Sheila Jackson Lee: Newt Gingrich Using Racist ‘Code Words’

Sheila Jackson Lee is right on time with her weekly “_____ is racist” accusation.

Newt Gingrich is using secret racist encryption and Jackson Lee — dumbest member of Congress 17 years running — has cracked the code:

Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee on Friday accused Newt Gingrich of using racial “code words” in calling President Barack Obama the “food stamp president” and saying schools ought to hire children to do janitorial work.

The Texas congresswoman’s comments came in response to a question about remarks she made on the House floor Wednesday, when she said there are “candidates like Newt Gingrich who want to throw fuel and matches and fire to develop sort of an explosiveness in this country” and there are “underlying suggestions” to calling Obama the “food stamp president.”

“These are code words. It’s inappropriate,” Jackson Lee told MSNBC’s Martin Bashir Friday. “Let me say that the code words, as far as I’m concerned words that generate and signify race.”

And “Sheila Jackson Lee” is poorly disguised code for “pathetic race baiter.”

I’m not sure why people like Sheila Jackson Lee assume that calling Obama the “food stamp president” is racist considering that half of all people on food stamps are white.

For her skill at decrypting enemy code, I was going to refer to Jackson Lee as a “human enigma machine” but she’d probably think that was a racial slur, so I won’t:

There is one issue on which Sheila Jackson Lee and I agree completely: Her constituents are idiots. For evidence we need look no further than the fact that they keep re-electing Sheila Jackson Lee.
