Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez knows how to make a scene.
But what happened on the floor of the House of Representatives stunned everyone.
And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez flipped out after an embarrassing rejection.
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy faced the first real test of his speakership.
Before the election, McCarthy pledged to remove Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar from the House Foreign Affairs Committee in response to Omar’s documented history of anti-Semitic remarks.
Omar called Israel an “apartheid state,” questioned the loyalty of Jewish Americans, and repeated anti-Semitic tropes about a cabal of wealthy Jews using their wealth to manipulate American politics.
Kicking Omar off the Foreign Affairs Committee required a vote in Congress.
Since no Democrat would ever vote to hold Omar accountable for her bigotry due to Omar’s connection to the radical left base McCarthy needed to round up 218 Republican votes.
With Republicans holding only 221 seats at the moment due to Florida Congressman Greg Steube’s injury McCarthy could only afford to lose three votes.
And three Republicans — RINO South Carolina Congresswoman Nancy Mace, Indiana Congresswoman Victoria Spartz and Colorado Congressman Ken Buck — announced their opposition to ousting Omar from the Foreign Affairs Committee.
But Kevin McCarthy won the three holdouts over by promising to include language in the resolution allowing future members of Congress facing a vote to kick them off their committees the ability to first appeal to the House Ethics Committee.
With Speaker McCarthy including some due process language all 221 Republicans voted to remove Omar from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
Omar losing this vote did not sit well with her allies.
Fellow “Squad” members Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib pitched fits during the debate preceding the vote.
Ocasio-Cortez demonstrated the absurdity of the Democrats’ position by lying about how this vote to kick Omar off the Foreign Affairs Committee was part of America’s legacy of systemic racism.
During her rant, Ocasio-Cortez — who hails from New York — falsely claimed the real legacy of 9/11 was the racist and sexist attacks on Muslims and women of color.

This was an outrageous lie.
The real legacy of 9/11 is that Islamic terrorists murdered 3,000 innocent Americans.
But since woke leftists like Ocasio-Cortez can only see matters through the prism of identity politics liberals appropriated 9/11 to instead be another of America’s supposed racial sins.
Michigan Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib worked herself up to tears during a hysterical and unhinged rant about Republicans removing Omar from her committee assignment.

Omar, Ocasio-Cortez, and Tlaib all supported Nancy Pelosi when she pulled a similar stunt in the last Congress.
All Republicans did was force Democrats to live under the rules the left set.
