House Republican leaders called on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to "take action" against Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., Sunday after Tlaib said that thinking about the Holocaust gave her "kind of a calming feeling" in part because in its aftermath, the Palestinians helped create "a safe haven for Jews."

Tlaib, the first Palestinian-American woman to be elected to Congress, made the comments while discussing the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians during an appearance on the Yahoo News podcast "Skullduggery."

"There’s always kind of a calming feeling, I tell folks, when I think of the Holocaust, and the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the fact that it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways, have been wiped out, and some people's passports," Tlaib said on the podcast's most recent episode, published Friday. "And, just all of it was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews, post-the Holocaust, post-the tragedy and the horrific persecution of Jews across the world at that time. And, I love the fact that it was my ancestors that provided that, right, in many ways, but they did it in a way that took their human dignity away and it was forced on them."

Jesus.

How is this person not arrested already for hate speech?

The left is sickening at this point, they don't even try to hide their hate anymore.

Oh I don't know...maybe something like this, "There’s always kind of a calming feeling, I tell folks, when I think of the Holocaust "
That's not anti-semitic. Death - in the retrospective sense - often conveys a calming feeling. It's why I frequent cemeteries when walking. It's why funeral homes play slow, somber music*. It's not anti-semitic to suggest that the Holocaust evokes silent moments of reflection.





* New Orleans is a notable exception.
