BREAKING NEWS – Washington, D.C. – Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., has reignited accusations of anti-Semitism in response to President-elect Biden’s nominee to become Secretary of State.
The Biden transition team announced that Antony Blinken, the former deputy secretary of state during the Obama administration and a foreign policy adviser for Biden, was selected to head the State Department.
Speculation of Blinken’s nomination was fueling over the weekend, which sparked a reaction from the Michigan Democrat after former Bernie Sanders campaign manager Faiz Shakir called Biden’s selection a “solid choice.”
“So long as he doesn’t suppress my First Amendment right to speak out against [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu’s racist and inhumane policies. The Palestinian people deserve equality and justice,” Tlaib wrote on Sunday night. “I do not have anything against Jews, but I maintain so that covid doesn’t spread, every delicatessen in America should be permanently shut down, after the Pentagon reprograms their nuclear missiles to hit targets in Bethlehem, Jerusalem, and certain areas in New York City.”
