Rashida Tlaib blames shooting of Jews on white supremacy: ‘Um, the shooters were black’

Muslim Rep. Rashida Tlaib used the murder of Jews to amplify her political ideology.

Following the Jersey City shootings that left one police officer and three Orthodox Jews dead, she posted a tweet blaming the shootings on white supremacy.

But the moment she realized that the shootings were in fact committed by members of the anti-Semitic Black Hebrew Israelites movement, she deleted her tweet:

But even more telling is how she never followed up the deletion with anything. As of around noon Thursday, there wasn’t a single tweet on her news feed about the Jersey City shootings. It’s as if the shootings never even happened in the first place.

Or, rather, it’s as if she doesn’t actually give a damn about what happened.

According to local reports, when Jersey City Police Department veteran Detective Joseph Seals tried on Tuesday to “interdict” two suspects accused of murder in an unrelated case, they opened fire, killing him, and then fled in a stolen truck.

After reportedly getting stuck in traffic in a nearby Jewish neighborhood, the suspects then hijacked a kosher deli and engaged in a gun battle with authorities.

In all, six people wound up dead because of the Jersey City shooting, as it’s being called, including Det. Seals, three bystanders in the deli and the two suspects.

The deceased suspects have since been identified as David N. Anderson, 47, and his girlfriend, Francine Graham, 50. And according to sources, they were both rabid anti-Semites who closely followed the Black Hebrew Israelites.

“David Anderson was described by law enforcement sources on Wednesday as a follower of the Black Hebrew Israelites, and he introduced girlfriend and accomplice Francine Graham to their beliefs,” the New York Post reported Wednesday.

“I know she has a religion called the black Jews or something. She just told me that was her religion. Honestly, I didn’t pay too much attention. I know they kept the Sabbath,” one of their former neighbors told the paper.

Another neighbor professed to hearing them sometimes loudly chant “religious stuff” from inside their apartment.

New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal announced at a press conference Thursday afternoon that their actions at the deli appeared to indeed have been motivated by “a bias toward both the Jewish community and law enforcement.”

Avi Schnall, the director for New Jersey’s Office of Agudah Israel of America, a lobbying group for Orthodox Jews, has reportedly added. “This potentially may be the worst anti-Semitic incident in New Jersey, it is very possible.”

This all dovetails with Tlaib, who as of Thursday afternoon seemed to have no interest in expressing any thoughts whatsoever about the Jersey City shootings.

While it’d be unfair to speculate on her motives, it should be noted that her brand of anti-Semitism shares some aspects in common with the anti-Semitism practiced by the Black Hebrew Israelites.

“Anti-Semitic Black Hebrew Israelites assert that white people are agents of Satan, Jews are liars and false worshipers of God, and blacks are the true “chosen people” and are racially superior to other ethnicities,” the Anti-Defamation League notes.

The anti-Semitic group to which Tlaib belongs, B.D.S., likewise believes in similar “tropes of Jewish evil, power and mendacity,” according to the AMCHA Initiative, a nonprofit dedicate do to combating anti-Semitism.

Moreover, Tlaib’s close congressional partner-in-crime, fellow anti-Semitic Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar, has a track record of defending the Israelites.

After the Covington debacle earlier this year, Omar tried to portray the five Black Hebrew Israelites who were caught on camera verbally harassing the Covington Catholic High School students as the true victims:

Six months later, Omar and Tlaib teamed up to vote against an otherwise overwhelming bipartisan pro-Israel resolution.

Like the Black Hebrew Isrealites, Omar and Tlaib have never cared much for the Jewish people. And now that three Orthodox Jews are dead because of the actions of two Black Hebrew Isrealites, they don’t seem to care too much about that either.
