This top Democrat was FIRED after shocking revelations surfaced

Democrats can’t seem to stay out of scandals. If they aren’t careful, the whole party will collapse with them.

And this top Democrat was FIRED after shocking revelations surfaced.

The Left’s favorite tactic on the political battlefield is to play identity politics.

Whether it’s race, religion, or some other identifier, they virtue signal and pretend they are morally above their opponents.

The reality beneath the gilded surface is usually a rotten core, and Ilhan Omar just found out how far she could fall.

The Republican-led House voted Thursday to remove Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar from the Foreign Affairs Committee due to her previous anti-Semitic remarks, after a few of Republicans who had previously opposed her removal chose to back the bill.

Following a heated floor debate, the vote to remove Omar (D-Minn.) from the important panel split along party lines, with 218 Republicans voting to remove her and 211 Democrats supporting their colleague. David Joyce of Ohio, a Republican, voted present.

Rep. Michael Guest, a Republican, noted six statements made by Omar, 40, while in office that “under the totality of the circumstances, disqualify her from serving on the Committee of Foreign Affairs” (R-Miss.).

“All members, both Republicans and Democrats alike who seek to serve on Foreign Affairs, should be held to the highest standard of conduct due to the international sensitivity and national security concerns under the jurisdiction of this committee,” Guest said.

Rep. Max Miller (R-Ohio) introduced the resolution, which stated: “Omar’s comments have brought dishonor to the House of Representatives.”

“Omar clearly cannot be an objective decision-maker on the Foreign Affairs Committee given her biases against Israel and the Jewish people,” it continued.

Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas), chairman of the committee, said he supported the resolution, telling reporters that Omar’s “worldview of Israel is so diametrically opposed to the committee’s.”

“I don’t mind having differences of opinion, but this goes beyond that.”

“When you push power, power pushes back,” Omar said in her final statement before the vote, adding: “My voice will get louder and stronger, and my leadership will be celebrated around the world.”

The vote to remove Omar followed Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s decision to remove Democratic Reps. Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell, both of California, from the House Intelligence Committee — as well as Democrats’ removal of GOP Reps. Paul Gosar of Arizona and Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia from their committees in the previous Congress.

“When a resolution was brought up to deal with this last time, she never apologized,” McCarthy (R-Calif.) told reporters after the vote. “They changed the resolution to say anti-Semitism is wrong.”

“We’re not removing her from other committees,” McCarthy added. “This is nothing like the last Congress where you move somebody from all committees.”

Miller’s resolution cited an Omar tweet from February 2019 in which she implied that American lawmakers who support Israel are paid by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee — saying it’s “all about the Benjamins” — as well as a statement she made weeks later condemning “the political influence in this country that says it is OK for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country.”

The next month, Omar minimized the September 11, 2001, terror attacks, telling the Council on American-Islamic Relations that the organization was created because “some people did something and we were all starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”

During a Foreign Affairs Committee hearing in 2021, Omar linked Israel to terrorist organizations like Hamas and the Taliban and called America’s Middle Eastern partner an “apartheid state.”

Omar defended herself Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” by saying she was unfamiliar with “tropes about Jews and money.”

”I certainly did not or was not aware that the word ‘hypnotized’ was a trope. I wasn’t aware of the fact that there are tropes about Jews and money. That has been a very enlightening part of this journey,” she said.

“She said on 9/11 — on 9/11 — as a member of Congress, as an individual sitting on Foreign Affairs, something happened that day,” McCarthy said Thursday. “What does that say to other people around the world? What does that say to somebody else who wants to create another 9/11, America? I’m sorry, it’s not right.
