History is Hard. For Rep Sheila Jackson-Lee
Actually, not just history is hard for Congresswoman Jackson-Lee (D-TX). It appears as if thinking itself is rather difficult for her. After watching this, I couldn’t decide if I was wiping away tears of laughter or tears of dismay at the state of our alleged representatives in Congress. Via RedState:
Oh, my. Representative Sheila Jackson-Lee is on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. No, really. These are the people in charge of our health care now. How comforting!
It has been pointed out that the one thing she got correct was the number of American troops killed in Vietnam, therefore, she couldn’t have been confusing Vietnam with North and South Korea. Which makes no sense anyway — North and South Korea clearly do not live in harmony. Well, clearly if you are not a damn fool. Additionally, surely the culturally sensitive Jackson Lee wouldn’t confuse two separate cultures and peoples like that, would she? I mean, she’s the one who thought having racially diverse names for hurricanes was of the utmost import.
I expect that next Sheila Jackson-Lee will regale us with more historical tales like “It all ended well, as we know. Brutus and Caesar became super best friends forever!”: The worst part? That wasn’t the only idiotic thing she said this week. As Hot Air notes, Gateway Pundit has her remarks from the NAACP meeting, as follow below:
And I thank you professor very much. I’m going to be engaging you with those very powerful numbers that you have offered on what the tea party recognizes, uh, or is recognized as. Might I add my own P.S.? All those who wore sheets a long time ago have now lifted them off and started wearing [applause], uh, clothing, uh, with a name, say, I am part of the tea party. Don’t you be fooled. [voices: “That’s right.”, applause] Those who used to wear sheets are now being able to walk down the aisle and speak as a patriot because you will not speak loudly about the lack of integrity of this movement. Don’t let anybody tell you that those who spit on us as we were walking to vote on a health care bill for all of America or those who said Congresswoman Jackson-Lee’s braids were too tight in her hair had anything to do with justice and equality and empowerment of the American people. Don’t let them fool you on that [applause]….
Sorry, Representative Jackson-Lee but the only fool I see here is you. By the way, another History is Hard moment for you, Ms. Jackson-Lee — the Ku Klux Klan was a Democrat group. And the man you all recently lionized upon his passing, Senator Robert Byrd, was heavily involved in the KKK and was even an “Exalted Cyclops.” But, that’s cool, huh? Because George Bush. Or something.
What delusional, alleged thinking is next, Democrats? Y’all will try to tell us that oil spills and terrorism can be stopped, if only we had more windmills?
Somewhere in Texas, a village is missing its idiot. I think we’ve found her!
