They also don't want to pass more anti-semitic House resolutions against Omar and the like which passed unanimously.
"The House on Wednesday unanimously passed a broad condemnation of anti-Semitism days after Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., received widespread criticism over her comments on Israel.
The language, which does not mention Omar by name, was approved 424-0 using a legislature procedure that lets the minority party make a last-minute motion to change legislation just before it’s passed. The procedure almost never works for the minority party, in part because the minority usually tries to make radical changes to the bill that the majority quickly rejects.
On Wednesday, however, Republicans used the so-called “motion to recommit” vote to call for the addition of language to a resolution that states it is in the “national interests of the United States to combat anti-Semitism at home and abroad.”
“With an unfortunate rise in anti-Semitism and attempts to delegitimize Israel, the United States House of Representatives must emphasize the importance of combating anti-Semitism and reject all movements that deny Israel’s right to exist,” the amendment states.
The sponsor of the language, Rep. David Kustoff, R-Tenn., indicated the language was aimed at Omar, who has been criticized by both parties for comments they say amount to anti-Semitism.
“This horrific anti-Semitic tone being taken by some Members of Congress must come to an end,” Kustoff said. “The language I offered affirms the United States’ interest in combating anti-Semitism at home and abroad, something my colleagues on both sides of the aisle should and must support. I am proud to stand today in solidarity with my Jewish community as this hate has no place in our country.”
The House easily approved the proposal, marking the first time in several years that the motion to recommit worked."
Remarkable - so speaking truth to power reveals the lobby that's opposed to the First Amendment is overwhelming more powerful than even the vaunted lobby that is pro the Second Amendment? What has the U.S. Constitution come to?
I don't see anything here about 2nd Amendment or lobbying. At the same time the 1st Amendment is not offended. Anti-semites can gush forth as they please and those opposed can call them bigots. The 1st permits both. The Constitution also permits either chamber to sanction or expel a member by a 2/3 vote for what the majority deems to be unacceptable behavior as defined by the members at any specific time.
Explaining to Congress is impossible as Congresswoman Omar has just discovered, but I'll let Glenn Greenwald explain TO YOU what is really going on here (he does mention the NRA also):
Criticizing Israeli Lobby & AIPAC Is Not Anti-Semitic
P.S. I did not see any reference to Ocasio-Cortez in your post about Omar. I did not start this thread about Ocasio-Cortez, the Russian bot did, but even so you probably should stay on topic if only to acknowledge the propagandist's hard work (you know, from one propagandist to another...).
Greenwald did not address Goodman's question about Omar's tweet about Benjamin's baby, etc. which resulted in the unanimous condemnation of Omar by the House so they see something that Greenwald missed. As for Omar, why would I mention AOC in a post about Omar? I commented on Omar because it was brought up. You have a problem with that?
