House passes "anti-hate" resolution, 407-23

The resolution, released hours after Ms. Pelosi spoke, states that “whether from the political right, center, or left, bigotry, discrimination, oppression, racism, and imputations of dual loyalty threaten American democracy and have no place in American political discourse.” It also evokes white supremacist attacks in Charlottesville, Va., Charleston, S.C., and Pittsburgh as well as numerous attacks on Muslims and mosques.

The vote on the carefully-crafted measure — one Democratic aide called it a “kitchen sink resolution” — capped an emotional week for Democrats, who found themselves divided along racial and religious lines as they debated how to respond to Ms. Omar’s remarks. And while Democrats made clear they would vote overwhelmingly in favor of it, the resolution’s all-inclusive approach disappointed some Jewish Democrats, who had pushed for a measure that would solely condemn anti-Semitism.
