Nancy Mace: Ilhan Omar is a bigot, a racist, and a socialist, but that doesn't mean we cancel her

Here’s a bit of an odd take from Republican Rep. Nancy Mace. She says Republicans aren’t for cancel culture, and even though Rep. Ilhan Omar might be a bigot, a racist, an anti-Semite, and a socialist doesn’t mean she should be booted from the House Foreign Affairs Committee. The logic escapes us too — kicking such a person off of a committee doesn’t seem like canceling; it seems like a good idea.

Fox News reports:

Rep. Nancy Mace, R-S.C., said Friday it would be hypocritical for Republicans to boot Rep. Ilhan Omar D-Minn., from the House Foreign Affairs Committee over anti-Semitic comments, and said doing so amounts to a form of “cancel culture.”

“There’s a First Amendment in this country. We don’t have to agree with everything that members say,” Mace said Friday when Fox News asked if she supported Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s vow to block Omar from the committee.

“I think we have to be very careful about what we are as a constitutional republic,” she said. “I am not a fan of Ilhan Omar. She’s an anti-Semite. She’s a bigot. She’s a racist. She’s a socialist. But that doesn’t mean that we cancel people in this country. Republicans don’t stand for cancel culture. And that’s essentially what this is.”

We can take this two ways: It’s not cancel culture to kick Omar off a committee for being a racist and anti-Semite, or it is cancel culture and in this case should be embraced.

If we’re going to cancel anybody, it should be Omar for all the reasons she listed.
