ACTION ALERT: Oppose the Censure Resolution Against Rep. Rashida Tlaib!

Washington, D.C. | September 27, 2023 – The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) vehemently condemns the censure resolution against Representative Rashida Tlaib, viewing it as an act motivated by deep-seated anti-Palestinian prejudices and a continuation of McCarthy-like tactics. It is alarming to witness such a targeted and systemic attempt to silence Palestinian voices across the United States. Not since the dark days of McCarthy’s witch hunts has our nation seen such an aggressive assault on individuals for expressing their conscience.

ACTION ALERT: Email Your Representatives NOW and  Tell Them to Oppose the Censure Resolution Against Rep. Rashida Tlaib!

The wave of hostility and efforts to curtail freedom of expression, akin to the current censure of Representative Tlaib, demonstrates nothing but hatred. It is disheartening that members of the Democratic Party, including President Biden, have fostered and contributed to this environment of dehumanization, selective empathy, and prejudice.

America is currently in the grip of an unsettling surge of violence and censorship, the sole intent of which seems to be to suppress any form of dissent from the prevailing pro-war narrative. However, we wish to make it abundantly clear that we will neither be intimidated nor pushed back. We are here to stay, firmly rooted in our commitment to the principles of justice, freedom, and the rights enshrined in the U.S. Constitution. We will continue to raise our voices, advocate for justice, and stand against any form of oppression and prejudice.

“We are witnessing an unprecedented attack on our democratic values,” says Abed Ayoub, Executive Director of the ADC. “Representative Tlaib’s censure is emblematic of the larger trend to silence marginalized voices. Now, more than ever, it is crucial for Americans of all backgrounds to unite and stand against these divisive tactics. We will not be silenced, and our fight for justice and equality continues.”
