RUSH: Do you know there is a freed slave serving in Congress? Grab audio sound bite number seven. Yep. There is a freed slave serving in the US House right now. A freed, f-r-e-e-d, slave is serving right now in the House of Representatives. Just to show you that slavery is still alive and kicking, we have a freed slave. (interruption)
Well, you say it's impossible? Listen.
Here is a portion of remarks made by the freed slave currently serving in the House of Representatives -- it happened yesterday -- on the House floor.
LEE: We are at the bone almost. And sequester that is across-the-board cuts will literally destroy us and put us in a recession. I don't want to hear the fact that the president is divisive. The President is leading and he has led well. The American people are listening. When are our friends on the other side of the aisle going to listen? I want to challenge this body to be the kind of "Lincolness attitude." As yesterday was the official birthday of President Lincoln, February 12, and although it was a tragic time in our history, I can assure you that it shows the greatest promise of America when people could come together and do something great. I stand here as a freed slave because this Congress came together.
RUSH: And the words there are Sheila Jackson Lee from Houston who stood there as a freed slave because this Congress came together. And if we could free Sheila Jackson Lee from slavery, then why can't we free every African-American? Why can't we let Chris Dorner go? Why did we have to keep him a slave in the LAPD? We've made this guy into what he turned out to be. We forced him to do this. And now he has shined the light of truth on the fact that this ongoing sin, this original sin, continues, unabated every day. Sheila Jackson Lee has been freed. Isn't it time to free the rest?
RUSH: We're not having much luck here, folks. We've been doing exhaustive research in the last four minutes. We're trying to find out who owned and who sold Sheila Jackson Lee and what they got for her. She said on the floor of the House of Representatives ... she was standing there as a freed slave because this Congress came together. I didn't think they were coming together at all. She talked about the Congress during Lincoln, but anyway, she's a freed slave. Somebody had to own her, and we don't know who.
Obviously, you know, with the makeup of culture today, didn't have to be Houston, owner did not have to be where she lived. Could be owned by anybody. What if a drug company owned her? You know, what if Big Oil owned her and she didn't know about it. Somebody freed her, though. We will keep looking to try to find out who owned her, who sold her, and what they got. I have to tell you, though, in all candor, I think she looks pretty good for her age. She's gotta be over 110. You'd never know it.
It’s nailed on.
No, she’s exempt from driving to work. She rides a stretch Limo two blocks to work every day. They shut down the streets and everything.
She wants her reparations. Her 40 acres and a mule. And 10 billion dollars.
That’s about it in a nutshell.
She’s the best they can manage.
I still want to see the shackles that she was wearing.
Who WOULDN'T vote for her if you were a black in her 95% black district !
Her district's voters are NOT stupid. WE are, it looks like.
Dang! That makes her at least 150 years old.
When will the current Administration free the American
People! Four years of strife and broken dreams!
And Four more to come from policies of a Failed President that has no clue to regain prosperity to the Free World that has given life, blood, and tax dollars to the world but cannot take care of it’s own!
All of the Obama rhetoric in the world will not help this Nation! We have given this President the luxury of a King and now you have one that will not work for the populace but to tear it down!
A Nation that has not been so divided prior to the era of Honorable Abe Lincoln who saw fit to preserve the Nation, a man of wisdom that brought us to the threshold of the new age, United, Strong, and Future bright with the promise that we would never be divided again. All one has to do is look at the poor SOTU the great imposter has touted as a lie to be sound!
Wake up America!
Then the Martians let her go, and she hitched a ride on Fair-a-con’s UFO to Houston...
Since Africa is the only continent on which slavery is still openly (legally) practiced, which African country did Fat Mama say she was from?
I think she’s confusing being disassociated from reality with being freed.
She looks pretty good for someone who is over 150 years old. She seems to forget that it was the Republicans who freed the slaves, with a great deal of opposition from the Democrats.
He’s right. I take it a step further. I’m half Cherokee. Yes, it breaks my heart what was done to the people, but I decided at a very young age (reading history, I understood that nothing stays the same in any part of the world) that this is the world that I live in now and I was going to enjoy the freedom and opportunities afforded me in this country. I was happy that I had been born here. When someone would ask me why I don’t take advantage of the gov’t help for native americans, I would reply, “It didn’t happen to me, I can take care of myself in this world and I think it’s insulting to me imply that I need extra help”.
Just imagine how much abuse she would have gotten if she reached for a glass of water...
We are one, we Americans, and we reject any intruder who seeks to divide us by race or class. We honor cultural identity. However, separatism is not allowed. Separatism is not the American way. And we should not permit ideas like political correctness to become some fad that could reverse our hard-won achievements in civil rights and human rights. Xenophobia has no place in the Democratic Party. We seek to unite people not divide them and we reject both white racism and black racism. This party will not tolerate bigotry under any guise. Americas strength is rooted in its diversity.

Queen Sheila isn’t worthy of polishing the shoes of Barbara Jordan. Not on her very best day.
Sheila has never even seen a boll of cotton, let alone picked one.
