Kevin McCarthy Makes a Boss Move Against Noted Anti-Semite Rashida Tlaib: Proves He Has a Backbone

One of the biggest problems Democrats have in Congress is that so many of them openly spit on Israel in general and the Jewish people in particular. In the House, most of it comes from The Squad that coddles terrorists and bash our biggest ally in the Middle East, Israel. The latest attack by Democrats in the House came from the news that Rashida Tlaib would be speaking at an anti-Semitic event scheduled in the Capitol Building.

Tlaib had planned to mark the “Nakba,” which is the Palestinian word for expressing that the Jewish state of Israel’s creation was a “catastrophe.” Other anti-Semitic groups, including some tied to terrorism, were slated to attend.

In the week prior, Tlaib had been ranting and raving on social media, claiming that “Nakba continues to this day.” She also reiterated her misleading claim that Israel is an “apartheid state” despite the fact that Arabs make up around 20 percent of the country’s population and enjoy full rights.

But while Nancy Pelosi may have put up with that nonsense, a new sheriff is in town. McCarthy stepped in, using his power of seniority as Speaker to reserve the room Tlaib had planned to do her event in (Free Beacon).

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy moved on Tuesday evening to block Michigan’s Democratic congresswoman Rashida Tlaib from hosting an anti-Semitic congressional event planned for Wednesday, the speaker’s office confirmed to the Washington Free Beacon.

McCarthy told the Free Beacon that he intervened late Tuesday to reserve the Capitol Visitor Center space where Tlaib was set to host a Wednesday event to mourn Israel’s founding as a “catastrophe.”  In its place, the speaker will lead a bipartisan briefing celebrating the 75th anniversary of the U.S.-Israel relationship.

“It’s wrong for members of Congress to traffic in anti-Semitic tropes about Israel,” McCarthy told the Free Beacon. “As long as I’m Speaker, we are going to support Israel’s right to self-determination and self-defense, unequivocally and in a bipartisan fashion.”

The anti-Semitic ‘Squad’ member came under fire this week after the Free Beacon reported that she would host the event alongside an array of anti-Israel groups, including some that have defended terrorism. Tlaib’s event was meant to celebrate the “Nakba,” a Palestinian term for the creation of Israel that loosely translates as “catastrophe.”

From Red State

One of the more astonishing things I’ve seen in regard to Congress over the last half decade is the fact that Tlaib is the most openly anti-Semitic member, yet she receives almost no pushback. In fact, I wrote a piece prior to McCarthy’s rise to power urging him to target Tlaib just as vigorously as Rep. Ilhan Omar.

For some reason, that hasn’t really happened. It’s as if Tlaib’s identity as a Palestinian makes even Republicans walk on eggshells around her. It shouldn’t be that way. Way back in 2019, RedState reported that Tlaib hosted a literal terrorist supporter in Joe Catron, who is affiliated with the PFLP, a US-designated terror group.

Yes, Omar has a rich history of anti-Semitism, but for my money, no other member of Congress has embraced hatred of Jews more than Tlaib. She’s spread Jewish blood libel with outright lies, she’s been supported by terrorist sympathizers, and she’s made many comments directly expressing her antisemitism. At some point, Republicans in the House should say enough and strip her of her committee assignments.

  1. I am hopeful MC Carthy is the man for the job. We need representatives with backbone and one can only hope he doesn’t cave to Biden with the phony budget. Let the gov’t shut down. Covid has shown that most of the gov’t is not needed for the system to function. Borrowing money to give to other Countries is insane as many of those Countries would never align themselves with our ideals or agenda’s.

  2. And WHEN will some of the squad members be charged with known campaign fund fraud? Under Garland? Probably never.

  3. This country needs to realize that people like members of the “Squad” really have no business in Congress as they are NOT representing the peoples wishes in Congress, just those of themselves or radical groups.

  4. It’s about time somebody stepped up to this RACIST person. When are our politicians going to get some cojones and stop this BS for good??????

  5. Good for the Speaker! There should be no room on the government campus for hate. The Capital and all the other buildings there represent our nation to the world, and it should be filled only with positive outlooks on topics and unity. We are one people who are to embrace differences with respect. Free speech is entitled to all citizens of the USA, but this hatred for one religion and country is despicable, especially being fueled to the public by a congresswoman! If she hates Israel so much, she should seek ways for peace. That’s what a representative of the US citizens should do! She is a disgrace to her constituents and should take her free speech elsewhere!

  6. Talib has shown that she is anti-American and a discredit to her state’s voters. She should be stripped of all committee assignments at a minimum and criticized as an anti-semite and as un-American.

  7. Some time being a “Republic” is hard…these POS have to be tolerated…

  8. That the Democrat party would support an Anti-Israel group (not an anti-semite group, but strictly an anti-Israel group) should be simultaneously surprising and not surprising, but since the Democrats’ hypocrisy is legendary, it isn’t.
