Strange bedfellows: How a South Florida Democrat became the darling of the alt-right

Strange bedfellows: How a South Florida Democrat became the darling of the alt-right A wall of half a dozen men closed ranks around Rasha Mubarak. Leering at the young Palestinian-American woman who filmed them on her phone, they shoved Make America Great Again caps into her face, waved signs inscribed with anti-Muslim messages and spewed insults. Animal. Anti-Semite. Woman-hater. Terrorist. "My initial reaction was that the bigotry is real in South Florida," said Mubarak, who told the Miami Herald she was afraid the men would become physically violent. "It was a little overwhelming and scary." Mubarak's antagonists were part of a group gathered outside Hallandale Beach City Hall on Jan.

Freshman Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib once wrote a column for the Final Call, an official publication of the Nation of Islam and its notorious leader Louis Farrakhan.

Tlaib, a Palestinian American, has been facing criticism ever since her arrival in Congress and promise to impeach President Trump using profane language.

She later came under bipartisan criticism from Jewish groups for appearing with radical anti-Israel activists during her swearing in ceremony in Michigan, with some activists previously praising terror group Hezbollah and Palestinian terrorists, and saying that Israel has no right to exist.

Rashida Tlaib wrote in 2006 an op-ed for the Final Call, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan 's publication known for espousing anti-Semitism. Tlaib has not written in the Final Call since then. Tlaib has come under fire since her election to Congress for ties to individuals and groups that have

Rashida Harbi Tlaib (/təˈliːb/; born July 24, 1976) is an American politician and lawyer serving as the U.S. Representative for Michigan's 13th congressional district since 2019.

But it now has been unearthed that she was a guest contributor in 2006 to the publication that reprints Farrakhan’s anti-Semitic comments and offers their defense.

“Lost in the often-vitriolic national quarrel over immigration reform is any examination of proposed measures that would result in excessive punishment, such as detention and deportation, for the most minor offenses,” Tlaib wrote in a 2006 post in the Final Call. “Concern for 'national security' has introduced unprecedented insecurity to living in the United States as a legal permanent resident.”

The column, which takes an issue with deportations for minor offenses, remains to be accessible online and was first pointed out by blogger Jeryl Bier on social media.

A spokesperson for Tlaib told Business Insider that the article was from 2006 and “was not an endorsement of Farrakhan or anyone for that matter,” adding that the congresswoman “has not had any direct contact with Farrakhan and condemns his anti-Semitic and anti-LGBTQ views.”

Tlaib’s office didn’t respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

In 1984, Farrakhan praised Nazi leader Adolf Hitler. “The Jews don’t like Farrakhan, so they call me Hitler. Well, that’s a good name. Hitler was a very great man.”

More recently, he shared a video warning about “Satanic Jew,” prompting Twitter to take action against the hate preacher. “Will you recognize Satan? I wonder, will you see the Satanic Jew and the Synagogue of Satan, which has many races in it because Satan has deceived the whole world?” Farrakhan said.


He later doubled-down on his anti-Semitic rhetoric, posting another video in recent months where he says that he wasn’t prejudiced against Jewish people but was simply “anti-Termite.”

In November, Farrakhan and his groupies went on a solidarity trip to Iran and led “Death to America” chants. During the trip, Farrakhan told Iranian students that “America has never been a democracy,” and also led a “Death to Israel” chant at the end of his talk, Iranian news agencies reported.
