Anti-Semitism in House Must Be Seriously Addressed
Anti-Semitism, racism, white supremacy, and hateful speech have no place in the House of Representatives.
When a Member of Congress violates these principles, appropriate action must be taken. As recently as January, that included a resolution unequivocally condemning the Member of Congress and his comments and removal from all committees.
Now, we have a Member of Congress who continually chooses to use anti-Semitic rhetoric, and House Democrat leadership refuses to directly acknowledge the problem. Instead of strict condemnation, they have hemmed and hawed over the intent of the statements made. Democrats have handed out allowances for inexperience and youth, adding insult to injury for millions of Jewish Americans. Worse yet, Nancy Pelosi has allowed this Member of Congress to remain on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
This week's watered-down resolution included the Democrats’ kitchen sink, but did not lend support to Christians, Mormons, and many other groups that face regular discrimination in this country and abroad.
House Democrats must take bigotry of all kinds seriously, not just instances that fit their progressive liberal agenda.
A Vote Against the Democrat Politician Protection Act
Almost weekly now, House Democrats are continuing their assault on the United States Constitution with bill after bill designed to put the federal government at the center of every aspect of our lives. H.R. 1 supersedes states’ Constitutional rights by putting the federal government in charge of elections, weakening our voting system with one-size-fits-all solutions.
Worse yet, this legislation uses taxpayer dollars to create a campaign slush fund for politicians. Tax dollars should be used to provide critical services to the American people, and I fail to see how handing out taxpayer money to politicians benefits the hardworking American people who have entrusted us to do right by them.
This is an egregious constitutional overreach. I urge my Democrat colleagues to reevaluate their priorities moving forward and remember the document that is the basis of our great nation.
As always, you can follow me on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.
Rep. Mike Conaway, 11th District
