Americans are furious. Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MN) has declared her intentions to deface the American flag — this is truly sickening. She needs to be called out.
Tlaib hates this country so much, she plans to display an altered flag at her congressional office with 51 stars instead of the traditional 50. Her reason: Support for DC statehood.
Tlaib said, “I would love one. I would love to hang it outside of my office.” DC Mayor Muriel Bowser was present as well, and she indicated that she would get one for Tlaib. “Yes, got it,” she said.
These stunning comments were delivered during a recent hearing for the House Oversight and Reform Committee. A bill, proposed by Democrats, would make DC the 51st state. It has zero Republican support so far.
Democrats are hiding behind the “taxation without representation” moniker, however, that’s not what this is truly about at all. Many have rightly concluded that this is about more power for Washington, DC.
Since DC isn’t recognized as a state, it does not have voting rights in Congress. The area’s lone congresswoman, Eleanor Holmes Norton, is a non-voting member, and there isn’t a member from DC in the Senate.
