Texas First District Rep. Louis Gohmert
By George Smith
Listen up, supporters of Texas First District Rep. Louis Gohmert!
I am not saying this man is stupid. No, not stupid. He is a lawyer, former judge and street-smart enough to convince voters that he has their best interests at heart AND that he is a force to be reckoned with in the unhallowed halls of Congress.
Truth time: He is an ignorant, slobber-
jawed, lie-spouter who is an embarrassment to himself and everybody who votes for him.
But he’s not stupid. What he is is gullible, inane, short-sighted, pointless, insensate, irrelevant, nonsensical, puerile, laughable, naive and obtuse.
And, indiscreet, moronic, trivial, imbecilic, deficient, unthinking, witless, doltish, stolid, mush-headed, dense and dopey.
Oh, but his supporters say, he is in touch with his constituents and looks after their best interests.
To that, I say, set your expectations higher that having a congressional representative that is ridiculed as one of the Capitol’s Top 3 Dumbest Elected Officials.
Voters, it’s not enough for you that your representative is still playing Follow the Leader with Ex-Twice Impeached President Trump, right? Or that he is not interested in supporting a congressional investigation of the Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol?
How ridiculous is Gohmert? Here’s a manly quote from him about the Jan. 6 insurrection attempt:
“The overwhelming number of people caught up in this ‘unprecedented’ investigation … they’re actually nonviolent, peaceful Americans,” Gohmert said. “Their only crime was supporting Donald Trump and concern about the fraud Democrats have been telling us about in elections for many years.”
Or this quote after the Aurora, Colorado mass shooting by James Holmes:
Gohmert wasn’t concerned about, say, mental health issues, or some form of social trigger — but, rather, that he didn’t have the appropriate fear of a vengeful, unforgiving God: “You know what really gets me, as a Christian, is to see the ongoing attacks on Judeo-Christian beliefs, and then some senseless crazy act of terror like this takes place. … We’ve threatened high school graduation participations, if they use God’s name, they’re going to be jailed … I mean that kind of stuff. Where was God? What have we done with God? We don’t want him around. I kind of like his protective hand being present.”
And don’t forget about his unhinged hangup on “anchor babies”.
Gohmert is convinced, all evidence otherwise, that there are terrorist organizations — somewhere, somehow — concocting schemes to send their pregnant Black Widows to our American shores, spawning natural-born terrorists, and then using them and their US Citizenship Cards, decades on, to decimate the land we call home: “[The children] could be raised and coddled as future terrorists [and] twenty, thirty years down the road, they can be sent in to help destroy our way of life.
Gohmert is a fungus that is creating an untenable perception about the voters of Texas First District. A vote for Gohmert is a vote for legalized lunacy.
