GOHMERT! Religious Conservatives Laugh as Louie Says Hillary Is “Mentally Impaired”

The Texas Congressman who thinks “terror babies” are a threat to America’s existence, who got upset about the possibility of “gay space colonies,” and once claimed Obama sent soldiers to Africa so they could catch Ebola, bring it back to America, and infect us all, is in Washington DC speaking to the far right Values Voter Summit today, and he made one of his famous “jokes” about Hillary Clinton being “mentally impaired.”

The audience of “religious” conservatives thought this was hilarious, because nothing screams “piety” like making fun of a woman’s intelligence.

The tea party favorite from East Texas called the Democratic nominee for president “mentally impaired,” a line that drew approving laughter Friday at a gathering of religious conservatives.

[…]

“I’d like to elect a godly man, but we don’t have that choice,” Gohmert was heard telling attendees before he took the stage at the Values Voters Summit, an annual event hosted by the socially conservative Family Research Council.

Moments later, he was telling the half-filled ballroom: “You don’t make fun of people who are impaired, or special needs.”

It initially sounded like a scolding aimed at Trump, who publicly mocked a physically impaired journalist — footage now used in Clinton ads questioning his character and fitness for high office. Then came Gohmert’s punch line: “And whether you like her or not, Hillary Clinton has made clear she is mentally impaired. This is not somebody you should be making fun of.”

[…]

“We need to be praying for Hillary Clinton. There’s special needs there. There’s mental impairment,” Gohmert said.

Now that’s some high quality right wing humor.

Gohmert is so mentally handicapped that he doesn’t know he’s handicapped. This seems to be true of most of the far-right.

Actually, it appears to be going on in DC as usual:

The taunt came despite the fact that Gohmert came late to his support of GOP nominee Donald Trump. He stumped for Sen. Ted Cruz throughout the primaries. And even Friday morning, in the hallway outside a Washington hotel ballroom before his speech, Gohmert acknowledged that Trump isn’t his ideal candidate.

“I’d like to elect a godly man, but we don’t have that choice,” Gohmert was heard telling attendees before he took the stage at the Values Voters Summit, an annual event hosted by the socially conservative Family Research Council.

It’s a Dallas newspaper reporting it, but the event is in DC.

Re-posting from downstairs. I pulled a CL!

I saw this this morning in Josh Marshall’s Twitter feed.

She talks about what she sees when she looks at HRC’s face, which is so often called ‘cold, walled off, calculating’. As the son of a woman who was told by her boss that ‘of course’ she was paid less than a less experienced male coworker with a similar job description, because ‘he has a family to raise’, I can relate.

It’s really amazing how far women have come just in my lifetime, and Clinton actually suffers for that, because she came up at a time when women had to be so careful, to thread the needle between being too feminine and thus not taken seriously, and not feminine enough, and thus written off as a ‘bull dyke’.

I have to admit, I find myself terribly disappointed with the Millennial women who just don’t get it, who take for granted that they can be WOMEN and still be taken seriously in school or in the work world, who have options their mothers and grandmothers never did, BECAUSE their mothers and grandmothers learned to be disciplined like Hillary is in order to get anywhere.

On this, I always hark back to ‘Mad Men’, because although it FOCUSED on Don Draper, womanizer, it was really ABOUT women and how the 1960s changed everything for them. There’s one scene I’ll always remember - the episode had focused on 3 women: Joan, the brilliant Office Manage who kept the place running, but was largely seen as just a pair of boobs; Dr. Faye Miller, the Psychologist who was hired to do marketing surveys; and Peggy Olson, who was hired as a secretary but whose talent led to her becoming first a copy writer, and then a big wheel in Creative.

All three highly capable, driven women. Joan and Faye, of an earlier generation, had to choose among limited options. Joan chose to use her looks, to sleep with the boss, while being incredibly competent, knowing she’d never be taken seriously, all the while looking for The Man to marry and leave the professional world - which she ultimately did and found unsatisfying. Faye chose to be coldly professional, to remain unmarried and avoid any suggestion of sleeping her way up, leaving her ultimately with only her profession.

