Rashida Tlaib tweeted an explanation today as to why she shared anti-gun activist David Hogg’s tweeted where he said “F**k a National day of prayer.”
Let me be clear as someone who has been praying through this all & as someone who attended the National Prayer Breakfast.
My retweet was not to be an attack on prayer. It was to bring attention to the need for meaningful action to combat this public health crisis.
Economic stimulus for individuals, families and our local communities.
Testing access for all.
Expanded paid sick leave and unemployment benefits.
Moratorium on water shutoffs, mortgage/rent payments and evictions.
Per TCO, Catholic league President William A. Donahue has sent the following letter to House Ethics Committee chairman Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL) calling for Rashida Tlaib to be reprimanded over sharing David Hogg’s obscene tweet mocking prayer.
In the letter Donahue writes:
Many Christians and Jews loathe her for her hate speech as well, but they don’t resort to obscenities. Now she has targeted entire collectivities, crossing the line by insulting Catholics, Protestants, Jews, Mormons, Muslims and people of all faiths.
In a time when the nation is trying to come together, Rep. Tlaib is attacking the faithful. At the very least, the House Ethics Committee should reprimand her.
In 1921, Rep. Thomas L. Blanton was actually censured for inserting into the Congressional Record a document that contained ‘blasphemous and obscene’ language. To do nothing is to send the wrong message to millions of Americans.
