(SNews) – House Republicans have voted to remove radical Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) from the Foreign Affairs Committee.
The congresswoman lost her Committee assignment over past antisemitic comments and concerns over her objectivity.
Omar’s Democrat allies suffered a public meltdown over the move, with some yelling out in rage during the vote.

The resolution to remove Omar, introduced by Rep. Max Miller (R-OH), stated that she “has disqualified herself from serving on the Committee on Foreign Affairs, a panel that is viewed by nations around the world as speaking for Congress on matters of international importance and national security.”
Far-left Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) broke down in tears during her speech defending Omar against being removed from the Foreign Affairs Committee.

Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO), a former Black Lives Matter leader, claims the decision was motivated by racism.
“The white supremacy happening is unbelievable,” Bush alleged.
“Ilhan Omar has been harassed at her job for simply existing as a Muslim woman in Congress.”
Celebrity Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) was outraged by the move.
“One of the disgusting legacies of 9-11 has been the targeting and racism against Muslim Americans and this is an extension of that legacy,” AOC claimed.
“Racism and incitement of violence against women of color.”

Omar said she is not going anywhere if she is removed:
“It’s not only a political stunt but also a blow to the integrity of our democratic institution and threat to our national security.
“My voice will get louder and stronger!
“My leadership will be celebrated around the world, as it has been!”
