As the GOP grows increasingly unhinged, America’s dumbest Congressman Louis Gohmert (R-Texas) reveals the true reason for his party’s adamant stance against immigration reform.
The undocumented immigrants crossing our borders are future Democrats bearing terrorism and EBOLA! Seriously, you can’t make this stuff up.
Here’s what Gohmert actually said when he joined Tim Constantine on the Capitol Hill Show to discuss immigration:
“Because they see people coming across as undocumented Democrats. And so, they want to keep the surge of people coming in illegally, even though it includes a big spike in Other-Than-Mexicans, OTMs as we call them. It includes a spike in people from countries where terrorism abounds. We have people coming in from countries where Ebola is located.”
Apparently, Gohmert’s idiot colleagues in Congress see him as some sort of immigration expert. Gohmert explained that after going on the standard day-time border tours with Homeland Security, Gohmert takes them on his unauthorized night tours.
According to Gohmert, one congressman said:
“Lemme tell you, I did that tour, and then that night I went out with Louie Gohmert, to the border, and I didn’t learn anything until I went out with Louis to the border.”
We shudder to think of these Republicans’ secret, night-time escapades.
Gohmert also relates a tale about how five years ago he and haunted ice sculpture Rep. Steve “Calves Like Cantaloupes” King attended a conference on immigration in the U.K. He and Constantine snickered over how those Brits were “deeply offended” by term “illegal immigration” and prefer the term “irregular migration,” and also how liberals prefer the more neutral term “migrants.”
Then Constantine sarcastically suggested that we call undocumented immigrants “pilgrims.”
“See, I wanna call them ‘pilgrims.’ Since we’re going to make it wholesome, warm, and fuzzy, let’s just dress people coming across the Rio Grande in little black and white costumes and call them PILGRIMS.”
Louis Gohmert also pointed out that coming from a violent country — as many Central Americans do — is “not a basis for asylum.” Which means that, unfortunately for Gohmert’s consituents, they’re stuck in Texas.
