It was only a matter of time before these imbeciles tore each other apart…
The four far-left congresswomen belonging to “The Squad” divided up on Tuesday in a House resolution voting against attempts to delegitimize the State of Israel and the movement for anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS).
The anti-BDS resolution passed overwhelmingly in a 398-17 vote with five lawmakers voting “present” and 12 lawmakers not voting.
Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, both well-documented anti-Semites, voted against the resolution predictably.
What has largely been ignored by the media is how Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley voted.
Ocasio-Cortez supported her anti-Semitic peers and voted against the resolution while Pressley broke “the Squad” and voted in favor of the resolution.
Most of these names who were unwilling to condemn even the concept of BDS are unsurprising. But to see @chelliepingree once again siding w/the extremist anti-Israel members of the caucus is stunning. pic.twitter.com/jpR5jHr4rb

Multiple news organizations — including CNN, The Washington Post (AP Wire), The Hill, and Politico — did not report that Ocasio-Cortez sided with the anti-Semites or that Pressley broke away from her far-left Justice Democrats.
Omar proposed a resolution last week “supporting the right to boycott Israel, likening the boycott of the Jewish state to boycotts of Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union,” Fox News reported. “Omar’s resolution seeks to push back against U.S. laws banning the boycott of Israel and affirms the right of Americans to organize boycotts of foreign countries if they so wish.”
The Free Beacon noted that Tlaib compared the anti-Semitic BDS motion to the boycott of Nazi Germany.
“The right to boycott is deeply rooted in the fabric of our country,” Tlaib said. “What was the Boston Tea Party but a boycott? Where would we be now without the boycott led by the civil rights activists in the 1950s and 60s like the Montgomery bus boycott and the United Farm Workers Grape boycott?”
“Americans boycotted Nazi Germany in response to dehumanization, imprisonment, and genocide of Jewish people,” Tlaib continued. “In the 1980s, many of us in this very body boycotted South African goods in the fight against apartheid. Our right to free speech is being threatened with this resolution. It sets a dangerous precedent because it attempts to delegitimize a certain people’s political speech and to send a message that our government can and will take action against speech it doesn’t like.”
