Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) took to the floor of the House and presented HR61, a bill that would make it illegal to criticize non-white people and would criminalize “conspiracy to commit white supremacy” in a move that is not only blatantly racist but would violate the First Amendment.

“Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee has introduced a House Bill to criminalize “conspiracy to commit white supremacy,” which includes any criticism of non-white people that influences (such as something published or said online) someone who commits a hate crime,” conservative pundit Ian Miles Cheong tweeted.
“What we are speaking about is of course the words ‘white nationalism’ and ‘white supremacy.’ For it is clear the FBI makes a direct point between dehumanizing and derogatory comments which come from white nationalists and white supremacists to the idea that it generates, as you have heard here on the floor of the House. It generates the death of Dr. Martin Luther King. It generates Charlottesville. It generates Charleston, SC. It generates hateful acts that result in death,” she charged.
“This is the kind of intolerance or the tolerating of this that we cannot suffer and the intolerance that we cannot suffer because the idea of white nationalism as superior to others and white supremacy indicate that somebody else might die,” the congresswoman incited, invoking a word salad worthy of Vice President Kamala Harris.
Who wants to tell her about the First Amendment? https://t.co/FF0QUQsBg6

“This resolution is an important resolution to affirm this Congress and this nation that we believe we are all created equal and as Dr. King said that ‘We shall overcome.’ And someday we shall overcome,” Lee wackily concluded.
The summary of the bill reads, “To prevent and prosecute white supremacy inspired hate crime and conspiracy to commit white supremacy inspired hate crime and to amend title 18, United States Code, to expand the scope of hate crimes.”
The Texas Democrat was ripped on Twitter for her fringe suggestion:
She is literally a Communist totalitarian. #Orwellian
