Like Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib is a fellow DSA member.

Tlaib won a crowded primary in a minority-majority district on publicly endorsing plans to abolish ICE and fighting for single-payer health care among other socialist goodies.

Prior to winning her election, Tlaib wrote an op-ed for Louis Farrakhan's website.

Since then, more accusations of anti-Semitism have dogged the Michigan lawmaker. 

At her swearing-in ceremony, Tlaib took a photo with a Hezbollah supporter.

For a time, the congresswoman inexplicably followed an Instagram account that routinely posted anti-Semitic tropes, minimized the Holocaust, and spread 9/11 conspiracy theories.

Tlaib has deflected legitimate criticism of her by conflating those who are critical with racists and those threatening harm.
