In A Now Deleted Tweet, Tlaib Blames “White Supremacy” For NJ Shooting


1 views

Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib made a huge “oopsie” earlier today on Twitter in attributing an attack by 2 black shooters on a Kosher deli to “white supremacy.”

The tragic shooting which happened in New Jersey on Tuesday resulted in 6 deaths, including 3 civilians, a police office, and the two assailants.

The gunmen belonged to the radical Black Hebrew Israelites – a cult group that believes black people are the real descendants of Israel.

A manifesto was discovered in the suspects’ car, and at least one of the suspects had also written anti-Semitic posts online.

It’s unclear whether or not Tlaib knew these details of the story when retweeting a post about one of the victims of the New Jersey shooting, 24-year old Jewish man Moshe Deutsch.

Regardless, her tweet commenting on the news as “heartbreaking. White supremacy kills,” drew criticism for its glaring inaccuracy before Tlaib quickly deleted it.
