Sheila Jackson Lee, in Congress: 'I Stand Here as a Freed Slave'
NewsBusters ^

Posted on 02/14/2013 8:47:01 PM PST by chessplayer

Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Tex.) looks mighty good for a woman who has to be at least 148 years old.

My take on her age is based on a statement the Congresswoman made today while objecting to impending spending reductions relating to sequestration in which she characterized herself as "a freed slave." Slavery as a legal institution ended in the U.S. in 1865 at the end of the Civil War. Here is what Ms. Jackson Lee said, in context (HT Rush Limbaugh):

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.

The only way she becomes a freed slave is to leave the Democrat Party.

Rush had fun with this today. He said they were trying to locate SJL's former owners, but weren't having any luck.

What an embarrassment toTexas.

No Sheila, you stand there as an ignoramus who's only in Congress because of the color of your skin. You're a laughingstock, and as such, you're too stupid to realize it.

and who would ADMIT they brought Sheila? She was probably sold on a discount because she is not worth anything. She is not even worth being sold on a KMart Blue Light Special.

Great Number? My bet is that minus the very few ( those like Allan West who have to bear the shame of these people), they all still believe that they are slaves because that’s what Jesse the Race Pimp and Little Al tell them every chance they get!

Let’s move that Rover to where our astronauts planted the flag on Mars. IDIOT! This certainly isn’t politically correct, but the collective IQ of the members of the Caucus of Color is not in triple digits. Yeah, 20 millions slaves died by being thrown overboard and the sharks are still swimming the route. Yeah, too many members of our military on an island will cause it to capsize.

With their federal pensions, insurance, perks, insider deals, and other benefits. That's some vision of enslavement to Americans without work. Or working several jobs to stay afloat but still financing her benefits with their tax dollars. Trying to decide between buying medicine or buying groceries. Paying the mortgage or the car payment. Yeah, Sheila's some victim compared to those truly enslaved by this administration's destruction of the economy.

How right you are but on the other hand, she and Shirley Q Liquor have provided a lifetime of great material for Michael Berry’s radio program. And none of it has to be embellished.

It’s hard to soar with the eagles when your city is run by the likes of SJL, the Gay Mayor, the continuous parade of incompetent, liberal chiefs of police and Quanelle X.

Is Hank Johnson the same guy who said sharks still follow the routes taken by slave ships, because (he claimed) they would throw the slaves overboard and the sharks still remember that.

She claims a victim status that she never earned.
