Gohmert: Obama is Bringing Down Judgment on America

Rep. Louis Gohmert, who might well be the dumbest man ever elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, says that we have elected leaders — he means President Obama, of course — that are going to bring down the wrath of God on the United States.

Gohmert then went on to warn that God will punish America for “turning its back on Christians and Jews around the world.”

“I am very afraid since I know,” he said, “that the judgements of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. It doesn’t matter how many people in America are faithful followers, we have put into place leaders who may bring down judgment on the United States if we don’t start helping the good guys.”

How ridiculous and frightening is it that the most powerful country in the world has people in positions of power that think we should make public policy on the basis of their bizarre beliefs in an interpretation of a holy book? No wonder so much of the world rolls their eyes at us.

    God’s gonna kill everyone again? And again, and again, and again? How many times can god kill everyone?

    So, to get this straight…

    Alex Jones: “Liberals are going to kill everybody! They are vicious monsters that only want our destruction!”

    Louis Gohmert: “God is going to kill everybody! He is just and good but must bring us our destruction for our actions!”

    Who, in these guys’ minds, isn’t trying to genocide the human race?

    Cthulhu, xianity is stupid. Or at least the fundie perversion.

    1. God loves the USA and has made us Exceptional*, whatever that means. We are his special snowflakes, the New Jews of the New Covenant in the New Israel**.

    2. So he is going to kill us all or at least make us suffer greatly.

    3. Which means, Gohmert’s sockpuppet god kills what he loves!!!

    At least they are consistent. Their god is a monster.

    * Exceptional??? We do have the world’s largest and weirdest lunatic fringes. Gohmert is one. “Whom the god loves best, he makes dumb.”

    ** None of this is in the bible of course, the USA being unknown at the time. OTOH, it does come from the same source. People just make it all up.

    In listening to the call, it starts off with “it was reported from Nigeria that…”, because things reported by unnamed persons from Nigeria are always completely true…

    I bet he’s also going to get a share of $17,000,000 once he helps out with an initial payment of $5,000…

    Even the “faithful” know how bad their god’s aim is.

    I am very afraid since I know,” he said, “that the judgements of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.

    Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad.

    I now have Spike Jones’ version of You Always Hurt the One You Love stuck in my head.

    Just look at all the other non-christian countries god has destroyed – like um…..well I’m sure there is one…Norway. yeah Norway it’s a no-go-zone and everyone in Gohmer’s district knows it.

  • dingojack

    Chris J (#2) – well clearly god is a liberal. It also accounts for the bias in reality…

    Kantalope (#7) – what did an unnamed Nigerian source tell them so? Or was it unnamed liberals? @@

    ISIS is on a murder rampage in Iraq, so does God destroy ISIS? Nope. God kills Aunt Ethel in New Jersey. Makes sense.

    Louis Gohmert: “God is going to kill everybody! He is just and good but must bring us our destruction for our actions!””

    so this means, liberals are gods!!

    “since I know,” he said,

    Citation fucking needed

    “that the judgements of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.”

    Hooray for mass indiscriminate murder!
