Tlaib Says She Needs To Speak To Americans “Racist Idiots At Fourth Grade Level”

on

Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib, wouldn’t back down from her controversial comments about having a “calming feeling” whenever she thinks that Palestinians created a “safe haven for Jews” after the Holocaust.

These comments were brought up during her appearance on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” on Monday night, suggesting that she should be speaking to “racist idiots” at a fourth-grade level.

Tlaib drew quick backlash for her ridiculous comments that she made during a Yahoo News podcast interview.

According to Fox News:

Critics accused her of saying that the WWII genocide of six million Jews gave her a “calming feeling” as well as offering revisionist history for claiming that Palestinians welcomed Jews to the Middle East when Palestinian leader Grand Mufti Haj Amin el Husseini was actually an ally of Adolph Hitler and met with the dictator in 1941.

Tlaib began by explaining to “Late Night” host Seth Meyers that her grandmother lives in the West Bank, which she referred to as “the occupied territories of Palestine” and how many of her ancestors “died” or “gave up their livelihood” to provide that safe haven for Jews, which she wanted to “recognize and honor.”

“I want all of us to feel safe. All of us deserve human dignity, no matter our backgrounds, no matter our ethnicity, no matter even our political opinions, we all deserve that kind of equality and justice. And, you know, for me, I wanted to uplift that and bring that to light and it was unfortunate,” Tlaib explained.

“You know, I got a text from a friend who’s like, ‘Hey, next time, you know, really clarify. Maybe talk like a fourth grader because maybe the racist idiots would understand you better.'”

“I will continue to speak truth to power and continue to uplift my grandmother through love and that’s all I can do is continue to share the human impact of what it means to be a Palestinian in the occupied territory,” the freshman congresswoman added.

Seth Meyers responded by saying it “wouldn’t hurt” if everyone spoke on a “fourth-grade level” about the complex history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. He also told Tlaib that there’s a “bad-faith argument” regarding the notioned that she was “calmed” by the Holocaust, but mentioned that there was a “good-faith argument” that her history was “not in alignment with everyone else.”

Tlaib was widely condemned by GOP lawmakers as well as President Trump, who accused her of “tremendous hatred,” and was widely defended by Democratic lawmakers including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif, who called the “smear” attempt “outrageous.”

There's a supreme irony when a radical American- hating Muslim has the gall to accuse anyone of racism. Both Tlaib and Omar are an insult to every thing that this Country has always stood for and especially to our Constitution. Most of all their very presence disgraces and contaminates the Halls of Congress. However, if Tlaib thinks she should talk at a fourth grade level, she should confine her comments to some of her Democrat colleagues. Just be sure not to present any facts o them. They hate and reject the truth.
