Zionist Bakari Sellers is aiming to remove from Congress

  • CNN commentator Bakari Sellers is aiming to remove from Congress its one Palestinian American representative.
    The longtime Zionist supporter is backing a new political action committee that is pouring money into a primary challenge against Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib of Michigan.

    Urban Empowerment Action PAC says it will spend “upwards of $1,000,000 on TV, digital, mail, radio and print advertising to support Detroit City Clerk Janice Winfrey.”

    Winfrey is running against Tlaib in primary elections scheduled for August.

    The winner will be the Democratic Party’s nominee in the US general election in November when voters will choose a new House of Representatives. Because the southeast Michigan district at play votes heavily Democratic, whoever wins the August primary is almost guaranteed to go to Congress.

    Winfrey has told the pro-Israel publication Jewish Insider that she is running because she feels the district “is not being represented.”

    She cites Tlaib’s vote against the Biden administration’s infrastructure bill last year. The legislation passed, but Tlaib and some other dissenting Democrats maintain Biden’s plans did not go far enough.

    But while professing concern about local and domestic issues, Winfrey is vocal that her support for Israel – and her false claims that its critics are motivated by hatred of Jews – is a key motivator for her effort to unseat Tlaib.

    “I don’t care what your dislike is with the Jewish people, you don’t just wipe out a whole country, a whole group of people — that’s never the answer,” Winfrey told Jewish Insider in April.

    “As an African American woman, it angers me to my soul that you hate another group of people just because they are,” she added. “It grieves my soul and I will work against it, and I have always worked against it all my life.”
