It’ll be great if they completely self destruct and end up devouring each other.
Democrat internal polling must be horrendous for Rep. Nancy Pelosi to openly call out Rep. Ilhan Omar like that without mentioning her name. It’s almost what she did over a week ago when they made that broad statement against hate speech.
I think another reason why Pelosi and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer gave pro-Israel speeches is that President Trump called out the Democratic Party as anti-Israel coupled with major 2020 Democratic candidates skipping the conference, it looked bad.
You can’t fix a problem until you acknowledge it’s existence and Omar and her Marxist Caucus will continue to grow in power until they are too big to be stopped.
When you truly don’t stand for something you can’t defend it. You can’t change your stance on an issue without people noticing. And Nancy, these days, people notice everything. Your Democratic party has become the party of anti-semitism, anti-American, anti-laws/constitution. There’s no way of getting around it or covering it up.
What you did in the video below is a feel-good moment, but it will be forgotten before next Wednesday.
Without mentioning her by name, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) took a swing at fellow House Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) for her recent string of anti-Semitic comments, declaring at AIPAC on Tuesday that “to be anti-Semitic is to be anti-American.”
Since being sworn in as a member of the House earlier this year, Omar has found herself at the center of two different anti-Semitic controversies, the last of which caused the House to condemn Omar for suggesting that Jewish Americans have “dual loyalty.”
“In our Democratic societies, we should welcome legitimate debate on how best to honor our values and to advance our priorities without questioning loyalty or patriotism,” Pelosi said. “This month, the full House came together to condemn the anti-Semitic myth of dual loyalty and all forms of bigotry.”
“I simply declare: to be anti-Semitic is to be anti-American. It has no place in our country,” Pelosi said.
So how is what Pelosi said different from what Judge Jeanine Pirro said? It sounds like they both believe Omar’s fidelity to our constitution is highly questionable.
Talk is pretty cheap Nancy, and as everyone knows, actions speak much louder than words, but we don’t see much in the way of action from you. It’s almost as though you are scared of your members. Just saying.
Omar responded later in the day claiming that the BDS movement was an exercise of free speech.
“A condemnation for people that want to exercise their First Amendment rights is beneath any leader, and I hope that we find a better use of language when we are trying to speak as members of Congress that are sworn to protect the Constitution,” Omar said. [excerpt via Free Beacon]
I think what would satisfy a lot of Americans is that Omar should lose her security clearance by having it revoked. Then she will not be able to serve on these critical committees and can sit on the sidelines until she can love this country.
Omar is factually incorrect when she says, “A condemnation for people that want to exercise their First Amendment rights is beneath any leader.”
There’s an important difference between condemning a particular position and attempting to outlaw a particular position, and Omar is attempting to conflate the two to disarm her opposition. But Nancy is just as free to express her condemnation of Omar’s position as Omar is to express her opinion in the first place; both of these are simple acts of free speech.
Nancy is in no way suggesting that Omar’s speech should be banned, in no way suggesting that Omar’s First Amendment right to free speech being violated, she is simply saying that in her opinion Omar’s speech is Anti-American.
Now, on other occasions, Nancy has suggested that such anti-American positions be grounds for denying a person or organization federal funding, but even that is not censorship; it is rather merely declining to foster people or organizations advocating such positions. Declining to advance an opinion is in no way the same as actively censoring it.
Just because Omar has a right to hold a position does not in any way mean anyone else (including the government) is obligated to advance that position; that’s just stupid. Omar is just wrong, on this point, as she is on so many others.
The lengths the Democrats go to prove they’re ‘good people’ demonstrates their inability to perceive ‘good’ versus evil thereby making them just as evil.
