On Sunday morning, Rep. Rashida Tlaib learned that Bill Maher had ripped the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement as “a bullshit purity test by people who want to appear woke, but slept through history class.”
Tlaib is a major supporter of the movement and who is of Palestinian descent responded to Maher by tweeting, “Maybe folks should boycott his show. I am tired of folks discrediting a form of speech that is centered on equality and freedom. This is exactly how they tried to discredit & stop the boycott to stand up against the apartheid in South Africa. It didn’t work then and it won’t now.”

Does she really want to get into a back and forth with a seasoned comedian? Grab your popcorn and watch this infighting play out because it’s only getting better each day.
It seems the media won’t report that: “Israel passed a law in 2017 that instructs the Israeli Interior Minister to ban foreign nationals who publicly support a movement such as BDS.”
Democrats do not represent America, and if you want to go further than that, Talib, Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley and their little revolution extend the worst this nation has given in years. They seem to care less about this country, almost wanting it to become a 3rd or 4th world country by design. They should have been removed already as a security threat to our Democracy.
If you live in America, then be an American. Don’t try to slip in here as a foreigner trying to change America into a third world country. I agree with barring Tlaib and Omar from Israel, especially if it’s against their law.
It is the right of a country to keep its values and I only hope that America will do the same thing and stand for American values, period.
Don’t get me wrong, all should be welcome to come and adopt American values (the positive values that is) and stop trying to bring the negative values that made their country of birth a third world place that they needed to leave.
