Texas Republican Goes To Bat for QAnon Congresswoman
Babin represents Texas Congressional District 36, an area that includes Hardin, Jasper, Liberty, Newton, Orange, Polk and Tyler counties, as well as small portions of Chambers and Harris counties.
Faizan Syed is executive director at the DFW chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) nonprofit group.
He said Babin’s move against Omar amounts to “whataboutism,” arguing that Omar “is nothing close to Representative Greene and the statements she’s made.”
“It’s an ugly, Islamophobic, racist tactic used by — unfortunately — a growing number of Republicans in order to justify the absolutely unacceptable statements made by some members of their party,” Syed told the Observer.
