(NewsReady.com) – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is known for her controversial statements. In recent weeks, she’s accused a sitting senator of trying to murder her. She’s said Republicans only care about white supremacy. Recently, AOC even said Donald Trump supporters planted bombs on Capitol Hill without any proof.
Conservatives are now pointing out that she should lose her assignments if the Democratic Party is going to play fair.
On Thursday, February 4, House Democrats voted to strip Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) of her committee assignments. They decided to do it because of what they believe are outrageous comments from the freshman congresswoman. But, if that is their new standard, doesn’t that mean AOC and other Democrats should also lose their committee seats?
In two years, Rs might be able to strip Omar or AOC or Swalwell of their committee seats. https://t.co/NX8VtkW42b

Rep. Brian Babin (R-TX) even introduced a resolution to strip Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) of her committee seats for her long history of anti-Semitic comments.
Yes. If the Democrat Majority wants to go down this road, they should start by dealing with their own members who have been at this before and AFTER their election to Congress. https://t.co/YIRhoNOf8L pic.twitter.com/r0yBN2aGFx

What’s fair is fair. If the Left makes this standard the norm, they better start cleaning out their own house first.
