(TruthAndLiberty.com) – Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Republican from Georgia, is set to present a motion this week to censure her colleague Rep. Rashida Tlaib, a Democrat from Michigan. Greene alleges that Tlaib, who is part of the progressive “Squad,” has engaged in “antisemitic behavior” and shown “affinity with terrorist groups.”
According to Greene, the Democratic Party has not taken sufficient steps to address Tlaib’s alleged actions. Greene suggests that Tlaib’s behavior is not a recent development but reflects her longstanding viewpoints. In a conversation with Fox News Digital, Greene stated her belief that it was her responsibility to bring these issues to the fore, claiming that the Democratic Party has been complacent in addressing them.
The allegations from Greene come in the wake of a pro-Palestinian demonstration that recently took place on Capitol Hill. The event was organized following a violent conflict that erupted between Hamas and Israel, resulting in the loss of many lives. Tlaib, who is the only Palestinian-American in Congress, was a speaker at this rally. During her speech, Tlaib criticized Israel for an attack on a hospital in Gaza. Despite intelligence reports suggesting that the hospital was actually hit by a stray rocket from Hamas, Tlaib did not withdraw her statement.
In her motion, Greene describes the rally as “an insurrection,” a term that she specifically used to categorize the event. She also points out Tlaib’s public support for a slogan associated with Hamas and the Palestine Liberation Organization, and her earlier remarks labeling Israel as an “apartheid government.”
When questioned about the likelihood of her censure motion receiving bipartisan support, Greene seemed optimistic about garnering votes from her Republican colleagues. She expressed disbelief at the idea that Democrats might not vote in favor of the motion.
Beyond the censure, Greene is also advocating for multiple House committees to conduct investigations into Tlaib’s participation in the pro-Palestinian rally. According to Greene, the House Ethics Committee, the House Administration Committee, the Department of Justice, and even possibly the CIA, should all be looking into the matter.
