Republican Cowards Failed To Hold Ilhan Omar Accountable

Absolutely pathetic…

Last night the House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed a resolution that condemned Democrat Representative Ilhan Omar for her history of blatant and continued anti-Semitic attacks on the Jewish community.

I would like to be able to continue that thought. I’d love to be able to stand here and say that Republicans joined with Democrats in order to hold bigot Ilhan Omar accountable for her actions. The world would be a better place if I was able to say that hatred had no place within the hallowed halls of the government of the greatest country in human history.

Unfortunately, that’s not what happened at all.

The resolution-authored by Democrats-that was originally intended to hold Ilhan Omar accountable for her history of anti-Semitic attacks morphed into a watered down “we condemn all hatred” circle jerk. It was the kind of resolution that allowed Democrats and Republicans to pat themselves on the back about how they “reached across the aisle” to say hate had no place in this country.

The resolution was also the perfect vehicle for Democrats to launch thinly veiled attacks on President Trump.

Rather than press the advantage that Ilhan Omar’s disgusting remarks had given them, the Republican party decided almost to a man to throw in the towel. The “principled” House minority bravely stood with Democrats to let Ilhan Omar off the hook once and for all.

When the votes were tallied four hundred and seven spineless weasels declared Ilhan Omar’s bigotry was no big deal.

Twenty three Republicans showed some spine and opposed this watered-down piece of garbage. Liz Cheney, Lee Zeldin, and Louie Gohmert were among the Republicans who actually stood on principle. These lawmakers took a stand and made it clear that they would not vote for a resolution that did not specifically condemn Ilhan Omar’s evil bigotry.

Liz Cheney has more balls than most of the men in the Republican party.

I let fly with a bit of a rant on Twitter, in which I laid out the strategy that the GOP should have used if they were serious about wanting to condemn hate and bigotry.


Make no mistake, this was a huge win for the Democrats. The anti-hate resolution took the focus off of the party. The twenty three Republican dissenters are all anyone will want to talk about now. You can be sure the media will spend the next few days hammering home the fact that these people voted in favor of hate.

Of course, that’s not the case, but the Minority leadership has made its decision. The GOP won’t support these dissenters against the media onslaught that will follow. The only people in the House that are worth a damn will be on their own.

Ilhan Omar won bigly as well. She’s now the woman who, barey sixty days into her first term in the House, took on Nancy Pelosi and won. What’s more, Omar stood up to the Islamophobia that runs rampant in the Republican party. Even now the troubadours on the Left are composing ballads painting her as the new superwoman of the Democrat party.

And all because the “principled” GOP couldn’t find the cojones to stand up for what’s right.

Pathetic.
