“Shades of Hitler.” So goes the claims of some who are increasingly concerned by the now blatant anti-Semitism that is running rampant throughout the Democrat Party. Presently the one garnering the most attention for their alleged racist leanings is Democrat Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (of the now infamous promise regarding President Trump that she would “impeach the mother******.”)
It is yet another example that exposes the blatant media bias that continues to attempt to portray the Trump White House as divisive when in fact it is so often those opposed to the president who are themselves the most extremist and divisive. President Trump has appointed more women to high levels within his administration than any other president in American history. Black and Hispanic unemployment are at all time lows. Wages for women and minorities are up – big time. The true record of the Trump administration is among the most unifying of any in modern history – and certainly far better than that of his presidential predecessor, Barack Obama.
ABOVE: One of the new faces of the Democrat Party is reported anti-Semite, Rashida Tlaib.
RASHIDA TLAIB’S TIES TO ANTI-SEMITISM RUN DEEPER THAN PREVIOUSLY KNOWN
Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s ties to anti-Semitism run deeper than previously known, a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation found.
Tlaib, part of a heralded freshman class of House Democrats, has already come under scrutiny over her positions on Israel and ties to fringe figures. But TheDCNF’s investigation uncovered additional ties to anti-Semitism.
Tlaib is a member of the Facebook group “Palestinian American Congress,” where members often demonize Jews. The group’s founder, Palestinian activist Maher Abdel-qader, was a key fundraiser for Tlaib and organized campaign events for her around the country.
In January 2018, Abdel-qader shared an anti-Semitic video that claimed Jews aren’t actually Jewish, and invented their historical claim to Israel and secretly control the media.
The video, which described Jews as “satanic,” also questioned whether 6 million Jews actually died in the Holocaust.
“Research the truth about the Holocaust, and you’ll definitely start to question what you thought you knew,” the video’s narrator says.
Abdel-qader shared the video both on his personal Facebook page and within the group that now includes Tlaib.
Abdel-qader wasn’t the only anti-Israel activist with ties to Tlaib during her campaign. Women’s March co-chair Linda Sarsour was an early Tlaib supporter and also attended her swearing-in ceremony in Washington, D.C., earlier this month.
Sarsour and other Women’s March leaders have come under scrutiny for their support of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, a notorious anti-Semite who has praised Hitler and described Jews as “satanic.” (RELATED: Maxine Waters Attended Nation of Islam Convention Where Farrakhan Defended Suicide Bombers)
Palestinian-American professor Amer Zahr, a supporter of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, appeared at campaign events and also attended Tlaib’s swearing-in ceremony. Zahr posted a Facebook video he recorded from Tlaib’s office to show that he had re-labeled Israel as “Palestine” on a map hanging in the office.
An article recounting the label change received positive reactions when shared within the “Palestinian American Congress” group that Tlaib belongs to on Facebook.
One group member commented: “They will be wiped off the map soon inshallah [God willing].”
Tlaib previously came under fire after posing for a picture with Palestinian activist Abbas Hamideh, a supporter of Hezbollah who believes Israel shouldn’t exist, at her swearing-in ceremony.
The left-leaning Anti-Defamation League demanded an explanation from Tlaib, who told the Detroit Free Press on Friday that she didn’t know who Hamideh is.
Nine months before the controversy, in April 2018, Tlaib posted a picture of herself and Hamideh on Facebook.
What the above information outlines is chilling proof of the degree of anti-Semitism that now permeates the Democrat Party. A more honest media would be calling this out but instead, repeated excuses are made for what is clearly an agenda of hate that sadly legitimizes the “shades of Hitler” charge some are now making against Democrats. The Democrat Party continues to embrace this agenda of hate. It owes the American people an explanation. Better yet, it needs to disavow figures like Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib NOW not later.
