Sheila Jackson Lee Compares Islamic Radicals to ‘Christian Militants’ in U.S.

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee is always good for a laugh.

In a hearing of the House Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday, Sheila Jackson Lee likened “Christian militants” to Islamic radicals, suggesting that angry Christians are just as threatening to the United States as the “Jihadists” that plot our destruction each day.

(CNSNews.com) – Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D.-Texas) likened “Christian militants” to Islamic radicals in a hearing of the House Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday, suggesting they posed a comparable threat to the rule of law in the United States.

At the same hearing, a witness told the committee that the conversion of U.S. prison inmates to radical Islam is an “evolving threat” to national security…..

But Democrats on the committee condemned the proceedings as “racist” because of its focus on Muslims. They said the hearing should focus on broader issues, including gangs, unfair sentencing practices that target young black men, and other extremists, including white supremacists.

Poor Sheila continues to stick her head in the sand and play the race card. Perhaps she truly believes that militant Christians are who we are at war with, who strap bombs to their children, who fly planes into buildings, who drive car bombs into crowded groups of innocent civilians, and who have made over 17,000 violent attacks since 9/11.

If this is what she truly believes, she should get in line behind Anthony Weiner and hand in her resignation.

  • I wonder if atheists might agree with her. There is no freedom like the freedom to believe whatever the heck you want with no laws to keep you from your beliefs. Ah, the America that once was, and that never will be again… unless we ignore our own wants and focus instead on the big picture of Liberty.

    There isn’t enough info in the paraphrase to say whether or not she makes sense, but I’m inclined to think that, while she is inaccurate, she may be on to something.

      Jason, When was the last time a Christian strapped bombs to their children, flew planes into buildings, drove car bombs into crowded groups of innocent civilians, and made over 17,000 violent attacks since 9/11???

      You are as questionable in your judgement as she is!

  • All I could think of while watching her was that I was thankful that she didn’t represent my district. Then, I was embarrassed for her district. Then I realized that those who elected her probably don’t have sense enough to be embarrassed. She did what left wingers usually do; change the subject and point the finger at someone else. Is she really as dumb as she sounds? This woman sees everything through the prism of race, gender and class. Pathetic.

    Russia Declares ‘Holy War’ On Islamic State

    The Orthodox Christian Church, which is reclaiming its traditional role in post-Soviet Russia, has just described its government’s fight against the Islamic State and other jihadi groups in Syria as a “holy war.”

    According to Vsevolod Chaplin, head of the Church’s Public Affairs Department,

    The fight with terrorism is a holy battle and today our country is perhaps the most active force in the world fighting it. The Russian Federation has made a responsible decision on the use of armed forces to defend the People of Syria from the sorrows caused by the arbitrariness of terrorists. Christians are suffering in the region with the kidnapping of clerics and the destruction of churches. Muslims are suffering no less.

    This is not a pretext to justify intervention in Syria.

    Oregon Shooting – When Tragedy Happens Let’s Focus On The Cause And Not The Tools Used

    While the blood was still dripping from those martyrs who, in front of an evil man armed with a gun, asked them if they were Christians and those strong in the faith said they were. He shot them in the head. While those who were lost or weak said nothing he spared their lives and shot them in their legs.

    Barrack Hussein Obama angrily ran to the cameras to use this opportunity to say that guns being in the hands of the law-abiding Americans is the problem, and we need to restrict the 2nd amendment to spare the lives of “we the people.”

    This is nuts; guns do not kill people, people kill people! You can test this fact in your own home right now. (Do not worry no one will get hurt).

    Gun Free Zones Are Killing Zones

    How did you feel when you heard of the shootings in Oregon this week? Was the first thing that came to your mind the thought that if we only had stricter gun control legislation, this kind of tragedy could have been prevented?

    If you listened to idiotic liberals, like President Barack “Insane” Obama, you might believe that. It is my contention that liberalism is a mental disorder based on the rejection of God and His principles, and extreme irresponsibility.

    What type of Republican Leader do you want in 2015?

    As we look at elections coming up quickly in 2015, as well as the very important 2016 election cycle, what type of “Republican” leaders do you want to shape the future of your county and country?

    Do you ever wonder why it is that the current crop of Republicans are not declaring, at every media interview, “These ills have been brought to you by the Democrat Party!” when speaking of Obamacare, the hordes of immigrants being allowed to destroy our country, the Iranian nuclear treaty, the “Black Lives Matter” racial division rhetoric, the attack on the defense of marriage, the 94 million Americans not currently in the work force,

    Child protection services Sentences Baby To Death ON 9/11/2015

    Child protection services should be self-explanatory based on the simplicity of its name. But they are doing exactly opposite of their name in many places. Wynne, Arkansas is one such place.
