Far-left America-hater Rashida Tlaib lashed out at conservatives who oppose Washington DC statehood today.
Tlaib smeared conservatives at Heritage Foundation who she says are tied to “elites” who thought slavery was OK.
Evidently, Tlaid has not taken enough history to know the Democrats and southerners slavery and the Republicans ended the practice in America after a brutal civil war that killed an estimated 620,000 men.
Tlaib took the opportunity to take aim at the conservative Heritage Foundation — and tied it to “elites” who “thought it was OK to enslave people.”
According to Democrat Rashida Tlaib: “In opposing D.C. statehood… these representatives and their backers over at the Heritage Foundation — that’s right — are telling over 700,000 Americans to sit down, shut up, and enjoy this authoritarian system implemented by a bunch of elites who thought it was OK to enslave people for their selfish monetary gain hundreds of years ago.”
Tlaib is is as ignorant as she is hateful.
This is the type of filth coming from the Democrat-totalitarians today.
According to the Daily Caller, throughout U.S. history, states were admitted to the union according to the Admissions Clause under Article IV of the Constitution. But the clause is not applicable since D.C. is not a U.S. territory, making the issue of D.C. statehood more complex.
