Texas State Senator Goes Godwin at Inauguration

Chuck Perry won a special election for a state senate seat in Texas and was sworn in to that office this week. He then gave an appalling speech comparing reproductive rights and gay rights to the slaughter of Jews in Nazi concentration camps.

After placing his hand on the Bible and taking the oath of office, state Sen. Charles Perry compared what he called the “spiritual battle” brewing across the nation to the Holocaust.

God has a place in the government, Perry explained in his inaugural speech as he vividly recalled a recent trip to a former concentration camp in Berlin.

“There were 10,000 people that were paraded into a medical office under the guise of a physical. As they stood with their back against the wall, they were executed with a bullet through the throat. Before they left, 10,000 people met their fate that way,” Perry said.

“Is it not the same than when our government continues to perpetuate laws that lead citizens away from God? The only difference is that the fraud of the Germans was more immediate and whereas the fraud of today’s government will not be exposed until the final days and will have eternal-lasting effects.”

Really? You think that’s the only difference? Then you’re a moron. Which means you should fit right in at the Texas state capitol.

"You're right: I wasn't very tactful or understanding in my response."

    God has a place in the government…

    Weird. I don’t even remember Him being on the ballot. Must not’ve been in my riding.

    So if I understand this guy correctly, the best thing he can do as a State official for all of those citizens that the corrupt United States is leading to eternal damnation is to kill every one of them that he can.

    God has a place in the government,

    Or, as it was phrased in the original German, “Gott Mitt Uns.”

    A Japanese Imperial commander said he’d awakened a “sleeping giant” after the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, according to Perry. Today, the new state senator wonders where that giant is.

    “Has the giant died?” Perry asked after being sworn in. “Where is that giant of a nation that was founded on the eternal and never-changing values of a loving God and the desire to share that? I don’t recognize it on so many levels today.”

    Never changing? You mean God is mad at us for ending slavery?

    And WTF does the war in the Pacific have to do with this? You want the government to bomb abortion clinics and gay people? Opps, better not give him any ideas.

    Leaving you behind in the dustbin of history as the giant struggles to get into the 21st century.

    Worst part is that the Pantex nuclear assembly plant is in or near his district. Some of the people who build and maintain our nuclear weapons voted for this guy.

    Neither the linked story nor anything I could find answers a crucial question: is Chuck Perry related to Rick?

    If Christians really hated what the Germans did during WWII and the decade prior, then they’d* stop celebrating a god who they believe plans to do infinitely worse than what Germany ever did.
