Senator calls on House to pick speaker, immediately condemn ‘sickening’ statements by Squad Democrats 

Sen Mullin responds after Reps Tlaib, Omar quickly blame Israel for Gaza hospital blast

Fox reports:

“On ‘FOX & Friends’ on Wednesday, Sen. Markwayne Mullin, R-Okla., went after far-left members of Congress who quickly blamed Israel for an explosion at a Gaza hospital. Mullin called Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s, D-Mich., response ‘sickening,’ and lamented that the Republican-led House cannot bring forth a resolution to condemn her statements because the chamber remains without a speaker.

MARKWAYNE MULLIN: It’s sickening. And this right here is why Kevin McCarthy should still be speaker of the House because we should be pushing back on Tlaib right now. We should be exposing her bias towards Hamas and her support for them. And there should be a resolution on the floor right now that is basically silencing her. This is absurd for her to go out there and defend … a known terrorist organization that has been recognized by the United States as a terrorist organization and then go against one of our strongest allies in Israel. And there is no recourse for this. It’s absolutely ridiculous and sad, but this is what happens when you don’t have leadership in the Republican Party as a speaker right now. This is why it’s a disaster what Matt Gaetz and those eight [Republicans] did by casting out Kevin McCarthy, because we should be standing strong right now, not infighting and fighting with each other.’

Tlaib’s latest claim about Israel was contradicted Tuesday by the country’s military spokesperson.”

Mullin is right about calling out Tlaib. And the need for House Republicans to get on the stick, elect a Speaker, and get on with business.

What has become crystal clear now that the Hamas war on Israel is raging is that there are those out there who are decidedly anti-Semitic. And that anti-Semitism is appearing in one American city after another, not to mention one American university or college after another.

The Squad (so-called) has made itself the very embodiment of anti-Semitism. For the House to be unable to deal with that anti-Semitism is not good.

Not good at all.
