“…Who’s that yonder dressed in black? Must be the hypocrites turnin’ back…”

Representative Vicky Hartzler (r) [2016 file photo].

This afternoon on Twitter from Representative Vicky Hartzler (r):

Rep. Vicky Hartzler@RepHartzler
#SorryNotSorry House Dems unsure whether to condemn anti-Semitism, pull HRes 186. Again. #ThursdayThoughts
12:33 PM – 7 Mar 2019 from Washington, DC

And one commenter was having none of it:

Lynz @ln_simmons
I had some #ThursdayThoughts myself, in fact, on this very same issue.

You’re #HypocriteHartzler for sure—sounding off about Anti-Semitism but then casting votes against prohibitions against it.

Pathetic. #movemo4ward #DoBetter4MO
[….]
1:50 PM – 7 Mar 2019

So, we followed the commenter’s trail – ending with a House vote on February 13, 2019:

FINAL VOTE RESULTS FOR ROLL CALL 83
H J RES 37 YEA-AND-NAY 13-Feb-2019 4:28 PM
QUESTION: On Passage
BILL TITLE: Directing the removal of United States Armed Forces from hostilities in the Republic of Yemen that have not been authorized by Congress
[…]
—- YEAS 248 —
[….]
—- NAYS 177 —

Hartzler

—- ANSWERED “PRESENT” 1 —
[….]
—- NOT VOTING 5 —
[….]

[emphasis added]

Included in that resolution:

[….]
(11) It is in the national security interest of the United
States to combat anti-Semitism around the world because–
(A) anti-Semitism is a challenge to the basic
principles of tolerance, pluralism, and democracy, and
the shared values that bind Americans together;
(B) there has been a significant amount of anti-
Semitic and anti-Israel hatred that must be most
strongly condemned; and
(C) there is an urgent need to ensure the safety
and security of Jewish communities, including
synagogues, schools, cemeteries, and other
institutions.
[….]

Hypocrite.
