A petition to impeach anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) demolished its goal of 5,000 signatures in just a few days, sending a clear message to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
As of Tuesday night, the petition had earned more than 60,070 signatures — or 121% of the original goal. It's only going to continue to grow.
“Minnesota congresswoman Ilhan Omar has repeatedly strayed beyond all boundaries of human decency,” the petition states. “Most recently Omar was caught on video downplaying the 9-11 terror attacks as ‘some people did something’ in an attempt to defend the creation of Islamic terror-tied organization CAIR.”
The petition continues:
"In addition, Ilhan Omar has made a series of disgraceful Anti-Semitic comments, calling Israel 'Evil.'
In 2016, Omar wrote to a U.S. District Judge on behalf of a man convicted of trying to join ISIS, advocating for a lenient sentence.
In 2017, Omar argued against a bill in the Minnesota State House to outlaw female genital mutilation, a sick and archaic practice.
Ilhan Omar’s pattern of conduct is a disgrace. We demand she be impeached."
Pelosi has apparently lost all control of her party and she is repeatedly forced to explain remarks and actions from the new extreme wing to the Democratic Party, including Omar and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.).
During an interview with CNN, Pelosi actually had the nerve to claim there wasn't a "taint" of anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party, despite the evidence to the contrary that has been stacking up over the last two years.
