Pelosi has the cojones it takes, but she's absolutely constrained by the optics of the moment.

Watch Pelosi carefully now as she's working the halls frantically seeking alliances from senior Dem's with her realizing she needs to present a visibly united front of Democrats arrayed in a quiet, logically presented illustration of solidarity to address Omar so as to effectively stifle her but also cull the rest of the "squad" from stridently defending her.

This will take some time as Pelosi knows the constituents switchboards will be lighting up with people phoning in to decry their party seeming to supporting Omar's nonsense by it's silence. Pelosi needs to allow time for that to have the desired effect on the party honchos before rounding up a posse and throwing the noose over the nearest tree branch.
Oh, I know she won't go quietly, but either a whole group of people will shut her down or they'll all ignore her once they can't control her. They're not going to support her, is my point.

What conservative supports the federal government telling you that you can't boycott a particular country for whatever reason you want?

Absolutely her comparison to Nazi Germany and such is reprehensible. But this is a pro-freedom move.
Yes strange times where we need a resolution that supports the rights of individuals to boycott any country including Israel.

Exactly. We have a constitutional amendment defending free speech for just that reason.

Although it seems like everybody wants to throw it out the window for some reason.

Well, she's wrong and offensive in being so.

Is it necessary to point out that one can defend her right to being in the country without agreeing with her? I guess it is.

<sigh> Hey, righties: It is possible to be in favor of a person having the right to her opinion - even her right to further that opinion politically - without sharing that opinion. Y'all may want to put it on a Post-It or something, you seem to have a really hard time with the concept.

If a senator or congressperson etc. from the rival political party says\does something outrageous the other side is most assuredly going to try to paint the entire party as such.

It's dishonest, it's politics 101.

So in response, you claim "racism" being the sole motivator for them to highlight such extreme comments.

Which is....dishonest and also politics 101.

To summarize, you're upset that they're using Omar to make sweeping statements about democrats so you then accuse most Republicans of being racist.

We Republicans thank her!
^^This. Would love to see the look on Nancy's face when she heard what the "new face of the Dem party" pulled now.

They have made the Democratic party the face of hatred, bigotry, stupidity and hate for this nation.

What is amazing is that there are still Jews in this nation that support the Dem party. They have long since abandoned blue-collar working people-might as well s**t on the Jews next and drive them away.

"The Squad" now has tremendous power, as the dems are politically in a position of supporting everything they say. They had the opportunity to condemn Omar early on for her anti-Semitic statements, but chose to do nothing.


Now the dem party is the party of radical Islam, open borders, AOC's "green energy" initiative, and anything against America.


Wow- this is one of the most peculiar political situations I have seen in a long, long time. Omar is on the foreign affairs committee- dems will now have to support Muslim extremist views to have "cohesion".
Virtually every Dem candidate already made that clear in the debates.

What's even more amazing than Jews still supporting the Democrat Party is how vile they can be toward Jews who don't. I've been called a Nazi....by fellow Jews (liberals)....simply for being a Republican. I lost my father recently, may he RIP, and a liberal Jew came up to me at the post-funeral lunch, and started berating Republican positions - knowing I am Republican. I find it shameful.

Would liberal Jews here (or liberals in general) at least acknowledge that you should not come up to a woman an hour after she shoveled earth onto her father's coffin - and attack her for being a Republican? I'm just wondering where you find the liberal hatred toward those with opposing opinions going over the line.
