In a bid to cover up bigoted remarks made by radical Muslim Democrats, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has lost control of rank-and-file members who refuse to sign on to a resolution condemning antisemitism. That should tell voters all they need to know about what leftist extremists truly represent, and it ought to make everyday Americans sick to their stomachs.
Since the new Congress convened, upstart Muslim extremist Democrats such as Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar and Michigan Rep. Rashida Harbi Tlaib have not been shy about their profound hatred of Jewish people or America’s ally Israel. Rep. Omar has gone on the record calling for a repudiation of the Jewish State, and made brazen remarks that mirror those of the Democrat-founded KKK and radicalism of terror-supporting nations such as Iran.
American Jews within the party such as Bronx Rep. Eliot Engel have been hushed after calling one of Omar’s statements a “vile anti-Semitic slur.”
“Her comments were outrageous and deeply hurtful, and I ask that she retract them, apologize, and commit to making her case on policy issues without resorting to attacks that have no place in the Foreign Affairs Committee or the House of Representatives,” Engel said.
Speaker Pelosi has been cautious not to embrace the antisemitic rhetoric, but has also not denounced it. Instead, she makes lame excuses.
“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 said.
Pelosi’s attempt to mask the bigotry that has been rekindled in the Democratic Party has fallen on deaf ears among the new voices controlling the message. Rep. Tlaib and New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) are on the attack claiming that Omar is a victim and should not apologize for her hate speech. AOC has quickly emerged as the self-proclaimed “boss” of the Democratic Party, and appears to be in a death match with Pelosi for total control.
“We’re working on a resolution. We’ll see when we bring it to the floor that we’ll again speak out against anti-Semitism, anti-Islamophobia, anti-white supremacy and all the forms that it takes. Our country has no place for this,” Pelosi added in an attempt to quell the controversy.
But her proposal to fellow Democrats “erupted into a full-scale brawl” according to even the notoriously left-leaning Washington Post. Some “protested plans to vote this week on a resolution condemning religious hatred, a measure prompted by Omar’s comments last week suggesting supporters of Israel have “allegiance to a foreign country.”
Democratic leadership has repeatedly tried to paint President Donald Trump as a bigot and the main cause for the rise in antisemitic attacks in the U.S. The propaganda has fallen well short of the mark as the president’s own daughter and son-in-law are Jewish, and Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu touts their personal and professional relationship as among the closest.
And if the company one keeps is a reflection on the person, then Democrats may want to get new friends before voters make their choice in the 2020 elections. To date, some of the most vile anti-Semites on the American landscape have rallied around the freshmen Democrats’ despicable attacks on Jewish people. Pelosi suffered blistering criticism from liberal bigots such as as the Nation of Islam’s Louis Farrakhan, and Linda Sarsour.
“Nancy is a typical white feminist upholding the patriarchy doing the dirty work of powerful white men,” Sarsour posted on Facebook. “God forbid the men are upset — no worries, Nancy to the rescue to stroke their egos.”
Louis Farrakhan, widely recognized as one the most infamous hatemongers today, also threw his undying support behind Omar’s anti-Israel attacks.
“Israel and AIPAC pays off senators and congressmen to do their bidding, so you’re not lying, so if you’re not lying. Stop laying down. You were sent there by the people to shake up that corrupt House. Shake it up,” Farrakhan said. “Sweetheart, don’t do that. Pardon me for calling you ‘sweetheart,’ but you do have a sweet heart. You sure are using it to shake the government up, but you have nothing to apologize for.”
The Democratic Party has a long history of bigotry, starting with their southern slave-owning roots to passing Jim Crow Laws and founding the KKK. The bigotry has been kept neatly out of sight in recent years, although Democratic policies have harmed minorities. This new class of Democrats appears more than willing to openly embrace the party’s anti-Semitism. They are finally being honest about their bigotry.
