The Democrats now own anti-Semitic speech and if you don’t hate Jews, Tlaib will call you an idiot racist. Only those who strive to destroy Israel need to apply. After Tlaib lied about how the Palestinians treated Jews during WWII is no different than the Nazis did.
The Palestinians aligned themselves with Nazi Germany. Tlaib claimed that Palestinians gave Jews a safe shelter. That is a total lie but even though she has been called on her historical misrepresentations, she continues to lie about it and then calls everyone that pointed out that she was lying were idiots and racists.
Democratic Party leaders are not demanding that Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) apologize for offensive remarks about the Holocaust. Instead, they are demanding that Republicans apologize to her for their outraged reactions to her comments.
On Saturday, Tlaib told the Skulduggery podcast that she had a “calming feeling” when thinking about the Holocaust because, she claimed (falsely), Palestinians had provided “a safe haven for Jews.” Tlaib brought up the Holocaust in answer to a question about her support for a “one-state solution” that would replace Israel with a Palestinian state.
Republicans were sharply critical of Tlaib, who has a history of antisemitic and anti-Israelrhetoric. Some focused on her odd remark about a “calming feeling”; others attacked her revisionist history of the Holocaust and the Palestinian response. As even CNN noted, Palestinian Arab leadership collaborated with Hitler and opposed Jewish immigration.
Republicans’ desperate attempts to smear @RepRashida & misrepresent her comments are outrageous. President @realDonaldTrump & House GOP should apologize to Rep. Tlaib & the American people for their gross misrepresentations.

If you read Rep. @RashidaTlaib’s comments, it is clear that President Trump and Congressional Republicans are taking them out of context. They must stop, and they owe her an apology.

We must stand up and speak out when Republicans attempt to divide us. Their efforts to twist @RepRashida’s words and use faith as a weapon are unconscionable.

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
