Rashida Tlaib says she was ‘afraid’ of Americans after 9/11 and that fear pushed her into politics.
Rashida Tlaib: “I immediately called my brothers and told them to be very careful who you hang out with, telling my sisters, you know, just be real careful out there, and being really afraid of my fellow Americans.”
Okay, so radical Islamists fly planes into buildings, killing thousands of people, and she’s afraid of the Americans who don’t?
U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., once said her fear of Americans after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks pushed her to be more involved in politics and her community.
Tlaib, a Palestinian-American lawmaker who first drew national attention with a profane call for the impeachment of President Trump soon after she took office in January, made her comments in a clip filmed for Makers, a media company that tries to “accelerate the women’s movement through stories of real-life experiences that ignite passion and action.”
In the video, filmed months ago as part of the “Maker of the week” segment which is currently featured prominently on the outlet’s homepage, Tlaib said she was “afraid” of her fellow Americans after the terror attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people. More
She is blessed to live in one of the most tolerant and civilized countries on the face of the Earth, yet has the audacity to say that she began to fear and thereby demonize her fellow Americans after 9/11… and now somehow this woman is a member of Congress?

Maybe Rashida Tlaib should have taken that up with her fellow Muslims who gave us a real reason to fear and distrust Islam. Americans are good, generous, welcoming people, but we don’t take kindly to our people being slaughtered.
