Summary

Author Victor Davis Hanson weighs in on Democrats' divide over Omar's controversial comments.House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is "taken aback" by the growing dissent and anger among rank-and-file Democrats over a possible resolution to formally condemn anti-Semitism, a Democratic source told Fox News on Wednesday -- highlighting Pelosi's tenuous grip on control over the House and underscoring the growing power of the party's nascent far-left progressive wing.Pelosi even reportedly walked out of a meeting Wednesday with Democrat House members, setting down her microphone and telling attendees, “Well if you're not going to listen to me, I’m done talking."The stalled resolution originated after freshman Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, for at least the second time in recent months, ignited an uproar for echoing tropes critics have deemed anti-Semitic. By the same token, Fox is told Democrats are also concerned about making “a martyr” out of Omar if they don’t address some of her controversial comments.TRUMP, WHO MOVED US EMBASSY TO JERUSALEM, CALLS OMAR'S COMMENTS 'SHAMEFUL' AND SAYS SHE NEEDS TO GO"I've spent another week dealing with this and not on policy."Pelosi, for her part, was stunned by criticism among some Democratic members who complained they weren’t informed in detail about the resolution; freshman Rep. Jahana Hayes, D-Conn., for example, asserted the Democratic leadership team failed in its duty to inform members about the resolution's details.But senior leadership sources scofffed at that assertion, saying Pelosi spoke with multiple lawmakers all weekend long about the measure.TLAIB -- ACCUSED OF HER OWN ANTI-SEMITIC SMEARS -- TO INTRODUCE IMPEACHMENT ARTICLES AGAINST TRUMPFox News was also told one senior House Democratic lawmaker expressed concern about the influence pro-Israel interest groups have over the Democratic caucus, prompting debate about a resolution to condemn anti-Semitism in the first place. The caucus is more J Street these days.” That’s a reference to two major, pro-Israel lobbying organizations in Washington.FARRAKHAN TELLS 'SWEETHEART' OMAR NOT TO APOLOGIZE FOR SAYING JEWISH POLITICAL SUPPORT IS ALL ABOUT MONEYThe apparent tension comes as freshman Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib -- who herself has been accused of recent anti-Semitic comments -- also clashed with party leadership on Wednesday, after joining protesters to say she'd introduce a resolution this month urging the Judiciary Committee to move forward with impeachment proceedings against President Trump.
