Two of NM’s three U.S. reps. refuse to vote to condemn antisemitism

Two out of New Mexico’s three congressional representatives refused to vote to condemn and denounce “the drastic rise of antisemitism in the United States and around the world,” with Congresswoman Melanie Stansbury (D-NM-01) being the only member of the delegation to vote for the measure.

The measure read that the U.S. House “strongly condemns and denounces all instances of antisemitism occurring in the United States and globally; (2) reaffirms and reiterates its strong support for the Jewish community at home and abroad; (3) calls on elected officials and world leaders to condemn and fight all forms of domestic and global antisemitism; (4) clearly and firmly states that anti-Zionism is antisemitism; and (5) rejects all forms of terror, hate, discrimination, and harassment of members of the Jewish community.” 

Reps. Gabe Vasquez (D-NM-02) and Teresa Leger Fernandez (D-NM-03) voted “present,” while 311 members, including Stansbury, condemned and denounced antisemitism. Fourteen members voted against condemning antisemitism. Both Leger Fernandez and Vasquez did not have the stomach to take a stand against a rising barrage of hate and violence targeting Jews.

The same antisemitism both representatives have refused to condemn has shut down bakeries, canceled menorah lightings, and forced Jewish teachers into hiding, to name only a few instances of the rabid wave of violence. 

National Republican Congressional Committee spokeswoman Delanie Bomar wrote following the shocking vote, “It shouldn’t be hard to condemn antisemitism, but apparently, for Gabe Vasquez, it’s too heavy a lift. Voters in New Mexico deserve better than this.”

Vasquez faces a tough 2024 election to keep his seat, with GOP former Congresswoman Yvette Herrell running to reclaim her former place in Congress after the far-left Democrat won in 2022 by around 2,000 votes. National leaders have come to Herrell’s aid in campaigning as Vasquez flounders with votes that will likely harm his reelection chances, including refusing to condemn antisemitism and refusing to vote for measures to curb sky-high prices for American consumers.

    What an absolute joke! So it’s anti-Semitic to show this was as false flag and that Israel is genociding the people of Gaza. Look at the proof below and try to refute it.

    Proof that Israel deliberately ALLOWED Hamas to come in. (See video link below)

    Israel knew that Hamas was planning this for a year but yet moved their forces from Gaza to the West Bank two days before the attacks.

    Israel made false claims of 40 Beheaded Babies

    There is no proof Palestinian fighters ‘beheaded’ babies. The only source is a radical settler.

    1. Most of Congress is bought and paid for. They love money. They don’t give a crap about morals or faith or any of that. They get bribed by Israel and they do their bidding. That’s why they give standing ovations to Netanyahu but tear up the speech of President Trump.

    2. Let’s see if I get this right. You say that because the Israelis were not there to stop the invasion (by whatever conspiracy theory), then Hamas’ invasion and atrocities were justified. Correct? By the way, since you like posting subjective links, take a look at this. It’s a little long, so either you watch it all or you prove you are too lazy to root out the facts….

        Myles, I call this Building 7 2.0 from 9-11. Just like 9-11, Israel was the masterminds behind creating this false flag also. I looked at a little bit of you video. Your boys, Amir Tsarfati and Pastor Gary Hamrick, never address how Hamas was able to blow 15 holes in the security wall of Gaza with no immediate response from the IDF. The best surveillance system in the world, which can detect a small animal by the wall but not 15 holes blown up in their walls and then they stood down for 7 hours! Talk about the elephant in the middle of the room. Here are testimonies from Ex IDF that say there is NO WAY this should have happened. It’s called due diligence Myles. Like I’ve said before to others on this blog, you’re the type of guy who would say Building 7 was NOT demoed.

            Yes, but let’s get some facts straight.

            Fact: Gaza is an open aired prison and the Palestinians were oppressed and under siege for the last 16 years. Israel controlled all the ports in Gaza Strip and had total discression on what came in and out of Gaza. Under International Law the Palestinians have a right to defend themselves. The only way that Hamas could trigger any type of negotiations was through taking captives and violence.

    3. Wow, what credible sources you have, including one a Russian propaganda site. No wonder people like you are confused, considering where you get your news.

  2. Zionism is a POLITICAL MOVEMENT started by the secular jews who fled eastern Europe, most of whom were atheists and socialists. It was conceived by Theodore Herzl and others from the late 19th to early 20th century. It was one of many regions they were considering for a new zionist state.

