Hoyle and Salinas back anti-Semite Ilhan Omar

February 2, 2023

Val Hoyle and Andrea Salinas just made it clear: they stand with Ilhan Omar and her anti-Semitic and anti-American rhetoric.

Hoyle and Salinas voted to keep Omar on the Foreign Affairs Committee because they think this is acceptable:

  • Describing the 9/11 attacks as “some people did something.”
  • Comparing America and Israel to Hamas and the Taliban.
  • Suggesting American officials who support Israel are paid to do so because it’s “all about the Benjamins baby.”

Worse, the vote could not even begin until Democrats embarrassingly screamed on the House floor in defense of anti-Semitism and anti-Americanism.


“Val Hoyle and Andrea Salinas just gave Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitic, anti-American comments their seal of approval. Shame on Hoyle and Salinas for refusing to stand up to the worst elements of their party.” – NRCC Spokesperson Ben Petersen
