In yet another example of how extreme that the Democratic party has become since it became openly socialist, they are not contemplating the arrest of their political foes.
With the secret proceedings over a CIA “whistleblower” being conducted by the House Intelligence Committee and the ongoing series of hearings that resemble show trials, the Dems have already shown that they are using Joseph Stalin’s playbook.
Now Rashida Tlaib wants to further liberalize the party with the harrowing possibility of the midnight knock and the throwing of adversaries into jail.
It just doesn’t get any more unAmerican than that but that is exactly what the freshman firebrand who is one of the members of The Squad is calling for and she let it slip during a recent town hall meeting.

Via The Washington Examiner, “‘No joke’: Rashida Tlaib says Democrats are ‘trying to figure out’ how to arrest White House officials”:
Rep. Rashida Tlaib told constituents that Democrats are working to figure out ways that they can arrest members of President Trump’s administration if they do not cooperate with subpoenas.
“This is the first time we’ve ever had a situation like this. So they’re trying to figure out, no joke, they’re trying to figure out, well, is it the D.C. police that goes and gets them? We don’t know. Where do we hold them?” the Michigan Democrat said at a “Congress, Coffee, and Conversation” event Tuesday in Detroit.
The freshman congresswoman then joked that she would tell congressional leaders that they could keep White House officials imprisoned in Detroit.
“We’ll take care of them,” she said.
While always having
communist socialist leanings, it was only after the media made a superstar out of a ditzy twenty-something bartender named Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that extremism became a badge of honor.
Rep. Tlaib along with fellow freshman Ilhan Omar are virulently anti-Semitic and yet they are not only not admonished and censured but along with AOC and the extremist Ayanna Pressley, The Squad has become arguably the most powerful subgroup in the entire U.S. Congress.
It isn’t exactly good optics to begin hauling Trump administration figures off but the Dems are counting on the archaic concept of inherent contempt to justify their police state tactics.
According to The Conservative Partnership Institute, inherent contempt is described as:
“Since 1935, Congress has relied on the executive and judicial branches when people refuse to comply with congressional subpoenas. This practice makes sense: if Congress cannot get the information it needs on its own authority, then it can rely on the authority of the other branches of government. However, there is another option. Instead of turning to another branch, Congress can legally imprison or fine individuals who refuse to comply.”
Left unchecked, this is where socialism always leads. To outright totalitarianism and if Democrats are ready to start rounding up and imprisoning Trump administration officials who defy their ridiculous subpoenas, could gulags be coming to America if they are able to regain total power over the government?
The unholy alliance between the Deep State and Democrats is about to become even more dangerous if Rep. Tlaib gets her way.
