Left-wing groups are suggesting that anti-Israel “squad” member Rashida Tlaib should be picked to serve in Joe Biden’s administration.
According to Fox News, the Sunrise Movement, an organization that addresses the climate change issues, members of Biden’s cabinet should be people who have no ties to fossil fuel companies and lobbyists, so the movement named Tlaib as a possible pick for secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
Tlaib has often been accused of peddling an anti-Israel agenda.
Last week, Tlaib said that she hopes Joe Biden’s nominee to be secretary of state, Antony Blinken will uphold constitutional free speech rights as they pertain to criticism of Israeli policies, particularly those criticizing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
“So long as he doesn’t suppress my First Amendment right to speak out against Netanyahu’s racist and inhumane policies,” Tlaib tweeted. “The Palestinian people deserve equality and justice.”
Shortly after taking office, Tlaib displayed a map in her congressional office with a note posted over Israel that reads “Palestine.” Shortly thereafter, she attacked Republican lawmakers and opponents of the anti-Israel BDS movement by saying “they forgot what country they represent.” In March, Tlaib was seen wearing a T-shirt of the State of Israel replaced with a Palestinian state.
