An Open Letter to Congresswoman Sheila Lee, Democrat of Texas
Snap Out of it America ^ | 7/30/11 | Michael Hutcheson

Posted on 07/31/2011 1:54:13 AM PDT by mhutcheson

Congresswoman Lee, I had the misfortune to hear and later read the petulant and whiney diatribe you delivered from the floor of the House on 15 July, wherein you stated, among other things, that “your community” (black people, as you see it) wanted to know why my community (white people, as you see it) are treating President Obama with such “disrespect” by not agreeing to raise taxes as part of any scheme to raise the U.S. debt limit beyond its current 14.3 Trillion dollars.

Congresswoman Lee, I had the misfortune to hear and later read the petulant and whiney diatribe you delivered from the floor of the House on 15 July, wherein you stated, among other things, that “your community” (black people, as you see it) wanted to know why my community (white people, as you see it) are treating President Obama with such “disrespect” by not agreeing to raise taxes as part of any scheme to raise the U.S. debt limit beyond its current 14.3 Trillion dollars. You asked what makes “this president different,” implying none too covertly that racism, the inevitable fallback position of your kind in any political or social discourse, is the culprit.

Let me take this opportunity to educate and enlighten you, if such a thing is possible. My “community” does not disrespect President Obama because of his black half, any more than your “community” disparages him because of his white half; neither do the significant and growing number of black conservatives, and independents of all races, object to the President because of his biraciality, as you would so conveniently assert. No, congresswoman Lee, what we all object to about the president is that he is an utterly incompetent, unqualified failure, hopelessly inept, clueless and ineffectual as concerns the economy and foreign policy, and that he is arrogantly condescending and narcissistic in his manner with those who disagree with him. What we object to, congresswoman Lee, is that his policies, in collusion with Speaker Pelosi, Senator Reid and the Democrat party, have moved this country from bad to infinitely worse in every measurable area, seriously endangering our institutions at home, our fragile standing abroad, and our very lives and futures. We object to raising the debt ceiling because, unlike you and others like you in Washington, we realize that at some point money becomes real, not just a fantasy of numbers on a page for you to manipulate; and we have decided that fifteen Trillion dollars of debt is enough!

And by the way, congresswoman Lee, did you accuse then-senator Obama of racism when he voted against raising the debt ceiling in 2006? Did you accuse him of doing so because President Bush was white? The depth of your racial hypocrisy is appalling and obvious to all.

When we conservatives are in foxholes, congresswoman Lee, we do not care about the skin color of the man beside us helping to stave off the enemy; likewise, we are not concerned with the skin color of one who is bankrupting our treasury, squandering our future, over-regulating our businesses, and attempting to exert ever more control over our lives; it is the bankruptcy, the squandering, the regulation and the attempt to control which we vehemently object to; the race of the perpetrator is irrelevant to us. And if President Obama were not just biracial but three fourths white, fully white or even doubly white, we would still have exactly the same objections to his policies for exactly the same reasons. Namely, that his illogical and oft-discredited policies, combined with his inexperience and his stumbling, bumbling political ineptitude, has been an unmitigated disaster for the country. It is bad enough that this is the case; the fact that you and other transparently racist apologists on the Left want to excuse his culpability so that history can record his false success at any price, or at the very least divert responsibility for his failure as the first ‘black’ president, makes things infinitely worse.

Yet you and your Leftist-liberal ilk predictably and inevitably resort to the only tactic you know when reason, rationality and the effects of failed policies confront you with their inconvenient truths: playing the race card. Your race-baiting rhetoric and the motives behind it are as divisive and harmful, as transparent and empty, as your political ideology; your moral and ethical standards of discourse are as bankrupt and dangerously hollow as your intellect. Your accusations of racism, congresswoman Lee, are shameful, pathetic, tired, cliché, unconvincing, irresponsible, and as irrelevant as you are. You are a laughable parody with an inflated sense of self- importance. You are an embarrassment to your district, your state, your “community,” and to me as an American. And, for the record, you would be, even if you were white.

You are probably unaware that you are consistently and widely acknowledged as the least intelligent member of congress, thanks to the many inane utterances emanating from your various rants as well as other mangled verbal rhetoric. Did you not once ask a NASA administrator whether the Mars explorer probe would photograph the American flag which “Neil Armstrong had planted” there? Didn’t you, a member of congress from Texas, no less, have to be embarrassingly told what every fifth-grade pupil knew, that astronauts had not planted an American flag on Mars because no astronauts have been to Mars? Seemingly every time you open your mouth, you reaffirm the validity of the general view of your intelligence, which is, frankly, an acknowledged buffoonery. The fact that someone of your dangerously limited capacity could ever sit on such congressional committees and sub-committees as Homeland Security and Judiciary is, for most of us, extremely frightening.

