Earlier this week, I shared my assessment on the most recent anti-Semitic rant from the Congresswoman of Minnesota, Ilhan Omar. I expressed my sentiments that nothing would come of this, there would be no consequences or ramifications. I never like to say, I told ya so, but doggone.
As reported by The Hill:
“House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) on Tuesday said that he will not remove Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) from his committee over controversial comments made by the Minnesota freshman.
“No, I’m not close to it,” Engel said when asked on CNN’s “Erin Burnett OutFront” if he would remove Omar from the committee.
“First of all, it’s not up to me. This is done by the leadership. I don’t know that that would do anything except exacerbate the situation even more. I’m looking to get rid of anti-Semitism, not looking to punish anybody.”
Engel was pressed on the possibility of removing Omar following comments she made last week that he has called anti-Semitic.
“I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is OK for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country,” Omar said at an event last week at a restaurant and bookstore in Washington, D.C. “
I want to ask, why is it OK for me to talk about the influence of the NRA, of fossil fuel industries, or Big Pharma, and not talk about a powerful lobby that is influencing policy?” she said in reference to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).
Engel pushed back on the comments, saying that it was unacceptable to question someone’s loyalty over their support for Israel and called for Omar to apologize.
“I welcome debate in Congress based on the merits of policy, but it’s unacceptable and deeply offensive to call into question the loyalty of fellow American citizens because of their political views, including support for the U.S.-Israel relationship,” Engel said in a statement following Omar’s comments.
“Her comments were outrageous and deeply hurtful, and I ask that she retract them, apologize, and commit to making her case on policy issues without resorting to attacks that have no place in the Foreign Affairs Committee or the House of Representatives.”
House Democratic leaders are set to vote Thursday on a resolution condemning anti-Semitism that does not call out Omar by name.”
Now there are reports that this resolution may not even happen . . . or at least it will be severely watered down. How interesting that Chairman Engel initially made all his protestations, then came to put his tail between his legs, coward. Even Speaker Nancy Pelosi is refusing to condemn Omar, saying her tweets were “not intentionally anti-Semitic.” Right, another coward.
Why are the media and Chairman Jerrold Nadler so enchanted with investigating and impeaching President Trump? I mean talk about chasing unicorns! And, isn’t Ocasio-Cortez alleged to have violated campaign finance rules, FEC, to the tunes of $1M?
Oh, by the way, the other trifecta of disaster, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, is also under allegations of campaign finance violations for receiving $17,500 of salary from her campaign after the election. It appears to me that these are serious allegations, potential felony offenses. Just look at Jesse Jackson, Jr. and “Cold Cash” Jefferson.
But, for some reason, Ocasio-Cortez and Tlaib seem impervious to scrutiny and consequences. Why?
The answer is simple: the progressive socialists — who now evidently run the Democrat Party — have no standards. There is nothing to hold them accountable to since they do not have fundamental beliefs besides “by whatever means necessary.” As I stated earlier in my missive this week, it is up to the people to hold these runaway lunatics responsible for their actions and rhetoric.
There is no debate that the Democrat Party is the party of anti-Semitism. Nancy Pelosi has made the political decision that she will appease the far left chuckleheads in order to stay in power. And, those “moderate” Democrats, well, they will not be around for long. The message has been sent, you are not wanted, and Ocasio-Cortez is making a list, it ain’t about being nice either.
At this time, we should stop calling them the Democrat Party. They are progressive socialists. The Democrat Party is dead, gone, kaput. Based upon this week, yes, Ocasio-Cortez, Omar, and Tlaib are in control of the House Progressive Socialist party. They have told Pelosi and Engel that they had better . . . surrender to them . . . or find themselves on a list.
Rep. Tlaib has stated that by the end of the week, she will be presenting legislation for the impeachment of President Trump. After all, she did say “we are going to impeach the mutha . . ”
As I said, ol’ Nancy is now realizing that she should be careful of what she desires. She is not the Speaker. She is just an errand girl doing the bidding of these maniacal little Marxist/Islamist princesses who are holding her, and their former party, hostage.
