House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been hit with a backlash over her decision to assigned avowed antisemite and incestuous bigamist Rep. Ilhan Omar to the House Foreign Affairs Committee, despite the Minnesota Democrat’s record of antisemitism. The House Republican leadership blasted the decision. “It is disgraceful that Speaker Pelosi and her Democrat majority gave a coveted seat on the House Foreign Relations Committee to a member who has a documented history of making anti-Semitic and anti-Israel remarks,” House Minority Whip Steve Scalise said in a Thursday statement.
Karin McQuillan explained, “Rather than standing up against the disturbing rise of anti-Semitic rhetoric on the left, House Democrats have now just endorsed that ideology,” he said. There is more to #TheResistance than the political panic inspired by the likes of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.). They are riding a monster not of their own making. In order to survive, they are providing cover and normalization of something not at all normal.”

When pressed for examples, Omar responded: “Our relationship, really with the Israeli government and the Israeli state.
