Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, August 08, 2018

Former Michigan legislator Rashida Tlaib on Wednesday won the Democratic nomination to run unopposed for a House seat, setting her up to become the first Muslim woman elected to Congress. Tlaib, who is of Palestinian descent, has previously said that her decision to run was prompted by increasing attacks against American-Muslims and immigrants since US President Donald Trump was elected to office. Tlaib's win means she will be the third Muslim to serve in the US House of Representatives this year, alongside Democratic Represenatives Keith Ellison of Minnesota and Andre Carson of Indiana.

It's that way in Sniper's bedroom too.

Sorry Sniper. Had to pick on someone. Don't forget to rinse her out before you go to bed!

BTW I noticed how half the white posters.. PATRON, REDIAL and CORKY... are looking for something nasty to say about her but it comes out as a lame joke.

Closet racists/bigots.... the problem is worse than I thought at first.

Either way, having a Muslim woman (hopefully the first of many) in Congress is now a reality.

Choke on it.

That's your ---- way, tosser/rigel/tremain. Subversion from within.

Relax... she is not from Pakistan. She is Palestinian. You can see these guys coming from miles away... gives you enough time to cross to the other side of the street in case you are a bigot.

Pakistanis .. you don't see them coming... they blend in too well, thanks to their British heritage... and they subverted the United Scum of America long ago in the 80s and gave themselves nukes with only token American resistance (compare that to the resistance the US is showing Iran!).

The US has been tapped out. Now it's Putin's turn to subvert.

Gotta love how pakistan lets the USA come into their country anytime we want to do direct action and extradition whenever we have targeted people of interest.

Pakistan sold Bin Ladin to the US for $4.7 Billion. Which is why there wasn't a shot fired.

Arabs are quite disposable.. for the right price.

anytime we want to

Nope.

USA wants Haqqani (taliban chief) dead... they can't do frak about it.

But what does anything about Pakistan have to do with this Palestinian-American lady???

Nothing at all.

You guys are just angry and frustrated because you are racists and bigots and can't stomach an Arab lady in Congress.

Sucks to be you, I guess. LOL

and extradition

Yes, it is true 90% of the prisoners in Guantanamo are people arrested by Pakistan and handed over to the US for huge bounties (in the Billions of dollars). This can be confirmed by the book "In the Line of Fire", by Ex-President of Pakistan, Pervaiz Musharaf, where he admits to doing that.

www.amazon.com

There is no extradition treaty between Pakistan and the USA, but there is one between Britain and the USA. Because Pakistan and India are "successor states" of the British Empire, the extradition agreement between US and UK is also legally binding to India/Pakistan.

This is just for clarification for inquiring minds. It has nothing to do with the topic of this thread.

Good for her. I hope she shows up in a hijab every so often. I also hope she has a strong stomach for the abuse that will come her way from the old, white guys and some members of the Capitol Hill police and staff. She may need to have someone fired or assigned to the grounds crew for it to stop.

America is a melting pot. Her presence here and in Congress makes both stronger...

It's amazing that a Texan knows so much about Pakistain , It's almost like you are there .

Not happening.

She isn't a "hijabi"... she is "normal" like the rest of 90% of Muslim women.

I have been there, more than once.

And I like to read a lot.

Unlike your ignorant self.

Hijabs are worn by:

1. Low income women who can't afford a fashionable hair-style.

2. Girls who want to be "in your face" and pretend to be superior. Like punks getting a punk haircut.

3. Taliban types.

4. Women with metal problems.

5. Cancer victims who lost their hair due to chemo (I know one such).

I imagine it'd be pretty hard to head-bang in a hijab.
Congratulation on the newest (soon to be elected) House Representative.

It was $4.6 Billion. Obama kept $100 Million for himself.

Nope. It was first disclosed by Indian intelligence and later confirmed by American sources.

The claim that Pakistan SOLD Bin Ladin is repeated in this book that is written by the former head of RAW.

(RAW.. "Research and Analysis Wing"... Indian CIA)

I know you don't have the education (dropout... probably pumps gas for a living) to read books but one should TRY to sometime.

Reading is good for health!
