead to civl war and death, which is something we don't need.
Maybe civil war and bloodshed is what she really wants…
