Share on GAB

GOP lawmakers are now calling on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to take action against Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib for outrageous comments she made during an appearance on Yahoo News’ “Skullduggery” podcast last week.

“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,” she 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? But they did it in a way that took their human dignity away, right? And it was forced on them,” she added.

Here’s a video of her statement:

Not only is Tlaib’s “calming” statement outrageous and offensive, it is also full of revisionist history given that the ‘Palestinian’ Grand Mufti actually sided with the Nazis.

In fact, The Blaze reminds us, “One leader in particular, Haj Amin al-Husseini, even maintained a close relationship with SS commander Heinrich Himmler, the mastermind behind the Nazi ‘final solution.'”

The Blaze report added:

Top Republican House leaders, including Minority Whip Steve Scalise (La.) and GOP Conference Chairman Liz Cheney (Wyo.), sternly rebuked Tlaib.

“There is no justification for the twisted and disgusting comments made by Rashida Tlaib just days after the annual Day of Holocaust Remembrance. More than six million Jews were murdered during the Holocaust; there is nothing ‘calming’ about that fact,” Scalise said in a statement. “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.”

Meanwhile, Cheney called on Democratic leadership to reprimand Tlaib for spreading “vile anti-Semitism.”

“I call on Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi and Leader [Steny] Hoyer to finally take action against Representative Tlaib and other members of the Democratic caucus who are spreading vile anti-Semitism,” she said. “All of us, regardless of party, must stand as Americans against the evil of anti-Semitism. If the Democratic leadership continues to stand by in silence, they are enabling the spread of evil.”

Tlaib responded by attacking critics as liars, racists and extremists:

She also issued a statement claiming she didn’t say what she actually said.

Apparently, we’re supposed to ignore what she actually said…
