RUSH: Do you know there is a freed slave serving in Congress? Grab audio sound bite number seven. Yep. There is a freed slave serving in the US House right now. A freed, f-r-e-e-d, slave is serving right now in the House of Representatives. Just to show you that slavery is still alive and kicking, we have a freed slave. (interruption)
Well, you say it’s impossible? Listen.
Here is a portion of remarks made by the freed slave currently serving in the House of Representatives — it happened yesterday — on the House floor.
LEE: We are at the bone almost. And sequester that is across-the-board cuts will literally destroy us and put us in a recession. I don’t want to hear the fact that the president is divisive. The President is leading and he has led well. The American people are listening. When are our friends on the other side of the aisle going to listen? I want to challenge this body to be the kind of “Lincolness attitude.” As yesterday was the official birthday of President Lincoln, February 12, and although it was a tragic time in our history, I can assure you that it shows the greatest promise of America when people could come together and do something great. I stand here as a freed slave because this Congress came together.
RUSH: And the words there are Sheila Jackson Lee from Houston who stood there as a freed slave because this Congress came together. And if we could free Sheila Jackson Lee from slavery, then why can’t we free every African-American? Why can’t we let Chris Dorner go? Why did we have to keep him a slave in the LAPD? We’ve made this guy into what he turned out to be. We forced him to do this. And now he has shined the light of truth on the fact that this ongoing sin, this original sin, continues, unabated every day. Sheila Jackson Lee has been freed. Isn’t it time to free the rest?
RUSH: We’re not having much luck here, folks. We’ve been doing exhaustive research in the last four minutes. We’re trying to find out who owned and who sold Sheila Jackson Lee and what they got for her. She said on the floor of the House of Representatives … she was standing there as a freed slave because this Congress came together. I didn’t think they were coming together at all. She talked about the Congress during Lincoln, but anyway, she’s a freed slave. Somebody had to own her, and we don’t know who.
Obviously, you know, with the makeup of culture today, didn’t have to be Houston, owner did not have to be where she lived. Could be owned by anybody. What if a drug company owned her? You know, what if Big Oil owned her and she didn’t know about it. Somebody freed her, though. We will keep looking to try to find out who owned her, who sold her, and what they got. I have to tell you, though, in all candor, I think she looks pretty good for her age. She’s gotta be over 110. You’d never know it.
