With the Democrats’ descent into extremism comes their apparent, newfound alliance with anti-Semitism. Rep. Ilhan Omar has dominated headlines over the past few weeks due to her commentary about Israel and assertions that Jewish people are paying off politicians to support them.
The lackluster condemnation from the Democrats has also raised concerns about where they stand on the glaring anti-Semitism of Ilhan Omar, as documented by Townhall.
Speaker Pelosi on Omar’s Anti-Semitism
During recent remarks to the press, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi affirmed that her chambers are working on resolutions against anti-Semitism. However, when asked about whether or not Omar would issue an apology for her own anti-Semitic remarks, Pelosi essentially stated that the congresswoman lacked the awareness to know what anti-Semitic rhetoric sounds like. This is interesting; how can the House pass resolutions which denounce anti-Semitism when they have an anti-Semite within their own chambers?
Pelosi’s remarks on the anti-Semitism of Ilhan Omar are as follows:
“She may need to explain that she did not — It’s up to her to explain. But I do not believe she understood the full weight of the words.”
The Speaker of the House then alleged that Omar is not an anti-Semite…despite her pattern of writing and making anti-Semitic remarks:
“I feel confident that her words were not based on any anti-Semitic attitude, but that she didn’t have a full appreciation of how they landed on other people where these words have a history and a cultural impact that might have been unknown to her.”
Pelosi may not believe that Omar is an anti-Semite, but if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it’s a duck. The fact that the House Speaker is unable to curtail extremism amongst the people she is supposed to be leading speaks volumes to the disorganized and chaotic state of the Democrats.
