The left is quick to point fingers and attack anyone who says anything that they find offensive. However, the second one of theirs does the same thing it is either ignored or the person is praised. Racial slurs are racial slurs. It is wrong. its is not something that should be tolerated and it making such statements is not becoming of someone who holds politcial office.
According to FOXNews Less than a week after issuing a profanity-infused call to impeach President Trump on her first day in office, Michigan Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib is under fire from Republican politicians and commentators for openly posting what they call an anti-Semitic dog whistle on Twitter.
Top Republicans in the Senate are also alleging that Democratic leaders are hoping to hide the fact that Tlaib is just one of many new Democratic politicians in Congress who harbor deeply anti-Israel views.
Tlaib, responding to a post by Vermont Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders on Monday, suggested that Senate Republicans were more loyal to Israel than the U.S., amid a report that GOP leaders were planning to introduce a bill that would punish companies that participate in the so-called “Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions” (BDS) global movement against Israel. BDS proponents seek to pressure Israel through economic and other means — often, until Israel ceases to exist in its current form.
“They forgot what country they represent,” Tlaib, a Palestinian-American who made history last week by becoming one of the first two Muslim women to ever serve in Congress, wrote.
“This is the U.S. where boycotting is a right & part of our historical fight for freedom & equality. Maybe a refresher on our U.S. Constitution is in order, then get back to opening up our government instead of taking our rights away,” she added.
Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio, one of the Republican senators to introduce the anti-BDS bill, immediately called Tlaib’s post an “anti-Semitic line” that perpetuates a longstanding “dual loyalty” conspiracy that holds that Israel effectively controls Washington politicians.
The accusation that Jewish politicians could be vulnerable to having “dual loyalties” has been made for centuries in various contexts, and has been seen widely as a religious-based attack intent on undermining their leadership.
The posts by Sanders and Tlaib…
Despite the backlash shes not sorry for her comments.
I will always speak truth to power. #unapologeticallyMe

This doesn’t seem to be her first incident though. Her first day in office she went on a profanity laced tirade claiming, “We are going to impeach the motherfucker.” Again not the acceptable behavior of anyone who holds political office.

While she did swear in on a quran she ultimately decided not to use Thomas Jeffersons and her comment pretty much tells you what her allegiance lies…
“Why uplift someone else?” she said. “It’s starting a new era in social justice. … It just occurred to me: Why am I not using my own?”
When will enough be enough? When will this type of behavior once again be deemed unacceptable by those holding higher office?
