Bergman Introduces Resolution Censuring Tlaib for Antisemitism
Washington, October 11, 2023
Washington - Today, Representative Jack Bergman (R-MI) introduced a resolution to censure Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) for her antisemitism and disgraceful response to the attacks on our ally, Israel.
As Rep. Bergman explained in a statement, Tlaib’s “longstanding history of antisemitic and racist rhetoric toward Israel cannot go unchecked.” In further denouncing the Michigan Democrat’s hateful rhetoric, Bergman also stated:
“As Hamas terrorists beheaded infants, paraded dead Jewish teenagers through town, and attacked innocent concert goers in the most deadly day for Jews since the Holocaust, Rep. Rashida Tlaib chose to place the blame solely on Israel and the Jewish people.
“There is no moral equivalence between Israel defending itself and Hamas attacking innocent Israeli civilians. Tlaib’s long history of anti-Semitic tropes and blatant anti-Jewish propaganda is both disturbing and evil – and should have no place in the halls of Congress.”
Rep. Morgan Luttrell (R-TX) joined with Bergman in introducing the resolution:
“Hamas terrorists have raped and murdered women, beheaded Jewish babies, burned Jewish children alive and killed Americans, yet Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib refused to condemn the evil, brutal attacks. Worse, she justified their vile actions and called Israel an “apartheid state,” placing blame on Israel for the barbarism of these terrorists,” said Congressman Morgan Luttrell. “There should be zero tolerance for this atrocious antisemitism in America, especially in the halls of Congress.”
