Of course not. If she were a Republican they would have had had her head on a fucking silver platter.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Friday that Democratic leadership won’t take further action against Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn. over a controversial tweet that asserted the U.S. and Israel, like Hamas and the Taliban, were guilty of “unthinkable atrocities.”
Omar clarified her tweet Thursday after facing condemnation from both sides of the aisle and said she didn’t mean to equate the U.S. and Israel with the terrorist groups.
Pelosi was asked at a press conference Friday if House leaders should take further action against Omar, who has a history of inflammatory remarks.
The speaker did not even let the reporter finish asking the question before answering in the negative.
……The Speaker’s actions are certainly not going to sit well with some GOP House members who were already warning Pelosi about a double standard.
Eight House Republicans, led by Rep. Carlos Gimenez of Florida in a letter to Pelosi demanded she remove Omar from her committee assignments – just as Democrats earlier this year pushed to remove Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., from her committee assignments after making controversial comments.
It’s strange that she would make a comparison like that, especially since she’s a terrorist supporter herself.
Background on Ilhan Omar, here.
She also committed immigration and marriage fraud with her own brother and received asylum under a false name.
All of those crimes should carry enough legal weight to send her ass back to Somalia.
