It is really funny to see how the hardcore Marxist wing of the Democrat Party has backed Ilhan Omar on her very accurate comments about Israel and Jews with dual loyalty. She has garnered enough support where it has made it impossible for Nancy Pelosi to push a a straight vote condemning anti-Semitism. Instead, she’s been forced to change the resolution to a resolution opposing “hatred” in general.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that Democrats plan to hold a vote in the House on opposing all “forms of hatred,” after days of infighting within the caucus led to the revision of language in a resolution originally intended to condemn anti-Semitism.
But Pelosi, during a press conference, said the resolution won’t single out Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar, who provoked the outcry over comments seen as anti-Semitic.
“It’s not about her,” Pelosi said of Omar. “It’s about these forms of hatred.”
Text of the seven page resolution was released Thursday afternoon. It condemns anti-Semitism, anti-Muslim discrimination and bigotry against minorities as “hateful expressions of intolerance that are contrary to the values and aspirations of the United States.”
The resolution doesn’t mention Omar by name, but it says “imputations of dual loyalty threaten American democracy and have no place in American political discourse.” Omar has been accused of spreading that stereotype about American Jews in her recent comments.
The resolution also references the 2017 white supremacist violence in Charlottesville, the 2015 murder of black congregants at a Charleston church and the 2018 murder of worshippers at a Pittsburgh synagogue.
This is quite the defeat for the Jews. Sure, the resolution includes a statement about anti-Semitism, but it doesn’t classify anti-Semitism as a special and unique form of hate.
But how do imputations of dual loyalty by Jews threaten American democracy? If anything dual loyalty of any kind is a threat to democracy. When you have a group of Jews who are more loyal to Israel than they are to America involved as deeply in the political process as they are, it is a valid concern that needs to be addressed.
But it’s really funny seeing how people like Omar are creating all sorts of chaos in the Democrat Party. Especially over a subject like Israel. I hope this continues and gets worse. The Democrats are really starting to cannibalize each other and it’s fun to watch.
