Rep. Louie Gohmert Still Yammering About Christian Countries Or Whatever

News

Good morning, godless heathens who are destroying America with your godless heathenism! Whatcha doin'? Destroying America with your godless heathenism? Yeah, we thought so. And Texas Rep. Louis Gohmert, perpetual contender for Wonkette’s coveted Legislative Shitmuffin of the Year Award, would sure like you to stop doing that. Gohmert is one of the mostest greatest deep thinking deep thinkers of our time, who is A Expert on all matters of importance in this day and age, includingcaribou sexytime, how the damned poors get fat on crab legs with their food stamps, and why, just hypothetically speaking, Congress should maybe impeach President Obama if he ever lets Republicans force him to default on America's debt.


So how is Gohmert trying to help us save us from ourselves and the total destruction of these United States? Supporting increasing the minimum wage? Encouraging the uninsured to enroll in Obamacare? Free abortion on demand? Hahaha, don't be RIDICULOSE. Gohmert's save America plan today is so much simpler than all that commie nonsense.

Although he also declared that Christianity is the most persecuted religion in the world, as an aside he argued that only nations that turned away from the Judeo-Christian god have ceased to exist.

"No country has ever fallen while it was truly honoring the god of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob," Gohmert said.

"So if you were completely areligious, completely atheistic, but you wanted to have a free country, and you wanted to have it safe and protected, then it would sound like -- from historical purposes -- that it might be a good thing to encourage those who believe in God to keep doing so," Gohmert said. "Because when a nation's leaders honor that God, that nation is protected. It's only when it turns away that it falls."

Well, that makes perfectly good sense, doesn't it? It is HISTORY, people. The only way to have a free and lasting country is to tell that silly First Amendment to go fuck itself and "encourage" people to be all religious-like, but of course only in a Christian way. (Yeah, yeah, we know he said Judeo-Christian -- which, side note, is a bullshit phrase anyway because there is nothing Christian about our Judeo ... but we digress -- because that makes it sound like he is more tolerant-like and loves him the Jooz, but we are not completely Gohmert-level dumb and we can read between those lines and know full well that when the party that whines about the War on Christmas and persecution of Christians talks about religion, they are really only talking about the Jesus kind, but nice try, Gohmert.)

Reading even more between the lines, it sure seems like Gohmert is hint-hinting that maybe our current leader does not honor God? Oh right because he is a Kenyan Marxist Commie Muslim whatever. Maybe we should all send postcards to the White House, begging Obama to "honor that God" so we do not fall. Because damn, we are thiiiiiiiiiis close to the end of America, and we've already been teetering on the brink, what with our sex educating of our children, which has practically turned us into the Soviet Union. (Gohmert spent a summer there, you know, so he is A Expert on that too.)

So please, pretty please, non-believers, understand how history works and start getting your worship on, fer Chrissake. And America.

Yesterday afternoon, 45-year-old Gary Martin of Aurora, Illinois was let go from his job at the Henry Pratt Company, a factory that manufactures water valves. In response, he took out a pistol with a laser scope and began shooting at random. He killed five people and injured six others who were just trying to make it through the day at the water valve factory, and then the police killed him.

His mother said he was "stressed out." He "seemed fine" according to the clerk at the Circle K where he bought his cigars that morning. His neighbor thought he was a nice guy. Some people were surprised, others were not.

This kind of thing used to be shocking, but it's a story we're used to now. It gets repeated at least once a month. It's just what happens now, and we can't do anything about it because we can't do anything about gun control. This is, the Right has decided, just the price we all have to pay so they can stockpile guns for funsies, and take sexy pictures of guns shoved in their pants. This is the blood that waters their special tree of liberty.

It's fucking exhausting. And stupid. We shouldn't have to live this way. No one should have to live this way. But we do. Why? Because some day some yahoos might want to overthrow the government, which is (of course) a completely legal thing to do, and their "right" to do that must be protected. So it's literally just never, ever going to stop.

Gary Martin, like most other mass shooters, also had a history of violence against women. In 1994, in Mississippi, he was convicted for stabbing one. He should not have been able to get a gun after that. I would like to know how and why he was able to get that pistol with the laser scope that he killed five people with yesterday afternoon. Maybe someone gave it to him. Maybe he bought it somehow. Maybe someone forgot to do a background check. Maybe he bought it from someone who didn't have to do a background check.

I am so goddamned tired of writing this article. I am out of things to say.
