Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., one of AOC’s radical Democratic Socialists’ so-called “Squad” of pro-Hamas members, delivered a scathing diatribe in support of the Hamas Caucus at a Jews For Hamas rally on Wednesday, threatening Joe Biden while repeating the discredited story about Israel’s alleged “bombing of a Gaza Hospital”.
Tlaib used the letter to rile up the crowd of protesters, who were glued to her every word. She said things like, “They think that we are joking.” I mean, I think the White House and everyone thinks that we’re just going sit back and let this continue to happen” and “Hey, I want [Biden] to know, as a Palestinian-American, as also someone of Muslim faith, I’m not going to forget this.”
Pro-Hamas activists stormed the Capitol as she delivered her speech. They had repeatedly interrupted a Senate Foreign Relations Committee Hearing on Jacob Lew who was Joe Biden’s Israel Ambassador nominee.
If you missed it, they invaded the Capitol:
So Rashida Tlaib repeated a lie about the bombing and then a bunch of people… stormed the Capitol?
Isn’t that considered and insurrection these days? https://t.co/QxDjGNM8WW

It turns out that Tlaib was not the only Squad member who incited the “ceasefire mob” at the Capitol Building. Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) took to Twitter on Wednesday to express her “solidarity” for the insurrectionists, who she claimed were only trying to “save” lives without any evidence:

Ironically, Pressley posted her tweet just hours after posting another about how, in her opinion, Republican House Speaker nominee Jim Jordan – whom Democrats repeatedly called a terrorist in recent days – was “dead serious” about “inciting insurrectionists” and “destroying our democracy”.
“Jim Jordan may be a joke, but he’s dead serious when it comes to inciting insurrectionists or destroying our democratic system.”
Cori Bush, a fellow Squad member (D-Mo. Tlaib and Cori Bush (D-Mo.) both took a blame-the-victim approach to Israel, despite the atrocities Hamas committed against Israeli civilians, including the beheading of infants. They were also present at the rally featuring Tlaib where they stood shoulder-to-shoulder with the insurrectionists.
I came to Congress to save lives.
I am standing in strong solidarity with these courageous protesters and echo their call to not weaponize grief for mass destruction.

The fact that the people who want to “save life” are not willing to blame the terrorists for starting this war, and killing innocents, is a bit shocking. But now, conveniently, it’s in full swing and Israel has responded by defending itself and trying to eliminate any threat.
All that and more. These Useful Idiots do not deserve another term in Congress. It remains to be seen if voters will do the right thing in either the general or primary election next year and throw them out.
