Jackson Comes Unhinged Over Criticism of ‘Patriot’ Soros

During a heated Thursday House Judiciary Committee hearing, unhinged Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee lost it while defending prominent left-wing billionaire philanthropist George Soros as a “patriot.”

The moment came following critical comments made by a Republican on the committee, Rep. Thomas Tiffany (R-WI), who noted any sanctuary city in the U.S. would “almost certainly” have a “Soros prosecutor” over its jurisdiction.

“Let me ask you this: first of all, we have accusatory commentary of Soros DA’s. Let us not put an individual that is not here, a contributing American, and jeopardize his life, or always throwing his name out in the most ugliest of ways,” Jackson Lee said before beginning her questioning of one of the law enforcement witnesses at the hearing focused on crime associated with criminal illegal immigrants.

“I am offended by that. Mr. Soros does not deserve that. He is an American and a patriot, and he also comes from a minority community, one might say, and you create a dangerous situation. That’s unfortunate,” she added.

A patriot? Arguably no single living person has wielded so much subversive influence over this nation than Soros, who funds radical causes, open borders politicians, and pro-crime prosecutors, mayors, and governors. Defending him as a patriotic American tells you everything you need to know about Sheila Jackson Lee and her comrades in today’s Democrat Party.

Over the course of her career as a legislator, Jackson Lee has often accused her political opponents of racism. For example:

  • During a 1997 visit to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California, Jackson Lee, who was then serving on the House Science Committee and on the Subcommittee that oversees U.S. space policy, asked a guide whether the Mars Pathfinder would be able to show an image of “the flag the astronauts planted there before.” When it was subsequently pointed out that the flag to which she was referring was in fact the one that Neil Armstrong had planted on the Moon—not Mars—in 1969, Jackson Lee complained that she was being mocked by bigots. “You thought you could have fun with a black woman member of the Science Committee,” her then-chief-of-staff wrote angrily in a letter to the editor.
  • In July 2010, Jackson Lee spoke at an NAACP meeting where she derided the conservative Tea Party movement as a racist phenomenon, saying: “All those who wore [Klansman] sheets a long time ago have now lifted them off and started wearing, uh, clothing, uh, with a name, say, I am part of the Tea Party. Don’t you be fooled. 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.”
