Republicans introduce measure to censure AOC & other ‘squad’ members for ‘inciting anti-Semitic attacks’ in US

Three Republican lawmakers are seeking to censure and condemn Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-New York) and fellow members of her liberal ‘squad’ for their controversial comments about Israel and Palestine.

In the resolution seeking to censure the lawmakers, introduced by Reps. Michael Waltz (R-Florida), Jim Banks (R-Indiana) and Claudia Tenney (R-New York) on Monday, multiple incidents were cited of members of the unofficial ‘squad’ of liberal lawmakers – Reps. Ayanna Pressley (D-Massachusetts), Rashida Tlaib (D-Michigan), Ilhan Omar (D-Minnesota), and Ocasio-Cortez – “defending” terrorist organizations and helping to “incite” anti-Semitic violence.

The lawmakers point to recent comments by Omar that stirred controversy even within her own party. Earlier this month, the congresswoman was accused of equating the US and Israel with groups such as Hamas and the Taliban. She later clarified the intention of her comment, made on Twitter, saying she was referring to the alleged war crimes involving both countries and groups that are currently being investigated, and called the pushback against her “shameful.”
