A tit for tat!
Ilhan Omar is a far-left radical who reportedly has a history of making anti-semetic remarks, and pushing fringe conspiracy theories.
If Democrats want to remove Marjorie Taylor Greene from her committee assignments for her supposed ‘conspiratorial views’, then it is only fair that Omar be removed too.
Of course Democrats are going to push their racialist nonsense when it comes to this. They will try to say ‘you’re targeting a woman of color’ blah, blah, blah.
I say it’s time for them to get some principles. If you want to remove Marjorie then Ilhan goes too; no one can tell us that it is not fair! This is COMPLETELY fair!

Trending Politics had more on the story:
Several Republican lawmakers are pushing to remove far-left anti-semite and congresswoman Ilhan Omar from her committee assignments because of her history of anti-Semitism and conspiracy theories.
The move comes after Democrats pushed to remove Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) from her committee assignments in response to her alleged conspiracy theories.
“The House is set to consider a measure this week that calls for Taylor Greene, a controversial first-term lawmaker known for support of the QAnon conspiracy theory, from her assignment on the Education and Labor Committee,” Fox News reported. “A proposed GOP-backed amendment to that measure calls for Omar, frequently identified as a member of the ‘Squad’ of progressive Democrats, to be removed from her committee assignments.”
The Daily Wire reported:
Fox News reporter Chad Pergram said that those sponsoring the legislation included Reps. Brian Babin (R-TX), Jeff Duncan (R-SC), Jody Hice (R-GA), Andy Biggs (R-AZ) and Ronny Jackson (R-TX).
Omar has an extensive history in trafficking in anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and tropes, including her claim that “Israel has hypnotized the world.”
Then-New York Times Columnist Bari Weiss noted that Omar’s anti-Semitic remark was similar to what was promoted in Nazi Germany.
“The Jewish power to hypnotize the world, as Ms. Omar put it, is the plot of Jud Süss — the most successful Nazi film ever made,” Weiss wrote. “In the film, produced by Joseph Goebbels himself, Josef Süss Oppenheimer, an 18th-century religious Jew, emerges from the ghetto, makes himself over as an assimilated man, and rises to become the treasurer to the Duke of Württemberg. Silly duke: Allowing a single Jew into his city leads to death and destruction.”
