    Tlaib hits back at Bill Maher for comments on BDS, compares Israel to apartheid South Africa

    Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., suggested Saturday that viewers boycott comedian Bill Maher’s HBO talk show after he devoted a segment of Friday's program to bashing the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement, calling it a “bulls--- purity test.”

    "Maybe folks should boycott his show," said Tlaib, who went on to compare criticism of the BDS movement to the controversy surrounding boycotts of South Africa's apartheid regime in the 1970s and 1980s.

    What's funny is that President Trump has carefully maneuvered the Democrat party into defending these racist lunatics at a time when they're trying to sell the "Trump is a racist" narrative. Two anti-American, anti-Semitic Muslims are now the face of the Democrat party.

    Trump is basically "Bruce Wayne pretending to be a foppish retarded billionaire" tier genius.

    The MSM has been working overtime not noticing their anti-Semitism so that a large portion of the American public doesn't have any idea just what sort of people they are.

    For instance, virtually no MSM outlet mentions troubling little details such as that the group sponsoring the trip, Miftah, has proudly praised female suicide bombers and routinely pushes the medieval blood libel (the long disproven myth that Jews ritually sacrifice Christian children at Passover in order to obtain blood for unleavened bread). While they summarily refused to meet with any Israeli leaders (not just those from the government but even from the opposition) they definitely found time to meet with the pro-terrorist group.

    And you'll have to search long and hard to find a MSM source that'll mention that they listed their destination as "Palestine" not "Israel" -- a continuation of their belief that Israel has no right to exist.

    As the New York Post noted:

    Their itinerary itself was a blatant thumb in the eye to the Israeli government, starting with its description of the pair as a “US Congressional Delegation to Palestine”; neither Israel nor the US recognizes “Palestine.”


    Or that Prime Minister Netanyahu, who received a copy of their travel plans and scheduled activities noted that


    So they were going there planning to violate Israeli law by promoting actions that would harm the country. And folks are surprised that they were refused entry?

    And despite repeated claims in the MSM that this move is unprecedented (the left-wing magazine The Nation is calling it a "New Low"), the fact is that the Obama Administration banned a member of the Israeli Knesset (their parliament) from entering the U.S. in 2012 and in 2005 George W. Bush's Administration blocked Narendra Modi who is India's Prime Minister when he was Chief Minister of the state of Gujarat.


    Instead they are working overtime trying to portray them as an innocent victims being viciously picked on because they have opposed Trump (ABC's This Week is an excellent example) leading to insanity like this from Britain's The Independent:


    Which conveniently overlooks things like the JFK and RFK assassinations, the attempted assassination of Ronald Reagan and even more recently Steve Scalise both of who were critically shot. And how about Leo Ryan (who was assassinated after visiting Jim Jones' People's Temple in Guyana), George Moscone (shot and killed in his San Francisco office) and George Wallace (shot while campaigning for president and left paralyzed from the waist down). And that's just the ones in the U.S. that I can think of off the top of my head. Overseas folks like India's Indira Gandhi and Anwar El-Sadat come to mind and I guess we can also include Muammar Gaddafi and Saddam Hussein.

    I'm always still in trouble again

    As the New York Post accurately summed it up:

    Source: Israel’s ban of Tlaib, Omar was a tough call — but entirely justifiable



    ...

    And get this: After Bibi’s decision, Tlaib lodged a humanitarian appeal, begging to visit her 90-year-old grandmother in the West Bank. “This could be my last opportunity to see her,” pleaded Tlaib. If allowed in, she agreed “to respect any restrictions” and not “promote boycotts against Israel.”

    Yet when Israel called her bluff and OK’d her trip under those terms, she declined. Is there any better proof that her trip was meant as a political stunt?
