Rashida Tlaib Supports Attack on America’s National Day of Prayer
Far-left Democrat rep backs expletive-filled insult against day of American unity
Far-left Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) has triggered outrage by expressing her support for an expletive-laden insult against America's National Day of Prayer.
Last week, Presdient Donald Trump declared Sunday, March 15 a National Day of Prayer as he sought to bring unity among Americans as the country battles the coronavirus pandemic.
Rep. Tlaib decided to endorse an explicit attack against the National Day of Prayer by retweeting with her official Twitter account.
Democratic "Squad" member Tlaib endorsed the divisive message posted by vocal gun control activist David Hogg on Twitter by sharing it with her almost one million followers.
"Don't let this administration address COVID-19 like our national gun violence epidemic," Hogg tweeted.
"F**k a National day of Prayer, we need immediate comprehensive action."
Talib's sharing of the polarizing message provoked an immediate backlash against the radical lawmaker.
The congresswoman's critics denounced the use of extreme language against the tradition of prayer.
She is accused of attacking a day that is inclusive of many religions, including her own Muslim faith.
According to News Thud, Tlaib later tried to clean up the controversy by attempting to excuse the move.
Under pressure, she followed up by tweeting:
"Let me be clear as someone who has been praying through this all & as someone who attended the National Prayer Breakfast.
"My retweet was not to be an attack on prayer.
"It was to bring attention to the need for meaningful action to combat this public health crisis.”
Tlaib has since deleted the tweet but not before screenshots were taken.
This isn't the first time Tlaib has employed expletives while pushing her political agenda.
One of the first controversies of her tenure in Congress was when she screamed: "We're gonna impeach the motherf***er!"
She made the explicit call about the president to a cheering crowd of supporters.
On the other hand, she objected mightily when a citizen expressed disfavor against her policies by paying for a billboard that called her and her congressional compatriots "idiots."
