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.
