During an unhinged rant on the House floor about Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) being removed from the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) attacked Republicans — accusing them of “racism” and “incitement of violence.”

Omar, who has a history of making anti-Semitic remarks, was removed from the Foreign Affairs Committee with a 218-211 vote.

The Democrat congresswoman has previously posted on Twitter suggesting that support for Israel is driven by money from American Jews.


Meanwhile, Ocasio-Cortez insists that the decision to remove Omar was unfair, calling it “disgusting” and arguing that it brings the United States back to what she claims is a post-9/11 legacy of “targeting and racism against Muslim Americans.”

Ocasio-Cortez went on to assert that congressional Republicans were targeting Omar because she is a woman of color, claiming that there is no consistency in the Republican Party except “racism” and inciting “violence.”

“Consistency? There is nothing consistent about the Republican Party’s continued attack except for racism and incitement of violence against women of color in this body,” the New York Democrat claimed.

Ironically, she also referenced two Republican lawmakers during her rant, Reps. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), attacking both of them about previous comments or actions that offended her. Beyond the fact that her claims were completely false, it appears that Ocasio-Cortez forgot that both Greene and Gosar were removed from their committees by Democrats over these accusations — which directly contradicts her argument.

“Don’t tell me this is about a condemnation of anti-Semitic remarks when you have a member of the Republican Caucus who has talked about Jewish space lasers and an entire amount of tropes and also elevated her to some of the highest committee assignments of this body,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

The truth is that Greene made an outlandish comment about lasers possibly causing a forest fire, and later made a reference to Rothschild bank funding — which the Democrats immediately tried to claim was a comment about Jews.

While Ocasio-Cortez dramatically slammed her notebook against the stand at the end of her rant, critics argue that the most over-the-top response to Omar’s removal was from congressional Democrats themselves — as they all screamed “No” at the top of their lungs in voting against her removal, stretching out the word as long as they possibly could.
