Democrat Rashida Tlaib Refuses to Condemn ‘Death to America’ Chants in Her District

Radical anti-Semitic Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) has declared that people asking her to condemn “death to America” chants are using “racist tropes.”

Tlaib made the comments on Thursday while refusing to condemn recent chants of  “death to America” and “death to Israel” from protesters in her district.

The protests in Michigan have caused outrage as one speaker smeared America as one of the “rottenest countries” in the world.

Protesters chanted “death to America” in agreement followed by “death to Israel.”

A Fox News reporter asked Tlaib whether she would condemn the anti-America and anti-Israel chants at a rally last Friday in Dearborn, Michigan.

Instead, the congresswoman accused Fox News of using “racist tropes” and claimed the question was “Islamophobic.”

“I don’t talk to Fox News,” Tlainb responded,

“I don’t talk to people who use racist tropes.”

“Why are you afraid to talk to Fox?” the reporter asked Tlaib.

“Using racist tropes toward my community is what Fox News is about, and I don’t talk to Fox News.”

“You guys know exactly what you do,” she added.

“I know you are Islamophobic.”

WATCH:

Tlaib’s remarks came after she has repeatedly defended fellow anti-Semitic “Squad” member Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

She has spoken in support of Omar during multiple anti-Semitic controversies, including when she said political support for the Jewish state is “all about the Benjamins.”

Omar’s anti-Semitic rhetoric led to the House voting to remove her from the Foreign Affairs Committee.

In a speech in February 2023, ahead of the vote to remove Omar, Tlaib said:

“The GOP is now doing what it’s best at—weaponizing hate against a black, beautiful, Muslim woman.”

Tlaib has also come under fire for publishing an article in 2006 on The Final Call, a blog founded and run by Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

Farrakhan “has a long history of anti-Semitic, misogynistic, and homophobic tirades,” according to Business Insider.

In November, the Michigan Democrat spoke at an event hosted by Muslim groups known for being anti-Semitic and supporting Hamas.

The executive director at one of the groups, American Muslims for Palestine, called Jewish people “despicable” and praised Hamas terrorists as “martyrs.”

Tlaib also employed at least six “terror-linked activists who all served as cohosts for fundraisers for her 2018 congressional campaign,” according to a watchdog report.

On Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre denounced the chants in Tlaib’s district.

Dearborn’s Democrat Mayor Abdullah Hammoud also criticized the chants as “unacceptable and contrary to the heart of this city.”

“We reject all inflammatory and violent statements made at the gathering,” Hammoud added.
