House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has caved again to Rep. Ilhan Omar by refusing to outright condemn her for making another round of anti-Semitic comments, and Twitter users are eating her alive for it.
As detailed by The Daily Wire, several prominent pundits and writers on Twitter have been brutally mocking Pelosi for allowing Omar and other radical freshman Democratic lawmakers to take control of the party.
The Democratic-controlled House of Representatives was supposed to vote on a flimsy measure condemning anti-Semitism in response to Omar’s comments about Israel, but now they aren’t even doing that.
Here’s more from the Daily Wire on the Omar scandal and Pelosi refusing to take control of the party:
On Wednesday, asked by a reporter about comments made by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) that have widely been interpreted as anti-Semitic, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who has assiduously avoided the idea of taking Omar off of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, answered that she did not think Omar’s comments were ‘intentionally anti-Semitic.’”
The Washington Examiner reported that Pelosi said that the House Foreign Affairs Committee, which Omar is a member of, would be writing the resolution.
Late on Wednesday, The Daily Beast reported that after pressure from far-left Democrats, “leaders appeared to change course, asking the House Foreign Affairs Committee to draft a resolution that rebuked ‘all hate.’”
The apparent lack of control by Pelosi caught the attention of many notable pundits, relevant figures in media and politics, and notable social media accounts, who accused Pelosi of losing control to freshman.
Congratulations to Nancy Pelosi, puppet of freshmen

Watching Pelosi deal with this is like watching Boehner & MConnell deal with Ted Cruz, except there are 4 of him and all 4 are raging anti-semites. She’s lost the party.

In fact, Pelosi has apparently become so weak that she argued on Wednesday that Omar’s comments were “intentionally anti-Semitic.”
Omar previously argued that the U.S. only supports Israel because it’s all about the “Benjamin’s” and even suggested that accusations of anti-Semitism are intended to silence her.
Below are two examples of Omar recently making bigoted comments:
“What I’m fearful of — because [Representative] Rashida [Tlaib] and I are Muslim — that a lot of our Jewish colleagues, a lot of our constituents, a lot of our allies, go to thinking that everything we say about Israel to be anti-Semitic because we are Muslim.”
“So for me, I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is okay to push for allegiance to a foreign country.”
