Sheila Jackson Lee: Hey, why aren't you worrying about Christian militants?

That intellectual titan of the House of Representatives, Sheila Jackson Lee, said at a congressional hearing about Muslim radicalization in U.S. prisons that "investigators needed to analyze Christian militants in America because they too might try to 'bring down the country.'"

Witness Patrick Dunleavy, the former deputy inspector of the criminal intelligence unit, New York Department of Correctional Services, responded, "I don’t know that Christian militants have foreign country backing or foreign country financing. Dumbass." Oh, wait; that last bit seems to be an editorial comment added by, er, somebody else.

You know he was thinking it, though.

"Dumbass" also applies to those who voted this cretin into office.

Well now, I'm probably reading her all wrong....but, I think maybe she has an agenda. Something to do with abortion rights, perhaps?

Just a guess.

Pretty silly you look now, Paco, using up the brick, stump, and bag of rocks photos already, huh?

When Jackson Lee dies the average intelligence of the human race will increase.

I LOVE you, Steve Skubinna! May I use that line?

She's obviously related to the Life Member of Congress who 'represents' the district where I live - http://corrinebrown.blogspot.com/

Jackson Lee is a dumbass if she didn't stop to consider that a very large chunk of black Americans are fundamentalist Christians.

SwampWoman you get a big Hell YEAH. It's got ta be them baptists. Seems the preacher must'a been a tad too cautious with little Sheila. Didn't hold her under long enough...or maybe he did.

If she was a hound they would've shot her about the fifth time she treed the wrong thing. She just don't hunt.

Hey, Sheila. It wasn't a Christian that said they wanted a black flag flying over the White House.

Sheila Jackson Lee is the worst kind of "Dumbass". She is also a racist. The big problem, as I see it, is that she will be reelected in her district as long as she runs. That means that at some point she and people with the same agenda will be in senior positions in congress. That is not a good thing.
