In just the latest example of far-left Democrat Muslim ideologues turning on their own, virulent Jew-hating Muslim, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), has called for a boycott of left-wing comedian Bill Maher’s HBO show because he criticized her anti-Israel rhetoric.
BizPacReview The brouhaha erupted after Maher said that Tlaib’s past comments like “Jews control the world, control the money” is why Israel was reluctant to allow Tlaib to visit. A foaming-at-the-mouth Tlaib reacted by saying “maybe folks should boycott his show.”
Tlaib then played the Race Card and invoked apartheid to suggest that Maher is racist because he’s white.
Bill Maher also said the anti-Israel boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) movement supported by Tlaib and fellow anti-Semite Ilhan Omar is “a bullsh*t purity test by people who want to appear woke but actually slept through history class.”
Maher further suggested that Tlaib’s anti-white sentiments play a major role in her anti-Semitism and well-documented disdain for Israel.
“It’s predicated on this notion that the Jews in Israel — mostly white — [are wrong because they’re white]. The Palestinians are browner, so they must be innocent and correct, and the Jews must be wrong. As if the occupation came right out of the blue, that this completely peaceful people found themselves occupied,” Maher explained on his HBO show “Real Time with Bill Maher” on Friday night.
Maher’s thoughts were clearly not on-the-spot criticisms as he went on to quote BDS movement founder Omar Barghouti as saying, “No Palestinian — rational Palestinian, not a sellout Palestinian — will ever accept a Jewish state in Palestine.”
Maher added, “So that’s where that comes from, this movement. Someone who doesn’t even want a Jewish state at all. Somehow this side never gets represented in the American media. It’s very odd.”
Tlaib and Omar hijacked the news this week amid reports that Israel had considered blocking them from the country due to the duo’s long history of anti-Semitism.
Israel later offered to allow Tlaib to visit in order to see her grandmother, but the congresswoman rejected their offer and was roundly criticized for her showboating antics.
President Donald Trump slammed Tlaib for concocting an inane PR stunt that backfired on her.
The president rebuked Tlaib after she “obnoxiously turned down” Israel’s offer to allow her to visit, and said Tlaib’s grandmother was the real winner in this whole debacle.
Last month, the Democrat-led House of Representatives passed a resolution opposing a boycott of Israel. Both Omar and Tlaib, who are Muslim, voted against the resolution.
Republican Congressman Lee Zeldin from New York slammed Omar for her anti-Semitic rhetoric, noting that she supports anti-Jewish groups linked to the terrorist group Hamas. Zeldin’s reaction came after Omar gave a speech during a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing supporting a resolution promoting the BDS movement. The BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement is a Palestinian-led campaign promoting the punishment of Israel.
“The BDS movement has not distanced itself from Hamas, a designated foreign terrorist organization,” Zeldin said. “BDS supporters individually are not distancing themselves from Hamas, either.”
Zeldin pointed out that a top Hamas official recently called for the death of all Jews. Predictably, Tlaib and Omar refused to condemn this violent rhetoric.
Reminder: People who hate Jews also despise Christians.
