Report: Democrats in ‘Full-Scale Brawl’ over Antisemitism Resolution

 

House Democrats cannot agree on a resolution to condemn antisemitism, and a closed-door meeting Wednesday to discuss the issue reportedly collapsed into infighting as rank-and-file members challenged the party leadership.

Breitbart: The meeting “erupted into a full-scale brawl Wednesday,” the Washington Post reported, as some “protested plans to vote this week on a resolution condemning religious hatred, a measure prompted by [Minnesota Rep. Ilhan] Omar’s comments last week suggesting supporters of Israel have “allegiance to a foreign country” (original link).

Omar, who apologized last month for antisemitic comments, set off a new crisis last week when she accused pro-Israel Americans of “allegiance to a foreign country.” Democrat leaders, who have tried to portray President Donald Trump as a bigot, tried to manage the political fallout by promising a vote on a resolution condemning antisemitism on Wednesday. The resolution did not mention Omar specifically, and also condemned anti-Muslim prejudice.

The Post noted: “Initially the measure targeted only anti-Semitism, with some Democrats pushing for a direct rebuke of Omar, but by Tuesday night — facing backlash from members not on board with the plan — leaders decided to expand it to include anti-Muslim bias.” Even that was not good enough for the Democratic caucus.

In contrast, a resolution passed in January — and supported by Republicans — to condemn racist remarks by Rep. Steve King (R-IA) mentioned King specifically in the opening sentence. Republicans also stripped King of his committee assignments. Democrat leaders have declined to remove Omar from her committees — including the House Foreign Affairs Committee, where she oversees U.S.-Israel relations, among other contentious issues.

Speaker Pelosi could not commit Wednesday to a date for a vote on a resolution condemning antisemitism, and said that she did not think Omar’s comments had been “intentionally” antisemitic — even though Omar repeated them after House Foreign Affairs Committee chair declared publicly that Omar had used a “vile anti-Semitic slur.”

  1. It seems Omar’s buddies at the black caucus had to escort/protect her out of the room as people were yelling back and forth. And they tried to protect her from pesky reporters. LOL!

  2. Is it wrong that I hope someone snatched her hijab and threw it in her face? lol.
    Dem fights are the best!

    Oh by the way, that Steve King (R-IA) was a travesty. NYT set him up and the retard RINOS sopped that shit up with a biscuit. The reporter misquoted him and then said he had no notes or recordings . Oopsies.

    But, enough about our fucking idiots,
    let’s watch the Dems some more. 😀

  3. Everyone relax….the liberal, communistic, Marxist pieces of shit will dictate to everyone just what is to be condemned and what is not!!

    After all, they are the anointed ones.

    “Hey, Mel Gibson!”

    “Free Dumb!”

  5. Think about the “family” dynamics at play within their own party! If there’s anyone who knows how to push all your buttons….

    Acrimony hardly begins to describe what they are capable of with each other. It’s all too wonderful.

  6. The Democrat purge of anyone who is not a committed anti Christian and socialist activist from their ranks is beginning.

    It wouldn’t surprise me to see even Pelosi and her followers set aside and soon after removed.

    Don’t expect the Republicans to make conservative gains from this, far too many of them are sympathetic or even supportive of the same goals.

  8. “BREAKING: HOUSE DEMS REACH COMPROMISE. ISSUE RESOLUTION CONDEMNING ISRAEL.”

    …and President Trump, @Aaron Burr, don’t forget. I’m sure that Schiff will see this as Trump colluding with Russia to attack a poor, innocent Muslima and convene three separate committees to subpoena Trump’s elementary school crossing guard to get them to compose a pretty tale…
