House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy painted Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s failure to reprimand anti-Semitic Democrats as “helpful” of them onBreitbart News Saturdayon SiriusXM Patriot.
Host and Washington Political Editor Matthew Boyle asked McCarthy about the emergence of anti-semitic remarks and actions amongst congressional Democrats.
McCarthy has been working to get Democrats to stand up to a few of their members making anti-Semitic comments. He indicated “what a few of the new Democrat members have been stating and attacking when it comes to people of the Jewish faith and others, it’s anti-semitic, their words and their language.”
New Democrat member of congress Rashida Tlaib (MI) attacked pro-Israel Americans as having battle commitment simply days into2019 Tlaib and Rep. Ilhan Omar (MN) have actually tried to counter claims that they are anti-Semitic. Nevertheless, in November 2012 Omar tweeted, “Israel has actually hypnotized the world, might Allah awaken the people and assist them see the wicked behaviors of Israel. #Gaza#Palestine #Israel.”
Democrat members have also supported a boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) effort versus Israel. Senate Democrats have actually supported the movement also, consisting of six of the seven Senate Democrats running for president in 2020.
” Nancy Pelosi has not stated a word,” he explained. “So that implies she’s supportive of these actions.”
McCarthy stated he’s seen Pelosi provided the opportunity to withstand anti-Semitism amongst Democrat members, to “say it is incorrect and put them on a different course.”
” If she does refrain from doing something, we will take action on the floor,” McCarthy exposed.
