U.S. Rep Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, and Cori Bush speak at the Mississippi River in Minneapolis asking for President Biden to stop Line 3 pipeline construction.

The U.S. House of Representatives voted to remove Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., from the powerful Foreign Affairs Committee in a Thursday afternoon vote.

The vote came to the floor after Republican Reps. Ken Buck and Victoria Spartz reversed their decision to oppose the resolution to punish Omar for her history of antisemitic comments.

The Washington Times has more:

Ms. Omar, a Minnesota Democrat and member of the far-left “Squad,” was kicked off the committee in a party-line 218-211 vote.

Ms. Omar, who came to the U.S. as a Somali refugee and was one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress, said she was being targeted by Republicans because she is an immigrant, a Black woman and a Muslim.

“This debate today is about who is going to be an American,” Ms. Omar said in a floor speech before the vote. “There is an idea that you are suspect if you are an immigrant.”

Ms. Omar has been vocal about her opposition to the Israeli government and its supporters, particularly on the issue of Palestinian rights, which led to the allegations of antisemitism.

Omar’s rhetoric in the past has also offended some Democrats, who have on occasion spoken out against her.

Every Democrat voted against today’s resolution.

  1. This vote to remove her was the right thing to do and all the Democrats that voted against the resolution are commies in disguise !!!

  2. The islamic terrorist bitch should
    be shot for treason. How stupid
    can the delusional Democraps
    be to support this pig shit scum.
    Wake the hell up and get the rest
    of these gutter rats out asap.
    ESAD !!!!!!

  3. She came into this country illegally because she was married to her brother which is illegal in this country and our laws should up held and she should be deported and not one cent of retirement from our government!

  4. Race they ‘may’ not be out and out commies but they certainly are leaning heavily in that direction.
    As to her whining about being ‘suspect’ because of her background/race/gender – NOPE – she is correctly being treated as her actions have earned her.

  5. What about the squad members who were supporting Antifa terrorists for rioting and burning in Atlanta? It’s always free speech when the liberals are involved. If a conservative did it they would push for censure. The House made the right decision.

  6. The silly little simpleton…she’s not getting booted out because she’s an immigrant, America is made up of immigrants who come here legally, or booted because she’s a black woman…there are many respected black woman in congress or because she’s a Muslim as America boasts of freedom of religion…no, none of those…she’s being booted because she’s an unAmerican jerk bent on destroying the constitution to make way for a communist takeover. Nobody is fooled by her crocodile tears.
