Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) reminds us that it is not our business to concern ourselves with those whoÂ hurt the “religious feelings” of Muslims, but to uphold our citizens rights to freedom of speech.
The Klintoons: ‘Islam is a great religion’
Huma Abedin’s ‘Svengali-like powers over her lesbian girlfriend at work:
Shrillary despicable as always:
Clinton added that the video is “disgusting and reprehensible”–– wanna bet that she never saw it?
- Obama calls Morsi, says that he, too, “rejects efforts to denigrate Islam”
- White House spokesman endorses “efforts” to ensure that “all faiths” are “respected”: “This work takes on added urgency given the truly abhorrent video that has offended so many people”
- Guardian calls for free speech restrictions in wake of jihad murder of U.S. ambassador
Rep. Louie Gohmert Â took a shot at President Obama’s foreign policy in an impassioned speech on the House floor Wednesday, slamming the administration’s response to theÂ killings of four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, by radical Islamists during an attack on the U.S. embassy in Libya.
“It does not help when an administration in response to American attacks on American Soil and American individuals, the administration ends up asking Americans to give up their First Amendment rights for which our service members are fighting,” Gohmert said. “It doesn’t help when a general asks an American to give up your First Amendment rights rather than proclaiming, ‘We’re the United States military, you have attacked our country, you have attacked our brothers and sisters, and you will pay for that.’”—Â Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas)
After paying tribute to Stevens, Gohmert
seemingly lectured the current administration on its duty to protect the United States from all enemies, foreign and domestic.
But what kind of asshole would bend over that far?
It’s come to this. Even the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff thinks that it if Muslims respond to something with murderous violence, it is up to the non-Muslims to change the way they behave so as to accommodate them. And so eleven years after 9/11, terrorism well and truly won: now if any group wants anything, they know that all they have to do in order to get it is rampage and riot and kill.
Yep, none less than General Martin Dempsey, the same jackass who doesn’t want ‘to be complicit’ if Israel defends itself against an enemy that wants to annihilate every last Jew on the planet.
And that very same lobotomised grinch Dempsey went out on a limb for the Muslim Brotherhood and called Â pastor Terry Jones of Koran-burning fameÂ to submit voluntarily to Sharia restrictions on the freedom of speech regarding Islam: Â “Top U.S. military officer calls pastor over film,”Â Reuters, September 12
But that’s not how the federal government responded to the crisis, he explained. After a group of radical Islamists tore apart an American flag at a U.S. consulate in Cairo, the embassyÂ released a statementÂ apologizing for people in America that may have hurt the “religious feelings” of Muslims. To be fair, the White House later released a statement distancing itself from the apology.
“It’s OK to burn a Bible, that’s OK,” Gohmert said, mocking the current administration. “OK to burn a flag, OK, that’s all right,” he continued. “But just, you know, for heaven‘s sake don’t say anything that might offend someone of the Islamic religion.”
Gohmert said he doesn’t encourage anyone to offend Muslims but added that “we should defend ourselves against radical Islamists that want to annihilate this country and destroy our way of life.” President Obama has failed thus far to address the threat of radical Islam, according to Gohmert.
While several U.S. officials and various news reports initially insisted the attacks on the embassy in Libya were because of an anti-Muslim YouTube clip, Gohmert suggested the attack was coordinated and planned to occur on Sept. 11, using the video as a cover to carry out the assault. To back up his claim, he cited a Fox News report. The U.S. government is now investigating whether the attack was indeed planned in advance, according toÂ The New York Times.
The Texas congressman also criticized President Obama forÂ declining an invitationÂ from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to meet when he is in the United States. He suggested Obama squeeze him into his schedule when he’s not playing golf or holding fundraisers.
“We see people in the Middle East begin to have dreams of new Ottoman Empire where everyone will be subjected to some of what we‘ve seen happen in those countries where we helped bring about an Arab Spring that’s turned into a Winter nightmare,” he said. “This is not a time to play petty personal games, to snub leaders of friends, of allies, even when you disagree with them for heaven’s sake.”
He went on: “Take a little time from a fundraiser, take a little time that you don’t go to the golf course and meet with the leader of a country that sees hatred for its people, anti-semitism, the racism, the bigotry growing around the world, who is scared for its own existence, who can‘t be sure that we’re going to be there with them because of the actions of this administration.”
“I mean, it is an inconvenient thing to have to be president when you really are best at running for office,” he said.
