Washington Post Defends Tlaib’s Insensitive Comment about Holocaust

Rep. Rashida Tlaib is the daughter of Palestinian immigrants, both from the are around the disputed West Bank.

Tlaib has made it known that she doesn’t like Israel or Jews.

Tlaib recently said that she is calmed by the Holocaust and then tired to make it sound like the Palestinian people were also victimized by the Holocaust.

Republicans instantly attacked Tlaib for her anti-Semitic comment and for her inaccuracy about the role of the Palestinian people.

The Washington Post, known for its fake news and anti-Trump postings, had the audacity to defend Tlaib and condemn Republicans for their comments.

Breitbart – Washington Post Defends Rashida Tlaib’s Holocaust Comments, Attacks Republicans – The Washington Post has addressed inflammatory comments by Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) about the Holocaust by focusing on the Republican response to her statements, rather than on Tlaib’s own remarks.

The Post‘s tactic reflects an increasingly common approach by mainstream media outlets when forced to cover the  latest extreme remark by a member of the Democratic caucus: paint the Republicans as the extremists by casting their reactions as overzealous.

Tlaib made the flagrantly false claim in a recent Skulduggery podcast (at 28:11 in the audio) that Palestinians had offered Jews a “safe haven” after the Holocaust.

In reality, the major Palestinian leadership figure of the time, Hajj Muhammad Amin al-Husseini, collaborated with Nazi Germany, and Palestinians violently opposed Jewish immigration — before, during, and after the Second World War.

Tlaib also made the awkward remark that “[t]here’s always kind of a calming feeling I tell folks when I think of the Holocaust,” meaning that she felt reassured about the “fact” [sic] that Palestinians had helped Jews (they did not)…

What prompted Tlaib to say what she did about how the Holocaust is calming for her was prompted by her desire to see the destruction of Israel and the creation of the Palestinian state.

After Republicans responded to Tlaib and pointed out her fallacy about the Holocaust victimizing the Palestinian people, Tlaib responded and repeated her historical errors.

Her radicalism has clouded her mind to the truth of history, which seems to be a common condition among many Palestinians.
