Republicans have voted to remove Congresswoman Ilhan Omar from the Foreign Affairs Committee in what appears to be a decision rooted in racism and revenge. Omar spoke out before the vote and that this debacle was about who gets to be considered American and what opinions one is allowed to have. She said, “this debate today, it's about who gets to be an American. What opinions do we get to have — do we have to have to be counted as Americans? This is what this debate is about, Madam Speaker. There is this idea that you are a suspect if you are an immigrant or if you are from certain parts of the world or a certain skin tone or a Muslim.” Republicans are claiming that alleged anti-Semitism is why Omar should not serve on the committee, however, they are perfectly fine with people like Marjorie Taylor Greene and Paul Gosar serving on committees when they have a track record of touting anti-Jewish conspiracy theories and white nationalist talking points. It’s obvious that Republicans did this to score cheap political points and this is why they should never have been able to win enough elections to take back the House majority.
