Rashida Tlaib whining about being shushed is particularly rich. The axis of evil — Tlaib, Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are on the front page of every newspaper and lead most cable and broadcast news networks daily, and she comp;ains about being shushed. The gall. These are the new stars of the Democrat Party and the new darlings of the left: the exponents of socialism and Jew-hatred.
The hardest part of serving in Congress as a WOC & as a "first" is how people hear you differently. No matter how much we take on the hate & stay true to who we are through our experiences, our voices are shushed and reduced. We aren't perfect, but neither is this institution.

“‘Our voices are shushed and reduced’: Rep. Rashida Tlaib reflects on being a woman of color in Congress,” Twitchy, February 12, 2019 (thanks to Wendy):
Their voices are shushed and reduced? Then why is CNN doing a segment on all the attention Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib are getting?
As always, CNN comes through with the chyron: “Some freshmen house Dems bring energy and issues.” Yes, they certainly have issues. On Monday, Tlaib lamented the station of women of color in Congress who must fight through the hate to be heard.
Might we suggest that Congress was never perfect, but it certainly was much closer to perfect before the newest hot mess of a freshman class was sworn in?
What was the purpose of this tweet, anyway? To garner sympathy? To take Congress down a peg? It’s hard out here for a congresswoman who sits down to dinner with a prominent donor who compares Israel to ISIS and publishes her work in Louis Farrakhan’s newsletter.
