Valin Posted February 2 Share Posted February 2 The Daily Wire Ryan Saavedra Feb 2, 2023 House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) delivered on his promise Thursday to remove Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) from the House Foreign Affairs Committee over her extensive history of anti-Semitism. Of the 222 Republicans in the House, 218 voted to remove Omar, while three did not vote and one, Rep. Dave Joyce (R-OH), voted “present.” Speaker McCarthy outlined many of the inflammatory and bigoted remarks that Omar has made, including the use of anti-Semitic tropes, comparing the U.S. Military to Islamic terrorist organizations, describing the events of 9/11 as “some people did something,” among numerous other statements. McCarthy also noted that Omar has “never apologized” for many of her remarks.
