Opinion: How-can-dumb-get-any-dumber?-when-it’s Texas-Rep.-Louie-Gohmert headline and story of the day

“GOP congressman: Capitol riot defendants are being treated worse than ‘blood thirsty murderers’ at Guantanamo”
Speaking on the House floor this Friday, Texas GOP Rep. Louie Gohmert went to bat for defendants arrested and charged for participating in the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, saying that authorities are treating them worse than prisoners in the Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp in Cuba.
“The reports we’ve been getting indicate that the folks here that are being held in pre-trial confinement and are being punished, although that’s unconstitutional to punish somebody while they are waiting trial and have not been convicted, that they’re not treated nearly as well as bloodthirsty murderers that are being held in Guantanamo,” Gohmert said.
Gohmert went on to say that he’s visited Capitol riot defendants and that it’s “tragic that American citizens are being treated so much worse than individuals who want to destroy America.”
“Dumb” does not do justice to describing the act of mere “thinking” that describes this man’s lack f of moral perspective and mental acuity.
He is so dumb that Baylor should rescind his law degree. He is so dumb that anyone who voted for him or will vote for him should not be allow to…fill in blank here.
His imbecilic remarks and actions — from “anchor babies” to being promoted to “general” of “Trump’s Troops” to excusing the Jan. 6 insurrection, deaths of five people and his excusing actions of his supporters trying to bring down a mainstay of democracu as outlined in the Constitution — woukd be laughable if he were not an elected official.
His First District supporters cannot continue to believe this man is a patriot and expresses the views of East Texas. East Texans, by and large, are hard working, Bible believers who know God in his wisdom and Jesus in his teachings would cast the likes of Louie the Lip into the fiery depths of hell rather than listen to the insane drivel flowing from his lie-laced tongue.
There is no love in Louie, no empathy (except for the lies necessary to hold onto power), no help for the poor and oppressed, you know … Jesus stuff!
Bottomline line: Louie and his supporters are on the wrong side of common sense and decency, and the wrong side of history.
Next year, get out and vote and make this laughable buffoon of an elected official an “ejected” official.
Send Louie home. He’s representing the underbelly of an autocratic movement that is anti-American, and anti-democracy.
