When Rep. Marjorie Greene (R-Ga) got dropped for her remarks by Democrats?
It set the stage for Rep. Omar and Rep Schiff to be dropped by House Majority Republicans….
(Greene has regain committee spots)
Although some House GOper’s aren’t happy with this?
In these times….
Party comes first on many things….
“Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) was kicked off the the House Foreign Affairs Committee in a party-line vote that followed a contentious debate on the House floor Thursday morning that included yelling and Omar defending herself on the verge tears,” the Washington Post reports.
“Omar, a refugee from Somalia, is one of the first Muslim women to serve in the House of Representatives and often faces death threats and other threats of violence. Her office told The Post that violent threats had increased considerably since she has been in the news again.”
Jonathan Chait: “One of the first things the Republican Party did upon gaining control of the House of Representatives was to restore committee privileges to Marjorie Taylor Greene, whose positions were stripped over a series of deranged and bigoted statements. One of its next moves is to impose the same punishment on Ilhan Omar over her past antisemitic statements.”
“The absurdity and vindictiveness of the Omar decision is thrown into the starkest relief when you consider it in conjunction with the treatment of Greene.”
