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.”

Pro-Defund the Police Gubernatorial Candidate has NYPD Detail, Lives on Military Base for ‘Affordability’

Jumaane Williams is ‘hypocritical’ for living on a secure military base, critics say

Hypocrisy is no stranger to Democrats, but New York gubernatorial candidate Jumaane Williams is sparking outrage over his. Williams, an outspoken advocate of defunding the police, is relying on…the police…to protect him as he runs for governor.

Williams not only travels with a detail of New York City’s NYPD officers, but he also lives on a military base. The military base also provides 24/7 security. Williams, a self-proclaimed racial justice advocate, was elected as the New York City public advocate in 2019 after serving on the NYC Council.

Williams lives on the Fort Hamilton U.S. Army Garrison in Brooklyn, where anyone requesting entry must submit a background check and go through security checkpoints. NYPD security detail travels with him each day, provided to him because of his position for the city.

Williams proudly describes himself as a Democratic Socialist, and his campaign website touts a vow to “bring transformational change to Albany.” When New York City agreed to cut the NYPD budget by $1 billion as a result of the defund the police movement, Williams said the cut was an insufficient amount.

To add insult to injury, Williams lives on the military base simply for its “affordability.” A representative for Williams told the New York Post “when he needed a new home for his family in 2019, they chose a publicly available unit in Fort Hamilton not because of its position on a base but because it offered the best unit for his family’s price point and criteria.”

An area official with knowledge of the base’s housing process told the Post “these aren’t apartments listed on Zillow. It’s essentially a gated community with stunning waterfront views protected by tanks and soldiers with M16s.”

Not only are our tax dollars, but also our police and military forces helping to protect and house a man who is actively working to undo it all with his liberal policies.
