Rashida Tlaib shoots within her own party

Rep[rehensible] Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) went after infidels in her own Party yesterday after criticism was leveled at anti-Semite Ilhan Omar (D-MN) for sloughing off what happened at the 9/11 attacks in 2001. 

Tlaib accused Nancy "Hands-a-Blazin'" Pelosi of racism and using minority Congressional colleagues as "tokens of diversity."

When the left accuses the left of racism, it doesn't get any better than that.

Fox News reports that Tlaib "claimed in a Twitter message Saturday that she and other minority members of the party have been used as tokens whenever the party wants to project an image of inclusiveness."

Well, yes, they elected her, Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Obviously-Comatose, didn't they? Are they tokens or outliers?

Tlaib joined a number of Islamic activists on Twitter who were accusing Pelosi, who Tweeted that 9/11 was "sacred ground," of not doing enough to defend Omar against what they felt were unfair attacks over comments she made that "some people did something" on September 11th.

I agree with Tlaib; Pelosi should have done something. She should have immediately thrown Omar's butt off the Foreign Affairs Committee and publicly admonished her. In fact, one has to wonder where Omar's true allegiance lies: with the United States of America, or with Islamic global ambitions.

Tlaib pointed out that several 2020 Democratic presidential candidates have called comments criticizing Omar "incitement to violence" -- a legal exception to the First Amendment's right to freedom of speech, and a punishable crime -- but that Pelosi has chosen instead to ask Trump and others to simply tone down their rhetoric.

It is not an incitement to violence if Trump doesn't call for violence. It's called First Amendment rights and just because Omar has the same right, does not mean she can't be questioned on it or held accountable. She doesn't get "Muslim Privilege" anymore than Trump gets "White Privilege."

Tlaib, says, Pelosi and others in Democratic leadership are actively racist. For Tlaib, everybody who does not meet her intersectional approval, is a racist. This is a term she and others throw around like confetti.

"They put us in photos when they want to show our party is diverse,” Tlaib, who appears to be white, wrote on social media. “However, when we ask to be at the table, or speak up about issues that impact who we are, what we fight for & why we ran in the first place, we are ignored. To truly honor our diversity is to never silence us.” 

Bingo! She pulled the Victim Card.

“More and more we're realizing that POC [people of color] are used as props by @TheDemocrats,” Tlaib's retweeted post read. “When we run, we're told to wait our turn. When we speak about our struggles, we're told we're angry. When we ask them to stand up for us, they say we're being divisive.”

Pelosi's comments on Saturday did not defend Omar. Instead she simply asked President Trump not to use images of 9/11 in "political attacks," tweeting, "The memory of 9/11 is sacred ground, and any discussion of it must be done with reverence. The President shouldn’t use the painful images of 9/11 for a political attack."

What about Omar's "some people did something" reverence to what really happened on 9/11?
