Tlaib loses it again

Empower Wisconsin | Oct. 3, 2019

Conspiracy theorist and “Squad” member Rashida Tlaib took another trip down paranoia lane this week, just days after the Michigan congresswoman accused conservative talk show host Vicki McKenna of being a “conspiracy theorist.”

Before telling Detroit’s police chief that he should hire only black people as facial recognition analysts, Tlaib demanded to know why a Detroit News journalists was filming her.

“Are you facial recognizing me right now?” Tlaib said. Some in the group touring the Detroit Police Department with Tlaib chuckled. She wasn’t kidding. “I’m sorry, who are you and why are you videotaping me?”

The reported identified himself. Tlaib looked at him incredulously.

Last week, Tlaib went all conspiracy theorist on conservative talk show host and Empower Wisconsin columnist Vicki McKenna.

“I looked you up … you call yourself a converted conservative and reformed Marxist,” Tlaib told McKenna, who was testifying before a congressional committee on vaping and e-cigarettes. “Are you a conspiracist theory.”

The exchange, on video, has gone viral.

As Fox News reported, Tlaib made her suggestions to Detroit Police Chief James Craig while they toured the Real Time Crime Center, where the department used facial recognition technology to find suspects.

“Analysts need to be African-Americans, not people that are not,” Tlaib said. “It’s true, I think non-African-Americans think African-Americans all look the same!” She said she has witnessed people confuse Reps. John Lewis, D-Ga., and Elijah Cummings, D-Md., who both are black and bald.

Craig, who is black, did not go for Tlaib’s suggestion.
