Louie Gohmert: Gays Shouldn't Serve In The Military Because Massages Will Make Them Vulnerable To Terrorism

Rep. Louie Gohmert was an in-studio guest on the "Point Of View" radio program yesterday, where he went off on a bizarre tangent about Ancient Greece in trying to make the case that allowing gays to serve in the military "is not a good idea."

The Texas Republican had been railing against the Obama administration's decision to send several thousand members of the U.S. military to Western Africa to assist in the effort to control the Ebola outbreak, saying that it was just the latest example of the administration demonstrating its fundamental disdain for the military.

Somehow that discussion eventually prompted him to launch into criticism of the repeal of the Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy in the most perfectly Gohmert-esque fashion imaginable.

"I've had people say, 'Hey, you know, there's nothing wrong with gays in the military. Look at the Greeks,'" he said. "Well, you know, they did have people come along who they loved that was the same sex and would give them massages before they went into battle. But you know what, it's a different kind of fighting, it's a different kind of war and if you're sitting around getting massages all day ready to go into a big, planned battle, then you're not going to last very long. It's guerrilla fighting. You are going to be ultimately vulnerable to terrorism and if that's what you start doing in the military like the Greeks did ... as people have said, 'Louie, you have got to understand, you don't even know your history.' Oh yes I do. I know exactly. It's not a good idea":

'It's Despicable': Glenn Beck Says Girls In Anti-Sexism Video Have Been Scarred For Life

Yesterday, the organization FCKH8.com released a video featuring a bunch of young girls railing against inequality and sexism while dropping lots of F-bombs in the process and Glenn Beck is predictably outraged, calling the video "despicable" and saying that the parents who allowed their daughters to appear in the video have scarred them for life.

"No parent says to a six year-old girl, 'Hey, hey, hey, you can say this,'" Beck declared. "Go ahead. It's cool. Use the F-word. Drop the F-bomb a few times. Nobody says that. Nobody! Nobody who is a decent parent ever would say that."

"It's despicable," he continued. "This is going to scar them. This is setting their feet on a path, they have shaped these girls and taught these girls something that you will never be able to unteach them":

Klingenschmitt: Gay Activists 'Want Your Soul'

On his "Pray In Jesus Name" program today, Colorado pastor and GOP state house candidate Gordon Klingenschmitt railed against a situation in Kentucky in which a t-shirt printing business was found to have violated the city's nondiscrimination ordinance when it refused to print up shirts for a local gay organization, which he cited to declare that it is the goal of gay activists to force Christians to violate God's law and end up in Hell.

Insisting that measures which bar discrimination against gay customers are a violation of the First Amendment, Klingenschmitt proclaimed that gay rights activists are driven by a demonic spirit that seeks to force Christians to "disobey God" so that they will wind up in Hell.

"They want your soul," Klingenschmitt said. "They won't be satisfied with your money. They don't really want the t-shirts. They want your soul. They want you to disobey God so that you go to Hell with them. It's not enough that they go to Hell for disobeying God, they want you to disobey God so that we all go to Hell. That's the Devil's goal in the end":

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 10/21/14

  • Mat Staver has resigned from his position as dean of the Liberty University School of Law.
  • Samuel Rodriguez declares that the supposed threat to religious liberty is "the single greatest civil rights threat of our time."
  • Jerry Boykin and Kamal Saleem have written a novel together!
  • Gina Miller declares that Christians must fight gay marriage with everything that they have because this is "just the beginning of the war on our freedoms being waged by the soldiers of Sodom West.  It is more important than ever that Christians and other right-minded people resist this evil movement."
  • Finally, BarbWire continues to provide a venue for all sorts of virulently anti-gay columnists to post their bigoted rants: "[I]f you have a problem with me using terms like 'queer,' 'homosexual,' and 'sodomite,' you might want to check yourself. This is what these people are. They are not 'gay.' They are degenerates and they have your children as a target."

