(Liberty Bell) – One of the most controversial and radical members of Congress, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) is bragging that her far-left Congressional “Squad” is “only getting bigger” and “here to stay” after securing her primary election in Detroit, Michigan on Wednesday.
“Let it be known that in the 13th District, just like in communities across our country, we are done with establishment politics that put corporations first,” Tlaib bragged as she announced her victory.
“If I was considered the most vulnerable member of the Squad, I think it’s safe to say the Squad is here to stay, and it’s only getting bigger.”
Tlaib is one part of the notorious clique, which includes Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortex (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-NY), and Ayanna Presley (D-MA).
Tlaib beat out Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones in the 13th District primary.
On Wednesday morning, she was declared the winner. With 90 percent of precincts reporting, Tlaib led Jones 66 percent to 34 percent, according to the Wayne County Clerk’s Office.
Along with her bragging remarks, Tlaib also posted a video to Facebook telling her followers that the voters want an “unapologetic fighter.”
“Voters sent a clear message that they’re done waiting for transformative change, that they want an unapologetic fighter who will take on the status quo and win,” Tlaib said. “We have a resounding mandate to put people before profits.”
This is just the latest skirmish in the Democrats’ internal civil war for the future of their party.
While the “moderate” Democrat seems virtually extinct, those who remain are either being forced to join the radical, intersectional, and Marxist politics of Tlaib and her “Squad” or they’re getting booted out of office.
Centrists in the party simply can’t compete with the Squad’s Soros millions or mainstream media obsession.
Breitbart News notes:
With Tlaib’s latest statement, it seems as though the group could soon welcome new faces as many progressive upstarts oust longtime Democrat members of Congress.
Cori Bush, a progressive, defeated Democrat Rep. William Lacy Clay on Tuesday in Missouri’s Democratic primary. Former middle school principal Jamaal Bowman was also victorious over incumbent Democrat Rep. Eliot Engel from the Bronx. Marie Newman, another progressive on the Left, ousted incumbent Illinois Rep. Dan Lipinski in the primary election earlier this year.
