House Republicans introduce resolution to censure the 'Squad'

Source: The Hill

A trio of House Republicans on Monday introduced a resolution to censure and condemn Democratic Reps. Ilhan Omar (Minn.), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) and Ayanna Pressley (Mass.) for what they call "defending terrorist organizations and inciting anti-Semitic attacks across the United States."

The resolution, introduced by Reps. Mike Waltz (R-Fla.), Jim Banks (R-Ind.) and Claudia Tenney (R-N.Y.), cites a number of incidents involving the four lawmakers, sometimes referred to as "The Squad," including the most recent controversy surrounding Omar and her comments equating war crimes committed by the U.S. and Israel to those by the Taliban and Hamas terrorist groups.

The resolution also cites the four lawmakers referring to Israel as an "apartheid state" and points to Tlaib accusing the Israeli government of "ethnic cleansing" against Palestinians.

"We cannot turn a blind eye to Members of Congress openly defending terrorist attacks by Hamas against our close ally Israel nor their dangerous rhetoric which has contributed to anti-Semitic attacks across the country," Waltz said in a press release.

Oh fuck off.

I've had my disagreements with the squad here and there but nothing they've done rises to the level of the "Jewish space lasers" lady's advocacy of insurrection or the stable genius's claim that there were good people among those who chanted "Jews will not replace us".

6. This is gross. The GOP is using Jews as a bludgeon against non-white Democrats.

This is a double dose of racism here.

8. Did I miss something when did "the Squad" start to defend those that invaded the Capital 1/6/21?

Those terrorists will not find defenders in "the Squad" the way I see it.

GQP nut cases trying to confuse who in fact are the Domestic terrorist attacking our Democracy.

9. It's a distraction from Insurrections & fascist subpoenas. Look at the Squad while we take away voti

10. Pretty sure that is covered under freedom of speech or something....

These republicans have a twisted view for what they want this country to be like. Nothing is stopping them from coming out with what they view as persuasive counter-arguments. Isn't that part of what politicians are supposed to do? I guess it's far easier to go the authoritarian route. There people are doing everything in their power to take away the things that make us better than authoritarian countries.

we can play the same game. Get Mo Brooks, Hawley, Tuberville, Ron Johnson, Hawley, Cruz for their involvement and planning the insurrection. They are guilty as hell. They need to be held accountable.
