WATCH: Rep Tlaib Blames Islamophobic Democrats for Rep. Omar Backlash
Everyone has a hot take about anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar's anti-Semitic comments (see WATCH: Jewish Congressman Explains His No Vote for Sham “Anti-Hate” Bill and Nancy Pelosi Defends Ilhan Omar’s Anti-Semitic Comments by Comparing Her to a Child). Rep. Rashida Tlaib has the greatest take of all. Democrats criticized anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar's anti-Semitic comments because of rampant Islamophobia in her own party.
I'm so here for this.
"You know, I'm 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."
Time out. I need a minute to inject this straight into my veins.
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, but more of us need to understand as we come into this institution that I have a lot of work to do with my colleagues.
Here, maybe this new ranking system will help.
Muslim's are currently #1 in the most recent marginalization rankings. That allows them to make any bigoted comment they want about everyone who is under them. Plus with their title holder privilege, no one else on the rankings can criticize them about anything ever. Hence the accusations of Islamophobia.
Basically, the left going all in on identity politics for the past decade is starting to backfire on them. It's awesome to watch.
