House Republicans voted on Thursday to remove Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) from the Foreign Affairs Committee, notching a win for Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), who has long vowed to oust the Minnesota Democrat from the panel.
The chamber approved the resolution in a party-line 218-211 vote.
McCarthy had vowed to oust Omar from the panel since 2021 as a rebuke for what he says are antisemitic comments, some of which she later apologized for. He also pledged to block Democratic Reps. Adam Schiff (Calif.) and Eric Swalwell (Calif.) from serving on the House Intelligence Committee, which he succeeded in accomplishing last week.
Omar issued a statement apologizing for the remark, and the House passed a resolution condemning antisemitism and other forms of hate shortly after she apologized. However, she again showed her antisemitism when she compared Israel and the United States to the Taliban and Hamas terrorist group while discussing war crimes. She, of course, defended her remarks.
Some from both parties accuse the move made by McCarthy as a political revenge move, but I doubt it. And, of course, members of ‘the squad’ had to give their remarks which amounted to no more than a clown show.
Rep. Max Miller (R-Ohio), who is Jewish — lists a number of remarks Omar has made in the past that Republicans say are antisemitic. It argues that the congresswoman “disqualified herself” from serving on the Foreign Affairs panel, which “is viewed by nations around the world as speaking for Congress on matters of international importance and national importance and national security.” Miller later said, “This resolution is not about engaging in a tit-for-tat with my colleagues on the other side of the aisle. This is about keeping someone with a long record of antisemitic and anti-Israel bias off the Foreign Affairs Committee, which needs objective emissaries for our foreign policy.”
I applaud Kevin McCarthy and the Republicans for removing such a nasty, bitter woman who obviously hates Israel. Someone like her should not be on the Foreign Affairs Committee. Good job, Mr. McCarthy.
