Back to Videos Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee Kneels On House Floor In Support Of NFL Players Posted By Tim Hains On Date September 26, 2017

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) took to the House floor Monday night to kneel in solidarity with NFL players who chose defy President Trump and protest police brutality. Jackson Lee said you "cannot deny" that Trump calling players who kneel a 'son of a bitch' is "racism."

"I kneel in honor of them. I kneel in front of the flag and on this floor," Jackson Lee declared.

"I kneel in honor of the First Amendment. I kneel because the flag is a symbol for freedom. I kneel because I'm going to stand against racism. I kneel because I will stand with those young men and I'll stand with our soldiers. And I'll stand with America, because I kneel."

This is what the NFL is supporting.

Kneel all you want Sheila. Maybe you should kneel for the blacks killing blacks in Chicago, the massive number of aborted black babies, the slums your party created with their decades of welfare, and the high black unemployment rate. Now those are causes you, being black, should embrace.

Did it take a team from the staff of the Sgt-at-Arms to hoist her back up onto her feet?

If we really want the NFL to FAIL, we’ll need Obama to come out in support of the players. Whatever Obama supports...always FAILS!

And I'll stand with America, because I kneel."

This woman is an idiot. Kneeling is because you DON'T want to stand with America

Hey Shelia, while you are kneeling, say a prayer. Ask Tim Tebow for a few good ones.

Middle name too.

Maybe she should proverbially tear herself down and replace herself with MLK via cosmetic surgery?

Rep. Lee, I took a knee but it was because my right knee buckled and I took a fell.
