Life With Gohmert: “Stop Slapping Israel Around, Obama! It’s Time to Bomb Iran!”
Our favorite batshit crazy Republican Congressman, the wonderfully loony Louie Gohmert, went on the radio show of anti-gay hate group leader Tony Perkins yesterday and declared that President Obama should stop slapping Israel around and just start a war with Iran right away! Bomb them back to the Stone Age, right now! God wants it, and who are we to say no to God?
“We need to make clear to Iran: You can play these silly games with our president that buys into them and our secretary of state, but the American people aren’t buying it and you’re going to pay a price,” Gohmert said.
“I’m hoping and praying the president will realize, despite the agenda he has that has put Christians in jeopardy around the world, that he will not want to leave the Democratic Party so devastated that they won’t recover for many decades,” Gohmert continued, “that maybe he’ll start being more helpful to Israel instead of slapping them around as an unwelcomed visitor and start treating them like a friend. And maybe once he starts doing that he’ll realize we do need to bomb Iran’s nuclear facilities that we know of and anything that they move to fix, we bomb that as well.”
Gohmert also pushed the completely bogus conspiracy theory that Obama “threatened to shoot down Israeli planes if they had gone to take out Iran’s nuclear capability.” The allegation is based on a Kuwaiti outlet’s spurious report which cited an anonymous source in the Israeli government.
“I’m just grateful that Netanyahu had announced there will be no two-state solution because, as you mentioned, [End Times author] Joel Rosenberg, he loves to point out in his favorite book, Joel, that Chapter 3, God says I am going to bring down judgment on nations that divide Israel. So I’d kind of hate to be a part of the nation that divides Israel,” he added.
