House passes resolution condemning anti-Semitism and other bigotry

The House on Thursday passed a resolution condemning anti-Semitism and other bigotry. The resolution condemns anti-Semitism, anti-Muslim discrimination and bigotry against minorities ’as hateful expressions of intolerance’. Speaker Nancy Pelosi defended embattled Rep. Ilhan Omar before the vote, saying while Omar’s comments were insensitive, she harbors no ill feelings towards Jewish people.

if Trump said it everyone would be at his throat. But because a Muslim wahmen said it, it gets swept under the rug. Gotta love the double standards of democrats.

When you hate Jews but there's a Jewish state you can pretend to hate instead.

As someone who is anti Israel, it is clear she is unnecessarily biased towards Jews and Israel.

Lol, same thing is happening to the Dems as happened to UK labour. If you let Muslims in your party then anti-Semitism is going to become a part of the party platform. Hopefully this will cost the Dems in 2020 as there are a lot of Jews in America who aren't gonna appreciate it.

So it is antisemetic to complain about the strings lobbyists attatch to funds paid to members of congress? This a major part of the swamp that has suborned the will of the electorate.

Aipac is the largest lobby group in America, America does have a preferential bias towards Israel (just look at campaign promises), Israel had not respected treaty lines, Israel does continue to blockade human aid and practice extremely racist actions towards it's Ethiopian brothers, it's illegal to even talk about Jews in Europe and a no-no in America. Israel was promised by the crown to the Rothschild right before ww2 ended. Usually the groups you're not allowed to talk about are the groups that need to be focused on extra carefully. Israel tried to hide it's nukes and never signed non proliferation act, the put machine guns on bulldozer tanks and destroy impoverished areas, they close down all of Gaza and starve the people inside. Zionist Jews shake hands with CCP. Mossad agents celebrated right after 9/11. Hollywood, msm, and Banks are all heavily jewed. George Soros is a Jew. They damn turned in Jesus to the Romans to be crucified. I like Ben Shapiro and Jerry Seinfeld, I don't like America giving billions to another nation n return for nothing, I don't like Israel's humanitarian record, I don't like the fact it's taboo to talk about any of this.

"Anti-semitism" isn't an argument but an assumption of intent, meant to take away focus from the issue at hand. Let's stop pretending valid criticism of a lobbying group is a hate crime.

I think her statement has some validity not because I think that she despises Judaism which I do not think is the case but instead because she despises Zionism.
