Getty Images The 23 Republicans who voted against the anti-hate resolution Twenty-three Republican lawmakers voted against a resolution condemning anti-Semitism and other forms of hatred on Thursday, arguing the measure was "watered down" and failed to properly condemn Rep. Ilhan Omar's (D-Minn.) recent controversial remarks on U.S.-Israel relations.

    The 23 Republicans included: Reps. Andy Biggs (Ariz.), Mo Brooks (Ala.), Ken Buck (Colo.), Ted Budd (N.C.), Michael Burgess (Texas), Liz Cheney (Wyo.), Chris Collins (N.Y.), Mike Conaway (Texas), Rick Crawford (Ark.) and Jeff Duncan (S.C.).

    The list was completed by Reps. Louie Gohmert (Texas), Paul Gosar (Ariz.), Tom Graves (Ga.), Pete King (N.Y.), Doug LaMalfa (Calif.), Thomas Massie (Ky.), Steven Palazzo (Miss.), Mike Rogers (Ala.), Chip Roy (Texas), Greg Steube (Fla.), Mark Walker (N.C.), Ted Yoho (Fla.) and Lee Zeldin (N.Y.).

    Meanwhile, Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), who was stripped off his committee assignments for remarks he made regarding white supremacy earlier this year, voted present.

    The measure was initially expected to condemn anti-Semitism, but it was ultimately delayed due to tensions within the Democratic caucus over the language in the resolution.

    It was later revised to also condemn discrimination against "Latinos, Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders, and the LGBT" as well as "African-Americans, Native Americans, and other people of color, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, immigrants, and others."

    Zeldin, a Jewish member of Congress who previously sparred with Omar, argued the freshman congresswoman should have been identified in the text of the resolution, noting it is not the first time the House has voted to rebuke controversial remarks that were seen as anti-Semitic.

    "In January, we came to this chamber, we condemned white supremacy, we named a Republican member, we kicked that member off his committees. He can't serve on the Small Business Committee, but this member will continue to serve on the House Foreign Affairs Committee," he said on the floor ahead of the vote, comparing King to Omar.

    "But no, now we can't come here and just emphatically, solely, forcibly condemn anti-Semitism and name names. But if it was a Republican we would. It's time to call out these things for what they are: pointed, bigoted, unreasonable, illegitimate, anti-Semitic."

    Cheney - a member of leadership, who currently serves as the House Republican Conference chair - said that while she stands "wholeheartedly against discrimination outlined in this resolution," she felt it failed to address the "issue that is front and center."

    "Rep. Omar's comments were wrong and she has proven multiple times that she embodies a vile, hate-filled, anti-Semitic, anti-Israel bigotry. She deserves to be rebuked, by name, and removed from the House Foreign Affairs Committee so that there is no mistake about the values and priorities that the House stands for," she said.

    "For Democratic leadership to kowtow to their radical members and refuse to offer legislative language that criticizes Rep. Omar's statements in the strongest possible manner confirms what we already knew: that their party is controlled by far-left extremists who can't even muster the courage to stand up to blatant anti-Semitism."

    Almost all of the lawmakers who voted against the measure, with the exception of Massie, voted in favor of a motion to recommit condemning anti-Semitism earlier this year.
