Democratic congressman calls out his party for response to Rep. Omar's anti-Semitism


Recommended Posts


Rep. Ted Deutch (D-Fla.) chastised the Democratic Party on Thursday for its weak response to anti-Semitic comments by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.).


What began as an effort to pass a resolution specifically condemning anti-Semitism quickly morphed into a broader resolution condemning numerous types of hate, such as white supremacy and anti-Muslim statements.

"Why are we unable to singularly condemn anti-Semitism?" Deutch said on the House floor. "Why can't we call it anti-Semitism and show we've learned the lessons of history? It feels like we're only able to call the use of anti-Semitic language by a colleague of ours, any colleague of ours, if we're addressing all forms of hatred."


Democrat discovers his party is full of bigots.
