Sheila Jackson Lee Pulls Race Card in Debt Debate

Democrats just can’t help it. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-TX certainly can’t help it. When policy debates go against them, they accuse their opponents of racism.

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) on Friday strongly suggested that members of Congress are making it difficult for President Obama to raise the debt ceiling because of his race.

“I do not understand what I think is the maligning and maliciousness [toward] this president,” said Jackson Lee, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus. “Why is he different? And in my community, that is the question that we raise. In the minority community that is question that is being raised. Why is this president being treated so disrespectfully? Why has the debt limit been raised 60 times? Why did the leader of the Senate continually talk about his job is to bring the president down to make sure he is unelected?”
–Politico, 7-15

Stunning remarks wouldn’t you agree? What are Republicans supposed to do . . . help Obama win re-election? It’s mighty hot this summer. Do we need these type of inflammatory remarks. Or is this another shot across the establishment bow, a warning that this hot summer could be a longer and hotter summer. Is there anything left in Detroit to burn that anybody would miss? No, decades of Sheila style governance destroyed that city (and many others).

Ms. Jackson-Lee doesn’t have a reputation for being the sharpest knife in the drawer. That’s not racist. It’s fact. She is full of rude and full of attitude.

Maybe one day before too long, the race card will go away. Maybe the mainstream media will finally cast it away. Maybe black America will decide they don’t need that crutch.

Hope and change? Fade to black.

  1. This is from the same party that brought us the Bush-Hitler comments and every other off the wall anti-American sentiment. Now that will get them all worked up into a lather by questioning their patriotism. The problem is their version of patriotism is of the “anti” sentiment.

    Over the last few years one thing I have noticed is; if you listen to what they say and what they accuse others of doing, it’s the very same thing they are doing. Obama did it during his presser recently.

    This is also the same party who spent money on their buddies or I feel “bought off their voting block” under guise of the stimulus.

    Now that the US is expressing concern over the debt, here comes the Dem’s to the rescue.

    Dems’s = no morals, no ethics, etc. Sorry, got my soapbox there didn’t I?

  2. Hey, soapbox is good. Taking that passion inside the party in your precinct is better. 🙂

    We need to be about rescuing America and never about buying a voting block. The Donks need to have an exclusive on that.

  3. texasgalt, for people like Ms. Lee, pulling the race card is far more preferable to them than acknowledging the truth that President Obama is by far the most socialist-minded President we’ve ever had.
    I visit some black conservative websites from time to time. They’re getting hit really hard by the high unemployment, but it is actually causing more black community leaders to speak out about the need for black people to become more self-reliant rather than government-dependent.

  4. Who is it who said, “racist? Yes I admit to being a racist against Obama – but it’s not the Nigerian half he got from his father, it’s the White Marxist half he got from his mother, that I dislike.”

  5. Remembering the video clips of about a year or so ago when the racist Jackson Lee dissed a white constituent by talking on her cell phone during a townhall meeting when the constituent was trying to ask her a question.

  6. SJL is just a real case. She’s currently being sued by one of her own (former?) staff for employer some raging abuse and maltreatment for which she is -allegedly – quite famous. She’s working hard to earn the Marion Berry Award for Outrageous Behavior in a Politician, Justifying Perpetual Incumbency from Her Clueless District.
