The Democratic Party seems to be getting more and more divided by the day.
In response to the outrage over radical congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s comments over 9/11, congresswoman Rashida Tlaib didn’t attack Republicans but instead attacked Democratic leadership, specifically House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accusing her of using minorities in Congress as “tokens of diversity.”
According to Fox News Tlaib “claimed in a Twitter message Saturday that she and other minority members of the party have been used as tokens whenever the party wants to project an image of inclusiveness.”
Check out what the Daily Wire reported in relation to Tlaib’s comments:
She joined a number of Islamic activists on Twitter who were accusing Pelosi, who tweeted that 9/11 was “sacred ground,” of not doing enough to defend Omar against what they felt were unfair attacks over comments she made that “some people did something” on September 11.
Omar’s comments were, it seems, meant to allege that Muslims across the globe have been discriminated against and mistreated in the wake of the September 11 attacks — a point she was trying to use to justify her opposition to what she calls President Donald Trump’s “Muslim ban,” a travel restriction that prevents travelers from countries that actively sponsor and bankroll terrorist organizations from obtaining even temporary visas to visit the United States.
The ban itself has been altered several times. The final version, which bans residents of nine countries, seven of which are majority Muslim, has held up under legal scrutiny (so far).
Tlaib pointed out that several 2020 Democratic presidential candidates have called comments criticizing Omar “incitement to violence” — a legal exception to the First Amendment’s right to freedom of speech, and a punishable crime — but that Pelosi has chosen instead to ask Trump and others to simply tone down their rhetoric.
According to radical congresswoman Tlaib, Pelosi along with other Democratic leaders are actively racist.
“They put us in photos when they want to show our party is diverse,” Tlaib said on social media. “However, when we ask to be at the table, or speak up about issues that impact who we are, what we fight for & why we ran in the first place, we are ignored. To truly honor our diversity is to never silence us.”
Tlaib then retweeted Omar’s post where she said essentially the same thing accusing Pelosi of being racist.
“More and more we’re realizing that POC [people of color] are used as props by @TheDemocrats,” Tlaib’s retweeted missive read. “When we run, we’re told to wait our turn. When we speak about our struggles, we’re told we’re angry. When we ask them to stand up for us, they say we’re being divisive.”
Pelosi can’t even control her own party! It’s pretty entertaining to watch the Democratic party eat itself up along with the growing divide between somewhat moderate Democrats and far Left liberals like Tlaib, Omar and Ocasio-Cortez. The Left has become so obsessed with race that they can’t even get along with each other!
