American voters shouldn’t just their conscience in the Presidential elections, they should vote their humanity.
Holy Smokes: These Dems Defended Tlaib’s Vile Comments About The Holocaust
By Beth Baumann, Townhall, May 13, 2019:
Rep. Rashida Tlabi (D-MI) came under fire for making rather anti-Semitic comments about how the Holocaust gave her a “calming feeling.” Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Republican Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) condemned her comments and called on Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) to do the same.
President Donald Trump also chimed in on the controversy, saying Tlaib’s comments prove she’s anti-Semitic and has issues with the Jewish people:
Naturally, Tlaib’s team attempted to spin what she said. Instead of focusing on what she did say, Tlaib is making it sound as though Republicans are doing everything in their power to attack her. Apparently calling out her anti-Semitism is now “policing” her words and using them “to ignite vile attacks” on her.
Even though Pelosi and Hoyer were called on to condemn Tlaib, they instead backed her.
Give it up, we all know you never met a Muslim you didn’t want to vilify!
Your deep seeded hate and Islamophobia might be a tool to rally your base, but won’t get rid your colleagues. You just have to deal 💁🏽♀️ https://t.co/hMvvxLnmp5

What’s surprising though, is that Tlaib’s biggest supporter was none other than 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
Mr. President: Stop dividing the American people up by their religion, their race or their country of origin–and stop your ugly attacks against Muslim women in Congress. You are taking Rep. @RashidaTlaib's comments out of context and should apologize. https://t.co/QlYNn46zXQ

Thanks Amo @BernieSanders. Individual-1 is a lawless President that will do anything to distract the American people from the fact he is hurting our country, our democracy and our future. We will fight against hate together, and be stronger for it. https://t.co/DLkQe0cFDH

And Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) even seems to think this is a hateful attack on Muslim-American women in Congress.
People should seek the truth & read her comments. The incessant vilification of the first Muslim-American women in Congress is shameful.

We even had a member of the Democratic media complex defend Tlaib, saying Republicans are doing nothing but constantly trying to smear those who are critical of Israel.
People who actually care about anti-semitism should be deeply worried about the extremely cynical game being played with it to constantly smear @RashidaTlaib, @IlhanMN & other Israel critics. Nothing cheapens or trivializes the issue more than this tactic https://t.co/boLOOGfH2c

Just as was true of @IlhanMN's 9/11 comments, the only way to impose sinister meaning on @RashidaTlaib's words is to deliberately distort them, and trivialize anti-semitism to do it. Those endangering Jews are people like Steve Scalise & Liz Cheney https://t.co/ihzp7Y8Rdf

Let’s set the record straight, shall we?
Conservatives aren’t condemning Tlaib because she’s muslim. Conservatives aren’t attacking Tlaib because she’s a woman. Conservatives are disgusted by the comments she made. You know why? Because millions of innocent people died during the Holocaust for no reason other than the fact that they were Jewish. Millions of people died because they were seen as inferior to Hitler and the Nazis.
This has absolutely nothing to do with Tlaib’s race, religion or gender. This has everything to do with her thoughts on one of the greatest tragedies – if not the greatest – the world has ever seen.
Rewriting history is not only wrong but it’s dangerous.
Remember the saying: Those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it.
Changing and rewriting history can have the same implications.
