"Nancy is a typical white feminist upholding the patriarchy doing the dirty work of powerful white men," Linda Sarsour, co-chair of the Women's March, wrote on Facebook in response to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for pushing an antisemitism resolution.

The resolution was a response by House Democratic leadership to comments made by Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar which were widely denounced as antisemitic.



Sarour supported Omar, saying "We stand with Representative Ilhan Omar. Our top priority is the safety of our sister and her family."

"You want a resolution? Condemn all forms of bigotry," Sarsour said concerning the proposed resolution. "All forms of bigotry are unacceptable."

A vote on the resolution was delayed on Wednesday and may happen on Thursday instead. The resolution may be expanded to condemn all forms of bigotry, including Islamophobia.
