One Day After Congress Fails to Censure Rashida Tlaib She Calls for the Elimination of Israel on Twitter

Rashida Tlaib lies about the bombing of a Gaza hospital by Jews at an anti-Israel rally in Washington DC before participants stormed the US Capitol.

The House of Representatives voted against a resolution to censure Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI). The resolution, which accused Tlaib of being “the most pro-terrorist, pro-Hamas, anti-Israel, and antisemitic member of Congress,” failed to pass with a vote of 222-186. Notably, twenty-two Republicans sided with the Democrats to table the resolution, preventing further debate on the matter.

The list of Republicans who voted against the censure includes:

  1. Rep. Tim Walberg (R-MI)
  2. Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY)
  3. Rep. Kelly Armstrong (R-ND)
  4. Rep. Max Miller (R-OH)
  5. Rep. John Duarte (R-CA)
  6. Rep. John Moolenaar (R-MI)
  7. Rep. Bill Huizenga (R-MI)
  8. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA)
  9. Rep. Victoria Spartz (R-IN)
  10. Rep. Dusty Johnson (R-SD)
  11. Rep. Harriet Hageman (R-WY)
  12. Rep. Morgan Griffith (R-VA)
  13. Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL)
  14. Rep. Michael Turner (R-OH)
  15. Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO)
  16. Rep. Glenn Grothman (R-WI)
  17. Rep. Tom McClintock (R-CA)
  18. Rep. Austin Scott (R-GA)
  19. Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX)
  20. Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-IA)
  21. Rep. Patricia McCormick (R-NJ)
  22. Rep. Doug LaMalfa (R-CA)

Here are the 12 Republicans who did not vote:

  1. Rep. John Curtis (R-UT)
  2. Rep. Andrew Garbarino (R-NY)
  3. Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA)
  4. Rep. Dave Joyce (R-OH)
  5. Rep. Debbie Lesko (R-AZ)
  6. Rep. Frank Lucas (R-OK)
  7. Rep. Troy Nehls (R-TX)
  8. Rep. Dan Newhouse (R-WA)
  9. Rep. Jay Obernolte (R-CA)
  10. Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX)
  11. Rep. Bryan Steil (R-WI)
  12. Rep. Beth Van Duyne (R-TX)

Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) was among those who voted to table the motion. In a statement released on Thursday, Roy explained his decision, stating, “Rep. Rashida Tlaib has repeatedly made outrageous remarks toward Israel and the Jewish people. Her conduct is unbecoming of a member of Congress and certainly worthy of condemnation – if not censure.” He further elaborated on his concerns about the resolution’s language, particularly its use of the term ‘insurrection.’

“However, tonight’s feckless resolution to censure Tlaib was deeply flawed and made legally and factually unverified claims, including the claim of leading an ‘insurrection’.”

On Thursday, after surviving her censure vote, Rashida Tlaib called for genocide of the Israeli Jews on Twitter.

What does “from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free” stand for?

The slogan is typically treated to mean the extermination of Jews and the elimination of the Jewish state.

A Labor Party member was suspended from the party for using the phrase in October.

The Examiner reported:

The phrase has been treated as comparable to hate speech in recent weeks in some parts of Europe — in the United Kingdom, a minister of Parliament was suspended from the Labour Party when he used a version of the phrase in a speech. U.K. Home Secretary Suella Braverman said attempts to paint the phrase as anything other than a demand for the destruction of Israel are “disingenuous.”
