Some media folk thought it was “embarrassing” that some Republicans voted against Thursday’s House resolution condemning every form of hate speech imaginable and that they’d have a hard time explaining that vote.
Rep. Liz Cheney was one of the “no” votes and had no problem whatsoever explaining her vote, issuing a statement immediately following the passage of the resolution.
BREAKING: Liz Cheney releases a statement:
"Today’s resolution vote was a sham put forward by Democrats to avoid condemning one of their own and denouncing vile anti-Semitism."

It really is that simple. The Democrats couldn’t even agree to pass a resolution denouncing anti-Semitism that didn’t even mention Rep. Ilhan Omar, who was the reason Democrats thought they needed a resolution in the first place. Omar even ended up voting for what should have been a censure of herself, it was so watered down.
She's absolutely correct.

It’s unbelievable that condemning an obvious Anti-Semite has become this big of a circus!

Everything the Democrats do is a sham. Instead of calling a proven anti semite out they put a joke of a bill out there to divert attention from the real problem. https://t.co/dtKThEOamw

That would have been the right decision but democrats are such cowards that they prefer supporting a racist, bigot anti semite than accepting their responsibility. They have sunk very, very low

MSNBC posted a list of all the House Republicans who had the spines to reject this bogus resolution; let’s applaud them:
