Steny couldn't bring himself to use the word holocaust when speaking before Congress about the fact that Antisemitism has lead to many grievous results in the past. In a disturbing speech that was more forceful for what he did not say than what he did say. “We are against bigotry, we are against prejudice, we’re against hate, against whomever that is directed," House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) told reporters before the resolution was unveiled. The fate of the resolution had been uncertain for much of Thursday, as Hoyer and other top Democrats worked with all corners of their caucus to find an acceptable path forward to rebuke Omar's contentious comments, without appearing to target her personally. Just hours before the vote, the internal political furor broke into the public as numerous Jewish lawmakers condemned their leadership's decision to broaden the language to encompass all hate, rather than focus squarely on Omar's anti-Semitic remarks.
