Controversial Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich, doubled down on her polarizing remarks about having a “calming feeling” whenever she thinks of the Holocaust, and that Palestinians created a “safe haven for Jews” after the Holocaust during her recent appearance on “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” suggesting that here words were taken out of context and she should be speaking to “racist idiots” at a fourth-grade level.

Her remarks to Meyers followed comments which drew the ire of her critic she made during a Yahoo News podcast interview, where she said that the WWII genocide of six million Jews gave her a “calming feeling” as well as offering revisionist history for claiming that Palestinians welcomed Jews to the Middle East when Palestinian leader Grand Mufti Haj Amin el Husseini was actually an ally of Adolph Hitler and met with the dictator in 1941.

Tlaib tried to justify her heinous remarks to “Late Night” host Seth Meyers by saying that her grandmother lives in the West Bank, which she referred to as “the occupied territories of Palestine” and how many of her ancestors “died” or “gave up their livelihood” to provide that safe haven for Jews, which she wanted to “recognize and honor.”

“I want all of us to feel safe. All of us deserve human dignity, no matter our backgrounds, no matter our ethnicity, no matter even our political opinions, we all deserve that kind of equality and justice. And, you know, for me, I wanted to uplift that and bring that to light and it was unfortunate,” Tlaib explained. “You know, I got a text from a friend who’s like, ‘Hey, next time, you know, really clarify. Maybe talk like a fourth grader because maybe the racist idiots would understand you better.'”

How hard is it to understand what kind of vile human being can have any kind of “calming thoughts” about the horrific death of six million Jews?

In regard to Tlaib’s words, President Trump tweeted, “Democrat Rep. Tlaib is being slammed for her horrible and highly insensitive statement on the Holocaust. She obviously has tremendous hatred of Israel and the Jewish people. Can you imagine what would happen if I ever said what she said, and says?”

The Republican Jewish Coalition said, “The only reason to ever take a ‘calming feeling’ from reflections on the Holocaust is out of hatred for the Jewish people.”

 “Complex History”

Trying to give her an undeserved benefit of the doubt, Seth Meyers responded by saying it “wouldn’t hurt” if everyone spoke on a “fourth-grade level” about the complex history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. He also told Tlaib that there’s a “bad-faith argument” regarding the notion that she was “calmed” by the Holocaust, but mentioned that there was a “good-faith argument” that her history was “not in alignment with everyone else.”

Tlaib was widely condemned by GOP lawmakers as well as President Trump, who accused her of “tremendous hatred,” and was widely defended by Democratic lawmakers including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif, who called the “smear” attempt “outrageous.”

Even if you want to debate what she was referring to in “feeling calmed,” for the record, she is totally wrong about the picture she is painting of post-World War Two Palestine. Representative Tlaib said that Jews were given “safe haven” in British Mandate Palestine after the Holocaust. This is simply not true. Arabs who lived in British Mandate Palestine did not welcome Jews who fled to their historic homeland before, during and after the Holocaust. In fact, the local Arab leadership worked to bar the entry of Jews to Mandate-era Palestine.

  1. No, sister, we racist idiots understand you perfectly. You are a disgrace, and I look forward to see your exit from Congress next year. You are in Fantasyland, and your revisionist history will not fly.

  2. This Muslima is from Jordanian heritage, not Palestinian which does not exist. No Muslims provided any safe haven for Jews returning to Israel, but in fact tried in every way to stop them, kill them, even completely destroy them.

    Maybe if she says the lie enough, repeats it enough, she will get some leftist snowflakes to believe her?

  3. Amin Al-Husseini, the Arab Nazi, ally of Hitler, so-called Arab Fuhrer, most rabid advocate of the “final solution”, uncle of Yasir Arafat, ardent lifelong anti-Semite, so-called Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, and early voice of radicalized Islam, should have been hung alongside his fellow co-conspirators at Nuremberg, that’s where this evil hatred comes from. It’s a shame and disgrace that his followers can be elected to any public office in the United States. The Romans tried to erase Israel from history, renaming it Palestine. Maps that followed this abomination labeled the area Palestine. The name was later applied by the British and others. Tyrants and the uninformed can call it what they will, but the fact is that God gave the land to the nation of Israel as an eternal covenant, and Jerusalem is the eternal capital of God’s chosen people Israel.

  4. NEVERTHELESS….. HOW DID SHE ESCAPE THE STUDY OF WORLD HISTORY WHILE HERE IN AMERICA?
    SHE SHOULD BE TAKEN OFF OF COMMITTEES AND VOTED OUT OR REMOVED FROM HER POSITION ASAP.
    SHE IS NOT 100% ASSIMILATED INTO AMERICA.
    WHY WOULD ANYONE VOTE FOR HER????
    MUSLIMS MUST NOT REPRESENT OUR NATION AS OUR GODS ARE DIFFERENT.

  5. She IS the “racist idiot at a fourth grade level.” Most fourth graders are not racists and don’t need to be indoctrinated by this person. And yes, I’m being nice describing her. She deserves worse IMHO.

  6. Muslims conspired with the Nazis to kill as many in the Middle East as possible and Muslims are continuing to kill as many as possible today. She is a total liar and a total Muslim.

  7. Thank you with all my heart, I wished they taught this History in school, Tlaib is a disgrace to this country as they are who voted her in to Congress hopefully for 1 (one) term only,

  8. Rashida (whose ) first name correlates to “freedom fighter” must have been born with her agenda. In that agenda, there’s always accommodation for hate and vitriol. She wouldn’t be the same lovely person she is not otherwise. She didn’t sneak into the House, she was elected by her kind of people and sympathizers, so she took her place in the House chamber.. She has was consistently hateful at the mention of Hebrews (who were the original people of what became named “Palestine”, thanks to British Commonwealth colonial policy “back in the day.” Before that, it was Judea as named by its people, Hebrews (otherwise known as Jews), and that region knew military occupiers Persia, Greece, and Rome, and finally the British Empire. The British didn’t mind the Jews who looked forward to building a nation, because they could manipulate the nomads (Arabs) via their tribal chieftains who were amply rewarded in order to continue their reigns over their people. Orders/pressures came from 10 Downing St.,London, England, until that operation of control was worn out, and the Arabs became restive. In the interim, the Jews were restoring their ancient holy land, protecting religious centers for Christian denominations and their own…the Arabs had no tolerance except for Islam. From the earliest day to present, the place which became Israel grew and prospered, the Arabs possibly could have done the same, but failed, preferably to foster the deep-seeded hate which they would not give up, ergo this small slice of land continues to exist despite the vendetta the Arab Muslims cannot exchange for peace without what they seek…total conquest.
