AOC, "Squad" calls on Pelosi to Punish Boebert for her Comments on Ilhan Omar

Some Democrats are pushing House Speaker to punish Rep. Lauren Boebert for her recent comments on Ilhan Omar that have ignited controversy.

Per The Hill:

Omar’s liberal allies are racing to her defense, and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) introduced a resolution this week calling for Boebert to be removed from her committee assignments — the same punishment applied to Greene and Gosar.

“We have a responsibility to show this country that bigotry is unacceptable,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) said during a Wednesday press conference urging party leaders to consider the resolution.

Progressive Squad member Jamaal Bowman said “We cannot normalize this rhetoric and if we do not act accordingly — if leadership does not act accordingly — we are condoning that behavior, not just here in Congress, but we are sending the message across the country and around the world that anti-Muslim hate is OK.”
