Ilhan Omar is back after Kevin McCarthy promises to take her commissions out

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minnesota) backed down against House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) after he vowed to remove her from committee duties if he were to become chair. on Fox News Sunday morning futuresThe Republican said he would remove Omar, along with Representatives Eric Swalwell and Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), from their committees. “Congresswoman Omar, her anti-Semitic comments that came forward, we will not allow her to be in foreign affairs,” McCarthy said, referring to Omar’s criticism of Israel’s actions with Palestine. In her statement, Uma said the Republican Party had “made it their mission” to target her through “fear, xenophobia, Islamophobia, and racism,” inciting death threats and plotting against her and her family. Omar said, “McCarthy’s efforts to single me out again and again for contempt and hate—including threatening to strip me of my commission—do nothing to address the issues my constituents deal with.” It does nothing to address inflation, health care, or solve the climate crisis. What it does is spread fear and hate against Somali Americans and anyone who shares my identity, and further divide us along racial and ethnic lines.”
