Sheila Jackson Lee asks about ‘Christian militants’ during anti-Muslim hearing
06.15.11 | By David Edwards

When Rep. Peter King (R-NY) called a hearing on Muslim radicalism, he probably didn’t expect Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) to turn the spotlight on “Christian militants.”

But that’s exactly what she did Wednesday.

Jackson Lee noted that one witness who wrote a letter to the committee about the dangers of radical Islam in prisons had been arrested for bombing an abortion clinic.

“Are you familiar with the Christian militants?” she asked former New York Dept. of Correctional Services official Patrick Dunleavy. “Can one might say that they might possibly want to undermine this country because right now the right for women to choose is a Constitutional right but people disagree with it but here is an individual trying to undermine the protections that are given to women? Would you suggest that might be compared to trying to undermine this country? That’s a possibility, is it not?”

“Well, I think that anyone that goes about killing in the name of God is an ideologue,” Dunleavy admitted.

It didn’t have “WE BE” in the sentence, so she is getting better.

My daughter lives in Spring and has Poe for her Congressman. He seems like a pretty good guy. It is pretty strange how close that district is to TX18 and how different the people representing them are.

Samuel Clemens aka Mark Twain put it best and Ms Lee exemplifies it perfectly;

That is so painful to behold, and is quite telling of his ‘constituents’.- My hear-t goes out to that poor man. Compare in your memory that poor being and Jackson Fleas, with Barbara Jordan or Condi Rice! Why the hell did Americans elect such a shuckin’ and jivin’ commie fraud bastard as the first American black president, when there are so many great AMerican black people from whom the choice could have been made?

???????????

Which Constitution is she talking about? I don't remember an unalienable right to "premeditated murder". Therefore, there cannot be anything in the former U.S. Constitution that protects it since the former Constitution doesn't grant any rights at all!

Even among the later Amendments, that granted a few privileges, I see nothing about taking a human life.

It is truly shameful that Ms. Jackson Lee’s mother didn’t exercise her choice.... but I digress...

They've gerrymandered her distric so badly that we'll never get her out.

I've seen her district. It is unreal. I have a feeling Lord Dog Nuts may not be returning to congress after the next election. The pubs cut Travis county into five different districts.

Would you consider people who kill unborn babies in the name of “A Women's Right to Choose” ideologues?

For that you get a:

It’s no surprise that Al Sharpton doesn’t have a shovel in his hand. He’s never done an honest day’s.
