After Thursday’s kerfuffle in the U.S. House of Representatives over anti-Semitic comments made by freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), America’s esteemed lawmakers passed a bill condemning bigotry against nearly everyone- except white Christians.

“While it most frequently cited anti-Semitic and anti-Muslim bigotry, the resolution also condemned bigotry toward black Americans, Latinos, American Indians, Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders and other people of color, Hindus, Sikhs, people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, and immigrants,” according to The Star Tribune, a Minnesota paper.

The fact that white christians were left off of the list is telling, and did not go unnoticed by some members of House.

Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) refused to vote for the resolution for that very reason.

“The failure to specifically state opposition to discrimination against Caucasian-Americans and Christians, while reflective of Socialist Democrat priorities and values, is, by omission, fatal to the bill,” he said.

Omar has made a string of anti-Semitic comments which have been excused by Democrats who do not care about racism, as long as its committed by a member of their own party. For further proof, see Virginia’s Democrat Governor Ralph Northam, who is still in office despite Big League Politics outing him for dressing up in blackface or as a klansman.

Omar’s recent comments were in reference to Israel’s lobbying power.

“We are tremendously proud to be part of a body that has put forth a condemnation of all forms of bigotry including anti-Semitism, racism, and white supremacy,” Omar said in a statement along with Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Andre Carson (D-Ind.) “At a time when extremism is on the rise, we must explicitly denounce religious intolerance of all kinds and acknowledge the pain felt by all communities.”

By “all communities,” Omar apparently meant all except the white community.

FLASHBACK: Three Recent Supreme Court Justices Were Confirmed Within 45 Days

There’s ample precedent for a quick confirmation.

Published

There are 45 days until the November 3rd presidential election, and there’s ample precedent for an expedited confirmation of a Supreme Court Justice in such a timeframe following a vacancy.

Ruth Bader Ginsberg died on Friday, setting up a possible contentious confirmation process to fill her seat. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is pledging that a tentative Trump administration nominee for the position will receive a vote on the Senate floor, despite outrage and indignation on the part of progressives falsely maintaining that McConnell is breaking precedent he set by refusing to confirm Merrick Garland. President Obama tried to get Garland confirmed when the opposing party controlled the Senate, a divided government that does not exist in 2020.

Ruth Bader Ginsberg herself was formally nominated by President Clinton on June 22nd, 1993. Her confirmation process began on July 20th, and she was confirmed on August 3rd, with a total of 42 days elapsing between her nomination and confirmation.

John Paul Stevens’ nomination was advanced and confirmed in a speedy 19 days, and Sandra Day O’Connor was confirmed in 1981 in a total of 33 days.

In fact, every single Supreme Court nomination of the past 45 years was nominated and voted upon within a shorter duration of the time remaining in Donald Trump’s first presidential term.

There’s actually wide precedent for nominating and confirming a Supreme Court justice within the confines of President Trump’s first term, and Democrats are being untruthful or erroneous to suggest otherwise.

McConnell is beginning initial work to advance confirmation hearings, with potential liberal Republicans such as Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, and Lisa Murkowski presenting themselves as possible holdouts. It is possible to approve a judge with 50 votes in the Senate and a Vice Presidential tiebreaker.
