U.S. Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib is back in the news cycle first because she’s been tapped to speak on an upcoming panel seeking to combat antisemitism and second because of a comment she made over the weekend about Joe Biden’s expected pick for Secretary of State.
The upcoming event is hosted by Leftist groups including Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP), which claims “antisemitism is used to manufacture division and fear,” as The Jerusalem Post’s Seth J. Frantzman pointed out in a recent article.
The event quickly drew backlash with many Twitter users considering the event as satire.
Activist and writer Hen Mazzig said he “fixed” the advertisement of the event showing Tlaib and other panelists, hanging the title to “ENABLING ANTISEMITISM, JEWS DON’T DESERVE JUSTICE: A PANEL DISCUSSION.”
Rep. Tlaib, who supports the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement that seeks to cut ties with Israeli entities, has a dark past with hatred against the Jewish people. For instance, she’s spread antisemitic “blood libels.”
On Sunday, just weeks before she’s to speak against antisemitism, Tlaib used her Twitter profile, which has over 1 million followers, to cast doubt over Biden’s reported choice for Secretary of State, Tony Blinken, who is Jewish. “So long as he doesn’t suppress my First Amendment right to speak out against Netanyahu’s racist and inhumane policies,” she said. “The Palestinian people deserve equality and justice.”
Jewish Journal reporter Aaron Bandler wrote of Tlaib’s tweet, “She doesn’t like the fact that he’s Jewish,” adding “Also the fact that her first concern about a new SOS is being able to demonize Israel should tell you all you need to know about her.”
Newsmax reporter Logan Ratick wrote in response to Tlaib, “Her first reaction to the possibility of a Jewish man being appointed to a cabinet position is a remark about Israel. What an unhinged anti-Semite. Tells you everything you need to know about her.”

Texas has raised over $55 million from private donations to secure border, build a wall
As of September 12, the state of Texas has raised a little over $55 million in private donations, to secure the southern border and build a wall. “While securing the border is the federal government’s responsibility, Texas will not sit idly by as this crisis grows. Texas is responding with the most robust and comprehensive border plan the nation has ever seen,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said in a statement.
“The State of Texas is working collaboratively with communities impacted by the border crisis to arrest and detain individuals coming into Texas illegally,” Abbott’s statement reads. “Our efforts will only be effective if we work together to secure the border, make criminal arrests, protect landowners, rid our communities of dangerous drugs, and provide Texans with the support they need and deserve.”
In addition to finding money for a border wall, Abbott has signed legislation which designated Mexican drug cartels as domestic terrorists, and has called on President Joe Biden to do the same.
“Fentanyl is a clandestine killer, and Texans are falling victim to the Mexican cartels that are producing it,” said Governor Abbott in a statement. “Cartels are terrorists, and it’s time we treated them that way. In fact, more Americans died from fentanyl poisoning in the past year than all terrorist attacks across the globe in the past 100 years. In order to save our country, particularly our next generation, we must do more to get fentanyl off our streets.”
“As of now, Biden has not responded to Abbott’s request to designate Mexican cartels as terrorist organizations” reports Just The News.
