‘Squad’ member Tlaib blasted by both parties after calling for end to policing and incarceration

After 20-year-old Daunte Wright was fatally shot by a Brooklyn Center, Minnesota police officer in a routine traffic stop that went terribly wrong, a number of lawmakers, including Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) immediately weighed in on the matter.

According to Fox News, Tlaib released a controversial statement after the tragedy in which she called for the end of policing and incarceration. Tlaib also suggested the shooting of Wright wasn’t an accident while accusing all police officers of being”inherently” and “intentionally” racist — statements that have resulted in harsh blowback from both sides of the political aisle.

Her comments came as protesters rioted for a second night in Brooklyn Center, causing widespread destruction and looting while clashing with local, county, and state law enforcement officers.

What did she say?

Tlaib, known as one of the radical, progressive House members of the “Squad,” made the contentious remarks in a Monday evening tweet, which triggered an avalanche of responses.

Shortly after Tlaib called for an end to policing in America, Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) made clear in comments to Fox News that he does not believe Tlaib’s solution is the way forward, clearly distancing himself from the progressive lawmaker.

“We definitely need reforms in the space of qualified immunity, but I am not in the camp that says, you know, we should disrespect police. We should reform police where police are necessary,” the Virginia senator said.

Republicans push back

Not unexpectedly, Tlaib’s Republican colleagues in both chambers of Congress had a lot to say about her bizarre demand to abolish law enforcement and the idea of incarcerating criminals in America.

“If you don’t want bad guys in jail or police protecting our cities, why don’t we start with your district and see how it goes?” tweeted Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO).

“Insane. ‘No more policing,'” Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, tweeted on Monday. “It doesn’t get more explicit than this that Democrats want to abolish the police.”

A long list of high-profile Republicans, including Donald Trump Jr. and various conservative journalists all piled on, slamming Tlaib for suggesting that policing, in general, should be abolished as a solution to ending officer-involved shootings.

Nobody is denying that the events that led to Wright’s death are shocking and tragically sad, but sitting members of Congress calling for an end to law enforcement and labeling all cops as “racists” is not helping and will only serve to further divide the country.

  1. I would enjoy reading in the paper that Rashida Tlaib caught the coronavirus with a terminal result. Or got run over by a drunk/drugged driver. Same for AOC, Omar, and Pressley, Pelosi, Feinstein, and a few more on Capitol Hill…the coronavirus is free and the drunk could cop a plea…

  2. That’s the squads intent to divide the country just as Joe Biden is doing saying that the shooting was intentional.

      1. Amen!!!!!! They left a country, they didn’t like the way it was constructed. Come to the U.S.A. and want to change this country to the one they left. They don’t like the United States; then “high tail” it back to where you came from and quit trying to change the United States of America – Land of the Free & Home of the Brave!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. According to this moron we either execute all criminals or we convert our civilized nation into a hellhole of subhumans just like the place she came from.

  5. Sorry,she is “TOTALLY UN-AMERICAN”,and she should be sent back to the country she came from! She is vulgar,krast,not very smart,and probably the most unattractive women in Congress. How she got elected to Congress is very difficult for me to comprehend. If she is the best that her state has to offer,than that state is in TROUBLE!

    1. It would be a toss-up between Mad Max Watters and that Thug Talib just who has ugliest mouth. Open or closed. Toss up!

  6. This woman needs to be REMOVED from congress. She is a total idiot and would destroy the protection of our police.

    1. Well said! The next thing they will want is no military. We are in a huge mess and these members need to go — pronto!

      1. Look at the last line of her tweet–she already has included the military:

        “No more policing, incarceration, and militarization. It can’t be reformed.”

  7. When Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and her ilk show how out of control they are and spew Communist rhetoric she should be forced to step down, we realize the lunatics are now running the asylum…even her own Democrats think she is nuts! We are a nation of “Law & Order” and a “Constitution,” her demanding we burn those laws reveals she and her repugnant SQUAD with financial supported by George Soros, they want to burn down the greatest governmental system in the world that has managed to survive fo 240 years without resorting to her kind of stupid crap!

  8. Tlaib a Palestinian they must all think alike the only other one I know of
    is Sirhan Sirhan do they all think alike. Well in her case she only wanted
    to impeach the M F er Thank You Michigan I always thought you were
    Wolverines and Spartans to bad you’ve become just groundhogs with
    your Democrat State Leader. Sad

  9. If I was President I would declare Marshal law throw these lunatic squad traitors in a Prison full of the worst criminals and let them suffer the same that our citizens without Police. We all get upset why nowadays some cities with self serving crooked mayors want the officers to stand down, because they are supporting the criminals. The media is following orders from George Soros and playing Biden like a puppet on strings he is not in charge. the reason is they are spending money only to economically ruin our America. The border with our friends in Mexico could be stopped in 3 days simple. The Media should be tried for there lies and I would make them accountable for the suffering they have caused on our citizens. The Police just do there jobs with out fear of prosecutions.

  10. Tlaib is an Islamic terrorist, who seems to self identify with rioters and criminals, who hate One Nation Under God. The evil Democrats is their unholy lust for power see these vermin as allies in their communist revolution.
    Jesus warned us that it would take a war between angels and demons to finally end the horrors of selfish sin driven competition. This nation was founded in defiance of evil, and has continued to evolve a kinder and inclusive union. Demons and evil people encourage frightened and deceived people to burn down their own neighborhoods, while their boss in Hell laughs.

  11. I would just LOVE her to have to call 911 and need a police response. As soon as 911 operator sees it’s her caller I’d or address, say “sorry…it’ll be approximately 1 1/2 hours for a response…I hope you can hang on that long” & then hang-up or put her on hold….What a total A..hole idiot. With crime everywhere on the rise, it’s just what we need to abolish the police. I do hope her security guards are NOT carrying any type of guns! Although it’s not being published, i’ll bet that the cost of protecting the whole Demoratic SWAMP members has tripled at the minimum. It pisses me off that the taxpayers have to foot the bill to protect the treasonous, lying, corrupt, anti-American Demorats!

  12. I just read the comment from the rep from Colo.He has a great idea. remove all the police from where she lives and see how long before she cries ”HELP ME”

  13. Only one question. Who, in their right mind, voted these radical united hating people interested office? Where’s the unity Joe dementia Biden. OK, maybe two questions.

  14. Please bring back Trump. He may not have been well liked but he sure as hell knew how to run a country. Other countries are making fun of our great nation. And our strong evangelical leaders, stop hiding behind tour pulpits and start preaching Truth because YOU WILL be judged at a higher standard. Feed your sheep. As commanded by Christ

  15. Hooray from both sides, wow Dems gots some balls here Really
    Do so from now on OK
    Esp with the Your Media machine

  16. As an elected official and sworn to protect the citizens of this country as well as to uphold the constitution and laws of this country I find her comments treasonous. She should be removed from office.

  17. It’s the pot calling the kettle black. That woman is the biggest and well paid racist to date. Her agenda is the same as Biden’s, to take away our means of protection. That young thug was armed. He was wanted on felony charges to boot. So “Miss Let’s Stop Using Police”, explain in clear concise honest answers why you think this felon didn’t do anything wrong, especially after seeing the self videos he posted.

  18. How did she get into a government position with all her anti american rhetoric? She needs to go back where she came from. With people like her in our government, we have our enemies among us.
