Bill Maher vs. Rashida Tlaib- It's on!
Bill Maher and I don't agree on much, but throughout Trump's presidency, he's had his lucid moments, like calling BDS what it is. It's a Leftist purity test and it's baloney (his words can't be written verbatim but you get his point). Maher said on his show:
"BDS is a (bleep) purity test by people who want to appear woke and have actually slept through history class, It's predicated on this notion that is very shallow thinking, that the Jews are in Israel are mostly white and the Palestinians are browner so they [Palestinians] must be innocent and correct and the Jews must be wrong. As if occupation came out of the blue, that this completely peaceful people found themselves occupied. Forget about the infectadas and the suicide bombings and the rockets and how many wars?"
To which the one-trick pony, Tlaib, responded that his show should be boycotted. Because boycotting and shutting anyone up who disagrees with Tlaib is her go-to move. Not, "Hey, let me come on your show and debate BDS". Nope. Just destroy.

"Maybe folks should boycott his show.
I am tired of folks discrediting a form of speech that is centered on equality and freedom. This is exactly how they tried to discredit & stop the boycott to stand up against the apartheid in S. Africa. It didn't work then and it won't now. https://twitter.com/mehdirhasan/status/1162767093730881537 …"
So she's gone from comparing Jews to Nazis to comparing Jews in Israel to apartheid.
Maher responded, " Some people have one move only: boycott. Cancel. Make-go-away. 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? "
So, does Tlaib want to boycott the vast majority of her party? It seems she's trying to do to Maher what she accused him of doing to her. She's a zero-sum game Arab who's only reason for getting herself into Congress is to destroy Israel and wipe it off the face of the map. And destroy Trump. Can't forget that. Why Pelosi allows her and her Beltway Bolshevik mates to sit on foreign affairs committees is beyond anyone's reasoned thinking.
But the silver lining will be that like most of the Left's boycotts, the have they opposite effect, and Maher will probably see a bump in his ratings.
