Most every Republican politician who wins federal or state-level elections always seems to talk a real good game on the campaign trail or when Republicans are in the minority.
But when push comes to shove the overwhelming majority show their true RINO colors and even prove to be total hypocrites.
And now this RINO Congresswoman bent over backwards to give anti-Semitic Democrats like Ilhan Omar a major boost.
About a week before Thanksgiving, as it became more clear that Republicans would, in fact, win the majority in the U.S. House in the Midterms, House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) began a major push to become the next Speaker of the House.
Rep. McCarthy, though, is the ultimate establishment elitist, and as a result, he’s fighting an uphill battle that’s been made especially tough by the GOP’s pathetic Midterm performance.
So the top Republican in Congress chose to try to throw some red meat to the GOP’s conservative base by claiming that if he’s elected Speaker he’ll remove notorious extremist Democrat Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Eric Swalwell (D-CA), and Adam Schiff (D-CA) from their Committee assignments.
McCarthy vowed to remove Rep. Omar on the basis of her past anti-Semitic claims – all of which she’s “unequivocally” apologized for – such as when she used “anti-Semitic tropes and prejudicial accusations” (Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) words) to suggest a secret group of Jewish people buy influence in Washington, D.C. or when she compared Israel and the U.S. to “Hamas… Afghanistan, and the Taliban.”
Meanwhile, Rep. Swalwell’s past connections to Communist Chinese spies and inability to pass simple background checks to secure a security clearance in the private sector, and Rep. Schiff’s repeating of verifiable lies and use of fabricated propaganda in “investigations,” rightly have them in the crosshairs, as well.
But South Carolina RINO Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC), who previously tried to position herself as a conservative during the Tea Party’s heyday in order to get elected, apparently has no problems with Rep. Omar’s anti-Semitism or Reps. Swalwell and Schiff’s outright betrayal of the country and their oaths of office.
In fact, Rep. Mace has announced that she will not vote to remove any Democrats from their Committee assignments because she believes Democrat voters, not Members of Congress, decide who serves on Committees, no matter what offenses may have been committed.
GOP Rep. Nancy Mace says she oppposes kicking Ds off committees. Says “voters get to decide who serves them when they're in Congress, not members of Congress after they've gotten here,” per @MZanona. McCarthy has vowed to kick off Omar, Schiff and Swalwell from their committees

“I’m not going to support it,” Mace told Axios. “I try to be consistent in my values… regardless of who’s in charge.”
Of course, it’s rather interesting to hear Rep. Mace now claim she is trying to be “consistent in my values” by opposing the removal of Reps. Omar, Swalwell, and Schiff – very interesting, in fact.
That’s because not even two years ago, when it was the popular thing for Republicans to do, Rep. Nancy Mace made a big show after Democrats removed Republicans from their Committee assignments, to claim specifically that she would only consider supporting the removal of her Republican colleagues if Democrats first did the same to…. Reps. Omar and Swalwell.
You honestly can’t make this level of hypocrisy up.
“I’d consider a motion of this nature the same day Speaker Pelosi takes the same action against her own members,” Mace attempted to brag. “Members like: … Rep. Ilhan Omar, who spread anti-Semitic conspiracy theories that America’s support for Israel is the result of bribes; or Rep. Eric Swalwell, who carried on a relationship with a Chinese spy while handling classified documents.”
So when it was politically advantageous but unlikely, Rep. Mace supported removing Reps. Omar and Swalwell for the exact reasons Rep. McCarthy has proposed removing them now.
But now that the corporate-controlled media is threatening to trash Republicans – what else is new – who vote to remove the Democrats from their Committees, she suddenly tucks tail and starts talking about being “consistent in my values?”
Guess Rep. Mace is only “consistent in my values” when it doesn’t involve actually standing up and opposing dangerous anti-Semitism.
At least Rep. Nancy Mace can now sleep well knowing she has the full support of Kanye West, though.
