Rep. Zeldin Explains 'No' Vote on 'Watered Down,' 'Spineless' Anti-Hate Resolution

ALEXANDRIA VA- APRIL 27 House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi speaks during an event at Northern Virginia Community College

ALEXANDRIA VA- APRIL 27 House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi speaks during an event at Northern Virginia Community College

"I thought yesterday's vote by the House was disgraceful", he said.

"Family separation and the caging of kids...this was Obama", she can be heard telling Politico in a recording.

The publication affirmed the rampant oppression of homosexuals throughout the Arab world, wherein gays are executed in some countries exclusively due to their orientation. They are right that Congress should rebuke all others who behave so badly - although that is a convenient opportunity for Omar to deflect attention from her own slanders. Why would she be more emboldened to refuse an apology altogether?

"We know that when people get backed into a corner... they get uglier and uglier", she warned. "We want to recognize the actual policies that are behind the pretty face and the smile".

"She's not off the hook herself", Gold said while noting the possibility that "this might be a change, and I would love to see that". "We should condemn all forms".

"Exhibit A of how reporters distort words".

"Friends, our supporters, you know the Women's March we're going through some rough times and if you know anything about this past week, I'm going to give you some ideas of what we did this week". She later noted that she had taken Omar's comments about dual loyalty to be referring to Rubio, who is not Jewish. Expanding this resolution to everything else under the sun while excluding Omar's name was silly, though the political motives for doing so are understandable. So does my longer tape.

Trump went on to say that "the Democrats have become an anti-Israel party". She has denied charges of prejudice toward Jews or Israel. Pro-Israel organizations and politicians have countered with tough responses.

I, too, was upset by Omar's remarks. "Our nation is having a hard conversation".

Democrats boast the most gender- and ethnically diverse House in USA history after November's election, and Speaker Nancy Pelosi found herself embroiled in the downside of what that diversity means. But after blowback from progressives, it was revised to broadly condemn discrimination against Muslims and other minorities as well.

However, that sort of excusing deference and laughable benefit of the doubt appear to be reserved for Omar; in the past, Pelosi has used President Trump's words and actions most definitely to define his actual beliefs.

The resolution, which made no mention of Omar, ultimately passed 407 to 23. Sarsour in her video took credit for convincing House Democratic leadership for "expanding the language of the resolution to include condemning all forms of bigotry". Republicans who voted against it complained it had been watered down.

Trump seized on the shift, injecting a new angle of attack as he readies a 2020 re-election bid and fellow Republicans seek to claw back ground they lost in the House in last year's mid-terms.

The resolution condemned the charge of dual loyalty against Jewish Americans, stating it "constitutes anti-Semitism because it suggests that Jewish citizens can not be patriotic Americans and trusted neighbors, when Jews have loyally served our Nation every day".
