    More proof that certain Tea Party Congressmen have lost their minds.

    http://www.opposingviews.com/i/religion/islam/radical-islamists-learn-spanish-pretend-be-hispanic-claims-rep-louie-gohmert-video (follow link for video if you want to bother watching)

    "Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, believes he has figured out a terrorist tactic.

    ... radical Islamists that change their names to Hispanic-sounding last names, they come to Mexico and get and ID, and some of them even learn a little bit of Spanish so that they can try to act as if they’re Hispanic,” Gohmert said (video below). “Why? Because we don’t have any fear of Hispanics coming into the country, but we’ve got concerns about radical Islamists.”

    Why is that such a stretch? I wouldn't be surprised in the least. Evil exists and persists, my friend.

    It's prudent. This is why the subject of border security is so important, among other reasons.

    failscarf saidSo basically Arabs look Hispanic. And all Arabs are basically muslims.
    They can't go one day without being racists.
    I can only imagine what they think of blacks.


    I think radical islamists have given enough notice that they will do whatever it takes to KILL Americans. Those responsible for our security had better be on their toes....

    on their toes = off their rockers

    Another attempt by a screwball racist Teabagger to demonize all Hispanics and minorities, and to sink immigration reform. But yes, let's shut down the borders to keep out faux Hispanics who can barely speak bad Spanish with an Arabic accent.

    Somehow I think our customs people would already be suspicious of such individuals. Or if not, then would we have any security against businessmen, students & tourists who come here from Middle Eastern countries everyday? And from countries with known Islamic terrorist movements?

    Just another racist red herring from the wacko Right. icon_razz.gif

    If it comes out of Louie Gohmert's mouth, it's probably not true and this is definitely not true. These racists are so determined to stick it to "those Mexicans" that they will make up anything. Gohmert hails from East Texas, which speaks volumes about what sort of views he holds.

    Your typical ad hominem attack on anyone who posts something you oppose, sadly thinking it proves your point. But right in keeping with the dysfunctional logic of the Teabaggers you champion here.

    But that's OK. It makes you the easiest Right Winger to refute here, since your political arguments are empty and personal.

    Very true. I spent a lot of time in East Texas, living mostly in San Augustine, within Gohmert's Congressional District (not to be confused with St. Augustine, FL). A more racist part of Texas you would be hard-pressed to find.

    Even the gay friend I stayed with, a retired Democratic senior government official with very prominent Washington & Texas connections, would blurt out the most revolting racist slurs in my presence. (And of course he insisted I remain strictly closeted there, as he was, to avoid getting us lynched - no joking)

    Older than me by 12 years, he reflected more of the old Southern Democratic Party, the "Dixiecrats", many of whom have morphed into equally racist Republicans. But whatever the veneer of changing party affiliation, underneath runs a very long tradition of hatred for non-White minorities in East Texas. I saw it for myself there, and Gohmert fits the mold perfectly.

    Yep, a lot of Dixiecrats switched parties, which is why East Texas went from solidly Democratic to solidly Republican. It's still common knowledge that anyone who is non-white better be out of certain areas before sundown or there is no telling what might happen to them.

    We should be a hell of a lot more concerned with ALL borders. Even senior liberal Senator Charles Schumer of NY has brought up the subject of cargo ships and security, and rightly so. And to be consistent, I was against allowing Mexican trucks into the US, a plan implemented during the Bush years.

    "Just another racist red herring from the wacko Right"

    A red herring is a figurative expression referring to a logical fallacy in which a clue or piece of information is or is intended to be misleading, or distracting from the actual question.

    Therefore, pointing out the use of a red herring argument by Congressman Ohmert is not an ad hominem attack.

    One of Gohmert's greatest hits, just to demonstrate how dumb he really is

    The U.S. should be far more concerned with cyber security. The next World War™ won't be in battle fields

    But "wacko Right" is a correct description of the US Right Wing today. Everyone agrees with that, except, of course, the wacko Right themselves. Even the world press mocks the idiocy of the US Right. I do hope you tune into something other than Fox News, and listen to someone other than Limbaugh, Beck, Hannity and similar.

    You yourself use the term "libtards". Don't you find it a bit of a double standard for you to be criticizing those of us who call the Radical Right to account?

    "You yourself use the term "libtards"

    Search the forum, which still takes you back to the very beginning and show me where I ever used that term (other than quoting someone else who used it).

    "wacko Right"

    Ad hominem attack. Don't like it then don't do it (and yes, I've said that a few thousand times) And correct according to whom?

    Takes only seconds to run the search. Since all of these pages are indexed into Google, search (realjock, libtards, freedomisntfree. See how easy that was? And the results were?
