Wow. So after Radical Islamic Terrorists attacked our country killing thousands of Americans, Tlaib’s was afraid of her fellow Americans? Rep Rashida Tlaib was interviewed by Makers where she confessed her unwarranted fear after 9/11.
“It was probably my second year in law school when 9/11 happened,” Tlaib said. “And I was — I was really terrified of what was going to happen to my husband, who’s only a green card holder at the time.”
“I immediately called my brothers and told them to be very careful who you hang out with, telling my sisters, you know, just be real careful out there, and being really afraid of my fellow Americans,” she admitted. “It really pushed me to be more involved, and I got really curious and really angry. And I think that combination got me, you know, in front of a number of issues in the city of Detroit.”
But this is not the first time Tlaib has had an odd reaction when it comes to 9/11. Back when Omar marginalized 9/11 she jumped to her defense.
“They do that all the time, especially women of color, they take our words out of context because they’re afraid because we speak truth, we speak truth to power,” Tlaib said.
“My sister Ilhan Omar, what she was talking about, was uplifting people by supporting their civil liberties and civil rights. She has always, always condemned any strategy, especially of a person directly impacted by being a refugee herself.
“The fact that people are taking those words out of context and endangering the life of Rep. Omar is immoral, it’s wrong and it needs to be called out by many colleagues in saying they need to stop, stop targeting her this way. It’s absolutely putting her life in danger.”
So instead of thinking like the everyday American and worrying about Terrorists attacks Tlaib decided to be scared of Americans. Tlaib also seems to be ok with marginalizing 9/11 like Omar did. Omar’s statement was not taken out of context, she made it seem like 9/11 was no big deal. This is not something that should ever be ok. As a Politician that is serving Americans she should know better and apologize. Omar instead got away with her poor behavior because the Dem party has gone off the rails. Just who do the Dems think they serve? Why would they vote candidates like Tlaib and Omar in?
