Rashida Tlaib whines about moderate Dems ‘silencing districts’ like hers
Radical Democrat Rashida Tlaib is resisting moderate Democrats who insist that the party has gone too far to the left. “I can’t be silent,” she declared.
So-called centrists in the Democrat Party claim the GOP picked up seats (in so doing, defying conventional expectations) in the U.S. House and retained, as it appears now, control of the U.S. Senate because voters rejected the extremist policies advocated by Tlaib and others such as socialism and defunding the police.
The Michigan Congresswoman, who was re-elected to a safe House seat, isn’t having it, however, and apparently expects Democrat nominee Joe Biden, if he actually wins the presidency, to implement a progressive agenda.
“We’re not going to be successful if we’re silencing districts like mine. Me not being able to speak on behalf of many of my neighbors right now, many of which are black neighbors, means me being silenced. I can’t be silent,” the self-serving Tlaib told Politico.
“We are not interested in unity that asks people to sacrifice their freedom and their rights any longer. And if we truly want to unify our country, we have to really respect every single voice. We say that so willingly when we talk about Trump supporters, but we don’t say that willingly for my Black and brown neighbors and from LGBTQ neighbors or marginalized people. If [voters] can walk past blighted homes and school closures and pollution to vote for Biden-Harris, when they feel like they don’t have anything else, they deserve to be heard. I can’t believe that people are asking them to be quiet,” she concluded.
Despite her unlimited reach on social media and in the corporate media, Tlaib’s “Squad” colleague Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez similarly held a self-pity party because, in her view, she is receiving insufficient support from the Democrat Party, even to the point of deciding not seeking reelection.

“It’s the incoming. It’s the stress. It’s the violence. It’s the lack of support from your own party. It’s your own party thinking you’re the enemy. When your own colleagues talk anonymously in the press and then turn around and say you’re bad because you actually append your name to your opinion,” AOC lamented to the New York Times.
AOC claimed that she might go somewhere and “start a homestead” (whatever that means) rather than make a run for higher office.
“After Democrats underperformed expectations on Election Day, moderate House Democrats lashed out at their liberal colleagues in a caucus-wide conference call for advancing an agenda that, they say, cost the party a number of seats,” The Hill detailed.
