US Congresswoman Ilhan Omar risks expulsion from Congress as tensions mount for her removal over antisemitic comments.

Among those who have joined the growing calls for Omar’s expulsion from Congress is US Vice President, Mike Pence.

Mike Pence in a tweet dropped a massive bomb on the controversial Congresswoman. Pence tweeted “Those who engage in anti-Semitic tropes should not just be denounced, they should face consequences for their words,” 

Omar’s “tweets were a disgrace [and] her apology was inadequate. Antisemitism has no place in the United States Congress, much less the Foreign Affairs Committee,” Pence wrote.

The Vice President and others were upset about her tweet that suggested the only reasons US politicians support Israel is because they are paid to do so by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.

Her words hinted at one of the archetypal antisemitic stereotypes that accuse Jews of using money to control the world. 

Earlier in the day, President Donald Trump said of Omar’s comments, “Antisemitism has no place in the United States Congress… and I think she should either resign from Congress or she should certainly resign from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.” 

Omar has since apologized for her statement. “Antisemitism is real and I am grateful for Jewish allies and colleagues who are educating me on the painful history of antisemitic tropes,” she wrote. “My intention is never to offend my constituents or Jewish Americans as a whole. At the same time, I reaffirm the problematic role of lobbyists in our politics, whether it be AIPAC, the NRA or the fossil fuel industry.”

Trump, like Pence, felt her apology was inadequate.

“What she said is so deep-seated in her heart that her lame apology – and that’s what it was, it was lame, and she didn’t mean a word of it – was just not appropriate,” Trump said.

  1. There’s no freakin way that Omar and Cortez really won their midterm elections.
    And if somehow they did win fair and square then that just shows how messed up the people who voted for them really are.
    But their time is coming for both of them.
    Omar is being investigated again for falsifying document’s to get her citizenship
    She got caught getting married to her own brother just to get her citizenship so basically she lied multiple times to get her citizenship and to get her seat in Congress.
    Witch are both felonies and she’ll get what she deserves.
    And Cortez is being investigated for getting caught hiding over a million dollars in a private bank account so she could spend the money on whatever she wants without anyone knowing anything about it. Yeah she’s going to get what she deserves also

    Seems like you’ve missed more than couple of history lessons in school.
    Had you not skipped school, you would have learned that the Palestinian problem started by the Arab states encouraging the Arab population of then Palestine to evacuate the territory until they ” wiped the Jews to the sea”.
    Then the Arab states perpetuated the refugee problem by treating their fellow arabs like second rate persons, never to be recognized as equals.
    While so, those Arabs that did NOT leave became equal citizens of the state of Israel .
    Did you ever ask yourself what happened to hundreds of thousands of Jewish refugees who escaped persecution in the Arab states around the same time? Had you inquired about that you would have learned that those refugees, fellow Jews became citizens of Israel and gone was the refugee problem.
    Chris!
    Never too late to go to high school again!

  3. This Muslim tramp has no business in Congress and actually her American hating incestueous ass should be thrown back to the Shithole she came from!

  4. how stupid do you have to be to fail to understand criticism of israel is … not … anti-semitism. anti-semitism is is targeting someone specifically because he is jewish, which is no different than targeting someone simply because he is muslim — if it’s ok to target one group but not the other, then you’re a hypocrite too. zionism is a national movement within judaism which originated around the turn of the 20th century … can you comprehend the difference between religion (judaism) and national movement (zionism)? israel evolved from a grant of immigration of jews into palestine under the balfour agreement … this document is held up as the ‘proof’ jews may live in palestine. unfortunately, none of them bothered to read the second sentence, which specifically states that the indigenous pre-existing arab population is to be left alone … we all know how that turned out … furthermore, israel has maintained an ongoing progrom of violence towards the palestinian population and support for it is morally indefensible … i assume you are american. what if canadians suddenly decided we wanted to live in texas, and so we convinced (read: paid-off) a texan governor to write a note giving canadians permission to live there … BUT … once the candians arrived, they decided they wanted your house, so they simply moved in and changed the locks … the judges in texas are all canadians too, so don’t look for help there — you’re now simply homeless and without any recourse to justice … would you be alright with that, or would you take to darker strategies to win back your home … and while you’re sitting on the sidewalk thinking about what to do, the canadian who just took over your house pretends not to see you and hits you with his car, putting you in a wheelchair for the rest of your life … you’ll sue? … don’t forget all the judges are canadian and they share the canadian hatred of you born & bred texans, as if your history of living there gives you any claim of ownership … now, seeing as the law is against you, you protest, taking your eight year old daughter with you to learn how civil protest works … BANG! … just that fast she’s a lump of meat because a canadian with a $4000 rifle nearly a mile away wanted to see if he could hit a target at that range … again, you have no recourse … when you get home, the electricity’s out and there’s no water because the canadian squatters re-routed the plumbing and the wiring so they could have a pool party … are you mad yet?

    THAT is how the ‘immigrant’ zionists (who, incidentally, have no link to the Hebrews of the Old Testament but are caucasians who converted to judaism in the 9th century on the shores of the black sea) treat those palestinians whose forebears have lived in the stolen land that makes up israel for 1,000 years … yes, but palestine was where the Hebrews lived 2,000 years ago, so their claim takes precedence over those who have lived there for the last 1,000 years … not to mention that all the archeological research performed by non-jewish academics have failed to find proof for any of the jewish mythology … but they insist it’s all true, so we just have to believe them, right?

    … feeling embarrassed yet? perhaps a little misinformed? or, if you want to call a spade a spade, you’re totally brainwashed …
