Hello, and welcome to ATP’s, Really Dumb Things, They Said. I’m Barry Nussbaum.
Infamous Squad member Rashida Tlaib from Michigan spoke out against the funding for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system on the House floor.
She labeled Israel’s war with Hamas a, “manufactured issue,” and then accused Israel of apartheid. Then she went dumbly on to say that she would not support efforts to allow and encourage war crimes, human rights violations, and violence. Now, you may remember that war months ago. It’s where Hamas terrorists fired over 4,500 missiles into Israel-aimed exclusively at civilian population centers.
The intent was to create massive terror, which was successful while killing as many Jews as possible. That part didn’t work out. Ted Deutch, the House Foreign Affairs Committee chairman, called Tlaib’s comments anti-Semitic and falsely characterizing Israel.
However, Reps. Andre Carson, Marie Newman, Jesus Garcia, Raul Grijalva, and Cori Bush were also part of the squad who voted against it. Rep. Thomas Massie of Kentucky voted against the bill because he just opposes all foreign aid.
So, to be clear, the Iron Dome is a missile defense system that can intercept and destroy short-range rockets and mortars. It has no offensive uses and is only fired from Israel to intercept incoming missiles over Israeli territory.
This lady is dumb. She’s an anti-Semite and should be called out for her lies about Jews and the Jewish state.
NY Times WaPo, etc., Quote Raging anit-Semite as Expert
Hello, and welcome to American Truth Project’s, Really Dumb Things, They Said. I’m Barry Nussbaum.
Mariam Barghouti is a relatively well-known go-to voice on Israeli-Palestinian affairs.
She comes from Ramallah, and her pieces have offered what one might consider an insider’s account of life in the West Bank that provides a withering narrative about the colonialist project, otherwise known as the State of Israel.
Get this! Her work has been published in the New York Times, The Washington Post, The Guardian, Newsweek, etc. She’s been interviewed on CNN and seemingly on the BBC constantly. She’s quoted in the LA Times, The Huffington Post, the Business Insider, and many other publications. She’s been described variously as a Palestinian journalist, a writer, an analyst, and a researcher.
Barghouti is also a raging anti-Semite. She uses a verified Twitter account with over 74,000 followers where she spreads vicious Jew-hatred on her social media platforms, including describing Israel as beating Hitler at his own game since 1948 and calling the Jewish state a racist Zionist pig. In other words, she asserts that Zionism did nothing but exploit the tragedy of the Holocaust, and then she claims that former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is a Nazi.
She’s obviously unaware that Netanyahu’s wife, Sara, lost family members in Hitler’s genocide against the Jewish people. There are many more incredible hateful lies she tells to her followers around the world in many famous and widely distributed publications.
As I just mentioned, she’s a hateful liar who is quoted constantly by big-name publications that know better but won’t act better. It’s dumb all around, and shame on all of you for encouraging these lies.
Cong. Rashida Tlaib Said: “Paying the Bills You Owe is Like Living Under Military…
Hello, and welcome to ATP’s, Really Dumb Things They Said. I’m Barry Nussbaum.
ATP’s favorite dumb person, Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib, is pushing for legislation, get this; that would let people who fail to pay their water, electricity, or broadband bills off the hook. Cancel all their water, electricity, broadband debt, and all their bills.
The squad member tweeted: Stop the shutoffs.
The Palestinian-American legislator likened the act of shutting off the water over unpaid bills to living under what she calls military occupation.
Let me translate for you. Bills that people have but decide not to pay or can’t pay when someone asks you to pay the bill. That’s the same as living in a dictatorship. I hope you realize this lady is a member of Congress.
Seriously, she is dumb, she is crazy, and you need to know about her.
Far-Left Cong. Candidate Loses After Promise to Close the Pentagon
Barry Nussbaum: Hello, and welcome to ATP’s, Really Dumb Things, They Said. I’m Barry Nussbaum. A then associated with the campaign of left-wing progressive congressional candidate Nina Turner, protested for health care to be paid for by, get this dismantling the Pentagon.
No more Defense Department. This position raised eyebrows with the tens of thousands of veterans in the Ohio district where she’s been campaigning, and her campaign disavowed the ban, but after that distancing, it was revealed that her campaign has been paying the owner of the band, like $5,000 for a couple of months to drive around her district with that specific messaging.
After Turner disavowed the messaging because it was hurting her campaign support it was revealed that she had previously put forward the exact same proposal several times. Basically, saying that America needs armed forces, but not anymore because the Pentagon was the cause of the climate crisis.
Her dumb campaign positions no doubt led to her getting trounced in the recent Democratic primary. In spite of support from socialist-communist senator Bernie Sanders, and avowed radical Attorney General Keith Ellison of Minnesota.
You can say dumb things, but sometimes you get busted. Turner got busted.