    Did you know that most jews opposed zionism in its early days? They thought it would make jews a target and they had worked hard to integrate into the communities they were in and wanted to lay low. So were they anti-Semitic against themselves???

    So this article is completely IGNORANT of history, and moronic. And Republicans have become nothing but PAWNS who LOVE MONEY!

    Has nothing to do with faith!!!!!

    1. Very good, JT. You just happen to be historically correct. When the desire to simply relate verifiable history becomes “anti-semitism” then I guess a lot of us become anti-semites as a result. I don’t think the author of the article or his apologists even understand what the term “Semitic” refers to.

  3. Disgusting that so many people support a hateful, murderous, barbaric terrorist organization and people over a thriving, free democracy. While Israel isn’t perfect, the Palestinians, especially those of Gaza, are genocidal, murderous maniacs. They started this war and Israel is pounding them into the ground as a result.

      CAB: Disgusting that so many people support a hateful, murderous, barbaric terrorist organization…

      WGN: I agree but it’s not Hamas it’s Isra-hell. You need to do some due diligence here CAB and learn the TRUE context of what is going in Israel.

          Such a shame Clare. Of course you can’t refute my facts.

          “… he that refuseth to learn, shall fall into evils.” (Prv. 17:16)

    1. William George Norris

      Oh, so if a Jewish person does something wrong and breaks the law I can’t call them out, Mario? This is antisemitism? WHATEVER! Get a clue!

    1. William George Norris

      Thank Myles, I’ll take the free publicity. I stand behind EVERYTHING that was written in that article.

      “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (Jn. 8:32)

    2. Thank you for the link. I have wondered who/what norris aka the vicious anti-Semite was and this informative article provides the answer: Ignorant psychopathic cultists/fanatics driven by hate.

        1. My original comment is factual enough. I will only add that I am not a psychiatrist which, clearly, you need. Any further replies to me will be ignored.

          1. William George Norris

            Just calling people names without facts is factual enough? Wow! So I can go around and say Nancy Tannenbaum is ten foot tall with two heads with no proof and that’s OK.

  4. You can be against Benjamin Netanyahu and keeping people in an open air prison while bombing them and also love jewish people as God’s creation.

    To accuse people for being racist just because they don’t oppose a POLITICAL idea surrounding a POLITICAL state is the most absurd thing the “GOP” has ever come up with.

    In fact it’s exactly what they accuse the left of – CENSORSHIP. So you call out the left for crying Racism but then you turn around and do the same thing.

    1. William George Norris

      Amen JT! In recent years conservatives have RIGHTLY condemned Social Media for its censorship of conservative values. But now that Israel is being criticized they turn on a dime and declare censorship on any one who criticizes Israel. What hypocrisy!

  5. Kudos , JT and William J Norris , you are correct. AIPAC (the pimps) putting Congress (their) paid whores In check for a public relations ploy is nothing new. The Tail has wagged the dog in America for decades , that’s why we have forever wars and every type of degeneracy and now complicity in the genocide of real semites.

  6. This article reflects such ignorance. While we are busy calling people “anti-semites” it might be good to make a list of just which ethnic groups comprise the designation “Semitic”.

      “Yet no man spoke openly of him, for fear of the Jews.” (Jn. 7:13)

      “(The Jews) Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and the prophets, and have persecuted us, and please not God, and are adversaries to all men;” (1 Thes. 2:15)

      “Serving the Lord with all humility, and with tears, and temptations which befell me by the conspiracies of the Jews;” (Acts 20:19)

  7. William George Norris

    Like I’ve said before, I think that Christian Zionists are some of the dumbest people in the world. First of all, they wrongly believe that modern day Jews are still the “Chosen” people of God. Look at how the New Testament condemns them:

    “Know ye therefore, that they who are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.” (Gal. 3:7)

    “For you are all the children of God by faith, in Christ Jesus.” (Gal. 3:26)

    “That is to say, not they that are the children of the flesh [racial Jews], are the children of God; but they, that are the children of the promise [Catholics], are accounted for the seed.” (Rom. 9:8)

    “He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, he gave them power to be made the sons of God, to them that believe in his name.” (Jn. 1:11-12)

    “Who is a liar, but he who denieth that Jesus is the Christ? This is Antichrist, who denieth the Father, and the Son.” (1 Jn. 2:22)

    “But their senses were made dull. For, until this present day, the selfsame veil, in the reading of the old testament, remaineth not taken away (because in Christ it is made void). But even until this day, when Moses is read, the veil is upon their heart.” (2 Cor. 3:14-15)

    “And the whole people (Apostate Jews) answering, said: His blood be upon us and upon our children.” (Mt. 27:25) The curse of Deicide.

