CNN Host Goes Rogue, Calls Out Rashida Tlaib on National Television

CNN host John King deviated from the left-wing narrative on Monday by calling out Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s false claims about the Holocaust.

“There’s always kind of a calming feeling, I tell folks, when I think of the Holocaust, and the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the fact that it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways, have been wiped out,” Tlaib said Friday on the Yahoo! News “Skullduggery” podcast.

“And, just all of it was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews, post-the Holocaust, post-the tragedy and the horrific persecution of Jews across the world at that time,” she claimed.

“And, I love the fact that it was my ancestors that provided that, right, in many ways, but they did it in a way that took their human dignity away and it was forced on them.”

As King pointed out, Tlaib ignored the fact that Palestinian leaders allied with Adolf Hitler and reacted to the declaration of Israeli independence with war.

Instead of trying to “create a safe haven for Jews,” the Palestinians and other Arab countries went to war with Israel.

“Yes, as [Tlaib] said, Palestinians lost land in the creation of Israel, but she ignored the fact that Palestinian leaders at the time allied themselves with Hitler,” said King. “And the total war is how the Arab world reacted to the declaration of Israeli independence.”

King turned to Aaron David Miller, CNN’s Global Affairs analyst, and added, “She can’t rewrite that history, and you can’t project revisionist history, so why?”

Miller explained that Tlaib “has her history wrong” about a couple of points.

“Number one, it’s an arguable proposition even had there been no Holocaust. Most of the institutions of the current state of Israel were in place before Hitler started killing Jews,” Miller explained. “So, the Holocaust added urgency and international support, but I suspect with or without it, the state of Israel would have come into being.”

The CNN analyst also addressed Tlaib’s false claim that Palestinians helped create a safe haven for Jews.

“On this notion that Palestinians either negatively or positively helped to create a safe haven for Jews. The reality is that the Arabs in Palestine, Haj Amin al-Husseini, the grand mufti, in Nazi Germany, collaborating and cooperating with the Nazis about what would happen if Rommel’s Korps actually had been successful in Egypt and been present in Palestine,” Miller said.

“They were considering extermination of the entire Jewish community there as well,” the CNN analyst added.

Tlaib’s comments went too far because even CNN admits that her comments were falsehoods, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi didn’t get the memo — she defended Tlaib’s Holocaust revisionist history via Twitter.

But Republicans, including President Donald Trump, have ripped Tlaib’s comments as anti-Semitic and offensive to Jews.

“Democrat Rep. Tlaib is being slammed for her horrible and highly insensitive statement on the Holocaust. She obviously has tremendous hatred of Israel and the Jewish people. Can you imagine what would happen if I ever said what she said, and says?” Trump tweeted Monday.

Trump and Republicans were right to call out Tlaib, whose anti-Semitic comments were flat-out wrong — and there is no way for Democrats to spin this.

CNN criticized Tlaib. Now it’s the Democrats’ turn.

      But will he stay at CNN given its history of anti-Israel rhetoric over the years? I can see Christine’ Amanpour or Ben Wideman busting a gut! John, come to FOX, your feelings for Israel will be protected.

    With everything that Tlaib says, shows that she is nothing but a Palestinian and Islamic supremist.

    Thank you at last a CNN presenter speaking truth! Firstly, God gave the promised land to Israel over 2000 years ago. They lost it during History but regained their land in the 6 day war. In 1948 most Arabs living in Israel were told to get out as the surrounding Arab nations were going to annihilate Israel Some refused to leave, and Israel was never wiped out because God always has Israel back. When those Arabs tried to get out, they were denied entry to other Arab Nations.Arabia which surrounds Israel is huge, just look at a map of the region, compared with tiny Israel, and God held to his promise that the Jewish people made the land productive and fertile. Not only the land, but Jewish technology and engineering skills harnessed the water in the Jordan River to create Electricity. The Arabs would have remained in the dark if it wasn’t for Jewish Engineers Technology. Thanks to Israel, you have the inner working of Cell Phones, Chemo therapy and advance Cancer Technology today, Cherry Tomatoes, Hydroponics, Agriculture, Rocket detectors and so much more. Their are more Pulitzer Prize winners and Nobel Peace Prizes in Israel than any where else, Medicine, Engineering, Science, Harvesting Sea water as in Singapore. And what is not well known is that Israel have a policy of assisting in Disaster around the World, (Children stuck in a cave in China, Earthquake Disaster etc. Europe lost a lot of brains thanks to Hitler and his pal The Mufti!
