Rashida Tlaib, like AOC and Ilhan Omar, is quickly wearing out her welcome in the Democrat party. She claims that Islamophobia is running rampant through the Democrat party. To Tlaib, antisemitic ramblings are a good thing – but the moment you criticize someone for being a bigot, you become a racist. She is upset because Democrats favor the Israelis over the terrorists of Hamas to whom Tlaib has strong links. In only two months, Democrats are looking for candidates to run against the three charter members of the House Hitler Caucus. I can’t think of any time in the past that we’ve seen such an occurrence.
ALEX WAGNER: Why do you think people in your own party reacted so strongly against what [Rep. Omar] said?
REP. RASHIDA TLAIB: I am trying to figure it out. It’s just this past week, I feel, and I know this would be somewhat shocking for some, but I think Islamophobia is very much among the Democratic Party as well as the Republican Party. And I know that’s hard for people to hear, but there’s only been four members of Congress that are of Muslim faith. Three of them currently serve in this institution. More of us need to get elected, more of us need to understand as we come into this institution that I have a lot of work to do with my colleagues.
WAGNER: So you think Democrats have some Islamophobia and that’s at the root of some of this consternation?
REP. TLAIB: I think our country’s struggling with it.
