Trump Calls Democrats ‘Anti-Jewish’ for Bipartisan Resolution

Rep. Ilhan Omar leaves a Foreign Affairs Committee hearing in Washington on Thursday

I have written many times about the normalization of anti-Semitism on the Left and specifically about the recent anti-Semitic statements from Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and the disgusting excuses for her being pushed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and leading Democratic presidential candidates.

It is unclear whether the text will mention Rep. Ilan Omar (D-MN), whose latest anti-Jewish remarks prompted the House of Representatives to pass an anti-hate resolution Thursday.

President Donald Trump declared Friday that the Democratic Party had become "anti-Israel" and "anti-Jewish", adding that a recent Democrat-led House vote condemning hate was "disgraceful". It's her belief that supporting the Jewish state, a longtime ideological and geopolitical ally of the United States, is an act of dual loyalty - either by Jews or by others who, as Omar might say, have been "hypnotized" to do "evil".

Omar and her Democratic "Progressive" friends have played the race, religion and feminist cards since Omar, of Minneapolis, and Tlaib, from Detroit, became the first two Muslim women in Congress. Elizabeth Warren of MA said, "Branding criticism of Israel as automatically anti-Semitic has a chilling effect on our public discourse and makes it harder to achieve a peaceful solution between Israelis and Palestinians".

"You know, we have seen now the Democrats struggle to simply put on the floor a resolution that condemns Representative Omar by name, that strips her from her membership on the House Foreign Affairs Committee", Cheney said during an interview on Fox News's America's Newsroom on Friday.

The vote on the resolution, which was delayed to include Latinos to its list of "traditionally persecuted peoples" targeted by white supremacists, was a reaction to the uproar caused by Minnesota freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar's criticism of Israel. She was accused of anti-Semitism again a few weeks later for comments made during an event at a Washington, D.C., bookstore.

Chicago police looking for source of leaks in Smollett case
While the odds are seemingly stacked against Smollett, Latifah isn't the only star who has rallied their support for the actor. Smollett had gotten into hot water back on January 29, when he'd been rushed to Northwestern Hospital for treatment of wounds.

When asked why Omar wasn't named in the resolution, Pelosi said because "It's not about her". "I think that is what he is doing here", Kucinich said.

He went on to take aim at President Donald Trump for his campaign's closing TV ad during the 2016 race.

The view, according to one of the aides, is that had all Republicans voted for the resolution, it would have stayed exclusively a Democratic issue.

"Today is historic on many fronts".

The original resolution focused more on denouncing anti-Semitism but morphed into a resolution condemning various other forms of bigotry against minorities in the U.S. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y. "If that member had been a Republican, that member's name would be in this resolution and this resolution would be all about condemning anti-Semitism, and it would be done so forcefully".

She continued: "Our nation is having a hard conversation and we believe this is great progress".
