NEW YORK – Illinois Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky (D-09) appeared Sunday with Rev. Al Sharpton on MSNBC to demonize pro-lifers, Republicans and Second Amendment supporters, and congratulate the "Black Lives Matter" movement.
The House member, who represents Chicago northside up into the suburbs, said, “You know, they want to define terrorism right now, frankly, Reverend Al, as Muslims, and I’m not even talking about people who associate themselves necessarily with extremist organizations. And I want to tell you, I have a lot of people who believe in Islam in my district. They are scared. People are afraid to send their children to school. They’re afraid to cover themselves, and are being attacked right now. It’s really frightening for law-abiding american Muslims in this country.”
Schakowsky went on to say, “You know, words matter, so when you have people who want to be president of the United States saying they want to have all Muslims register in the United States, when people who talk about Planned Parenthood and clinics and talk about baby body parts and then the killer repeated those words, echoed those words, when he shot the people at the clinic, words really matter, and right now those words are terrorizing Americans.”
Not voicing concern for the questions of legality of selling baby body parts, or the violence exposed with the "manufactured video tapes" has caused an increase in harassment and is nothing but a "witch hunt," Schakowsky said.
She then went on to say that the "Black Lives Matter" movement is drawing attention to the problems within police departments nationwide. She didn't mention specifically her opinion of "Black Lives Matter's" oft-used protest chant, "Pigs in a blanket, fry 'em like bacon," or "What do we want? Dead cops. When do we want them? Now."
