Once again, living up to promises made during the 2022 campaign, House Republicans have now voted to remove anti-semite, anti-American, Muslim, Democrat Ilhan Omar from the important Foreign Affairs committee.
House Republicans took action on Thursday to fulfill one of new House Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s aim to boot Omar from the foreign affairs committee to keep her from further damaging this country.
The vote was 218 to 211 along party lines with only one traitor Republican joining Democrats in support of the Minnesota Democrat. Republican, Rep. David Joyce (OH) voted “present” to avoid coming down on one side or the other, but his vote is a yes, to be sure.
Per Breitbart News:
The vote is a win for House Republicans, who hold a slim majority in the chamber, after a few from their conference initially objected to the resolution. The three who had vocally opposed it, Reps. Victoria Spartz (R-IN), Nancy Mace (R-SC), and Ken Buck (R-CO), had flipped their vote by Thursday morning.
Majority Whip Tom Emmer (R-MN), a key player in the successful whip operation, told Breitbart News in an exclusive statement that Omar, a fellow Minnesotan, had “no place representing American interests” on the Foreign Affairs Committee.
“There is no debate that Ilhan Omar, the face of antisemitism in the Democrat Party, has no place representing American interests on the Foreign Affairs Committee. Ms. Omar is an embarrassment to Minnesota and our country,” Emmer said.
The vote is also a victory for Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), who first indicated he would strip Omar of the committee seat in an interview with Breitbart News more than a year ago.
“Ilhan Omar should not be serving on Foreign Affairs,” McCarthy said at the time. “This is a new level of what the Democrats have done.”
Ilhan Omar was promoted despite a history of antisemitic rhetoric days after Democrats booted Marjorie Taylor Greene from her committees. https://t.co/zbvaIZmbaG
