Censure Without Consequences for Rashida Tlaib Is Like a Tiny Speed Bump On Her Antisemitic Over the Top Rhetoric Highway


In Congress bipartisanship is an endangered species trait
Americans hoping to see politicians crossing the aisle are in for a long wait
All too often the votes in the House are on straight party lines
Desperate to find common ground with one or two crossers bi-partisanship is defined
In a rare moment of putting nation ahead of party 22 Blues on Tlaib’s antisemitism were through
Joined with 212 Reds to censure Tlaib for the false narratives on Israel she chose to spew
Kudos to the 4 Reds who would not follow their leaders’ desires
Voted with the Blues against censure and thought the it was right to push for a ceasefire
If we thought that censure might curb Tlaib’s venom against Israel we were wrong
With her mantra of “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free” as Israel there does not belong
Censure of her is like water rolling off a ducks back
Over the top rhetoric that Netanyahu is a “genocidal maniac”
Blasting her fellow Blues who have met with this “war criminal” with blood on his hands
Ad hominem attacks that increase the burden of bringing peace to this land
Unlike Ilham Omar who was censured and removed from her seat on the Committee on Foreign Affairs
Tlaib’s committee seats were retained so from her rhetorical venom  we will not be spared
