Democrats have entered a “committee cancel culture,” if you will. They’ve taken things that Republicans have said, tweeted, or used on social media to kick them off of their special committees in Congress. It isn’t an incredible thing for Republicans, especially when Congress members are actively discriminatory toward races, religions, etc.
Hamas doesn’t even accept Ilhan Omar’s (D-MI) statements. Hamas said, “She equated between the victim and the executioner when she treated the resistance of the Palestinian people, the Israeli crimes in Palestine, and the US aggression in Afghanistan as an equal footing.”
Lauren Boebert (R-CO) called Omar a “terror fangirl” and had other accurate comments about Omar.
Boebert said, “The Jihad Squad member from Minnesota has paid over a million dollars in campaign funds to her husband, not her brother’s husband, the other one.” While praising terrorists, this member served on the Foreign Affairs Committee. My colleague on the Intelligence Committee, a three-month presidential candidate from California, slept with Fang Fang, a Chinese spy. Again, a member of Congress who receives classified briefings is sleeping with the enemy.”
Did any of the Democrats lose their committee positions for their actual actions? No.
But, Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) introduced a resolution to kick Boebert off of her committee assignments.
If Omar isn’t being anti-Semitic by saying, “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel,” and her comment of the US alliance with Israel is “all about Benjamin’s baby” aren’t antisemitic, then how on earth is Boebert being Islamophobic? The truth is, she’s not.
Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) said, “When she said that, she was evoking violence on Muslims all across our country. We shouldn’t have to beg and urge Republicans to do what’s right here. They have Muslims in their communities. I know they do.”
Then Omar’s comments were calling violence to Jews. It’s a simple bait and switch, but Democrats are playing a double standard that unfortunately may lead to more Republicans being thrown off their committee assignments. It is the new Democrat tactic, and it seems to be working.
