The decade's most triggering comedy
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) refused to apologize for using genocidal language calling for the extermination of the state of Israel when confronted by a reporter this week about the matter.
Tlaib has promoted Hamas terrorist propaganda in the weeks following their unprecedented attack against Israel where they murdered 1,200 Israelis, wounded 5,300, and kidnapped 240.
In a video Tlaib shared on her X account, she showed protesters in her state as they chanted, “From the river to the sea” — meaning from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea — which would require the total destruction of Israel as a Jewish State.
Tlaib was subsequently censured by the U.S. House of Representatives for her blatant anti-Semitism.
“Congresswoman, do you regret using the phrase ‘from the river to the sea?’ It’s used by terrorists to call for the genocide of Jewish people, do you regret using it?” Fox Business reporter Hillary Vaughn asked Tlaib as she left her office this week.
Tlaib, who was being escorted by a police officer, held a phone up to her face and never said a word during the 30+ seconds she was on camera.
“The White House says that phrase can be anti-Semitic, are you anti-Semitic, congresswoman?” Vaughn continued. “Are you anti-Semitic, congresswoman Tlaib?”
“Are you anti-Semitic, congresswoman Tlaib?” the reporter pressed. “Are you anti-Semitic, congresswoman Tlaib? Are you anti-Semitic, congresswoman Tlaib?”
Tlaib refused to answer the question or apologize for calling for the extermination of the state of Israel.
WATCH: @hillary__vaughn: "Do you regret using the phrase 'from the river of the sea'? It's used by terrorists to call for the genocide of the Jewish people."
