House Rep. Rashid Tlaib (Marxist - MI) Censured on 2nd Try
« on: November 08, 2023, 06:30:25 AM »
MTG's initial attempt to censure Tlaib, the only "Palestinian-American" in Congress and a confirmed anti-Semite, failed last week, largely because more than a few Republicans had an issue with the word "insurrection" and a slightly smaller issue with Free Speech.

One argument countermanding the "Free Speech" excuse is, "Yep, you have the right to free speech but that doesn't mean you're not accountable for what you say." I tend to favor the opposite side, believing firmly that while yes, you can and should be held accountable for what you say, but you have the right to say it. Tlaib did not deny making those statements.

The term "insurrection" - a pretty clear reference to J6 - was, IMHO, correctly interpreted and was justly thrown out. Tlaib is a vile cretin who should be expelled from Congress rather than just censured, but the cleaned-up version by McCormick carried the day.

The vote was 234-188. Twenty-two Dems voted to censure with 4 Repubs voting no, and another 4 (1 Dem and 3 Repubs) voting "present."

Not surprisingly, Tlaib remains defiant, screaming that she will not "be silenced."

Also not surprisingly, in a tit-for-tat move, the Dems introduced another Resolution for Censure of Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL) after he compared "innocent Palestinian civilians" to "innocent Nazi civilians."

And drilling down a bit further, it appears that the U.N. partners with Hamas in "educating" those Palestinians. Should we be surprised that the UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency (cough, gag, choke) is a front for Hamas, supported by the U.S. thanks to SharterJoe Obama and his cretins? I would think not.

And yet those U.N. smiling thugs continue to enjoy diplomatic immunity in NYC.

Yet another illustration of treason committed by Barry.
