You knew this was coming.

A freshman member of the House of Representatives weighed in on this week’s “concentration camp” kerfuffle, accusing Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) and the GOP of “bullying” women of color.

“The continued policing and bullying by Liz and her crew of the WOC members of Congress is just proof that the GOP don’t have a policy agenda for the American people. Instead they want to focus on a hate agenda that doesn’t better our lives, but divides us more,” Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) said on Twitter.

Earlier this week, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) accused President Donald J. Trump’s administration of running “concentration camps” of migrants at the southern border, sparking major backlash. Ocasio-Cortez’s critics accused her of downplaying the Holocaust, as the term “concentration camp” carries a connotation of Adolf Hitler’s WWII death camps.

“Please [AOC] do us all a favor and spend just a few minutes learning some actual history. 6 million Jews were exterminated in the Holocaust. You demean their memory and disgrace yourself with comments like this,” Cheney said.

Since then, a raging debate has ensued between lawmakers – whose salaries we pay with our tax dollars – on Twitter over the meaning of the term “concentration camp.”

“Also [Liz Cheney] the fact that you employed the horrifying word ‘exterminated’ here (co-opting the language of the oppressor) tells us that it’s *you* that needs to brush up on your reading. Hope you enjoy defending concentration camps. I won’t back down fighting against them,” Ocasio-Cortez said on Tuesday.

The back-and-forth which has persisted for days culminated in Tlaib’s Thursday Tweet, which, in essence, accuses Republicans of being racists for arguing with Ocasio-Cortez.

There was only one way this rousing debate could end, and that was it.

ANOTHER PHONY? Sen. Josh Hawley Does Nothing to Oppose Big Tech Visa Giveaway for Indian Nationals

Hawley’s silence is deafening.

Published

Yesterday, Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) was able to pass S. 386 with unanimous consent in the Senate. The legislation is a green card giveaway lobbied for by Big Tech that will flood America with cheap Indian labor and displace native workers.

Lee has been exposed as a lawmaker who is in the back pocket of Silicon Valley monopolists at war with the Bill of Rights and Constitution:

While it is expected that Lee would completely sell America out, the silence from his colleagues who have claimed to vehemently oppose Big Tech has been far more suspicious. The unwillingness of Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) to oppose the measure has caused him to lose credibility among the populist “America First” base.

Big League Politics reported on how not one GOP senator had the courage to offer opposition to Lee’s big government giveaway to third-world foreigners at the behest of tech corporations who hate free speech:

Utah Senator Mike Lee succeeded in passing legislation in the Senate that would eliminate per-country-caps on recipients of H-1B visas on Wednesday, a policy change that would effectively monopolize the visa system for nationals of large countries such as India.

The Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act has been called the greatest corporate welfare program for Big Tech in recent memory. Lee has persistently sought to pass the corporate giveaway, with previous attempts to eliminate per-country-caps being blocked by Democrat Dick Durbin and Republican Rick Scott. Neither Senator objected to the unanimous passage of the modified S386 legislation on Wednesday afternoon.

Big Tech monopolies such as Apple, Google and Microsoft have fervently lobbied in favor of eliminating per-country caps, seeking to replace their American workforces with de facto indentured workers who accept lower wages and worse working conditions. The pervasive use of the H-1B visa in the American technology industry has displaced countless American workers from their careers.

Lee’s giveaway doesn’t specifically raise annual H-1B visa rates, although an increase in numbers of visa workers would be a likely consequence of its enactment. It’s expected that the program will be dominated by Indian nationals in the event that Lee’s HR1044/S386 is signed into law, providing massive corporations with a considerable labor pool willing to work for less in return for an American visa.

The legislation was most recently updated with a provision blocking Chinese nationals from using the H-1B program. This provision appears to have been instrumental in securing its passage through the Senate.

It appears that Hawley is attempting to co-opt President Trump’s movement without offering much of anything in terms of real substance.
