The Democratic Party seems well on its way to being an official hate group.
A major source of contention within the party is whether or not to condemn anti-Semitism.
It’s tearing the party apart this week after Rep. Omar’s most recent display of rampant anti-Semitism.
From Fox News:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is “taken aback” by the growing dissent and anger among rank-and-file Democrats over a possible resolution to formally condemn anti-Semitism, a Democratic source told Fox News on Wednesday — highlighting Pelosi’s tenuous grip on control over the House and underscoring the growing power of the party’s nascent far-left progressive wing.
Pelosi even reportedly walked out of a meeting Wednesday with Democrat House members, setting down her microphone and telling attendees, “Well if you’re not going to listen to me, I’m done talking.”
The stalled resolution originated after freshman Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, for at least the second time in recent months, ignited an uproar for echoing tropes critics have deemed anti-Semitic. In February, she suggested on Twitter that supporters of Israel have been bought. The congresswoman then accused American supporters of Israel of pushing people to have “allegiance to a foreign country.”
Omar — who also tweeted in 2012 that “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel” — refused to address questions on Wednesday about accusations that she’s anti-Semitic.
Meanwhile, debate over how to address her latest remarks has overtaken House Democrats in recent days. …
There’s more, from The Daily Caller:
New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defended Omar on Wednesday, saying, “Well, I think my real concern here is that there’s a disturbing pattern of these remarks coming from the Republican Party. It’s not treated the same way,” Ocasio-Cortez told reporters.
When a reporter told her that Republican Iowa Rep. Steve King was condemned by Congress in January for remarks he made to The New York Times about white supremacy, Ocasio-Cortez alluded to the number of years King had been in Congress before the House voted to formally rebuke him.
“I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is okay to push for allegiance to a foreign country,” Omar said at an event over a week ago, referring to Israel’s advocates. …
According to the House Majority Leader, Democratic leadership has not nailed down a date for a vote on the resolution this week, saying, “We’re working on language.“
Democrats found themselves arguing with one another Wednesday over the resolution’s language, Politico reported. Democratic Washington Rep. Pramila Jayapal, a progressive caucus leader, did not want Omar’s name in the resolution, while a number of Jewish members reportedly pushed to include it. …
That doesn’t sound like a party united. And it certainly doesn’t sound like a party ready to condemn hate and anti-Semitism.
Quite the contrary. It sounds like a party being run by children who are determined to win at any cost.
