Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib angrily shouted at Fox News reporter Hillary Vaughn after she was offered a chance to condemn “death to America” chants shouted at a rally in Dearborn, Michigan, last weekend.

The chants could be heard as activist Tarek Bazzi addressed the crowd at the rally. Bazzi criticized US foreign policy as he riled up the crowd by suggesting “the chant ‘Death to Israel’ has become the most logical chant across the world today.”

Bazzi also referred to President Biden as “Genocide Joe” and said he “has to go.”

The rally took place in Tlaib’s district, which includes Dearborn, home to the largest American Muslim population per capita, as well as the largest mosque in North America.

Rashida Tlaib Won’t Condemn ‘Death To America’ Chants

One would think that condemning “death to America” chants would be rather easy. Especially when you are a sitting member of the House of Representatives.

Not so for Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).

Vaughn asked: “At a rally in your district people were chanting ‘death to America’, do you condemn?”

“I do not talk to Fox News,” Tlaib replied. She shouts the phrase repeatedly.

Offered another opportunity, the Democrat lawmaker responded, “I don’t talk to people that use racist tropes.”

“Using racist tropes towards my community is what Fox News is about and I don’t talk to Fox News,” Tlaib claims without evidence.

“Is chanting death to America racist?” Vaughn wonders.

“I’m talking about your guys’ racist tropes. You guys know exactly what you do. I know you’re Islamophobic,” Tlaib adds.

Condemning “Death to America” chants is islamaphobic?

How about that.

Couldn’t Condemn The Murder Of Babies

This isn’t the first time Democrat Rashida Tlaib was unable to make a simple condemnation of a heinous atrocity.

Vaughn challenged her to comment on reports following the October 7 terrorist attack by Hamas that the militants had killed children.

While the validity of those claims was hazy, condemning such actions should have been easy with the addition of the phrase, “If true.”

Tlaib couldn’t bring herself to do it, however.

REPORTER: “Hamas terrorists have cut off babies’ heads…Do you support Israel’s rights to defend themselves?”

Tlaib is the first Palestinian-American woman elected to Congress, and has accused Israel of being an “apartheid government.”

She has a rich and documented history of spreading anti-Semitic tropes.

And while she struggles to condemn terrorism and chants of “death to America,” she has no problem expressing emotions – hysterically crying – when she and her fellow Squad members get called out for engaging in said anti-Semitism.
