Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), one of the first Muslim women to ever be elected to Congress, came under fire even from some within her own party when she promised to “impeach the mother f**ker” on the evening of her swearing-in.
But that didn’t stop Tlaib from signing a pledge this week to impeach President Donald Trump.
The other member of Congress to jump ahead of the line to sign the grassroots petition? Why, none other than her fellow Muslim congresswoman (and controversy lightning rod) Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN). How charming!
The pledge was organized by a liberal group calling themselves “By the People,” who say they “came together because we saw that millions of Americans want the Trump Administration removed from office.” Er, so? Millions of people wanted to see that happen on the day of Trump’s inauguration. Those people are called Hillary Clinton supporters, and their butthurt over losing the election does not say anything about the legitimacy of an impeachment hearing.
Not that we have any particular feeling one way or the other about a bunch of liberals getting together to demand the impeachment of a president they don’t like. After all, we’re pretty sure we saw one or two “Impeach Obama” petitions floating around from 2009-2016. If only…
But we digress.
The problem here isn’t that a liberal group wants to fulfill their fantasies of impeaching Trump, the problem is that we now have these two anti-American congresswomen actually pledging to make that dream come true. Um, shouldn’t these idiots wait to see some evidence? Or is that not how things are done in the Palestinian community? Is that not what they taught Omar to do in Somalia? Is that not in accordance with Sharia Law? No, we’re really asking.
If anyone should be impeached – or expelled from office, as it were – it should be Tlaib and Omar, who have been tainted with anti-Semitic controversies since the day they were sworn into office. Their Islamic sympathies have blinded them with bigotry, making them not just a threat to the Jewish community but a threat to national security. Do you really feel safe knowing that these two women of unclear allegiances have a say in the direction of our nation’s laws? That they might soon have access to national security secrets? If so, you have more faith in them than we do.
