In a bizarre interview statement, embattled freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib claims she has a “calming feeling” when she thinks of the Holocaust.
Conservative powerhouse Rasheed Kassam reported on the incident in Human Events, saying that Democratic Party Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) has said she feels a “kind of calming” when she thinks about the Holocaust, according to her own words from a new episode of the Yahoo News podcast Skullduggery.
Tlaib is interviewed by the Skullduggery podcast hosts for the first half of the program, wherein she discusses her opposition to President Trump, and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Asked about her position on the latter, she explains her support for a “one state solution” – a proposal also backed by terrorist faction Hamas.
While Tlaib explains she does not believe in violence like Hamas does, she explains around the 28 minute mark that she gets a “kind of calming feeling” when thinking of the violent murder and extermination of six million Jews:
“There’s always kind of a calming feeling I tell folks when I think of the Holocaust, and the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the fact that it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways, have been wiped out, and some people’s passports.
“And just all of it was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews, post-the Holocaust, post-the tragedy and the horrific persecution of Jews across the world at that time. And I love the fact that it was my ancestors that provided that, right, in many ways. But they did it in a way that took their human dignity away and it was forced on them.”
