(TargetLiberty.org) – Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) has pledged to introduce again a resolution to censure Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) following her recent statement that President Biden’s support for Israel in the war with Gaza was essentially the President showing support for “the genocide of the Palestinian people.”
The measure Greene brought forward originally dealt with the comments that Tlaib had originally made in which she criticized the Israeli government. However, that measure was shelved after all Democrats and 23 Republicans voted against this.
Despite this move, Greene has continued to push the need to have Tlaib censured, especially because of the comments that Tlaib made on Saturday in which she called for Palestinians and Israelis to coexist peacefully. In her post on X, Tlaib stated that his work was focused on ensuring that people regardless of their ethnicity and faith would be given dignity, freedom, and justice.
However, Greene did not perceive Tlaib’s message as peaceful and instead argued that she was calling for the genocide of Israel. Apart from Tlaib, Greene has also called out the 23 Republicans who voted against having Tlaib censured originally. As she pointed out they had originally censored Adam Schiff, so Tlaib, who she referred to as a “terrorist” should also be censored.
In June, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) was censured after making some negative comments slamming former President Donald Trump. However, the Democrats had argued that the effort made against Schiff was a “political theater.” They have also launched similar criticisms about the efforts to censure Tlaib.
On Tuesday night, the House voted to censure Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.)
