The Jewish community has had enough on the Democratic Party’s anti-Semitic rhetoric — and they decided to act this week. The National Conference of Jewish Affairs organized a sit-in protest inside House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office, in part to show their disgust at the radical left’s unwillingness to condemn anti-Semitism.
The leader of the protest, spokesperson Rabbi Aryeh Spero, called it an emergency action.
“[Rep. Ilhan] Omar should be censured,” he said. “And beyond that, removed from the powerful and influential House Foreign Affairs Committee that Speaker Pelosi surprisingly grants to this first-year legislator. Omar’s thinking, her conduct, and her blithe willingness to inject anti-Semitic tropes into the legislative process maker her unfit to hold such a strategic position.”

The demonstration is the latest in a string of frustrations for Pelosi, who is struggling to keep her party in check. The direction of the House Democrats is being steered anew by the incoming freshman Democrats, including Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-M.N., who started her congressional campaign off by taking every opportunity to make incendiary anti-Semitic remarks.
House Democrats’ bill to condemn hate speech was met with outrage after it became obscure – what was once a resolution to condemn anti-Semitic speech, was forced by the controversial freshman to simply condemn all hate speech.
They refused to just admit their mistakes and move on.
Critics have since demanded that Omar be removed from her seats, but Pelosi hasn’t budged.
And the bill, which was drafted in response to Omar’s inflammatory remarks, failed to even mention the Minnesota representative. It doesn’t look so good back in Minnesota either. According to The Hill, Democrats in Minnesota have began to organize a challenger for Omar in the next midterms.
The buyer’s remorse displayed by constituents in her home state comes just four months after the midterms — proof that her radical statements have inflicted pain upon Jewish communities.
“Our community is exasperated by Rep. Omar’s unfulfilled promises to listen and learn from Jewish constituents while seemingly simultaneously finding another opportunity to make an anti-Semitic remark and insult our community,” Steve Hunegs, executive director of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas, said in a statement.
“I’d be pretty uncomfortable supporting Rep. Omar right now, given what I’ve learned about her since the election and given her apparent inability to stop insulting Jews,” said Sen. Ron Latz (D).
It seems the entire political sphere has called on Omar to apologize or pay for her comments about the Jewish people — from doubling down on conspiracy theories, to questioning allegiances with the Israeli state.
Voters are having it out with Pelosi.
And it continued with one big party in her office.
