Rashida Tlaib says it’s time to rewrite Civil Rights Act of 1964, giving it more teeth


A Muslim woman who is running for Congress says she has plans to expand the Civil Rights Act of 1964 in a way that would shield “communities of color” from a whole host of negative outcomes, including racial profiling by police, utility shutoffs for delinquent bill-payers and the denial of a bank loan based on a bad credit score.

Rashida Tlaib, a 41-year-old attorney born and raised in Detroit by Palestinian immigrant parents, made history as Michigan’s first Muslim woman elected to the state legislature in 2008, winning two more terms after that. Now, she is looking for a promotion to the U.S. Congress, running in a special election for the seat vacated by disgraced Detroit Congressman John Conyers, who was forced to resign earlier this year after being accused of sexually harassing and molesting multiple women.

Conyers’ post, Michigan’s District 13, is a safe seat for Democrats that includes most of Detroit and Wayne County. But Tlaib is seeking to stand out from the crowded Democrat field by promising to offer a smorgasbord of unprecedented government freebies set aside exclusively for minorities.

Tlaib held a 4-to-1 fundraising advantage over her closest opponent, Westland Mayor Bill Wild, after the first quarter of 2018 by raising nearly $600,000.

She, along with Abdul Mohamed El-Sayed, who is running for governor of Michigan, is part of a new generation of young Muslims seeking to win political office by catering to a coalition of liberal blacks, Muslims, Hispanics, LGBTQs, college students and left-leaning women. This group also includes Ilhan Omar, the Somali woman seeking to fill a seat being vacated by Rep. Keith Ellison in Minnesota, where Ellison is running for attorney general, and Tahirah Amatul-Wadud, a black Muslim woman running for the District 1 congressional seat in Massachusetts.

Sending the ‘middle finger’ to Trump

But, judging by their divisive rhetoric, it’s difficult to tell if these Muslim candidates are more devoted to Muhammad or Marx.

Dr. Abdul El-Sayed, shown here with his wife, is running for governor of Michigan as a Democrat.

In an interview with the Detroit Free Press, El-Sayed likened his gubernatorial campaign in Michigan to “a 215-pound middle finger to Donald Trump.” He derides Trump’s “America-first nationalist agenda” as “not what Michigan stands for.” [One look around metro Detroit and its massive vacant factories begs the question of how well globalism, the antithesis of “America-first,” has served the interests of hardworking Michiganders.]

That aggressive rhetoric extends not only to Trump but to anyone who supports him.

El-Sayed stated at a recent debate that Muslims “definitely hate” Patrick Colbeck, the GOP gubernatorial candidate in Michigan whose policies most closely resemble those of Trump. El-Sayed said that, if elected, he will transform Michigan into a sanctuary state, just like California, rolling out the welcome mat for criminal illegal migrants.

Michigan has the nation’s highest concentration of Arab-Americans, the majority of whom are Muslim. Tapping into that deep pocket of Islamic voters in states like Michigan, Minnesota, Massachusetts, Texas and Florida has been a stated goal of Muslim groups such as EMGAGE, MPAC and JETPAC, all of which are pooling their resources to elect Muslims to public office nationwide in the November 2018 elections.

Even the liberal Detroit Free Press has indicated that El-Sayed’s candidacy for governor is more about “changing the national political conversation” by taking a slap at Trump than it is about helping Michigan solve its unique public-policy challenges.

Tlaib, El-Sayed, Omar and Amatul-Wadud all have the backing of people and entities tied to the extremist Muslim Brotherhood, including EMGAGE, MPAC and the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

The rewriting of the Civil Rights Act proposed by Tlaib would allow pre-ordained “victims” to file punitive civil-rights lawsuits against state and local governments, police departments, banks, utilities and other businesses based on a so-called “disparate impact” on minorities. This means that the government or business could be deemed guilty of discriminatory practices merely by mathematical equations, without any proof of racial bias or ill intent.

For example, if blacks make up 30 percent of a county’s population but the county jail has a racial makeup of 60 percent blacks, that could be grounds for a racial bias lawsuit. The same goes for a bank’s foreclosure ratio or a city’s water shut-off ratio for various minorities. It must not exceed the racial makeup of the city, county or state or it will be called into question.

The changes would help to end practices such as “refusing car and home loans or insurance to people who live in low-income areas and have low credit scores; law enforcement profiling; sentencing inconsistencies; the use of credit scores to determine qualification for loans, insurance or employment; shutoffs of water and utility services and unfair tax assessments and foreclosures,” the Detroit News reports.

Tlaib admits such a law would be difficult to pass through Congress but promises to continue introducing the bill every year until it passes.

Rashida Tlaib

“Absolutely, it’s going to take me years, possibly several tries to succeed,” she told the News. But expanding the 55-year-old Civil Rights Act in such a way is something the Democratic base in Michigan’s 13th District would likely support, according to the newspaper.

