Mary Peltola stands with Omar, anti-Semitism, and anti-Americanism
February 2, 2023
Mary Peltola just made it clear: she stands with Ilhan Omar and her anti-Semitic and anti-American rhetoric.
Peltola 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 Mary Peltola just rubber stamped it with their seal of approval. Shame on Peltola for refusing to stand up to the worst elements of her party.” – NRCC Spokesperson Ben Petersen
