GOP Congressman Tim Walberg can be heard appearing to suggest bombs should be dropped on Gaza “like Nagasaki and Hiroshima”! The Council on American-Islamic Relations, a Muslim civil rights group, condemned Walberg’s comments as a “clear call to genocide”. Walberg also opposes humanitarian aid to Ukraine in the Russo-Ukrainian War.

WASHINGTON DC APRIL 1: In a video posted online by a person affiliated with a Democratic advocacy group, Republican Rep. Tim Walberg can be heard, but not seen, appearing to suggest bombs should be dropped on Gaza “like Nagasaki and Hiroshima” to “get it over quick.” Walberg insists he was speaking metaphorically when he made the WWII-era reference to US atomic strikes against Japan.

Timothy Lee Walberg (born 1951) is an American politician serving as the U.S. representative from Michigan’s 5th congressional district since 2023. A member of the Republican Party, he previously represented the 7th district from 2007 to 2009 and from 2011 to 2023.

In March 2024, responding to a question about “why are we spending our money to build a port for them,” referring to the Biden Administration’s plan to build a temporary port off the coast of Gaza to facilitate delivery of humanitarian aid in the Israel-Hamas War, Walberg told the crowd the U.S. “shouldn’t be spending a dime on humanitarian aid” and instead “should be like Nagasaki and Hiroshima. Get it over quick.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations, a U.S.-based Muslim civil rights group, condemned Walberg’s comments as a “clear call to genocide”.

Walberg also opposes humanitarian aid to Ukraine in the Russo-Ukrainian War.
