Cheney rips Dems for lack of action against Omar for comments

Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., Continued her attack on Sunday on last week's democratic resolution condemning anti-Semitism and other bigotry – saying it was just a move to protect the Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., By not calling Cheney, the third-ranked Republican in the house, was one of the few – and most prominent – members of the GOP to break the party to oppose the resolution last Thursday . At the time she noticed it "shaken by the Democrats to avoid condemning one of their own and condemning the ugly anti-Semitism." On Sunday, she spoke to NBC's "Meet the Press", Cheney doubled on her comments. REP. ILHAN OMAR SLAMS BARACK OBAMA'S "HOPE AND CHANGE" AS A MIRAGE & # 39; "Look, I think there are two ways we could have gone," she said. "Some of the people in our conference clearly looked at it and said there is nothing emotional in the resolution. My statement made it clear that it was my opinion too. But I decided to vote against it, because I think it really was an attempt to actually protect Ilhan Omar to cover up her bigotry and anti-Semitism by refusing to name her. " Omar, a beginner's congress from Minnesota, has been at the center of a political firestorm almost since the day she took office a series of comments that have been anti-Semitic and very critical of Israel's state.

Cheney, the third-ranked Republican in the house, was one of the few – and most prominent – members of the GOP to break the party to oppose the resolution last Thursday . At the time she noticed it “shaken by the Democrats to avoid condemning one of their own and condemning the ugly anti-Semitism.”

On Sunday, she spoke to NBC’s “Meet the Press”, Cheney doubled on her comments.

REP. ILHAN OMAR SLAMS BARACK OBAMA’S “HOPE AND CHANGE” AS A MIRAGE & # 39;

“Look, I think there are two ways we could have gone,” she said. “Some of the people in our conference clearly looked at it and said there is nothing emotional in the resolution. My statement made it clear that it was my opinion too. But I decided to vote against it, because I think it really was an attempt to actually protect Ilhan Omar to cover up her bigotry and anti-Semitism by refusing to name her. “

Omar, a beginner’s congress from Minnesota, has been at the center of a political firestorm almost since the day she took office a series of comments that have been anti-Semitic and very critical of Israel’s state.

The one-sided 407-23 voice on Thursday explained emotional infighting over how to respond to Omar’s latest comments suggesting that Israel’s householders have dual allegiances. Today, the Democrats wrestled with whether or how to punish the lawyer and argued whether Omar, one of two Muslim women in Congress, should be appointed, which other types of prejudice should be voiced in the text and whether the party would tolerate dissenting views on Israel.

Cheney, who led the effort to remove controversial rope. Steve King, R-Iowa, from his commander posts after making many remarks she considered “abominable and racist” has questioned why democratic leaders have not acted like Omar.

“The Democrats have not yet taken any action to remove her from the committee,” she said. “And they have a real problem. I mean, to what extent they stick to anti-Semitism, which allows anti-Semitism in their party. It’s something we see them struggling with, but something that’s dangerous for the country. I hope they will be able to stand up and do the right thing. “

She added:” It is absolutely sinful that Nancy Pelosi and Leader [Steny] Hoyer and the democratic leaders will not express their name in a resolution on the floor and condemn her remarks and take the people who will not condemn it allow it. “
