As I began to write this article it occurred to me that someone needs to invent a game — call it Which Squad Member Said THIS? — which you could play with your friends in a number of ways. Perhaps as a drinking game or…but I digress. Needless to say, today’s offering could be one of the game cards.


Anyway, let’s first catch up. During a Thursday segment of “The Five,” co-host Kennedy set the table:

The House voted overwhelmingly to establish a Select Committee challenging the Communist Chinese on things like trade, defense, foreign policy, and human rights — 146 Democrats joined the Republicans in backing the measure, but Ayanna Pressley thinks it’s a terrible idea.

I know — try to control your shock and amazement.

The Massachusetts member of the ridiculous Squad, which also includes Mensa member [sarc] Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Minnesota’s anti-Semitic Ilhan Omar, genius Rashida Tlaib (Mich.), and Missouri nutjob Cori Bush, didn’t disappoint when asked for her take.

It’s really clear that this is just a committee that would further embolden anti-Asian rhetoric and hate, and put lives at risk.

When asked if she thought the 146 Democrats who supported the measure were wrong, Pressley smugly replied: “We just see it differently.”

One wonders — this one, anyway — if Ms. Pressley believes the Uyghur people further embolden anti-Asian rhetoric and hate, simply because of the ChiComs’ genocidal war against them. [heavy sarc]


Truth is we should expect nothing more from Ayanna Pressley. A quick read through the following RedState articles pretty much tells you all you need to know about the Squad member’s hypocritical, far-left views.

Here’s more on the new select committee, via Reuters:

The U.S. House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly on Tuesday to create a select committee on China, using one of its first votes since Republicans took control to stress members’ desire to counter Beijing’s growing international influence.

The House voted 365 to 65 in favor of a resolution establishing the Select Committee on the Strategic Competition Between the United States and the Chinese Communist Party, which will investigate the issue and make policy recommendations.

All 65 of the “no” votes came from Democrats, some of whom said they were concerned the Republican-led panel would be too partisan. But 146 other Democrats voted in favor.


There has been friction in U.S.-China relations over issues including the huge U.S. trade deficit, Chinese pressure on Taiwan, and Beijing’s transparency over its handling of COVID-19, which first surfaced in that country.

The new committee will be chaired by Republican Representative Mike Gallagher.


Not to nitpick, but how in the hell can a U.S. congressional investigation into the goings-on of Communist China — Xi Jinping has vowed world dominance by 2049 — be “too partisan”?

Oh, wait, it’s Ayanna Pressley. I’m out.
