While most Americans spent the Memorial Day weekend reflecting on lives lost to preserve freedom, Detroit Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib was busy with more important matters.

“A Sitting-Member of Congress, Rashida Tlaib was a Speaker yesterday at the ‘People’s Conference for Palestine’ which was Funded and Supported by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a Communist-Terrorist Group which is Headquartered in the Syrian Capital of Damascus,” OSINTdefender posted to X on Sunday.

“The Group has been Designated a Foreign Terrorist Organization by the … United States, Japan, Canada, and the European Union; yet a U.S. Congresswoman thought it would be a Good Idea to speak at a conference which was Promoted by the Group.”

An accompanying video features Tlaib, the first Palestinian woman in Congress, welcoming conference attendees to “the most beautiful, blackest city in the country, the city of Detroit.”

“Each year, our country … sends billions of dollars to maintain an apartheid government and support the ongoing ethnic cleansing of Palestinians,” she said. “It is disgraceful that the Biden administration and my colleagues in Congress continue to smear (activists) for protesting to save lives, no matter their faith or ethnicity. It is cowardly, but we aren’t going to forget in November, are we?”

Tlaib alleged the funding to support Israel comes at the expense of schools in Detroit, “many of which when I go into the schools have garbage bags over their drinking fountains because they don’t have clean water.”

“President Biden, I hope you hear us loud and clear: Attacking the authority of the International Criminal Court and interfering in the legal process is nothing more … than an attempt to prevent the genocidal maniac Netanyahu and his senior Israeli officials from being held accountable for those crimes against humanity,” Tlaib raged, referring to Biden’s assertion Israeli defense against Hamas is not a genocide.

“You are an enabler, President Biden,” she said.

Tlaib suggested her colleges in Congress are more outraged over protests on college campuses in support of Hamas than “the atrocities happening right now … the war crimes.”

Two days later, on Memorial Day, Tlaib lent her support to pro-Hamas students protesting at Wayne State University, where they set up an encampment last week in an attempt to force university officials to acquiesce to a list of demands, including divestment from companies that do business with Israel.

“They are here, they’re ready to meet with you right now,” Tlaib said in a video posted to X by Stu. “Any board of regents, they’re ready to meet with you. This amazing student body is waiting, waiting here to say we are ready to meet with you to discuss the importance of divesting into war and destruction.”

“Please, stop threatening them with police and militarized, uh, kind of army coming over here to take over these students who are literally … the people you are supposed to serve,” she said.

Tlaib’s comments followed an offer by university officials that gave students until 6:30 p.m. to dismantle the encampment in exchange for securing a meeting with university leadership to discuss demands. That offer was immediately rejected by protestors, The Detroit News reports.

“This offer was a good faith attempt to find a path to dismantle the encampment,” WSU President Kimberly Andrews Espy said in a statement. “Though this offer was immediately declined, university leadership continues to encourage dialogue and meetings with all students to hear, discuss, and address important concerns.”

On Tuesday, WSU officials opted to shift to remote classes “due to the ongoing public safety issue.”

“With public safety concerns due to the fluid situation at the encampment, university leadership decided to shift to remote operations until further notice,” Vice President for Governmental and Community Affairs Patrick Lindsey wrote in an email to The News. “We have told the organizers to remove the encampment several times and they have declined to do so.”

Lindsey said there’s no immediate plans to clear the encampment, and protestors have vowed to continue to hold the campus hostage until their demands are met.

“We are confident in the ability of public safety officials to manage the situation, and we are confident in the president and her leadership team to effectively manage the situation with care and respect for all parties,” WSU board Vice Chair Bryan Barnhill II told The News.

Tlaib’s antics this past weekend build on her successful campaign to convince Michigan Democratic primary voters to cast “uncommitted” ballots for president in February. More than 100,000 Michiganders followed her advice, and the campaign and related “Abandon Biden” movement has since swelled to more than 500,000 nationwide.

Those Democrats have vowed to withhold their votes from Biden in November if the president does not call for a permanent ceasefire in war, and cut all military support for Israel.
