Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee Likens Islamic Radicals to 'Christian Militants' in U.S. Thursday, June 16, 2011 By Penny Starr
(CNSNews.com) Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D.-Texas) likened "Christian militants" to Islamic radicals in a hearing of the House Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday, suggesting they posed a comparable threat to the rule of law in the United States.
At the same hearing, a witness told the committee that the conversion of U.S. prison inmates to radical Islam is an evolving threat to national security.
Michael Downing, the head of counter-terrorism and special operations at the Los Angeles Police Department, was one of three witnesses who testified at the hearing on Muslim radicalization called by Rep. Peter King, a New York Republican.
But Democrats on the committee condemned the proceedings as racist because of its focus on Muslims. They said the hearing should focus on broader issues, including gangs, unfair sentencing practices that target young black men, and other extremists, including white supremacists.
King rebuffed those criticisms, telling Democrats that they controlled the Homeland Security Committee for four years, yet they did not call one hearing on any of the issues they claimed should be part of Wednesdays hearing.
Suddenly this issue emerges when we start talking about Muslim radicalization, King said. The purpose of this committee is to combat Islamic terrorism because that is the terrorist threat to this country, King said.

"I believe that if I hear one more black politician hollering about how the United States is no damn good, and nobody in it is any damn good, and everyone discriminates against blacks, and denies them opportunity, and represses them, and doesn't do everything they want, and expects them to behave, I'm going to start bellowing."
I before e except after C.
This is what passes for intelligence on the Left.
That is similar to likening Jackson-Lee’s brain power to that of Albert Einstein.
The Congressional bonehead award goes to Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) who, on a visit to JPL, asked if Mars Pathfinder had taken an image of the flag planted there in 1969 by Neil Armstrong! Quipped Rep. Vernon Ehlers (R-MI) to the Washington Times: We just dont teach enough science. Worse, Jackson Lee, who represents Houston, is a member of the House Science Committees space subcommittee. Perhaps some committee reassignments are in order
If that’s truly the case, why isn’t she saying that Islamic terrorist are like Christian terrorists?
"Did the Mars Pathfinder probe take a picture of that flag Neil Armstrong planted on Mars in 1969?" - Sheila Jackson-Lee
She makes me ashamed to be a Texan!
She must be talking about the Rev “God D*mm America” Wright, since he hates the country as much as the islamic radicals.
Why? She was neither born, nor raised here. She's a carpetbagger.
One thing I really hopes happens is her district and it will be redistricted then and only then will she be out..and maybe we would not have to look at her ugly face again..
The only people dumber than Sheila Jackass Lee are the morons who vote for her. I wonder what most of them have in common...?
SJL cant do that. Even a transplanted Texan sees that. Besides, Ill trade the two critters from my last home city environs Waxman and Waters any day for ONE SJL. SJL is more stupid than evil; its a close call, but still more stupid.
I mean we HAVE to have her here in Houston. She provides no end of entertainment when Michael Berry lites into the congressWOMON. This is going to be a fun week for local talk.
Every time she opens her mouth nothing ut stupid comes out.
She should know by now that nobody cares what the stupid person says or does.
In her case it confirms that in some people stupid goes all the way to the bone.
Liberal White Guilt
She lives here, represents a portion of our citizens, and is part of the Texas delegation.
This is the kind of thing that Leftist tenured professors dream up. people in the real world should put down the pipe and realize that the Islamic radicals are the real threat and start profiling *gasp*
It works in Israel, it'll work here.
What SJL fails to understand that is that protections that are given can be taken.
Oh yes, I remember being allowed to stay up late at night to watch this historic event. It was right after the civil war ended. Sherman signed the surrender papers at Appomattox a couple of days before Hirohito released war criminal Teddy Roosevelt back to us in exchange for giving him Eastern Europe after the war.
I’m gonna blow chunks! Wonder if Queen Shiela was down for the struggle? Wonder if her arse was hosed, was her ignorant head ever bashed in? I doubt it. She’s a product of a more than willing America to try and right it’s past wrongs so idiots like her can get along in life much better than those even in the early 60’s and bash this county and bytch about how bad blacks have it today. It’s YOUR party that’s responsible for “your people” to be in the shape that some are in today. I’m ashamed to be from Houston just because of this moron-ess but I moved out to the outskirts years ago.
The only “Christian” militants I know of are the Westboro Baptist “Church” gang and they’re all democrats! The Rev. Wright was/is quite militant too.
White Christian militants, of course.
Science. Interesting huh?
Uh, they are not white?
What would SJL know about real Christianity? I’ll bet the only time she goes to church is to rally black voters to re-elect her. To her ilk, churches are nothing but useful tools to herd the sheep to socialism.
Sheila’s district is a gerrymandered creation that includes certain hoods of inner city Houston.
And she is NOT a Texan. She is from Queens, New York.
I thought "carpetbaggers" went out of style around 1874? Silly me!
I saw this article and this illustrates why we should be worried about the patriot act.
In the end we, all of us who believe in freedom in this country will be lumped in with the terrorists. Tea Partiers, 2nd Ammendment types, etc.
I always felt the patriot act was a scam that was put into place to lock us all down - and you can see via this lunatic; Sheila Jackson Lee, and her cohort. Janet Napolitano, we are building a nightmare country run by “Homeland Security” and their TSA thugs.
Definitions of “Terrorism” will be used to lock this country down - and the best thing the bad guys have are conservatives who act as enablers under the banner of patriotism for all these new laws and procedures - we are building our own cage.
Michael Berry on Houston radio is on her case all the time about stupid statements she makes. It is hilarious! I know she must really hate him.
