RASHIDA TLAIB, having just won the Democrat primary is guaranteed to get Rep. John Conyers old seat in the November election as she is running unopposed. No Republican would waste time and money in this far left 13th Congressional District in Michigan.
Rep. John Conyers, who served in the House for more than 50 years, represented the district before resigning in December amid allegations that he sexually harassed female staff members. As far as Muslims in congress go, Rashida will be replacing the truly vile Hamas-supporting, Israel-hating Muslim democrat congressman from Minnesota – Keith Ellison.
RashidaforCongress Rashida Tlaib is the mother of two boys and the oldest of 14 children, born and raised in Detroit. She is graduate of Detroit Public Schools and the daughter of Palestinian immigrant parents.
Have a look at this tweet that Rashida recently posted of her son proudly displaying the ONE-FINGER ISIS SALUTE as he stands next to the ignorant weather guy who is also doing the salute at Channel4 News.
Rashida made history in 2008 by winning her race for State Representative and becoming the first Muslim woman to ever serve in the Michigan Legislature. Rashida served three terms, rising to the Democratic Chair of the House Appropriations Committee, where she restored and secured millions of dollars for free health clinics.
Rashida makes no secret of letting you know that she is an advocate for the people, the MUSLIM people. In the video below, Rashida describes herself as “a woman,” “a mom,” a Muslim,” “a Palestinian,” and “an Arab,” but not an American.
Working to repeal the anti-democratic and racist Emergency Manager law in Michigan.
Leading the national campaign to Take On Hate and combat rising anti-Arab and Muslim bigotry. Rashida was one of the first people to take a stand against the dangerous Donald Trump agenda, disrupting an August 2016 speech at the Detroit Economic Club and being thrown out of the meeting for speaking out against his hateful rhetoric.
One of her main goals is to propose legislation to drastically expand U.S. civil rights protections to cover discriminatory impacts (on Muslims), in addition to discriminatory intent (against Muslims), when elected to Congress – a sweeping change for America that would change the landscape for millions of Muslim residents, as you can in the below video.
