Democrats can’t get out of their own way. Their policies are becoming more and more destructive.
And this radical Democrat just suffered a humiliating defeat that has her career in ruins.
The U.S. House of Representatives has a narrow Republican majority.
And the GOP is hoping that their majority will be able to work to squash the Left’s radical agenda.
That was the case on Tuesday evening, as the House voted to censure Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) by a vote of 234-188.
Tlaib’s censure comes in the wake of anti-Israel comments in a video she posted on X (formerly Twitter).
In the video, the phrase “from the river to the sea” is said, which Rep. Rich McCormick (R-GA) says is a call “for the annihilation” of Israel.
McCormick is the one who brought forth the measure to censure Tlaib.
“If this is not worthy of censure, what is?,” McCormick said of Tlaib’s video.
“When you can call for the annihilation of a country and its people, if that’s not worthy of censure, what is?”
Tlaib, defended her use of the “from the river to the sea” phrase, by saying, “From the river to the sea is an aspirational call for freedom, human rights, and peaceful coexistence, not death, destruction or hate.”
“My work and advocacy is always centered in justice and dignity for all people no matter faith or ethnicity.”
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL), an organization that’s mission is to stop defamation towards Jewish people, believes the opposite regarding Tlaib’s defense of the pro-Palestinian slogan.
“It is fundamentally a call for a Palestinian state extending from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea, territory that includes the State of Israel, which would mean the dismantling of the Jewish state,” the ADL website explained.
“It is an antisemitic charge denying the Jewish right to self-determination, including through the removal of Jews from their ancestral homeland.”
Tlaib still charged forward in her defense of her criticisms towards Israel, telling the House floor on Tuesday that, “It is important to separate people and governments.”
“The idea that criticizing the Israeli government is antisemitic sets a dangerous precedent.”
Rep. Tlaib’s words have landed her in trouble among her colleagues in Congress.
Even 22 Democrats agreed with 212 Republicans when they voted “yes” for the censure measure.
