- Freshman Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib once wrote a column for the Final Call in 2006
- Final Call is the official communications newspaper of the Nation of Islam
- Louis Farrakhan is well known for his anti-Semite views describing Jews as “satanic” and praised Hitler as a “very great man.”
- Tlaib has already faced scrutiny using profanity against President Trump during a swearing-in ceremony
Tlaib is a freshman representative who met criticism on both sides because of her profanity in front of her child-directed at President Trump, not even 24 hours after being sworn in. She has also been blasted for appearing with radical anti-Israel activists during a swearing-in ceremony who had previously praised Palestinian and Hezbollah terrorists that push the agenda that Israel should not exist.
Now, we’re learning that Tlaib wrote a column for Louis Farrakhan’s Final Call, the official publication of the National of Islam. Farrakhan has been cited many times as an individual that spouts anti-semitic rhetoric against the Jews as well as White America.
Oh, the irony. Dems claim Trump is anti-semitic without any proof, but then ignore one of their own who is openly anti-semitic! Tlaib’s article was written in 2006.
“Lost in the often-vitriolic national quarrel over immigration reform is any examination of proposed measures that would result in excessive punishment, such as detention and deportation, for the most minor offenses,” Tlaib wrote in a 2006 post in the Final Call. “Concern for ‘national security’ has introduced unprecedented insecurity to living in the United States as a legal permanent resident.”
The column, which takes an issue with deportations for minor offenses, remains to be accessible online and was first pointed out by blogger Jeryl Bier on social media.
A spokesperson for Tlaib told Business Insider that the article was from 2006 and “was not an endorsement of Farrakhan or anyone for that matter,” adding that the congresswoman “has not had any direct contact with Farrakhan and condemns his anti-Semitic and anti-LGBTQ views.”

I think we are witnessing a very weird pattern here. Tlaib, along with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar are extreme radical women that are pushing the limits on what they can and can not get away with, within the Democratic body of Congress.
Not sure why any Jewish person would ever vote Democrat, their entire freshman class seems to be full speed ahead anti-semitism.
Democrats have been pushing for more women in Congress, but they seem as if they do not care about the quality of woman. I would think you would want American patriots who care about this safety of the country, not radicals that want to destroy it from within.
I would have real reservations about such a person getting access to military and economic secrets. I am not the only one that believes a Muslim cannot be loyal to the USA, because “sharia law” trumps (pardon the pun) everything. I would not want such a person serving on the Armed Services Committee, would you?
