NTPA Alert: A War on… “Christian Militants?”

A War on… “Christian Militants?”

According to loony Congresswoman Sheila Jackson-Lee, perhaps we should be considering such a thing.

Yes, this is the same Sheila Jackson Lee who once asked if she could see a picture of the flag that Neil Armstrong planted in 1969…on Mars. She also once demanded to know why the names of hurricanes are all “lilly white” names.

Her treatment of her own staffers is legendary and few truly take her seriously. However, get a load of her latest outrage. During Rep. Peter King’s hearing on Muslim radicalization in U.S. prisons, Rep Jackson-Lee (who is a graduate of Yale Law and a former Federal Judge, believe it or not) suggested instead that:

“…investigators needed to analyze Christian militants in America because they too might try to “bring down the country.”

In an exchange with witness Patrick Dunleavy, the former deputy inspector of the criminal intelligence unit, New York Department of Correctional Services, Rep. Jackson Lee mentioned the case of a man who blew up an abortion clinic and proposed that this perhaps was an attempt to undermine U.S. law that allows a woman to procure an abortion.

Rep. Lee then said, “As we look to be informational, we should include an analysis of how Christian militants or others might bring down the country. We have to look broadly, do we not?”

Dunleavy answered:  “I don’t know that Christian militants have foreign country backing or foreign country financing.”

Not surprisingly, Rep. King wasn’t having it:

“I would just remind the members of the minority for four years they controlled this committee and they could have had hearings on any of these issues at any other time if they wanted to. I never heard any mention of any of these groups at these hearings until we held our first hearing on Muslim radicalization. I wish you would have been as attentive during the previous four years.”
