Tlaib says Holocaust gives her ‘a calming feeling,’ wrongly says Palestinians tried ‘to create a safe haven’ for Jews

It really makes no sense why a politician would bring up the Holocaust. It never ever works out for them, no matter how innocent the intent.

Why? Well, they either don’t know what they are talking about and misstate facts and/or aren’t articulate enough and end up saying something truly idiotic.

Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib is in hot water once again, this time for talking about the Holocaust and trying to attach positive feelings to the attempted extermination to an entire group of people.

While appearing on the Yahoo podcast “Skullduggery,” Tlaib said the following:

“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.”

She went on to say:

“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.”

Her claim about Palestinians helping Jews create a safe haven is so wrong and outrageous that even CNN is calling her out on that fact.

Of course you know how Tlaib is responding, by playing the victim.
