It seems like Rep. Rashida Tlaib knows nothing else but to play the victim and call for boycotts. Tlaib is not happy about Bill Maher calling out for her boycott against Israel, and now she wants to boycott his show.
The Hill reported that Rep. Rashida Tlaib suggested that viewers should boycott comedian Bill Maher’s late-night HBO show over his vehement criticism of the international movement to boycott Israel.
Rep. Tlaib, who was denied entry to Israel last week over her support of the movement, stated that she was “tired of folks discrediting a form of speech that is centered on equality and freedom.”
“Maybe folks should boycott his show.” Rep. Tlaib posted.
“I am tired of folks discrediting a form of speech that is centered on equality and freedom.” she wrote on Twitter.
“This is exactly how they tried to discredit & stop the boycott to stand up against the apartheid in S. Africa,” Rep. Tlaib Rashida added. “It didn’t work then and it won’t now.”
Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s comments came just days after Israel abruptly announced that it would bar her and Rep. Ilhan Omar from entering the country during their upcoming trip overseas.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu defended the move, citing Israeli law prohibiting entry into the country for individuals who support a boycott of Israel.
