The 2018 elections brought a wave of Democrats into the House of Representatives.
And we’re starting to see the skeletons in all their closets.
This one Democrat’s terrorist connections will leave you outraged.
When Democrats retook the House of Representatives last November, they brought with them a massive wave of untested and unheard of Democrats to Washington from across the country.
Now, with just under a month after taking office, several Democrats are already in hot water for the skeletons in their closets.
One Democrat, in particular, continues to make headlines for all the wrong reasons, and this latest connection to a notable terrorist group will leave Americans stunned.
Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) is back in the headlines, after dominating news just a few weeks ago for calling President Trump a “mother******” during her own swearing-in party in downtown Washington.
She’s now being connected to a violent terrorist group in the middle east, whose anti-Semitic stances include the extermination of Israel and the deportation of Jewish people from across the region.
The Daily Mail reported, “Michigan first-term Rep. Rashida Tlaib has been pictured with a Palestinian activist who has praised Hezbollah and called Jews ‘Zionist terrorists.’”
Last weekend, one of Tlaib’s supporters tweeted a picture of himself with the Michigan Democrat at another ceremonial swearing-in event which took place in her home state.
“I was honored to be at Congresswoman @RashidaTlaib swearing in ceremony in #Detroit and private dinner afterward with the entire family, friends and activists across the country. #Palestine #TweetYourThobe #RashidaTlaib,” tweeted Abbas Hamideh.
Hamideh has a long social media trail connecting him to Hezbollah and other extremist groups in the Middle East.
In a 2015 tweet, he wrote of the leader of the terrorist group Hezbollah, “Always loved this heroic resistance leader! Long live Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah!”
The US State Department classifies Hezbollah as a terrorist organization with strong anti-Semitic views.
For his part, Hamideh seems to agree with those views.
He has previously tweeted that, “israel does not have a right to exist. The terrorist entity is illegal and has no basis to exist other than a delusional ISIS like ideology.”
Hamideh has also made statements in the past calling for Jewish people to be deported to Poland from Israel.
The fact that Tlaib would cozy up with a pro-Hezbollah activist who endorses displacing Jewish people and deporting them from Israel only reinforces what we already know about her at this point.
She’s endorsed the boycott divestment and sanctions movement against Israel, and has called for Palestine to replace Israel in the region.
Indeed, the controversy tells us little about the anti-Semetic views of Congresswoman Tlaib, as those were well-established when someone labeled Israel on her congressional office map “Palestine.”
What this controversy does tell us however is that many of her fellow Democrats outright refuse to condemn Tlaib’s rampant anti-Semitism and her willingness to coddle extremists who sympathize with Islamic terrorist groups.
Tlaib does all of this while pretending she’s only criticizing Israel, but the truth is she wants to wipe Israel off the face of the earth, not just criticize it.
