The path to enabling bigotry was already set for the Democratic Party once they started backing away from their original rebuke of Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) for her antisemitic Tweets and comments. The only thing they needed was a gameplan to not only excuse her comments but to then spin media sentiment against Republicans.
Their plan worked like clockwork and now bigotry is officially kosher for Democrats, shielded under the guise of “conversation” and buried under other forms of bigotry that simply aren’t as present on Capitol Hill as antisemitism. Like I Tweeted:
Once Democrats realized they couldn't condemn antisemitism without angering the antisemites in their midst, they came up with a 2-step plan to cover for Omar and then make antisemitism kosher for the media by reaffirming the narrative of Republican hate. It worked like clockwork. https://t.co/mqaoswelqX

The House passed a bill declaring “all” hatred as bad, thereby removing any attention from the root cause of the bill in the first place, Omar’s antisemitism. Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) wrote a scathing rebuke of the bill.
BREAKING: Liz Cheney releases a statement:
"Today’s resolution vote was a sham put forward by Democrats to avoid condemning one of their own and denouncing vile anti-Semitism."

“Today’s resolution vote was a sham put forward by Democrats to avoid condemning one of their own and denouncing vile anti-Semitism,” Cheney said in a statement. “While I stand whole-heartedly against discrimination outlined in this resolution, the language before the House today did not address the issue that is front and center.”
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi earlier justified not including Omar’s name in the resolution by stating “it’s not about her, it’s about these forms of hatred.” Except it is about her, just as it was about Representative Steve King (R-IA) when he allegedly asked when white supremacy became a bad thing to a NY Times writer. King denied the statements in the context as they were written and the writer did not have a recording of the interview to back up his claims. Nevertheless, King received a direct and immediate rebuke.
Omar did not.
Her “rebuke” was not immediate, it has not yielded any punishment whatsoever (King was removed from committees), and the resolution didn’t name Omar directly. It was a way for Democrats to pretend to take the high road by calling out all hatred from anyone even though the inciting events were very focused hatred perpetrated by a specific member of Congress.
Even former Republican and faux-conservative shill Max Boot took to the Washington Post to point out how clear her antisemitism is.
Do we expect anything else Kennedy murdered a young woman and was re-elected and highly honored by them. The great late Byrd, how long before its illegal to criticize the prophet?
Sure, no need to mention her by name, though none of this would be a discussion without her, letting her skate away with a half-assed non-apology the last time didn’t shut her anti-Semitic mouth and focusing the rebuke on her (just because SHE’S the perp) would only give her and anyone else the impression that making anti-Semitic statements as a Representative is wrong.
Thanks for the 2020 help, Democrats. We’ll be sure to remind voters who the racists and anti-Semites are.
The Democrats the founders of the KKK the party of the Slave Owners the Party of Segrigation,the Starters of the Civil War Democratic president Woodrow Wilson who watched the movie Birth of a Nation and of LBJ who said I’LL HAVE THEM N*****S VOTING DEMOCRAT FOR THE NEXT 200 YEARS
@Spurwing Plover: Dont forget it was Omars ancestors and current people who deal in slavery. I read the current price for a young black male is 200 USD, Omar got her democrat slaves for an anti-semitic song. David Duke says she is the most important new member of Congress.
@kitt: Note she hasn’t denounced Duke. Therefore, in liberal-think, they are working hand-in-glove and both share the same ideology.
