Rep. Tlaib: Democrats Use As Diversity Props, But Otherwise Ignore Us


Dem Rep. Rashida Tlaib claims she and other left-leaning Democrats are “ignored’ by the party’s leadership who use them as diversity props.

“They put us in photos when they want to show our party is diverse. However, when we ask to be at the table, or speak up about issues that impact who we are, what we fight for & why we ran in the first place, we are ignored. To truly honor our diversity is to never silence us.”

So to truly honor your diversity is to never silence you, even when you say something that is so egregiously wrong that even your own party is wincing?

Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib claims she and other progressive Democrats are “ignored’ by the party’s leadership who use them as diversity props in photo ops. She tweeted Saturday that the party should “never silence us.”

Tlaib said that “[The Party Leadership] put us in photos when they want to show our party is diverse. However, when we ask to be at the table, or speak up about issues that impact who we are, what we fight for & why we ran in the first place, we are ignored. To truly honor our diversity is to never silence us.”

Tlaib was responding to a tweet that suggested the “attacks on @IlhanMN and subsequent lack of support from Democratic leadership continues to prove that this system was never meant for us.” More

Democrats have been using special snowflake groups as props for decades… blacks, gays, women, now illegals and Muslims. Someone should tell Rep. Rashida Tlaib there’s nothing new about it.

Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib are true to their faith and are sowing the seeds of disaccord to divide America all while promoting their cause. They are a detriment to their own party.
