On March 8th I announced that persistent calls for walk backs or apologies from Democrat Mulsim members of Congress (who appear antisemitic) would be dismissed as Islamophobia.” Today Rashida Tlaib observed that “Islamophobia is a problem on both sides of the aisle in Congress.”
The remarks from the Michigan congresswoman who, along with Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, is one of only two Muslim women in Congress, came during a discussion about criticism directed at Omar over accusations of anti-Semitism regarding her controversial comments about Israel, including her assertions of its influence on U.S. foreign policy.
“Both sides of the aisle” sounds a lot like the Democrat House antisemitism declaration devolving into a generic statement against hate in general. A ridiculous exercise by a party that hates anyone that won’t bend the knee to their systematic march toward tyranny.

Something that has Ilhan Omar on a list of likely candidates for a lawsuit by Covington kid Nick Sandmann’s lawyers.
