McCarthy Gives Democrats The Boot

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said on Saturday that when he becomes the House speaker next year, he will remove Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., from the House Foreign Affairs Committee because of her “antisemitic” comments.

During the Republican Jewish Coalition’s 2022 leadership meeting in Las Vegas, McCarthy noted that antisemitism continued to grow not only on university campuses but also within Congress. He added that last year he had promised that if he were to become Speaker Omar would no longer have her position on Foreign Affairs, and this is a promise that he is going to keep going forward. In response to this statement, the crowd cheered loudly.

McCarthy is the most likely speaker of the House now that the Republicans are going to be taking the House majority in early January. In order for this to be confirmed, McCarthy will need to be voted in his position on Jan. 3. Republicans will be taking over the house with a narrow majority, which means that McCarthy cannot afford to lose too many GOP votes.

Since her election to Congress in 2018, Omar has made many controversial statements, many of which play into the antisemitic commentary. This includes saying that the American Israel Public Affairs Committee is “all about the Benjamins”. Another such comment includes saying that “We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban.” This comment was widely seen as placing Israel and the U.S. in the same place as the Taliban.

  1. remember the old saying”Remember the Alamo”, well that is taking place here and also for the Republicans taking over, remember all the things the Democrats did to you, Impeaching Pres Trump twice and many other things while they were in power.

  2. Omar needs to be relieved of ANY and ALL committee responsibilities. She’s anti-American and needs to be shown her illegal self out of the country on the end of a steel-coated boot! Short of that she should removed from Congress.

  3. What happened to the other Dems in California, just what I thought McCarthy is a Trojan horse and has his hand out for his self and never deliver the whole promise . The only people who loose is the Americans, so we need a person not connected to Ryan Paul

  4. Mc Carthy is a Rhino can’t we get someone better? Time for the rhinos to go he doesn’t do well with President Trump and I DONT TRUST HIM he proved himself once.

  5. Ladies and gentilemen, this is ALLLLLLLLLLL bullsh**!!! nccarthy IS a gutless backstabber to ALLLLL Americans.