Peggy, part of a younger generation, was able to forge her own path in ways the other two could not.

As they get in the elevator, the two older women look resigned. Peggy looks tired but happy.

On this topic of religious conservatives, VVS, and some comments raised downstairs on where are the Christians who are renouncing the ugliness being perpetrated in their name, just a few days ago Mullah Mohler (and yes, I continue to call him that for good reason) ran an interview with Alan Jacobs who has a recent piece in Harpers lamenting about the lack of Christian intellectuals, and listening to the interview and reading Jacob’s piece I’m struck about how un-self-aware they are.

Maybe I’ll do a Page on it… but there is a self-reinforcing blindness that is going on, whereby wanna-be “intellectuals” can’t seem to grasp that one can’t be a vigilant religious dogmatist while simultaneously being open to whatever discoveries are made about humans, life, and the universe.

To these people (like Mohler and Jacobs), having skill in language seems to be paramount. I maintain that religions often get centered around the magick of words and Mohler and Jacobs are unwittingly providing another example.

They seem to believe that being able to write lengthy, articulate essays on topics is sufficient to given them value to the larger intellectual enterprise in which we humans are engaging. This is the problem with Dreher and Kimball and all that ilk, who like to produce fancy publications with articles written for a level of education well above that the average Drumpfskind supporter will be comfortable with… yet the substance of said articles is still the same old crap one can find on Tea Party “patriot” websites, only dressed with fancier clothes.

That Alan Jacobs can go on Albert Mohler’s podcast and not sense the irony is an indication that though he laments the loss of “Christian intellectuals” he himself is clueless or dishonest. Mohler, when he took over the lead seminary of the largest Protestant denomination the US, purged from the faculty those who were not correct enough in his eyes.

And yet these people lament the loss of “intellectuals” in their midst.

The hypocrisy is great.

[Embedded content]Of all the damage Trump can do to the American conservative movement, making it pro-Putin rather than pro-freedom could be the most serious.

spot on

as with everything else trump has said so far, if you dont publicly, loudly unequivocally and actively denounce this garbage, you support and agree with it. go putin!

Ha. Just got an email from a Republican friend with a link to the Washington Post article about Trump’s RT interview. My friend’s comment: “Trump has got to be a Clinton plant. I’m now convinced of it.”

The Party of Personal Responsibility™

They can’t take responsibility for the fact that the GOP willingly voted for Trump over all the other clowns in the primaries. They can’t accept that they chose him, and no one forced him on the party. He was willingly accepted, not only by the voters, but by leading GOP politicians. He was nominated and Clinton had nothing to do with any of it.

If he’s a Clinton plant, then it was poor planning, because that fucker’s within striking distance.

hes not a plant. too many other moving parts had to fall into place to get this stage.

republicans voted for and support him
simple as that

Here’s something I never even thought of: If 8 million Americans abroad vote

Only 12% of Americans abroad vote, because the process is so complex. But not this year! Avaaz has partnered with Overseas Voter Foundation to build a dead-simple tool that makes overseas voting a piece of cake!

The email alert I got went on to say:

Registration closes in days — we need to get this tool RIGHT AWAY to every American we or our friends know - share it with EVERYONE

Many of us who can’t vote in the US have felt helpless to stop this rise of proto-fascism. Now we can help, by helping our US friends to get in the fight. The crazy thing is no one else is doing this, not even Hillary Clinton’s campaign!

Every bit helps…

WOW! Top story in the National Enquirer!!!

A publication run by a friend of Trump and not taken seriously by the real world.

By the way…I just can’t stop laughing at Louie from the page post. I can’t stop because I never started. He sure can deliver a joke with all the “uhs” and stops and starts. I think we know who is brain damaged.

I would assume it is in the state of last residency (as typically is counted for taxes, etc.) and that their votes are treated like any other absentee ballot.
