Apparently progressive Dem Rep. Earl Blumenauer is a lot angrier with his colleague Rashida Tlaib’s critics than he is with Tlaib’s most recent despicable, dishonest remarks about Israel:
People should seek the truth & read her comments. The incessant vilification of the first Muslim-American women in Congress is shameful.

Since when does calling someone out for their historical revisionism constitute “incessant vilification”? Rashida Tlaib isn’t being condemned because she’s Muslim; she’s being condemned because she’s an anti-Semite who bends over backwards to excuse anti-Semitism and anti-Jewish terrorism.
It should come as no surprise that Blumenauer’s pathetic and shameful attempt to cover for Tlaib’s anti-Semitism strikes the right note with Ilhan Omar:
And of course with Tlaib herself:
It's clear the GOP has no plan for moving this country forward, instead they want to sow hate and fear based on falsehoods. They want to strip folks of healthcare, they don't have an infrastructure plan, and they don't even talk about combatting white supremacy. #TakeonHate https://t.co/35dQAEyYyn

Talk about deflecting. Not only is Tlaib not sorry for what she said, but she’s actually trying to make Republicans look like the bad guys.
Anti Semite and revisionist says what ?

Playing the victim to cover your actions is getting real old.

It's clear you seek to rewrite history and lie to people and use your bully pulpit to spread your hatred and bigotry

You won’t even apologize for your clearly (at best) poor worded statement regarding Israel. If you want to combat hate, look at your own rhetoric.

If Rashida Tlaib is serious about taking on hate, she needs to quit pointing fingers, quit playing the victim, and get her own house in order.
