Senate May Issue Its Own Measure to Condemn Anti-Semitism

Senate May Issue Its Own Measure to Condemn Anti-Semitism

McConnell says anti-Semitism “seems to be more fashionable in this country regretfully, at least among some members of the new class in the House.”

It looks like the Senate may introduce its own resolution to condemn anti-Semitism as the House of Representatives drafts its own resolution in response to the latest anti-Semitic remarks from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

The Washington Examiner reported that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell found the rise in anti-Semitism “disturbing” and has concerns about it.

At a town hall last weekend, Omar said, “I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is okay to push for allegiance to a foreign country.”

Jonathan Chait at The New Yorker explained that “[A]ccusing Jews of ‘allegiance to a foreign country’ is a historically classic way of delegitimizing their participation in the political system.” Chait wrote that the congresswoman “is directly invoking the hoary myth of dual loyalty, in which the Americanness of Jews is inherently suspect, and their political participation must be contingent upon proving their patriotism.”

House Democrats have started to draft a resolution to condemn anti-Semitism, but does not name Omar. Reports have also emerged that the Democrats may expand the language to include anti-Muslim bias.

The Senate passed a bipartisan anti-BDS bill in early February. McConnell mentioned the bill in his remarks, but thinks the Senate may have to expand on it:

“We feel like we already addressed a portion of this through the BDS proposal, and we may well address it again,” McConnell said.

“This is a good time in America to think again about anti-Semitism,” McConnell said. “It seems to be more fashion in Europe. it seems to be more fashionable in this country regretfully, at least among some members of the new class in the House. We need to stand up to it in any way we possibly can.”

McConnell addressed the House resolution this morning:

Nanny Pelosi has a high-wire to dance on.

Cocaine Mitch has a stronger position.

I’m of Irish Catholic heritage. My ancestors suffered their share of bigotry and discrimination. But I would never pretend to think that they suffered anything close to the vile persecution the Jewish people have suffered for centuries.

I stand with my Jewish friends and with Israel. Never let Omar and her contemptible ilk equate “Islamophobia” with Antisemitism. There’s no comparison. I hope the Senate calls Omar and the other two out accordingly.

I can hardly wait for the draconian condemnation from the RINOs in the Senate! With the turtle leading the sloths, what can we expect? Their attitude is if they overdo it then some future Demorat Senate will use the same technique. This is the logic of not backing Trump’s national emergency declaration. ICE is now claiming that over 1,000,000 illegals will cross this year! No crisis huh Nan?

So, will Republicans name names?
If so, popcorn please.

Perhaps I am naïve but I do not equate anti-Semitism (or anti-Zionism) with anti-Islam.

I see how hateful Islam can be, with its blood-lust, jihad, culture of death and terrorism. I do not know of any Jewish mother who prays that her children will become terrorists and will be killed while killing innocent defenseless Muslims. Islam and Judaism are not comparable.

I condemn anti-Catholicists, anti-scientists, anti-gravitationists, anti-Baptists, anti-semites, anti-palestians, anti-rationalists, anti-whitemaleanglosaxonprotestants, anti-anti’s. The problem is that I can never find any of these people to hate. Yes they do exist, but they aren’t even a minor part of our society. Could we please move on to some of the important issues we face?

    By this rationale, a mere handful of wacky Muslims flying jets into large buildings are inconsequential.

    No. Do not move on. Make the Democrats go on record as being anti-semitic the same way they went on record as being pro-infanticide.

    The Democrat Party has a large segment of anti-Jewish members. Make them Own it!

    I worked at the 2012 Democrat Convention in Charlotte and saw 40% of the delegates boo Israel and boo GOD!

    People need to know what a monster the DNC really is.

McConnell, “[I]t [anti-semiticism] seems to be more fashionable in this country regretfully, at least among some members of the new class in the House”

We speak English, Mitch. It’d be okay if you were to point to the three Muslim House members (Carson, Omar, Tlaib) whose religion has as a central tenet Jew Hatred, along with their rabid leftist supporters such as AOC and her claque.

Here’s Robert Spencer outlining the Jew hatred in the Muslims Qur’an,

“[T]he Qur’an demonizes the Jews in numerous ways. It depicts the Jews as inveterately evil and bent on destroying the well-being of the Muslims. They are the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82); they fabricate things and falsely ascribe them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181); they claim that Allah’s power is limited (5:64); they love to listen to lies (5:41); they disobey Allah and never observe his commands (5:13). They are disputing and quarreling (2:247); hiding the truth and misleading people (3:78); staging rebellion against the prophets and rejecting their guidance (2:55); being hypocritical (2:14, 2:44); giving preference to their own interests over the teachings of Muhammad (2:87); wishing evil for people and trying to mislead them (2:109); feeling pain when others are happy or fortunate (3:120); being arrogant about their being Allah’s beloved people (5:18); devouring people’s wealth by subterfuge (4:161); slandering the true religion and being cursed by Allah (4:46); killing the prophets (2:61); being merciless and heartless (2:74); never keeping their promises or fulfilling their words (2:100); being unrestrained in committing sins (5:79); being cowardly (59:13-14); being miserly (4:53); being transformed into apes and pigs for breaking the Sabbath (2:63-65; 5:59-60; 7:166); and more. They are under Allah’s curse (9:30), and Muslims should wage war against them and subjugate them under Islamic hegemony (9:29).”

That’s it?! That’s his reaction?!

What a weak POS.

Was the Turtle around during World War Two as well?? —

Allied forces knew about Holocaust two years before discovery of concentration camps:

“…despite the collection of evidence and the prosecution of hundreds of Nazis – a judicial process that has been overshadowed by the trial of the Nazi leadership at Nuremberg – the Allied Powers did little to try and help those in peril. He said efforts by President Franklin D Roosevelt’s envoy to the United Nations War Crimes Commission (UNWCC), Herbert Pell, were pushed back by anti-semites in the US State Department.

Mr Pell would later claim that individuals within the State Department were concerned that America’s economic relationship with Germany after the war would be damaged if such prosecutions went ahead. After Mr Pell went public with the scandal, the State Department agreed to the prosecution of the Nazi leadership at Nuremberg, something that gathered pace after the highly publicised liberation of the concentration camps in the summer of 1945.

“Among the reason given by the US and British policy makers for curtailing prosecutions of Nazis was the understanding that at least some of them would be needed to rebuild Germany and confront Communism, which at the time was seen as a greater danger,” writes Mr Plesch.”

Suuuuure they will. Afterwards they will get around to increasing border security and repealing Obamacare

If they won’t name names why bother? Whatever resolution meets with the approval of GOP “moderates” will be milquetoast and pointless.

Doesn’t the Senate have anything better to do than virtue-signal?

    Ilhan Omar is on the House Foreign Affairs committee. She is threat to foreign relations and national security threat.

I’ll believe it when I see it. They also said they’d be voting on the Green New Deal.

That said, go ahead and do it, please, to put the Dems in the position of voting yes and siding with GOP or refusing and showing that again they will work with no one.

Racism against blacks = Racism
Racism against Mexicans = Racism
Racism against Muslims = Racism
Even calling out a Muslim for racism against Jews = Racism
Racism against Jews = Antisemitism
.
Did you ever stop and wonder why that is?

healthguyfsu | March 7, 2019 at 6:43 pm

Technically, Mexican is an ethnicity not a race, so you can’t be “racist” against Mexicans or Hispanics or Latinos for that matter.
