Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib Gets a "Calming Feeling" from Thinking about the Holocaust; Washington Post Defends Her

Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, who has made clear that she is a Muslim Arab and that she represents Muslim Arabs, though she ostensibly serves in the US Congress, stated publicly that thinking about the Holocaust gives her a "calming feeling." You can hear the audio here

The Washington Post, which recently, in the person of German-born Rick Noack, blamed Poles, Poland, and the Catholic Church for the Holocaust (see here) ran defense for Tlaib, see here.

Evidence of a double standard as to who gets criticized and why.
