I’ll make this quick and hope for all of your efforts to publicize this as much as possible. We don’t have much time!
The hide-bound, AIPAC supported, Democratic establishment is terrified of being out-Israeled by the Republicans. In response to Rep Omar’s comments, we (Democrats!) are planning on introducing a resolution that, while not calling her out by name, will serve to rebuke her Truth-to-Power remarks. While perhaps not perfectly framed (‘dual allegiance’ has an unfortunate history), her comments serve an important purpose and are infinitely more acceptable than, for one of many instances, ‘$teyer”.
I just now emailed my Representative (Chris Pappas) asking him to resist the resolution. I had previously tried to email Speaker Pelosi but it seems that all Representatives now limit receiving emails to only those people that are in the Representative’s zip-code(s).
So, I’m asking any of you that agree to email your own Rep as soon as possible. The vote could potentially happen as soon as tomorrow. A simple request to resist the resolution unless it includes rebukes for remarks that are homophobic, racist, anti-American, religiously intolerant, etc. would be fine.
You can find your Representative here: www.congress.gov/…
Update: It turns out that you CAN email Speaker Pelosi! Many thanks to:
