On Wednesday, The Middle Eastern Women’s Coalition went to Capitol Hill to call for the resignation of anti-Semitic IIhan Omar. Omar has constantly been making anti-Semitic remarks in recent weeks prompting House Democrats to organize a formal condemnation of anti-Semitism.
(Also… don’t forget IIhan Omar also married her brother. She needs to be removed from office immediately)
The vote was to take place Wednesday but now Democrats are of course delaying the important vote.
The Daily Wire reports: Democrats in the House of Representatives delayed a vote on a resolution that would condemn anti-Semitism following repeated comments from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).
Democratic leadership had planned for the vote to take place this week, The Daily Wire’s Emily Zanotti reported previously, but it has since been delayed so that it calls out more than anti-Semitism, further insulating Omar from criticism rather than calling out her bigotry.
The text of the original resolution didn’t even name Omar or her colleague Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), or their supporter Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and was a “purely symbolic and toothless resolution,” according to The Daily Wire’s Josh Hammer. The original resolution did, however, include a section about specific anti-Semitic phrases such as “the myth of dual loyalty,” which Omar has repeatedly espoused.
Now the Left wants to water down the bill so that it is not a direct shot at the blatant anti-Semites in their ranks. The vote was supposed to take place Wednesday, but now may be pushed back to Thursday or beyond.
“The language is being put together now, and you’ll see it when we have it finished,” House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told reporters, according to Roll Call. Other members of House Democratic leadership told reporters about changes being made to the resolution. Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) said he thinks “they’re going to circulate a revised draft that talks about other forms of religious bigotry.” House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) said he wanted to broaden the resolution to be “anti-hate.”
Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) claimed Democrats stand “strong against anti-Semitism” and “against racism.” Yet, they can barely even call out their own anti-Semitic members and keep them on important committees. Continue Reading
Meanwhile, the leaders of The Middle Eastern Women’s Coalition are rallying against Omar and her hatred for Jews and Sharia Law:
“We came to this country because of the freedoms and rights offered to all citizens regardless of gender under the U.S. Constitution,” states the press release. “We are proud to be American citizens. But we recognize that millions of women in the Middle East don’t enjoy these freedoms, and are forced to live under fanatical and repressive religious regimes, denied basic human rights, freedoms and dignity. Our mission is to give voice to these oppressed women and promote a greater awareness of their suffering. We will not rest until these women are granted full equal rights to those of Middle Eastern men, and treated with honor, respect and dignity.”
