South Florida official claims Rashida Tlaib might ‘blow up’ Capitol HillA local official in South Florida accused Michigan Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib of being an anti-Semite who could try to "become a martyr and blow up Capitol Hill.
Annabelle Lima-Taub, a Hallandale Beach commissioner in Broward County, Florida, signed an online petition calling for Tlaib’s removal from office and posted it to her Facebook page.
“Proudly signed,” Lima-Taub, who is Jewish, wrote. “A Hamas-loving anti-Semite has NO place in government! She is a danger and would not put it past her to become a martyr and blow up Capitol Hill.”
this clearly crosses the line on so many levels. There's hyperbolic political rhetoric then there's just plain hysteria. This is hysteria.
