Congressional Democrats abused their power.
Liberals and the media elites cheered.
But Democrats will live to regret the day that Nancy Pelosi crossed a major line.
Eric Swalwell, Ilhan Omar, and Maxine Waters are going to have to deal with the consequences.
They’ll only have themselves and Speaker Pelosi to blame.
Nancy Pelosi could have prevented it.
Democrats voted to censure Arizona Congressman Paul Gosar last Wednesday.
Gosar tweeted out an anime video – a cartoon – to express his opposition to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Joe Biden’s open-border agenda.
Nancy Pelosi caved to the Squadies who demanded Democrats a censure vote over a cartoon.
Since the video showed a character with Gosar’s face superimposed on its body swinging a sword at another character with Ocasio-Cortez’s face superimposed on its body, Ocasio-Cortez claimed the video was a death threat against her.
Of course, given that Democrats have the majority in the House, the censure motion passed and Gosar was booted from his committee assignments.
Normally, House members get their committee assignments from their own Party.
But Democrats took an unprecedented step when they removed Gosar from his committees.
And House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy ripped Democrats for abusing their power.
“Let me be clear. I do not condone violence, and Representative Gosar had echoed that sentiment. The video was deleted, but Democrats won’t listen because they will do anything to distract from the failures of one-party rule in one year destroying a nation,” McCarthy stated.
Since Republicans are heavily favored to win back the majority in 2022, McCarthy hinted that the GOP would begin booting Democrats off their committee assignments in 2023.
“Their actions today and the past have forever changed the way the House operates. It means that the minority rights that have served this body as well are the things of the past. And furthermore, it means that under the Pelosi precedent, all of the members that I have mentioned earlier will need the approval of a majority to keep those positions in the future,” McCarthy added.
The first three Democrats McCarthy and the GOP will remove are Eric Swalwell for sleeping with a Communist Chinese spy, Ilhan Omar for her anti-Semitic rhetoric, and Maxine Waters for inciting violence against Trump administration officials.
