Is it tiny Muslimses?
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX)—who has spent the weeks following the bombing arguing that Obama’s “political correctness” prevented the FBI from stopping the attacks—appeared on the Glenn Beck radio show to argue that Holder’s history of defending terrorists allowed the judge to Mirandize Tsarnaev:No, I mean it. Is there a number we should be calling? Can someone check for a medical alert bracelet? Because this poor man is seeing invisible Muslims everywhere, and in every federal department:
GOHMERT: Think about it, when your attorney general spent more of his legal career helping terrorists than defending the country, then you know we all have certain biases and lean certain ways.Gohmert then went on to reiterate his belief that the Obama administration is guided by the Muslim Brotherhood. “[The administration] know who’s in there advising them,” Gohmert said, “either they lie under oath or they do know the extent of Muslim Brotherhood infiltration into our government.”
While addressing the FBI’s work in Boston, Gohmert said that it was “amazing” that the FBI was able to do any investigative work at all because, according to Gohmert, they are being advised by “Muslim Brotherhood members.”He's gone past the conspiracy tubthumping of Bachmann and King—he may have even lapped a few Alex Jones theories at this point. According to him, the entire government is just riddled with secret invisible Muslims. They're everywhere. They're hiding under his office chair, they're in his cereal, they're out in the parking lot right now, letting just a tiny bit of air out of his tires each day—oh, it's hard to notice at first, but you can tell. You can tell.
He said that the Obama administration is promoting “radical Islam” and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and in the US, maintaining that “Muslim Brotherhood advisers” have made it “virtually impossible to properly and adequately investigate and defend this country.”
I realize America doesn't have high standards for electing congresspeople. Or, for that manner, any standards at all. I realize many voters in certain southern states have, in fact, a longstanding tradition of seeing just how dumb a man they might be able to elect to office, just to see what would happen. And I realize that the Republican Party has relied on the dangers posed by purely imaginary people of all colors and persuasions for nearly all of their major policy decisions, these last two decades. But this? This is a man past his breaking point. This is a man who's about three weeks from ripping out his own fillings, claiming invisible Muslims lived inside them and were reciting the collected works of Walt Whitman every night while he was trying to sleep. Help him.
