House Republicans on Thursday scandalously voted to kick Rep Ilhan Omar (D-MN) off the Foreign Affairs Committee due to her past criticisms of Israel but Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) wants her followers to think they were motivated not by advancing Israel’s interests but instead by generic anti-black racism.

The GOP’s resolution to boot Omar off specifically states her criticisms of Israel and AIPAC are the driving force behind their move against her:
The resolution says far more about her criticisms of Israel than America and doesn’t even mention her anti-white comments.
Nonetheless, rather than respond to the GOP’s scandalous decision by saying representatives should not be kicked off committees for criticizing a foreign power, AOC said the GOP wasn’t actually driven to act due to her criticisms of Israel but instead due to generic racism towards “women of color.”
“Don’t tell me that this is about a condemnation of anti-Semitic remarks,” Cortez said while taking on a bizarre new accent. “This is about targeting women of color in the United States of America!”

“I had a member of the Republican caucus threaten my life and the Republican caucus rewarded him with one of the most prestigious committee assignments in this Congress,” Cortez said, further derailing the issue at hand by referencing a satirical anime meme Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) shared on Twitter a few years ago which triggered the Democrats to kick him off his committees.
Omar was unquestionably kicked off the Foreign Affairs Committee for criticizing Israel.
Ilhan Omar has no place on the Foreign Affairs Committee.

I proudly voted to remove Rep. Omar from the Foreign Affairs Cmte due to her blatant anti-Semitism.
I'll always stand with my Jewish neighbors in SWFL & around the world. Anti-Semitism in all forms is unacceptable. It's unfortunate we must again restate what should be obvious.

Nonetheless, AOC, Omar herself and the rest of “The Squad” are too afraid to even say it.
Rep. Ilhan Omar responded to her removal from the Foreign Affairs Committee on Thursday. The Republican-majority House voted Omar off of her assignment over past remarks on Israel. "What opinions do we have to have to be counted as Americans?" Omar said. https://t.co/MDAtzwfbQm pic.twitter.com/YZJdYq1r3T

Despite being a total stooge, even former President Barack Obama said in his 2020 book “A Promised Land” that politicians who “criticize Israel policy too loudly” get smeared as “anti-Israel” and “anti-Semitic” and get “confronted with a well-funded opponent in the next election.”
Obama was never canceled for his comments — perhaps because he was already out of office and is too important to the Democratic coalition — but what he described is exactly what happened to Ilhan Omar.
Omar wasn’t targeted because she’s a “woman of color” — the GOP are doing everything in their power to recruit as many minority candidates as possible even if it means recruiting ex-cons to run for office like Solmon Peña in New Mexico — she was targeted because at one point, years ago, she criticized Israel.
That should be a scandal itself.
