  • Attempt to make it illegal to "vilify ‘a non-White person or group’"

    Rep. Shelia Jackson Lee (D-TX), notorious for, while a member of the House Science Committee, while on a trip to the Mars Pathfinder operations center in California, asked if the Pathfinder had succeeded in taking a picture of the flag planted on Mars by Neil Armstrong in 1969, has introduced a bill in Congress that basically would make it a crime for a white person to criticize a person of color.

    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.”

    The bill would grant the department authority to “prosecute” persons engaged in such actions, with “records of white supremacy inspired hate crimes” maintained and annual reports provided.

    In response, Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) accused Democrats of “making a mockery of the First Amendment.”

    “In case you weren’t aware of what the Democrats were prioritizing in the 118th Congress, just take a look,” she wrote. “When they’re not bankrupting our country, they’re busy making a mockery of the First Amendment.”

    “Who wants to tell her about the First Amendment?” asked conservative attorney Harmeet Dhillon.

    “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.

    “Sheila Jackson Lee should be introduced to the Bill of Rights. Particularly the first amendment pertaining to free speech,” another wrote.

    “This is a disturbing, yet not surprising, piece of #AntiWhite legislation,” yet another user wrote.

    Previously, Jackson Lee has argued that institutional and systemic racism “taints and spoils” the way America treats minorities, adding that there are “aspects of America’s laws, America’s structure as relates to the black community in particular and other communities that is racist.”

    The very fact that she can make Lauren Boebert look like the voice of Reason ought to tell you all you need to about SJL.

      She's also the one who complained about the house rules against wearing hats on the floor was "racist."

      Her proposed laws is unconstitutional in so many ways.

      1. Criminalized speech.
      2. Not content neutral
      3. unequal atment under the law.

          IOW, she's trying to protect herself and Hank Johnson. She should change the legislation to "criticizing stupid people."

            This is so over-the-top ridiculous that I'm waiting to hear this is a hoax or a gross misrepresentation. But then again, this is SJL we're talking about.

              The most frightening thing about stupid politicians is that the people who vote for them are even stupider.

                    Well, those laws are obviously racist so they can safely be ignored by anyone who isn't a white supremacist.
