As you get older, political discussions within your social groups happen more frequently. Having been raised in a small town, I stay conservative on things like hunting animals for food, the fourth amendment, and the death penalty – because let’s face it, pieces of shit like this don’t deserve to live. But I think that’s about as conservative as any sane person can get anymore. Here are some quotes from Republican Congressmen around our country. Below the quotes I posted videos to Bill Mahr’s Craziest Congressman clips from last month.
Joe Barton – Joe Linus Barton (born September 15, 1949) is a Republican politician, representing Texas’s 6th congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives since 1985, and a member of the Tea Party Caucus.
- Humans couldn’t be the cause of climate change because in the bible the flood was caused by God, not humans.
- Carbon Dioxide isn’t bad for you because it’s found in Pierre.
- If we build too many wind farms it could slow down the wind which will cause temperatures to go up.
Steve King – Steven Arnold “Steve” King (born May 28, 1949) is the U.S. Representative for Iowa’s 4th congressional district, serving in Congress since 2003. He is a member of the Republican Party.
- After a snowy day in America Steve said: The liberals, the environmentalists, the Al Gores of the world were wrong on science.
- The Boston bombers were Saudi nationals so we should re-think immigration reform.
- A man can impregnate a 13-year-old girl and then take that girl off the playground, haul her across a state line, force her to get an abortion to eradicate evidence of his crime, and bring her back and drop her off at the swing set. And that’s not against the law in the United States.
Louie Gohmert – Louis Buller “Louie” Gohmert, Jr. (born August 18, 1953) is an American politician and current Republican U.S. Representative from Texas’s First Congressional District.
- After the Boston bombings he said: Obama has so many Muslim brotherhood members, they are just making bad decisions for America.
- Muslim terrorists are moving to Mexico, learning Spanish, and training to come into this country by acting Hispanic.
- When making a case about how the oil pipe line is a good thing he said: When two Caribou want to go on a date they head over to the pipeline.
Scott DesJarlais – Scott Eugene DesJarlais is an American physician currently serving as U.S. Representative for Tennessee’s 4th congressional district after winning re-election to a second term on November 6, 2012. He is a member of the Republican Party.
- Says he’s pro-life and pro-family. Has several affairs, two of which were his patients. Wife has has two abortions. Pressured one of the patients that he slept with into getting an abortion.
Paul Broun – Paul Collins Broun, Jr. is the U.S. Representative for Georgia’s 10th congressional district, serving since 2007. He is a member of the Republican Party and the Tea Party Caucus. On February 6, 2012, Broun announced that he plans to run for the U.S. Senate in the 2014.
- Said scientific data shows that the world is 9000 years old. (He sits on the committee of science)
- Scientists all over the world say that human based climate change is a hoax.
- All of that stuff I was taught about evolution, embryology, big bang theory, all that is lies straight from the pit of hell.
Michele Bachmann – Michele Marie Bachmann is an American Republican member of the United States House of Representatives, representing Minnesota’s 6th congressional district, a post she has held since 2007. Bachmann previously served in the Minnesota State Senate and is the first Republican woman to represent the state in Congress. She is a supporter of the Tea Party movement and a founder of the House Tea Party Caucus.
- The founding fathers worked tirelessly until slavery was no more in the United States.
- Planned Parenthood has vowed to become the lens crafters of abortions.
- The HPV vaccine causes mental retardation.
- There isn’t even one study that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas.
- It is horrific to know that in the African American community, 50 percent of all African American pregnancies in the United States end in abortion, 50 percent. That is a genocide of African Americans of the United States. It should not be. There are Americans all across this country who would love to adopt African American babies, but they can’t because 50 percent of all African American pregnancies today are ending in abortion.
Conclusion: This should be frightening to anyone, no matter what your political stance. We really need to educate ourselves when it comes to electing officials. Because let’s face it (I’m looking at you Texas) – the opposition might be a tree hugging Nancy boy who doesn’t believe in spankings, but at least he won’t tell you that windmills slow down the wind.
Look – if a 14-year-old kid still believes in Santa Claus I’m not going to fault him for that. It’s his belief, and he’s free to do what he wants. But if that kid is in charge of making decisions on a state level with issues that concern me, well then we have a problem.