Wayne Allyn Root: Remove Obama From Office 'Before He Kills All Of Us'

Last week, right-wing pundit, activist, crackpot, and conspiracy theorist Wayne Allyn Root appeared on the "Point of View" radio program to warn that President Obama must be removed from office immediately "before he kills all of us."

Fuming that Obama has not sealed the southern border or banned travel to the U.S. from West African countries, Root warned that Ebola-ridden terrorists would soon be walking into America and infecting the entire population and Obama is allowing this to happen because he was "sent here to destroy this country."

"One man is taking down the entire America," Root declared. "This was his plan. It's not a mistake. It's not a coincidence. It's not fate. One man was sent here to destroy this country. I don't know who it was. Was it the Soviet Union? Was it communist forces? I don't know who it is. Was it the Bilderbergs that want the world under One World control? I don't know, Kerby. All I know is there's someone in office who is either mentally unstable or is so incompetent that he has got to be removed, or he is purposely taking down this country."

"We've got to remove him from office and fast," Root said, "before he kills all of us":

Alveda King Is 'Very Disturbed' By President Obama's 'Cousin Pookie' Reference

While campaigning for a couple of Democratic candidates over the weekend, President Obama urged voters to grab their friends, co-workers, and even get "Cousin Pookie" off of the couch and encourage them all to vote in the upcoming elections.

Obama has cited "Cousin Pookie" since at least 2008, as Mediaite explained, "as a means [of] energizing minority communities that may not be as inclined to vote as others" but this latest incident seems to have outraged Alveda King, who says she is "very disturbed" by it.

Speaking to J.D. Hayworth on his Newmax radio show today, King attacked Obama for apparently disrespecting the "educated, intelligent people in our nation who are concerned about the moral bankruptcy" of this country before bizarrely holding up a recent issue of Newsmax's magazine featuring Al Sharpton on the cover, which then sent her off on some incoherent tangent.

"I think President Obama has anointed Al Sharpton. Well, for me, God has anointed Jesus of Nazareth," she said. "And that's who my uncle Martin Luther King, Jr. served and my daddy A.D. King and Daddy King, my grandaddy. Read 'King Rules,' my book."

"So to bring up 'Cousin Pookie' as if that could give us solutions to these terrible problems, I'm very disturbed about that reference," King stated:

'And So It Begins': Glenn Beck, The Shemitah, And The End Of America

As a general rule, whatever movie or book that Glenn Beck has recently seen or read is absolutely amazing and contains all of the answers that America needs at this moment and so everyone should see or read it immediately!

As Beck is currently reading Jonathan Cahn's "The Mystery of the Shemitah: The 3,000-Year-Old Mystery That Holds the Secret of America's Future, the World's Future, and Your Future!," naturally he is convinced that it is the most important book currently in print and so he is talking about it a lot on his radio and television shows and lecturing his staff about it, as he did during yesterday's televised staff meeting.

This book is a follow-up to Cahn's "The Harbinger," which was quite possibly one of the stupidest books ever written, purporting to explain how the 9/11 terrorist attacks were foretold in the Book of Isaiah and how the subsequent construction of the Freedom Tower was an act of defiance against God that will lead to further judgment.

The Shemittah is a Sabbath year on the Jewish calendar during which fields are to be left fallow, no agriculture is to take place, and debts are to be forgiven. It began last month and, according to Cahn's new book, these requirements are going to be imposed upon America in the coming year by God whether we like it or not.

Beck is, of course, entirely convinced that this is true, telling his staff that because America made an "Abrahamic covenant with God" upon the nation's founding, we are being held to the obligations of the Shemitah year and "it is wiping us out" because "God is warning us."

"I don't think it ends the way we want it to end," Beck said. "But we've entered a new period. I can feel it. We've entered a new period. And so it begins":

For those who may not know, "and so it begins" is Beck's shorthand phrase for his belief that everything he's been warning about for the last several years is now all coming true.
