Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), a known antisemitic bigot, believes face masks only need to be worn if there are people around who would catch you not wearing one, according to comments she made that were caught on video during a community event in Detroit.
An unapologetic member of the Progressive group known as the “Squad” in the House of Representatives, Tlaib told people attending the event that she only wore a mask because an alleged “Republican tracker” was filming her.
On Monday, Tlaib did an event with Marcia Fudge, Housing and Urban Development (HUD) secretary, and afterward she was talking with one of the attendees who was maskless. The guy thought the Jew-hating bigot reprimanded him for not wearing a mask.
“Oh, no, oh, not you!” Tlaib said while pulling her mask from her face. “No, no, no—I’m just wearing it because I’ve got a Republican tracker here.”
Only weeks prior to the event, Tlaib caught some flack for getting caught dancing maskless at an indoor wedding in Dearborn. The room was crowded and there’s the progressive Squad member moving around without a mask on and no social distancing. Defenders would say, come on, it’s a wedding,” while many of us would say, come on, it’s our everyday lives.
So, a video emerged on the same day Tlaib slammed Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) for urging his followers to “resist” Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) masking guidelines. After the CDC made a recommendation to wear masks indoors, no matter what your vaccination status was in local areas with high transmission, which applied to Dearborn at the time.
Tlaib isn’t the only virtue-signaling Democrat hypocrite who ignores her own nonsense on wearing masks. Another Squad member Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), outside of Hank Johnson (D-GA) is the dumbest member of Congress, put on a mask for a photo op in August with leftist activists and took it right off the second the photo moment was over.
Not long before that, Virginia Democrat gubernatorial nominee Terry McAuliffe (D) refused to wear a mask while riding on an Amtrak train, violating federal regulations. But not to worry, because the Clintonista tyrant has promised that if elected he will continue the state’s mask mandate in schools and told voters to “follow the CDC guidelines.” This is the same man who, as governor in 2016, pardoned 60,000 felons so that they could vote for Hillary Clinton and it was reported to be enough to change the Virginia election.
In July, President Joe Biden told “all Americans who live in the areas covered by the CDC guidance” to wear a mask. Secretary Fudge tweeted the same sentiment.

HUD’s website explains that public housing inspectors “follow safety protocols informed by the CDC, which includes wearing proper protection and following other related safety measures.”
Fudge is not featured in the video, but she would not be the first Biden administration official who has condoned violations of mask requirements.
Samantha Power, who runs the US Agency for International Development, traveled on an Amtrak train without wearing a mask in September. Can you imagine if she was a Republican?
Tlaib may just be following the example of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who was caught multiple times not wearing a mask.
There was the famous incident where Pelosi got caught on camera at her hair salon, not wearing a mask.

When the controversy erupted, Pelosi did what all great Democrat leaders do; she blamed it on the salon owner and claimed it was a setup.
Then there was the time a day after the Capitol Police made an order that face masks must be worn “at all times” on the House side of the Capitol complex, Pelosi was spotted not wearing a face mask on two occasions. Once when she posed for a photo with Representative Jake Ellzey (R-TX) at his swearing in ceremony,actually reenacting his swearing in, and she took off her mask.

For Democrats, it’s all about control. When you see that mask on someone’s face, you are reminded that the government is forcing you to do it.
