For five straight years mainstream media talking heads have made a special effort to discover any and each approach to label President Donald Trump a bigot, being dependent on misleading cases, an ever-growing meaning of "racist," and by and large phony news.
It is nothing unexpected, thusly, that the president and his allies don't actually leap out of their seats each time somebody on the left blames them for being "racist". When you live by a code under which in a real sense everything other than embracing the adages of Mao can be deciphered as bigotry, your allegations lose a ton of their power.
With regards to individuals on the left, in any case, you can accept that in the event that should THEY be blamed for bigotry (or some other sort of - ism), there must be a purpose behind it. In truth, at times that reason is only that the woke crowd requests more blood to satiate their never-ending thirst, however regularly the cases are somewhat more considerable than that. Particularly when similar allegations continue getting hurled at similar people.
Two individuals, to be more explicit: Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar. The initial two Muslim women to actually be chosen for the House of Representatives, the pair have – over and over – ventured into the dim waters of discrimination against Jews since joining Congress. It happened again this end of last week when Tlaib, who is Palestinian, reacted to Joe Biden's selection of Antony Blinken as his Secretary of State. After Faiz Shakir, Bernie Sanders' previous campaign manager, said that Blinken was a "solid choice," Tlaib said something with a truly odd take.
“So long as he doesn’t suppress my First Amendment right to speak out against [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu’s racist and inhumane policies,” she tweeted. “The Palestinian people deserve equality and justice.”

Above all else, how in the world would Biden's Secretary of State have the ability to stifle Rashida Tlaib's right to Free Speech? Second: Biden picks a Jewish man for his bureau, and this is what you go to first?
“Biden names a Jew to his cabinet. What’s Rashida’s response?! ‘Welp, as long as that Judische pick doesn’t stop me from focusing my hatred on one country, Israel, then he’s a good Jew!’ It’s not your 1A right you’re trying to protect but your vile Jew-hatred! That’s ALL yours!” said Dov Hikind of Americans Against Antisemitism.
I've got to agree with the sentiment here, ya know? What do you think?
