Vice President Mike Pence laid down the law on Congress and called for a top Democrat to be removed from her powerful seat.
While speaking before the annual America Israel Public Affairs Committee conference in Washington, D.C., Pence called for Rep. Ilhan Omar to be removed from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
“Recently a freshman Democrat in Congress trafficked in repeated anti-Semitic tropes,” Pence said.
“Alleged congressional support for Israel reflected allegiance to a foreign country,” he continued. “Said Israel, and I quote, ‘hypnotized the world.’ And she accused Americans who support Israel of being bought off by campaign contributions.”
The vice president then paused and let the crowd build up before he dropped another brutal one-liner.
“Anti-semitism has no place in the Congress of the United States of America!” Pence said, with the crowd roaring with cheers and applause.
“And at a minimum anyone who slanders those who support this historic alliance between the United States and Israel should never have a seat on the Foreign Affairs Committee in the United States House of Representatives,” Pence declared.

It’s certainly a very powerful thing when the vice president of the United States calls for a lawmaker to be removed from her powerful seat.
Omar has come under fire numerous times for making disturbing and controversial comments since becoming a member of Congress in January.
Earlier this month for describing the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks as “some people did something.”
Omar described 9/11 as “some people did something” rather than saying a group of al Qaeda terrorists hijacked four airplanes, ran two of them into the Twin Towers, and killed just shy of 3,000 innocent Americans.
As detailed by I Love My Freedom, here are just a few of the remarks she has made since becoming a member of Congress in January:
–“I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is OK for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country. I want to ask, why is it OK for me to talk about the influence of the [National Rifle Association], of fossil-fuel industries, or Big Pharma, and not talk about a powerful lobby that is influencing policy?” Omar said at a policy forum in Washington, DC, last month.
–Omar apologized for a 2012 tweet in which she claimed Israel had “hypnotized” the world and committed “evil doings.”
–Omar apologized in March for stating that the American Israel Public Affairs Committee bribed Republican lawmakers into supporting the Jewish state.
Omar has a long history making anti-Semitic comments, and now Pence is demanding that she be removed from her powerful congressional seat.
Many Americans support Pence’s call for action.
