Dem Rep Rashida Tlaib Blames ‘Racist Idiots’ for Criticizing Her Historical Illiteracy on Holocaust

The Congresswoman refused to back down...

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) blamed "racist idiots" on Monday for criticizing her false historical narrative about Palestinian Arabs assisting Jews after the Holocaust.

Tlaib, a supporter of a "one-state solution" to the Israel-Palestinian conflict, praised her Arab ancestors for giving up their "dignity" and "lives" to help Jews who survived the Holocaust, while also complaining the situation was "forced" on them, all while adding this part of the history of the Holocaust gave her a "calming" feeling.

...

NBC late-night host Seth Meyers, an open supporter of Democrats, allowed Tlaib to provide "context" for her comments in a sycophantic interview on Monday. Tlaib again said her ancestors died or gave up their "human dignity" to "provide a safe haven for Jews in our world," and she said she wanted to honor that. Her remarks were again false, but Meyers provided no pushback.

"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 said. "You know, I got a text message 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.'"

The crowd laughed and applauded.

But even CNN called Tlaib out for her remarks. As reported by the Free Beacon

During Monday afternoon's broadcast of Inside Politics, CNN host John King corrected Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) for her recent remarks that Palestinians provided a "safe haven" for Jews after the Holocaust.

King noted that Palestinian leaders had sided with Hitler during World War II.

In a podcast for Yahoo News released on Saturday, Tlaib said, "there's always kind of a calming feeling," when she thinks about how her Palestinian ancestors provided a "safe haven" for Jews when the state of Israel was officially established in 1948.

Tlaib, "ignored the fact that Palestinian leaders at the time allied themselves with Hitler and that total war is how the Arab world reacted to the declaration of Israeli independence," King said before introducing a panel discussion on the controversy.
