Muslim Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib has vowed to hang an altered American flag outside of her office in Washington, D.C., and people are not happy about it.
The Michigan Democrat — who is one of the four obnoxious members of the Democratic “Squad” — apparently thinks there aren’t just 50 states in the union.
During a hearing Thursday before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Democrats held another pointless charade to “evaluate” whether the District of Columbia (D.C.) should become the 51st of the United States.
Tlaib told D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser that she wanted a flag with 51 stars to display outside her office to show her support for upending the Constitution.
“I would love one,” Tlaib said. “I would love to hang it outside of my office.”
The D.C. statehood bill has more than 200 co-sponsors and the support of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer.
And, unsurprising, no Republicans in Congress have support the legislation because they do not think D.C. — which has less than 700,000 citizens — should become the 51st state.
Tlaib has been infuriating many people a lot since becoming a member of Congress in January.
Back in June, Tlaib went all in on slavery reparations and wants “direct payments” right now.
While speaking with the media, Tlaib made it clear that she wants direct cash payments to her constituents for slavery reparations as soon as possible.
Tlaib stunned many before that after she claimed thinking about the holocaust gives her a “calming feeling.”
Tlaib said the Holocaust — where millions of innocent people were beaten, tortured, and murdered — gives her a “calming feeling” because her Palestinian ancestors provided a “safe haven” for Jewish victims of the tragedy.
Prior to that, the Michigan lawmaker said she feels “more Palestinian in Congress” than American.
Earlier this year, Tlaib argued that anyone who supports having a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border also supports white supremacy.
“The ones that stay silent and the ones that support the Muslim ban. Not only once, but twice, three times did we in this nation say to the world and to everyone in this country that Muslims don’t belong here,” Tlaib said.
Hours after Democrats took control of the U.S. House of Representatives in November 2018, Tlaib launched into a profanity-laced diatribe against President Donald Trump and voted “impeach the motherf**ker.”
