‘Somebody’s Got To Stop It’: Thomas Massie Defends Vote To Kill Tlaib Censure

U.S. Rep Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, and Cori Bush speak at the Mississippi River in Minneapolis asking for President Biden to stop Line 3 pipeline construction.

Republican Rep. Thomas Massie of Kentucky defended his vote to table a resolution condemning Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan Thursday.

Massie was one of 22 Republicans who voted Wednesday to table a resolution by Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia that would have censured Tlaib for antisemitic comments and a raucous Oct. 18 protest. Tlaib and other left-wing members of the House of Representatives known as “The Squad” released statements calling for a ceasefire almost immediately after Israel began its response to the Oct. 7 terrorist attacks by Hamas.


“Free speech isn’t just about protecting the speech that you like, it’s especially about protecting the speech you don’t like,” Massie told “Jesse Watters Primetime guest host Rachel Campos-Duffy. “I think the protest was an expression of speech. Now, the other reason that I voted against this resolution, the language was modelled after a resolution that I voted against two years ago that calls the January 6th protesters insurrectionists. It’s wrong to call the January 6th protesters insurrectionists and I think it’s wrong to call the people that were with Rashida Tlaib insurrectionists. So, those were my two reasons for voting against it.”

Campos-Duffy pressed Massie over his concerns about the resolution, citing the FBI’s seizure of Republican Rep. Scott Perry of Pennsylvania’s cell phone and a perceived double standard in the treatment the pro-Palestine protesters received compared to some of those charged in connection with the Jan. 6, 2021 riot at the Capitol building.

“I wish it had been worded differently. They came after her, to your point, Rachel, they came after Marjorie with resolutions and kicked her off her committees,” Massie said. “It’s definitely within her prerogative to do this. Somebody’s got to stop it though. We’ve got to get back to normal.”

“I know there are people who would like us to do kung fu fighting on the floor of the House of Representatives,” Massie added. “We may not be far from it. I would like to take the tone down just a little bit so we can solve some of America’s problems.”

  2. The Gateway Pundit reports, “Congresswoman Tlaib recently gave a speech to CAIR a terrorist linked radical anti american organization.
    She was introduced by the Florida Chapter Executive Director,

    Florida chapter, Hassan Shibly — Shibly invoked the Islamic war cry as he introduced her.”

    “Allahu Akbar! (الله أكبر), The first Palestinian-American Muslim Congresswoman, our dear sister Rashida Tlaib!” Hassan Shibly stated.
    As she made her way up onto the stage to give her speech, Congresswoman Tlaib did something shocking. She leaned to the microphone and stated, “Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim!” Translated, this literally means, “In the name of Allah, the merciful, the compassionate.” This is the very phrase that “begins every chapter in the Quran except one and is seen as a Muslim War cry. In fact, this is the very same phrase Bowe Bergdahl’s father said in front of the White House in 2014 after Obama traded Taliban terrorists in exchange for traitor Bergdahl.”
    Then, the Democratic Congresswoman declared victory over the United States.“‘We always said ‘the Muslims are coming’… I think we’re here!” Tlaib exclaimed as the audience cheered. “We’re not only everywhere in all kinds of different governments but, mashallah, we’re in the United States Congress,” she continued. Remember it is “they” who chant: Allahu Akbar! (الله أكبر), Death to Infidels. Wake up World we are the Infidels!
