Democrats Who Refused to Condemn Hamas Supporters – FULL LIST

Twenty-two Democrats in the House of Representatives voted against a resolution to condemn Hamas supporters in American universities following the rise in the conflict in the Middle East.

The resolution was introduced by Republican Rep. Burgess Owens of Utah last month and was passed with 396 votes for to 23 against, with 14 not voting.

It condemned “support of Hamas, Hezbollah, and other terrorist organizations at institutions of higher education, which may lead to the creation of a hostile environment for Jewish students, faculty, and staff,” and “antisemitism” on college campuses.

Those who voted against the motion included several progressive Democrats who have expressed support for Palestinians living in Gaza.

Here are the Democrats who refused to condemn Hamas supporters:

Earl Blumenauer, a Democrat for Oregon

Jamaal Bowman, a Democrat for New York and member of “The Squad” of progressives in the House

Cori Bush, a Democrat for Missouri and another Squad member

Andre Carson, a Democrat for Indiana

Maxwell Frost, a Democrat for Florida

Jesus G. ‘Chuy’ Garcia, a Democrat for Illinois

Jared Huffman, a Democrat for California

Jonathan L. Jackson, a Democrat for Illinois

Pramila Jayapal, a Democrat for Washington state

Summer L. Lee, a Democrat for Pennsylvania and a Squad member

Thomas Massie, a Republican for Kentucky. He said of his decision to vote no that there was no agreed definition of antisemitism, adding: “Free speech means protecting speech you don’t like, not just speech you do like.”

James P. McGovern, a Democrat for Massachusetts

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a Democrat for New York and founding member of The Squad

Ilhan Omar, a Democrat for Minnesota and another Squad founding member

Ayanna Pressley, a Democrat for Massachusetts and a further Squad founding member

Delia C. Ramirez, a Democrat for Illinois

Mark Takano, a Democrat for California

Rashida Tlaib, a Democrat for Michigan and founding Squad member, who is of Palestinian descent

Ritchie Torres, a Democrat for New York

Lauren Underwood, a Democrat for Illinois

Nydia M. Velazquez, a Democrat for New York

Maxine Waters, a Democrat for California

Bonnie Watson Coleman, a Democrat for New Jersey

As Newsweek reported:

Bush, Bowman, Carson, Lee, Ocasio-Cortez, Omar, Ramirez, and Tlaib were previously among those to vote against a motion condemning Hamas for the October 7 attack, which killed an estimated 1,400 Israelis, including many civilians.

Many of those who voted against either resolution have publicly condemned the attacks by Hamas and Islamic Jihad.

Since the outbreak of violence, tensions have been bubbling across U.S. college campuses over expressions of support for Palestinians, which in some cases have spilled over into expressions of support for Hamas’s actions and overt antisemitic threats.

At Harvard University, 31 student groups wrote in an open letter that Israel was “solely responsible” for Hamas’s attack, something that has lost some students job offers.

George Washington University has come under fire after controversial pro-Palestinian messages were projected onto a library—including the slogan “Glory to our martyrs”—while a Jewish alumni of Columbia University has threatened to pull his funding of the institution over its handling of tensions on campus.
