Dems Move to Strip Boebert of Committee Assignments Over ‘Jihad Squad’ Comments

Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) introduced a resolution to condemn Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) for her “Islamaphobia” that would include removing her from her current committee assignments.

Pressley is a member of the so-called Squad of far-left lawmakers that includes Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who Boebert recently referred to as a member of the “Jihad squad.”

“For a Member of Congress to repeatedly use hateful, anti-Muslim rhetoric and Islamophobic tropes towards a Muslim colleague is dangerous. It has no place in our society and it diminishes the honor of the institution we serve in,” Pressley said. 

“Without meaningful accountability for that Member’s actions, we risk normalizing this behavior and endangering the lives of our Muslim colleagues, Muslim staffers and every Muslim who calls America home. The House must unequivocally condemn this incendiary rhetoric and immediately pass this resolution. How we respond in moments like these will have lasting impacts, and history will remember us for it,” she added.

So far, twelve lawmakers have co-sponsored the resolution, including Squad members Reps. Cori Bush (D-MO), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.).

    Isn’t Pressley a little bit skewed in the head!!!!!!! “For a Member of Congress to repeatedly use hateful, anti-Muslim rhetoric and Islamophobic tropes towards a Muslim colleague is dangerous. It has no place in our society and it diminishes the honor of the institution we serve in,” Pressley said. ”

    Who uses more terroristic language than Omar and AOC — who literally demand destruction of israel. Who uses more caustic language against their own colleagues and against Americans than Omar and AOC…….and NOTHING is ever said !!!!!

    Something is SERIOUSLY wrong with this picture!!! Terrorists have no place in the governance of America and THESE WOMEN CERTAINLY DO FIT THE TITLE.
