Bowman urges GOP leaders to strip Boebert of committee assignments

Source: The Hill

Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-N.Y.), a member of the progressive "squad" of Democratic lawmakers, urged GOP leadership on Wednesday to strip Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) of her committee assignments due to her Islamophobic comments about Rep. Ilham Omar (D-Minn.).

"The fact is that Congresswoman Omar is a Black, immigrant and visibly Muslim woman with power-and this is too much to handle for people who refuse to live in a society that celebrates diversity and abhors white supremacy. The question that we as leaders are called to answer is whether we will tolerate this kind of vile behavior and learn from history in order to protect our future," Bowman said in a statement.

"I'm urging House leadership to hold Lauren Boebert accountable by removing her from her committee assignments, advancing a resolution of condemnation, and taking all other appropriate measures to ensure our message that Islamophobia, anti-Blackness, and xenophobia will not stand is loud and clear," Brown added.

Boebert in multiple videos has been seen mocking Omar, one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress, as a terrorist.

I thought she already had been but maybe it was someone else. There are so many elected RWNJs these days.

1. She still has her committee assignments

Gosar and Greene do not.

Kevin McQuarthy is a total coward.

4. Yeah, good luck with that.

Getting GQP "leadership" (isn't that an oxymoron?) to hold Boebert accountable by removing her from her committee assignments, is wishful thinking writ large.

You'd have a better chance of success trying to separate a Tiger from its stripes.
