Michael Medved: Rep. Tlaib’s Breathtaking Ignorance and Incoherence

Representative Rashida Tlaib, Democrat of Michigan, has delivered some of the most ignorant and incoherent statements ever made about the Israeli-Palestinian dispute.

She claims that the re-emergence of the Jewish State “was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews” and then adds “and I love the fact that it was my ancestors, Palestinians, that provided that right.”

Palestinians never “provided” a safe haven for Jews, but in fact supported Nazis and encouraged the Holocaust, while doing their level best to shut all routes of escape from Hitler’s inferno.

Polling data from YouGov showed 51% of Americans in their twenties would prefer to live in a country that was “Socialist” or “Communist”; only 42% chose to live under “Capitalism.” In other words, a majority of young people reject the land of liberty that produced them. An amazing 23% even classified the genocidal dictator Stalin as a “hero.” This reflects the fact that Millennials have scant memory of the bad old days of Marxist tyranny: after all, they were 3 or younger when the Berlin Wall fell and the Soviet Empire collapsed.

That’s why high school and college history teachers must take time from their relentless attacks on America and its values and give appropriate attention to educating a new generation about the tens of millions of dead or suffering victims of Marxist/Socialist “experiments.”
