Think Progress/Lee Fang—Led by Rep. Patrick Murphy (D-PA) last night, lawmakers convened for a special session of floor speeches urging a repeal of Don’t Act Don’t Tell. Rather than participate positively in the discussion, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) took to the floor to deliver a hate-filled response. Gohmert fired off a litany of attacks, calling the DADT repeal “perverse…social experimentation” and that soldiers are being “held hostage by a sociological attack.” His rant included a bizarre argument that the Matthew Shepard hate crimes bill would lead to a legalization of necrophilia, pedophilia, and bestiality. Later in the speech, after reading lengthy passages from the Bible against homosexuality, Gohmert said that taking away “moral teaching in America” would create a situation similar to that of Germany in the “1920’s and 1930’s” when a “little guy with a mustache” took over…

    Is this the kind of crap, taxpayers are paying our elected officials to say? Why this isn’t a bigger story is beyond me.

    Sorry Rep. Gohmert, but there are Gay people in Texas, and right in your district. Aren’t you their public servant too? Vile statements like yours are beyond the pale. I hope all the people in Texas get together an vote your homophobic-ass out of office. Peace out. 😉

  2. “necrophilia, pedophilia, and bestiality”

    Oh my,

    “necrophilia, pedophilia, and bestiality”

    Oh my…

    this dude is another closet case waiting for the right bathroom stall to be liberated.

      I thought the same thing. HBO ‘OutRage’ producers should give him a call. There should be no room in our political discourse for these types of outrageous claims.

    Hey Rep. Gohmert, Rachel Maddow caught your little act. She will be covering you on her show tomorrow night. Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy… 🙂

  4. I agree… he is out of control.

    Well, tell Rachel to let her guest speak instead of putting her words in their mouth. Then tell her to have about 10 percent of her show for opposing viewpoints…. Then maybe some people will watch and you can cheer when she catches something like this.
