Disgraced Texas Rep. Accuses Obama Of Sparking War 'Worse Than WWII'
August 5, 2015

Former U.S. Representative Steve Stockman, famous for saying stupid things, couldn't resist saying a stupid thing in the same week of President Obama's clear, cogent speech outlining the case for diplomacy over war with Iran.

Stockman did not directly address the Iran deal, choosing instead to focus on ISIS/ISIL and the battle with them, while failing to admit that extremists in the region are a direct result of the U.S. invasion of Iraq.

Earlier this week, former Texas Republican Rep. Steve Stockman returned to End Times preacher Rick Wiles’ “Trunews” radio program, where he alleged that the U.S. is faking the military campaign against the so-called Islamic State and is instead instigating a conflict bigger than World War II.

After Stockman insisted that the Obama administration is “not bombing” ISIS, Wiles claimed that in fact “Obama created ISIS.” Wiles then charged that Obama is a Sunni Muslim, to which Stockman responded that “even the Sunnis hate him” and “most of them believe that Obama did create ISIS.”

“He’s created a war, a potential war, for the next president,” Stockman said, insisting that Obama is “pretty crazy” and may start “a war bigger than the Germans did” in World War II.

The guy calling our President "pretty crazy" is projecting.

There was that time he accused the President of using Ebola to take over the government, the time he waxed eloquent about "liberal tears being the best gun lubricant", his comparison of migrant children to the U.S. army invasion of France, his zeal to arrest Lois Lerner (video below), and his campaign to give away a Bushmaster AR-15 rifle just after the Sandy Hook massacre.

And that's before we get to his ethics and money problems.

He and Rick Wiles deserve each other. As Juanita Jean says, he's just insane.
