Seems Rep. Rashida Tlaib wants to give Ilhan Omar a run for her money when it comes to who can say the dumbest, most anti-Semitic things in this junior class of House Representatives. Tlaib claimed Palestinians tried to create a ‘safe haven’ for Jews who survived the Holocaust and that this ‘fact’ gave her a calming feeling.
You never, ever want to claim anything about or around the Holocaust gives you a ‘calming feeling.’
Welp, instead of apologizing for her comments, Tlaib was quick to play the victim card and claimed people who were ‘trying to silence her’ were doing so to push their racist, hateful agenda. Hey, don’t look at us, we just work here.
Policing my words, twisting & turning them to ignite vile attacks on me will not work. All of you who are trying to silence me will fail miserably. I will never allow you to take my words out of context to push your racist and hateful agenda. The truth will always win.

Policing her words? Alrighty then.
If the truth ‘will always win,’ Tlaib should go ahead and resign considering her own father has accused her of lying about her residence to win an election.
No one is silencing you. We are just NOT going to sit by as you deny the Holocaust and revise history. Never again. Am Yisrael Chai

But you know, she’s the victim here.
Your deflection drips with desperation.

If only people would stop holding her accountable for the anti-Semitic things she says!
Nobody has to take your words “out of context.” Their hatefulness and vileness stand on their own. You and @IlhanMN are the poster girls for anti-semitism.

We understood your words in context. Resign and go away.

Rashida, why do you never explain exactly what criticism you're respond to? For the sake of your followers, I've compiled it here:https://t.co/EcgsEBLd3M

She’s played the victim when saying stupid things before? GET outta here! We’re shocked.
Democrats hate it when you directly quote them. It's so inconvenient.

Ain’t THAT the truth?
We here at Twitchy know this probably better than anyone else. Can’t tell you the number of times a Democrat has been angry at us for using THEIR OWN WORDS.

Sums it up nicely.
