It is transcendent when someone in power does the right thing, says the right thing. We have suffered the weak and limpwristed ‘leaders’ on the right (Bush, Romney, Ryan etc) for far too long. And it was not without consequences. The most evil, vicious demagogues on the left have taken control because they met little to no resistance. Not until #GOAT President Trump and his team.
Mike Pompeo attacks Ilhan Omar over ‘abhorrent’ comments
The Washington Examiner, | March 21, 2019 09:42 PM
“To see this from a member of Congress like Congresswoman Omar is — I talked about this being dark,” Pompeo told the Christian Broadcasting Network during an interview from Jerusalem. “The rise of anti-Semitism in the United States and in Europe and in, frankly, all across the world is something that is deeply troubling, and to see someone, a duly elected congressman, behave in that way, to speak about anti-Semitism in that way, is of great concern.”
Omar denied charges of anti-Semitism throughout the controversy that unfolded in early March, without backing down from the suggestion that some members of Congress are loyal to Israel at the expense of the United States.
“I should not be expected to have allegiance/pledge support to a foreign country in order to serve my country in Congress or serve on committee,” she tweeted in response to Engel’s rebuke. “I am told everyday that I am anti-American if I am not pro-Israel. I find that to be problematic and I am not alone. I just happen to be willing to speak up on it and open myself to attacks.”
Pompeo’s criticism picks at a Democratic wound that has had little time to heal, as he meets with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu just days before the Israeli leader travels to the United States for the annual AIPAC conference and meetings with President Trump. The debate over whether to condemn anti-Semitism in a clear rebuke of Omar or pass a broader resolution divided Democrats for days.
“I feel let down by some colleagues who seem to have questioned those of us who feel the weight of history when we hear classic anti-Semitic language, history that has led to targeting Jews, expelling Jews from their countries, violence against Jews, and attempts to exterminate the Jewish people,” Rep. Ted Deutch, D-Fla., said after the vote. “Anti-Semitism is worthy of being condemned, singularly. I hope this painful week is never repeated in this Congress.”
