House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is often called the grown-up in the U.S. House, struggling to control the troublemaking children of the House Democratic freshman class. The joke lands well when Pelosi struggles to prevent the 29-year-old Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., from setting the national party’s agenda single-handedly.
But the joke becomes a little less funny when Democrats infantilize one of their own — a mother in her late 30s who has been a fellow at one of the nation’s top-ranked public policy schools — to excuse anti-Semitism. We refer, of course, to Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.
Pelosi and the leadership had been calling for Omar to apologize a few weeks back — that was about five anti-Semitic “slip-ups” ago. But with Omar’s faux-apology in the rearview mirror and new anti-Semitic conspiracy theories on her lips, the Democratic House leadership has suddenly cowered.
Recognizing her weakness, more Democrats, including presidential candidates, are now rushing to defend Omar’s vile anti-Semitic stereotypes and conspiracy theories about Jews who support Israel.
The Democrats defending Omar have no excuse. This is not mere criticism of Israel. But their decision to embrace Omar has created great tension within the Democratic Party. They appear to have made Pelosi back down in her attempt to rebuke Omar’s anti-Semitism for a second time on the House floor.
