Bill Maher Fires Back at Tlaib, Asks if She Wants to ‘Boycott 93 Percent’ of Her Party

Bill Maher

Comedian Bill Maher fired back at freshman firebrand Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) after the congresswoman called for viewers to boycott his show.

In a tweet published on Tuesday, Maher took aim at Tlaib for her calls to boycott his show, asking if the Michigan Democrat wanted to “boycott 93 percent of her own party” after claiming that number voted to “condemn” the pro-Palestine Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement.

“Some people have one move only: boycott. Cancel. Make-go-away,” wrote the comedian. “But here’s the thing, the house voted 318 to 17 to condemn the [BDS] movement, including 93% of Dems. Does Tlaib want to boycott 93% of her own party?”

The actual count from the House vote to condemn the movement in July was 398 to 17.

Maher also included a clip from his show “Real Time” where he blasted the BDS movement as a “bullshit purity test by people who want to appear woke but actually slept through history class.”

Maher went on to say in his clip that he believed that the calls to support the BDS movement were “predicated” on the idea that Palestinians “are browner” than Israeli Jews and are therefore “innocent and correct” over the Jewish people.

“It’s predicated on this notion — I think it’s very shallow thinking — that the Jews in Israel, mostly white, and the Palestinians are browner, so they must be innocent and correct, and the Jews must be wrong. As if the occupation came right out of the blue, that this completely peaceful people found themselves occupied.”

Tlaib responded to Maher’s comments by comparing it to how people “tried to discredit [and] stop the boycott” against apartheid in South Africa.

“I am tired of folks discrediting a form of speech that is centered on equality and freedom,” she wrote. “This is exactly how they tried to discredit [and] stop the boycott to stand up against the apartheid in [South] Africa. It didn’t work then and it won’t now.”

What do you think?

Here’s something that Tlaib and her Twisted Sisters fail to consider. They are literally just four Congress critters. Even Nancy Lugosi pointed this out.

The House, of which they are members, voted 318 to 17 AGAINST BDS. That included the 93% of Dims that Maher quotes.

She and Omar are unpopular for many reasons, but they have a hidden agenda no one talks about. Shariah and Islam are scripturally opposed to women’s rights, Jews, LGBTQ, and any one NOT Muslim. They have each advocated Islamic supremacy AND Shariah in what they thought were “private” speeches.

Schadenfruede. The joy of watching the Left eat its own.

Tlaib is a hate-filled hypocrite and liar. She hates that she and the BDS movement have been exposed.

I can only hope the MI voters see her for what she is and make her a “one hit” wonder. If she loses I have little doubt she’ll call them racists and other names (despite having elected her once).

The Left lacks intellect and imagination as it’s reflexive reactions are :

1. silencing, even by violence. q.v. Antifa

2. smear, they ALWAYS deploy the racist or other -ist labels because they are too lazy and stupid to actually argue in defense of their delusions.

3. boycott, as if that made ANY difference in today’s business climate. q.v. the success of the Chik-fil-a boycott.

They are childish idiots who desire “free” things and want control, but can’t make anything work.

Change my mind with real examples.
