House censures Tlaib

The House voted to censure Rep. Rashida Tlaib Tuesday night, rebuking the Michigan Democrat for her criticism of Israel following Hamas’s unprecedented attack on the U.S. ally.

The chamber adopted the reprimand in a 234-188-4 vote, with 22 Democrats bucking party leadership to support the resolution and four Republicans voting against it.

The vote is the culmination of a week-plus effort by Republicans to punish Tlaib — the only Palestinian American serving in Congress — for comments that have drawn condemnation from both sides of the aisle.

And it marks the pinnacle of the current controversy surrounding Tlaib. The congresswoman posted a video on X over the weekend that said President Biden “supported the genocide of the Palestinian people” and included clips of protesters changing “from the river to the sea,” which the Anti-Defamation Leagues characterizes as antisemitic.

A worse decision by those 33 Democrats.

I trust she said something damaging to republic or the institution of the House, not that she dared express a viewpoint merely contrary to the majority.

She expressed support for Hamas. Continued to imply Israel bombed a hospital

So now we have thought police. Unless she incited riots or otherwise openly called for illegal actions, this is scary.

Then we have established that promulgating lies is justification for censure. Funny how that is forgotten when the liar is a Republican.

I am fine with censoring her as long as we also censor TRUMPF and do not allow him to hold any office ever again.

Of course she's going to feel a certain way. Those are her people. But you have actual election deniers and insurrection supporters voting to censure a colleague that was neither. That's some BS. I would have defended her based on that.

Did you look into exactly what "centuring" means, does?

Censor and censure. Two different things, check it out and come back.

Censor is what leftists do against those with different points of view

before it was a bad decision by anyone else,
it was a bad decision by Tlaib.

Made friends with some portion of the population of the 13th District of 675k.

Way more will give no fks about her than before.
65% of US population supports Israel, which doesn't necessarily mean bibi or his actions.



!#$@@$#!

What if the hokey pokey really is what it’s all about?

“from the river to the sea,” is not simply hate speech, it is a call to murder every Jew living in Israel. On purpose. It is an incitement to genocide.

The people who claim it is a metaphor are being disingenuous. Tlaib should know better. This kind of language is not the way to help her people.

My read is that she definitely went too far.

But her recent 4 min speech was spot-on. Palestinian citizen lives are not being as valued by current politics as non-Palestinians.

I'm not saying it's right or excusing it. But this has happened in every conflict in human history. One side de-humanizes the other.

As I have said here before, until one side stops killing the children of the other, peace is impossible.

It's in their charter, their daily spews, their actions. Hamas is an extremist genocidal terror group.

This should be repeated as often as we can.

But the Palestinians who are not members or supporters of terrorists groups are not.

True enough, but anyone who uses the phrase “from the river to the sea,” needs to research the history of its use.
