The Freshman Democrats are categorically ruining the country.
AOC has a Green New Deal that’d wreck the economy for centuries
And Ilhan Omar’s recent behavior has Mike Pence saying he’s got a big problem with Ilhan Omar that could eliminate her for good.
Not only would this satisfy many conservatives who are tired of her vitriol, it’d also prove that America is not going to tolerate a lawmaker who’d like to see the Jewish state wiped from the face of the Earth.
In a statement on Friday, Mike Pence went on the record again requesting that Ilhan Omar be removed from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
Pence said on an episode of “Fox and Friends”:
“IIhan Omar has made statements … anti-Semitic comments … Statements against our most cherished ally: Israel … that ought to be rejected by every American. And frankly, the fact that very recently she has been trying to blame the United States of America for the deprivation and poverty brought on by the dictatorship in Venezuela.”
Pence’s assertions are spot on.
There’s no reason for an elected official who doesn’t have the best interests of the U.S. to serve on such an important committee.
Omar has drawn the criticism of voters on the left and the right because she’s demonstrated nothing but contempt for the many sacrifices people have made to make this country as great as it is.
A few weeks ago, the freshman lawmaker made callous remarks about the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks that incensed more than 90% of the country.
Dismissing the terror attacks as insignificant, “some people did some things” she said, proved Omar would rather be politically correct and not call at our enemies than speak the truth about how to protect our country.
And her recent comments blaming the U.S. for what’s happening in Venezuela show she’s incapable of understanding what steps need to be taken in order to prevent something similar from happening here.
Pence is joined by another Trump appointee in voicing his concerns about Omar remaining on the Committee.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle”:
“So, the nicest thing I can say is it is unbelievable ignorance. It’s just factually wrong,” Pompeo said of Omar’s comments.
“The problems in Venezuela have been years in the making. It’s been a socialist regime, first with [Hugo] Chavez, now with Maduro. The destruction of a wealthy nation. A nation with more oil reserves than any other country in the world,” he said.
The fact that Omar’s on the Committee also concerns Pompeo.
“For a member of Congress who, frankly, one who sits on an important national committee, making a statement blaming America first in this way, it’s not only ignorant, it’s disgusting,” he said.
Whether or not other members of Congress will hold her to the high standards required of lawmakers on the Foreign Affairs Committee is questionable.
But as Pence mentioned, it could be the case that Omar is recalled by voters.
“The people of Minnesota will decide whether or not she remains in Congress,” Pence said. “Congresswoman Omar has no place on the House Foreign Affairs Committee and the Democratic leadership ought to remove her.”
