Congressional Republicans are demanding Minnesota Jew-hating representative Ilhan Omar be removed from the House Foreign Affairs Committee in light of her recent, frequent antisemitic remarks.
House Minority Whip Steve Scalise said Tuesday that Speaker Nancy Pelosi should strip Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar of her seat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, in an interview with Fox News. Omar has been accused recently of pushing anti-Semitic tropes.
House Democratic leaders plan on bringing a resolution condemning anti-Semitism to the floor Wednesday presumably because of the backlash Omar has faced. The text of the resolution reportedly does not mention her by name.
In a completely unrelated story, Somali gangs are waging war in Minneapolis. Seriously, what the hell happened to Minnesota?
Omar has received backlash for several comments related to Israel. She recently shared her sentiments regarding the Israel-Palestine conflict and the “dual loyalty” she feels like members of Congress have to Israel over the weekend. Many of her colleagues, including some on the Foreign Affairs Committee with her, have condemned her statements.
As of yesterday evening, the House Democrats’ resolution has been put on hold. The Congressional Black Caucus and the Congressional Progressive Caucus are demanding a delay.
Interesting how those who call their political opponents Nazis cannot agree to decry antisemitism.
