Sometimes it’s hard to tell whether Rep. Louis Gohmert is crazy and delusional or just incredibly dishonest. Ultimately, it doesn’t much matter. But wait until you see his latest baffling pronouncement, that we need to build a border fence because Muslim terrorists are being taught to act Hispanic:
The Tea Party favorite said he feared people entering the country illegally or posing as undocumented Hispanic immigrants could carry out “copycat things.” “We know Al Qaeda has camps on the Mexican border,” he said. “We have people that are trained to act Hispanic when they are radical Islamists.”
Evidence? Who needs evidence? This act has been working since the 1950s, when the Birchers were claiming that China was massing troops on the Mexican border to invade the United States. And then there’s this:
Gohmert criticized the bipartisan immigration bill unveiled by the Gang of 8 this week, arguing that it would give immigrants “a bit of amnesty.” “You have to understand that we want America to continue to be a haven for people that want to live free,” he added. “When you have the greatest liberties, you will draw people that want to destroy you.”
Uh, yeah. We want to be a haven for people who want to be free, so we have to keep people out of that haven. Makes as much sense as that idiotic “they want to destroy us for our freedom” bullshit at the end. You know what we really seem to be a haven for? Dumbfucks like Gohmert.
