Republican’s “Stupidest Vote”: Rep. Kustoff Cites ‘Antisemitic Rhetoric’ in Removal of Ilhan Omar from Committee

In a shocking move, the US House of Representatives voted to remove Ilhan Omar from her committee assignment, a decision that has sparked outrage and condemnation from both sides of the aisle.

Republican Congressman David Kustoff cited “antisemitic rhetoric” in his call for Omar’s removal from the committee. However, Democrats have blasted the move as an attack on a woman of color and an example of the Republican party’s hypocrisy.

“It was the stupidest vote I’ve ever seen in Congress,” said Republican Rep. Peter Meijer, according to a report by The Guardian.

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow said the decision had been a long time coming, citing Omar’s past comments and her status as a Muslim woman of color.

Meanwhile, The Guardian has suggested that the Republican party has a serious problem with antisemitism and that Omar’s removal from the committee was an example of this.

The incident has sparked a fierce debate over the role of race and religion in politics, with many arguing that Omar’s removal was a sign of Republican intolerance.
