I often wonder about asshats like Louie Gohmert, a repugnant Republican from Texas. Well, not often, I guess, mainly when they open their mouths and shiz like this falls out. It makes me wonder if the people who elected him, who made the conscious choice of picking his name in the polling booth have actually heard what he says. And, if they have, and they still vote for him, well, then the people of his district in Texas are the real asshats. For the record, what Louie says here, what he claims may happen, is an outright lie. I've read up on this, apparently, Louie has not.
Congressman Louie Gohmert:
"If you're oriented toward animals, bestiality, then, you know, that's not something that can be used, held against you or any bias be held against you for that. Which means you'd have to strike any laws against bestiality, if you're oriented toward corpses, toward children, you know, there are all kinds of perversions, [...] pedophiles or necrophiliacs or what most would say is perverse sexual orientations but the trouble is, we made amendments to eliminate pedophiles from being included in the definition. [...] But people have always been willing to give up their liberties, their freedoms in order to gain economic stability. It happened in 1920 and 1930's. Germany gave up their liberties to gain economic stability and they got a little guy with a mustache, who was the ultimate hate monger. And this is scary stuff we're doing here when we take away what has traditionally been an important aspect of moral teaching in America.
