Several House Republicans are making moves to strip far-left Democrat Ilhan Omar of her committee assignments. The move comes after Democrats announced they will try and have Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene removed from her committee assignments as well.
The Daily Wire reports:
“The House is set to consider a measure this week that calls for Taylor Greene, a controversial first-term lawmaker known for his support of the QAnon conspiracy theory, from her assignment on the Education and Labor Committee,” Fox News reported. “A proposed GOP-backed amendment to that measure calls for Omar, frequently identified as a member of the ‘Squad’ of progressive Democrats, to be removed from her committee assignments.”
Omar has an extensive history in trafficking in anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and tropes, including her claim that “Israel has hypnotized the world.”
Then-New York Times Columnist Bari Weiss noted that Omar’s anti-Semitic remark was similar to what was promoted in Nazi Germany.
Omar has spoken out against sanctions being used against nations like socialist Venezuela and the Islamic Republic of Iran, but reportedly has different views when it comes to sanctioning Israel.
Since being elected to Congress scandal has followed Rep. Omar at every turn. Other Democrats have distanced themselves from the “Squad” member, some even hinting that her policy ideas cost Democrats seats across the country.
