Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), a member of both the racist Congressional Black Caucus and the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) Caucus expressed solidarity with an extremist cult last year. The delegation Lee welcomed into her office represented an organization founded by the cult’s leader, Yisrayl Hawkins. Lee also offered her support to the group in her role as chairman of the Congressional Childrens Caucus, despite the fact that in 2009, Hawkins was convicted of four counts of forced child labor.
The group known as The Peaceful Solution Character Education Program seeks to construct the third Temple in Jerusalem adjacent to Islam’s third holiest site – the Dome of the Rock – on behalf of Hawkins’ House of Yahweh, as Shoebat.com has revealed.
Lee, who welcomed the group into her office, was presented with an award by House of Yahweh member Chris Hyler, on behalf of “Yisrayl B. Hawkins”. Upon accepting the award, Lee said:
“…you gentlemen have my deepest commitment to this…”
After receiving that award, another member of the cult presented Lee with a “Building moral excellence” manual.
Those who say Lee doesn’t understand what the group is really all about haven’t a leg to stand on. Yisrayl Hawkins has a criminal history and his compound is shrouded in allegations of fraud, abuse, polygamy, and forced child labor. In 2009, Hawkins pleaded no contest to four counts of child labor and had bigamy charges dropped due to statute of limitations issues.
Based on Hawkins’ history with children, Lee’s willingness to partner with his group on behalf of children is almost as stupid as her asking NASA where American astronauts planted the U.S. flag on Mars.