It’s also something supported by Muslim Brotherhood offshoots such as EMGAGE PAC, which is raising money for Tlaib from outside the state. EMGAGE has a major fundraiser planned for her in Florida on Saturday, July 14.

In a flyer promoting the event, EMGAGE says Tlaib “aims to represent us at the federal level by serving economic justice to working-class people, expanding healthcare coverage, and increasing access to higher education.”

EMGAGE admits in the flyer that it is seeking to develop a “national network” of like-minded Muslims who will win political offices under the Democrat banner. It states:

“As Muslims, we must uplift each others’ voices not just in our own communities, but across the country. Michigan is one of the U.S states most heavily populated with Muslims and is therefore a vital part of our national network.

“Rashida Tlaib represents our values and wants to bring them to the U.S congress. We need to make sure we don’t miss this opportunity to play our part and make that happen.”

Imagine if Catholics or evangelicals sent out messages like this, encouraging the flock to contribute money toward the development of a “national network” of Catholic or evangelical politicians. It would be considered overtly xenophobic and small-minded, says Dick Manasseri, who is active in the Republican Party and a resident of Rochester Hills, Michigan.

Manasseri said El-Sayed was captured on tape early in his campaign describing himself as “left of left” and Michigan voters are not aware of just how far left and how anti-Jewish El-Sayed would be. He served as vice president of the rabidly anti-Semitic Muslim Student Association while studying medicine at the University of Michigan while his future wife, Sarah, served as MSA president. But they seek to downplay that part of their agenda during the campaign, Manasseri said.

“Abdul, as well as Rashida, are emphasizing their Bernie Sander’s qualities, hoping voters will not focus on their Muslim allegiance,” Manasseri said. “They are outspoken Democratic Socialists while quietly Sharia-compliant.”

Even if he loses, El-Sayed is only 33 years old and will no doubt run again for political office. Some leftist publications, such as the UK’s Guardian, have already crowned him the Democrat Party’s “new Obama.”

El-Sayed’s candidacy has been endorsed by the Muslim mother of hate, Linda Sarsour, who spews invective at the world’s only Jewish state at every opportunity and admonishes Muslims in America to not assimilate or accept American culture as anything but evil. She was a co-leader of the Women’s March on Washington that protested Trump before he’d even made his first policy move and more recently has been joining protests against ICE and any enforcement of existing immigration laws.

The Democrat Party’s ability to deliver “left of left” candidates in primary elections must be taken seriously following the stunning victory last month of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over the fourth-highest ranking member of the Democrats’ House leadership team, Rep. Joseph Crowley in New York’s 14th Congressional District. Ocasio-Cortez, only 28 and a former Bernie Sanders campaign organizer, is part of the party’s “changing of the guard,” noted the New York Times. She openly advocates for not just liberalizing immigration laws, but abolishing them.

Tlaib is singing to the same choir when she talks about passing laws that would force banks and utilities to stop enforcing rules for certain protected classes – rules that have applied to everyone forever, such as the need to have good credit in order to qualify for a loan or keep your water turned on.

Among these younger candidates, there is no shyness in fighting for policies that are blatantly Marxist in nature, says Philip Haney, a retired Homeland Security immigration officer.

“I call it obscene hubris. There’s nothing about it that’s constitutional,” Haney said. “It’s contrary, it’s counter-constitutional, and of course it’s anti-American sovereignty. That’s what it’s all about is sovereignty. If you’re going to start giving away our resources to a certain protected class, that is not constitutional. It’s a form of looting. No cops, no borders, just a free for all, inviting the world to come and take whatever you want.”

It’s also like a woman reminding people at a party that her boyfriend can bench press 350 pounds. Islam has a reputation for not being afraid to use violence to advance its agenda.

“By invoking Islam they add an element of fury, because they feel they should have all the world’s wealth already,” Haney said. “And they believe we, America and the Western democracies, prevented them from getting it.”

  2. Reblogged this on On the Patio and commented:
    This is the mentality we have to combat at every turn. If they are Muslim they do NOT have anyone’s best interests at heart. And they are a slave to their teachings. Read and understand what their charter is.


  3. I hope she does not succeed in getting it passed. Keep pushing it year after year is to do that so that people will get used to the thought, like they do with everything else.


  4. So, Leo–what do you make of this incredible, apparently semi-suicidal phenomenon of so many Jews supporting Islamists and open borders? Are they merely THAT amazingly naive, scrambled like the liberal westerners, or what? While his interpretation of facts and history are deeply subjective and vulnerable to challenge, the guy raises a mystifying issue.


    1. I don’t find that any more “mystifying” than the liberal Christians who support the Islamists. Jesus warned us that the world would be filled with “blind guides” and the blind leading the blind. There are plenty of Jews who see what is going on, and plenty who don’t, just like in the Christian world. The commenter has, b/t/w, several outright distortions of fact and unsubstantiated claims. Don’t be fooled. But even if everything he said were true, all it says is that the Islamists are master deceivers. They have succeeded in hoodwinking a good portion of the Christian and Jewish communities, who actually believe that Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance that just wants to coexist with the various other faiths.

