House Republicans introduce resolution to censure the 'Squad' [View all]

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".
