Rashida Tlaib won’t condemn ‘Death to America’ chants in her district, snaps at reporter

U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) snapped at a Fox News reporter who asked her about an ugly display of anti-Americanism on the last day of the Ramadan holiday that took place in the “Squad” member’s congressional district.

Last Friday in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn which is represented by the antisemitic firebrand, speakers denounced the United States over Israel’s war on the Hamas terrorist organization in Gaza with incendiary rhetoric and chants of “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” ringing out.

On Wednesday night, Fox Business reporter Hillary Vaughn caught up with Tlaib in the Capitol to seek her comment on the Islamist radicalism in her district which has been dubbed “America’s Jihad Capital” for obvious reasons.

“I don’t talk to Fox News,” Tlaib snapped at Vaughn who was just trying to do her job.

“At a rally in your district, people were chanting ‘Death to America,’ do you condemn…,” she asked, only to be cut off by the Jew-hating Democrat.

“I do not talk to Fox News,” the congresswoman emphasized as she scampered toward the safety of the elevator.

“But do you condemn chants of ‘death to America?’” Vaughn persisted.

“I don’t talk to people that use racist tropes,” Tlaib shot back, whipping out the trusty race card.

“Why can’t you just say whether or not you condemn people that say death to Amer…,” the relentless reporter Vaughn asked. “Why are you afraid to talk to Fox?”

“Fox News is not…listen, using racist tropes towards my community is what Fox News is about, and I don’t talk to Fox News,” the “Squad” member said.

“Is ‘death to America’ racist? Is chanting ‘death to America’ racist?” Vaughn asked again.

“I’m talking about your guys’ racist tropes. You know, you guys know exactly what you do and I know you ‘Islamaphobic,’ but you guys gotta deal with it on your own selves, you’re not gonna use me,” the left-wing lawmaker responded, as the elevator door hissed shut, sparing her from having to answer the question.

Video footage was posted to X showing the April 5 International Al-Quds Day rally where one of the speakers praised Iran’s evil Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini and raged against America.

“It’s not just Genocide Joe that has to go,” he proclaimed, referring to President Joe Biden. “It is the entire system that has to go. Any system that would allow such atrocities and such devilry to happen and would support it – such a system does not deserve to exist on God’s Earth.”

“And so when these fools ask us if Israel has the right to exist…the chant ‘death to Israel’ has become the most logical chant shouted across the world today,” Tarek Bazzi said as members of the crowd chanted “Death to Israel!” in the video from Tlaib’s home turf.

The easy answer to the question is that Tlaib won’t condemn the anti-American chants because she very likely agrees with them.
