It’s funny what Democrats have to tell themselves in order to get through the day. The most recent example coming from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Defending her party against the claim that some members like Rep. Ilhan Omar were anti-Semitic, Pelosi made the statement that there was “no taint” of anti-Jewish sentiment to be found.
While in Dublin, Pelosi shared with CNN that she did not think that Omar was anti-Semitic. She simultaneously knocked President Trump for stoking the speculation against Omar.
“We have no taint of that in the Democratic Party,” Pelosi said of racism. “And just because they want to accuse somebody of that doesn’t mean we take that bait.”
Omar has caused many issues within the Democratic Party since being elected. She has repeatedly insinuated that Israel is manipulating Washington. She has been unrepentant about many of her comments including a tweet that called on American supporters of Israel to “pledge allegiance” to a foreign country.
Her comment eventually even garnered the attention of President Trump, who tweeted a video slamming the Democrat after outrageous statements she made during the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) resurfaced.
Omar was defending the founding of CAIR when she claimed it was established in direct relation to the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks “because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”
CAIR was actually founded in 1994.
