Nancy Pelosi at AIPAC: ‘The Full House Came Together to Condemn the Anti-Semitic Myth of Dual Loyalty’
During her speech at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee policy conference on Tuesday, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) praised the anti-hate resolution the House of Representatives passed last month. The resolution was originally a resolution against anti-Semitism in response to comments made by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).
“In our democratic societies we should welcome legitimate debate on how best to honor our values and to advance our priorities without questioning loyalty or patriotism,” Pelosi said.
“This month, the full House came together to condemn the anti-Semitic myth of dual loyalty and all forms of bigotry with a resolution that, quote, rejects the perpetuation of anti-Semitic stereotypes in the United States and around the world, including the pernicious myth of dual loyalty and foreign allegiance, especially in the context of support for the United States-Israel alliance,” she continued.
“I simply declare to be anti-Semitic is to be anti-American. It has no place in our country,” she added.
The anti-Semitism resolution was turned into one that condemned all types of hate in order to not leave a group out.
