The human waste products that make up Alabama Republicans thought they were being cute by passing a resolution (by voice vote) to have Rep. Ilhan Omar removed from Congress got their comeuppance yesterday when Omar heard the news. She reminded them, in no uncertain terms, that the United States was still a representative democracy, and of their past support for a pedophile, Roy Moore, in his ill-fated quest to join the U.S. Senate.
Alabama Republicans are pushing for a controversial Minnesota Representative to be removed from Congress.
A resolution passed last weekend at the GOP summer meeting in Auburn called for Alabama’s elected Congressional delegation to “proceed with the expulsion process” for Ilhan Omar, a first-term Democratic Representative and one of the first two Muslim women elected to the House. Omar has been criticized for her comments about Israel and America’s long-time support for its ally.
“Rep. Omar has engaged in rhetoric that explicitly runs counter to American values and patriotism by falsely accusing U.S. armed forces of committing war crimes while on mission to liberate her home country of Somalia,” the resolution noted, adding Omar also “dismissed the 9/11 terror attacks” and “sympathized with a convicted terrorist” by advocating for “sentencing leniency.”
“Omar has a disturbing record of using anti-Semitic language that includes alleging Jewish money is used to buy American influence regarding its policy toward Israel,” the resolution continued.
The committee passed the resolution on a voice vote after it was proposed by State Rep. Tommy Hanes of Scottsboro.
Hanes told the Washington Post that their justification for the motion was based on:
“There is precedence for Article 1, Section 5 of the constitution being invoked to expel members of Congress based on disloyalty to the United States." “Rep. Omar is ungrateful to the United States and the opportunities that have been afforded to her,” Hanes said, later adding that the congresswoman’s race and religion were irrelevant to the party’s recent efforts. “Her rhetoric is despicable and unpatriotic.”
Yes, I'm sure they're color blind in Alabama and have nothing against Muslims, too.
UPDATE: And on cue, the child molester himself weighs in.

I'd tell Roy Moore to go back to where he came from but he's been banned from that mall
