Louie, Louie, Louie Gohmert: A Big Lie on Palestine and Raging Homosexual Hormones?

rep_gohmert.jpgRep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) needs to read up on some things -- like learn some facts and stuff ... and use those facts to stop illegals from taking land that is not theirs. You know those Israelis are taking land that is not theirs from Palestinians who are stealing land too, just like those nasty Mexican drug thugsters. And we need the entire country to intervene, like the Chilean government did with those miners, because a Mexican drug investigator was killed at Falcon Lake and beheaded and Fox News totally agrees with me, but I say we should cheer on those people stopping Palestinian land grabbers ... and by the way, those gay soldiers just can't stop their raging homosexual hormones. I know it. They can't. Done deal.

For more absurdity from Congressman Gohmert, here is the Fox News clip connecting Chile's miner rescue to law and order problems in his district (from Gohmert's own home page) -- and here is the most absurd statement on Palestinian-Israeli territory disputes ever uttered on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives:

GOHMERT: The only good news I see out of that is that for so long, I've been greatly concerned with the hypocrisy of this administration telling Israel, "Just let Palestinians build illegal settlements and take over areas that are not theirs. Just let 'em take over." And I thought, "How hypocritical for our U.S. administration to tell Israel, 'just let people take over areas of your country they're not authorized to takeover,' cause we would never allow that here in the U.S." Which brings me to the only good thing about violent illegal alien drug smugglers taking over American soil: At least we're not hypocritical anymore when we tell Israel just to let people take over land that's not theirs. Because now this administration can say, "Look, Israel, we're doing it here. We're letting people take over American soil that they shouldn't. So you can do it, too."

And on those raging uncontrollable homosexual hormones that we can't let on the battlefield, have some fun.

It would be lovely to hear Fox News chat with Representative Gohmert in a serious way about any technical issue within his portfolio as a Member of the House Judiciary Committee.

From Gohmert's website, the role and function of this committee is defined well:

The Committee on the Judiciary has been called the lawyer for the House of Representatives because of its jurisdiction over matters relating to the administration of justice in Federal courts, administrative bodies, and law enforcement agencies. The Committee has oversight responsibility for the Department of Justice and Homeland Security, civil and criminal judicial proceedings and Federal courts and judges, issues relating to bankruptcy, espionage, terrorism, the protection of civil liberties, constitutional amendments, immigration and naturalization, interstate compacts, claims against the United States, national penitentiaries, Presidential succession, antitrust law, revision and codification of the statutes of the United States, state and territorial boundary lines and patents, copyrights and trademarks.

Given his backwards statements on Palestinian land issues and gays in the military, one wonders how much of the above he may get backwards as well.
