In the wake of any tragedy come the gong bangers who try and push through political change based on the feelings that are running high after the tragedy.
Some of it is common sense like “fucking gun control” (because if your people require guns to feel safe then it’s indicative of a society that has broken down or where people are so powerless that EVEN if they had guns it would change nothing) the others less so.
Louie Gohmert said something so stupid that my brain nearly herniated itself as it tried to escape. The laws of physics temporarily suspended themselves. My dog has said smarter things than this and you must understand that if you don’t pay attention to my dog, he will eat another dog’s shit.
On Wednesday this titan tried to lobby people to hop on his square wheeled fear powered bandwagon. By connecting the Boston Marathon Bombing to Immigration by warning that “Radical Islamists were being trained to come in and act like Hispanics” in response to a question on immigration.
And Gohmert had no qualms in dragging Israel into this spiral of stupidity.
“What I first thought after my prayers went for the victims and the families in Boston is, ‘My gosh, we’ve seen this in Israel, And after Israel had to suffer the slings and arrows and the deaths and the maimings… Finally the Israeli people said, ‘You know what? Enough.’ They built, over 70 percent of it is just a fence, and the rest is a wall, prevents snipers from knocking off their kids. And they finally stopped the domestic violence from people that wanted to destroy them.”
You mean the illegal fences that cut through Palestine and where Israeli forces have shot children playing near the fence or farmers trying to farm lands near the fence? Those same fences and “safety corridors” that divide up Palestine from within and from the illegal settlements.
Really? You may as well have said “We had this great plan from 10th Century Europe! What if we built a wall around all the people of a single ethnicity.
By the Power of Greyskull!! You know how profiling is bad enough for Muslims without dragging in an entirely different group of white people into the argument?
“And I’m concerned we need to do that as well,” he insited.
Because he is a bag of dick.
“We know that al Qaeda has camps with the drug cartels on the other side of the Mexican border,” Gohmert agreed. “We know that people are now being trained to come in and act like Hispanics when they’re radical Islamists. We know these things are happening, and it’s just insane to not protect ourselves and make sure that people come in — as most people do, they want the freedoms we have.”
We know you are so full of bullshit that if we buried you in my garden you would come up roses.
