Will Finkenauer stand up to anti-Semitism?
Bob Salera | May 15, 2019

Today, Abby Finkenauer will have the opportunity to stand up to the rabid anti-Semites in her caucus by signing the discharge petition for anti-BDS legislation. Will she sign it, or cower to the bigots in her party?

Three months ago, the Senate passed bipartisan legislation to combat the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement, in a 77-23 vote. Both of Iowa’s Senators voted yes. But since then, Nancy Pelosi and the socialist Democrats in the House have blocked consideration to avoid placing the prominent anti-Semites in their caucus in a tough spot.

Here are a few of the reasons the socialist Democrats are a bit shy about confronting anti-Semitism:
