Muslim Democrat promising lots of gov't 'freebies'

crescent and starNational security analyst and terrorism expert Brigitte Gabriel is concerned that a radical Muslim may be elected to Congress from Michigan.

Next month, Democrats in Michigan's 13th Congressional District – which includes a large chunk of Detroit – will vote in a primary to decide who will likely be the heir to longtime Congressman John Conyers, who had to resign in disgrace amid multiple sexual harassment charges. That congressional seat is considered "safe" for Democrats.

One of the Democrats in the 13th Congressional District primary is Rashida Tlaib, who is already the first Muslim woman elected to the Michigan Legislature. She wants to become the first Muslim elected to Congress from Michigan. Tlaib also wants to create special rights for Muslims and other minorities by expanding the Civil Rights Act of 1964 in a way that would shield "communities of color" from a whole host of negative outcomes, including racial profiling by police, utility shutoffs for delinquent bill-payers, and the denial of a bank loan based on a bad credit score.

Brigitte Gabriel, founder and president of ACT for America, describes Tlaib as "a radical lefty" – and that's why she's concerned.

"She's on the left of the left. And she is promising anything – all the freebies," Gabriel tells OneNewsNow. "[She's telling her supporters] if you cannot qualify to buy a house, if you have a bad credit rating, it will be discrimination – and if they don't give it you, you're going to be able to sue them. We will basically have anarchy."

Gabriel suggests that Tlaib has been emboldened following the upset congressional primary win by a far-left Democratic Socialist in New York. Those endorsing Tlaib's candidacy include: the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Greater Detroit Democratic Socialists of America, Empowering Engaged Muslims, VoteProChoice, People for Bernie, People for the American Way, and filmmaker Michael Moore.

Since leaving the state legislature due to term limits, Tlaib has worked as an attorney and advocate for a Detroit-based nonprofit legal group that focuses on economic and social justice.
