Before the first day of her tenure as a newly-minted US Congresswoman, Rashida Tlaib started a ball rolling that I think has the potential for becoming a wrecking ball for at least her, if not for the Democrat party as a whole.
She started her day off by being sworn in on a copy of the Quran once the property of Thomas Jefferson, then at her welcome-aboard reception she revealed what I believe is central to the thoughts of the hard-core Democrats with the profane declaration she made concerning her desire to impeach President Trump.
This from Fox News:
Within hours of being sworn into the 116th Congress, newly elected Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., already is facing backlash for her comments on the job – after a profanity-laced pledge to pursue President Trump’s impeachment.
Appearing at a reception in Washington, D.C., hosted by liberal group MoveOn, Tlaib wrapped up her remarks by recalling a conversation she had with her son.
“When your son looks at you and says, ‘Momma, look! You won! Bullies don’t win,’ and I said, ‘Baby, they don’t.’ Because we’re gonna go in there, we’re gonna impeach the motherf—-r,” Tlaib told the crowd, which roared with approval.
Tlaib didn’t exactly get the warmest reception on social media.
Congrats on this, Democrats. https://t.co/7bQfm4Kstl

Why does one get the sense that some of these folks are going to scare off moderates/independents with this kind of rhetoric out of the gate… https://t.co/Ziml3zqzdo

In 5 years on Twitter I have avoided (re-)posting anything with foul language.
Now I break that rule because of @RashidaTlaib.
THIS is the face of the Democrats.

Newly elected Democratic Congresswoman @RashidaTlaib to supporters earlier tonight: “We’re going to go in there, we’re gonna impeach the motherf****r.”

I’m excited for all the upcoming “Trump coarsens the discourse” lectures from lunatic Democrats like this one https://t.co/bYTAQppanC

In an op-ed published in the Detroit Free Press earlier in the day, Tlaib declared that it’s “time to begin impeachment proceedings,” accusing Trump of being a “direct and serious threat to our country.”
“Whether the president was directly involved in a conspiracy with the Russian government to interfere with the 2016 election remains the subject of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. But we do not need to wait on the outcome of that criminal investigation before moving forward now with an inquiry in the U.S. House of Representatives on whether the president has committed impeachable ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ against the state: abuse of power and abuse of the public trust,” Tlaib co-wrote with attorney John Bonifaz.

In one way I’m glad Congresswoman Tlaib put her cards on the table so pointedly. She let everyone know right away that she is firmly in the hate-Trump camp (although I think there was no question about that prior to her election) and that by speaking out as she has, she will be encouraging fellow radical Democrats to come out of the closet.
My instinct (whether it’s worth much or not, I really don’t know) is that this will backfire on her. I can’t say how at this point, but considering that even fellow Democrats are starting to rear their heads and object to her tactics should be an indicator of the folly of her words.
