This is not remotely an accurate description of what happened.

Omar said something that a bunch of people pretended to be outraged by. Republican braying jackasses were calling for her to step down. Democrats morphed this call to action into a resolution condemning anti-semitism and anti-Islamic bigotry. All Democrats, including Omar, had no trouble supporting this resolution. Republicans were painted into a corner here. Most of them voted for the resolution so as not to blow the cover on their faux outrage against anti-semitism. Some couldn't even do that like King (IA) and Gosar (AZ) among others.

This wasn't a public shaming of Omar. She voted for it. Happily.
