Pence went after the anti-Semitic Democratic freshman Ilhan Omar and called for her to be removed from the Foreign Affairs Committee!
“It is astonishing to think that the party of Harry Truman, has been coopted by people who promote rank anti-Semitic rhetoric and work to undermine the broad American consensus on Israel. Recently, a freshman Democrat in Congress trafficked in anti-Semitic tropes, alleged Congressional support for Israel reflected an allegiance to a foreign country. Said, Israel, and I quote, “hypnotized the world,” and she accused Americans who support Israel of being bought off by campaign contributions. Anti-Semitism has no place in the Congress of the United States of America! … And at a minimum anyone who slanders those who support this historic alliance between the United States and Israel should never have a seat on the Foreign Affairs Committee!”
THE AIPAC CROWD ROARED!
