Journalist Presses Assault Charges Against Muslim Congressional Candidate

On Wednesday, I pressed charges against Democratic Congressional candidate Rashida Tlaib for assault.

While reporting at a public political event for U.S. Congressional candidate Ilhan Omar in Minnesota on Saturday, I was assaulted by Rashida Tlaib, the soon-to-be first Muslim U.S. congresswoman.

Rashida Tlaib, a Palestinian Muslim who won her primary in Michigan’s 13th Congressional District on August 7, violently grabbed my cell phone, and attempted to steal it. When I tried to take my phone back, Tlaib aggressively shoved me into the surrounding crowd of her Muslim supporters, simply because I asked her a question.

What question did I ask Tlaib? I asked her whether or not she, as a Palestinian Muslim Congresswoman would recognize Hamas as a terrorist organization similarly to the U.S. government. When she refused to answer my question, I asked her whether or not she would condemn Hamas, a designated terrorist organization that focuses on killing innocent Jews on the Gaza border and in Israel. She also refused to answer that question.
