One GOP Rep Votes Against Antisemitism Resolution

Newsweek reports:

Republican representative from Kentucky cast the only vote against a House resolution honoring Jewish Americans’ heritage and denouncing a rise in violence motivated by antisemitism.

Representative Thomas Massie was the sole vote against the resolution, which passed the House with 420 votes. Although the resolution passed overwhelmingly with bipartisan support, eight Republicans abstained from voting.

The resolution notes that conspiracy theories maligning Jewish people have led to mass killings, particularly 6 million that died at the hands of the Nazis.

Mediaite reports:

Massie is fresh off a landslide Republican primary win on Tuesday, where he notched 75% of the vote. Former President Donald Trump endorsed him in his reelection bid, despite the fact Trump had previously called for Massie to be thrown out of the GOP.

During the early phases of the Covid-19 pandemic, Massie attempted to delay a vote on a $2.2 trillion rescue plan. That irked Trump, who tweeted, “Throw Massie out of Republican Party!” In another tweet, he called the congressman a “third rate grandstander.”
