Op/Ed: The House has four speakers, and none are named Nancy Pelosi

Chip Roy had an op/ed published on the Washington Examiner about how members of the so called “squad,” the new face of the Democrat Party, are actually running the House:

The self-proclaimed “squad,” Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressley run the show in the People’s House. They’ve flanked Pelosi from the Left and stolen her mantle as the leader of the so-called progressives…

For her part, Omar must have Pelosi and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer under a spell. Both Pelosi and Hoyer have been vocal supporters of Israel for decades. But since Omar came to town they can’t even condemn her naked anti-Semitism and even put her on the House Foreign Affairs Committee to spew Hamas talking points. To their credit, Pelosi and Hoyer did try to condemn Omar’s now infamous anti-Semitic tweet, “It’s all about the Benjamins baby.”

But something went awry. The resolution condemning anti-Semitism somehow transformed to a watered-down resolution condemning “hate.” Omar got the message: She can say any hateful thing she wants without reproach! It didn’t take her long to suggest American servicemembers were “terrorists,” blame the U.S. for devastation in Venezuela, and share Hamas propaganda on Twitter. Neither Pelosi, nor anyone from her party’s leadership, has lifted a finger to stop it. Why? They are terrified.

Stand with Chip!
