Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) faced backlash after condemning Hamas for its actions in the October 7 terrorist attack on Israel, specifically addressing the rape of Israeli women.
She revealed that she was doxxed and attacked by Palestinian men for her stance.
Dingell emphasized her condemnation of the violence against women and expressed her determination to address the issue. (Trending: Tucker Reveals The Moment He Became A Full-Blown Trump Supporter)
“The very first week of this [Hamas] attack, I condemned the raping of women and said that no one could condone it, and Palestinian men went after me — called me a liar, demanded I retracted it, said Dingell.
“I got doxxed over the subject,” she recalled.
“I have spent the last seven weeks researching the raping of women that has occurred in the Mideast,” continued the lawmaker.
Adding, “It is outrageous. I condemn it.”
“All it did was make me angrier,” she said. “This is going to be an issue I am seriously going to take on,” said the Michigan Democrat.
“Rape is a tool of war. It is violence that should be exercised against no woman — any woman: a Jewish woman, an Arab woman, a white woman, a black woman, and I unequivocally stand against it,” Dingell added.
She also mentioned reaching out to her colleague, Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), after Jayapal’s refusal to solely condemn Hamas.
“I’m going to talk to Pramila. I have a call into her,” Dingell said.
“I’m going to just speak for myself on this subject, and I’m raw on this subject because of the hate that I have had directed at me for speaking the truth. I will speak the truth, and I don’t care who it is,” promised Dingell.
“But rape is an act of violence and it becomes too often a tool in any act of war, and as women everywhere, we must stand up for women everywhere,” she demanded.
Dingell, along with her colleagues, called for a ceasefire while condemning violence from both sides.
