The Democrats’ terrible, horrible, no-good, very-bad 2019 continues with this bombshell about newly elected Democratic Representative, Rashida Tlaib. There were already concerns about certain anti-Semitic statements and actions floating around, but the fact that she actually wrote for Louis Farrakhan is just … wow.
“Representative Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) wrote an op-ed in 2006 for Louis Farrakhan’s digital publication Final Call, which routinely publishes anti-Semitic content…” https://t.co/lNvYfr271F

Rashida had to outdo Ilhan ya’ know.
From the National Review Online:
Tlaib argues in the op-ed, which is dated October 4, 2006 and was resurfaced by Bier, that illegal immigrants shouldn’t face criminal charges or be deported for violating immigration law.
Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam, has long been known as an outspoken anti-Semite. In February 2006, months before Tlaib’s piece was published, he accused Jews of promoting homosexuality in order to harm the African-American community.
“These false Jews promote the filth of Hollywood that is seeding the American people and the people of the world and bringing you down in moral strength. . . . It’s the wicked Jews, the false Jews, that are promoting lesbianism, homosexuality. It’s the wicked Jews, false Jews, that make it a crime for you to preach the word of God, then they call you homophobic,” he said during his Saviour’s Day speech on February 26, 2006.
Of course, Tlaib’s peeps were quick to claim she hasn’t had any contact with Farrakhan in a long time but ahem … you are the company you keep, Rashida.
