Unethical Quote Of The Month: Rep. Ilhan Omar

“I think it would be [hypocritical] for [Speaker McCarthy] to remove, you know, the first African-born on the subcommittee on Africa on the Foreign Affairs Committee, where I’ve had the opportunity to not only represent my constituents but the voice of so many people who have never had a voice on the Foreign Affairs Committee.”

—Rep. Omar (D-Minn), playing the race card, as usual.

I take no stand at this point regarding the tit-for-tat move of Speaker Kevin McCarthy to pull Omar from the the Foreign Affairs Committee, presumably because of her frequent anti-Semitic outbursts. The Democratic House had kicked Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene off the Budget and as well as the  Education and Labor Committees in February 2021 over her comments pushing conspiracy theories about Jews. McCarthy is simply applying the standards Nancy Pelosi established. (Both Greene and Omar are unethical Congresswomen who embarrass the institution as well as the districts that elected them.)

However, Omar’s claim that “historic” officials (translation: some combination of black, foreign-born, female, Muslim, gay or trans) should be held to different (translation: lower) standards of conduct than others is, while wholly predictable,  unethical by definition, as well as self-serving, discriminatory, and nauseating.

But that’s Rep. Omar.

And her party.

And the progressives who make up most of the membership of that party.

And the various tribal groups they cluster in.

  1. You mean subcontinent, not subcommittee, right? Something else McCarthy should do is reinstate the no headgear in the house rule that Nancy bug eyes lifted specifically so that this anti-Semitic bowel movement in human form could wear the muzzy head scarf.

  2. Sweetheart. This ain’t the U.N. This is the United States Congress’s House or Representatives. What is it about “foreign affairs” you don’t understand. Congress has an interest in looking out for the United States’ interests in its dealing with foreign countries. The people Congress represents are, you know, citizens of the United States. Foreigners don’t get to sit on the committee. Capice?
