Republicans Say the Stupidest Things Part 7: Louie Gohmert On the Violence in Gaza
With a blazing lack of common sense, good ol' Gohmert Pyle has placed the blame for the Israeli bombing of Gaza on... wait for it... Iran!
From the video of his speech as shown on The Raw Story , here is the "logic" in his tiny little mind.
1. Iranians don't like Jews and they teach their children to hate Jews.
Okay. I'll buy that.
2. “It is time to cut off every dime of American money going to anyone who has any kind of relationship with Hamas or those killing in the Middle East, and especially in Israel."
I'll buy that, too. Now for the convoluted part. From these two points Gohmert concluded that:
3. "It is time to bomb Iran’s nuclear capabilities. It is time for the United States, if we are not going to stop Iran’s nukes, then let Israel do it. A friend will not put another friend in this kind of jeopardy.”
Talk about faulty logic! How does he even get to the third point? It's not Iran that's attacking Gaza, but Israel. It sounds like he wants to trigger all-out was, not end the hostilities.
I wonder how much stock he and his family have in companies that make military arms.
