In a floor speech earlier on Tuesday, Tlaib argued that Republicans were trying to censor her and dehumanized Palestinians, while fellow Democrats argued that she has a right to free speech.

“It’s a shame my colleagues are more focused on silencing me than they are on saving lives, as the death toll in Gaza surpasses 10,000,” wrote Tlaib in a statement “Many of them have shown me that Palestinian lives simply do not matter to them, but I still do not police their rhetoric or actions.”

But it’s not genocide when **** do it…and Biden supports it.

They censured her for speaking the truth, so far as I can see.
