Pelosi Amnesia Grows As She Condemned Anti-Semitism,

House speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi had harsh words for her colleagues in both the legislative and executive branch of government on Sunday,

demanding that they strongly condemn anti-Semitism in the wake of a series of anti-Semitic attacks,

culminating in a mass stabbing late Saturday night at a Hanukkah party in suburban New York City.

But Strangely though, Pelosi seems to be struggling with selective amnesia on the subject, having refused, just months ago, to

press through a measure condemning anti-Semitism within her own Congressional delegation.

Nancy Pelosi tweeted her exhortation Sunday morning, begging President Donald Trump and others to vocally and forcefully admonish anti-Semites and condemn anti-Semitic attacks.

There are bigger problems with Pelosi’s sudden interest in condemning anti-Semitism, however not just a refusal to acknowledge the events of the last six months.

members of their own caucus, notably Rep. Ilhan Omar, who has a history of anti-Semitic remarks and, in early March at a meeting of

Washington, D.C. progressives, repeated a centuries old anti-Semitic smear, accusing legislators who support Israel of having “dual loyalty.”

Now the remarks met with widespread horror, including from the Anti-Defamation League, and Democratic House members began drafting a

measure reaffirming Congress’ support for its ally, Israel, and condemning Omar’s anti-Semitic remarks, along with anti-Semitism as a whole.

Pelosi initially supported the measure, but famously backed down, allowing Omar and others to rewrite the resolution condemning “all hate” instead of just hate directed at the Jewish people.

Nancy Pelosi also excused Omar’s behavior, claiming that the freshman Democrat had “a different experience in the use of words,” and

wasn’t actually accusing her fellow members of Congress of having dual loyalty to the United States and Israel.

Pelosi has not followed up on her tweet.
