Republican lawmaker goes full snowflake after Muslim lawmaker mocks his bigotry


Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.) made a bigoted complaint about Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) being placed on the House Foreign Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, and then threw a hissy fit after she called him out for it.

Omar is the first Somali-American to elected to Congress. And she is also a Muslim, which Zeldin is apparently uncomfortable with, which is why he decided to whine about it on Twitter and suggested that Democrats should be ashamed of giving her a committee assignment.

Zeldin could have refrained from attacking Omar, but he didn’t. Instead, he demonstrated his bigotry and racism.

Upon finding out about the tweet, Omar, who has no problem taking on her Republican colleagues, responded by predicting Zeldin will “lose his marbles” because she is standing up to his bullying and even shared a laugh with a Twitter user who joked that Zeldin just found out the Muslim ban doesn’t prevent Muslim lawmakers from serving on committees.

Of course, Zeldin did exactly what Omar said he would do. He took to Twitter and went full snowflake by accusing Omar of supporting terrorists and being anti-Semitic.

Twitter users were not amused by this unprofessional behavior by a lawmaker, and proceeded to humiliate him.

Zeldin should be ashamed of his behavior toward a duly elected member of Congress. Omar’s religion does not define her and it’s outrageous that he would suggest she’s anti-Semitic or a supporter of terrorists because she just so happens to be a Muslim. It would be like saying Zeldin must support the KKK because he’s a Christian. Clearly, he’s just another Republican who needs to be ousted from office in 2020. And when he is, Omar will still be there fighting for the people of Minnesota and bringing much-needed diversity to Congress.
