House Dem Leadership Pretends Ilan Omar Has Clarified Her Comparison of the U.S., Israel to Hamas, Taliban
They also condemned the comments. You cannot have your cake and eat it, too.
House of Representatives Democrat Leadership condemned the comments made by Rep. Ilhan Omar (R-MN) I blogged about in a previous post.
However, they ended the statement by accepting Omar’s non-clarification clarification tweet.
Those in this statement include:
- Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi
- Majority Leader Steny Hoyer
- Majority Whip James E. Clyburn
- Assistant Speaker Katherine Clark
- Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries
- Caucus Vice Chair Pete Aguilar

The first portion almost mirrors the condemnation from 12 House Democrats.
But then they say: “We welcome the clarification by Congresswoman Omar that there is no moral equivalency between the U.S. and Israel and Hamas and the Taliban.”
Where did Omar clarify? Is this the tweet?
Citing an open case against Israel, US, Hamas & Taliban in the ICC isn’t comparison or from “deeply seated prejudice”. You might try to undermine these investigations or deny justice to their victims but history has thought us that the truth can’t be hidden or silenced forever.

The leadership is trying to have its cake and eat it, too. They want to show they hate anti-Semitism but don’t want to upset members in the Squad.

to the full extent allowed by law.
“Shut up,” she explained.
This is exactly what happened. This was management telling her that whether or not she clarified, she had in fact clarified precisely to the specifications they demanded of her. They put words in her mouth and told her to bite down hard.
That’s why Cousin Melancholia started whining that Muslim women had no freedom of speech in the Democrat Party
Why should they be treated differently than anyone else, I ask?
Pelosi was the bint who clearly violated the Logan Act (along with a bunch of her treasonous dem buddies) in order to slobber all over the chinless Assad and then come back and proclaim that he was “a real reformer” and a decent guy.
LOL at the chutzpah of these America-hating leftists. They all agree with Omar the sibling-wedder and everyone with even half a brain knows it. The only part where they disagree with any equivalency between the US or Israel and Hamas/Taliban is that the leftists hate the US, hate Israel, and think that Hamas and the Taliban are the “good guys”.
When Barky slimed into office one of the first things he did was give Hamas a shitload of money – for no reason. ANd we need not even talk about how the dems work so hard to prop up Iran …
Pelosi is a pathological, and a very dangerous person. On top of that, she’s sold out our nation more times than Kamala Harris has….
Ah, never mind.
Why care about clarification? It’s just tribal morality by a stupid person. She’s not ever going to have a good reading of anything.
Lol at the “could just call” defense. So, you put out a public statement and expect them to push back in private? It doesn’t work that way, nutjob.
Marjorie Taylor Greene was stripped of her committee assignments because of remarks she made before she was a member of congress. However the Democrat leadership refuses to take action against Ilhan Omar for the many anti-Semitic and anti-American comments she has made as a member of congress. Her so-called clarification was to say that she was just agreeing with the ICC, not that her vile remarks were wrong.
“They want to show they hate anti-Semitism but don’t want to upset members in the Squad.”
If this is their game plan, they’re going to fail miserably on both counts.
They’re very good at pretending. They’ve been pretending to be American for decades.
Meh..Pelosi can probably get by with this whitewash with an assist from media allies, though the next time and there will be a next time, she may not.

It could be worse. You could be living in Rep. Omar’s district. It must be one ugly shit hole if she’s the best they can send to Washington.
