Muslim Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib is a member of the controversial “Squad.”
Tlaib – along with Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – is taking over the Democrat Party.
And you won’t believe who Rashida Tlaib wants to boycott now.
Israel recently denied Tlaib and Omar entry into the country because they support the BDS movement that seeks to destroy the state of Israel economically.
It is against Israel’s law to support boycott movements and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu cited this law for why his government prevented their entry into the country.
Democrats howled in protest and threatened legislative retaliation against Israeli diplomats.
Left-wing comedian and host of HBO’s “Real Time” Bill Maher attacked this idea as a ridiculous purity test.
In response, Tlaib tweeted that liberals should boycott Maher’s show.
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://t.co/Oa49ZVfrVN

The Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement is popular among the unhinged left-wing base.
But it threatens to divide the party because Jewish American voters are among the most loyal in the Democrat coalition.
It is an open question as to whether Jewish Democrats will condone their party celebrating anti-Semites like Tlaib and Omar.
The 2020 election figures to be close.
And any defection of even just a slice of the Democrat base could be enough to ensure President Trump wins a second term.
