Here It Comes: Rep. Tlaib Blasts Dem Leadership

American Thinker
By Thomas Lifson
April 14, 2019

Excerpt:

The first overt sign of the trouble that lies ahead for Nancy Pelosi and the Democrat leadership with the emergence of a radical Muslim wing of the party arrived Saturday.

Following the discovery of a video clip of Rep. Omar referring to 911 as “some people did something,” the blowback has been fierce, including in deep blue New York City, where the wounds of death and destruction (and lingering health issues among first responders) still are very painful. Rep. Tlaib is not happy with what she perceives as inadequate support for her fellow Muslima in Congress, and extended the criticism on this specific issue by another Twitter user into a broader attack on the party leadership:

They put us in photos when they want to show our party is diverse. However, when we ask to be at the table, or speak up about issues that impact who we are, what we fight for & why we ran in the first place, we are ignored. To truly honor our diversity is to never silence us. https://t.co/7T1OlwS1YG

To say that Representatives Rashida Tlaib and Ihan Omar have chips on their shoulders would be an understatement. Both women embrace the notion of Muslim victimhood in a party that stokes the grievances of a variety of minorities who are encouraged to see themselves as victims and seek balm in the form of concessions from the majority. When the interests of these subgroups clash, the standard operating procedure of the Dems has been to co-opt the minority leadership and have them smooth over those conflicts in favor of the goodies that come from unity at the expense of the malign majority against whom they nurse their wounds.

But when religion becomes the basis for grievance, and when the radical version of that religion seeks as its sacred mission the destruction of an existing state and the imposition of a global theocracy based on its dogma, compromise becomes much more difficult.

So, we can expect Reps. Omar and Tlaib, backed up by their glamourous amiga-in-grievance Rep. Ocasio-Cortez, to continue to press demands that are unpalatable not simply to mainstream Americans, but to fellow members of the minority collation of the Democrats (such as Jews and black Christians). By criticizing the party’s treatment of them as tokens of diversity, they sow the seeds of a split.

Ayn Rand used to write about this sort of thing. She said when group rights take precedence over individual rights, groups will inevitably come in conflict with each other. I'm not nearly as much of a fan of hers as I once was, but on this subject it is difficult to dispute her point.

It seems odd the party that prides itself on sticking together is doing anything but. It's comical really, "Thick as Thieves" could have been their rallying cry in the past, now it's more like, "Diversity Sucks!" Lol

All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others. Now the knife fight over which animals are most equal begins. It was inevitable.

Rashida Tlaib Accuses Dem Leadership Of Racism, Says Pelosi Uses Minority Members As ‘Tokens Of Diversity’

The Daily Wire
By Emily Zanotti
April 14, 2019

excerpt:

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) lashed out at Democrats — not Republicans — yesterday, in the wake of criticism leveled at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) for minimizing the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, accusing Dem leadership, including Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), of racism and using Congressional colleagues of color as "tokens of diversity."

Fox News reports that Tlaib "claimed in a Twitter message Saturday that she and other minority members of the party have been used as tokens whenever the party wants to project an image of inclusiveness."

She joined a number of Islamic activists on Twitter who were accusing Pelosi, who tweeted that 9/11 was "sacred ground," of not doing enough to defend Omar against what they felt were unfair attacks over comments she made that "some people did something" on September 11.

Omar's comments were, it seems, meant to allege that Muslims across the globe have been discriminated against and mistreated in the wake of the September 11 attacks — a point she was trying to use to justify her opposition to what she calls President Donald Trump's "Muslim ban," a travel restriction that prevents travelers from countries that actively sponsor and bankroll terrorist organizations from obtaining even temporary visas to visit the United States.

The ban itself has been altered several times. The final version, which bans residents of nine countries, seven of which are majority Muslim, has held up under legal scrutiny (so far).

Tlaib pointed out that several 2020 Democratic presidential candidates have called comments criticizing Omar "incitement to violence" — a legal exception to the First Amendment's right to freedom of speech, and a punishable crime — but that Pelosi has chosen instead to ask Trump and others to simply tone down their rhetoric.

That's because, Tlaib, says, Pelosi and others in Democratic leadership are actively racist.

Haven't heard from this terrorist sympathizer in a couple days. She needs to speak up more often.

I think it's kind' a neat to see Dems get a little of their own medicine, no-one spreads hate and discontent better than your average Lefty. Poor Nancy, just when she thought she had the world by the ass as the new Majority Leader, these pesky examples of her party's diversity won't just shut up and go away. Gonna take a big shovel to fill the hole Dems have dug for themselves... :thumbsup:

Every sentence this lunatic utters contains the word "racism", or some variant. Remove the word and she'd be mute.

Basically, intersectionality ends up stepping all over itself because it isn’t based on any sound principles. It’s a popularity contest. Like when you were in the 6th grade.
