Foul-Mouthed Muslim Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib Endorses Bernie Sanders for President
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) has joined her colleagues in the far-left Congressional ‘Squad’ of diverse freshmen legislators, and endorsed the presidential campaign of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) at an event in Detroit on Sunday evening.
The event took place at Detroit’s Cass Technical High School and featured Sanders and Tlaib along with local rock star Jack White. The entire event can be seen here:
“We deserve someone who wrote the damn bill,” Tlaib said to the crowd, referring to a popularized debate quote from the Vermont socialist regarding universal healthcare. “We deserve Bernie Sanders.”
“It always seems it is impossible until it is done,” Sanders said at the rally. “Don’t believe anyone that tells you that moving towards a society of justice is impossible.”
Sanders’ social media account also released a video of Tlaib heaping massive praise upon the old, white career politician.

The ladies of the “Squad” are clearly coalescing their rising media star power behind Sanders in the hopes to be power players within his Marxist regime. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) endorsed Sanders’ campaign earlier this month:
Freshman Democratic congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will endorse Vermont Senator and Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders in a campaign rally in Queens on Saturday, according to reporting Tuesday night from the Washington Post.
The formal endorsement places Ocasio-Cortez firmly in the camp of her fellow democratic socialist. AOC has become a symbol of the left wing of the Democratic Party often represented by Sanders, and it’s probably unsurprising that the rising Democrat star would align with Sanders, who she aligns closely on policy.
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), the anti-Semitic and anti-white Somalian refugee turned Congresswoman, quickly followed the lead of Ocasio-Cortez and endorsed Sanders for president as well:
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), the Somalia-born Congresswoman whose offensive remarks against America and Israel have made her a reviled figure nationally, has officially endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for President in 2020.
“Bernie is leading a working class movement to defeat Donald Trump that transcends generation, ethnicity, and geography,” Omar said in a statement released Tuesday night. “And it’s why I believe Bernie Sanders is the best candidate to take on Donald Trump in 2020.”
However, it does not appear that the endorsements of the “Squad” are having as much of an impact on the presidential race. A state-wide activist group, Michigan Conservative Coalition, staged a protest at the Sanders/Tlaib rally today and noted how dismal the attendance was for the event in an Instagram post.
“We went in repudiation of socialism, and in defense of individual liberty,” said David Dudenhoefer, one of the protest organizers who is running as a Republican to defeat Tlaib in Michigan’s 13th Congressional district next year.
“Socialists can only offer a temporary band-aid in one hand, while they hold a knife in the other. Only through liberty can every individual find the best pathway toward peace and prosperity,” he told Big League Politics.
Following his recent heart attack, Sanders can no longer even run a competitive campaign for the presidency. The hardcore socialist has not been able to recapture his 2016 magic, when he posed a legitimate shot to beat Hillary Clinton. The “Squad” has likely picked a losing candidate.
