‘I’m done talking’: Pelosi reportedly loses control of backroom battle over anti-Semitism, abruptly storms out

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was reportedly “taken aback” Wednesday when she discovered that her party is embracing its freshman anti-Semites.

In response to Muslim congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s repeated use of anti-Semitic tropes and stereotypes to smear supporters of America’s closest ally, Israel, the House Speaker introduced a resolution earlier this week to condemn anti-Semitism and scheduled a vote for Wednesday.

Because of pushback from the anti-Semitic congresswoman’s defenders in the Congressional Black Caucus and Congressional Progressive Caucus, the vote was delayed until Thursday after a closed-door meeting held Wednesday with freshmen and senior House Democrats.

It was at this meeting that the truth apparently dawned on Pelosi:

“[O]ne senior House Democratic lawmaker expressed concern about the influence pro-Israel interest groups have over the Democratic caucus, prompting debate about a resolution to condemn anti-Semitism in the first place,” Fox News reported.

The unnamed Democrat basically echoed Omar’s own anti-Semitism by trotting out the age-old trope of malicious Jews (or “Joos,” as renowned conservative commentator Ben Shapiro, himself a Jew, often sarcastically describes his own people) influencing American politics via money.

One of the freshman congresswoman’s first acts of anti-Semitism after being elected into office involved her insinuating via a since-deleted tweet that U.S. politicians are beholden to Israeli money:

For a senior House Democrat lawmaker to repeat this trope is stunning.

According to Fox News, the key Democrats to come out in favor of Pelosi’s resolution were all Jewish, including House Ethics Committee chair Ted Deutch, House Foreign Affairs Committee chair Eliot Engel and House Appropriations Committee chair Nita Lowey.

Apparently, the only lawmakers within the Democrat Party who care about anti-Semitism are Jews and perhaps Pelosi as well, though even her willingness to combat anti-Semitism remains in question. Why? Because she’s reportedly tried to downplay Omar’s vile rhetoric.


The problem is that the House Speaker feels trapped between a rock and a hard place.

“If Pelosi comes down too hard on Omar, she risks alienating progressive lawmakers and outside groups that have rallied to the Minnesota Democrat’s side,” Politico reported Thursday morning. “If she pulls her punches, Pelosi will anger Jewish lawmakers and groups outraged over Omar’s latest remark about pro-Israel advocates’ ‘allegiance to a foreign country.'”


The reason she risks alienating so many parties is because the Democrat Party is demonstrably teeming with anti-Semites, a fact that Pelosi had seemingly been unaware of beforehand.

Whether or not to condemn anti-Semitism shouldn’t even be an issue. After Iowa congressman Steve King made allegedly racist, “white supremacist” remarks two months ago (the evidence suggests that, unlike Omar’s remarks, his remarks were taken out of context), Republicans didn’t hesitate even a second to condemn him and strip him of all his committee assignments.

Nor did Democrats hesitate to use King’s remarks to smear all Republicans. Yet when it comes to them holding their own bigots accountable, mum’s the word. It’s inordinately telling. Unfortunately, such behavior isn’t a rare bug but rather a longtime feature of the Democrat Party.

Dovetailing back to the closed-door meeting Wednesday, Pelosi reportedly grew so frustrated with Omar’s freshman and senior Democrat defenders that she dropped her microphone and stormed out while saying, “Well if you’re not going to listen to me, I’m done talking.”

But had anybody even been listening to her in the first place? Many suspect no, since it’s clear now that, despite her rank, she isn’t the leader of the Democrat Party anymore.

If anything, she’s just a puppet:
