‘The Squad’ Embarrasses Itself Again

Most ridiculously, Rashida Tlaib and Cori Bush voted against a bill to block Hamas terrorists from entering the country.

“The Squad” is a group of “progressive” House representatives that is intersectional and hard left. And recently, each of Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Cori Bush (D-MO), Jamaal Bowman (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) has stepped in it politically.

Ilhan Omar started off the Squad’s recent embarrassments by telling constituents in Minnesota: “The U.S. government will only do what Somalians in the U.S. tell them to do. They will do what we want and nothing else. They must follow our orders, and that is how we will safeguard the interest of Somalia. We Somalians must have the confidence in ourselves that we call the shots in the U.S. … As Somalis, one day, we will go after our missing territories.” Omar’s anti-American rhetoric has prompted calls for her expulsion from Congress.

Cori Bush is under investigation for allegedly using taxpayer funds to finance her private security team.

Jamaal Bowman had his 9/11 conspiracy theory exposed and mocked.

Ayanna Pressley called Walgreens racist for closing stores in Boston due to high crime.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has only gotten in trouble for saying her usual bout of ignorant idiocies, so she was the only one who has kept her nose relatively clean.

The most ridiculous story goes to Rashida Tlaib and Cori Bush. Last week, they were the only two congressional members to vote against a bill that should have been a no-brainer. The bill in question, HR 6679, also known as the No Immigration Benefits for Hamas Terrorists Act, states that any Gazan who had anything to do with the October 7 attack on Israel would not be eligible for sanctuary in or immigration to the U.S. The language of the bill reads, “Any alien who carried out, participated in, planned, financed, afforded material support to, or otherwise facilitated any of the attacks against Israel initiated by Hamas beginning on October 7, 2023 be inadmissible for citizenship and be ineligible for any relief under immigration law.”

In other words, don’t let known Hamas terrorists come to the U.S. It should have been an easy “Yes” vote. However, Tlaib and Bush claimed that this bill is not only redundant, but it makes people have negative feelings toward Palestinians, Arabs, and/or Muslims and is “harmful.”

Tlaib is the lone Palestinian-American member of Congress and has been particularly incendiary on this particular issue. She forwarded the Hamas-spread lie that Israel was responsible for a rocket that destroyed a hospital and killed 500. In reality, it was a Hamas rocket that destroyed a parking lot and few were killed. She also infamously smirked when questioned about the brutal killings of Israeli babies through the act of beheading. She was even officially censured by the House for parroting the genocidal chant “from the river to the sea” in regards to eradicating Israel.

Bush, on the other hand, doesn’t want police in her constituents’ neighborhoods, but she herself needs protection because her work is more important than yours. Thus, she is now under DOJ investigation for misappropriation of funds. Earlier last week, Bush also kicked off her reelection campaign by claiming the Israel-Hamas war was about “white supremacy.” It’s no wonder she voted “No” to banning Hamas-associated Palestinians from entering the country.

Bush doesn’t care if these potential immigrants helped murder 1,200 Israelis and kidnap hundreds more. She believes that Hamas must be correct in its actions because Israel represents a “whiter” race and is a staunch supporter of Western values. It’s an absurd and evil way of thinking, but again, when one holds Racial Marxism as the standard with which to measure morality, one is left with no morality at all.

The fact that the Squad has had such a disastrous few days wasn’t lost even on leftist outlets such as Politico, which hinted that these progressives are going to be hard-pressed to win their reelection campaigns.

We seriously doubt that, but electoral trouble couldn’t happen to a more worthy group.
