House Unanimously Passes Antisemitic Resolution


The House voted 424 to 0 in passing a resolution against antisemitism. Two Republicans voted present and there were 9 people who didn’t vote. You can easily guess most of them.

Ironically, on the same day as the resolution was voted on Ilhan Omar gave Elliot Abrams a grilling on an 1981 massacre, he had nothing to do with. Abrams also happens to be Jewish. Omar asked him if he thought the massacre was a shining moment in US history.

Abrams answered loudly and distinctly, “No.” Omar then said, “I’ll take that as a yes.” I wonder if she would have asked that question with the same answer if the witness were a Muslim instead of a “dirty Jew.”

The House voted 424-0 with two GOP members voting present, according to a spokesperson for House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy. Republican Reps. Thomas Massie of Kentucky and Justin Amash of Michigan were the two who voted present.

“In a defining moment for the U.S. House of Representatives and the country as a whole, Republicans and Democrats voted as one today to condemn anti-Semitism around the world, to denounce all attempts to delegitimize Israel’s right to exist, and to oppose efforts to impose boycotts on Israel,” McCarthy said in a statement. “Amid the troubling rise of anti-Semitism, including attacks on synagogues and Jewish cemeteries, it is our duty as a nation to stand firmly against intolerance and division. This overwhelmingly positive and cohesive vote shows there is no place for anti-Semitism in any form, anytime, anywhere.”

According to The Hill, the motion reads that, “it is in the national interests of the United States to combat anti-Semitism at home and abroad. With an unfortunate rise in anti-Semitism and attempts to delegitimize Israel, the United States House of Representatives must emphasize the importance of combating anti-Semitism and reject all movements that deny Israel’s right to exist.
