The big news over at CNN is how unfair President Trump is for taking advantage of Democrats diversity. One analyst argued that this was the source of the parties difficulties in crafting a response to antisemitic remarks by one of its members. We’re just not sophisticated enough to know the difference division and debate.
“This is Trump taking advantage of this, exacerbating the tensions within the Democratic party,” (Ryan) Lizza said. “Look, the Democratic party is a much more diverse party. They’re always going to have, frankly, more debate,”
The Democrats ultimately decided two things. First, hate is bad. Second, we misunderstood what Ilhan Omar said. Probably because we are so unsophisticated. So, Republicans, sometimes referred to as Nazis, should stop pretending they know antisemitism is when they hear it.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) said Omar’s words were a result of the freshman congresswoman’s “different experience in the use of words.”
I can’t tell you how many times that’s happened to me. Words like “shall not be infringed or “shall make no law.” My experience with “prohibiting” and “abridging” is also very different from that of Democrats. Even the word hate.
It’s almost as if we’re using two completely different dictionaries. Of course, that doesn’t explain this.
Some Democrats, however, were dissatisfied with a blanket condemnation of hate, wishing that the resolution had specifically targeted anti-Semitism.
“This resolution is a fine resolution and I will support it, but I am very disappointed that we weren’t able to have a separate resolution to specifically condemn anti-Semitism and what our colleague said that really was a very hateful term,” said Rep. Eliot Engel (D., N.Y.), who is Jewish.
Sorry, Eliot but your party is just too ”diverse” for that.
