Democratic Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee messed with the wrong mom during a Tuesday hearing on discrimination and Critical Race Theory.
Witness Asra Normani was recording Lee during the hearing when Lee demanded Normani cease filming.
“We are problem solvers. We are grateful that the courts have responded to perceived discrimination but in any event what I would clearly say – you need to put down your camera,” Lee, who is clearly distracted by Normani, said. “Please, you need to put down your camera. You need to put down your camera.”
Normani, who is seen wearing a “I’m a Mom, not a ‘domestic terrorist’” shirt while holding her phone to record Lee, appears to question Lee.
“Why do I have to put down my camera?” Normani asked.
“Because I’m already on video so I don’t need to be on yours.”
“I mean, this is free speech,” Normani said as she continued filming.
Lee is then consulted by an individual before saying she’s “asked respectfully and you choose not to be respectful and so I will allow you to continue on. Thank you so very much.”
Normani later tweeted about the incident, noting she was simply there to testify “on the racism of critical race theory.”
“Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee disparaged us as political. I started filming my evidence, juxtaposed with her denials,” Normani tweeted. ‘You need to put down your camera,’ she said in a subcommittee on the constitution.”
