Ilhan Omar Violates House Bigotry Resolution She Helped Write, Denies Opponent's Humanity

Parler Share

Anti-Semitic Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar has already violated the broad anti-hate resolution recently passed by the House by claiming President Donald Trump is not human.

After Omar’s absurd anti-Semitic tweets and comments put a magnifying glass on the Democratic Party and its ties to anti-Semitic and anti-Israel activists, the party’s response was to draft an anti-bigotry resolution.

But instead of addressing Omar by name and focusing on anti-Semitism specifically, the House Foreign Affairs Committee drafted a resolution that condemned all forms of “bigotry” and “persecution.”

It’s hard to take the Democrats’ bill seriously after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi vigorously defended Omar.

Omar’s position on the Foreign Affairs Committee, where she could help write the resolution, doesn’t help.

And it didn’t take long for Omar to violate the resolution.

When Fox News reporter Guerin Hays asked Omar about her controversial remarks about former President Barack Obama, and the freshman congresswoman responded by dehumanizing Trump.

Is the mainstream media ignoring this?

“One is human, the other is not,” Omar said in reference to Obama and Trump.

That flies in the face of the House resolution condemning all forms of persecution and bigotry, which obviously includes dehumanizing remarks.

“Whereas the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., taught that persecution of any American is an assault on the rights and freedoms of all Americans,” the resolution reads.

The resolution also “encourages all public officials to confront” racism, anti-Semitism, and “other forms of bigotry.”

Dehumanizing someone because of their political beliefs certainly falls within the categories of bigotry and persecution.

Merriam-Webster defines “bigotry” as “obstinate or intolerant devotion to one’s own opinions and prejudices.”

Similarly, Dictionary.com defines persecution as “to pursue with harassing or oppressive treatment, especially because of religious or political beliefs, ethnic or racial origin, gender identity, or sexual orientation.”

The first pretty clearly characterizes the contemporary Democratic Party. The second pretty clearly describes its treatment of President Donald Trump and the supporters who’ve been hounded out of public restaurants or even attacked for their political opinions.

Democrats were unwilling to condemn Omar’s anti-Semitic comments before, but they shouldn’t think twice about condemning her now that she has blatantly violated their anti-hate resolution.

If Democrats want to salvage their image as crusaders for “social justice,” they can’t let Omar’s comments slide.

It’s time for Republicans and Democrats to stand together to condemn the hateful, anti-Semitic congresswoman.
