Commenting on the Democratic Party’s watered down resolution that failed to condemn Ilhan Omar’s antisemitic remarks, CNN analyst Ryan Lizza said Democrats have a harder time smacking down Democratic officials for antisemitism because the party is “much more diverse” than the Republican Party.
The remark was made in relation to President Trump’s accusation that Democrats “hate Jewish people.”
“This is Trump taking advantage of this, exacerbating the tensions within the Democratic party,” Lizza said. “Look, the Democratic party is a much more diverse party. They’re always going to have, frankly, more debate, and as the primary goes along here for the president on the Democratic side, this is going to be Trump at every single moment, lobbing grenades—whether it has to do with rhetoric from a House member or policy, he is going to be in there slamming that wedge into the Dems.”
One has to wonder at the idea that diversity translates to acceptance of antisemitism in the ranks. This is diversity? Or is it intolerance at its most basic level?
