Pelosi: ‘No taint’ of anti-Semitism in Democrat Party

47

Baghdad Bob. Pelosi is either breathtakingly dishonest or totally disconnected from reality. The Democrat Party has become the party of Jew-hatred, led by Jew-haters Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who bested Pelosi and the Democrat Old Guard when they tried to pass a tepid condemnation of anti-Semitism in the wake of Omar’s repeated expressions of Jew-hatred.

“Pelosi: ‘No taint’ of anti-Semitism in Democratic Party,” by Rachel Frazin, The Hill, April 16, 2019 (thanks to Mark):

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Tuesday that there is “no taint” of anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party amid allegations against the party and individual lawmakers.

“We have no taint of that in the Democratic Party, and just because they want to accuse somebody of that doesn’t mean … that we take that bait,” Pelosi said in an interview with CNN.

She called out President Trump for his allegations that the party is “anti-Jewish,” saying the president is “bankrupt of any ideas” when he uses such accusations to undermine her party.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) has recently faced allegations of anti-Semitism after she tweeted earlier this year that support for Israel was “all about the Benjamins,” and later said pro-Israel groups “push for allegiance to a foreign country.” The comments drew backlash from lawmakers in both parties, with House Republicans calling for Omar to be removed from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

Omar apologized for and deleted at least one of the controversial tweets, saying she did not intend to offend Jewish Americans or her constituents. She also pointed out the “problematic role of lobbyists in our politics” and called on her colleagues to address it.

Pelosi defended Omar after her comment about “allegiance,” acknowledging that it may have been insensitive, but saying that she did not believe Omar meant it that way.

“I feel confident that her words were not based on any anti-Semitic attitude, but that she didn’t have a full appreciation of how they landed on other people, where these words have a history and a cultural impact that may have been unknown,” Pelosi said last month….
