CNN and other news outlets reported on the story about a heavily armed man who attacked an Aurora, Colorado, movie theater early Friday that was showing “The Dark Knight Rises.” Reports state that the man tossed tear gas into the theater before opening fire, killing 12 and wounding 38. It didn’t take long for the GOP / Tea Party to jump into the fray with their utterly, totally, complete and unequivocal tin-foil hat batshittery. Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) (pictured) said that these shootings were a result of “ongoing attacks on Judeo-Christian beliefs.”
Tea Bagging Fools…
This is indicative of usual ignorant stupidity that the Tea Party regularly spouts off. I actually think this is some sort of record between the occurrence of an event and the Tea Party responding with a completely irresponsible and utterly idiotic statement about their God releasing wrath for.
Attacks on Christianity, you say? Too fucking bad. These fundamental assholes deserve every word that is directed at them for their regular attacks on women, the LGBT community, the poor, the sick, the disabled and anyone else who doesn’t agree with their hateful, bigoted, discriminatory and theocratic drek.
When I read crap like this it just shows how far down into the muck of stupidity and ignorance these folks have slid into. The fact is that people died, including a three-month-old child, at the hands of a man named James Holmes, 24, of Aurora, Colorado. We don’t know why, yet, and perhaps we will never know. However, statements like the one made by Rep. Gohmert are not just the bottom of the barrel, but the slime under a barrel that is sitting at the bottom of a land fill.
From Huffington Post:
Sorry for the video bleeding over into the right-hand columns. I screwed with it for an hour, and have given up on getting it to fit correctly. As well, if you can’t see this video, here’s the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qwqe0lNnUqI
Rep. Gohmert states,
“People say … where was God in all of this?” Gohmert said. “We’ve threatened high school graduation participations, if they use God’s name, they’re going to be jailed … I mean that kind of stuff. Where was God? What have we done with God? We don’t want him around. I kind of like his protective hand being present.”
The level of batshittery that regularly comes from the Tea Party / GOP is mind-blowing. I need a neck brace for my head shaking, and a case of antibiotic ointment to treat the injuries to my face from the constant palming. These people are more dangerous to our freedom than people like Pat Robertson and his ilk, because they are in the position to make and/or effect fundamentalist Christian theology into policy and legislation.
Basically, this particular idiot from Texas is stating that he believes his god got so pissed off that his only choice was to take the lives of random people in a random movie theater via a senseless massacre. This only solidifies what Dawkins says about their deity:
“The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.”
Who the fuck in their right mind would worship a god like this? Seriously, the people who actually agree the putrescent slime that comes out of the mouths of these backward, socially retarded, ignorant Tea Party douchnozzles are completely, totally, unequivocally certifiably mentally ill. What’s even crazier is that there are enough people who fall in line with the theocratic vomit that is regularly spewed forth from the maws of these bumbling idiots to win them elections.
Well, they can take their twisted theology and shove it up their asses. At least their heads will have some company….