    1. America’s Founders felt the same way about Jews. But a little ‘judeo-christian’ propaganda just a few generations in created a nice, large stray flock of the historically illiterate, deeply misled Christians who actually believe Jewish history isn’t AT LEAST as laden with Christian persecution as Muslim history.

      Now we’ve got dozens of dual Israeli citizens in congress alone, never ending wars for “our greatest ally” Israel, over reaching Israeli lobbies like AIPAC, Jewish led and dominated mainstream media, ‘activism’ and ‘hate watch’ groups like the ADL and SPLC incessantly slandering Christians as well as every traditional American value as racist, sexist, bigoted etc while simultaneously praising and encouraging the use of American blood and treasure to protect their DNA-based immigration policy-protected Jewish ethnostate in the Middle East.

      Israel, in turn, plots only more expansionist wars of aggression in the ME in a bid to selfishly restore it’s biblical age borders, genocides and displaces ever more people, including Christians, steals ever more land, and cries about it’s right to exist the entire time, as their ‘most moral army on earth’ is wholesale slaughtering a people who have no control over their own land, sea, air, or borders, have no standing army and are utterly subjugated behind the walls of the world’s largest outdoor prison by Israel, who I remind you is NOT a signatory of any nuclear, chemical or biological weapons conventions, despite their many calls and incitements for war towards their Arab neighbors who do more to cooperate with the international community and OPWC than belligerent Israel EVER has. And, of course, uses their land lord of a ‘god’ (read: Satan) to justify all of it, despite the nation being upwards of 80% ATHEISTIC (read: Godless, Satanic).

      So, obviously, looking at where we are today, no good for Christians (the world over) or America came of letting religious groups historically HOSTILE to Christianity influence a nation founded on overtly Christian values.

      So, how much worse could a Muslim make it than the Jews we are not supposed to notice if we don’t want to be called antisemites already have? The answer, of course, is probably a lot. That’s why Jews themselves overwhelmingly champion the lobby for open borders in the West, and specifically from all the corners of the world where baser instincts and violent, primitive cultures reign supreme. But never for Israel, of course. For America? Jews lobbied for the 1965 immigration act. For Israel? A strict DNA-based immigration policy. “Nationalism for me, but not for thee”. They use the west to preserve and enrich themselves while they work to destroy us from within.

      And now you’re already starting to see it happen again. Calling historically hostile and combative religions ‘peaceful’ and then trying to integrate them into Christianity for the purposes of indoctrination and misleading more Christians into destroying their own civilizations.

      First it was ‘Judeo-Christianity’ and now it’s ‘Chrislam’. In both cases, nothing but an era of ever-worsening Christian and white persecution follows.

      One look at what Israel is doing, incessantly, since it’s inception by land theft with the British military as per the Balfour Declaration of 1917, is all any true, Christ loving Christian needs to see to know that the Synagogue of Satan we were warned about is alive and well today.

      “Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities”

      Condemn me if you will for pointing out that The Holy Bible explicitly warns us that the devil will be wearing a Jewish mask and that so-called ‘Israel’ is an unholy Rothschild terror state borne of, maintained by and plotting nothing more than genocide and suffering in the name of it’s own enrichment. This is just me doing what little I honestly feel that I can to help those of you otherwise good Christian folks absurdly misled into becoming ‘Judeo-Christians’ and burgeoning ‘Chrislamists’ find your way back to the light.

      Surely in your hearts you know that you do not see the hand of Christ in the selfish actions of godless ‘Israel’. With guns and bombs and the blood and treasure of others people, but no messiah. Curious, no?

      If I am wrong then tell me, how would the devil do things differently?

      1. Sir, we are not an anti-Semitic website here, so please take this hate-filled, non-factual commenting elsewhere. No country is perfect, and certainly Israel is no exception, but it is the only Jewish state surrounded by hostile Arab states that wish to annihilate it — not to mention the more than 50 other Muslim states on the planet that would like to see Israel destroyed. I think we can cut them a little slack. I’m willing to forgive the Jews if they are a little “paranoid” after what happened to them during WWII at the hands of the Nazis [in alliance with the Muslim Brotherhood and the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem]. Thank you.

      2. How many people have Muslims beheaded just because they were not Muslim? How many have Jews beheaded just because hey were not Jewish?


  5. I sure hope Christians and Conservatives start shouting as loudly and fighting as hard as the unsaved and liberals because as the word says,”you shall know the truth and it will set you free” The liberal media and politicians who spread half or untruths are loud and we need to fight back as hard as they do to preserve our republic. (and pray)

    1. Amen! We, as believers, should stand up and fight, like Mark Taylor says. Check him out on YouTube and his site. Can’t remember the name, but you can google him to find his site.
