Democrats are grappling with a very serious problem in 2021 — having to play a game of chess with unremarkable Republicans. Strip Marjorie Taylor Greene hers commission’s duties, turn on Paul Gosar with one murder fantasies About Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Discipline him, come here Lauren Boebert with a deeply unscrupulous and bigoted fix of Ilhan Omar. Because the minority leader Kevin McCarthy has long since made it clear that there are unlimited For the heinous behavior he will tolerate, Democrats have held the responsibility to hold GOP lawmakers accountable for their bad behavior. Unfortunately, yes so many, so much of the Republican Party behaved badly.
Indeed, acting so reckless and outrageous that the majority of Democrats are forced to do something is becoming something badge of honor in the GOP — a way to distinguish group members who are loyal to Donald Trump and real people, really loyal to Donald Trump. That poses a problem plaguing Democrats: How do you reprimand someone who really enjoys punishment? “This is hard because these people are doing it for the public,” said Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi speak this week. “There is a judgment that has to be made on how we contribute to their fundraising and their publicity about how obnoxious and disgusting they are.”
When asked Friday from reporters, McCarthy admitted argumentative regarding Gosar, Boebert and Taylor Greene are things that Republicans “don’t want to deal with” before midterms, but revolve around talking about inflation and gas prices.
A growing number of Democrats are demanding that Boebert be removed from her committee duties because of the relentless attacks on Omar, a progressive member of the House of Representatives whom Trump and right-wingers say are often targeted with anti-Muslim conspiracy theories and secret codes. The most recent episode started last month, titled The House voted removed Gosar from his committee for posting an anime video of him killing Ocasio-Cortez. Speaking in defense of her colleague, Boebert called Omar a member of the “Jihad Squad” and suggested that the Minnesota congresswoman was married to her brother. Days later, at an event in Colorado, Boebert said her xenophobic digging at Omar on the House floor “wasn’t my first ‘Jihad Squad’ moment” and included a story line. implying that the Democratic Party is a terrorist. “I was getting into the elevator with one of my employees and he and I were leaving the Capitol … and I saw a Capitol police officer rushing to the elevator. I saw the worry on his face,” Boebert said. “I looked to the left and there she was, Ilhan Omar, and I said, ‘Well, she doesn’t have a backpack – we’ll be fine.’
Omar said the anecdote is “Create” and condemn Boebert for her obstinate remarks. Boebert on Twitter sorry, called the controversy her comments caused a “distraction,” and said she had contacted Omar’s office. But the comments are part of the pattern; right after the video of the November 20 event another video Boebert’s emergence made similar Islamophobic backpack jokes to a crowd in September. Boebert called Omar on Monday; according to Omar, Boebert refuse to apologize and instead “duplicate her eloquence.” The Minnesota representative has since received anti-Muslim murder threats, one of which she played during Tuesday’s press conference calling for Boebert to be punished.
McCarthy, of course, was completely useless on this—seeming much more concerned with appease the right of MAGA—And some Republicans who spoke out against Boebert have faced nasty attacks from her allies. When request Friday on Boebert’s muslim comments and why it’s so hard for him to condemn something that’s clearly wrong, McCarthy suggested that Republicans “are for the anyone and everyone who aspires to freedom and supports freedom of religion”; At moment later shown he will not remove Boebert from her committee duties, citing her apology to Omar.
