Do the Democrats have an anti-Semite problem?

If something keeps happening do we describe that as a problem or not?

Over the weekend, Rep. Rashida Talib (D-Mich.) was speaking on the Yahoo News podcast "Skullduggery", when she described her feelings when thinking of the Holocaust. She said it was 'calming'.

"There’s always kind of a calming feeling, I tell folks, when I think of the Holocaust, and the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the fact that it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways, have been wiped out, and some people's passports." I could get int the historical inaccuracies here, but I don't think that's really the point.

Then there is last week, when Imam Omar Suleiman of Irving, Texas, was introduced by Speaker Pelosi to deliver the prayer from the rostrum in the House. That happened on Thursday, but surely she didn't know who this man was? He has compared Israelis to Nazis and terrorists and called for a violent uprising praying that Allah will welcome the Martyrs. Oh and he's also an extreme anti-gay bigot.

Then of course there is the well-documented anti-semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar.

So do the Democrats have an anti-Semitic problem?
