The left have become renown for staging fake attacks in recent years, and amid this unfortunate backdrop Rep. Rashida Tlaib took to Twitter to announce that a hateful note was left on her office door.
Of course, with the Michigan Democrat’s office being in the Longworth House Office Building in Washington, D.C., we can assume there would be surveillance cameras in place.
“This is the hateful rhetoric & bullying on my door today. Stop the fear mongering & blantant lies,” Tlaib tweeted. “Come here w/ the value that all beings deserve human rights, including Palestinians. @IlhanMN & I fight for equality & justice for all. There’s nothing antisemitic about that!”

The Post-It note read: “Stop your disgusting Jew hatred. Your sign says ‘Justice for all.’ That means Jews too. Your Jihad against the Jews will fail. Am Yisrael Chai!”
The phrase at the end translates to, “The people of Israel live.”
Tlaib, who infamously introduced herself to Washington her first week in office by calling President Trump a “mother f–ker,” is one of the first two Muslim women to be elected to Congress in November.
The Palestinian American tagged the other woman, Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., in her tweet — Omar, a Somali refugee, has proven to be even more controversial than Tlaib, if that’s possible, repeatedly making anti-Semitic remarks.
In addition to saying support for Israel is “all about the Benjamins,” Omar played on the dual loyalty claim to suggest pro-Israel groups like AIPAC push for “allegiance” to a foreign country.
Omar has also attacked Trump, dismissing him as not being “human,” just days after her party passed a resolution denouncing hate, which started out as a condemnation of Omar’s most recent anti-Semitic remark, before her progressive allies came to her defense to water it down.
Both women have been quick to play the victim in the face of all the controversy they have orchestrated, playing the race card, the sexist card and the Islamophobic card.
Tlaib went so far as to accuse fellow Democrats of being bigots.
Citing a “double standard” in Congress, she claimed that Islamophobia “is still very present on both sides of the aisle.”
In the wake of special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report saying they did not find evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, Tlaib was pushing a letter this week calling for an effort to investigate Trump for “impeachable actions” following his inauguration, Fox News reported.
“[T]he most dangerous threat to our democracy is President Trump’s actions since taking the oath of office,” she said in the letter.
Social media users are skeptical of the note’s origins, and less than sypathetic to the Democrat playing the victim.
Here’s a quick sampling of responses from Twitter:

I took it upon myself to scrub the text and add a kinder, gentler message. Hope this helps. pic.twitter.com/yKnnxQmYWz
