U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Wisconsin, seems to equate homophobia with the plight of the Palestinians. House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney of Wisconsin slammed it as a "sham" resolution. Taken literally, the resolution implies that the majority of the House of Representatives supported bigotry prior to Thursday's 407-23 vote.

"I don't think our colleague is anti-Semitic", Pelosi said Friday, reiterating her previous defenses of Omar.

Despite statements from multiple lawmakers rejecting Omar's statement, the representative wasn't named in the House resolution. Some of these slanders are as disturbing or more so than the words causing Omar trouble. "The droning of countries around the world...that was Obama".

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi defended Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar during a sitdown with The Economic Club in Washington, D.C., on Friday, telling those in attendance that she believed Omar "didn't realize" the "fraught" meaning of her words when the freshman representative questioned US political support for Israel.

Omar and her Democratic "Progressive" friends have played the race, religion and feminist cards since Omar, of Minneapolis, and Tlaib, from Detroit, became the first two Muslim women in Congress.

"If that isn't allegiance to a foreign government, I don't know what is", Gold told hosts Brian Becker and John Kiriakou. We get called names and we get to be labeled as hateful.

"And that's not what we should be looking for anymore".

"We know that however we change the wording... the intention of it, given the timing and given the story, it is a rebuke of Ilhan Omar, and it falsely claims that what she said was anti-Semitic when it absolutely wasn't".

Ilhan Omar's remarks on the Israeli lobby's grip on American politics have seen her fellow Democrats blast her for anti-Semitism, and in one extreme case, for daring to question the US-Israel alliance at all.

Radio Sputnik's Loud and Clear spoke with Ariel Gold, peace activist and co-director of Codepink, about the resolution and the movement behind Omar. They argued over whether Omar should be singled out, what other types of bias should be decried in the text and whether the party would tolerate dissenting views on Israel.

The House resolution should have been limited to reprimanding Omar in this instance.

"I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is okay for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country", Omar said at a March 1 event at a book store in the capitol. The ad - which featured images of billionaire philanthropist George Soros, Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein and then-Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen, all of whom are Jewish - was "the most anti-Semitic TV ad in American history", Raskin said.
