World Tribune: Rep. Rashida Tlaib Was Paid by Soros and Failed to Disclose It and the Washington Free Beacon both reported this week that the anti-semitic member of Congress, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, failed to disclose that she was paid $85,000 by a George Soros front group for a “Leadership in Government Fellowship.”

Tlaib disclosed other sources of income, raising suspicions that she intentionally attempted to conceal her ties to the controversial tycoon who has spent a fortune promoting Leftist causes and attacking conservatives.

This revelation is significant for two primary reasons:

  1. It shows the continued insidious influence of the Soros syndicate of NGOs on Left-wing politics in America.

Over the past decade or so, Soros funded front groups have built up a disproportionate amount of influence with Leftist policy groups, Left-wing politicians and Leftist journalists, simply by throwing money at them. It’s clear from the revelations about Tlaib that the process of influencing politicians starts very early, before they even enter office or win an election.

Soros’ influence has forced Democrat leaders to radically change their positions on issues, particularly the most prominent issue currently in the news, namely border security and illegal immigration. There was a time not so long ago that Democrat leaders supported reasonable immigration laws and border security.

  1. Rashida Tlaib is bigoted against Jews.

 Since being elected, Rep. Tlaib has provided ample evidence that she is bigoted toward Jews, such as promoting conspiracy theories about the influence of Jews on policies and questioning the loyalty of Jewish Americans.

She also has a map displayed in her office on which Israel has been replaced with a post-it note labeled “Palestine.”

These activities are characteristic with a creeping and growing anti-semitism on the Left in America, particularly featuring slanderous verbal attacks on the Jewish state of Israel.

The irony here is that George Soros, a Jew himself, has recently resorted to accusing his critics of being anti-semitic. One wonders whether Soros would consider Tlaib anti-semitic and if he regrets paying her $85,000 in 2017.
