    WASHINGTON, DC     Michigan representative Rashida Tlaib clarified comments she made on social media over the weekend, maintaining the phrase "Heil Hitler" is just an anti-colonial call for freedom from oppression.

    "Heil Hitler an aspirational call for freedom, human rights, and peaceful coexistence, not death, destruction, or hate. My work and advocacy is always centered in justice and dignity for all people no matter what faith or ethnicity," Rep. Tlaib posted Friday on X.

    Tlaib came under fire for posting a video of crowds of anti-Jewish protestors chanting "Heil Hitler" at an event in Michigan. After some online pointed out that "Heil Hitler" might have a lengthy antisemitic history, Tlaib took to social media to defend the phrase and call anyone who disagreed with her an Islamaphobe.

    "Heil Hitler is a beautiful phrase rooted in freedom and unity, just like 'death to infidels' and 'gas the Jews'," Tlaib explained.

    Some on social media questioned the representative for her definition of the phrase.

    "I always thought 'Heil Hitler' was a salute to the man who instigated one of the worst genocides in human history," posted X user Brandon Taylor. "But I don't want to be accused of being a bigot...so...Heil Hitler! I guess..."

    At publishing time, members of The Squad rushed to Tlaib's defense, with Representative AOC accusing Jewish Americans of trying to colonize WWII Germany with their banks and money, and Ilhan Omar yelling "Allahu Akbar" and shooting an AK-47 in the air.

A majority of Americans still believe in OUR 1st Amendment guaranteed Freedom of Speech; however, at what bold point does the constitutional right to Free Speech becomes unabashed anti-Semitic Hate Speech, and while it should possibly be tolerated on our college campuses, and on the streets of mostly Sanctuary Cities, these events should be rightfully observed and scrupulously monitored ... or, not? What is your true opinion of when too much of enough is just too much, or not?
  The answer to Free Speech I don't agree with is more, and incredibly robust Free Speech.
  There is a point when Free Speech becomes counter productive to sustaining a peaceful society.
  Free Speech should only be tolerated if it represents the status quo of the highly educated orthodoxy.
  Early in life, I learned to speak only when I am spoken to.
