Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) showed her 19-year-old sensibilities recently, endorsing an explicit insult against the National Day of Prayer through a retweet on her official social media account.
The outburst exemplifies the increasingly shrill, profane, and hysterical tone of leftists during the administration of President Donald Trump.
The divisive message posted by gun control activist and media celebrity David Hogg on Twitter was shared by Tlaib to her nearly one million followers, reports The Blaze.
“Don’t let this administration address COVID-19 like our national gun violence epidemic,” Hogg tweeted. “F— a National day of Prayer, we need immediate comprehensive action.”
The tradition of prayer includes many religions, including Tlaib’s own Muslim faith, and goes to the very heart of how human beings have dealt with hardship and fear throughout history. It is telling when public figures mock and disparage it.
It is not the first time Tlaib has used highly inappropriate language in public while pushing her political agenda. One of the first highlights of her tenure in Congress was when she shouted, “We’re gonna impeach the m———–!” about the president to a crowd of cheering supporters.
Tlaib can dish out such abuse but is not good about taking it. She objected strenuously when a citizen expressed opposition to her policies by paying for a billboard that called her and her congressional colleagues “idiots.”
