RNC’s McDaniel Asks If Pelosi ‘Will Ever Take a Stand’ as Anti-Semitic Controversies Stack up for Dems

Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel spoke out against the recent string of anti-Semitic controversies in a tweet posted on Thursday.

“Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez demeans Holocaust victims,” tweeted McDaniel. “Ilhan Omar & Rashida Tlaib demand a boycott of the Jewish people. Several Democrats embraced Louis Farrakhan, who calls Hitler a ‘great man.’ Will Nancy Pelosi ever take a stand against the growing anti-Semitism in her ranks?”

Take a look:

As McDaniel claimed, the Democratic party has had many issues with anti-Semitism recently. During an event on Wednesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi deflected a question about condemning insensitive comments made by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.).

“But I — no, I haven’t spoken to her about that. I do have some comments to make to my caucus writ large about the political nature of how politically charged the atmosphere is, so understand that while the Republicans have no interest in holding the president accountable for his words, they will misrepresent anything that you say just if you have one word in the sentence that they can exploit.”

Watch:

The issue in question was a recent Instagram Live video in which Ocasio-Cortez described the detention facilities as being “exactly” like concentration camps, as IJR Red reported.

Another controversy that McDaniel suggested Pelosi has failed to address correctly is the multiple comments that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) made which many believed to be anti-Semitic. Pelosi responded to the controversy by dismissing Omar’s comments.

Watch:

“I don’t think our colleague is anti-Semitic,” Pelosi said. “I think she has a different experience in the use of words, doesn’t understand that some of them are fraught with meaning that she didn’t realize.”

McDaniel also pointed out that some representatives, including Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), have been connected with known anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan. Yet, as IJR Red reported, the most aggressive action that has been taken was a House resolution to condemn all hate speech.

Of course the Queen of the House has taken no action. Nor will she. The Jewish people and any who support them are fair game under the rules by which the left lives. Frisco Nancy will never risk alienating her meal ticket – and he’d divorce her if she wasn’t Speaker, keeping the regulators away from his books. So, no, common decency and common sense will never occupy the Speaker’s chair until the Democrats lose their majority.

Nancy is to busy waving her hands while she preens for the MSM TV cameras to actually do something. . .

Exploitation? The Dumbocrats are virtual maestros when it comes to using people for their own selfish gains. Pick a group, any group, except old white men,
and the usery is like a steamroller.

I’m a proud Californian and I am ashamed of the people that we have running our local government. I would love to find out how many illegals voted for our governor after Newsome said he is going to give all the illegals free healthcare
I am a senior on Medicare and I pay for my own medical and co-pays. Why aren’t we supposed to produce identification to vote. We need that for everything else and this is the important part that we need to do!
