Race baiting far-left Muslim congresswoman Rashida Tlaib decided on Thursday to once again purposely tweet out disinformation concerning the senseless attack on a kosher grocery store in Jersey City, Tuesday morning.
The radical freshman legislator serving Michigan’s 13th congressional district, erroneously tweeted out, “This is heartbreaking,” with an accompanying photo of one of the Jewish victims, captioned under the same photo, “White supremacy kills.”
The Democrat’s tweet was posted after reports circulated connecting one of the attackers belonged to the black supremacist group Black Hebrew Israelites.
The distention of skin pigmentation between the two extremist groups, apparently didn’t register until Tlaib perhaps viewed the mug shots of the assailants later the same day and quickly deleted the tweet.
Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop tweeted Tuesday night. “Based on our initial investigation (which is ongoing) we now believe the active shooters targeted the location they attacked.”
Adding, “Due to an excess of caution, the community may see additional police resources in the days/weeks ahead. We have no indication there are any further threats.”
The New York Times also reported the attack, classified as an Anti-Semitic biased attack; “Six people, including one police officer, were killed in Jersey City, N.J., on Tuesday in a series of gunfights that brought destruction to a kosher market and made a residential area feel like a war zone,”
The TIMES continued: “The dead included three people in the market as well as two suspected shooters, officials said. The slain police officer, Detective Joseph Seals, 40, was a longtime veteran with the Jersey City Police Department, according to Chief Mike Kelly.”
The Paper-of-record also noted that Black Hebrew Israelites “are known for their inflammatory sidewalk ministers who employ provocation as a form of gospel, preaching a theology that says the chosen ones are black, Native American and Hispanic people.”
The slain male suspect “had posted anti-Semitic and anti-police screeds on internet forums in the past,” the Times said. “A manifesto-style document was found in the van that the assailants abandoned in the parking lot of the supermarket.”
Meanwhile “Squad” member Tlaib was catching lots of well deserved flak for her stupid inaccurate and inflammatory tweet.
“Tlaib deleted this but the fact that she even tweeted it in the first place despite the fact that the identity of the perps was widely circulated yesterday shows how little of a s*** she gives about dead Jews,” posted popular political Twitter account Neontaster. “It’s like that tweet was the first she’d heard of the story.”
“Now that Tlaib deleted this, I’m waiting to see if Tlaib thinks Jews being murdered is heartbreaking even when the killers don’t fit into her convenient political boxes.

“It’s telling, and frankly sick, that Tlaib tweeted out sympathies for the Jews that were murdered blaming it on white supremacists,” wrote Shoshanna Keats Jaskoll. “Didn’t care enough to find out what happened. Just enough to use dead Jews for her political agenda.”

However Tlaib is no stranger to racial or Anti-Semitic tweets, in fact she has a history of promoting racial hoaxes or debunked stories on Twitter, and as failed to issue any statement correcting her misleading comments, which becomes extremely problematic especially for an elected public official.
Perhaps the most egregious tweet by Tlaib, was her rush to judgment regarding the Covington Catholic incident in January at the Lincoln Memorial, where she didn’t bother to actually reserve comment until all the facts played out, rather then piling on and accusing young boys wearing MAGA caps of harassing and mocking a Native American elder peacefully beating a drum, later proving however he was the actual aggressor.
“This is so hard to watch,” Tlaib tweeted, linking to one of the early videos. “It reminds us of the growing hate & oppression we are all up against.”
