BREAKING: House Democrats to Vote on Resolution Condemning Radical Anti-Semite Rep. Ilhan Omar
House Democrats will vote on Wednesday on the House floor in a resolution condemning radical anti-Semite Ilhan Omar.
Anti-Semitic Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar was back in the news this week for a new batch of anti-Jew remarks.
The Muslim Democrat from Minnesota revived an old trope about divided loyalties among Jewish-Americans when she criticized the idea that it’s “OK for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country.”
Jewish Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY) lashed out at Omar Friday in a statement.
Rep. Ilhan Omar is a runaway train for Democrats.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi and top Democrats will take floor action Wednesday in response to controversial remarks by Rep. Ilhan Omar about Israel, the second such rebuke of the freshman Democrat from party leaders in recent weeks.
Pelosi and other senior Democrats are drafting a resolution to address the controversy, which ballooned over the weekend following a public clash between Omar and senior Jewish lawmakers.
The resolution, which is still being finalized, comes after a backlash from top Democrats who accused Omar of anti-Semitism for referring to pro-Israel advocates’ “allegiance to a foreign country.”
Omar’s remarks are just the latest in a series of comments she’s made that many of her Democratic colleagues say are blatantly anti-Semitic and must be retracted.
