Speaking on Joyce Kaufman’s radio show, Texas tea partier and congressman Louie Gohmert addressed a recent hearing where the congressman started yelling at a female ICE official.
The subject of the “war on women” came up, and Gohmert justified himself by mentioning that his chief of staff is a woman.
“It’s usually the liberals that care more about race, they care more about gender and all kinds of, sexual habits,” he continued. “We don’t care about that stuff. Are you going to do the job, are you going to do what’s right, are you going to be honest? Those are the things that we’re more concerned about. In fact, we [conservatives] are coming closer to the dream of Martin Luther King, Jr. because we care more about the content of the character than we do the color of anybody’s skin.
“I could care less what race somebody is coming into America unless they’re coming to do harm, and even then I don’t care what race it is, I care about are you going to come do harm?” he added.
Kaufman chimed in, saying that immigrants are the ones who are dividing America because by maintaining their languages and cultures they “force the indigenous people” to “ become tribal.”
