This top Democrat’s racist scandal from their past is worse than anyone thought
Every day, another Democrat is caught up in a racist scandal from their past.
Now an old skeleton in the closet threatens the career of one of the party’s rising stars.
That’s because everyone is learning the Democrats’ true beliefs.
Rashida Tlaib is one of two Muslim women elected to Congress this year.
Along with Ilhan Omar, Tlaib has seen accusations of anti-Semitism cloud her first month in Washington, D.C.
It became harder for Tlaib to deny she hates Jews when it surfaced that she published a 2006 column for Final Call, a publication that is the House Organ for racist and anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
Fox News reports:
But it now has been unearthed that she was a guest contributor in 2006 to the publication that reprints Farrakhan’s anti-Semitic comments and offers their defense.
“Lost in the often-vitriolic national quarrel over immigration reform is any examination of proposed measures that would result in excessive punishment, such as detention and deportation, for the most minor offenses,” Tlaib wrote in a 2006 post in the Final Call. “Concern for ‘national security’ has introduced unprecedented insecurity to living in the United States as a legal permanent resident.”
The column, which takes an issue with deportations for minor offenses, remains to be accessible online and was first pointed out by blogger Jeryl Bier on social media.
A spokesperson for Tlaib told Fox News that the article was from 2006 and “was not an endorsement of Farrakhan or anyone for that matter,” adding that the congresswoman “has not had any direct contact with Farrakhan and condemns his anti-Semitic and anti-LGBTQ views.”
Tlaib and Omar threaten to permanently brand the Democrats as the party of anti-Semitism.
Many younger Democrats have no issue expressing their hostility toward Israel.
That is now showing through in their party’s elected officials.