    “Jesus therefore said to them: If God were your Father, you would indeed love me. For from God I proceeded, and came; for I came not of myself, but he sent me: Why do you not know my speech? Because you cannot hear my word. You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and he stood not in the truth; because truth is not in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father thereof.” (Jn. 8:42-44)

    “(The Jews) Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and the prophets, and have persecuted us, and please not God, and are adversaries to all men;” (1 Thes. 2:15)

    Secondly, they act as if Jews can do no wrong just because they are Jews. The Old Testament totally refutes this.

    “And the children of Israel again did evil in the sight of the Lord after the death of Aod,” (Jdg. 4:1)

    “And the children of Israel again did evil in the sight of the Lord: and he delivered them into the hand of Madian seven years.” (Jdg. 6:1)

  8. The CCP loving democrat marxists have been successful. The way to destroy a country is to get the media to lie so that the citizens do not know what the truth is or who to trust. Most citizens do not trust the media nor do they trust the government. Unless we elect a person for the people into the presidency our nation will be destroyed. many believe the opposition party are the devil or total idiots. Either way the two options are to have another civil war or we step back to find a way to bring our country back. Make our government and media accountable for their mis deeds. Failure to do so will mean our children and grandchildren will not have the same rights, chances, freedom, and power we and our parents do now. Failure is not a good option.

  9. Did you really expect any of the Biden-Loserjan regime to vote to protect America or vote to keep the Hamas from terrorizing the world?

  10. Reviewing all of these comments just to see if we can discern who knows what the term “Semite” refers to. I may or may not endorse some/all of the views of those who understand the term. I simply want to note those people who seem to understand the definition:

    W.G. Norris

    Given the context of his use of the term one is led to conclude that the author himself lacks understanding of the term. This lack of basic understanding is what makes these conversations absurd.

  11. Yeah Norris, poor palistinians and their hamas/hezbollah masters. Hundreds of billions have been given to them and they’re still ignorant savages who worship a pedophile madman from the 7th century.
    Then Israel left Gaza they were given orchards in greenhouses producing good jobs, good incomes and healthy food – and they destroyed it. Their SKOOLZ, built and supported with more billions of donations and they produce more sad sacks who become dumb bombs who cry “from the river to the sea, blah blah blah” More billions are donated and their hamas/hezbollah masters live in stolen luxury while their “people” live in squalor, dirt streets, no water systems, no infrastructure, no nothing but hate for the Jews who give them food, water and electric out of pity, and they’re so stupid they bite the hand that has tried for decades to show them a better way.
    hamas/hezbollah live in luxury in their rat hole tunnels, with stolen food, water, air conditioning and power, safe to rape kidnapped women, or boys, or goats, or each other while their “people” are above them being bombed into oblivion.
    norris, you go on and on – ad nauseam – about how bad the palistinians have it so WHY won’t any of their fellow Arabs & Muslims take them in? They have the room, the money, similar culture, same religion – WHY norris? Could it be that wherever they go they’re a virulent POS that thrive on their perpetual victimhood. Egypt, Jordan. Lebanon. Syria. Qatar. Libya. EVERY ARAB STATE WHO HAS COME TO THEIR RESCUE – has ended up in a civil war to boot those whining, thieving cutthroats out of their country.
    Do me a favor, don’t bother to reply. I don’t want to hear it. Instead of bitching at me, SELL OUT AND MOVE THERE.

  12. Surprised Mr. Norris has time to post his fake/members only/ outdated websites/links, from FAKENEWS Jew-hating non-entities… while bowing 5 times daily in the direction of Mecca. Or is it Adolf’s ‘tomb’. Here are some pertinent facts from history and today’s ‘peaceful religion/cult’ …

  13. Hey John: maybe you could ban such trolls? Obviously they should be commenting on mediamatters and Or maybe they are spending to much time licking Hillary’s not-so privates.

    1. Absolutely! Ban them! Silence them! What they say is offensive to my ears so I say demonize them and cast them into the outer darkness. That’s the New American Way! We only want to read comments from people who agree that Zionists are the Master Race and that they were justified in expropriating that chunk of earth and expelling or imprisoning the people they displaced. Come to think of it, that is the American Way, huh?
