Congressional Hypocrites Vote to Condemn “Hate”

Written by 

After the House voted 407-23 in favor of H. Res. 183, Alex Newman and Christian Gomez of The New American break it all down. The resolution sets the stage to buckle down on "hatred," including anti-Semitism and anti-Muslim discrimination, which is specifically pointed out in the text. The resolution came about in response to controversial tweets by MN Rep. Ilhan Omar against Israel support that was deemed "anti-Semitic." But unlike the resolution to condemn Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) which condemned him by name, Omar was never called out. There are other controversial elements of this resolution too. Is criticism of U.S. government aid to Israel anti-Semitic? Is it irrational fear of Islam (Islamophobia) to be concerned about some of what is written in the Koran? Newman and Gomez discuss.
