Marie Gluesenkamp Perez stands with Omar, anti-Semitism, and anti-Americanism

February 2, 2023

Marie Gluesenkamp Perez just made it clear: she stands with Ilhan Omar and her anti-Semitic and anti-American rhetoric.

Perez voted to keep Omar on the Foreign Affairs Committee because she thinks 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.


“Ilhan Omar’s rhetoric is extreme and Marie Gluesenkamp Perez just rubber stamped it with her seal of approval. Shame on Perez for refusing to stand up to the worst elements of her party.” – NRCC Spokesperson Ben Petersen
