There’s a civil war brewing in the Democratic Party, and it’s all been caught on video. This confession proves that Speaker Nancy Pelosi is losing control of her own caucus.
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) has accused Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats of “Islamophobia” for their reaction — which was incredibly mild, at best — to the anti-Semitic comments of her fellow House colleague, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).
“In an interview on CNN, Jake Tapper asked, “Are you suggesting, just help me understand here, are you suggesting that Democrats who took issue with Congresswoman Omar’s comments did so because of anti-Muslim bias?”
Rep. Tlaib responded, “I think that’s part of it.” After a brief exchange, she then asked, “Is it because she’s a black Muslim? Is it because it’s around the issue of human rights violations from the country of Israel? I don’t know.”
It is truly the twilight zone when Tapper starts grilling a liberal, but never doubt his allegiance: He’s a committed member of Team Pelosi. Anyone who threatens her grip on power becomes target number one for Tapper and CNN.
Of course, whereas Pelosi is dangerous because she represents the status quo of the DC swamp, extremists like Tlaib and Omar are dangerous for their anti-Semitic views and hatred of Israel. The new radicals are in control of the party now.
