Florida official facing calls to resign for saying Muslim Rep. Tlaib might ‘blow up’ U.S. Capitol
The Hallandale Beach city commissioner said that the Muslim lawmaker, a newly elected Democrat from Michigan, is a “danger.”
A city commissioner from Florida is facing calls to resign for writing online that newly elected Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib, who is Muslim, was “a danger” and might “blow up Capitol Hill.”
Keep in mind, this is the same Congresswoman I just wrote about who did a dinner and pictures with a supporter who is a fanboy of Hamas and Hezbollah, and has called for the mass murder of Jews.
She is also the one that cracked a joke about Jewish genocide with a Post-It in her official Congressional office.
So yeah, maybe “danger” is an accurate word.
The commissioner, Anabelle Lima-Taub, of Hallandale Beach, signed an online petition last week calling for Tlaib’s removal, according to a photo of her Facebook post published by The Sun Sentinel.
“Proudly signed,” she wrote. “A Hamas loving anti-Semite has NO place in government! She is a danger and would not put it past her to become a martyr and blow up Capitol Hill.”
She clearly supports terrorists…
Her colleagues aren’t so proud, though.
Another Hallandale Beach commissioner, Michele Lazarow, said Wednesday that she would sponsor a resolution condemning Lima-Taub’s remarks.
“While individual commissioners have spoken out against Commissioner Lima-Taub’s hateful and bigoted remarks, I believe we need to take action as a city,” Lazarow wrote in a statement sent to reporters. “We must send a message to our community that this behavior won’t be tolerated.”
Hallandale Beach Vice Mayor Sabrina Javellana, who sits on the city commission as well, said Lima-Taub’s comments were “evidently racist and the sort of divisive rhetoric we see from President Trump which unfortunately trickles down,” in an email to NBC News, suggesting the commissioner apologize and engage with Muslim communities.
Jewish Democrats can’t question motivations of other clearly anti-Semitic, terrorism supporting Democrats. Jews are further down on the grievance hierarchy, they have no right to object to a Democrat calling for them to be driven into the sea.
“As a Commissioner she was elected to and claims to represent the residents of Hallandale Beach. That means all residents including our Muslim brothers and sisters,” she wrote. “If she can not fulfill her promise to serve all with utmost respect then she should resign.”
You mean the Muslim brothers and sisters who have been harassing the elderly Jews of Fort Lauderdale.
My family owns a Deli in Hallendale. I’ve seen it with my own eyes.
Lima-Taub’s online biography says she was born in Israel and was elected to the Hallandale Beach Commission in November 2016, vowing to restore ethics to local government and promote public safety. Her Facebook post has since been removed, and she did not respond to requests for comment.
No wonder she’s pissed. She has ever right to criticize a Congresswoman who proudly hangs out with Hamas supporters.
Hallendale is the largest Jewish community in Florida. If a representative can’t call out another Democrat for being about as awful for American Jews as she could be… well, that’s why Fort Lauderdale is the Democrat run hellhole that it is and will never change.
