Ilhan Omar just forced Nancy Pelosi to do the unthinkable

Ilhan Omar ignited a national controversy with her anti-Semitic remarks.

It created a defining moment for the Democrat Party.

And Omar just forced Nancy Pelosi to do the unthinkable.

Pelosi knows she has a problem on her hands.

Omar’s bigoted remarks threaten to brand the Democrats as the party of hatred and intolerance.

So she teed up a resolution condemning anti-Semitism in response to Omar’s comments that American Jews are not loyal to the United States.

But she was forced to back down under pressure from the party’s liberal base.

Politico reports:

A vote on a resolution condemning anti-Semitism in response to controversial comments by Rep. Ilhan Omar is set to slip past Wednesday amid intensifying pressure from the left both inside and outside the House Democratic Caucus.

An array of progressive groups declared their support for Omar, while both the Congressional Black Caucus and Congressional Progressive Caucus — two of the most important factions among House Democrats — wanted more time to review the situation, lawmakers and aides said.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said in a closed-door meeting Tuesday that the vote would likely happen Thursday. They also said a draft resolution would be updated to include additional language rejecting anti-Muslim bias, although some Democratic sources believe that an entirely new document might be crafted.

Democrats are trapped in a corner.

Allowing Omar to go unpunished could allow Republicans to peel Jewish voters off the Democrats’ coalition in 2020.

But sanctioning Omar risks the wrath of the base.

Given the choice between rejecting hatred and pleasing the base, Pelosi revealed her true colors by scuttling the resolution condemning anti-Semitism.

    Jewish people created the NAACP, Al Sharpton is not a racist he is reacting to racist people. Black people do not have the power or the white slave master history to be racist.

    The Communist Democratic Party has a big problem with Antisemitism and will cause their Democratic Jewish Politicians of the House and their voters to become Independent or go toward the GOP and lose power. Speaker of the House Nancy Bigmouth also has the responsibility and authority to warn Ilhan Omar to stop and desist with her remarks or she will go to jail and be kicked out of her position out of the Whitehouse for good just like An Outrageous Child.

  3. She has no idea how our Government works or how she won the right to represent the people who put her in office and she proves that everytime she opens her mouth.
