We’ve reached the point that when a conservative says or does something incredibly stupid, it hardly garners much attention. Or, as is the case today, there is more than one incredibly stupid thing conservatives have said that are competing for attention.
Today’s top two “Wow Conservatives are Really, Really Stupid” stories both hail from, where else? Texas.
On Thursday, Rep. Louie Gohmert in a radio interview added to his list of hair-brained excuses for opposing any reasonable gun control, by including the fear of Sharia law in America if gun control is passed. Get it? Idiots in Texas are convinced that President Obama is a militant islamist, born in Kenya, that would enact gun control as a step toward moving America towards Sharia Law.
Here’s the scary part: This crazy fuck was actually elected to the US House of Representatives.
We also learned that there are no quality colleges or law schools in the state of Texas. Which would explain why Ted Cruz had to leave the state to get a proper education in them ‘dar liberal schools in the Northeast. After high school, poor Ted had to leave Texas and go to Princeton and Harvard Law School for some of that good ‘ol book learning.
Well, it sure was a good thing out young Texan was on his feet, because, as reported this week, he said in a speech two and half years ago, that the faculty at Harvard Law was, “there were twelve [professors] who would say they were Marxists who believed in the Communists overthrowing the United States government.”
Now, of course this was said in the context of criticizing President Obama as a radical Marxist. So Ted Cruz basically was calling out the President as a Marxist for attending the exact same law school he himself attended.
Here’s the scary part: This crazy fuck was actually elected to the US Senate.
Let’s be honest, Karl Rove and his ideas to make the GOP a tad bit more moderate will be squashed like a bug. And who can really believe that Karl Rove isn’t part of the Marxist orthodoxy himself. After all, he is Karl Rove….not Carl Rove.
