Institutionalized racism is rampant in American politics and it's perpetuation is a permanent part of the Democratic platform.
Never mind the actual history of racism, let's save time and acknowledge that racism exists on both sides of the aisle, it serves no purpose to suggest or argue otherwise. It IS however a feature and platform of the leftist progressive movement to perpetuate it's existence, and to pretend that their insistence that it is the exclusive "fault" of the right, or anyone who disagrees with or challenges their stand on ANY MATTER essentially boils down to either racism, misogyny, homophobia or some combination thereof. What is most disturbing about this is that it goes completely unchallenged and that under the Obama administration is growing in effect and popularity, and it's influence grows wider encompassing more "issues" each day.
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) is as dumb as a box of soap, and loves to cite pure fiction, make unchallenged and outrageous claims of racism and is now making a platform of of "equality" for the invasion across our Southern border. As a "freed slave" she is a self-proclaimed expert on racial suppression.
Lee "believes the border crisis is not a national security threat, despite gangsters having already been apprehended along the United States-Mexico border."
In fact, Jackson Lee waved a bag of lollipops during a Thursday House Homeland Security Field Hearing in McAllen, Texas, and said she took bags of such lollipops to the illegal immigrant children in detention centers during recent visits.
"This is not a national security crisis," Jackson Lee emphasized, noting that she was not armed and did not fear for her life when visiting the children. Jackson Lee said Border Patrol agents claimed the children were some of the most "orderly" and "behaved" children they have encountered.
In 2011 before the House Committee on Homeland Security on radicalization in American Muslim communities it was the suppression of Muslims as reported by The Daily Caller.
“I brought with me the Constitution, the living, breathing document. The First Amendment allows us the freedom of religion. The freedom of association and expression,” she said. “But I will tell you today, that this breathing document is in pain.”
Turning to Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, the head of the American-Islamic Forum for Democracy and a witness at the hearing, she asked, “Mr. Jasser, may I just ask, are you a Muslim?”
“I’m a devout Muslim who prays and fasts and tries to raise my kids to be conservative orthodox Muslims, yes I am,” he replied.
“Thank you, sir. Are there any other Muslims on the witness table?” she asked. There were.
“The reason why I ask that question is because Muslims are here cooperating,” Jackson Lee said. “They are doing what this hearing has suggested that they do not do! It is an irony and an outrage that we are wasting time when Muslims are sitting before us, a Muslim is on this panel, a Muslim has testified, so I question, where are the uncooperative Muslims?”
Jackson Lee concluded her time with a final word against the hearings:
“Millions of Americans find community, comfort and support in their faith. That includes President Obama, who is a Christian but spoke in Cairo. So today reminds us that being religious is never un-American! Being religious is quintessentially American. God bless America!”
Curious that she would bring the US Constitution with her to Congress, the implication of course is that she has exclusive and better "knowledge" of it than others present at the hearing. It's pretty evident otherwise, “Maybe I should offer a good thanks to the distinguished members of the majority — the Republicans, my chairman and others — for giving us an opportunity to have a deliberative constitutional discussion that reinforces the sanctity of this nation and how well it is that we have lasted some 400 years, operating under a constitution that clearly defines what is constitutional and what is not.”
She sees racism behind any "issue" or subject you could name, including gun control “Don’t condemn the gangbangers, they’ve got guns that are trafficked -- that are not enforced, that are straw purchased and they come into places even that have strong gun laws." “Why? Because we don’t have sensible gun legislation.”
Lee has been a long time supporter of Obamacare, and the extension of Obamacare to illegal aliens, and that anyone who brings any kind of challenge to Obamacare is by definition both racist and a misogynist and are the same as those who opposed civil rights reformation.
Lee of course wants nothing to stand in the way of Obama's desired reforms and changes for America, no matter the issue as long as a way can be found for Obama policy to go forward, regardless of impact or legality:
“give President Obama a number of executive orders that he can sign.”
Jackson Lee added that writing up executive orders “should be our number one agenda.”
“We will be answering the call of all of America because people need work and we’re not doing right by them by creating work,” the Texas congresswoman said. “I believe this caucus will put us on the right path and we’ll give President Obama a number of executive orders that he can sign with pride and strength,” Jackson said Jan. 29 at a press conference where she and fellow Democrats launched the Full Employment Caucus.
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee is one of many I could name, including any number of the members of this questionable body of "believers"
