Nancy Pelosi’s office has been the landing spot for protesters pursuing causes on both sides of the political aisle since the beginning of the year when the new session of Congress convened. Today’s gathering was a mix of ideology, with both pro-Israel and pro-Ilhan Omar supporters chanting for their favorites.
Pro-Israel demonstrators poured into Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office Thursday, calling on her to condemn Rep. Ilhan Omar and antisemitism. They were interrupted by two pink-clad “Stand with Ilhan” counter-protesters.
Rabbi Aryeh Spero of the National Conference of Jewish Affairs organized the sit-in and from outside Pelosi’s office, went after the speaker’s failure to condemn Rep. Omar’s most recent antisemitic comments or even antisemitism itself.
“She failed us. She had a chance to condemn Omar. She didn’t. She had a chance to condemn standalone, by itself, antisemitism. She didn’t,” said Rabbi Spero. “This was a turning point to stand up and do what was right, what was just, what was fair, and she didn’t.”
After the Rabbi’s comments outside of the office, protesters streamed into Pelosi’s front office.
The group began chanting, “Stand with Israel.”
A pink-clad counter-protester responded with shouts of “Stand with Ilhan” while brandishing a “Stop Islamophobia” sign.
“Hey, hey, ho, ho, Omar must go,” the sit-in demonstrators began chanting shortly thereafter.
“When it comes to antisemitism from the left, all the Democrat groups are silent,” said Rabbi Spero.

One thing is for certain – Nancy has her hands full. The trio of AOC, Omar, and Tlaib have been keeping her very busy trying to tamp down their (relatively youthful) enthusiasm. AOC is going great guns with the Green New Deal, Tlaib wants to “impeach the motherf****r” in the White House, and Omar is digging a hole for the party with her unrepentant anti-semitism.
Something that always comes to mind when someone starts talking down about Israel is a certain Bible verse from the book of Genesis Chapter 12:
The Lord had said to Abram, “Leave your native country, your relatives, and your father’s family, and go to the land that I will show you. 2 I will make you into a great nation. I will bless you and make you famous, and you will be a blessing to others. 3 I will bless those who bless you and curse those who treat you with contempt. All the families on earth will be blessed through you.”
There is a lot of history that proves the truth of that statement, and I wouldn’t be surprised to find that the video and news coverage we are getting now that exposes the politicians for who they really are is actually going to be the instrument of their destruction. I have to believe these ladies are the best campaign tool the Republicans have going for them. Even the Jewish voters who have traditionally voted Democrat for decades are abandoning the party. The big push is already starting for the next big election – it’s barely 18 months away – and I expect it will be almost the political equivalent of a barroom brawl before it’s all over.
My book is here! And I personally handed a copy to our President at the White House!!! I hope you enjoy it
