Alabama GOP Passes Resolution Calling For Ilhan Omar’s Expulsion From Congress

The Alabama GOP has had enough of Ilhan Omar.

The Alabama GOP called for the expulsion of Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) from the U.S. Congress Saturday night.

Submitted by Jackson County Republican Party Executive Committee Members Rep. Tommy Hanes (R-Bryant) and Vice Chairman Dylan Smith, a resolution calling for Omar’s expulsion cites a number of vile actions of the freshman Congresswoman.

The resolution cited Omar’s claims that the United States committed war crimes during its military operations in her home country of Somalia in the 1990’s, says that she downplayed the 9/11 terrorist attacks by saying “some people did something,” accuses her of sympathizing with ISIS (she asked a judge for leniency in sentencing a convicted terrorist while she was a Minnesota State House Representative) and notes that she is virulently anti-Semitic.

“It’s just simply asking this body to ask the U.S. delegation, the Alabama delegation in Washington, D.C. to start proceedings to unseat Ilhan Omar, congresswoman from Minnesota,” Hanes reportedly said. “This woman is continuously spewing anti-American rhetoric, anti-Semitism. She is un-American. She came from a war-torn country in Somalia to seek protection under Lady Liberty’s hand.”

Leading the charge, Hanes said he wants to “let Alabama be first and let’s see how many other states follow,” hoping that the GOP will step up in other places around the country and follow suit.

“Therefore, be it resolved, that the Alabama Republican Party urges its elected congressional delegation to proceed with the expulsion process in accordance to Article 1, Section 5 of the U.S. Constitution to expel Rep. Omar from the United States House of Representatives,” the resolution ends.

The resolution did not even mention that Omar, who was born in Somalia and came to the United States as a refugee, allegedly married her brother in an immigration fraud scheme, accusations which she has faced since she ran as a State Rep., which were first brought to light on a national level more than a year ago on this site.

Most recently, Omar shared an anti-Semitic cartoon drawn by a Holocaust denier. Just before that, the State Department was forced to change the definition of anti-Semitism after Omar compared Israel to Nazi Germany.

“In an apparent response to recent comments by U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, the U.S. State Department modified its official definition of anti-Semitism to include ‘drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of Nazis’ as an example of anti-Semitism in public life,” as we reported. “In May, the State Department defined anti-Semitism using a list containing 10 examples of anti-Semitism. The updated definition now cites 11 examples.”