So continue, if you wish, to whine racism as the be-all-end-all to every challenge you encounter in private as well as political life; that exposes the extent of your intellectual ability and the depth of your political skill; but here’s a clue: it no longer works. We are no longer intimidated by Leftists’ desperate race-baiting and baseless accusations. We have heard them hurled so often, under such disparate and ridiculous circumstances, that you have rendered them completely meaningless. We are not the racists, you are. We are going to fight you and your destructive, counter-productive and disastrous policies, and those of your party and the president, despite your ‘poor oppressed me’ whining and your racial intimidation. We are going to fight you and them, not because of your color, but because of your politics. And we are going to win.

Good ‘rant’.

To the point. I only hope you ‘Typed it real slow so she could get the full effect’ of whoever would be reading to her.

Having a ‘half black’ person is a great way to blame every misfortune on racism.

Much along the same lines as being against B Frank is in ‘their world’ tantamount to being ‘anti-gay’.

In today’s world, one cannot dislike a person for ANY reason, it always reverts to his race, religion or preference in life style.

If ‘these people’ had any continuity or credibility, they would refer to me as “anti white” when I rail against a White Politician that I can not tolerate because of his stand on certain issues.

To call me a Racist for not voting for a black person because he is black and not calling YOURSELF a Racist FOR voting for a black person just because he is black is Hypocrisy run amok.

Ms Jackson’s constituents, much like Maxine Walters’ in LA have basically NO CLUE as to the person, they just know when they ‘need’ something those two are amongst a handful that ‘band together’ to keep themselves in office.

If not mistaken, Waters extorted cash payments for her ‘unemployed (huh??)’ constituents that was eventually linked to the Rodney King legislation....

THAT is the kind of stuff their people hear about and applaud, because she managed to ‘Stick it to Whitey’.

Chris Rock did a routine where he says his father “Told him to go down to Wall Street and escort those business people to and from the subway, keeping the thugs away from them, because as long as they were working, bennies would continue to pour into their community” (the gist of it).

Exactly, it's 6 paragraphs to long and needs pictures.

To assert any person of color is any less intelligent than any random white person is of course racist. That whole IQ thing is inherently racist /sarc off

I'm not sure about that. Maxine Waters, Barbara Lee, Debbie Motormouth Shultes... there are many more to consider for that low dishonor.

Any mention of Sheila Jackson Lee reminds me that after her non stop trashing of George W. Bush, she was there on the aisle, in the House of Representatives, to smile for the cameras, as she shook the hand of the same man she supposedly hated, as he entered the chamber to give a state of the union speech.

The president, of course, shook her hand and greeted the fat, ugly, b1tch respectfully.

Houston Blacks are to blame for voting repeatedly for this Communist from New York. What a stupid laughingstock they choose to represent them! Too bad the state of Texas can’t over-ride the choice of voters too ignorant to exercise their vote responsibly.

Good question — it’s not like they actually READ the bills they vote on.

Sheila Jackson Lee might not read this but a lot of other people will and a smile will come to their faces. It’s about time such sentiments were expressed loudly and clearly. The whole point of Idiot Sheila’s brain-dead rant was to intimidate. This rant shows it didn’t work.

In the next Congress, TX18 will be 18% non-Hispanic white,
41% black, 36% hispanic - 97% of hispanics in this district are caucasian (that’s high), 6% other.

I’m not sure how many of the hispanics are illegal.

Sheila Jackson Lee
Member of the U.S. House
of Representatives
from Texas's 18th district

On a visit to the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in 2005, Jackson Lee made embarrassing news by asking if the Mars Pathfinder had taken an image of the flag planted there in 1969 by Neil Armstrong.[2]

Prior to the 110th Congress, Jackson Lee served on the House Science Committee and on the Subcommittee that oversees space policy and NASA.

Hello all,

Thank you for your responses.

As some have pointed out, I am new to this forum and now feel quite welcomed. Thank you for that as well.

It has come to my attention that I made a mistake in posting my first two posts, but thanks those of you who shared your how-to tips. The next one will be perfect.

Interesting that you mention affirmative action, I recently wrote about that as well: “Affirmative Action President Defines Failure Down” http://snapoutofitamerica.wordpress.com/2011/06/20/affirmative-action-president-defines-failure-down/

Let me know what you think of that.

I think a valuable study would be to develope a psychol ogical profile of beneficiaries of affirmative action. I would not be surprised if most of these beneficiaries displayed narcistic traits with little tolerance for valid criticism. Also these beneficiaries have a greater tendency to view everything through a racial prism - a good example was Michelle Obama's Princeton thesis which, by the way, was exceptionally poorly written.

It would be very interesting to compare the profiles affirmative action beneficiaries to the psychological profiles of African-Americans who have risen through their own achievements such sport stars and entertainers.
