Republican rodeo clown Rep Louie Gohmert really has tried hard to take the lead from Reps Steve King and Michele Bachmann for saying the most egregious things coming out of the House of Representatives.
Speaking on the House floor yesterday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) charged that the Obama administration had been "complicit in helping people who want to destroy our country" and speculated that a mistake then-Senator Obama made on the campaign trail in 2008 might have been an admission that the president's loyalties are actually with the Organization of the Islamic Conference.
GOHMERT: And I know the President made the mistake one day of saying he had visited all 57 states, and I'm well aware that there are not 57 states in this country, although there are 57 members of OIC, the Islamic states in the world. Perhaps there was some confusion whether he'd been to all 57 Islamic states as opposed to all 50 U.S. states. But nonetheless, we have an obligation to the 50 American states, not the 57 Muslim, Islamic states. Our oath we took is in this body, in this House. And it's to the people of America. And it's not to the Muslim Brotherhood, who may very well take over Egypt and once they do, they are bent upon setting up a caliphate around the world, including the United States. And this administration will been [sic] complicit in helping people who wants [sic] to destroy our country.
As Political Corrrection mentioned, Gohmert even attacked sainted Gen. Petraeus for condemning the insane Florida pastor for holding a Quran burning ceremony because of the hate it would stir up.
The top U.S. commander in Afghanistan said the planned burning of Qurans on Sept. 11 by a small Florida church could put the lives of American troops in danger and damage the war effort.
Gen. David Petraeus said the Taliban would exploit the demonstration for propaganda purposes, drumming up anger toward the U.S. and making it harder for allied troops to carry out their mission of protecting Afghan civilians. "It could endanger troops and it could endanger the overall effort," Gen. Petraeus said in an interview. "It is precisely the kind of action the Taliban uses and could cause significant problems. Not just here, but everywhere in the world we are engaged with the Islamic community."
We gotta be careful not to promote Sharia law, don't you know?
Gohmert even accused Gen. David Petraeus of implicitly endorsing Sharia by speaking out against a planned burning of the Quran by a Florida-based pastor. As Gohmert saw it, Petraeus' warning against the burning was effectively saying that "we need to subvert Americans' First Amendment rights to Sharia."
