Nancy Pelosi developed an image as an unbeatable power player in Washington.
That all went down in flames.
Pelosi was just exposed as a fraud in this most humiliating defeat of her life.
Speaker Pelosi was backed into a corner.
Racist Congresswoman Ilhan Omar ignited a national firestorm with anti-Semitic comments claiming Jewish Americans were not loyal to the United States.
“I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is OK to push for allegiance to a foreign country,” Omar ranted at a panel held at a Washington, D.C. bookstore.
This was the third instance of Omar expressing anti-Semitic viewpoints.
Democrats knew they had to do something.
So Speaker Pelosi scheduled a vote on a resolution – that did not mention Omar by name – condemning anti-Semitism.
The left freaked out.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez led the charge to defend Omar’s anti-Semitism.
The freshmen Democrat adopted the “all lives matter approach” which Democrats usually denounce as “bigoted” when conservatives say that the “black lives matter” slogan is inherently racist.
“In this administration + all others, we should actively check antisemitism, anti-blackness, homophobia, racism, and all other forms of bigotry. And the most productive end goal when we see it is to educate and heal. It’s the difference btwn “calling in” before “calling out,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.
Rashida Tlaib – another anti-Semitic Democrat member of Congress – also rose to Omar’s defense.
Tlaib – who is also a rising star in the party – tweeted, “Hard to watch Rep. Scalise demand that Rep. @IlhanMN be removed from House Foreign Affairs w/o wondering if it’s steeped in Islamophobia. Ilhan is more than capable of sitting on the committee & making decisions that are in the best interests of her constituents & all Americans.”
And top-tier Democrat Presidential contender Kamala Harris bowed to the liberal pressure and put out a statement claiming that exposing Omar as an anti-Semite puts her in danger.

Pelosi’s top lieutenants in leadership scrambled in the face of the backlash.
“We’re still discussing it,” House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said. “The sentiment is that it ought to be broad-based. What we’re against is hate, prejudice, bigotry, white supremacy, Islamophobia, and anti-Semitism.”
“Yes, we’re strongly against anti-Semitism, but we’re strongly against prejudice directed at any group,” Hoyer added.
“People are working through the draft. Not everyone has seen the draft,” House Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries, who is the fourth-ranking Democrat in the House, also told the press. “I support the notion that we need to respond, and we’re figuring out the appropriate way to respond.
By late Wednesday, Pelosi was in full retreat.
“I don’t think so, and I don’t think this is just about comments by Congresswoman Omar, which I do not think were intentionally anti-Semitic,” Pelosi declared to a group of reporters.
This incident makes one thing clear: Pelosi is not in charge of the Democrat Party anymore.
Far-left radicals – all of whom embrace anti-Semitism – now hold the reins of power.
Nancy Pelosi is portrayed in the press an iron-fisted leader unmatched in political brawling.
But this episode has exposed her as a paper tiger unwilling to stand up to the rising tide of hate coming from the left.
