Liz Cheney: Democrats Have Become the Party of Anti-Semitism and Socialism

"They’ve become the party of anti-Semitism, the party of infanticide, the party of socialism," Liz Cheney said of the Democratic Party on Sunday.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), the chair of the House Republican Conference, blasted the Democratic Party for its defense of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), calling it the party of “anti-Semitism” and “socialism” during an interview on “Meet the Press,” on Sunday.

NBC’s Chuck Todd asked Cheney why she decided to vote against the House resolution condemning hate last week, which was put forth in response to Omar’s latest anti-Semitic comments.

“Look, I think that there were two ways we could have gone. Some of the people in our conference clearly looked at it and said there’s nothing objectionable in the resolution. My statement made clear that that was my view as well,” Cheney said. “But I decided to vote against it because I think it was really, clearly an effort to actually protect Ilhan Omar, to cover up her bigotry and anti-Semitism by refusing to name her. The Democrats have yet to take any action to remove her from her committee. And they’ve got a real problem.”

“I mean, the extent to which they are now abiding by anti-Semitism, enabling anti-Semitism in their party is something we’ve watched them struggle with, but something that’s very dangerous for the country,” Cheney added.

Todd asked Cheney what she thought about the criticism of her “no” vote among some House Republicans.

“Well, look, I think that, you know, you know how the Hill works. There are always those anonymous sources who are out there sniping,” Cheney responded.

“I think the important thing for us to be focused on and to remember [is] the Democrats have been in charge now for about two and a half months in the House. And in that time they’ve become the party of anti-Semitism, the party of infanticide, the party of socialism,” Cheney said. “They’ve passed legislation that’s violated the First Amendment, the Second Amendment. It’s really time for the Democrats, the leadership in that party to stop it, to stand up, and to act worthy, frankly, of the trust the American people have placed in them.”
