Radical Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar has been under fire for her most recent anti-Semitic comments concerning Israel. Led by Nancy Pelosi, the House Democrats are refusing to condemn the anti Jewish Representative because they are afraid to divide the Democratic party considering a large portion of the House supports Omar’s anti-Semitic comments.
At first, it seemed that Speaker Pelosi was going to condemn the freshman congresswoman, but after she found out that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez supported Omar, she backtracked.
CNN’s Manu Raju confronted Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Thursday to ask her about the situation.
Ocasio-Cortez: “I thinks its uh, its uh a learning experience and uh its, its part of the fact that when we elect the most Democrat, the most diverse democratic caucus that we have in… pretty much ever it means that we’re, we have new communities at the table, new conversations that need to be had and we have to learn how to have conversations differently every time so uh I think its just part of a learning process that we have as a country frankly.”
After Ocasio-Cortez spewed this confusing statement, she was asked by Raju, “Do you think that congresswoman Omar was unfairly singled out?”
She responded by saying, “You know I think that uh…I think that…you know I, I think that, that, uh, things came down on her a little too hard.”
