Excitable Sheila Jackson Lee Introduces Bill Making Criticizing People Of Color Illegal

Even with all the extreme wackos in the Democratic Party, this isn’t going anywhere. It wouldn’t go anywhere if Democrats still were in charge of the House, but, it does show that these extreme race baiters are not looking for racial healing, but, racial strife

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee Introduces Bill Criminalizing ‘Conspiracy to Commit White Supremacy,’ Criticism of Non-White People

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) introduced a House Bill criminalizing “conspiracy to commit white supremacy,” which includes criticism of non-white people which influences an individual to commit a hate crime.

The legislation, H.R.61 “Leading Against White Supremacy Act of 2023,” introduced last Monday by Democratic congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas, seeks to “prevent and prosecute white supremacy inspired hate crime and conspiracy to commit white supremacy inspired hate crime.”

The congressional bill, which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary, states that someone engages in a white supremacy inspired hate crime “when white supremacy ideology has motivated the planning, development, preparation, or perpetration of actions that constituted a crime or were undertaken in furtherance of activity that, if effectuated, would have constituted a crime.”

Accordingly, “conspiracy” to engage in white supremacy inspired hate crime entails the publishing of material “advancing white supremacy, white supremacist ideology, antagonism based on ‘replacement theory’, or hate speech that vilifies or is otherwise directed against any non-White person or group.”

It also calls for the Department of Justice (DOJ) to gain “authority to conduct operations and activities pursuant” to what it deems “necessary and appropriate to interdict, mitigate, or prevent such action from culminating in violent activity.”

Has she heard of the 1st Amendment? Does she care about it?

“Congressman Sheila Jackson Lee just introduced a bill that would make it a federal crime for White people, and White people only, to criticize mass immigration or to say anything that she claims would vilify ‘a non-White person or group,’” wrote one Twitter user.

Democrats are nuts.

    First Amendment? We are way past the first amendment. That died when hate crimes legislation became normal.

  2. I have no doubt that the Distinguished Gentlelady from Texas truly does believe that any criticism of black people is indeed raaaaacist, and therefore a hate crime, for which they should be punished. Nor do I have any doubt that there’s a fairly sizable minority of Americans, black and white alike, who would agree with her.

    Representative Lee seems to be unaware that white supremacists and white nationalists also have the same Constitutional rights as normal Americans!

    Her bill presumes to determine what a terrorist is thinking before attacking minority members. Worse she wants to make it a crime for two or more white supremacists or white nationalists to even talk about attacking minorities!!

    The existing laws making assault and murder serious crimes against anyone, including minorities, independent of motive are good enough. This bill is intended to drive white supremacists and white nationalists and their philosophies deeper underground which is, of course, unConstitutional. It would be like enshrining discrimination in law, like limiting the rights of blacks, Muslims, LGBTQs, immigrants etc.

    Amendment 1
    Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech…

    That’s pretty clear. Although white supremacists and white nationalists hate America, they still have the same rights as normals. The Constitution does not permit government(s) abridging the freedom of speech of raaaacists.

    In practical terms, how does the government even determine if someone is a white supremacist?

    Fortunately, the bill will go nowhere.

    Perhaps the Distinguished Lady should re-read her Oath of Office

    I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

    If she cannot abide by her
    oath, she must resign!
