Pence joins Pelosi, Trump chorus against Omar, demands consequences
As CNSNews.com reported, Rep. Omar had posted a pair of tweets insinuating that the pro-Israel lobby pays members of Congress to support Israel, upsetting critics ranging from the American Jewish Committee to Chelsea Clinton.

In a Monday tweet, Pelosi posted the joint statement and said that she had spoken with Rep. Omar and that the two had agreed to “move forward as we reject anti-Semitism in all its forms”

“In our conversation today, Congresswoman Omar and I agreed that we must use this moment to move forward as we reject anti-Semitism in all forms. https://goo.gl/isKX97

The full text of the joint statement by Democrat House leadership condemning Rep. Omar’s comments, as posted on Speaker Pelosi’s website, is presented below:

Democratic Leadership Statement on Anti-Semitic Comments of Congresswoman Ilhan Omar

February 11, 2019

Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, Majority Whip James E. Clyburn, Assistant Speaker Ben Ray Luján, Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries and Caucus Vice Chair Katherine Clark issued this joint statement condemning anti-Semitic comments made over Twitter by Congresswoman Ilhan Omar:

“Anti-Semitism must be called out, confronted and condemned whenever it is encountered, without exception.

“We are and will always be strong supporters of Israel in Congress because we understand that our support is based on shared values and strategic interests. Legitimate criticism of Israel’s policies is protected by the values of free speech and democratic debate that the United States and Israel share. But Congresswoman Omar’s use of anti-Semitic tropes and prejudicial accusations about Israel’s supporters is deeply offensive. We condemn these remarks and we call upon Congresswoman Omar to immediately apologize for these hurtful comments.

“As Democrats and as Americans, the entire Congress must be fully engaged in denouncing and rejecting all forms of hatred, racism, prejudice and discrimination wherever they are encountered.”

I wonder if NSA has a record of the conversation Pelosi had with her?

That'd be interesting.


"Look Ilmar, of course you're quite correct, but if the sheeple ever find out we're all bought and paid for, we're all finished, on both sides. And we know lots of nasty people. So maybe you shouldn't talk about our sponsors being our sponsors anymore. Let me just get John and Howard on the phone and we'll see if that's OK with them."
Live without fear.

Interesting that after the DNC put so much effort$ into getting an Islamist into Congress that they are surprised she is calling out the Jewish sponsorship of the DNC...
