GOP Rep. Gohmert Unleashed: Necrophilia and Pedophilia and Bestiality! Oh My!

October 7, 2009

(ChattahBox)—Leave it to Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) to go off the deep end on the floor of Congress with a nonsensical hate-filled rant, which hit all of the right-wing low points, tying homosexuality with necrophilia, pedophilia, bestiality and even Nazism.

Speaking utter nonsense is nothing new for the Texas Republican, but claiming that the Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Act, would lead to the legalization of sex with animals, corpses and children is beyond the pale, even for Gohmert.

Gohmert’s rant occurred Tuesday evening during a special session of floor speeches for a repeal of the current “Don’t Act Don’t Tell” policy towards gays in the military. He began his bizarre homophobic speech, calling the repeal of the “Don’t Act Don’t Tell” policy “perverse…social experimentation” and said that our soldiers are being “held hostage by a sociological attack.”

Gohmert then veered into attacking the Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Act, which includes protections for LGBT victims of hate crimes. He said that offering protection against hate crimes based on sexual orientation would lead to the legalization of necrophilia, pedophilia and bestiality, because the interpretation of sexual orientation is “wide-open.”

“There are all kinds of perversions, what most of us would call perversions, Some would say it sounds like fun, but most of us would say were perversions, and there have been laws against them. And this bill says whatever you are orientated towards sexually that cannot be a source of bias against someone,” said Gohmert.

The Republican Congressman then went into greater detail, describing a frightening future where people getting their kicks from having sex with corpses, animals and children would enjoy hate crimes protections, according to 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.”

Louie Gohmert then took a bizarre right turn from sexual perversions to racism and Nazis, claiming he is not a racist because he once voted for Alan Keyes. The excitable Gohmert then whipped out a bible and began reading biblical verses against homosexuality.

Gohmert then reasoned that a lack of morality leads to economic instability, which would lead to a “little guy with a mustache.”

“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,” said Gohmert during his rambling House floor speech.

    Allowing Texas neo-Nazis to breed is perverse. I’ve been to Tyler, and the people there wanted him in Washington because Gohmert is a useless drone; the further away he is from Texas, the better, they reasoned.

    He’d be happier in Argentina, with the rest of the ex-pat Nazis.

    anal sex is an animalistic act so i don’t see why gays are so upset about it. they call each other “bears”, “pigs”, and “horse hung”. frankly, it’s completely accurate.
