Sheila Jackson Lee Thinks Slavery Ended in the 1960s

Sheila Jackson Lee, the dumbest woman, mammal and oxygen breathing lifeform in Congress, is there to serve as an example to the dumbest of Americans. A role model that proves that even if you can’t tell the difference between Mars and the Moon and think that the United States won the Vietnam War and that hurricanes should be named after black people… you can still have a rewarding career saying stupid things.

But at least Sheila Jackson Lee didn’t drink any water.

Jackson Lee suggested lawmakers should take inspiration from President Lincoln’s leadership during the Civil War.

“I stand here as a freed slave because this Congress came together. Are we going to be able to do it today to free America?”

It’s natural for Sheila Jackson Lee to be confused. Lincoln did just come out and Sheila probably thinks that he freed the slaves and fought vampires.

The only problem is that Sheila Jackson Lee confused the 1860s with the 1960s when she was actually growing up. Considering that she didn’t know how the Vietnam War ended, that’s not completely shocking, but you would think that she would remember that as a child she did not live on on a plantation.

Sheila Jackson Lee was from the slave-owning state of New York, from a plantation in Jamaica, Queens. (While Jamaica did have slaves, Jamaica, Queens did not, again accounting for Sheila Jackson Lee’s confusion.) (And yes, sorry guys, our state inflicted her on Texas.)

Sheila Jackson Lee’s mother slaved away as a nurse at a Salvation Army Hospital and her father drew horror comics. Her maternal grandfather was a Pullman porter in Florida.

Jackson Lee’s advice from her mother was that, “No matter where I found myself in this life I needed to be someone who gave respect to others and by my actions receive respect from others.”

It’s a pity that Sheila Jackson Lee didn’t take that advice, instead building a career of constantly embarrassing herself with her ignorance and her ridiculous attacks and attention-mongering. Sheila Jackson Lee has not given others any respect and has received none even within her own party.



I think we all know how she got elected.

Idiots always vote for other idiots.



“I stand here as a freed slave because this Congress came together. Are we going to be able to do it today to free America?”

Jackson Lee was one of a handful of Democrats who took to the House floor to warn that the $85 billion in cuts to 2013 spending in the sequester, due to take place in March, would devastate people who rely on government services.

I'm mad that you didn't add this to a thread I put up a while ago about putting names to faces. What's her voting record by the way? The other question is how do these people get people to vote for them? It's more to it than saying idiots vote for idiots. Psychology has to play a factor into it.

People do link the period from slavery and segregation together and say it's slavery. So yea you could say that you aren't truly free if you cn't really exercise your rights. How does Michele Bachmann keep getting reelected? And John Boehner for that matter?

The right to vote is not comparable to being a slave with no rights at all, no right to choose who you marry, no right to own property, earn money, shop, freely travel, nothing, and you could be beaten withheld food, etc with no legal recourse. That is very different from not voting. Every person under 18 cannot vote. My wife cannot vote because people from Japan and Germany have to give up their citizenship to do so and to get citizenship in the US cost you thousands of dollars and many years of waiting. Do not apologize for this moron by saying well Black people were basically non-citizens in the 60s. This lady didn't know the difference between the moon and Mars. She didn't know when slaves were set free. She routinely mangles English grammar. She is an idiot. That was the point of the post, that such a moron can make it all the way to congress. That doesn't take anything away from the civil rights movement. If someone said the genocide of Native Americans was in the 2005 a hundred years after the end of that happened, the remark would not have its ignorance erased just because it is true centuries of evils have been bestowed on Native Americans.

Point well taken.
