(RightWing.org) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is caving to the racism of the radical left.
According to a report by The Jerusalem Post, Nancy Pelosi has officially endorsed Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) for reelection in 2020. Pelosi’s endorsement comes despite the fact that she and other Democrat lawmakers criticized Omar in 2019 for launching a series of hostile racist attacks against Jews.
Pelosi Endorses Omar
On July 14, Pelosi released a statement endorsing Omar for reelection despite her condemnation of the congresswoman for her antisemitic remarks in the past. The speaker called the junior representative a “valued and important Member of Caucus” and said the Democrat is already a “leader.”
The Jewish community disagrees with Pelosi’s decision and took to Twitter to express outrage.
This is what the Democrat Party thinks of its Jewish constituency. How will we respond? Please share widely. This is a window into who our friends and enemies are. @SpeakerPelosi

Omar is currently in a fight for her political life. The Democratic challenger for Minnesota’s Fifth Congressional District, Antone Melton-Meaux, raised $3.2 million in the fight to unseat the radical Leftist. Meanwhile, her campaign has brought in a measly $471,624.
Ilhan Omar’s Racist Past
It’s no surprise Omar’s challenger is raking in the dough while she fights to hang on. The congresswoman has a long history of racist remarks. Most recently, in 2019, she suggested Republicans only support Israel because pro-Jewish groups like the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) donate to their campaigns.
Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) called her remarks “offensive” because Omar was trafficking in “old antisemitic tropes about Jews and money.” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said he was disturbed, and other lawmakers spoke out too. Now, a year later, the leader of the party is standing behind someone who is clearly spreading hate.
