Democrats Give Ilhan Omar a Pass for Her Anti-Semitic Bigotry


Democrats should really be ashamed of themselves.

For all of the high-and-mighty moral preaching they’ve been doing over the past couple of years when it comes to racism, sexism, anti-Semitism, and all the rest, the Democratic Party had the perfect opportunity this week to put their money where their mouth is.

It’s really easy to condemn a Republican. It’s really easy to throw stones and raise money off the sins of Donald Trump. But if you really want to prove to America that you are the “right” political party in social justice terms, you have to speak up when it’s one of your own. Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitic comments gave Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the House Democrats a golden platform upon which to make that point, and they utterly failed.

At the outset of the week, it seemed that Pelosi and Friends were going to do the right thing. They announced their intention to draw up a resolution that, while it would cowardly omit any mention of Omar specifically, would condemn anti-Semitism in the House of Representatives.

But amid a backlash – driven by Twitter and allies of Omar in the House – the leadership backed down. On Thursday, they served up a meaningless resolution condemning “hate” of all kinds, mentioning anti-Semitism only in connection with Islamophobia, white supremacy, and other forms of bigotry that have absolutely nothing to do with the topic at hand. They managed to work in a reference to President Trump’s Charlottesville remarks, but they couldn’t bother to condemn Omar’s “dual loyalty” smears.

If you need any further evidence of how terrible this was, consider this statement of support…from Ilhan Omar herself!

“Today is historic on many fronts,” Omar said. “It’s the first time we have voted on a resolution condemning Anti-Muslim bigotry in our nation’s history. Anti-Muslim crimes have increased 99% from 2014-2016 and are still on the rise. We are tremendously proud to be part of a body that has put forth a condemnation of all forms of bigotry including anti-Semitism, racism, and white supremacy.”

Um, when you draw up a resolution condemning someone for their bigotry, and they celebrate with a statement calling it “historic on many fronts,” you know you took a wrong turn at Albuquerque.

“Today’s resolution vote was a sham put forward by Democrats to avoid condemning one of their own and denouncing vile anti-Semitism,” said Rep. Liz Cheney in a statement. “While I stand whole heartedly against discrimination outlined in this resolution, the language before the House today did not address the issue that is front and center.

“Rep. Omar’s comments were wrong and she has proven multiple times that she embodies a vile, hate-filled, anti-Semitic, anti-Israel bigotry,” Cheney continued. “She deserves to be rebuked, by name, and removed from the House Foreign Affairs Committee so that there is no mistake about the values and priorities that the House stands for.”

Welp, maybe next time.

And given Omar’s track record of anti-Semitic language, “next time” is probably just around the corner.

  1. Democrats are Democrats, Über Alles.
    Lying, Misleading, Deceiving, Obfuscating, Antisemitism, Provocateurs, Prevaricators , Perjurers, Pedophiles, Communists, Homophobic all Democrat résumé enhancements.

  2. Democrats did not give her a pass. They are to scared to try and throw the witch out of Congress because they think the Soros people and other jerks will attack them in the press and polls. Theyare all about their greed and office and do not give a damn about right and wrong. Throw the bitch out .

  3. It is the time in which we must recognize that we are at a cross roads, do we continue to support Israel or are we going to continue to allow the muslim community to turn our policies away from Israel towards the muslim world.
    *
    We must first understand the dire consequences of such change in that policy change.
    *
    By continuing to allow more and more muslims to immigrate here we are endangering ourselves in that they will soon be the dominate population and we will cease the ability to control our own destiny. We will be forced to turn to the religion of islam by shear numbers alone.

    • How wreckless that the US government allowed Muslims to govern in America, especially they did not or refuse to take an oath on the Holy Bible. I won’t be surprised if a bomb blows up in any of our government facilities, since I read an article that Omar maybe investigated for taking classes on terrorism. Besides, Muslims considers anyone of a different religion than Islam to be an infidel. If they become the majority and also America becomes a socialist country, the United States of America will be destroyed.

  4. If the DEMS don’t get rid of Omar quickly then she will destroy them but that’s OK with the RNC voters. It is such a gift Omar is giving President Trump with her controlling the House and the DEMS and creating all the discourse among House members. She is maybe that gift from GOD I have been hoping for to shake things up and move out AOC and her friends quickly. If you have noticed she has only men behind and supporting her. Its time to move all to face the charges that have been published about them.

  5. Political correctness, white guilt, using race and color and sins of the past as an excuse to put people over other people? The dream of judging one not on the color of their skin but on the content of their character is dying before our eyes!

  6. I think your absolutely rights. They are scared of Soros. Either that or they are being paid big bucks to not say anything. They are about their Greed in Office. Sad to say too many of them cannot be trusted.

  8. no…let the evil Muslim bitch keep running her mouth….all it does is damage the Democrat party; and prove that Pelosi has totally lost control. That party is relishing Socialism. They think Russian “interference”, ( of which there was none ) is cause to impeach the President…BUT in the next breathe they want to give ILLEGAL’s from Central American, Mexico and a variety of Muslim countries the right to vote…they want to give the right to vote to people who are NOT American citizens…..where’s the logic there…Oh wait, I get it, they are sure that if they give illegals a guaranteed income, free health care, and education they’ll vote to keep these crooks in office. Disgraceful.

    REMOVE HER FROM OFFICE….HER ALLIGENCE IS NOT FOR AMERICA! 🤯😡👎🤮

  14. I bet you see within a year a support for Palestine and Israel being dropped as an alliance in the middle east. Hate is so prevalent in the democratic party it’s sickening. I hope we as a nation wake up and vote these haters out of office. This is why their should be term limits in government.
