Rep. Rashida Tlaib Implies Mark Meadows Is A 'Racist,' Backtracks After Being Confronted

The cowardliness displayed Wednesday by Rashida Tlaib accusing Mark Meadows of being a "racist" only to backtrack immediately after being put on the spot is truly something to behold.

From Zero Hedge:
Michigan Rep. Rashida "Impeach the Motherf**ker" Tlaib caused quite a stir when she implied that Freedom Caucus leader Mark Meadows was guilty of racism for "parading" a black Trump administration employee in front of the committee as a "prop".

During a question about Trump's history of racist remarks that was really more of a statement directed at her colleagues in the House, Tlaib alleged that Meadows decision to invite Lynne Patton, head of region II of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, to appear in front of the committee was "racist in itself."

"Just to make a note Mr. Chairman, just because someone has a person of color, a black person, working for them, doesn’t mean they’re not racist. It is insensitive, the fact that someone would actually use a prop a black woman in this chamber in this committee is alone racist in itself."
Note: describing Lynne Patton, a Trump aide and official at HUD who wanted to speak in support of Trump as a "prop" because she's black is A-OK and totally not "racist."
Meadows was understandably less than pleased with his colleagues' assertion, and tried to interrupt her to ask that Chairman Elijah Cummings strip the remarks from the record and chide Tlaib for violating House etiquette. Instead, he attempted to play the mediator, calmly allowing Tlaib to explain how she didn't intend to offend Meadows (of course, she was simply speaking her truth as a person of color).

Cummings then went on to remind the committee that he and Meadows are actually "Best Friends" despite their sometimes antagonistic demeanor in public, and backed up Meadows assertions that he is not, in fact, a racist.
This is the future of the Democratic Party. You can guarantee Cummings is going to get nothing but s**t for daring to speak (timidly) in Meadow's defense and pulling the rug out from under her.

In fact, I just searched Twitter and this tweet from Rolling Stone writer Jamil Smith was the first result:

And here's two of the top responses:

This is the new standard for "racism" as it is currently being used by the left: if you're white, having black friends and saying you have black friends is "racist," having non-white family members and saying you have non-white family members is "racist" and bringing a black woman to a congressional hearing to speak on the topic of racism is "racist."

In short, because you're white you're inherently racist -- and saying that is not racist because you can't be racist to white people!
