Skip to comments.Sheila Jackson Lee, in Congress: 'I Stand Here as a Freed Slave'
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.
I have no words.
Freed slave? Hell, she stands as a willing communist idiot.
Who’s stupider, Shelia Jackson Lee or Hank (Guam is gonna sink) Johnson?
Go back to your echo chamber, worthless trash.
The only way she becomes a freed slave is to leave the Democrat Party.
What an embarrassment toTexas.
Bullshit! There were more white slaves than black and we got over it! STFU!
The only thing she needs to be freed from is pizza.
What an embarrassing and stupid POS!
All the “freed slaves” I know talk about it every chance they get, especially after Hussein’s “election”.
What is she? Like 160 years old now?
She is a slave of the Left and is too dumb to know it.
And I’m a Cromwell and Potato Famine survivor.......
If we didn’t know the intelligence of Queen Sheila’s supporters we might think they would be embarrased by her neverending foot in mouth disease.
Hey, Wind. Ima linking you to the proof.
And yeah, Nachum...The bathroom.
Maybe she could also say “I stand here, a planned and wanted child..”
Oh no she couldn’t
And I survived the Kulturkampf.
From slave to slave owner.
Oh how I want a large group of black Americans to march on her office chanting “We were all born free people! Stop embarrassing us with your racist bullshit!”
She is renouncing the racist views of Al Sharpton/Jesse Jackson and the NAACP and the rest of the race hustling poverty pimps?
How miserable it must be to exist as a victim.
Good question, Graybeard53.
Sheila looks pretty good for being 160 years old...
So, this Congress “came together” and freed the slaves? I knew Lautenberg was old, but I didn’t think he was THAT old!/s;)
Nice of her to admit the FACT that the President is divisive.
okay, who freed her? why would you free her on the rest of us? what did we ever do to you?
I have a feeling there are a great number of liberal blacks who believe they are slaves and that slavery never ended.
well, you never have to blame yourself for your failures. you may even start believing you actually never do anything wrong.
Does anyone believe that any self-respecting slave owner would ADMIT to owning sheila?
“I STAND HERE AS A FREED SLAVE because this Congress came together.”
Soooo what would happened if congress never came together?
The constituents in her gerrymandered district do .... Even the dead ones...twice.
“Whos stupider, Shelia Jackson Lee or Hank (Guam is gonna sink) Johnson?”
Jackson, Johnson, flip a coin. I just hope that if and when Guam turtles that both of them are there on holiday!
Biden's keeping her out of chains too... Sheila and Biden live in 'victims forever la la land'...
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.
“I have a feeling there are a great number of liberal blacks who believe they are slaves and that slavery never ended.”
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.
What an embarrassment to Texas.”
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.
I’m surprised she has enough brain power to stand!
Ha, ha, ha! Too bad we can’t launch her into space.
Hey, I’m a Huguenot on the run! Whew, just barely escaped.
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 says that they’re down to the bone almost? Damn bitch gots sum big ass bones.
It may be her highest aspiration, but she's not a victim.
She claims a victim status that she never earned.
