GOP Rep. Louie Gohmert: Guns Are Necessary To Protect Against Sharia Law
mediaite.com ^ | February 21, 2013 | Andrew Kirell

Posted on 02/21/2013 10:02:02 PM PST by Tailgunner Joe

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) told a conservative radio host this afternoon that he believes Americans must be allowed to own firearms to protect against the growing threat of “sharia law.”

Appearing on web-radio show The Voice of Freedom, Gohmert argued that Congress ought to vote down any restrictive new gun regulations because American gun-owners need their firearms as a defense against Muslims who want to subvert the United States Constitution with the Islamic moral/political code.

“[The Second Amendment] is for our protection and the Founders’ quotes make that very, very clear. Including against a government that would run amuck,” he said, before explaining: “We’ve got some people that think sharia law should be the law of the land — forget the Constitution. But the guns are there, that Second Amendment is there, to make sure all of the rest of the amendments are followed.”

Gohmert has long expressed a belief that elements of radical Islam have infiltrated the United States government. Last fall, he vocally led the charge to investigate Clinton aide Huma Abedin for what he suspected were ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. He has also led the push for congressional hearings on “creeping sharia law.”

I love Louie, He is a local fellow, but Louie Louie....

The Target is Obama at the moment.
He is the chap trying to disarm you.

Muhammed is bent on taking over too but he is 7K miles away.

Louie Gohmert

This is a man who is going places and has a very bright future. He's an Aggie, served in the military and a committed Christian Conservative. Gohmert knows that global warming is a fraud and supports drilling in ANWR and anywhere else there might be petroleum. Plus, he's very strong on the Second Amendment. At the age of only 59, he's primed for much bigger things as America will end the national nightmare in just over three years from now.

Muslims are in DC.

In government.

There is, or was, a settlement in Red House, VA. Everyone there dressed just as they would in a taliban controlled village in Afghanistan.

There are many others, some very large as in Detroit, and some very small as in Red House.

The threat is real and it is not 7,000 miles away.

His servant is in the White House. Louie Ghomert is right on this since the Obama regime is dismantling the Christian foundation of our country to make way for an Islam theocracy.

You are both correct. I think this statement may end up backfiring & hurting the cause a lttle, at least.

I agree with you, and he ought to be prepared for some heavy-duty Alinskyite sliming from CAIR and the Muslim-in-Chief;)

I don’t have time to analyze all the cultural and theological BS.

I only know that Obama is the Great Divider, and he is the community organizer that Divides the camp.

I imagine there are a world of folks that I would get along famously with if this fellow Obama was not pissing in the waters of life (COMMUNITY AGITATING)

I guess it’s just me, but it appears that he didn’t say what the Headline says he said.

Yeah I know, What Difference Does It Make?

“Americans must be allowed to own firearms”

I suppose we Americans don’t give a rat’s a** what any critter thinks we should be “allowed” to do.
I bought a Marlin .22 yesterday at Dunhams, and the two guys buying AR-15s, and the rest of the crowd buying firearms—as is their right—must feel the same way.
So thanks for the warm thoughts Louis. Now, balance the budget, impeach Barry—do your dam job.

muslims, nazis, or progressives (but I repeat myself)... the form of govt is not the reason for the 2nd amendment. it’s the actions of the govt and the ability, along with the other specific rights outlined in the bill of rights, to oppose those in power... thereby helping to insure our freedoms

The sad part in all this is that people simply refuse to believe their own eyes and ears. They refuse to accept that we are thoroughly infiltrated from the military to preschool with muslim supporters and outright jihadists.

And eventually, they will apologize to the swarthy guy with the sword or AK for soiling the new muslim lands with their kafir blood.

Because people are really that freaking stupid. And have been conditioned to give up their lives and the lives of their families rather than ‘offend’.

Think I’m being ridiculous? Ask yourselves why the families of Ft. Hood are getting the shaft and whose shafting them. Then reevaluate your thoughts of ‘ridiculous’.

His most self-damning words were “when the holy Koran was revealed.”

No one seems to pick up on that one. Revealed. Try it on.

Gohmert says it like it is. He’s got a way with words and whole heap of courage.

Good points

Some of these other posts in this thread are a little too much “Islam is a religion of peace” nonsense. Gohmert is spot on that we need to protect from encroaching Sharia law. People need to wake up

And they are building mosques everywhere, supposed to be for thier church services. But you look at the ones in egypt,lybia,iraq,afganistan etc. they do u se them for religious activities, but also use them as staging areas for arms,ammo and bomb making supplies.

They do, but they won’t. People get sick of me saying it all the time, but there is no functional difference between muslim, Democrat or GOP apologists. Each of them make excuses as to why their particular “Way, truth and light’ is what people ‘need’ to get behind, no matter how wrong, damaging or unAmerican/constitutional it may be.

While the GOP is not yet calling for sharia type BS (and the Dems are and have been), the logic is the same.

“It’s our only choice’.

No...it isn’t.

We don’t have to accept any of the above. And in fact, we are obligated, ethically, morally and constitutionally not to. But it doesn’t matter. We as a people have lost our pride. We have lost our purpose.

But gee...we ‘gained’ coexistance and other buzzwords. We won’t really miss those things. And who cares if a few people got killed. What difference does it make? The greater ‘good’ must be served!

When you have people catering to a death cult in the name of ‘good’ and do it with a straight face on global TV, it’s pretty much over. The only good thing about any of this is some of us will live to see these abject morons put to the sword with a look of shock on their faces...

On second thought, I take it back. They will go to their death in a state of victimized orgasmic/religious extacy.

Morons. Utter morons.
