Sheila Jackson Lee in the Muslim Hearings: YouTube Hit

The U.S. House's bizarre hearings on Muslims (sorry, "radical" Muslims) included a noteworthy speech by Rep. Keith Ellison, the only Muslim member of Congress, who teared up while remembering a Muslim first responder who died on 9/11.

And then there was Sheila Jackson Lee. Love her or hate her, she was pure SJL today.

The clip is quickly making the rounds of the Internet. The real fun comes around the five-minute mark.

Republican scare-mongering on: terrorists, illegal immigrants, gays, abortion-leaning ladies, union 'bosses', deficits...gosh, what am I forgetting?

Gun stealing intent, UN world domination, caliphates, Obamacare....

Given this, I'd say SJL has a lot of catching up to do if she want to pass crazy any time soon.

Love her or hate her, you're all talking about her. What other representative in Houston has the same name recognition as SJL?

houstonlissa said, "I don't see what the problem is....."

Firstly, if you don't see the problem with Lee, then you're part of the problem. Living with bats and believing her vitriolic tripe validates the time honored belief that liberalism is a mental disease. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is alive and living in Houston.

This is the same glittering jewel of ignorance who thought Neil Armstrong planted the American flag on MARS. Perhaps if some stone age member of the religion of peace beheaded her, she'd have an excuse to be brain dead.And Richey Connelly seems to have inherited SJL's brain gene. As islamist radicals continue to blow themselves and others up across the globe, Minnesota Somalis terror train in Pakistan, and Major Hasaan kills 14 fellow American military yelling allah akabar, he concludes that these hearings are "bizarre". He is a product of the decline in American education. The lefty day care centers posing as jounolism schools have stripped all critical thinking skills from their charges. He is incapable of connecting the dots.

She did mention spending time and money on human intelligence - something she definitely would benefit from.

I hate Sheila Jackson-Lee with every ounce of my being and I think that was a fantastic speech.

I applaud her honesty at calling out the bigoted nature of the panel. People might think she's self-involved or putting on theatrics, but she expressed the views of a lot of folks: this is appalling and does nothing to strengthen Muslim American ties.

Great speech. Very pointed and accurate. She made valid points, called out the haters, and gave good examples. I don't see what the problem is.....

The only thing to say is....do the people in her district not see what a pompous ass she is? Holy crap........no wonder they can't get anything done up there.

Scare-mongering? Is that the new lefty buzz phrase?

Your little divert and attack song and dance isn't going to work this time. Morons like yourself elected her. No free passes.

Shelia Jackson Lee is a real patriot. I have known her for more than 30years and she is the strongest supporter of the American people that I know. You who criticize herbetter walk a day in her shoes. She is a constitutional lawyer and knowswhereof she speaks. I also worked for the legendary Barbara Jordon who preceeded Rep. Jackson. THis congressional seat has also been held by Micky Leland. This District was the first opportunity for people of color to have a representative of their choice in the State of Texas since reconstruction after the civil war. Christians and jews and muslims have been working in harmony in this congressional district and in texas for decades. This hearing could have really dealt with all of the terrorism threats to this nation, anti-semites, racists,disaffected young men,anti-muslims,etc,etc. I applaud the congresswoman.

Not to mention she lacks respect for others. You do not try to talk over the Chairman when he tells your time is up.

You don't see what the problem is?

The problem is the American Conservative.

After this hearing, more terrorists will arise because American muslims will feel like they are not accepted in this society. Hate generates hate.

"called out the haters" I totally see why you don't see the problem.

Sheila Jackson Lee typically wins the award for "Dumbest Buffoon in Congress", but has been challenged for that prestigious position by such luminaries as Jon Carry, Hank Johnson, Barbara Boxer, and the irascible Maxine Waters who proffered the CIA introduced crack cocaine into Los Angeles to hurt black people.

If Lee is the "strongest supporter of the American people", tell that buffoon to represent only the idiots in her own district that return her to Congress. We don't need her help nor want anything from a person who still believes NASA planted the American Flag on Mars, or still believes Vietnam is a divided country. SJL is a congenital idiot!
