Tlaib, the “Squad” member: Turn Down Biden in Michigan Primary

In the forthcoming Democratic primary, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, a member of the Progressive “Squad” from Michigan, is pleading with voters to reject President Joe Biden.

In a video shot outside of an early polling site in Dearborn, Michigan, on February 17, Tlaib stated, “Right now, we feel completely neglected and just unseen by our government.” “If you want us to be louder, then come here and vote uncommitted.”

Tlaib was the lone member of Congress to vote against a resolution on February 14 that denounced Hamas for attacking Israel on October 7.

She asked voters in her most recent video message to “support life” and “stand up for every single life killed in Gaza.”

“It is important, as you all know, to not only march against the genocide, not only make sure that we’re calling our members of Congress and local electeds,” she stated.

Establishing a voting bloc that acts as a voice for “enough is enough” is equally crucial. A nation that encourages bombs, conflict, and devastation is not what we desire.”

“We feel completely neglected by our government,” she stated.

“Remember all of the incredible young children and people that lost their lives in Gaza. You may elevate our voices in this way. “Avoid making us even less noticeable,” she continued.

Tlaib is the most well-known Democrat to support the “Listen to Michigan” campaign, which seeks to garner 10,000 “uncommitted” votes. Biden’s relationship with progressives is still strained due to his handling of the Gaza war.

In a November video, she declared, “We will remember in 2024,” accusing Biden of encouraging “genocide” in Gaza.

According to Stevie O’Hanlon, a spokesman for the youth organization Sunrise Movement, which is concerned about climate change, “a lot of people in our base are feeling really hesitant about supporting Joe Biden,” as reported by Newsweek.

“Joe Biden needs the young generation in order to win and that is going to require him doing a lot on climate, on Gaza, on immigration, to try and regain trust that’s been broken.”
