Gop Rep. Waltz Renames Squad To Hamas Caucus

Recently, GOP Rep. Michael Waltz of Florida blasted Nancy Pelosi and members of ‘The Squad,’ a group of young left-wingers belonging to the Democratic Party. Consisting of Ayanna Presley, Ilhan Omar, Cori Bush, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Jamaal Bowman and Rashida Tlaib, the group was renamed by Waltz, giving them the new moniker the ‘Hamas Caucus.’ 

House speaker Nancy Pelosi said the nickname is “dangerous” and even defended Omar for her comments comparing the United States and Israel to terrorist organizations Hamas and Taliban. Waltz found the comments made by Omar very disturbing, especially for a former Green Beret like him who has seen what those extremist monsters can do.

“Speaker Pelosi is dodging the issue and ignoring the fact that members of her own conference are defending terrorism. Enough is enough. Plenty of Democrats agree,” Waltz stated in his tweet.

In an interview with Fox News’ Sandra Smith, Waltz recounted that time this Democrat politician irked her party mates with her anti-Israel sentiments.

“This isn’t just a one-time incident, we have Rep. [Rashida] Tlaib [D-Mich.], comparing Israel to Apartheid, we’ve had a series of incidences in 2019 that led to another censure resolution. This is a trend, and this is why I think you’re seeing my Democratic colleagues of Jewish-American background also saying enough is enough, it’s time to speak out, and it’s time to stop this,” Waltz said.

Waltz and his fellow GOP leaders filed a resolution to censure members of “The Squad.” In an official statement, Waltz touched on the anti-Semitism has been spreading after the exchange of rockets between Israel and Palestine.

“We cannot turn a blind eye to Members of Congress openly defending terrorist attacks by Hamas against our close ally Israel nor their dangerous rhetoric which has contributed to anti-Semitic attacks across the country,” Waltz said in the statement. 

“I’ve seen firsthand gross atrocities against women and ethnic minorities at the hands of the Taliban. I’ve personally been fired upon by terrorists hiding behind women and children and seen the Taliban place suicide vests on teenagers,” Waltz continued.

“Last week, Congresswoman Ilhan Omar compared the United States and Israel to Hamas and the Taliban,” Tenney said. “Sadly, this is not out of character for ‘The Squad,’ who have made a habit of trafficking in anti-Semitic rhetoric.  Their actions have been completely unchecked by Democratic leadership in the House, even as vile attacks against Jewish Americans are rising,” Waltz added.
