Calming Down


Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib’s recent comments about the Holocaust have a whole lot of people up in arms. The truth is that she is more about Palestine than anything else, but oddly enough many Muslims have accused her of “not being Muslim enough.”

In any case, her comments were weird and oddly phrased, and yes, they were offensive. Given the opportunity to clarify what she meant, she simply repeated them again and then proclaimed that anybody who disagrees with her is a 4th grad racist.

Which, in my mind, is the bigger offense. The idea that a member of Congress doesn’t understand that calling people who disagree with you names is offensive makes me sad. And worried about what happens next…
